Splish splash I was takin' a bath

Well, I gave in.
Sponge baths are all very well but pullll-eeeeeze!
If we can't shower until sometimes next week (eeeeek) I was determined to have a soak in the old bath (yes, we saved it to soak away the heat of the coming Summer).
Hubby and I set it up on bricks then he wrestled the bucket of hot water out about 5 times before I leapt into it.
Lazing back in the bath, under the plum tree, with the wild birds gathering in the tree tops to gawk at the stupid pink monkey floating in the uber-large birdbath while the chooks brook-brook-brooooooked loudly in disapproval at the side and gazing at the grey clouds up above was simply splendid.
Yes, you did need to know this.
Yes, we are taking bookings for nightly nature baths but, no, fishing and snorkeling will not be allowed.
