Barney’s 7th birthday skating party

A manic, but fun, morning at Alexandra Palace Ice Rink was had by all, even the adults whose ice skating days were long past. Barney sped around like the regular rinker that he is, although some of his other friends struggled to gain their balance, looking more like ducklings on ice than budding Robin Cousins.

The Ally Pally package came complete with a Birthday Lunch in the far end of the cafe – the first time I’ve had chocolate spread sarnies for years. It was all a bit chaotic, but I guess that’s the sign of a very good time when you’re 6/7!

Back home, Barney unwrapped a pile of lovely pressies, and tried out Operation and the microscope. And we all had a spot more lunch…..
