|The detail is amazing! & yes, ARRG rules|
This was painted for me, by the very talented KillaWatts (who also skates for Auld Reekie Roller Girls). It's incredible!

I had a bit of a mad dash across town tonight after work to pick it up, then rushed off for a sneaky Monday night practice. I wanted to work on transitions as I am RUBBISH at them, so my lovely pal Stitches basically spun me around for 10 minutes, until I was confident enough doing it myself (at very slow speeds). I found it really tricky at first, but slowly I realised that if I stopped thinking about what my feet did, and instead just moved my body to the direction I wanted to travel, then my feet would go to the right place!
I'm still falling over when I try them with speed, but it's just a case of practice, practice, practice until it is drilled into my head! A really successful Monday by all accounts!
& for good measure, here's a photo of me, derbied up. Trying to do a tough derby face. & smiling politely instead. Hmm. (practice, practice, practice).
Thanks Watts, I love it!
