Week 9 26/10/13

This is half term for Mr Pickles , so a relaxing week, well I say relaxing in terms of brain power.  For the week I booked a learn to skate course at Planet Ice in Cardiff.  So every day we have made the 45 min journey down to the ice rink for 9.30am where the boys have had a 30 minute lesson, followed by free time to skate and a burger and chips meal, while I have had the joy of sitting in the cold for 2 1/2 hours!

The boys have done really well, Mr Pickles started in level 2 and passed that level and Roadrunner in Level 3 which he also passed, it was a complete surprise that they were not in level 1.

The boys have also bought themselves some hockey skates which on the first go found out that it is not the same as skating on ice Dance skates, though roadrunner soon picked it up.

We also managed to fit in a quick walk around St Fagans, a place that I love, a trip to Cardiff swimming pool and one day my parents came down to the bay to meet us for lunch, during the week.
