Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...
My feet hardly touched the ground on Saturday, 14th December. As a long term volunteer at RAP (www.riponactivityproject.co.uk), I was delighted when a photographer from the Ripon Gazette turned up to record the scene.
After a short rest, I was out again to attend another Christmas party, this time in Wetherby and organised by Trisha and Deej of Strictly Salsa (www.strictlysalsa.co.uk). A good time was definitely had by all and we enjoyed a demo by our Intermediate dancers – now on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnCZDLSenK8 – crazy games and copious food as well as a great evening of dancing. Come and join us next year, if you dare!
On Wednesday, 18th December, Bruce and I joined a large group of our dancer friends for dinner at La Vecchia Scuola in York. It was a rather more sedate affair than the Strictly Salsa party, but the food and the company were good. Situated in Low Petergate, very close to the Minster, the Georgian building was once York College For Girls and one of our party is a former pupil. Karen was able to show us some of its features and actually found a couple of photographs of herself amongst the many on display inside the building.
