Spoilt or What?

When sitting on my favourite spot for contemplation I considered that I was becoming spoilt! Our new house has a combination toilet in the en-suite shower-room which has a heated loo-seat. Yesterday I took a bath (in the spare bathroom) and was ‘shocked’ when I came to sit on the traditional loo. Aaagggghhhh, it’s COLD!

Yes we’re one of the few households with these new combination loos (toilet and bidet in one).

Isn’t it interesting how quickly a technological development can become an ‘essential’ for modern living! Remember the old Bakelite telephones hard-wired to the junction box in the hallway compared to the latest smartphone, or the 12 inch B&W set we grew up with (bought to watch QEII’s coronation in 1953) compared to todays’ large HD screens, or ‘push-bikes’ with a single gear compared to lightweight index-geared quick-released wheel jobs so widely available today (OK, if you live in Amsterdam or some other places, old ‘bone-shakers’ are still the norm).

For now I guess I’ll have to accept that I’m spoilt as it’ll take a long time, if ever, for combo toilets to become the norm.

And why have a bidet in the first place? – DON’T ask!!
