Well, it’s not quite the clutter-free space it should be but this is the view from my utility room where, this morning, as every Sunday morning, I tackled the second tranche of ironing of the week, whilst listening to #TheArchers omnibus.

I liked the sun beyond the doors but I also liked the orange things that I have scattered around my blue and grey kitchen to provide a contrast.

The kitchen roll holder, the box for all the wires and the bin are all Wesco from Germany but that Kik-step had to be ordered especially from Cramer in America. I wanted an orange one, you see, and the UK company makes only black, white, red and blue. These things are important.

I’ve always been a fan of orange. It’s deeply unsophisticated as colours go, but it’s so cheery.
