Hello people - I'm back from my hols! I have a few holiday related posts to write which will include a few holiday snaps as well as some holiday nails, FOTDs and outfits, but for now, here are some pictures of me and the bf launching our first sky lantern a couple of nights before we went away.
I'd had two sky lanterns for a while, it must be at least 18 months since I bought them, but I'd never used them. When I got them they were a new thing so they seemed exciting to try, but being lazy as ever they just gathered a bit of dust.
I saw lots of sky lanterns up in the air last bonfire night but I hadn't seen one being set off up close, so I was surprised at just how big they are!
Such a pretty glow =)
The bf is 6"2 so you can see how big the lantern is next to him
Our garden lights make it look like it's taking off from a runway!
It takes a while to heat up enough to float
And lift off!
We had a good few minutes of watching the lantern drift and saw up higher in the sky before it disappeared. Plus one hairy moment when we were worried it might set fire to a tree! We thought it was going up in a clear area but the wind had some other ideas.
We also both made a wish on the lantern before it disappeared - is that normal or are we big losers?!
I think I'm going to save the second one for bonfire night.
