We are off to the Trix Children’s and Family entertainers magic convention tomorrow, we have the balloon stand every other year and this year I’m just going as a delegate and having a nice couple of days meeting up with everyone. Will make a change but also will be taking my balloons with me to do a little twisting with others. There are still a few tickets left if anyone would like to come along, Tuesday is the main day but it does start around 7pm tomorrow night. Trix Tickets.
Had a couple of shows this week, one local which was fun although a little noisy as they decided to give the children blowers and hooters. It was OK as I was just making balloons for the hour but with the bouncy castle, the hooters and the disco music it did make it a little hard to hear what the children were asking for at times. Then yesterday we were in London at Holland Park which is a very posh area of London, another nice party with so many other activities going on that it was a nice stress free couple of hours.
I have been updating some of my BalloonTube tutorials with the Panda being upsized with a 646 for the body compared with it
being made from 260’s in the original tutorial. There are 100 tutorials to view if you’d like to take a look,

We have sold my lovely Fiat Doblo, someone is coming down form Newcastle for it in a couple of weeks, the car I was buying fell through as it needed a new passenger air bag and the main dealer where I was buying it from declined to do the work and fit a new one so we are back to square one and looking. I was rather tempted with a VW Touran import car from Japan, some say buy they will be OK and others say don’t buy and keep well away. I have no clue but I’m tempted as they are pretty good value for money and the cars do look very nice and well looked after and kept. Watch this space to see what I get.
Anyway that’s me for this week, off to find the random balloon picture of the week. I went with the up-sized Panda design.
