Pampering & Baby group!

We are a group of more or less 12 mums who meet a couple of times every week, once at the British Club and then either in a cafe or at somebody's place. Well yesterday one of the mums had arranged that we could have a manicure/pedicure done! What a fab idea. It's true it is not always easy to find the time for yourself when you have a baby (or more) to look after, so instead of going to a salon for having it done, well the salon came to us! That's a great thing about the Middle East - those things are possible. Wouldn't even dare to imagine what it would cost in the UK (or other western country)... but yesterday I had a pedicure and manicure done for the bargain price of 15JD, yes yes 15. For 5 hours there was 2 ladies who did all our nails while we were looking after eachothers baby.

Got to like that!!

WOW. what a treat! So happy to hear you have a group of mums to hang out with.You are right, sometimes as 'mom's we forget that we too need a little pampering! I agree,if we were too arrange something like this,even in the states, it would be impossible and even might cost a fortune.
