I’m quite good at time travel. It’s easy, as long as you only want to go forwards
Now that I’m working on the final module of my MEd, I found myself wondering what advice I would offer myself if I could travel back to the start.
1. Nothing is more important than sleep and [...]
It’s been an eventful year – but I’m sure that’s true for everyone. Despite the normal good intentions, I’ve barely posted, so here’s a quick catch up on the big events:
Mr TLC was declared recovered and discharged from the hospital back in March. We celebrated by buying Mr TLC a new bike. His return [...]
Picture the scene: a real ale pub on the night that a convention/festival of morris dancers was in town. Those of us who thought we had the night off had received frantic phone calls and emergency taxis to get us to work. It was quite busy. Actually, it was insane, but in a cheerily joyous [...]
It’s not only the Queen who gets two birthdays, apparently very excited four year olds can do that too. Last weekend was the family do, with a kitten cake that turned out to be a mouse. This weekend a princess-themed children’s party had been planned. A princess theme? Blimey, I didn’t realise Granddaughter Mr [...]
Apparently four marks a bit of a milestone: it seems to be the age when birthday cakes become Something Very Exciting Indeed.

Last night’s Sharrow Lantern Carnival was a magical evening. The lanterns were created by local people in a series of workshops during February and March leading up to the big event.
Everyone gathered at Mount Pleasant Park and waited for the Sheffield Samba Band to lead the procession.

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
It seems such a short lifetime ago that I blogged on my teachery site about how good it was to get back to normal. Remind me, what exactly is normal anyway?
We started the half term [...]
It’s seemed like a long time, but finally, the end is in sight.
Back in June, when his well and truly broken leg was pinned together, Mr TLC was told it would be 4-6 months before the frame could be removed – assuming everything went well. He had five months fixed in his head, I [...]
Mr TLC starts to get mobile, including walking from the kitchen to the living room using only one crutch. Result. This momentous step forward marks Mr TLC’s return to being a maker of copious cups of tea.
Mr TLC’s latest x-ray shows signs of the bones starting to heal. Woohoo!
I conquer the paper mountain [...]
