Baths have never been my thing. The thought of filling up a tub with water and sitting in your own filth really left me feeling a certain kind of way.
So much so, I think I last took a bath in my early teens. Showers are more my thing. For starters you get to stand up and have the hot water fall against your body as you cleanse yourself of the days impurities.
We have been in Canberra for a good eight months now and not once have I been tempted to take a bath or have a bath as they say – even thought our apartment is brand new.
My stomach is expanding and some days after a long day my back hurts, my feet swell – just general pregnancy aches and pains really. So its only now I am flirting with hydrotherapy.
I made the decision that if I was going to bathe, I was going to go all the way – no half stepping. I looked through Pinterest for ideas to decorate the surface area around our bath tub. Think candles, potpourri, bath bombs etc. After I purchased my goods and carefully arranged them – the bath tub was looking more and more enticing.
Meanwhile hubby is watching all this wanders with a bemused look on his face.
Earlier I mentioned that wasn’t to keen to sit in my own filth, so prior to bathing I showered. No judgement, each to their own I say.
After my 5 minute shower, I lit up all my candles, run the bath and poured some bubble bath ointment. I searched for some tunes as I was watched the bubbles foam in the bath tub. I settled on Toni Braxton Greatest hits album, I was in the mood for some slow jamz.
With great anticipation I stepped into the tub. As I lay inside the warm bubbly water I felt so relaxed and so content with life. In the background I could faintly hear Toni Braxton serenading me but I found my mind wondering – reminiscing on the past, thinking about the present and things to look forward to in the near future.
Not sure how, but a good hour passed by as i floated in the now warm bath tub. I might have even dozed off I was so relaxed. I think its safe to say, I will now spend my time between the shower and the bath tub, comfortably.
