Birthday Bash/Bang

Well my day yesterday started off with a bang, literally. After dropping children at Kinder I headed into Caro's for our monthly play day with Bevlea, Lucy and Caro, but on the way there, ran into the back of a car. Sounds bad, but not my fault. Was coming to major set of lights that were still green and turned orange as I and car in front got to them, She, after going past the white line to go round the corner suddenly changed her mind and slammed on her brakes, I slammed on mine and slid into the back of her as it was pouring with rain. She and I could have got through, and she should never have stopped like that. Only damage to my car was a loose number plate, but hers is munted in the back, she was in a small Mazda 2.. She then tells me at the site that its the third time that has happened to her and when talking on the phone last night she said its the 5th time, so hullo, who is the common denominator in those accidents.
Anyway we were both able to drive away, me on my way to Caro's, her home to organise getting hers fixed, which I will have to pay for through insurance as I ran into the back of her, sad, but never mind that's the law.

Anyway, arrived ok at destination and Bevlea, Lucy and Caro had goodies for me for birthday. I was so spoilt.

Gifts together
Birthday cake from Caro.                                          Coasters &  pencil case from Lucy,    
                    Necklace from Bevlea

Necklace by Bevlea
Left is necklace by itself. Its really lovely and I thank all three of you for a fabulous day.

We also started making a lovely bracelet cuff with metal and fabric etc.
I took along my sewing machine and we all use it to sew bits of fabric, lace etc to start the cuff. Unfortunately we couldn't get the dremel through the fabric and the metal so will finish them next time we get together. They will have bits and bobs on them, but photo shows them started.

Hope you´ve hade a great birthday though! OMG, when I began to read your story, I didn´t know that you were in a car but thought you had the crash as a pedestrian (that I mostly am when not riding my bike), so it was a relief to hear that you had your car sheltering you!

Thanks Marion, yes it was so good to have our big car round me, otherwise the situation may have been very different.
Jen, yes we had a great day and am looking forward to getting the cuffs finished next play day. Only didnt get them done this time as, a)we talk and laugh too much, b) we could get the dremel through both the metal and fabric, so Bevlea is doing the metal at home for next time.
