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 [...]
Apparently four marks a bit of a milestone: it seems to be the age when birthday cakes become Something Very Exciting Indeed.
The maker though it was a kitten, but the birthday girl declared it be a mouse. Who am I to argue? The main thing is that she loved it.
The only [...]
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!

Mr TLC is not a man to be outdone. Oh no.

… but a little procrastination won’t hurt. Isn’t that what weekends are for?
Anyhoo, it must be time for a quick catch up, so here it is:
I’m now two weeks into my new job and still very happy that I’ve moved. I’m still trying to remember a great many names, getting lost/walking in circles [...]
Hello! Remember me? I’ve been exceedingly busy doing a great many things, some interesting, some not (such is life), so here’s a quick update:
I have been to Paris, which went something like this: count children onto a bus, set off, travel a bit, count children, arrive at science museum, count children, have a brilliant [...]
Mr TLC has arrived at a more interesting age.
On his last birthday, I suggested that he could spend his days carrying the good folk of Crookes to Woodhouse and back, but apparently he didn’t see himself as that kind of 52. Now he is back in his prime. (I am not currently in my [...]
An evening of impersonation for me today: time to do my best grandmother impression.
Mr TLC’s beautiful granddaughter (who really needs a blog name, Baby A just doesn’t fit her anymore) is two today. Where does the time go?
I hadn’t seen her for a while and the change was dramatic: from toddler to [...]
