The Daily Bath…more from Mrs Frank Skinner

The temperature is climbing here in Càlig so we are staying put for the time being.

We started the day with a bike ride in to Càlig to pick up baguettes and some lovely jam filled pastries for a picnic from the Panaderia (spanish for shop full of melt in the mouth bread and loads of unhealthy sweet cakes, biscuits and stuff).

We then set off with Chris and Jenny, two friends we met in Benicarlo, for another bike ride through the oranges and a picnic in the olive groves.

As my contribution to International Women’s Day (2 days ago), I have appended to today’s post another excerpt from Mrs Frank Skinners excellent pamphlet ‘How to Manage a Home…Hints to Girls about to Marry’. Published in the early 1900’s, (price 1 penny) I am sure the advice is as sensible now as it was then. Not all the content is completely applicable to motorhomers and we have skipped, for example, the section on blackleading the grates. It is now a bit late for Nia to benefit from reading the paragraph entitled ‘The Kind of Man to Marry’ (which is thoughtfully placed in the early pages). But there is much of value….
