Witley Court, Worcestershire

At the time I was compiling my countdown to Christmas post at Vision and Verb, I mentioned some of the reasons why Britain should be proud of events that took place there in 2012.

In that post I didn’t mention I thought that 2012, despite one or two memorable occasions (such as meeting Ginnie and Astrid along with fellow Shutterchancers and my visit to Carcassonne), seemed rather a flat year for me; I felt it had been a bit of a non-year in which I hadn’t done very much.

Whilst creating a calendar for Mr C to hang on his office wall (which is something I have done for a number of years), I was surprised to find that I had been out and about far more than I had realised:

Kent, Attingham Park (x4), Ironbridge Gorge, London, Powis Castle, Blists Hill (x2 including Ginnie, Astrid and Shutterchancers), Daniels Mill, Dudmaston Hall, Much Wenlock, Museum of Steel Sculpture, Witley Court, Witley Parish Church, Carcassonne, Shugborough Hall, Cosford Museum, Erddig, Hack Green, Museum of Iron, National Heritage Motor Museum, Compton Verney, Westonbury Mill Water Gardens, Berrington Hall, Paris and Arley Arboretum.

This revelation didn’t include some of the other things that have gone on in my life this year:

A new kitchen, the en-suite replacement, a 50th birthday party, industrial action, the Dojo seminar, an 18th birthday party and the four occasions that someone allowed themselves to become homeless and expected immediate help out of the situation.

Upon reflection I have had a busy 2012…

The photos I have included in the calendar were taken in the relevant months in 2012. I have created a mosaic of those pictures although I have changed one photo because it showed a person whom I replaced with a picture from the place that we visited on that day (St Pauls).   The picture at the top of the post is the one that I used for the cover of the calendar.

If you click on the mosaic it will take you to Flickr which gives the links to click to view all of the pictures enlarged. I hope you enjoy the pictorial representation of my 2012. I wonder what 2013 will bring…
