Yesterday was a brilliant day. I didn’t write about it sooner because I was so exhausted. Myself and a friend went ice skating in the town centre although there was no real ice just smooth plastic, close enough though considering it was my first time putting on skates.
It wasn’t just my first time skating either I had overheard a conversation between parents and one of their children, they were angry because their daughter wouldn’t skate even though they had already paid for her to do so but she was scared, crying and everything.
I’d started talking to the child, while her parents were there obviously, reassuring and encouraging her eventually she did go on the “ice” but unfortunately her parents were now preoccupied with her younger siblings.
I felt bad for her, she was facing her fear and her parents weren’t even paying attention so it was me who congratulated her. It’s sad when a child has to rely on encouragement and support from a stranger, being the oldest sibling is a tough gig but I made her smile and boosted her confidence which felt awesome.
After that my friend and I went on the carousel it had been so long since I’ve been on one that I couldn’t even remember what it was like. It was fun yesterday though and I felt like I got back the enjoyment of childhood I had forgotten.
When my mum came to pick me up we had to go to Toys ‘R’ Us to do some Christmas shopping; fair to say I had some fun while I was there XD
Also I’ve had a couple of drinks with my guy friends this evening so I’m a teensy weensy bit tipsy…
