And finally for tonight… (that’s three blogs in one night, what’s the chances of that happening again?! Somewhere between slim and zero).
On Sunday, October 21, yes that would be the weekend before the Hallowe’en Ghost Fest, I am, for some completely mad reasons, abseiling off the Forth Bridge. Some people would enjoy the sort of thing. But for me, the event holds nothing but sheer terror. Ah, and the chance to prove my father wrong as he doesn’t believe I can do it.
Ladders scare me. I don’t mean going UP ladders, I mean ladders. I can look at a perfectly harmless looking ladder on the floor and in a flash my brain has run a scenario of the ladder being propped up against something, me – or anybody else – going up the ladder, and me or that anybody falling off the ladder and being very hurt. The thought of 168ft off the floor on the end of the rope gives me the willies to say the least. It turns my knees to jelly thinking about it. I hope there are some very grateful animals at Edinburgh Zoo (especially the big cats, given my last blog), I hope they fully appreciate what I am putting myself through to raise funds for them… SPONSOR ME PLEASE! 🙂
Remember: keep your equipment dry, and your coffee strong.
