I ummed and ahhed over having a personal blog for a while, and eventually decided that I think too much, and that I should just go ahead and do it, because  otherwise I’ll constantly be thinking of things that I could write in it, and getting frustrated because I don’t have anywhere to put them. So here it is.

I am a Proper Northerner (none of that Yorkshire/Lancashire malarkey, that’s practically Midlands) living in London. Most of this blog will be about London and all the exciting things (and many of the less exciting things) I do here. If you don’t like theatre, the London Underground or charity shop bargains, go away now. There is nothing for you here.

A few facts about me:

  • I was brought up in Tyne and Wear, which was created in the seventies from bits of Northumberland and County Durham. When people ask where I’m from, I tell them “near Newcastle”, because nobody’s ever heard of my home town – only it’s much-more-famous namesake.
  • I have degrees from the University of York and the University of Sheffield. I will always have a soft spot for Yorkshire.
  • I’ve wanted to live in London since I was about nine, which is when I first visited, but I only moved here about a year and a half ago; my age now can only just be described as ‘mid-twenties’.
  • I am trying to visit every station on the London Underground map. This includes the tube itself, the Overground and the DLR. I have a blog for this here.
  • I am a librarian by profession, an Information Officer by job role, and I’m not going to tell you what my actual job title is, because it doesn’t make any sense to anybody.
