#atozchallenge: H is for Home delivery…


Today’s A-Z post takes the form of an update on the one I posted on Monday, about Tracy the balloon sculptor.

That post generated a lot of interest and lots of praise for Tracy’s artistic skills; so much so that it prompted an interactive logistical experiment between Diary of an Internet Nobody, my friend Tracy and Bee, over at Just Fooling Around With Bee.

Bee was very taken with the Minion which appeared in the balloon modelling post (I think she is mildly obsessed with the little yellow critters, truth be told) and I joked that Tracy should set up a mail order service, since her work had attracted so much interest from you, my discerning readers.

To my surprise, Tracy seemed to have already looked into what amounts to mailing someone a box of air, as a friend had previously asked if she could send them one of her creations. She had not yet had a chance to perfect a technique for doing so, but Tracy suggested that she try it out by sending Bee her very own bespoke balloon Minion, as a test to see whether the model would retain its integrity in transit, opening up possibilities for her business to go national.

Bee sent me her address, 350 miles away in Norfolk, and Tracy posted off her inflatable yellow friend on Wednesday.

So, yesterday (Friday) I received a delighted e-mail from Bee, complete with with photographic evidence that Tracy’s handiwork had indeed arrived in mint condition…

Oooh, a parcel, exciting!

Who’s this, staring out at me?

Yay! My very own Minion!

How’s that for customer service?

As if that wasn’t enough, Tracy had Audrey round the other day while she and Tracy’s kids are all on school holidays and she kindly turned Audrey into a pink tiger for the day.
That’s not a sentence you get to use very often.

Just Jot It January: Day twenty three…


Just a quick one, to fulfill my JJIJ obligations before I start work on today’s proper writing.

I’ve been doing an art project with Audrey this afternoon, constructing the cardboard models that were part of a Minion annual she got for Christmas, so I thought I’d feature them in another little gif.

Happy Saturday everyone.
