Welcome back, I hope your weekend is going well and you're finding time to get those little jobs done that you never get to during the week and also finding some time for your family and yourself.
Our granddaughters got picked up around lunchtime and I got ready to go to my friend Judy's house for our Saturday craft group. Poor Judy has been unwell the last few weeks with quite high blood pressure and a few other things so has decided for the time being to cut down on having the group every week to maybe once a fortnight. We are all doing the same thing at present, which is making a beaded Christmas Tree. You have to make beaded branches and there are lots of them. I've only made 9 so far and as they are different sizes, I am on to the third size. We bought it as a kit so we didn't all have to go out searching for the many different components we needed.
I left there a bit earlier than usual and picked up Mum from her house and then headed back here to pick up my OH so we could go out to the Hotel near us to celebrate our youngest daughter's birthday. There were 28 adults and 4 children and I enjoyed catching up with some of my friends that I hadn't seen for a while. It took the staff quite a while to serve all the meals as there was a private function going on as well as two large parties of people in the room we were in and the rest of the place was booked out too.
I made this card this morning as it is the one I gave to Rachel for her birthday, and I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time tonight so here it is:
