Jenny does not like to see water being wasted (underutilised). So beat this:-
1. My feet are cold. I fill a basin with hot water and thaw out my feet.
2. I use the water to wash the cat bowls (my feet were cold, not dirty)
3. I soak my work-shirt.
4. I add a Milton tablet and soak the shower seal – without shirt in.
5. I use the water to flush a toilet.

I could have used rainwater from our collection system and heated it on the stove but the stove wasn’t on.

On a more practical note, we have a rainwater collection system leading from the greenhouse roof, to a water-barrel, and then to 3 large tubs. This is a smaller version of what is at the garage and workshop, where the collection sequence is reminiscent of “Mousetrap – by Ideal Toys”.
Last year, 3 tubs were almost drained because they are used to water the veg garden, so I’m adding another two; who knows what this year’s weather will be like.🐱❤️🐾
