To think it's weird to have a bath in the morning

OH loves his baths and has one in the morning and one at night if he can.

Surely fresh invigorating showers are for the morning and deep relaxing baths are for nighttime??

Not everyone has a shower. Did dp growing up? He's maybe used to a morning bath.

I have occasionally lived in houses with a bath but no shower.

I had a quick bath each morning then.

A shower is my preferred choice where available.

I prefer baths full stop, and don't particularly see them as relaxing - they are just for getting clean. I imagine your DH is the same. I only use a shower in preference to a bath when the weather is really warm.

never had a shower growing up, so became proficient at quick morning baths.

I have had a shower in my house for two years now and only started using it a few months ago. old habits and all that.

I love a bath at any time of day.

I shower when I need a quick wash. I bath if I have an hour or more to spare. It's one of my favourite ways to relax and recuperate - regardless of what time it is.

I know what you mean. My dad does the crossword in the bath every morning - I don't know how he has the time!

I agree I'd prefer a shower in the morning and a bath at night, but as I've lived in lots of places without a shower sometimes there's no choice.

Is your dh used to a bath?

scarednoob Wed 20-Apr-16 09:44:29

No, he grew up with a shower - he just really loves a bath and the flat has a deep jacuzzi bath, so he takes advantage of it. I don't get it, it would put me to sleep!

I have a bath every other morning. The other days I wash and condition my hair, so a shower is preferable. I still manage to get DD3 to school in time perfectly well. In fact I'm just about to run myself one now (DD3 is at home with a bug), so I'm dressed when the grocery delivery arrives.

Other people can please themselves what they do.

I prefer a shower but until a couple of months ago we only had a bath.

I'm with you that baths make you sleepy, though! I couldn't have one first thing, so I always used to have a bath at night instead.

I hate having baths at any time, so I don't understand this at all.

I love showers, though.

I grew up in a house with a bath and no shower, and I thank the plumbing lord that I have not have to return to such a state.

I don't understand how people wash their hair in the bath? With dirty bath water?

Yadnbu a bath in the morning is just strange. I love a shower at night, only really take a bath to unwind every so often. Never really feel clean after one though hmm

SaucyJack Wed 20-Apr-16 09:55:46

I like a bath (don't have a shower anyway).

I don't understand how people can wash long hair properly in the shower. Or shave legs. I like to sit and take my time personally.

I use a jug and clean water to rinse hair.

VioletTea Wed 20-Apr-16 09:56:28

Meh. It's just how some people are different from others.

I prefer a shower but I also like to get up a bit earlier before work and have some "me time" to mentally prepare myself for the day, so I feel relaxed and ready to start my day, rather then rushing around and running out the door feeling stressed and disorganised.
Maybe a bath helps him feel like that too.

"I've lived in lots of places without a shower sometimes there's no choice."

Yup. First flat DH (before we married) was an old tenement, with just a bath. No combi boiler either, so DH (or DP as was) had to switch the boiler on as soon as he got up, then have breakfast while he waited for the water to heat up for his bath. Happy days. smile

Well you can buy shower hoses that go on the taps for your hair, or a jug.

People always say bath water as is dirty, but presuming you wash daily and haven't been rolling around in mud and shit, it's not that dirty.

I grew up without a shower. I was quite excited to move into a place with one only to find out that I don't really like them.

Nabootique Wed 20-Apr-16 10:18:38

Me too Biene! I thought everything would be so quick and easy once I had one but shaving legs and other bits is so awkward! Baths all the way for me, but I do prefer them at night. I will sometimes have a morning one if I have a day off and no DD (so never, really) but it feels rather decadent!

Flossyfloof Wed 20-Apr-16 10:21:41

Ah yes the old rubber shower hose. Excellent for scalding oneself or really waking oneself up, depending on which nozzle flew off.

AnUtterIdiot Wed 20-Apr-16 10:22:43

I love baths but I wouldn't want one in the morning. A decent bath takes at least an hour and it is mandatory to have a nice snooze afterwards grin

MattDillonsPants Wed 20-Apr-16 10:22:53

What do you mean "fresh" shower? The water in a bath is just as fresh as a shower and unless you're caked in cow shit, you get just as clean anyway.

NapQueen Wed 20-Apr-16 10:35:05

My friend used to "have a nice bath" when getting ready for a night out. Madness imo. After a bath I just want pj's and bed. So relaxing!

dementedpixie Wed 20-Apr-16 10:41:49

I have a bath for shaving pits and legs at the weekend. I prefer washing my hair in the shower although we have a rubber hose thing for the bath taps if I wash my hair in there
