Snogs and Skating

Westfield Ice Rink1

To mark the last day of her first winter half-term as a reception year student, I took Lil’ L ice skating at Westfield today. I have been taking her to various rinks all around town for the past two years, and the big advantage of Westfield is that it’s indoors. No soggy bottoms when your bum hits the ice. Merry Berry would be pleased.

They also have plenty of penguins and seals for rent – which means the amount of time I spent bent over, schlepping a 20-kilo kid over the slippery surface, has been limited.

We went for a couple of snogs afterwards to put a cherry on our mini girlie getaway. Lil’ L had chocolate with smarties and marshmallows, and I opted for the original version with agave syrup. I like my snogs plain like that.


  1. She is SO beautiful….and looking just a little older too! Can’t believe she is now in Reception, hope that is going well 🙂

    Happy New Year to you….will 2014 see a book signing for you, am hoping so LOL!! Xx

  2. Looks like a fun day out. I can’t wait to try out ice skating with my oldest for the first time next year, when I have someone to hold the baby

  3. Oh what a beautiful, beautiful girl she is now. I’ll drop you an email in a couple of days and we can get that lunch sorted. Tuesdays are good for me too 🙂 xx

  4. What a gorgeous girly day for two gorgeous girlies! I used to practically live in SW Westfield, brought back lovely memories reading this. Looks like fun x
