Nice Bathrooms – Random Post

I just had a nightmare train journey home thanks to #stormdoris but I also had a lovely, random, conversation with another passenger.
For some reason, the topic of bathrooms kept coming up in the conversation, and I realised that I apparently have a bit of an obsession with them.

So, here are some of the best bathrooms I’ve seen in the past few years, in no particular order. 

Virgin trains have the best train bathrooms. They’re usually clean, the doors always work and they have a really funny announcement advising you of the things you shouldn’t flush – such as nappies and ex-boyfriends jumpers.

In the beginning of my relationship with my husband, we spent a lot of date nights in our local Frankie and Benny’s restaurant. The decor wasn’t all that great, but they had a “how to speak Italian” CD playing constantly in the ladies loo.  I found it hilarious, and informative.

The Old Sparrowhawk in Fence has the best ladies bathroom. It has a massive window with views of Pendle, comfy chaise longues, a beautiful chandelier and lovely toiletries 

The best loos without a doubt are at a cafe in Lymm  (Cheshire). 

This cafe (The Terrace) serves the best hot chocolate – in a cup the size of your head- but the loos are the piece de resistance. Yeah, that sounds weird. 

The owners commissioned some wallpaper from a local designer. It looks like generic, but beautiful, gilt embossed burgundy wallpaper. It has beautiful flowers all over it, and you think nothing of it… then you notice the figures, and the animals, and you realise that they’re… busy? A great test to see how observant your friends and family are. We used to love taking people there for a hot chocolate, and seeing if they noticed.  It took my mum 4 trips to realise, and then she was in hysterics. 

So there you have it. Quite a random topic, but it’s been one of those days.
