If I've done my sums right...

... then my blog is exactly one year old today. And also - quite by chance - this appears to be my 150th post.

If I'd been a bit more organised, I'd have put together a giveaway for this occasion, it being the perfect opportunity to do so. Sadly, though, I'm not. So I haven't.

Instead, you can have the promise of a belated giveaway, sometime in the not-too-distant future :o)

And for those of you who prefer instant gratification, please go here to watch a brilliant short cartoon that is suitably celebratory.

Heck, because I'm feeling generous, you can also have this very informative video showing how balloons are made... because balloons are celebratory too, right?

Wow - it's complicated, innit? I shall never look at a balloon in the same way again...

Wooohooooo Happy Bloggiversary to you and happy 150th too!!!!!

Never mind a giveaway VC - that, hitherto unseen by me, episode of The Owl and the very informative balloon manufacturing film are gifts enough!!

Here's to many more educational posts :)

WoW! 150 posts AND a year?!?!? You wordy creature.

We loved the balloon video - the general vote in our house is that our favourite bit was the balloons being rolled by the brushes. Closely followed by the ballons being worried off the forms - V.C. we thank you for your peek into the delights of youtube :-)

Congrats on your milestones! I loved the YouTube video. In the States we have "How It's Made" on the Discovery channel, but the narrator does not have nearly so delicious an accent.

Happy 1/150!! Wow, time really flies when you're having fun, doesn't it?

And thanks for the smashing balloon video. At first I thought "Hmm, can I really be bothered to sit through five minutes of balloon manufacture?", but before I knew it - I was riveted!!

It reminded me of that classic TV programme Playschool, when there was a really boring documentary type mini-film through the square/round/oblong window, and you always really hoped that Jemima or Humpty wouldn't pick that window.

.... not that the balloon video was boring - honest ....

.... and what am I saying?? Of course you don't remember Playschool - you're FAR too young!

One more thing .... animal bladders? Eeuuuwwww.


ps. Contrary to what you may be thinking, no wine has been involved in tonight's comment ;)

I can't believe I've just sat through a whole 5 minute film of how balloons are made AND and enjoyed it. I'm such a saddo.

150 posts - congrats.
