ice skating

I have done ice skating since I was about 10 years old, never did lessons or fancy spins but I can hold my own on the ice and skate backwards long enough to impress the girls!

The noisy one has been busting my arse to go ice skating for years, and now we have a beautiful new rink in the docklands so we finally made it there on Friday with my team mate and all the babychinos.

It took a little bit of persuasion to get the froglet to believe that her fingers wouldn't be sliced off when she fell over. She has stunning black and blue bruises on her knees and claims that her arms are sore too.

they have pond hockey there and anyone can have a go at ice hockey on their rink that is just behind the main skating rink.

My team mate enjoyed herself and the babychinos all had a good time, with her middle one starting out saying that she couldn't do this after being on the ice for less than a minute (no joking!) and by the end of the session she was managing to skate in a fashion without holding on the whole time.

I hope to get down the rink again soon, the 10 year break was too long!
