Autumnal Colours!

It's Saturday again, I hope you all managed to get through yesterday unscathed!! I hate it when the 13th drops on a Friday, not that I'm superstitious really but the date used to freak my Nan out really bad....to the extent if she was working she would always phone in sick!! Very strange, but then she was superstitious about everything...crossed knives, walking under ladders, new shoes on the table etc! 

Anyhoos on with this weeks MTTC challenge, where this week we want to see
