Company, relief and 1000 years ago.

1. No swimming -- now I'm ill. I put out a cry for company early in the morning: meet us for coffee, please! The call is answered, and Jane braves my cold and joins us for a coffee.

2. Nick comes home early and takes over bath time.

3. I settle into a bath myself -- with the lovely Sei Shōnagon and her pillow book. I float off into a refined world of whispering paper screens and dim light and prescribed colour combinations.
