Mellow Yellow

I'm painting the bathroom. The colour is "lemon zest" and it spreads with the consistency of runny yoghurt. I can almost smell the citrus.

There are lots of things I like about winter, but mornings like this are not one of them. I woke at 8.30- out of mud-coloured dreams a whisker away from nightmare- and it was still dark. I opened the curtains and the world was pewter and everything dripped.

Yellow, yellow, yellow. Lemons, sunflowers, dandelions, fields of oil seed rape.
