(In-motion photo, I think I was going into an axel. It's one of those coming-of-age jumps which some people get instantly and others, like me, don't get after years. I used to do it so easily but alas, it's gone walkabouts. It is frustrating but when I get there it will feel as if I've climbed Mt. Everest!)
It was all very routine. Get up at 4.45, ice at 6.15, then off-ice, then ice, then ballet, then ice again...At lunch we went to the local fitness centre/gym called Esporta. We ate there, then had two workout sessions. It was lots in one day but we had plenty of rest in between; we ate loads because we would just burn it off in the next session. It felt so good to be a pig! There was also this amazing comfy sofa where I crashed out after lunch. Some fitness sessions were also quite good - I especially liked the treadmills and learning some nice breakdance moves from Ryan. It turned out he got to the final of Britain's Got Talent last year with his group, the Kombat Breakers! He was quite a cool bean, I must say.
On Friday I pretty much crashed out because I hadn't had enough sleep the whole week and it pretty much built up on me; I slept until about 11 the next morning (super late for me)!
On Tuesday we went into town to see what Coventry had on offer. There's pretty much everything that's in MK, apart from the most fabby: a three-storey Primark! I haven't been in one in ages so all classiness was forgotten as I went 'aaaaaaaahhhh, Primark' and glided in. It also meant a chance to see the new autumn collection in person. Which was quite a disappointment - the brown checked dress with the tulip skirt from this post looks really weird, the skirt just hangs down limply with no sign of the bubble shape in the photo. I didn't see the blue tartan one and the gingham shirtdresses were all a cheap synthetic material, not very attractive. I hate it when I'm pressed for time in shops because I like to look at everything properly, and this time I had to run around like a maniac trying to find bargains. In the end I decided to be nice and bought my sister a top and a new schoolbag, and rather cute gingham hairbows and a brown crossbody bag for myself. I have been looking for one of those forever, it was roomy and looks a bit like something I saw at London Fashion Week, but I can't remember which collection. So it scored triple points!
So I hope all of this excuses me from not blogging lately. Now, back to normal.
