Pleasures of home

Hooray, I'm home. Ali is distant, Alfie is clingy, pretty much par for the course. Tomorrow will require considerable shopping, as I appear to be out of everything except tea.

However, allow me for a moment to wax poetic about my shower at home, and the things it has that some or all of the showers I've used in the past two weeks didn't have, and I missed badly:

- a window
- good water pressure and a shower-head that doesn't spray water every which way
- the ability to mix hot and cold water to reach an ideal temperature
- a mirror where it's actually useful
- a towel of a reasonable size that I'm sure has been washed sometime in the past six months
- more than one towel, if I wanted it (this is a big deal, ok? short hair drips like crazy)
- space to move, with more than a single step between the shower and the door, which means I can wrap myself in a towel without it getting all wet from the shower wall
- my own soap (this is also more important than it sounds, using shower gel because it's easier to carry than solid soap was annoying)

Most important, my shower doesn't smell like mold. It's sort of delightful. The little things, you know?
