Mummy's Bath

As part of confinement practices, I haven't been allowed to bathe 'normally'. For the 1st week, I didn't bathe at all (eek) and subsequently, I could only do so with a herbal bath, and even then not everyday.

Thankfully, I have the air-conditioner turned on most of the time, and the ceiling fan blowing as well. I have survived by blotting my head with facial blotters on non-bath days and washing essential bits of myself with warm water.

The bath water prepared for me by my MIL and helper requires a lot of work to prepare. They boil 4 stock pots each time to fill 2 big pails. Besides the usual packet herbs, lemongrass and coriander seeds are pounded and thrown in. The smell is heavenly - much like the kind of bath water you get at a spa. I feel my pores open up and cleansed each time I bathe.

Haha, right now I don't have the luxury to have LONG baths! Everything I do has to be rushed and squeezed in between feeds.

I like a long hot bath with a fan blowing over the water so you dont get too hot. Also, you should set up your laptop on a chair and watch a movie from the tub. Such an escape - You might get a bit pruney, though...
