Looking at the swatches of colour in her hand Charlotte spread them out like she was playing colour poker. She didn’t realise there were so many shades of blue; turquoise, navy, sky, royal, baby and nautical.

She opened the tiny, plastic tins and painted each on the wall.

Her little girl’s first bedroom, and it would have to be her choice. Alongside her blue, there were other colours. Pink, red, yellow, or green.

‘I would like that colour,’ Maisy said.

‘Nautical Blue?’

‘Ooh yes! and can you paint it like the sea, with ships, and pirates too.’

‘Of course I can,’ she said, finding a use for all the other colours in one instant.
