December 2021

December was a really fast moving month. I had my booster, I finished the first term, we went to London for a few days in holiday, and, of course, I had work and the celebrations. I will share a few highlights from December. With limited time I couldn’t post about all the exciting places we’ve […]

Prison Museum

Ripon museums

There are three museums in Ripon and I will share pictures from all of them. The Ripon museums are the Workhouse, the Prison, and the Courtroom.
