    Having A Bath. 17th Oct 16 at 7:03 PM
    Hello, I have more showers than baths, but now and then I like a good old soak in a bath, and when I'm lying back I think to myself I don't now how people can have baths with candles around the tub flickering or drinking a glass of wine.

    Well not for me I like peace only in the bath

    Anyone else the same or do you like baths with candles wine etc.

    A woman who was stuck in her bath for four days was rescued after a waitress realised she had not been in for her regular lunch.

    How do you keep the water warm? After 20-25 mins, the water goes cold.

    I imagine these people that drink wine in the bath, stay in the bath longer than this?

    I like a good tub and scrub rather than a shower, and I like to read while I relax. I can't be bothered with candles and anyway, the light for reading isn't as good as a bog standard striplight.
    The advantage of a bath over a shower is that it is easier to keep a book dry in the former.

    I would love to have a bath but with two bad knees I can't get out again.

    I remember one incident in the hospital I had to be helped out by 2 nurses. Since I had one knee replaced its been worse

    I am in, washed, out, dried and PJs on.
    I cannot soak as I don't want to lay in "dirty" water, even though it is my "dirty" water

    Showers for functionality of being clean, baths for wallowing/destressing in or during winter having a nice old warm up.
    And hell no to candles/drinks or books, cant to bothered with all that faff.

    It sounds like you need one of those baths with a door in it. I've never understood what you do when all the water pours out the door when you open it though. It must make an awful mess.

    Presumably you drain the bath and THEN get out.
    Wouldnt work for me, it gets awfully cold waiting for a bath to drain, i have to hop out and get dried to stay warm, invariably im dry and dressed before its drained.

    Occasional bath, with a lovely bomb, to relax.

    I don't read in the bath, the book would go soggy, as I've seen when a certain friend returns books or passes them on.
