I have it so good..

Let me give you a quick update before I start, trying he kitchen? It's still being put together, we just need the kitchen units fastened into place and then we can get the sink plumbed in.

For nearly two weeks now, I have had to go to the bathroom for water and boy have I complained about it. Having to wash the dishes in the bath because my dishwasher wasn't plumbed in, filling the kettle from the bathroom if I wanted a cup of coffee, I was not happy.
This morning but realised how in had been acting like a spoiled little child, full of self importance because I am a white male in the western world.

I stood, while drinking my cup of coffee and thought about how I had to walk up fifteen steps and turn in the tap to fill my kettle while there are people in some countries who have to walk mile's for their water and then walk all the way back, or drink dirty water

Talk about privileged, I'm living in the western world, in a three bedroom semi-detached house. I am lucky and I'm going to walk up stairs to fill the kettle again, without complaining.
