And it was brought to me by the lovely River .
I have chosen balloons (the big ones) because I love them to bits and because a balloon festival has just finished here. When I can I love to go and watch them being inflated and taking off, even if I am not flying. But this year I missed out - given his druthers the smaller portion sleeps until noon and the balloons are inflated at 6.30am. And this week has been cloudy every morning so I didn't have the heart to drag him out of bed for a maybe.
I was given not one but two balloon rides for a significant birthday a few years ago. They were truly lovely and I was super grateful that two sets of people dear to me thought I would love it. They were right. I think that ballooning is one of the few things which are actually as good as they look on television and/or movies. And because I suspect that I could no longer clamber into the basket they are memories to add to the cherished pile.
