Yesterday, we took DS1 and 2 to their ‘camp’ (actually in a boarding school) where they will be doing their favourite activity, messing around with computers, for the next week. On the way back, we went to Bristol Balloon Fiesta. This is an annual balloon festival which has about 100 balloons all going up one after another.
Here are some waiting to go up.
Lots of them (spot the IKEA one!). There were only a few novelty shaped balloons this year.
Here’s one of them.
Is this a kiwi?
They played bagpipe music over the loudspeakers when this one went up.
All in all, a fun evening – and it is SO quiet at home! DS3 goes tomorrow and then I’m off to the Festival of Quilts on Monday so this may be the last entry for a week or so. Then there MIGHT even be some quilts on this blog – don’t faint!!
