I haven’t really got a good grip on WordPress yet, nor a clear idea about what I will write about… so open to suggestions/requests/comments… I’ve kept to a very simple theme as my first attempt saw me get a little bit too excited with themes and colours…. it looked rather like a 5 year old on psychedelic narcotics had designed this page…. oops!
