About elentari86

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.

Recent Escapades

I’ve been fairly busy lately. We’ve had various bank holidays here in the UK and when you get a free day off, I think it’s good to do something with it! The first bank holiday – Good Friday – was … Continue reading

At the risk of being self-indulgent, this post is more for me than readers – a convenient way to see everything I did last year of significance, all in one place. Walking and Running I carried on walking with my … Continue reading
