Beaded bauble

From this.......

to this.It's quite effective isn't it.I was just playing about but am really pleased with the effect.Is this the time to get back into beading.I must say I don't feel like doing anything at the moment.I have a rotten cold and a throat that feels like sandpaper!

Two birthday parties in one weekend.

Last night we went to our friend Judy's party.She was 70 but looks 50!We have known Judy for 45 years but don't see her very often as we have moved away from Bolton where she lives.Our two families used to do a lot together so it was great to catch up with them and their children.I gave Judy the turquoise scarf but she didn't open any presents last night.
Today was Ruby's birthday party.It is actually her birthday tomorrow but they have pretended it was today.She is 4 today.She had a play barn party with her little friends at lunchtime and then we went across for a party tea at their house.She had asked me to make a trifle which I duly did.We always have to have dancing,pass the parcel,musical statues,a winking game and anything that Emily and Ruby came up with.We laughed so much.These two girls are brilliant and a real credit to Sarah and Mike.It is a pleasure to be with them and they give us so much joy.We are really lucky.
We didn't go to bed until 1.30a.m so I think it might be an early night tonight!!
