I just love yellow. I especially have a soft spot for mustard yellow- I'm sure there'll be another post dedicated to that. What colours do you all love?

'The ignorance circulating around the sad loss of Robin Williams has brought a still, sadly, taboo subject of depression to the forefront of our minds. Comments like "What does he have to be depressed about?" shock and appal me from people that I'd have judged higher than that. Inspired by this and my darling Pete Marsh's forthcoming and eloquent admission of his own depression, I choose to do the same. Depression is an foe that I've been at battle with for a number of years.
The statistics tell us that one in three of us will face some kind of mental illness in our lives, that you would expect a more understanding and caring world by now. Sadly, illnesses with sometimes little or no physical symptoms can be ignored or even doubted and I myself, still today, in a good spell, get judged and labelled as 'mental'. Mental illness to me, is like shadow, casting doubt on your confidence, self belief and yes, at times- sanity. In my opinion strength in measured in many ways and Robin Williams, a man who candidly spoke of his battle with depression, lost the strength to continue the fight. For this, we shouldn't judge in our glass houses; simply remember a beloved icon and maybe take the time to learn a little more.'

|"Just chilling out in your tea tray even though it's practically vertical and my claws are falling out, trying to hold on..."|
|"Just gonna climb over these shoes guys, to get to...Oh wait..."|
|"Just gonna look out the window with this curtain over me."|
|"Oh hey guys! Just here to supervise your toilet visits. Thinking of unrolling some of this toilet paper ok?"|
|"Hey guys! Just gonna sit with my face on this table leg and hold it still for you."|
