Though I like to skate when there is a a possibility to do so, for me it is also a very scary activity as I am always afraid to fall. Lucky me for a few years ago when we went to skate indoor at the Sportiom in Den Bosch there were rollators nearby with which I could fly over the ice. What a delight!January 2006 was the last time outdoor skating was possible in our part of Holland. Outdoor skating is even more scary for me for there are no sides which you can skate to besides that there are no rollators either. So what better thing to take along but a broom so at least it will feel less scary in a way when on the ice.
Oh.... and who cares about laughing kids who when on seeing me going around the skaterink with a broom will jokingly ask if I might be sweeping the icerink. Haha!!
Even though I hate winter it would be great if the icerink would be open for a few days this year to go skating.
