I may wear drab colours all the time ('they're earth tones, and she looks very nice,' said Mr BC gallantly, but my Granny didn't hear him), but that doesn't mean I don't like really bright colours.
If I had a car, for example, I would like a sky-blue Capri with pillar-box red leather seats.

Anyway, enough of that, the sun is shining, I'm wearing a drab-coloured dress, taupe-coloured trainers and a drab-coloured jacket, and I've got a train to catch to Truro...
