Hi Peeps!

It’s been a long while since I’ve had the time to get on here and do anything meaningful!


What a busy three months.

where to begin… Well let’s start with the most important thing.


My first born was diagnosed with DDH (Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip) at around one year old. Since then we’ve had a couple of operations that have left her as you see her above. cocooned in a full body spica cast for the best part of 3 months.

Whilst the op went well, the outcome positive and Abigail’s general attitude has been amazing, the timing of this op has taken it’s toll as we have an 8 month old as well and juggling the two has been a challenge (massive props to my wife on tackling the majority of this)!

Couple this with generally being really busy with my job and you’ve got a pretty busy and generally absent Mr Lyons!

With life beginning to get back on track, and just over 3 weeks left in spica jail, I will be posting a lot more in the upcoming weeks!


plans for the next couple of months include

  • An update to my problems solving planning mat (probably later today!)
  • More MLM’s
  • More Humdingers (possibly into some sort of booklet too)
  • and I have a few ideas surrounding some more pedagogy style posts.

until then!
