Clean and Simple at MAWTT

Good morning.
Not sure what the weather is going to do today - one minute it's beautiful sunshine and the next it's as black as a witch's hat. I'd settle for somewhere in between - just not rain - please :o)

Anyways I guess whatever it will be it will be a good excuse to stay indoors and have a little play - I'm hoping some of my new stash I bought with my birthday money might arrive with Mr Postie this morning - fingers crossed :o)
