Well there's nothing like getting your adrenalin going than by tipping yourself off the side of a Roman fort dressed like a hag - not the usual Sunday for me, I have to admit.
The reason for the change of routine was the Asian Business Connexions (ABC) all charity Halloween abseil at Segedunum in Wallsend. I was one of around seventy people participating and am proud to say raised over £200 for the Miscarriage Association.
Thanks to all those who supported me!
BBC Look North came along and the piece will go out tonight, hopefully not dominated too much by the Newcastle-Sunderland game.
ABC is a great initiative designed to build relationships between communities. Find out more at: www.abconnexions.org. There's so much going on, it would be a shame to miss out.
