Zipslide!

It's done.

And it was the scariest thing EVER!!! I remember saying that I loved it last year, which I did. This year was different as it was a LOT higher, and somehow a lot more scarier on the edge of a building compared to the wrong side of a bridge. To stop any of us spontaneously falling over the edge, we were attached to a line via the harness whilst we waited. Pretty sure I was shaking the ENTIRE TIME!!!

If you're cool and have me on facebook, the album of the photos (plus the ones from last year) are here

And I've put them on Flickr too

If you think I look scared in those photos, thats cos I really, REALLY was! I'm so scared of heights. I'm pretty sure that I kept my eyes closed for the majority of the actual zipslide, and the brake was particularly painful when it smashed into my sternum, but I did survive and I'm still collecting fundraising money, so it's all good and worth it!

Here's the video :D
