Just got back. We went to JJB Sports in Hove and bought skates, helmuts and protective pads and skated in Hove Park for two hours :eek: :eek: :eek: It was fantastic - I think I shocked the kids (I know I shocked myself) cos I was great - only fell over once, whereas SD spent most of the time on the floor!

It was fab, really excellent but we're too knackered to go to the roller disco now! :rolleyes:

I had so much fun - haven't laughed that much in ages!! :p Nina got her first bike and was riding around like a little loony, and we had so many people walk past us laughing cos we were in stitches most of the time! Heartily recommended - if a 20 stone woman can get her skates on, there's no stopping anyone else! :eek:

You've got to give it a bash Isobel, it was hysterical! :D

Erm - how about no! lol - I've got an irrational fear of falling on my arris since my back injury a few years ago - it does look great fun though but I have all the balance of a wounded rhino and would therefore end up in A&E sooner than you could say 'very low calorie diet' LMTO!!

Shopping and horizontal gymnastics are my preferred exercises! hehe

Hi DQ

What a great way to spend a family afternoon.... and very very brave.

Must pluck up courage myself I really must as my eldest loves ice skating (he learnt at Kindergarten when we lived in Canada) and he really needs to exercise more but isn't a natural at other sports and gets left out at school at other sports even though he tries to join in.

Your afternoon is a great motivator to me to take your example and have a go!

It really really was!! Dh was following Nina on her bike ( i.e. walking and smoking) and me and the other three girls were all over the place! :cool:

Sounds great. I've never had the nerve to don skates
(well not since my teens anyway)

Andrew and I do walk on other people's walls though :eek:

The last time I skated I was 11 y/o :eek: I used to skate to the local library and stuff as I had to share my bike with my sister. Never been on inline skates before and it is definitely different! :p

I love walking on walls too :D
