Back in January, it was the usual Saturday night, we all sat round the television watching the usual rubbish. Then an advert had came on for Red Nose Day, happening in March.
Now, it's been a good few years since, my husband, our two kids and myself had taken part in any fundraiser so I suggested that we set ourselves a challenge. It was going to be a big one and it certainly was.
The challenge was to get up and down Ben Nevis, biggest mountain in Britain, all 1344 meters of it, 10 mile round trip, up and down.
To be honest I didn't really think of the enormaity it. Yeah, it was a mountain and yeah, it was going to be a challenge for our son, Ruaridh who is 8, but it would be fine for us? I had done a Munro before so it would all be great but I had forgotten about my old friend called Vertigo.
Time was passing on and Easter holidays were getting closer, the sponsor money was mounting up. Every day we had been checking on the weather to see if we were able to get to the top and in all honesty we thought this was going to be a trial run, making another trip in the summer back up again to conquer it.
But we don't have to as we were so lucky with the weather.
Thank you to all involved and a M A S S I V E thank you to all of you who have sponsored him and supported him through out his 'Epic' adventure.
