My problem is ...

No, I'll amend that. (Actually my immediate problem is that someone - probably me - has pushed my keyboard further back on my desk and I am struggling to reach it. Remedy: bring it forward. If only life - and decorating - were that simple.) One of my problems is that I am a sucker for a neat turn of phrase.


Daughter is a copywriter and thus one of that band of people who contribute to making my life difficult.


If I had to look at a paint chart and choose it would be relatively simple; because I allow myself to read the colour names I am drawn into the web of deliciousness promised by Summer Pudding and Winterbloom. How can I resist Cuban Heat or Happy Daze? Gentle Yellow, Fairy Dust and a Whisper of Snowfall all beckon me in. As for Sunday Best, Biscotti and Rice Pudding ...


I had more or less chosen my colour scheme when the opportunity to recreate French country living with chamomile yellow, truffle and linen shades was offered to me. Oh dear ...

And I thought there was a theme to my colour choosing, leslie!
