Some people call these roller skates.
I like to call them “an accident waiting to happen”.
I haven’t roller skated for about 35 years, so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m still not sure why.
A friend lent me her skates.
It was pretty much a complete disaster! I clung to some railings for about 10 minutes then gave up.
I thought we had escaped injury at least, but the girl had taken a tumble while I wasn’t looking.
She is sporting a bruised and scraped tail bone, and a very sore wrist.
These should come with a health warning!
The holidays are nearly over.
We’ve spent lots of time away, and have a few things to do next week.
This week has been about home and pyjama days.
We did make it out for a walk today. The Littles spent more of their day up trees than on the ground!
Paddling pool, in the rain. Well, why not!
Saw this in a book shop today – I’m not convinced…
Don’t think we’ll be producing Vin du JoBart this year, but at least they’re changing colour.
Small but perfectly formed (hand for scale!)…
The three of them had a lovely day…
Looking at books.
Snuggling (sort of).
Plotting (for sure).
And wheels. Always wheels.
And while on a picnic, it’s compulsory to throw crisps in the air and try and catch them in your mouth.
Spotted on our way home. Unfortunately, I think they were moving faster than us…
Grandpa made her a mermaid tail. She was so thrilled – it’s the happiest she’s been all holiday (and she’s been pretty happy all week)!
He loved it, She spent half an hour waiting outside…
