The Festive Season Continues


The challenge for this year’s Ripon Writers’ Group’s Christmas Event (about which there is a great deal more on www.riponwriters.co.uk) was to write a seasonal limerick. This is mine and it expresses a deeply heartfelt wish!

A writer who hangs up her stocking
Hopes that luck will soon come a-knocking.
A self published best seller
Would put wine in the cellar
And bring agents and publishers flocking.

Thursday saw the Ripon U3A Spanish (of which I’m a member) and Book groups getting together over a leisurely Christmas lunch at The Old Deanery and very pleasant it was too. An unexpected bonus was the sound of carols being sung across the road at Ripon Cathedral. No photographs, unfortunately, but a very convivial atmosphere.
