My littlest little lady went to an ice-skating party for one of her sweet school friends on the weekend. Ice skating isn't really a standard go-to winter sport for us here in Western Australia, so it was only the second time she'd ever had a go at it in her almost nine years. There were a few zimmer frames on offer for the unsteady to hold onto/push in front as they wobbled around the ice, so it was a whole lot hilarious watching my girl channeling her inner 95 year old as she tottered on her seemingly elasticated ankles on her way around the rink.
It was also one of the coldest days of our current winter to date, so far from being a place to escape from the conditions, it was like walking out of the fridge and into the freezer. I had half a thought to strap on some skates myself, thinking that at least a bit of motion might generate some warmth and distract me from the fact that I could no longer feel my toes. Witnessing some spectacular crashes and falls from the sidelines soon pushed that thought right out of my mind, however. I had no desire to add the cheeks of my bottom to the list of my frozen body parts, so I settled in with a warm drink and somehow managed to wrangle a good hour-long sleepy snuggle with the five month old brother of the birthday girl, which warmed me from the inside out...
