Yep, I confess to still having baths despite the fact that I know them to be a dreadful waste of water. I didn't just hobble to the bath after my bed-falling escapade, I admit that I do quite often jump in the bath. I have managed to ease my conscience a little by ensuring that it is never a solo experience. I only ever share with the Monkey Boys in their evening bath. I have to fight them for leg space and fight their lego figurines for elbow space but I still enjoy it. I've eased my conscience a little more by getting Monkey Man to organise a grey water system. It took us a while to figure out a strong enough pump but now we have one that we simply pop in the water at the end and hook up to the hose out the bathroom window and onto our garden. It did wonders a couple of Summers ago for our fruit trees. If you're thinking of doing the same a warning that it's not recommended to put grey water onto veggies and herbs. And you do need to be careful about what you wash with when you use grey water. We use this.

So if you like to read about self-sufficiency, I recommend you take a look at this magazine. Because although you can find this stuff on blogs, you can't take a blog to the bath.
