an antidote to grey
On grey, dreich days like today is here, it is easy to feel literally ‘under the weather’. Morose and negative, in need of a duvet day. Bright colour is what is lacking in the outside world: luckily, I have a few bright spots of it in my kitchen to help to cheer me up. If you, too, are in need of some colour therapy, perhaps these will help just a little…
A wee pot of primulas from the village shop: subtle they are not. I bought the most garishly pink ones I could find.
A tin of toffees from my kind sister-in-law, in a wonderfully old-fashioned tin. (Just as well I like the tin, as the contents are all going into the tummies of my little boys!)
And some primary colours on the window-sill: little tête–à-tête daffodils flowering in a favourite blue jug, next to a couple of local finds.
Here’s hoping for sunny skies for the end of the week.
