Do you have a favourite colour? I do or at least I did. What I mean is that I have recently revised my view of what my favourite colour actually is. My knee jerk reaction used to be to say that green was my most-loved colour. My preference had absolutely nothing to do with green being the de facto national colour in this Emerald Isle. No, the real reason that I like green so well has all to do with the fact that most of its forty shades work well with my pale Celtic skin.
