I’m embarking on an adventure.  It’s not just a new chapter in my life, but a whole new book!  I’m a Canadian, living and teaching in the UK.  This is my story.

*Updated October 2014*

I’ve rediscovered my love of crafting in the past year.  I mostly talk about that now…much to my aunt’s vexation!

*Updated November 2014*

As much as I loved the previous name,The Past is Prologue, I chose it 5 years ago coming out of a 15 year marriage.  I was moving/had moved to a new country/new continent and was looking forward to starting over.  The quote, from Shakespeare, really helped me put the past behind me without overlooking, under emphasizing or even over emphasizing how those 15 years had shaped me.  It helped me put it all in perspective.  However, I’m now happily in a relationship with my very own made-to-measure (or to update it true British speak…bespoke) Prince Charming for 5 years (no comments about the speed of entering said relationship! lol) and very much settled into life in the English countryside. I think it’s time for a change.

Why Toad & Magic?  I’m embarrassed to say…it’s not my nickname though!  However, Toad is a character in a fab dystopian ya book I read recently…The Maze Runner which I highly recommend!  The magic part relates from to the magic I feel whenever I find time to sit down and create.

Thanks for coming along on this fabulous journey I’m on…I wonder what round the next bend?

  1. Hi Erin,
    I love your blog, its the first one I’ve ever read. I’m hooked! I feel like I’ve seen parts of England and I want to go to.
    Are you staying there for next year? What are your plans?
    Let me know!!

  2. Hey Erin,

    Hope you’re having a great day!

    I’m doing an expert roundup on my site and I think many new Math teachers using education technology products in their classroom like me would love to know your answer to this question :

    If you could only use 3 Education technology tools/apps/sites for your teaching which 3 tools would you choose? e.g. WolframAlpha, KhanAcademy and Inside Mathematics.

    Thanks in advance!

    As soon as I’m done compiling the results, I would inform and link back to your blog.

    Thank you!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
