A welcome sale on the first day of the month. But a non PU on a Sunday?! This is part of a group of photos of Pompeii and Herculaneum from 2016, that I (ahem...) only just got around to keywording. Just goes to show!!

I can’t wrap my head around how dirty public baths must’ve been.

At least they bathed fairly regularly. Most people during Elizabethan times only bathed several times a year, if that!

Some working from home advantages are that it often enables you to work whenever you want. Depends on the job and circumstances of course, but, if it's already been decided and in the cart, as it were, then why not do it on a Sunday and have another 15 mins lie-in on a Monday morning?! 😉😁

I've just had a PU come in, which is understandable given the subject, hoping it sticks. After my 2 October sales it would be nice to continue the positive note.

3 sales of the same location this morning. This must have to do with the relaxation of restrictions in Victoria.

Australia - Magazine - $$

"I have a bath once a year - whether I need it or not!"🙃

 

The charming image of the family sharing bath water in a tin bath in front of a coal fire in the sitting room is getting to be a dim memory. Well not a memory for me, but a hundred years ago it was a reality for more than a few. In our comfortable Suffolk house, we had the central heating system upgraded a couple of weeks ago and quickly ran out of hot water.  For a few days things got pretty basic. If that's all we have to moan about, things must be OK. The wine rack looks healthy, we have good local shops and enough loo roll to reasonably last the coming month of lockdown. Now all we need is for some level of sensibility to return in the course of tonight's poll across the pond and we can all look forward  to long wintery evenings as we try to deal with what this pandemic is throwing at us. No snow for a while thanks!

I assume Marcus Aurelius knew how to do a proper military wash.

I had a chat with these guys before taking the picture. They lift your spirits up.

Educational use...

To the not so charming refrain from one child to another, “Don’t pee in the water!”  I’ve heard tales!
