This is my daughter, Eve Facebook status update which I have reposted here with her permission…
So we have rigged a 20m long tightwire over my mother’s garden. It is only 1.2m off the ground but is not without it’s perils.. The first danger involves walking over the seething mass of Aussie bull ants, which, given the opportunity, would eat the very flesh from my bones. The second section is built over a bed of spiky plants, razor sharp thorns and tangly branches, all specifically designed (I am sure) to rip my ankles to shreds upon contact. Then finally, if I have made it past section one and two, we have a double whammy danger zone of overhanging branches wielding projectile fruit, coupled with the fact that if I should fall, I would land in a bed of my mother’s favourite poppies – and one never wants to invoke the poppy-wrath of ones mother!
Time to shoe-up and have some fun
