Saturday Scratch #39
If the family bathroom was ever out of action when I was a wee nipper, I would have to endure what Mum would call 'a wash down'. This involved standing in a washing-up bowl on the kitchen floor, while she poured lukewarm water over my head and scrubbed me with a rough flannel. We're experiencing an uncannily similar, if slightly more grown-up, version of the same thing at the moment. The bathroom is currently a building site as walls are insulated, windows replaced, tiles laid and, hopefully sometime late next week, a new suite is installed. To be honest, I'm a a bit long in the tooth for all this wash down malarkey (dousing oneself in water at the kitchen sink ain't what it's cracked up to be), but I know it'll all be worth it in the end.
For the many or for the few? You decide. Part Chimp - You Decide
