After the tanning session, I ventured into the world of fake nails. My nails are always short and stubby, which makes my fingers look horrible, so I had some acrylics put on. I was rather pleased with the result and three weeks later, they are still going strong.
The nail technician was a bit of an artist, so she painted on some lovely flowers and then added some diamantes. Who doesn't love a bit of bling. The picture below makes my hands look really old, but I think it was the fake tan enhancing it. Fake tan does nothing for your wrinkles girls!
The best bit about going on holiday for me, (once the Diazapan has calmed my fears of flying), is buying my reading material for holiday. I just love visiting the duty free book shop once we have checked in.
I had one book with me when I arrived, as I had previously bought Linger to take away with me. I thought it was a fitting choice as I read Shiver at the same hotel last year.
As you can see a bit of a mixed choice for the rest of the books. Barbara Erskine used to be my favourite authors back in the Nineties when I was still single, but somewhere over the years, my connection with her books disappeared, so after hearing lots of good comments about her new book, I was determined to pick it up at the airport. I have to say it really is very good and I can't wait to finish it. The other three books I picked sat in my holiday apartment, in a darkened corner, collecting dust for the whole two weeks. I have no idea how that happened, but my holiday was so active I found I couldn't settle to read. Even lounging around the pool, turned into games with the kids in the water. Now the kids are back at school, I have a whole lot of reading to catch up on.
Another little snippet - please send get well wishes to my beautiful dog Jake. He had to have an operation yesterday as his nether regions had swollen whilst we were away. The vet thought it might be trauma, or there is the possibility of testicular cancer. It was a very stressful day in our house yesterday as they kept him waiting until late afternoon. He eventually came home around 4pm. He was woozy and feeling very sorry for himself. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the results of his tests come back OK. Love you Jakey.
