CES Challenge 58...Forever Autumn

Hey-de-ho my lovely jubbly blogging's the weekend again and I think ours will be spent clearing out the loft...we did some the other week but have lots more to do so that the aerial man can come and lay cables for our new TV aerial...blimming pigeons have bounced on the current one and broken it!

It's definitely starting to feel a bit more autumnal now...I noticed the leaves on the trees are beginning to turn such gorgeous colours and the drive into work is one I look forward to at the moment! We are heading into AUTUMN over at CES Challenges this fab and very talented teamie Karen has chosen the theme and there are some scrummy inspirational makes from my teamies so head on over for a peek for a bit of autumn deliciousness!
