Big difference between *having* and *going* for a bath! *Having* a bath to me is the quickie, with the sole purpose of getting clean, in and out in a short space of time and on to the next thing, usually late at night, after a hard day in the garden or similar. However, *going* for a bath implies "I may be some time......", and usually involves one, some or possibly all, of the following - something to read, glass of wine/whisky, bubbles, fresh herbs, music, candles........... Ultimate decadence is a hot bath on a rainy May afternoon - so hot that you need to open the window wide to let the steam out, then being able to hear the drumming of the rain on roof and leaf, the birds singing and the general hubbub of the house below you, as you take your time and drink in the peace and calm.
Definitely one of my favourite "me" times :)
