My pink phase

These days, I notice that the colour pink is becoming increasingly attractive to me. I find myself searching in stationery shops for pink pens, my small handbag diary is, unbelievably, sparkly pink and yesterday, I noticed this pink rainhat and found myself thinking that it would probably be very useful for walking Paddy on rainy days  (for me to wear, not him!).
"I'm in my pink phase," I explained to friends recently when I fished out my pink diary to jot down our next lunch date. No comment was made, but did I imagine the slightly raised eyebrows?
Perhaps I missed out on this aspect of my early teenage years. Let's face it, it's quite a while ago, too long to remember.
Or maybe - and this is a lot more worrying - maybe, I am getting a little too close to my purple phase!

Have you read 'I shall wear purple'? very funny and pink is only a lighter shade of it lol xx

John Gray said...

you are a bit young for purple and people shouting!......just xlol

Murphyfish said...

I'll go along with Mr. Gray Jennyta, far too young for the purple rinse ;-)

Jennyta said...

I have read it, Sage and I've always liked it.
John G, thank you, kind sir. :)
John M, there is no way I shall ever be tempted to have a purple rinse! Purple streaks - well, maybe. ;)

I thought you liked your blue rinse too much....just think - you could be the next Mrs Slocombe!!! x

Jennyta said...

It's Mother's Day. Other people get cards and flowers. I get insults! ;)

Ah pink - my favourite colour. In fact I will be wearing pink today - taking MIL out foor lunch - mmmm getting hungry!

Rae said...

I was a tomboy in my younger years and started my pink phase a few years ago (it's still going on!) - I think what we miss out on in our early life we put back in later on. Glad I got most of my excesses out of the way years ago!

Pink is a great color for things you tend to misplace when you get older. Especially bright pink. Bright yellow works, too.

Jennyta said...

Hope you enjoyed your lunch, mrsnesbitt.
Rae, I was very good in my younger years - which doesn't bode well! ;)
Jan, you are right. Knew there was a reason behind this! :)
