At some points, I resorted to sliding down on my bum (despite being warned not to) using a bizarre technique of bending my good leg and using my foot like a ski. Needless to say, this didn’t work very well at all and I ended up a crumpled heap by the time I reached the bottom half an hour later. My leggings ...
