Closer to God

London 2021 #6

Back in 1986 Tim & I went to a service at St Paul's Cathedral to celebrate the 450th anniversary of our school. As Nick wasn't able to go, we were able to sit under the dome, as we had 2 ex-students with 20 years of attendance. I do remember one of the questions was ... where will you be at the 500th?

Anyway, St Paul's was one of the places I visited when I was in London ... here is a small sample of that amazing Church, which is stunning, but also very much a working Church.

As I went on a free guided tour I got to see a couple of places that are normally closed - so well worth doing if you ever get a chance to visit.

Monday Madness

... But at least I finished work early, so afetr a hectic clinic I got home early.  Actually our patients were OK, but those in a related clinic were very "needy", so it was fairly full-on.

So I've had a walk, posted some photos and now realise that I need to get a set of icons finished ASAP as they need to be posted in the next couple of days ... but before I open up the graphics programme ...

20 Star Trek Voyager Icons

YAY - I have managed to get this set done ... although there are only a few I am 100% happy with, but as life is getting away from me I am going to post the set. They are for Round 32 of monthlyinspo with the theme being Robust Red

Over the last few weeks I have re-watched Star Trek Voyager season 3 so these icons are made from that season -
