A Merry Ripon Christmas!
A very Merry Ripon Christmas to everyone out there, whoost so-ever you may be (to borrow Alan’s language). Indeed, a very merry Ripon Christmas to you all.
What is Christmas all about?
What is Christmas all about? It’s about the birth of the baby Jesus of course. But it’s also about a load of other stuff and if you don’t go to church much, there are a whole load of other reasons why it’s still the best time of the year!
Family. Staying healthy, and looking after those who are not so fortunate. That’s what Christmas is about – and there is nothing better than a happy Christmas story!
Going to church, seeing your neighbours and exchanging gifts with the ones you love – everyone in our house got a new electric toothbrush – except me, and I lost mine to boot, finding it in Salford only on the day before Christmas Eve. Woop!
It’s also about spending some quality time at home, in front of the fire, with a satsuma, some walnuts and a tonne of thornton’s continental chocolates.
It’s also about stuffing as much food in as is absolutely possible in 48 hours
….until the shops are open again!
And then it’s about sitting back and relaxing, looking after those that need some TLC.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and I look forward to being more creative with my blog photographs in 2016 – perhaps I may even get a 28mm lens that enables me to open things up a bit more….
