Torr na Locha progress - ice skating

This week's work at Torr na Locha seems to have gone very quick.  Damon laid the wooden floor in the living room, and put the fire place with multi fuel burning stove and hearth in place.  The wood still needs to be sealed, which he should be able to do next week.  He knocked through the rooms upstairs and was delighted to find that the partition walls that were up not only sat on the timber floor, but were hardly nailed in, so very little work will need doing to get the floor looking good again.  The rooms upstairs are being changed from a long corridor which had 2 single bedrooms from it and a double bedroom at the end, to what will be a twin bedroom, then a shower room and staircase leading up from the living room, and at the end the unchanged double bedroom.
Today I iceskated along our drive.  I've been meaning to have a go for a few days and Anja has been keen, but she's at school now.  I felt a total beginner again, and skating downhill is really scary!  I'm sure that falling over hurts more as well.

It's wonderful to be able to skate on the icy roads! Yes, downhill is scary. And it does hurt when you fall. You need to get the full protective gear that we use with our in-line skates then you will feel more at ease. Enjoy yourself.

Which of my climbing, skiing, cycling or kayaking helmets do you suggest or do I need another helmet!

It's is very pleasant reading about your daily activities. We are looking forward to the next one. About the robin pictures. They are very good. We would say that the middle one is the best.
Enjoy yourself with your diary. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!!!
