Finally, finally went rollerblading - after a gap of two years. I wobbled like a child, and could really have done with a zimmerframe.
Fell flat on my arse in the middle of the road - agonising and undignified. I quickly gathered a group of pensioners and a policeman around me as i crawled to the pavement. But, I made myself get up and carry on round Regents Park.
I was joined by a nine year old, who tried to give me tips on technique. Mortifying! :) He stood there, hopping from one skate to the other, munching maltesers and tutting as i lurched and staggered up the hill.
