Bubble Bath

 

As our cooler weather begins to sneak its way in now I love to have a huge bubble bath… Now I know thats not politically correct with our dire shortage of water in Australia but that is one reason I choose to live in Hobart. However we do limit them and really appreciate the fact that we are able to have one when the time comes. With our new renovation a few years ago we were lucky to have quite a large bath so mine is not often peaceful and relaxing, more likely shared with at least two other eager participants…. We have had all four girls in there but the eldest is now a little more modest.. and its getting a bit squishy!

So Bubble Bath had to be included in my ‘Nice things’ category as there is nothing more decadent and special… Sometimes I do get it to myself with a nice vanilla candle, soft music, champagne  – well actually I cannot remember the last time but I am sure it did happen once…. we can dream…

I have never tried this but I thought with Google around there must be some bubble bath recipes available. You bet there are…. hundreds, here are a couple I may try
