After having to take showers behind the moldy curtain that I share with seven other girls for seven months, it's nice to come home and be able to lay in a clean bath with a book by my side. (Usually there are bubbles). My mom has the most beautiful bathroom that has a...
I used to study over my last few points before an exam whilst running a bath the night before the exam- there was something hypnotic about the running of water that helped detach the part of my brain that could be distracted otherwise from my notes.
I would then relax in the...
Who hath a book
Has friends at hand,
And gold and gear
At his command;
And rich estates,
If he but look,
Are held by him
Who hath a book.

We have a really large bath and I like to fill it up almost too hot to get in and then relax with a wine and a good book.. I have ruined afew by staying in too long and they come out with wrinkly pages... but it just the most relaxing place... except I come out...
I did last night. I just get bored otherwise!! Blowing bubbles can only keep me amused for so long!! I have to find entertainment some other way, and that entertainment is reading. I got a new book the other day that I was immersed in, I managed to stay in the bath for a good...
