Luckily, it was Friday evening so the builders had knocked off for the weekend! After ...

My experience was slightly dampened when, wearing no shoes, I was convinced that my feet were sliding through the attachments as I dangled, waiting for someone to rescue me. It was unnerving to say the least, but I was reminded of the back up clip attached to my waist which would have prevented a fall.
