Will do but not done it yet! I think I already have one in the cistern - will need to check as it is a small modern one so uses little water.

We had an outside lavatory (as they were called then) with a wooden seat with a hole in,when we were kids and my poor brother fell in the hole one day.The men only came weekly to clean it out and they were due next day, so you can imagine what a state he was in ! :lol:

I remember being bathed in a tin bath in front of the Aga and my dad and grandad when I was five! :oops: but I think that was because the downstairs bathroom was too cold. Our bath was made of one block of green marble. It came from a big house whose contents were sold off, probably after the war.

Until I was 11, we had no indoor toilet. Our khasi was in a little house which stood on a knoll surrounded by its own little grove of trees - mostly yew and laurel - in the corner of one of our chicken runs! Dad used to have to dig a hole and empty the bucket once a week too. (We had the best show of bulbs in Spring in the area!) I remember once a wren built its nest against the lintel above the door. It was lovely to watch the bird fluttering in and out to feed the babies while you were sitting there!

The difficulty was, when you were dying for the loo and you still had to make sure the gate was shut, all the while looking over your shoulder for the vicious old cockerel, which would charge out of nowhere like a raging beast, its razor-sharp beak glinting in the sunlight, aiming straight for the back of your legs! Many were the times I did an Olympic sprint to the loo, reaching it just in time to slam the door on that wretched bird's beak!

That cockerel terrorised us, and lorded it over all the hens. Once he tried to attack mother while she was dishing up a hot mash into the trough one frosty winter's day. She threw a stone at him, not meaning to hit him, just to scare him off, but her aim was too good, and she caught him on the head. He went down like a pole-axed steer. 'Oh my goodness', she thought, 'I've killed him. He's for the pot, then! Waste not, want not!' Then, just as she reached down to pick up the unfortunate bird, he stood up and crowed!!! :lol:

Oh, you do see life down on the farm!
