Color My World

One of those fun memories,popped into my head, an image,a song and there  it stayed for the rest of the day. Maybe,it had greater meaning?

It’s a vivid and clear image of when I was younger,visiting my grandparents on their farm, I’m standing around the piano with my cousins singing while my aunty is playing the piano. I still remember the music sheet, with it’s purple cover…”Colour My World” a Petula Clark song. Do you remember it?

Oh, you can color my world with sunshine yellow each day.

Oh, you can color my world with happiness all the way

Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above!

And if you color my world just paint it with your love!

Just Color my World.

Sunshine yellow

Orange blossoms

Laughing faces


Just Color my World.


It’s fitting today as I reach another passing year, another 40 something birthday that this song and image came into my mind book of memories. It was a time, fun and happy and though many years have passed, this song funny enough how simple it is, is true again today. Color my World.

Thanks to those people around me,

My husband who supports me,and guides me and HE, Colors my world.

My family, although far away, I can ring and talk to with anything, and are supportive and loving, who Color my world.

My friends who I laugh with,cry with, and have fun with,who Color my world

… And to you, my new “blogging” friends, who over the past few months in this new adventure, of creating and sharing my world, YOU, Color my world.

Thank you everyone….Have a great day!

Love Yvette xx
