This week I'm playing along again with Pip and Pilgrim and what an appropriate theme this one is. Five minutes peace, doesn't that sound good? It's music to my ears right now, what a busy time of year it is. Besides my bed, which is one sanctuary that I love, I also crave some regular peace and quiet in the bath. Through my bathroom window is a lovely old apricot tree and the white wall of the very old house next door.
I love to lie in the bath and just DO NOTHING. Yep, nothing. (There should be more of it!) Well I try to anyway. A bit of lavender oil and a candle or two....bliss. Of course there is usually a steady stream of visitors but they are not encouraged to stay for lengthy conversations/accusations/salutations!
Besides just trying to relax and not think too much in the bath, which I seriously need to do sometimes, then I might have a look through a mag or maybe a book. This is a bit fraught however as I have dropped a book in the bath once and the library weren't too impressed.. Have you read The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas? I have just read it for our Book Club and really enjoyed it. What a thought provoking read it is. It has launched many conversations amongst friends lately...but not in the bath!
Anyway, I think we all need five minutes away from the hustle and bustle don't we? Have a look over here for more spaces xo
