Likes snooker, beer, tea, rivets and solitude, and is strangely fascinated by the cinema organ.
And there might be something about railways.

  • A visual guide to uploading a video to the Kaltura platform 
  • A photograph of me at my MA graduation (1998)
  • A photograph of sons 1 & 2 (c. 1997)
  • The invitation to No. 2 son's graduation
  • An inspiring email from a student
  • A cartoon about sheep
  • A cartoon about fairness
  • Two conference badges
  • A birthday card print of Eric Ravilious' painting of Newhaven pier (from my mother)
  • A print of a watercolour of Monsal Viaduct which I found in a library book
  • A ticket for The Divine Comedy at the Brighton Dome (December 2017)
  • An AIDS ribbon (purchased at Brighton station that evening)
  • A postcard of a painting of Sheffield's Botanical Gardens
  • Business card of an academic from Bristol

  • A short article about the Teaching Excellence Framework
  • Year on year comparison of marks for different assessments on a module
  • A book review and a post-it for three books I might like to read one day (I've just ordered one of them)

  • A Christmas card picture of a blackbird
  • A birthday card picture of some foxes (from No. 2 son)
  • A note demonstrating the difference between 'as such' and 'therefore' because one of my pet peeves is people using the former when they mean the latter
  • My leave planning
  • A very complex diagram of the University's Unfair Means process (obscured)
  • A Private Eye article about Sheffield Coroner's Court (which may have been demolished by now for all I know)
