Big Thanks to My Mum

I wanted to sign up for the Level Two City and Guilds course, because I really need the design training more than the beading training. The second level makes the student do more of their own jewellery designing and takes every aspect that step further than Level One has so far. However, the course is four times as long and will cost quite alot of money. I told my mum this and said that I had decided not to ask Mark (my husband) for the money as I no longer work and I don't contribute financially to the household.

Yesterday, my mum offered me a quarter of the course cost with no strings attached. She said that she really wanted me to do the course as she thinks I would be good. This gave me the courage to ask Mark for the balance of the money. He agreed that I could have it as my 40th present (I will be 40 next October - before the course finishes). So, I booked up today and am really excited to be doing it!

Big thanks to my mum - without her really generous offer, I would not have mentioned the course to Mark and would have missed out. I love beading!!!

Mum's really are the best thing in the world aren't they? I don't know what I would do without mine!

Hope you enjoy the course - I'm looking forward to seeing more of your fabulous stuff.
