I stacked it (stack it = Aussie phrase for fell over) big time at the outdoor skating rink today which is at Yorkshire’s winter wonderland. It’s a superb rink by the way and much fun was had by all. But I got a little bit overly confident in my abilities and tried one of those stopping maneuvers in which you turn your feet out and then circle 3600. It didn’t work. My arms and legs flew in multiple directions and I slammed into the ice to the sound of a collective gasp from an audience of spectators. Lots of people fell over today but no one else got the gasp. Why me? I am feeling bruised and sorry for myself now. Thankfully though, my accident was towards the end of a very enjoyable session. We’ll definitely be going back.
