my trip to Melbourne on the weekend, (the excitement is not only because it will be cold and I'll get to wear an overcoat, but that's part of it) ...
I'm pouring over bathroom catalogues. Our extensions at Tarzali will be starting soon and we've never been involved in a new "build" before. But we've been told that all the bathroom fittings need to be decided now, so the correctly placed outlets can go into the concrete pad. So it's decision time. As we're sticking with the country cottage look, we're opting for this bath.
I've never been a great one for baths, but the red dirt of the Tablelands has a habit of clinging to one's toes, so a good long soak is a must. Plus, this bath looks so inviting, I think. I'll position a small stool close by for a drink and a book, of course!! (And yes, we'll have a shower as well. This is still the tropics, after all. :)
And we've found a lovely vanity made from silky oak with gorgeous old fashioned tiles in greens and pinks that will match the old, recycled, green and pink windows E's restoring. So fingers crossed, the builder approves. (It's 4 mm bigger than the max width he allowed us).
OK, back to work. I'm a little over halfway into this book, with a big dramatic scene looming, but I have to create a lovely, gentle scene first... At least that's the plan... :)
