I was kindly invited to the launch of the Winter Rollerland by the City of Perth. All opinions, childhood memories and dodgy skating moves are my own. My tornadoes are now asking for roller skates for Christmas…
It took a visit to the city last week with my tornadoes to realise that I’ve been taking my city for granted.
Perth is a relatively small city but to my kids, it’s huge. Seeing the excitement of visiting the “big city” through their eyes was magical. It took me back to my own childhood city visits. Catching the bus with my older sister to see a movie. Visiting my Dad at his work “city tower” and doing cartwheels down the office hallways. Feeling so grown up when I was finally allowed to travel into the city on my own with friends to go shopping.
These days I’m in and out of the city to work each week but never stop and enjoy what it has to offer. It’s time I learnt to love my city again!
Winter school holidays may not seem like the best time to get out and about but these school holidays I plan to change that. I’m going to embrace the elements and see the city through the eyes of my tornadoes.
