Because our friends and family are scattered all over the country, we at Tribble Towers really have to plan ahead, and even then we can’t fit everybody in! Yesterday I made my now-famous (sort of) piccalilli – with a difference. … Continue reading
I am never awake at this time of the morning. Well, not usually. Sometimes I simply wake for no good reason and can’t get back to sleep again. I’ll get back on that subject in a moment. Firstly I wanted … Continue reading
Our new modem arrived this morning, so Tribble Towers is fully powered and ready to go as far as the internet is concerned. However, during the last forty-eight hours, we’ve had to stumble blindly through that unknown territory which is: … Continue reading
