Yesterday I had a little time to myself so I thought I would give myself a bit of a pamper. It had been a while so I thought I would have a nice soak in the bath and do a facepack and all the girly stuff I don't usually do.
So I ran the bath got everything ready jumped in ... and then out again because it was too hot [isn't it always?] After running another couple of gallons of cold water, I sat myself down stretched out and this happened:
I have one question for America, the land of bigger is better. What the bloody hell happened to your baths?? Really? I'm only 5 feet 2 and I can't lie down without my knees touching my chin!!
To add insult to injury I turned around and saw this:
The bath is so low, I thought Spencer was about to join me. So much for my hour of pampering. Its worse than having kids - at least you can tell them to bugger off out and close the door.
Yes, I did have my phone with me because as anyone knows, the minute you step in the bath the phone rings.
Also, it was not easy to get my hair washed in that tiny little tub so I gave up and went in the shower!
Oh, how I miss my English bath that was so long I practically had to drown myself to put my feet on the end and it was so deep I could barely rest my elbows on the edges without looking like I was trying to fly. Ahhh...
But then I remembered how flipping cold it was when you got out and tried to get dry and dressed before frost bite set in, especially in October. That's when I decided I would stick with the American shower.
It's not like this was the first time I had ever been in an American bath, but it's been such a long time and it looked all neglected and lonely sitting in the corner. I had just forgotten just how flaming small they were.
Apparently countries have different priorities. In England its all about depth with long, skinny and deep baths and in America its about width with short, wide and shallow baths. [I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere]
