Once a week I visit my friend, Louise at her home, to have my nails done. Three of us expat ladies have our nails done here. Louise does this for us out of the kindness of her heart. She doesn't charge; she brought in her own little UV oven; but at least she allowed us to each pay for our respective little pots of setting gel.
Mostly it's only me and her on "my" day. But this week Louise is going out to SA on a month's break. So she had to fit all three of us into one afternoon.
I arrived first and I asked Wessie, the only expat child on camp, to take a few photos of us as we're all being treated by his mum.

A few minutes into my appointment and Tilla arrived. She was booked for a pedicure.
While my nails were being baked, Louise swung around in her chair and started on Tilla's toes!
A few minutes later Marita walked in for her appointment. She was having her nails gelled just as I was. Wessie had gone into the garden to play so I took the photo of Marita, Tilla and Louise.
Tilla and I were done; Marita had her first hand in the UV oven
Apart from keeping my nails and toes well-groomed - even here in Africa - the mere get-together at our local "beauty salon" makes for a wonderful afternoon of a bunch of women chatting, laughing and enjoying each others' company.

I hope all's going well in your part of the world today!
