Picture of the Day: Brave Girl, Arundel Castle [2008]

Balls of steel

There are many things I won’t do like stick my fingers in the electric socket, swim with radioactive sharks, walk down Granby Street naked or jump off a bridge with nothing but knicker elastic around my ankle. Indeed, there are many foolish things I have done that I won’t ever do again like fall off a waterfall in Wales , ignore a chest pain or abseil down a concrete wall in Port Erin at the age of 10.

Of course, I will look on with admiration as other braver folks than I do things that I wouldn’t. And this is what I did on this day in 2008 when Mrs Gnomepants V2.0 abseiled down Arundel Castle for shits and giggles.

If you get a magnifying glass you can probably make her out on the tower there. 

Weekend

Didn’t I have a lovely time the day I went to Brighton? Ho yes! It was lovely to see zoefruitcake who whisked me off to all sorts of amazing places. On Saturday I watched her abseil down the Baker tower of Arundel Castle. All 180 ft of the fucker. She’s a braver girl than me.
Got to have a look round the farmers market in Arundel and had a look round Chichester too. All that walking wore me out. Even so I also got to look round Selsey Bill, which was very nice and picturesque. Then a whistle stop tour of Bosham before lunch at a haunted inn called the Royal Oak in Langstone.

An exhausting weekend but fun none the less. In fact I was a bit sad at going home this morning because I’d had such a fantastic weekend but my sadness was soon washed away when I realised I’d booked a FIRST CLASS ticket back 😀 Free tea! Free Newspaper, bags of leg space and comfort all the way home! 😀

Bonus.

Here lies some video footage and some pictures
