What do colours mean to you?

What Do Colours Mean To You?

I was eager to have a go at this after first reading it here: Baby Genie: What Do Colours Mean To You, a meme. Via Twitter I read responses from other bloggers and was interested by the different range of answers and meanings.

Instructions: Copy the following five colours to you blog post and add what they mean to you. It could be a word, it could be a more detailed description. The important thing is not to think too hard about it.

White: Probably predictable but clean and pure. Also milk, random it may seem but milk played a huge part in my life, literally. I breastfed my son for 18 months, for the first 6 months at least my milk supply was crazy. You could see exactly where I had been sitting and which objects were near me when I was feeding due to them also being sprayed with milk. Oops!
Today though white has a different meaning to me. Sudocrem. Long and funny story which deserves its own blog post but I’m pretty sure other parents can guess how the story goes!

Brown: Poo. There, I said it. Not that I have an obsession with the stuff, but it plays a pretty big part in my life due to having a toddler in nappies.
It also happens to be one of my favourite colours (with blue being my main favourite colour) and is the colour scheme for our lounge.


Purple: The embroidery on my wedding dress and Charles' Christening outfit due to his outfit being made out of the shawl which matched my wedding dress. Purple was the colour scheme at our wedding.
The colour of the curtains which I do not like in our bedroom and the colour which our bedroom was when we first moved in.


Orange: Tropical, makes me think of all things exotic. It also reminds me off my bedroom 10 years ago (ok now I feel old!!) two orange walls and two yellow walls, with the addition of leopard print and tiger print! I was 15 at the time and all of the above were very “in” at the time.

Yellow: My beakers. Yes I am 25 and I prefer to drink out of plastic beakers rather than glasses. When I say plastic beakers I do not mean the type that I could give to my son to drink his juice from. I mean the kind of plastic cup which you would take to a picnic or camping etc.
Sunflowers and Daffodils, two of my favourite flowers.
