The Hare and the Tortoise - an unwrapping feature

    

In Triple Celebration, my third celebration hadn't yet got a bead to match - more I was pondering what bead I was going to buy to celebrate.

By this time I was also acutely conscious of just how much money I'd spent out of my bead fund, the issue being it was less "bead fund" now and more "new boiler fund" that I was spending.  So I was particularly careful with this purchase to shop around for a fab price... and that meant my first purchase from Denmark and the trollies favourite; Perlen.  When someone is after a super bargain it is often referred to as "Perlen price or below".

This was exciting enough, but equally fun was the lovely packaging...



I took out pink tissue paper, which I slowly unwrapped to find a black silky pouch... with sweets!

    

Yes, sweets! What a lovely touch.  They were mini slices of two different sticks of rock, beautiful detail.



Then there was more tissue paper, trollbead tissue paper no less, this was finally unfurled to reveal my  new bead...



The Hare and the Tortoise is my non-food treat and reward for achieving a weight loss of 2 stones (and a little pound) to hit a BMI target I'd been working towards for a year, my weight loss has been the result of changing to a healthier diet, with better portion control (I adore food) and a little bit of exercise thrown in for good measure.  This bead is a good representation of that journey as I was very determined to win the race with a slow and steady approach.

I also had in mind to finish the 3rd bracelet in this blog post using my Forget-me-not bead and I needed another weighty chunk of silver to balance the Forget-me-not bead.  The Hare and the Tortoise achieves this quite nicely, and at Perlen prices one can have the bead and the new boiler.
