Get your skates on!

Those of you who follow me on twitter will have heard me going on about skating and rainbow laces : ) Well I am truly hooked on my new hobby.
I used to skate quite a bit when I was *younger* enjoying a few hours at Rollerworld in Derby on my blades or making the most of the supermarket car park when it had shut. So when someone mentioned a few girls were getting together on a sunday afternoon at the leisure centre to have a skate I jumped at the chance and dug out my old inline skates.
The first session I was seriously rusty and so were my skates, the next week the skates had a bit of tlc and I was whizzing around like the old days : )
Now the aim of the sessions are to get good enough to set up a roller derby team...........well I had never heard of it, so I went away and watched a few clips and read a few articles. It looked great fun, women of all shapes and sizes and wow what great outfits too....but whew DANGER and it could only be done on quads not blades.
So here are my first pair of quads...well since I was about 7 anyway......lets see how I get on??
