Lying in a big bath is one of the simple pleasures in life

Surely, holding a door open for a member of either sex is just good manners?

LESLEY KEATING: Would you dare hold a door open for a woman?

Have your say

It’s the simple pleasures in life that I enjoy the most. Like last weekend when we took my best friend, Graham, to the Hotel Du Vin in Winchester to celebrate his 40th birthday.

I know he didn’t want much of a fuss, but when your best friend reaches an age milestone, you have to celebrate!

For me, it wasn’t the fabulous food, beautiful Medoc wines or the after-dinner brandy that I enjoyed most.

Nor was it seeing what we believed to be the back of Hollywood star Hugh Jackman in the hotel.

No, for me the best bit was the large bath in our room.

Finally I could wallow about and immerse myself, unlike the bath at home that makes me look like I’m in a straitjacket.
