When I read Emma's post about cheering ourselves though the dark months with a colourful little project, I knew joining in would be pleasureable.
Today, I feel it doubly. Because the clocks have changed and even by 4 o'clock the light had flattened out, leaving everything slightly muted. Which is how winter always seems, to me.
Sometimes, it feels right to embrace that - to hunker down and be content with the glow of candles and tungsten light (but never low energy bulbs, which I will loathe until my final breath).
But some days, winter and it's flat greyness makes me want to scream and on those days, perhaps a blast of colour is just the ticket.
Emma's got all the details if you feel like joining in too.
