When the decision was made to leave Dublin and move to the UK to work, the one thing that was certain was that it was going to be an adventure – if myself and Maria had to move away from our beloved home, then we were going to make the best of it and have fun.
One of the things we wanted to do was go ice skating and the great thing about where we are in Milton Keynes is there is a local Garden Centre, “Frosts at Woburn Sands“, just down the road from us and every year at Christmas time they have an ice skating rink which was great news for us.
We booked our tickets for the morning of New Year’s Day, which included breakfast afterwards. My first time ice skating and a few falls later, it turned out to be a lovely way to start the New Year. It was a lot of fun, as the tongue-in-cheek title of this post might imply!
Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
