Just a Few of My Favourite Things for MAWTT

 Good morning. Hope you are all well today. We have a lovely bright start to the day here in Gloucestershire and this is the first day the Simpson household has got back to a 'normal' routine since I had my minor OP for Carpel Tunnel Release - DH has gone back to work (actually gone to the office as opposed to working from home) and I have been able to take Jack to school - although it will be easier I'm sure when the stitches actually come out on Monday :-)
Anyways as it's Thursday that means we have a brand new challenge theme for you over at
and this week it has been picked by my lovely teamie Laurie AKA Designer Diva
