I do my best thinking in the shower!!



Last night I restored my brain in the shower.  I never realised just how much I depend on a shower to clear my mind and make me see things clearly.  It is also where my great ideas are born. 

I took for granted a long shower in our old house as we had a massive hot water system and I could stand there for hours and then get out with a much clearer head.  This was totally ok as we had a rain water tank (best money ever spent) that we used for the laundry, toilets and garden so even with showers, baths and a gazillion loads of dishes every day we used less water than sydney water said was average for a 1 person household.  Seriously the most we ever paid for water was about $30 the rest of the bill was made up in all the charges. It was my luxury and after 12 weeks of either having a shower first and rushing to save hot water or having the last shower and having it go cold after a few minutes it was fantastic!!

So today despite a shocking nights sleep I am one happy camper!!  My head is clear and full of positive and useful thoughts, the problems from yesterday have solutions and due to the fact I had a long hot shower my hair was washed properly with adult shampoo instead of kids shampoo and it looks great.  Ok not great but better!!  And that was even with the 2 kids in the shower with me.  Imagine the possibilities when I actually get to have a long hot shower by myself!  I am really hoping the new fandangled heat pump thingy we have to have when we get back home works or I am going straight out and buying the biggest electric rheem I can find and I do not care if they are illegal now!!

I also restored order in my world by downloading itunes to my laptop and making a new "mixed tape/cd" for my car.  Nothing better than blasting my fave songs loud and singing at the top of my lungs!! 

Go ahead do something fun I dare you!!  And if you have a heat pump for heating water are they any good?  Should I just got out and get a big electric system now?  Also this new improved Ann already has half a FFS friday post written already somethings never change!!

  1. I love shower thinking as well. I think one of the reasons I like living this far north is that I don't have to worry about water restrictions, mind you we are still looking at a rain water tank for some stuff.

  2. I agree, the shower is the best place to think and relax. I love it when I can have a shower sans little people and I can have it super hot and super powerful and it gets right into the knots in my shoulder. Clears my head and makes things seem manageable!
