iHeartFaces – Balloons

2 Nov

I’m allergic to latex, seriously. I only found out about it 6 years ago, this allergy. I left the dentist with half my face numb, and swollen so didn’t notice at first. A few days later I was blowing up some balloons (as you do) and my lips swelled up again. “This is ick and familiar” I thought to myself. So I left it a few days then tried blowing up more balloons, yup, latex allergy.

Here’s my Mum & Dad having just left the ground in a Virgin hot air balloon. It was over 2 years from when they bought their tickets to the day they flew. It’s not known for calm, peaceful weather Scotland… and whilst balloons need some wind to move… you don’t want them moving all that much.


More balloons this week at iHeartFaces.

    Great minds think alike! 🙂 (You’ll have to peek at my entry – we had the same thought about this theme.) I’ll bet your parents had a wonderful time.

    Aw, what a great take on the theme. And a nice photo. I’d totally hate to go in a hot air balloon, it sounds terrifying to me, but I’m sure it’s wonderful to those who are not big scaredy cats.
