There are worse ways...

... to spend a Saturday afternoon than sitting in a cafe overlooking an ice-rink in Red Square, sipping hot chocolate, and watching your husband take your sons for a spin on the ice...

oh how wonderful. Red Square is somewhere I have always wanted to visit.

There are indeed worse ways. Being the one taking the small children for a spin on the ice being one of them. We did that today (not in anywhere as impressive as Red Square, that looks AMAZING) and I have to say it was purgatory from start to finish. I'd much rather be sipping hot chocolate!

Wow. I'm going to stop worrying about you now! Surely that's worth the three hour trek to the supermarket and back?

We do that here sometimes (Chicago) but it's so bloody cold it hurts your face.

Sounds heavenly. We still haven't braved any of the New York ice rinks with the boys - except for watching. Somehow the thought of Littleboy 1 hurtling across the ice like a maniac while his brother throws a tantrum on skates is rather offputting.....

Wow and the sun is shining too:)Chris

There are worse ways, and it does look stunning. Hope it's all going well for you there.

What a incredible photo, makes me feel like I'm there sipping hot chocolate with you. This is the first time I've ever left a comment, but I wanted to let you know how looking forward to reading about your experiences in Moscow.

What a wonderful place to people watch with a hot chocolate, certainly beats my Caffe Nero on the High Street!

Did you have a spin yourself?

Sitting watching with a nice drink is my preferred position too, as ice-skating, along with most other sporting activities, was never my forte.

Photo is gorgeous.

How lovely is that?! You know you're beginning to make me want to visit Russia... I have two friends who go regularly to visit their in-laws and they are both in love with the place but it's never really appealed before now.

PS - do you know the kids website http://www.boowakwala.com/kids/boowakwala-home.html?

Has hundreds of games and songs etc, Charlie is addicted and might help relieve the no-DVD boredom for son #2...

Looks amazing. Definitely worth the nightmare food shopping for that view
