Genetics are strange and unpredictable things. When I became pregnant I had no idea that my maternal family was subject to brain disorders that struck each generation. I didn’t know that my great-grandmother had been epileptic and everybody thought that … Continue reading
For us it does, anyway; Tribble Towers has a lot to do. Tomorrow we are travelling to my hometown of Cheltenham for a weekend: This is part of the town centre. It is a really beautiful place, but I don’t … Continue reading
