Ah, a nice relaxing bath. Can’t read the paper in the shower… Well, you kinda can, but it gets pretty wet.

I just had my second bath of the year. That might not sound like many baths, but it’s more baths than I had in the whole of last year. Oh, don’t worry, I do bathe regularly. I normally prefer showers, but the plumber came on Thursday and commenced fixing up the shower, which involved first of all pulling it apart and redoing all the concrete, so now it looks like a big dark grey blob in the middle of the bathroom.

So for the last few days I’ve been resorting to baths, which may not be as water-efficient or as quick as a shower, but is a somewhat more sedate way of washing. And it’s a very relaxing way to get through the gigantic Saturday newspaper.
