Happy Birthday Keeps Me Out Of Mischief!

Really this post needs a picture of a cake with eight candles as, on this day, back in 2011 I was setting up this blog.  It was the result of a new years resolution and allowed me to experiment before I set one up for the school that I was working in at the time. Two jobs later and this little blog is still here, along with Facebook and Instagram accounts.

A few years ago I did another Happy Birthday blog post and I thought it might be fun to do another. I love a statistic – you can take the maths teacher out of the classroom but you can’t take the maths out of the teacher!

These lists may be a little dull but they fill me with a combination of joy and pride. Who would’ve thought that I’d reach so many people from my little desk in Derby!

I’ve been thinking about how I can develop this blog, stay tuned for some exciting news next week!
