Canal Challenge!

Well here it is the very last day of January! Winterlude will be upon us this weekend and we'll be going to the opening ceremonies across the bridge in Hull. In preparation, last week I DID make it on to the ice at a local rink. Unfortunately, I was less than stellar (although I was told I did a good job of at least STANDING UP on the ice!).

The last time I was skating was almost 20 years ago. You'd think I should be able to saunter out there wouldn't you? Why isn't it like riding a bike and when did this paranoia creep in? Well skating isn't that easy nowadays but I'm determined!

So here's yet another challenge! Will I do it in a week?
