Exam Results 2018

Today is GCSE RESULTS DAY 2018, where thousands of teenagers go to collect the results of the last 2 years work. Whilst some will be over joyed that they have gained the results they need to go to college or 6th form, others may not have got what they want.

Sometimes the pressure these youngsters put them selves under is not so healthy, today there will be plenty of teenagers out there who do not know where to turn from here. They will think that they have failed, have let people down and have let themselves down.

We would just like to remind these students that if you did not attain the results you needed, please do not despair. TomorrowGCSE RESULTS DAY 2018 is another day, there will be further chances, further opportunities and more importantly second, third or fourth chances.

I myself did not get the results I wanted at GCSE.  Back then some of the opportunities of today did not exist. So I left school and found work.

However today there are plenty of options open to you. Speak to you school advisers and teachers. They are there to help, and will be happy to explain further options to you. Maybe you would like another chance as you feel you could do better, maybe academia is not your strong point so something more “hands on” maybe where your strengths lie.

If you did get the results you required “Well Done You”. Hope your future is bright whatever you choose to do. If you did not then your future is just as bright, you are young , adaptable and will capitalize on your new opportunities.

Whatever your results today. Remember tomorrow can be a fresh start !!

Forever Training ? Always learning something new  !!

Cardiff Balloons Are Forever Training

Here at Cardiff Balloons we are forever training. We believe no matter what you know about a subject and no matter how experienced you are there is always something you can learn.

With that in mind we attend as many training courses and workshops within our industry as we can. Most of them only last the day but some do last a bit longer.

Our most recent course was to do with balloons, we picked up some fantastic new ideas and techniques, and of course will put them to good use in due course.

One of the designs we learned on the latest course was to make a monster out of balloons. Maybe great for Halloween but not so much for everyday use. With that in mind we changed the design slightly and came us with this.

What do you think ??Minion Balloon From Cardiff Balloons

In all fairness, we think he is pretty cool. This in one of the many reasons we think that you can never just let your business stand still.

You have to evolve, you have to learn what is new and what is in trend at the moment. Here at Cardiff Balloons we try to do just that.

So whatever your requirements in balloon decoration or gifts, please do not hesitate to contact us and speak to one of our fully and recently trained balloon professionals.

busy with balloonsCardiff balloons have been very busy with balloons over the past few weeks and that is just how we like it. The adrenaline that we feel when we have a lot of orders on is amazing as each job is just as important as the last. We take great care and attention to make sure each design we do is just how it should be.

We completed a range of weddings and birthdays and christenings over the past weekend so busy with balloonsno two jobs were the same. As well as the balloons we also provided a sweet cart hire for one of our customers at their wedding party.

Both Saturday and Sunday were busy this weekend and without a strong team the work we busy with balloonscompleted would not have been possible.

Saturday was busy with both balloon orders and customers coming into the shop to order items, with a wedding and sweet cart to complete, and birthday balloons to deliver we were on the go all day which is great. Sunday was a little different as we are not normally open so it was mainly just balloon deliveries to be completed, our first was a delivery to Sainsburys in Newport for 9am, so an early start on Sunday for us although we do not mind as long as the customer has gotten the service they busy with balloonswant.

We appreciate all the support and custom from our regular customers and from our new ones who help keep us running on a day to day basis. Without you there would be no Cardiff Balloons so we sincerely thank you and hope you keep us just as busy over the coming weeks.
