All done ;o) and I have to say, the build up during the days leading up-to the abseil was more nerve wracking than the actual event! After yet another busy day, I arrived and felt very /too laid-back.  I thought that when I got up to the top of the building the nerves would kick in ... they didn't. Surely then stepping onto the side of the 540ft skyscraper?.... Nope, not a bit of it!

The views were amazing... truely amazing... Looking out and then down the side of a skyscraper whilst perched on the side was great!

This was someone's else's video of the view at the top! 
I have to say that this was one for the books but also what I learnt is that my threshold appears to have risen even higher! Oh dear .... That leaves me with another dilemma .. what will I do next!?!?!? It's got to be higher, push the boundaries and well it has just got to make me think twice! But what?!? Suggestions on a postcard please! :o)))))

Photos to follow!

This has to be one of my top ten giggles to date.  In two sleeps time, I will be abseiling down a little skyscraper. The weather is looking good, wind is down and unless the tubes and trains all breakdown at the same time .... it seems that there is no way of stopping this from happening. I am so excited I can barely contain myself.  
Hmmm, ok, so I would be lying if I said that I wasn't nervous.. I am... but the excitement of knowing that I am going to be pushing the boundaries again outweighs the nerves 10000 fold. Day to day, life is simple, logical and straight forward and the opportunities of pushing the boundaries are seldom (although I admit to having more than some).  So when I know the opportunity is near, the excitement just goes through the roof. 
However,  as I sit here, I am already planning and thinking about the next, how I can follow in Prince Andrews abseiling steps and how I can fast track high lining and base jumping! 

But for now ... It's two more sleeps until Broadgate tower ... the fourth tallest building in London ......That should keep me occupied for this weekend ;o)
