4/52 Finding inner peace

I have a  Kliban cat calendar, I love Kliban's cats. Find out more about the artist here and here.
This image was taken with my new (well, used, but new to me!) iPhone and manipulated using an app called TiltShiftGen. Some iPhone users have iPhone 365s running... tempting, but no, I have other things I must do!

3/52 Tea and cake

Just what you need after a stroll in the park, and playing on the swings, a generous slice of chocolate cake and a cuppa. Perfect. Cold though, sitting on the terrace... but then again, it is January!

2/52 My door is always open

Despite continuing wintry conditions, I travel to St Oswald's Hosital, Ashbourne, a couple of times a week to visit my friend Shelley. She's recovering from a stoke and making great progress - coming on in leaps and bounds even. We have been exploring the hospital building and taking pictures. This is the door to the Staff Nurse/Ward Sister's office on Shell's ward.

1/52 Snow bough

We have had quite a lot of snow. We're not accustomed to it, its an unusual event for most of England, so we are not geared up to cope with it - roads are closed, grit supplies run low, schools close, public transport is affected, flights are cancelled. Last year my son had a fabulous time sledging and having snowball fights on his first snow day when the school closed. I was thrilled for him in case it was his only chance to make those childhood memories - we seemed to have snow like this every year when I was growing up. And here we are again, though his school has not closed and he is not so thrilled!
