    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    I really enjoy Eureka (aka 'A Town Called Eureka' in the UK), but my husband isn't allowed to watch it because he would end up with steam coming out of his ears at all the faux science. :lol:

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    Yes, I skate twice a week, and most of that time is in lessons. That works for me. It's also safer as there's double the people looking out for others! I agree that progress is still needed. I've been learning harder turns recently, which has been great, but they're all done holding onto the...

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    I long ago embraced my badness at skating. I enjoy it (the skating, not the badness) and so long as I'm not a danger to myself or anyone else, that's enough for me.

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    I agree about Picard being OOC (but there's a worse example in a later episode). There's a hand-wavy explanation in one episode (can't remember how far in, so won't spoil). Once I decided to enjoy it as science fiction rather than as Star Trek I was better with the whole thing.

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu/BritBox Binge Watching: ******** Edition

    I finally watched Star Trek: Picard. I was waiting until I had the time to binge all the episodes at once so I could fit them into Amazon Prime's 30 day free trial* (yes, I am that person). I enjoyed it, but it wasn't Star Trek. It had nicked bits from Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Blake's 7...

    Australian skating news

    I am the opposite way around. I haven't visited my parents, who are in Hobart, in 18 months, but I would have to quarantine in Tassie before I could even see them. It's just not practical, but I wouldn't want to do it without quarantine as they are in their eighties and it would be too much of a...

    Surprising skills you lost over quarantine

    I forgot Swing Dance. It's not even like it has a lot of steps. I still have to go off and review it before the next attempt.

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    There is a shower at our rink, but I'm not sure how it is used as the door to it is normally locked, and now there is a sign on the door saying it is not in use. But I don't skate fast enough to raise a sweat so I just change and go straight to work (or straight home in the current...

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    This is me as well. I'm objectively terrible at skating (no, I really am) but it's fun and while I'm skating I don't think about anything else, which is something I really need, even if it's only twice a week.

    Things I’m sick of tbh.....

    We are technically in different rooms, but because the layout of the house is fairly open plan there aren't doors between us. Short of working in the bedroom, where there's no space to set up monitors, we have the best option. As for lunch, even if we're making it separately it's still...

    Things I’m sick of tbh.....

    I would be much happier with the working from home thing if my husband wasn't WFH as well. I need some time to myself, even if it's just in the car driving to and from work. With both of us at home I also have to co-ordinate two additional meals, often make them as well, tackle competing...

    Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya passed away

    There will be a celebration of Katya's life in the park outside Canterbury Ice Rink on Sunday morning. The details are on the rink's Facebook page if anyone wants them.

    Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya passed away

    I suspect there was actually a combinaton of injuries and illness. Epilepsy is often successfully controlled through medication (depends on type, response to drugs etc); it shouldn't have been a retirement cause in and of itself.

    Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya passed away

    This is terrible news. Completely shocked. Having seen she and Harley skate in person a number of times, including at my home rink, it just seems unbelievable right now.
