As someone who’s notoriously bad at completing tags and memes, I’ve decided that the only way to buy myself a bit of time is to devise one of my own and keep you all busy.

So this is it…. The Tardis Tumble

Before any diehard DT fans get overexcited, I am not asking you what you might do with 5 minutes locked inside a blue box with the man himself (we won’t even mention the ‘new’ doctor, *sob*).

What I want to know is, if you had access to the Tardis and were able to tumble through time and space to visit a younger version of yourself, what advice/words of wisdom/fashion & beauty policing would you pass on?

There’s no limit on the number of younger versions of yourself you can visit, but play fair…there’s only one Tardis so don’t hog it for the whole day. (insert your own time/space continuum joke there)

When you’re done, tag as many (or as few) people as you like, link back to me and pass it on…

Obviously there’s no time limit on this, any time in the next draconitic year will do.

Here’s mine to kick off with:

1. I’d travel back to visit the 13 year old version of me wearing light stonewashed jeans and a pink jumper (the least of my worries).  It’s about 4.15pm and I’m on my bike delivering the Eastern Evening News- yes I had a paper round.  I’d park the tardis in the car park of Buxton Mill and flag me down, advising (very gently) that as I round the next bend in the road it would be best not to start kicking the hell out of my front wheel just because I think there’s something stuck in it .  I’d predict that there’s a 100% certainty that if I do this my foot will get stuck in the wheel, hit the forks, and I’ll fly over the handlebars, chipping my front tooth, nearly losing the other and scaring myself for life.  The pink jumper isn’t likely to come off too well either…

2. It’s 1997, Airlie Beach and it’s hot.  I’d spend a little while warming my cold British bones before visiting my younger, skinny self in  the VW combi with the Sesame Street curtains and showing her what a lower back tattoo looks like on the older version of herself.  Back fat?  Who invented that?

There’s loads more, but it’s your turn now…

Have fun!

    This is a good one. My Tardis would be overheating if I went back to alter every blip along my timeline. Ha!

    ooh, now there’s an interesting one. I too am notoriously bad at doing them, only because i forget, so keep poking me until I do.

    I must admit to get quite excited at the title though…a trip in the tardis with David tennant…ummmmm…..
