Deliberately not, having read at an early age and taken to heart the neat embossed lettering around the lid of the Harpic tin
"KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN"
The lovely Sandra made it quite clear at a very early stage of our relationship that she would try aviation and motorcycling but NOTHING that involved tents and communal showers or babies.
That said, I did previously acquire a temporary stepson whose mother was equally unimpressed with anything involving canvas and damp sleeping bags.
I am sure my cyber-daughter might give it a try, but I really would rather not, even with her company. And at thirty-something I'm not sure she falls into the category of small child.
We appear to have inherited a ten-year old for the weekend and I am hoping I can tempt him away from Fortnite or Minecraft (I forget which) long enough to teach him the joys of beer and talking rubbish, but please don't tell his Dad.
