The weird sculpture in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, is the UK’s tallest sculpture, and post the 2012 games, some bright spark decided to put a slide down it. Continue reading “#50 Slid down Britain’s tallest sculpture”

Ok, this isn’t technically a ‘new thing’ as public speaking is something that I have to do for my job, but this was the first time up on stage, taking about the charity I work for, to 250 people, including the Mayor and other important people.
Sadly for me, I didn’t realise that the talk would be up on stage, and I wore impossibly high heels (sitting shoes, not walking shoes). Luckily for me, I managed to navigate the steps without falling on my face, and deliver the talk. Unluckily for me, this is the only photo taken of my talk – not the most flattering thing ever 😦
For a slightly nerve-wracking new thing attempt – 3 out of 5 stars
Taking to the skies of NZ…
So today is the first day of the challenge. And it was a good start…up in a helicopter and over the skies of NZ, along with a suitable selfie that makes me look like I’m flying the thing. Which of course I wasn’t (although I did offer to drive).
Although I’m not a huge fan of flying, being up in a helicopter didn’t actually freak me out…or even make my stomach go over.
It had a fantastic view over the rolling hills and coast of NZ as well. How did this come about? Well, I work for a helicopter charity, and we were off to a charity event. Talk about arriving in style!
