Well, dear darlings, this is one of the surprise dividends I've discovered having made that "duh" decision to follow the seasons through the medium of bedrooms (per my previous post).
I get a bigger bathroom!
And a bath tub.
A place to loll about in bubbles.
We built this bathroom 7 years ago.
Over the years it's become the guest room's ensuite.
Not ours. So the "duh" dividend is that I get to use a nice bathroom too.
Why oh why did I give this nice bathroom over to the occasional user?
When it could be mine?
It's been such a novelty, sleeping in this "new" bedroom and using this "new" bathroom. I find myself "discovering" things. I find myself saying "Oh look, the owner's left us some hotel bathroom products", and "I like the way she's created a little dressing table in that corner".
Yes, it feels like I'm on holiday. Like I've done a house swap. It's fun!
The bathroom has a Jack and Jill arrangement with the next bedroom. which is twin-bedded.
To spare the users and embarrassing moments, the locking mechanism is Jack and Jill too.
I find myself rushing to the bathroom when I awake. No not for the obvious! I fling open the window and see what the world has on offer today. Like little ponies.
The larger of these two is a shire cross. She's gorgeous and looks so beautiful when cantering, her mane, tail and hoof feathers splaying with the wind.
And when I finish my perusing out the window, I wear things like this.
To deal with boxes of old make up and undies that MUST be sorted and consigned to somewhere other than the nooks and crannies of Chez Pout.
Black jeans and vest column and a comfy beige jumper.
And here's a first in blogland ... newly manicured and gelled nails displayed on arthritic fingers!
A la perchoine.
