Helium balloon…

What to do with this? It’s gradually deflating, the balloon gets more crinkled every day. I cut the ribbon off and it drifted back upwards again.in

The balloon is about a month old, it was part of my birthday celebrations. My first thought was to burst it, but I’ve watched its behaviour as its gradually deflated. This morning it was floating just above the floor. The ribbon, which must have weighed only a gram or two, was enough to weigh it down.

Now? It’s floated upstairs, it’s in the room I use for making art. When it’s fully deflated I shall use it for collage rather than throwing it away to go to landfill… It will be recycled.
