The pleasure of the Bath
.
Nothing better
than a candlelit soak
while it snows out.

Damn this drafty old house
with its shower stall.

I lived a while in a flat with no bath... at that time I used to only take holidays in places where I could have a bath (and then spend ages in it)!

Aw, NanU!! That's so sad. I once got a lovely set of bath salts for a friend, not realising they were in the same predicament! Don't think they ever got to use them

I like this. Makes me shiver, though.

The place we lived when we were first married (20 years ago) didn't have a bathtub. My brand new husband was so mortified to be depriving my of my famous 3 hour baths. Funny now - I very rarely take one...

Thwarted you are! We've just had a rethink about our new house and switched one of the shower stalls to a full bath. Can't live without a bathtub, can you?

I actually had a bath removed, 'cos I like showers better! But there are no draughts in a shower cabinet. lol

Oh yes.

I don't take baths that often either, but when you need a nice quiet soak, you need one!
And the shower stall has just a curtain, not a solid door, so the rising steam pulls the curtain in toward your body and it ends up clinging to my legs unless I keep it clipped to a shelf. The thing isn't bigger than a phone booth. I hate it!
