Mustard - which just reminds me of the first few months of bf poo nappies!

Caramel - very liquid diarrhoea colour. Like a holiday upset tummy.

Taupe - post barium meal poo. Very pale and creamy.

Earth - normal poo colour. Brown. Just plain brown.

Mocha - very dark, a post red wine binge poo.

Coffee - a slightly darker than normal poo. Post lentils.

Mustard - curry poo.

Chocolate - two days after the barium meal when things are getting back to normal.

Olive melange - when you drink too much red wine but also have something with spinach in it, like ravioli. Next morning you have a very interesting colour. Olive melange.

"Ochre" = BF poo

Dusky lime = teething poo

OMG you are so right!!

I described the rust colour to a friend as dogs diarroeh (sorry for VERY poor spelling.... no excuses really).

I think ALL the colours this autumn are, er, shite.......

On a recent shop did also see some flashes of bright fuschia and turquoise??

Fashionistas, are these brighter colours still "on trend"??

I saw the thread of this title and just knew it would be all the colours for a 'classic autumn', i.e. me.

Various shades of shite - we really do get the fuzzy end of the lollipop, colours-wise...

I do not give a toss whether the shit colour spectrum is bang on trend, I refuse to be swayed. Hated mustard and rust last time.
