    Well, I am absolutely cacking it ladies and gents...it is official!! I am doing a sponsored night in the South Bridge vaults in Edinburgh on 1 May. My friend told me to watch "I believe in ghosts: Joe Swash" and I did! He stayed overnight in there and now I am terrified :eek::eek:

    Oh and whilst I tell you all how terrified I am now (I shouldn't have watched it!! lol) I can tell you why I am stupid enough to do it :rolleyes:

    My friends are in a "Win Your Wedding" competition and have to raise lots of pennies for "Cash for Kids" in order to win. A very worthy cause and a very worthy couple. Could any of you take a minute to vote for them please? They are couple number 2 and are desperately trying to win. Their son has just made a lovely vid for them to win as well....a little cutie!! :D

    Anyway, I just wanted to vent how scared I was....I think the reality of spending the night in one of the most renoundly haunted locations in Britain is sinking in!!

    I have been reading about the South Bridge Vaults on Wikipedia:
    Edinburgh Vaults - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    They have an interesting history. But the ghosts sound like a useful commercial invention to sell tourist tickets and television programmes!

    It will only be scary if you decide to believe in the ghosts!!

    You're probably right, I think it was just seeing where it was that I was going to be made it hit home! I think it's because they are so well known for their history and squalor that it instills an uneasiness!! I'm sure it will be fine though :eek: xx

    Thanks guys. :D I've got over my panic stations now....I just don't think I'd really thought about it in real terms untilI watched that. It'll be fine. I'll take a flask and a torch and it will pass in no time at all!! :D xx

    Will you be alone or with other people on the night?

    LOL I guess either way is more scary than the other for some reason though...
