A Fun Time

Last night I went out to a steakhouse with my manager and my co-workers. Most of these co-workers I have never met in person, only thru the online zoom meetings. Its amazing the connections that can be made that way. We nibbled all night long, in between chatting and laughing. I have not laughed that hard and that much in so long. It was fun. My manager remembered my birthday last week. He gave me this Swarovski crystal piece. I have a smaller swan that is clear crystal. It was nice of him to remember my birthday, I did not expect anything and it was a nice surprise. ~Photo is mine

@RebeccasFarm Thanks so much. My favorite birthday gift was having you feel stronger enough to come back and visit. I missed you so.

I have a couple of tiny Swarovski crystal pieces that my son has given me. I'm glad you had such a good time.

I have a pretty small swan that I received from a nephew years ago before we were married. This one looks more like a knock off, the packaging was questionable and the size, weight and details are no where near similar to the swan.

@Juliaacv I have a ladybird, a plate with cake and a cake fork, and a little stand with two tiny crystal balls on it. They are all miniscule but still lovely. Beswick china is made in China now so who knows what's happening with Swarkovski crystal?

@JudyEv So many things that were fine and detailed are out sourced to China and then they lose their fine reputation. Royal Dalton is another example of that.

You manager is so kind and this crystal piece is cute. I have a Swarovski crystal duck that a friend offered to me, he offered a small fox to my husband.

I have a pretty little swan that my nephew gave me before we were married. I suspect that this is a knock off, its alot larger then my other one, the details are not the same and the packaging was not like my other one came in. But it is the thought that matters, which was very nice of him.

Isn't it wonderful when people remember your birthday? Mom would have loved that piece, to me it looks like a bear.

It was unexpected that he remembered my birthday since it was back on the 20th. I think that its a little bear also.
