bath vs shower

with 2 comments

I am back from Liverpool. Had a great time. Will report fully on curacy developments soon. Suffice to say we are very happy.

This is the Lido at Cirencester – great pool, rubbish showers (they do pot noodles and tea. Good chocolate selection and excellent floats to play with in the pool)

It is great to be home. We have been blessed with a great shower here. I much prefer a shower to a bath and last week (whilst staying in the yurt) I realised how much I love being clean – mainly because it as such an effort to boil water, carry it to the ‘shower shed’ then hand pump it through to get a slight trickle of luke warm water to wash with. It was so much effort for so little gain. In the end we went to the lido in Cirencester (which is great fun if you ever get the chance to visit) in order to have a shower. It cost 20p and was cool and ineffective. Anyway, I thought I would take this opportunity to list my top five showers:
1. the power shower at my Mum’s flat in Virginia Water. Very powerful and invigorating.
2. the shower at my house. Once you get used to it it provides a hot, powerful hose down.
3. the shower at the hotel we stayed at in Florence. Aesthetically pleasing, like showering in the rain.
4. Phil Jackson‘s shower cubicle. Very clean and he always has good products.
5. The shower in our old house on Thornycroft Road. It took so long to sort out but it was great.

Showers to avoid:
1. the self generating one at the yurt camp. Stupid and ineffective.
2. the shower at the Lido Cirencester. Cold and cost 20p.
3. the shower in the middle bathroom at the Grange. Never quite felt comfortable.
4. the shower in Carter J corridor. Too small and like a plastic telephone box. Weird
5. the shower at the B&B in Belfast. Small, no ventilation and no shelf for bottles etc.

  1. Best shower ever is in a B&B in Trottiscliffe, Kent. The bathroom was about twice the size of your front room. The shower was in one corner. No shower curtain, simply an enormous tiled quadrant, so big you were never in danger of wetting the carpet beyond. Sadly virtually every other B&B I’ve been in has had a shower the size of a shoebox.
