Since we had out bathroom replaced, we have been without shower. Its a slightly long and rather boring story which I can’t be bothered to write so just be aware that there is no shower – thats the important bit.
I like baths. Baths are for relaxing in. Showers I like also. They are practical. They are for waking you up in the morning and washing your hair.
Recently, I have had extreme trouble waking up in the morning. So much so, that when I get into the bath, I often fall back asleep. I also find that washing my (very thick) hair takes for ever. And then factoring in drying/straightening and I’ve virtually got to get up at dawn to fit it all it. So I have started washing my hair in the evening. It is a pain. And it means that I have bed head for most of the day. Even if I dry my hair before I go to sleep (which I do as it would make my pillow rather damp).
Anyway, the purpose of this post is to celebrate the fact that I have done this for the last time. My hair is washed and clean. And the new shower is being installed tomorrow. I am very excited about it. I am almost more excited about the shower than about something else very exciting that is happening on Friday but that I can’t tell you about yet.
I am expecting roughly 20-30mins extra in bed every day. If we take the lower estimate and multiply that by the 5 mornings that I have to get up for work, we get an hour. Thats right, ladies and gentlemen, a whole extra hour in bed over the course of a week all due to the wonderful and glorious invention that is the shower.
I was going to end there but I feel that I ought to mention that my love of a very long, hot soak in a bath, with a good book and a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) will be returning shortly. Hooray for all the clever bathroom things.
