Hello Little Speck!
Well, you know what happened last night, ’cause you got right in on the action too. Yes, that’s right. We got to have a bath at home! YAAAAAYYYYY!!!
As you know, our bathroom at home, while lovely, doesn’t have a bathtub, just a shower. And I really LOVE my baths. So anyway, yesterday your dad got it in his head that I needed a bath (I have been moaning every day about how much I feel like just lying in the bath after having one each day when we went away the weekend before last). And he has been thinking about it – we’ve had fantasies about building a bath house in the garden. And we’ve been thinking about how to cheaply renovate our bathroom and put one in… But all take time and money and are relatively complicated.
But yesterday, your Dad got inspired and all I heard him say as he ran out the door in the morning while I was on the phone for work was something about building me a bath. He returned a number of hours later with some stuff on the roof of the car, and continued to make sawing, hammering and drilling noises into the night. And then, at about 8:30 pm, it was done! My own little bath filled with hot steaming water on our back deck. The steam rising off it into the night, the possoms in the tree beside it looking on in interest. ….
So.. I got in! Check it out:
Looking out to the left of the deck you can see the tops of the city buildings, and the way I’m facing in the photo above across the back yard and through to the trees in the neighbourhood…
See! Pretty cool I think…
full recline – see its a little small, but perfect for the back corner of the deck….
So we will be soaking every day from now on.
Thanks G for the old bathtub. Yay for your dad. He is amazing.
I thought as I lay in bed this morning that I’d share with you what it feels like to be carrying you around at this stage. Its not something I can readily describe, so a photo is going to have to suffice.
So: This is what you look like to me when I’m lying in bed…
Somewhat like a beached whale, you have to agree…
