Compare that to my family, right now in this modern day and age and it spreads over many seas and it's not just my actual family.  VIEW the POST

A bathroom dream… but not for me…

A bathroom dream… but not for me…

Tots100 and Bathshop321 are running a competition at the moment and all I have to do is post about my dream bathroom, but as I live in rented accommodation it is hard to see the dream bathroom in my house and so I have all these visions about my grandparents house. VIEW the POST
