Showery joy

I spent about 40 minutes of a very precious morning on the weekend, scrubbing out the shower recess.
So much bloody grout. So many bloody corners. And glass, for goodness' sake – with frames and even more bloody grouting. Let alone a framed glass door that pivots in such a way that you can't get to bits of it – obviously designed by a man who has never ever in his life had to clean a bathroom. Just as the Dyson vacuum cleaner is designed by a bloke who must never, ever vacuum anything other than a small room with no furniture in it. And don't even get me started on the nooks and crannies in the average fridge ...
Anyway, as I scrubbed in the shower, wearing only a grimace and a pair of spectacles, I thought about the perfect shower.
And this is just about it.

Apart from the meeting of floor and wall, there are no corners, and lordy lordy! No effing stupid, stupid glass. Roomy, too. And see how the sunshine gets in? No mould!
If the curtain gets manky, you can just chuck it out.
Big wall tiles, so there's much less grout. And though the floor tiles are tiny, with lots of grout, it is not effing white.
And when I build this in my home I will have a hose on the outside wall, just around from the door, for even easier cleaning!

We were very excited to learn the temperature was going to drop to 10 degrees C last night.
Time for Big Red's first outing!
 So much to celebrate with the start of cooler weather (fingers crossed ... mind you, it even rained this week). The Dockers beat St Kilda in Melbourne last night, and Colton got voted off American Idol. Yay and yay!

Have a great weekend.
