Iceskating At Beamish

Hello lovelies!
A few weeks ago, by some miracle it turned out that the girls and I all had the same day off of work which is an extremely rare occurrence! So we decided to plan it out and make a day of it and rather go for food somewhere local, we changed it up and headed to Beamish for the day. Beamish is known for it's old fashioned style, showing visitors examples of old classrooms, playground entertainment, tram systems, sweet shops, etc. I remember going there back in the day at primary school so it brought up nostalgic feelings, especially the back of the sweet shop where you can watch how cinder toffee gets made, although this time they had no sugar mice! (cry) However they did have apple bonbons which are an absolute fave of mine so all was not lost ;) One of the main reasons why Beamish was so appealing was at the moment they have an ice rink up until the 1st March, so we had decided to go iceskating, which I absolutely LOVE!


It personally reminds me of a mixture of Rollerblading (which I also adored as a kid), Skiing and Ballet, which are hobbies I took up in my youth. The thought of being able to leap into the air and do a a graceful spin and end it with a perfect landing would feel amazing to me. Not only that, but I find iceskating such a beautiful sport, the technicality of the footwork and the gracefulness of the spins and leaps just astounds me! I always look forward to the likes of Dancing On Ice to watch it. If there was a place near where I live I'd go there every week without fail! Someone please make an ice rink next to my house! ;)

 I always find iceskating something different to do whether you go with your friends or your partner or your family. It's always a different experience which I like. I enjoy trying new things rather than sticking to the same mundane, repetitive activities you can sometimes fall into. This time of year I find is the worst for that when it's too cold and the thought of leaving my bed is a battle in itself or trying to save the funds after the Christmas splurge, it can always seem like a drag so doing things like going out and iceskating is always appealing to me and going with friends is always a good laugh in my opinion. I hope to go iceskating so much more this year :)
Thanks for reading! :)

  11. It's great that you were all able to hang out and have fun together. It does look like everyone is having a blast. I have never been ice-skating before, but I use to rollerblade a lot as a kid and have been rollerskating before.

  16. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll
    just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything.

    Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog
    writers? I'd really appreciate it.

  18. Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a
    little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Appreciate it!

    entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful
    job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!
