“Life is an awful, ugly place to not have a best friend.” ― Sarah Dessen, Someone Like You
Sunday brought my best friend up from the coast for a day out in town. We decided to go ice skating at Somerset House, where I go every year, but she and I have never been together.
Armed with extra socks (although we wondered whether this was an old wives tale as we couldn't find a benefit), chunky scarves and a pancake brunch under our belts we headed over at lunchtime, jostled with all the kids and put our skates on.
It's such a lovely, gorgeous festive thing to do, it was dry and bright and they played us some good tunes to skate around to - and don't forget - it counts as cardio!
We were doing quite well until right at the end when we nearly stacked it, but we managed to right ourselves before we smashed to the floor, so egos and bottoms remained unbruised!
