Shan's happy memory


I spent many fun-filled hours of my childhood skating around the block with the rest of the kids in my street. Some nights, my brother and I would skate up to the top of the street to meet my mum on her scooter on her way home from work. She would let us hold onto the back of the scooter while she zoomed around the block - weeeeeeeeee!
My family wasn't very wealthy, so I had a pair of skates that were extendable, and worn with a pair of sneakers - they lasted me years!
(Boy, how I coveted my neighbour's sleek white skating boots though!)
