I've been lusting after these Nash roller skates ever since I saw them on Pretty in the City a few months ago. There are still some for sale on Ebay. They're vintage, yes indeed, made in the late 70s/early 80s.
My hand/eye/anything coordination skills are not good. I've always wanted a moped, mainly so that I could get a pink Penelope Pitstop helmet, but I know it's just not a good idea.
Here's the evidence:
- I once crashed a three wheeler motorbike into a fence and broke it.
- When I did my RYA Level 1 Sailing certificate, I crashed a boat into a wall.
I'm sure there are more examples, but there are some things in life it's best to blank out.
I wasn't good at tightrope walking either (it hurt my feet), or ballet, or trampolining, and I couldn't quite get the salsa shimmy. But apart from the risk of crashing, perhaps old-fashioned rollerskating could be my thing?
