Around the block we go!

Oh, these old things? These are my beautiful white and pink rollerskates. I bought them with money I received on my birthday. I have been so excited waiting for them to arrive, so took them out for a spin immediately. I hadn’t realized that they would be so much trickier than rollerblades! I’ll definitely have to invest in some knee pads – ouch!

We ventured further than just round the block today; we actually drove through the edge of Christchurch city for the first time in a few months.  It is very bizarre seeing massive buildings reduced to piles of rubble. The building below is the Christchurch Basilica. It is absolutely beautiful – and I’m not sure whether they are going to be able to save it or not. Here’s me crossing my fingers!

On a lighter note…

  2. Love the skates, I actually went to a roller disco the other week and went on skates for the first time and I found it so difficult! I agree blading seems a lot easier! Thanks for your comment!

  11. Did you ever go up to the top of the Basilica, before it was damaged? You had to climb a claustrophobic starcase, but there was the most amazing round room, where you could look down to the altar, and out onto most of the CBD. It was so lovely.

    I love the skates, especially in the last photo!
