Ice Skating

As much as I love the sun and beaches and warmth, there's something a little extra special about this time of the year. I love layering and wrapping up warm up, in gloves and beanies, and I love walking around London in the crisp morning air, surrounded by all of London's Christmas decorations.

(Can you spot me? I'm the one right in the middle while everyone else is at the sides)

By far my favourite thing about this time of the year is Ice Skating. From November - January there are a number of pop up ice skating rinks all over the city and each year I try my hand at as many as I can. It is my favourite thing in the world to do and I often claim it is the one and only skill I actually have - I've been doing it for years and no longer fall. Instead I chase around the attractive ice marshals and take pictures of people falling over to laugh about later - muahaha.

Last week I grabbed my favourite buds: Danielle, Kathryn and Marin and we went over to Somerset House to play on their outdoor Ice Rink. As it was midday on a Thursday, it was pretty empty meaning we could all skate around with no traffic.


The cold breeze hitting my face as I glide on the ice always makes me giddy!


What are your favourite winter activities?

Looks like great fun. I went to the ice rink a few years ago in Bristol. I always have to go when it is quiet as I am scared of getting knocked over.

Cafe Fashionista said... cute are you in your ice skates, Sherin?! Now I want to go ice skating!! :)

Great pictures, Sherin! They haven´t put up the open ice skating rink here yet, probably because it´s always raining and not snowing but just looking at you now, I´d like to try my luck again although I´m terrible with balancing. ;)

You are too cute and fun! I envy your skating skills. I tried ice skating for the first time five years ago and found myself sprawled out on the ice (several times). I'm just not very coordinated, I'm afraid. Lol.

Ice Skating. What does it mean? Why do we want to teach our children to ice skate? It is the closest thing to freedom a kid can experience!
