Unusually, we have His & Hers loos in the Vicarage. Not quite his & hers like the ones in America but they are literally next to each other with separate doors so I decided to start using them as His & Hers.
Unfortunately, the flushing system in Hers is malfunctioning so I had no choice but to turn off the water and stop using it. Vicarages are usually the responsibility of the individual Diocese so we have reported the fault to the housing department and they have very kindly arranged a Diocesan approved plumber to come in tomorrow.
In the meantime, I was murmuring to myself the other day how inconvenient it is to use His now that Hers is out of order. It was then that I realised how privileged I am to have an inside loo with running water whereas so many millions in the world still have to travel such great distance to just collect water in very poor sanitation conditions. How dare I murmur when we have THREE loos in the Vicarage? I am so ashamed of myself. The human heart is so sinful!
