The Joy of Baths

· mumblings ·

In the latest of a series of on-going plumbing problems, our shower has broken, so we're having to take baths instead. Bathing rather than showering is annoying because it takes so much longer and wastes a lot of water, but it is really quite excellent when you're very tired from your first day back at work after six weeks of sick leave, and even better when I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is on the radio at the same time.

We have a shower (i.e. splash-proof) radio, but it's difficult to hear when the water's running. So it's a real pleasure to lie back in lovely warm water, while it's chucking it down with rain outside and blowing a gale outside, and relish the surreal experience of the words of Uptown Top Ranking to the tune of 'When You Wish Upon A Star'.
