Speaking of toilets, this was the toilet in the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. This hotel is world renowned, was built in the late 1800's and is called "The Castle in the Rockies". It is a fairly expensive hotel, but for that kind of money the bathrooms could have been better.
The toilet was so close to the glass shower enclosure that you had to sit sideways, That book covering the opening was 8 by 10 inches, and the toilet was so close to the sink that you had to take the toilet paper off the spindle to use it!
i wonder how it could be cleaned behind the toilet This toilet may have been appropriate for a toddler.

Yep, that was a toilet to remember. Geeze..a memorable toilet. Since it's a historic building, walls can't be knocked down to make bathrooms bigger but wow, that was really close quarters!

Dusting. As fast as you dust, more is coming down. I also hate to wash dirty pots and pans.

My least favourite household chore? Pretty much whichever one I should be doing.

Wow, that does look like kind of an uncomfortable toilet, SC and K. The shower is nice, though.

My least fave household chore is the bathrooms, and a close second is windows. I don't mind vacuuming so much since I got a new vacuum cleaner last year - I love my Shark swivel head, it's so much easier.

Munky, that looks like a great mop and bucket setup.

The shower was a nightmare waiting to happen too Cheryl. As you can see it's beautiful marble, but slick as a whistle, no rubber mat to use, and not even a single hand hold inside. The bathroom was about twice the size of the ones on the airplane. The best I can say was it was immaculately clean. The size of the bedroom was ok, but like most historic hotels, quite small by today's standards. It was just an awesome property though!
