Christening with bubbles

Well, there was no-one home to take photos...but I had the first bath this morning. It was chucking down with rain and wind outside and I just couldn't face the outdoor shower. So I turned on the tap.....

It. was. gorgeous. The bath is HUGE. Plenty of length and breadth. And so deep!
It will never look this gorgeous again. The new green towels are now on the rails. And there are candles on the deep window sill.
We don't have a door yet. There's been a few carpentry errors. It has been promised for Monday. And the shower screen will be installed hopefully by the end of the week, so we can't yet take a shower but (I think) it looks wonderful.

We're (the favourite husband and I) painting architraves and the new cornices, and of course the ceiling. But on the whole...we're thrilled to bits with it. :) (Please forgive the squashy nature of the 'paragraphs' below - for some reason blogger won't allow better formatting)
Update...door on Tuesday/Wed now, and the shower screen is still not in either. So STILL showering outside in 3 degrees. I was right. It IS getting a bit old now. 4 full weeks and counting. Just a door would be nice so I could at least feel I could use the loo in privacy.
What have you been up to?
P.S. Apart from painting, plans for the weekend include finishing Jarryd's quilt, after a hiccup or two.
P.P.S. Went to see the movie Angels and Demons last night and unfortunately there were some sound glitches and the last 25 minutes of the film was without sound. We had piped muzac over the climax of the film, including Fleetwood Mac Rhiannon (taken by, taken by the wind, occurring at exactly the right spots surprisingly) the Star Wars theme as Ewan MacGregor was involved with some flames. We got freebies to return but I'm not sure I want to sit through it all again. 7/10. FRUSTRATING!
