Last night, after fitting my new loo seat and scrubbing the bathroom from top to bottom, I lit a whole load of candles, filled the bath, threw in a bath ballistic, set a large glass of cranberry at hand, turned the radio on low in the next room and clambered in. At first my head was full of thoughts about the day, the week and things that have happened in life and in my head, but then as the warm water lapped around me, the gentle light of the candles flickered against the wall and the soft sounds floated in from the living room, tiredness took over and I laid back, relaxed and dozed for nearly an hour. Absolute bliss – there is no finer way to end the day (although a massage would have really been the icing on the cake).
