Our local garden centre goes crazy at Christmas time, and so when we popped over to check out the decorations, we thought we'd have a go at ice skating on their outdoor rink for a bit of fun.
We had a lot of fun, even though we weren't very good, but the main problem was that ice skating rinks such as these are always so ridiculously busy at this time of the year. To make matters worse, there's always somebody who is a real show-off and loves to zoom around, weaving in and out of people like us, who are left wibbling and wobbling in their trail, like skittles that are not sure if they are going to fall over or not. And don't get us started on the actual staff, who just seem to stand in the middle of the rink getting in the way, checking their phones! We did have a good laugh though and are already planning to go again next year.
