It was just a casual Sunday afternoon BBQ in the backyard with our neighbours and friends from my school days. Gloria and I went to primary and high school together and have stayed close friends for at least 20 years. Her husband Steven had left his job with the government about 6 years ago to start his own business. I think it was a drop shipping warehouse or something like that. Gloria worked in the enterprise as well. They had a son and a daughter who were almost the same age as our two, so they shared a lot of interests with music and movies as well as school subjects.

If you aren’t making any changes to your bathroom, it only makes sense to choose a bath lift instead of a walk-in tub. After all, a bath-lift can be fitted around your current bathtub, while installing a walk-in tub means ripping out and replacing the old one.
