The luxury of indoor plumbing at last!

We have indoor plumbing!

We have a toilet that flushes.

We almost have a sink, but a piece was missing from the package and Plumber Man will bring the replacement bit from his stash of gadgets and hook it up today. He did, however, install a set of laundry taps for me, so that I actually had running water last night as well as a flushing toilet.

Tonight, I'm supposed to even have a shower.

Plumber Man is officially my Favourite Person of The Week!

It feels like such absolute luxury to have these things. In our part of the world, we tend to consider them 'necessities' and take them entirely for granted. Next time you turn that tap, take a moment to think about how wonderful it truly is!
