This sounds like so much fun!

If you're looking for something to do today with the family, why not head to Stratham Hill Park for a day of ice skating?

According to Stratham Parks and Recreation Facebook page, the snow has been removed from the rink and they are currently open!

I love to ice skate, but I am not very good at it. I remember when I first put on a pair of skates and a friend of mine was a hockey player, so he took my hand and guided me around the ice. It was very fun, but then I fell down and it wasn't so fun. 

I gave it another go once at Boston Common. If you've never been ice skating at Boston Common, I suggest you go. I remember it was a cold, cold night and I was not prepared to go ice skating, but I was in Boston for the night and I may have had a couple of cocktails in me at the time, so there I was - renting a pair of skates before my sober self could talk me out of it. 

I didn't have gloves that night, either. There I was, holding the rail on the side of the rink trying to propel myself 'round and 'round. It was a sight to see, I'm sure. This drunk lady trying to navigate herself on a pair of skates she had no business wearing.

I vowed that I would once again try when I felt soberer! I mean, confident! Maybe I'll head on over to Stratham Hill Park, since it's just down the road from my house! It's closer and I'll be properly dressed this time.
