Well, it's been two weeks since I first wrote about the work on the bathroom. We've had a great new tub and faucets but no shower. As I said, we were thinking about tiling, but honestly there weren't many choices at Lowe's or Home Depot, and our little local tile store closed; and the cost was pretty high, and it would take a long time and a lot of work, so we decided to go with a tub surround. It comes in three sections so it will fit through the doors. I'm quite sure the quality has improved since our 1985 one. It just came in today, and Tom's on his way home with it. I thought I'd post a couple pics of the tub before he puts up the surround. It has been lovely for these many days to have taken a bath. And for the first time in my life, I've been reading in the bath. I'm embarking on Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks series. I had read a few out of order, and am now going back to the beginning. They are perfect bath reading - small, paperback, and great writing. Someone kindly left a comment with another address, so you may also go here to read more about the author and his books.
Raya loves drinking right out of the tap. I think this may be her coon cat heritage.
