Draining The Last Drops

Just a touch of the glums today, with nagging thoughts of this being our last full day in England. Time was taken up with organising some things like laundry, a final wash of the bikes and then padding them up and packing them into their boxes for their journey. We also did a trial run into the...

Murder And Mystery Monday

  The small man entered the room, a dapper gentleman, even dandy one could say. He surveyed the sunlit room, assessing the seating options before selecting a straight backed, wooden chair that would allow him to avoid the bright light streaming through the window. He pulled a crisp, white handkerchief from his breast pocket, unfolded... Continue Reading →

Go Slow Sunday Lives On

And so the finals begin [insert sad sigh here]. Our final Sunday. To mark the occasion, we might as well resurrect that grand tradition that we enjoyed so much…Go Slow Sunday. It so happened it was a good day for it, being another one of heavy rain and temperatures well towards the bottom of the... Continue Reading →

Exploring Page And Screen

A bit of rain about, so let’s leave the roaming of Oxford and take a trip through the countryside today. Through Oxfordshire we hurtled and arrived in the charming little village of Thame. Apart from being lovely, this little town has a claim to fame of having Midsomer Murders filmed there. Yep, we’re on the... Continue Reading →

When Oxford Became A Village

Jerk…shudder…grumble…jerk…jerk…shudder… The van wasn’t happy. It protested most forcefully at being asked to move in the cold, very cold, morning that we had. It grumbled and shuddered and jerked and told us, in no uncertain terms, that it was most displeased with the mere one degree temperature it was being asked to perform in. It... Continue Reading →

Steve Exercises His Counting Finger

Steve raised one finger…1…then another…2…then a third… “Yep, I still love it!” I declared, before he could get to “3”. We were back in some magical places with gorgeous scenery and charming villages and my declarations of love for England of Britain the Great, continued. We took off from Birmingham and decided on a route... Continue Reading →

A Ripper Rainy Reunion

What a wonderful day. What a special day. The sort of day you’re looking forward to and feel excited about from the get go. Today we were meeting up with my boss and her husband. I say, “my boss” but Terese is so much more than that…friend, amazing support and just an all round wonderful,... Continue Reading →

A Sad Day

It was a late night last night. Steve and I sat up, with a book, a website, a pen and notepaper, and talked and theorised and drew diagrams, trying upon trying to work out how an Enigma machine worked! “I think it’s doing this…” “But how is that circuit scrambled…?” “Is it like this…?” On...

My Brain Hurts!

An early morning trip to the gym for a run and I had the whole place to myself. Bonus. An hour of plodding with a podcast and then back to see if Steve had departed the Land of Nod. With all members of the Tassie Tourers now awake and ready for action, we set off... Continue Reading →
