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!
