I know lots of you make beaded jewellery but until I met up with my crafty friend from the past it's not something I had ever wanted to try. She showed me some "simple" pieces that she'd made on a one-day course and naturally I've had to have a go.
These are my attempts so far.
It's so pretty and I'm very excited about it. It's nice to be able to get just the right colours to go with hand-knitteds and we're very lucky to have an excellent bead shop - Spellbound Beads - locally.

There's no change in my general dizziness and more weird things seem to be going on as well - consistent with either the chronic anxiety scenario or other possibilities.
I've seen my opthalmic consultant who says the central loss of vision in my left eye wouldn't explain any of my symptoms. I've also seen my cardiologist who like the GP isn't sure what's going on. I'm going to have my blood pressure monitored for 24 hours because one possibility is that my high blood pressure is being over-treated and I'm having an MRI brain scan in January and then I'm seeing the cardiologist again.
Meanwhile I'm keeping "calmish" with herbal remedies but I'm wondering about trying some acupuncture. The trouble is to find a really good acupuncturist and not just someone who "does" acupuncture. I need a personal recommendation I think.
