We're adding a bath in this new boat build home of ours. It's been nearly a decade since we last had one to call our own and the near giddiness of longing we reached upon realising we could once again incorporate one into our home was nearly overwhelming. It might sound extreme, and we're grateful for having any means whatsoever to scrub clean our pikey selves, but a bath? Somewhere to lay and read and ease those aching joints? How could we refuse?
And so today, with hose from the water point outside, we tested the waters to see how she lies.
and those waters were sun-hose warm and sparkling bright. And the tub leaked a little. But we stood in it and marvelled at it before seeking out the means to make it fully watertight. Soon, very soon, our bathroom will have walls and perhaps, one day, we won't need the hose to fill our little tub.
