Valentine's day revisited

This is my V day present:

16. 02. 2011 b

The biggest helium balloon the store had! And yes I have a huge obsession with helium balloons. I blame this entirely on a traumatic experience from my childhood when a playground bully snatched my balloon and let it loose out of sheer spite. I guess I never got over it ;-)

But seriously helium balloons make me smile. And this is just the perfect present and Mr. C's fail safe gift for me. And I don't mean that in a bad way.
As I've said already I'm not really a fan of Valentine's day mostly because of the pressure to buy wildly expensive things.
And since flowers aren't really an option, because Rufus eats them (I kid you not!) this is just perfect and it will last longer than a bouquet of flowers.


  1. Mylar balloons are ok, but not the other kind -- I had one explode in my face as a kid as I was blowing it up. Traumatic!

  2. I guess there is all sorts of trauma realet to these ballons then, darn!
    Well I still love them and I am very careful with them, I always let the helium out gently and slowly before I toss them in the recycle bin.

  3. (PS -- you didn't have email hooked up to your profile so posting here -- that's a brilliant idea to show my tools -- I'll try to do that next time!)
