The 3 B's - Beads, Boots and Ballet.

I have had an amazing day today, girly day out with friends! First was a trip to Crystals & Ice bead shop in Cardiff as I wanted to get some bigger beads as I am teaching 2 visually impaired ladies to bead next week. I decided to teach them a basic RAW bracelet using 6mm druks and 8mm fire-polished as the difference in size and texture should make it much easier for them, I managed to pick a few things for myself too, including gorgeous galvinised gold miyuki cubes.

Next was a spot of shopping, whilst in one department store I spotted a pair of Carvela boots that I had wanted in October but at full price they were out of my budget, but they had my size(which can be difficult to find as my feet are canal barges in disguise) for half price so I snapped them up quick!

Then there was the ballet, the first I have ever been to, the ticket's were a birthday gift from my friends. The ballet was Sleeping Beauty performed by the Russian State Ballet and it was wonderful! I especially loved the bluebirds! I shall certainly be going again. We finished up with a lovely meal and a few drinks, including a glass of champagne in a lovely hotel bar. I feel very lucky, thank you to those that shared the day with me, and the one who was too ill to come, you were missed. We'll just have to make sure we do the same again next year!
