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 →

In The Footsteps Of Heroes

Into the rain we go, hi-ho, hi-ho! Still not cold, but very much a wet one today. We loaded up the van and took off, heading west again as we continue to criss-cross the country. We passed through Bury St. Edmunds to have a look and it was another lovely town. I love places that... Continue Reading →

Boxing Day Bargains

No, we didn’t hit the Boxing Day sales. No retail frenzy for us. No need to sharpen the elbows and forge our way through the shoppers who suffer from a temporary loss of sanity and can’t walk past the half price Foot Spa or Karaoke machine with bonus built in Neil Diamond medley. No, the... Continue Reading →

T’was The First English Christmas

T’was the morning of Christmas And all through the house Not a  creature did stir But Steve’s insomniac spouse.   She waited downstairs With tea and the clock Listening for the patter Of the Big Fella’s socks The tree stood brightly Under the stairs Waiting to divulge The Sainsbury’s finds that lay there The Big...

Stop The Car, I Need My Sunglasses!

A final inspection of Norwich before continuing on our way. St. Andrew’s and Blackfriar’s Hall date from the 1200’s and were used by the Dominican Blackfriars. After 1565 they were used by the Flemish refugees who came to Norwich to work in the textile industry and they held their last service there in 1929. Then... Continue Reading →

Nice One Norwich

A day to roam around Norwich. We don’t much fancy cities as a rule, but we’ve had a couple of gems lately. Lincoln was lovely and now Norwich delivered too. A charming, historic city, with hidden lanes, cobbled streets and beautiful buildings that haven’t changed for centuries. We started our meanderings on Elm Hill, a... Continue Reading →

Turn Left At Memory Lane

We left Lincoln for the second time this trip, having found it a lovely place to visit on both occasions. As we rolled out of town, we stopped off at Waitrose supermarket for some travel supplies. I love Waitrose. It’s the sort of supermarket I like to go to every now and again when we... Continue Reading →
