I spent most of today at a spa with my sister, mother and mother-in-law. No one wore shoes and it amused so much I kept repeating in my head: "I'm being pampered by barefooted beauticians".
The place was nothing like the places I go to in London; no crisp white towels and uniforms.. definitely not upmarket - but the people were friendly and competent and I enjoyed myself. My feet have never felt so smooth and soft and the hot stone massage was delightful!
I was so relaxed that not only did I fall asleep on the beauty table, I fell asleep again as soon as I got home lol!
I'm glad I took the folks... it was nice... even got to chat to my big sis a bit - AND I discovered that she has super ticklish feet... she almost kicked the beautician off her chair during her pedicure lol... she kept collapsing into fits of giggles like a little child :) I hope I remember that forever *chuckle*
I spent a lot of time during my facial just thinking things over; relationships are so precious, so fragile... time never stlows its onward march so we should really take time out every so often (at least) to appreciate what we have, who we know, how we feel.
I am lucky to have 2 beautiful sisters who make me laugh; and I've been blessed with a groovy mother and a lovely mother-in-law. These relationships are important to me. I must cultivate them.
On another note- I miss my daughter. She would have loved to have been there with us. I shall treat her to her own pedicure and massage 'a la mummy' when I get back.
