Things you can do in...

...the bath.

Just like your bed, the bath is very much under utilised. Most people just sit in it for a bit while they get clean then get out again. Some people even stand up in the bath to have a shower. What a waste.

The bathroom isn't really geared up for activities requiring electronic items, but with the help of a small table and an extension cord you can easily blog or watch DVDs with your laptop. It helps to have a decent extractor fan if there's no window in your bathroom.

I have a pair of quality speakers wired up in my bathroom. The bath is the perfect place to crank up the tunes and relax with a few beers, early on a weekend evening.

As with the bed, the bath is a great place to eat food, but in the bath you're not as restricted with you choices. It doesn't matter if you slop or spill you food because, well, you're in the bath. I do try to avoid anything that expands when it absorbs water though, such as buttered Weetabix for breakfast. Boiled eggs and toast soldiers are fine if you use your laptop table.

Reading is also good as the bath is very relaxing and you get to concentrate fully on your literature. I wouldn't recommend broadsheet newspapers though, unless your intention is to make paper mache. If I need to read a Haynes manual, I always run a bath first. The bathroom is the only place where I can make sense of vehicle electrical wiring diagrams.

Spend a bit of time in the bath if you want to get the most out of it, don't be too eager to get out. I typically spend an hour or so in the bath. Have a shave and trim the old bush while you're in there.

If you do spend a while in the bath remember, a good layer of bubbles will keep the water hotter for longer.

If you get one of those crappy BB guns from the pound shop you can line some empty cans up on the end of the bath and have a little target practice. Remember to clear all the BBs out of the bath before you empty it though. The don't go through the u-bend.

If you've tried all these things in the bath, why not invite your other half to join you? More fun can be had with two.

And you can always keep it simple. A hot bubble bath is by far the best place for a cuppa and a fag. Try to keep a lighter in the bathroom at all times. There's nothing worse than having to get out and go downstairs when you're wet.

There's so much more to the bath than you know. Send in your suggestions on the back of a postcard...
