Iman (A Gift for the New Graduate) came in for her Empress Crown and Rashid (The Undergraduate) was next for Part 2 of his makeover.

Whilst I fitted her crown and did the minor adjustments, Rashid arrived, so I asked permission to invite Rashid in to the clinical area to introduce them and so we could all chat whilst I finished up. She said it was fine so I invited Rashid in, made the necessary introductions and continued …

It was just great! The three of us had a ball talking about Holga photography, relationships and practically everything under the sun. It is incredible how friendships are forged just about anywhere and anytime ….

I love my job.
