19th July

his week has been a bit of a challenge with the websites moving over last Monday to the new server and then this week the running system being undated to the latest publication. We still have a few gremlins in the works and the back of the website is looking completely different and I’m struggling finding my way around. Even writing the blog is on a completely new layout and I’m hoping we can add the links and pictures as we have done before.

I have been busy today with Filming a balloon tutorial for Paddington Bear. The filming went OK but for some reason the 55 minute tutorial that was filmed in one go has been uploaded to my computer in two separate videos. A bit of a mystery to me so will try and sort out over the next few days and then get it added to YouTube if we can.

We have been working out in the garden this week as well adding a raised bed with new Oak sleepers and repairing the fence that had three broken fence posts. Even laid a very small path way as well. Trouble is I have very bad back ache at the moment, I expect due to me not being used to all this physical manual labour work :-)

A short blog this week, the BalloonTube revisited video last week was the one balloon Parrot.
It was posted in Oct 2016 and had views of just under 500 in that time. When I posted it onto Facebook on Monday it has been viewed over 1100 times in just six days.
There are 76 tutorials on BalloonTube at the moment if you’d like to take a look,

Off to find the random balloon picture of the week. Now what will it be?

I went with the latest Balloon Chat Challenge which was the Racoon we made,
this is a design by TwisTee.
Her full details and Facebook page etc are on the link on Balloon Chat.
