What is this blog about? I hear you ask. In a nutshell, my name is Ian and I created this blog to scribble down my thoughts, have a place to look back on memories and generally log my life. It gives me a space on the world wide web where I can be me and put down my ideas and thoughts. It really is as simple as that. I have been blogging for a number of years now and you may have read my previous blogs, Northern Natter, Lancashire Lad and Bob`s dairies. However, those are no more and all my posts are scribbled down here. The picture above is of one of my dogs, Trudy, as she surveys the West Pennine Moors that separate Bolton and Blackburn.
