MissM is not amused

MissM has expressed disappointment at the choice of colour for the new bathroom towels. MrsM has chosen Spruce instead of Sunshine (now discontinued). MissM knows what she likes and Spruce is not it. MissM does not feel that Spruce towels create the right ambience in the bathroom.

MrsM secretly agrees with MissM.

MrsM asks MrM what he thinks of the new bathroom towels. MrM has not noticed aforementioned towels and is embarrassed. He attempts to cover this faux pas by asking MissM what she would prefer

MissM
Terracotta
MrM
I don't think it would be very absorbent

MissM is not amused. In the ensuing family scene MrsM realises that Terracotta towels will feature in her future capital expenditure.

Towel colour is very important. Especially when you get home and discover said towels look yuk in one's bathroom.

(By the way, lovely alice, this is my last comment as Alice [that does sound rather strange, does it not?] and my old website will be 404ed in a few days. Do not be alarmed at an anonymous stalker! :) )

alice down the rabbit hole

I am partial to spruce. Hee Hee.
Terricota is pretty too. My towels are tropical sea blue.

You absolutely have to budget for terracotta towels!

How was the first day in the new job?

We just have boring cream. But then the walls are peachy/terracotta - not my choice but there's nothing actually wrong with them, and so much wrong with other rooms that they're low on the decorating list.

We intended to paint our living room terracotta when we moved in; unfortunately we did the test patches and initial coat in rather dim light and realised the next day that in fact they were bright orange. I won't admit how long they stayed that way ...

Personally, I like my towels white. This means that they have to be replaced regularly much to Mr Marmadaisy's chagrin. They should not be used for guests who wear fake tan though.
