One of the things on my Chrismas Bucket List was to go ice-skating, just because it makes me feel so Christmassy. I love London anyways as I was born and bred here, but at Christmas time it’s so lovely and holds such a special place in my heart.
We originally wanted to go to Somerset House but it was all booked up so we decided to go to NHM instead, as it was another place on my list. It was so beautiful, even though we went during the day so next time I want to go in the evening and stare at all the lights forever and ever.
I really don’t think I’m a very good skater, but I try every year just because the adrenaline rush is amazing and you’re never going to be the only one who’s struggling on the ice, believe me! It usually takes me around 10 minutes to shuffle along the ice and then I gain a little bit more confidence, and the next thing you know, I’m gliding along like a pro! (Only joking, I lean forward a bit and feel really cool, until I nearly fall flat on my face and have a mini heart attack. Oh, life!)
In all honesty, it is one of the most Christmassy things that I like to do and it is like a proper work out as well, so make sure you treat yourself to a hot chocolate afterwards (that’s the way those calorie things work right?)
Have you been ice-skating yet? Where did you go?
