Even superheroes have to practise..



Did I mentioned that Aimee will be insanely bravely abseiling down one of Perth's tallest buildings early on Thursday morning this week.. all in the name of charity! The Abseil for PMH, now in it's thirteenth year is a major fundraiser for Princess Margaret Hospital for Children (PMH). Today the participants had a practice run at Statham's Quarry albeit only a, yikes, 20/30mt climb.. on the day it will be a 160mt climb down the QV.1 building, double yikes! The doctors and nurses at PMH looked after my great niece so well last year that Aimee was happy to help.. if you would like to see how Aimee's fundraising is going and perhaps make a donation :) check her link here.. Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. I haven't forgotten the 1st of May CDP theme.. smelly post coming up tomorrow :)

  3. While I extend my best wishes to Aimee, I can't help but ask: WHY are you doing this? Don't you know high places are scary!!!!!

    (P.S. I got up on a step stool today to change a light bulb but had to step down. Just too high! :))

  4. Abseilen is a German word, Grace :-)
    And nothing I would ever do in my life, good job Aimee is doing, thumbs up big!
    Funny to find those German words here and there in other languages.

  13. Good on her, but no thank you. Although I would love to try abseiling per se, the height thing would get to me.

  14. Wow...well done all round, supporting hospital is a really good cause, let's hope it raises lots of money...

  21. Bravo, Aimee! Very cool. I have a friend who did something similar. Great idea for a fundraiser.

  22. Aimee has guts. There is no way I could have done this even in my younger days.

  23. Very brave, Aimee. There is a similar event in Hartford that I have photographed, but there is no way on earth I would volunteer to back off a skyscraper. Years ago I took an Outward Bound course and had to rappel off a cliff in Colorado. I did it, but my heart was in my throat.

  24. Yup, that is crazy but awesome and for a great cause. When is it your turn? Good luck to Aimee!

  25. Huh… I wouldn't do this.
    But your photos are fantastic.
