Ice Lolly Skating

Want to go ice skating on a hot summer's day? Want to feel the wind in your hair as you glide gracefully through the park on a blistering July afternoon?

Well, that's exactly want Rosalind Ingot wanted to do. Rosalind is a fanatical ice skater, and quite an accomplished one too, but she really doesn't care for the cold. But now she doesn't have to wait for the world to freeze over before she can go out and enjoy herself - she just straps two ice lollies to her feet and off she goes.

A cloud of angry wasps

"I don't know why it's never caught on before," she says. "With a pair of Strawberry Mivvis or Walls Soleros stuck to my shoes I cut quite a figure as I slide through the neighbourhood, followed by groups of cheering children and a cloud of angry wasps. To my mind, it's simply the only way to travel."

However, there are doubts over whether Rosalind is really the pioneer that she purports to be, after her brother-in-law claimed that she stole the idea from him whilst they were out tobogganing together on a giant Cornish pasty.
