I admit, I am a shower person normally, but there is something about a having a bath that is so relaxing. You feel as though you can soak away your cares and worries. Having small children means that having the time for a bath can be difficult, but sometimes you need that little break. I loved it when my other half promised to keep the kids occupied while I relaxed in a hot soapy bubble bath.
I love bath products too, they are so much more luxurious than shower gels and lotions. You can have your bath smelling of whatever you wish, even chocolate if that’s your thing of delight. You can add glitter bombs and fizzy bombs and smells that enhance your mood. I loved to fill my bath with tons of bubbles and relaxing scents and just lie back and chill out.

We stayed in a hotel in Blackpool once and there was a jacuzzi bath tub. I couldn’t wait to try it out and was in it like a flash. It was lovely, after a long journey it was just what I needed. When I finished I emptied the bath and eek! I couldn’t work out how to turn off the jacuzzi, it just kept whirring away with no water. After the Other Half had a go at turning it off we gave in and called reception for help. By the time help arrived it had turned itself off. Ooops! tad embarrassing.
I can remember the last day I had a bath, it was January 1st this year. The day that I woke up with these horrible pins and needles that wouldn’t go away. I tried everything and then my Other Half suggested having a relaxing bath. So I did, and it was lovely. Sadly, although it made me feel more relaxed (I’d been getting pretty stressed) it didn’t take away the pins and needles. This was the day I ended up in hospital with Transverse Myelitis. Now, I can’t even get in our walk-in shower without help, having a bath is out of the question.
Or is it? I was thinking that a wet room was the way to go. A Shower that I didn’t have to get help to step in, with a comfortable chair and a non slip floor. It would work perfectly for me and it’s probably the way I would go. But I would miss my bubble baths, I know I would. It’s not just about getting clean, it’s about relaxing and taking time for yourself. Then I saw these walk in baths at Premier Bathrooms and I thought how lovely it would be. I wouldn’t need help to get in and I’d feel safe and able to relax just like I used to. This is definitely on my want list.
