Can anyone help me? I have recently had my 2012 MacBook in for repair. I used a 2006 MacMini with a TimeMachine restore of my MBP in the mean time.
I now have my laptop back and would like to carry on using that but have since made some changes to files etc on my Mac Mini. How do I merge the two?

I want to revert back from my MacMini to MBP. Can I restore the backup from my MacMini back? Is there any way to merge?

Well you could use Migration assistant to move the TM backup of the Mac Mini back to the macbook pro.

Great shout, totally forgotten about that!

Check the "Move your content to a new Mac" Apple Support article, specifically the Migration Assistant sections.
Having read through, it seems to do all that well, but gets really thrown up about migrating mail accounts. Luckily all mine are IMAP so a matter of re-adding.
