Actually, "first-time blogger" isn't really accurate; in fact, quite a while before blogging was a "thing", I published what today would be described as a blog. When I lived in Japan, 1999-2001, I kept an online diary of my time there. It was all done in basic HTML - if such things as blogging platforms existed back then then I wasn't aware of them - and can still be found at www.tanuki.org.uk, although not all of the photos are still there.
Anyway, life has moved on since the last update on that site (published in 2009). Still happily married to Craig but we now have Xander (7) as well as Freya. Still living in Hall Green but now in a different house. Still teaching Maths but now striking out on my own rather than being employed by a school or college. It will be nice to be able to focus on the teaching and not worry about crowd control! I'm carrying on a family tradition really; my mum did maths tuition at home for many years. I remember, as a small child, frequently being urged to be quiet because Mummy was "chootering"!
I'm not expecting to be a frequent blogger but I'll post occasional updates, mostly Maths-related.
