Showering praise

Finally, after 5 years of building we can have a proper shower at the end of the day.  We started out with a solar shower - an upmarket name for a black plastic bag with a small shower head attached.  On the first day we hung it on the side of the tank and had a cold shower.  The second night the same bag moved into a discrete corner of the shed and was filled from the electric jug - and that's the way it's been for the last 5 years. (Mind you, when you're only around for a weekend at a time it is surprising what you can put up with.)

So, it was with much joy that we christened the greatly improved shower this Easter and ushered in a whole new era of comfort.  Yes, it may look just like a red plastic bucket with a tap and a shower head- but when suspended from a rafter in the shed it actually has enough pressure to wash your hair. 

A huge step forward in shower technology
PS-Imagine the joy we will experience when we install the inside shower with actual plumbing!
