I had my first ever bath in our old claw foot tonight. Well that isn't strictly true… I did attempt to have a bath about a month ago only to discover the Mr. had turned off the hot water system. And then there was the time shortly after we first moved in when I tried to wash my hair in the shower but realised the water was way too hot and I couldn't change the water temperature because the plumber hadn't attached the mixer tap yet. On that occasion I did an emergency dunk of my head into the bath to rinse the shampoo off, but I don't think that really counts. This was my first proper relaxing soak. I seem to be taking more and more projects on lately and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Some may call it procrastinating (and they'd probably be right) but I felt a soak in the tub might help melt the stress away.
I've been taking some product photos for a friend of mine that makes hand poured soy candles. One perk of this job was that I got a few lovely candles for myself! I lit my favourite coffee scented candle during tonight's bath. Next time I think I'll add a glass of red and a good book and things will be pretty much perfect!!
