I am not a bath person. In fact, I haven't bathed in over a
A friend of mine hates the bath because she says it's just like
stewing in your own dirt. Lovely image, really.
I am officially a shower person. But because I still think a bath
is useful for the occasional candlelit soak
with plenty bubble
bath and a bottle of wine, I don't think we should throw out
the bath altogether. I considered making it into a terrarium
for a lizard, turning it into a big pot plant holder and even a
very-easy-to-empty fishbowl. But better still, why not just
store it away when you're not using it? Fold it up like one of
those fold up beds. You could make the bath out of a
relatively light material that can be lifted quite easily. The
bath folds up against the wall, hiding the taps and faucets,
leaving only a clear wall and a lot more space in my cramped
bathroom. The plughole can be moved to the side of the bath
at the bottom, so that most of the water drains out, and the
last bit of water disappears when you tip the bath up to hide
hang it up on the wall outside
