A shower is coming

Every time I’ve gone into the bathroom today someone else has taken a shower! I suspect that having our house at double capacity has resulted in the shower queue extending all the way from this morning to this evening. I have images of people listening at the bedroom doors along the corridor, waiting for their moment to dart in and claim the bathroom for themselves.

It is now almost 2100 and I reckon the last shower was about an hour ago …

I wonder if it’s my turn yet?

By the waters

I go outside to get on my bike.

Cue: Torrential rain.

Phone decides to laugh at my predicament and play songs with such lyrics as “there is a river” and “you may be in water so deep you’re drowning.” Meanwhile, I try to keep my head above the water line in the puddles I’m crossing, and attempt to be thankful that I pumped my tyres up enough this morning that my bike should be able to float if it comes down to it.

Laid up in store
