went Ice-skating this evening at Somerset House and it was the most amazing and best thing ever... I forgot quite how much I love it and I do really need to learn properly. The only way I can describe it is being the nearest thing possible to flying. Gliding over the ice you have such a sense of freedom (or at least I know I will when I get good - really need to learn where the centre needs to be placed and which part of the blade to use!).
now all I need to do is find classes - am thinking of Queensway which has classes on a Wednesday evening! If anyone else fancies - let me know!
