How do I get a pedi?

Postby tipsofmytoes » Wed Jun 24, 2020 2:16 pm

Sorry to be so superficial but I was wondering if anyone knows if one can get a pedi?

I know nail bars are not going to be open on 4th July but are beauty salons and if so are they allowed to do pedi's?

My feet look very wanting!

I would love to be able to say that the Lemon Tree is opening on the 4th and we could have pampered your toes for you, but sadly, all salons, nail bars, spas and gyms have been told to remain closed.   So that includes mobile and home visits too as we cannot social distance enough and would normally be in close contact with multiple people.  It won't be long though and in the meantime give your toes a little treat.  Just clip your nails short, give them a gently file to make then look neat and tidy, and massage some oil or cream into the cuticles.  Even olive oil will do if you have nothing suitable!   Keep the heels buffed well especially whilst we are all walking around barefoot in this lovely weather and enjoy.   Imagine how lovely they will feel when you do get them done!   Hope that helps?

A friend told me that all during the lockdown in new York  there were/are secret underground  restaurants where you could eat as normal if you knew the right people! This was like the speakeasy of the 1930’s.
I wonder if they exist in London maybe even in (Shock horror) Battersea!.....
The reason I write this is for people that can’t get a Pedi or hair done…. I wonder if these places exist in the Pedi industry with people going around and secretly showing their feet to friends at secret meetings…. Taken to place by friend blindfold  in closed van late at night then home by same method…
-----------------------
Here is a true story I wrote some time ago that I am sure some of your readers would like about the subject….

-----------------------------------------------------
When I am in MacDonald’s in a lower or basement area and see a new looking young employee coming out of the crew room door  I ask them did you win in the casino. They say they do not understand and I explain about the door they just came through that leads to the secret underground casino below the restaurant and that their secret is safe with me that the restaurant is just a front. Depending which country they come from and how good they speak English to the reaction. Some times I have to explain the joke managers always get it first time! This actually happened in the 80’s when I was on 24 hour call for emergency electrical repairs ( yellow pages or other directory) in London UK. I got a paging call (Like text message now, one way to me) while with my brother late on a Friday or Saturday night (no mobile/cell phones in general use as very expensive) I called number back and they said it was a Chinese restaurant all the power had gone off and needed back on very urgent would pay double call out fee!  I was just going to the cinema with my brother but said we would be there ASAP my brother said cant turn down that sort of money. When we got to location was in the suburbs very quite no one about everything dark in street. There was a man in the doorway of restaurant that said to come with him I said where are your electric meters, we went with torches through a heavy padded door into a short passage like an airlock. Closed door behind us and opened another door where we could hear muffled voices down a staircase and to a room which all electrical equipment in it. The main electricity  power fuse had burned out I said it took a lot of power to do that for a small restaurant and that I am not supposed to touch it but call  company. The man said did I have parts to repair it and I said yes and as money talks replaced all burned out parts, with slightly stronger of correct type to prevent same problem. When the power came back on we left switch room into a large underground room like los Vegas casino! At least 50 plus Chinese guys roulette wheels card tables gaming machines the lot. This with air con is where all the power was going. We were paid very well and told to tell no one about place location  which we never did as term mafia and hit came to mind…. Not a sound when outside in street. Never heard from them again and no record of call kept put down as wrong  number. So these places do exist!
