Mother-in-law update: she is feeling fine this morning, sitting up in bad, and fancies some yoghurt and honey for breakfast. Thank goodness Andrew did not rush to her bedside. It would have been a blight on the end of this lovely trip.......
Leaving our excellent camping cabin this morning to drive to Bilbao - I just wanted to record the diligence of my husband (aka The Concierge) who noticed the strange plumbing addition to the loo. It is no ordinary loo but a combi-bidet, which I have heard about but never seen before and certainly never used.
As well as this tap arrangement beside the seat, there is a small spout which projects over the basin part, directed right where you want it.
I recommend it.
I am a keen fan of bidets, for two reasons. One is of course their practicality for cleaning purposes (and I am learning that more and more people think like me that we could all be a bit cleaner in the botty area).
The second reason will appeal to ladies.
It turns out that there is a whole erotic area on the inside of a girl's legs, the upper inner thigh, which is best experienced when stimulated by a wash of warm water. It is literally sensational.
I look forward to seeing wash-lavs or whatever they are called installed in homes and hotels throughout the world. And I urge anyone who has the chance to put a full bidet into their bathroom to do so and jolly well try it out. Adds lots and lots to life......
