Love the snow and I love ice skating. I have all these visions of getting on to the ice and being able to do something just the remotest bit funky, but alas, I just get by gliding around the rink. It's lots of fun, but not something I excel at.
Yes, when young back home in Scotland. I was an average skater, but my boyfriend (who became my husband) was a good skater and was into speed skating. It is quite an exhilarating thing to do, especially if you get a bit of speed up.
