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 [...]
1. I’m on holiday – woohoo! Actually I’ve been on holiday for a little while – school broke up last Thursday – but I have been hiding under a duvet and sleeping. As you do.2. I have caught, fought and mostly got rid of the traditional Christmas holiday cold. Go me. (Yes, that’s why I [...]
15:44 Contemplating dinner. Not sure if I can face another chilli based meal. Have been eating it since Friday, still a lot to go… #
Actually, I was wrong, we’ve been eating chilli since Thursday. Chilli and rice, enchiladas, chilli and mash, chilli and chilli. Chilli for lunch, chilli for dinner. I like chilli, [...]
It’s not been a bad day, there have been many good points. But it appears that I have not exactly been on the case: I arrive at school and discover that I am wearing dark blue striped trousers and a black jacket. This is not exactly what I had in mind.(Mind you, it’s nothing compared [...]

Last month Neil kept us all entertained with a rather splendid top 5 meme. My favourite was undoubtedly his Top 5 under appreciated things about Sheffield.
“The things that I’m going to pick are certainly appreciated by at least some people in Sheffield, but maybe not further afield. I’ve also picked some things that I [...]
Helly was debating how many pairs of shoes she owned the other day. Answer: 67. Wow. Go Helly!
Now I knew my total was a lot less than that, simply because I couldn’t possibly fit 67 pairs of shoes in the rather small Victorian closet that holds most of my apparel.
Mr TLC and I [...]
Five reasons why today could have been a really bad one:
1. For me, there’s only one thing that always triggers asthma symptoms. Fireworks. To say that Bonfire Night is not my favourite day of the year would be a major understatement.
2. Several days of being wrapped in fog/cloud/smog isn’t helping matters. A nice [...]
Five random things that have happened since I started blogging:1. I have outed myself.
Strange but true. I decided that since I sometimes write about school, the best thing was to just tell the headteacher what I was doing. So I went to see him and outed myself as a not-particularly-anonymous Blogger (frankly, anyone who [...]
