Welcome to Ian Braithwaite's blog. I'm a nurse, and I live in a flat perched over a steam in Leeds, Yorkshire. I also have strong links links with Edinburgh, Scotland, and Sydney, Australia, having lived in both places recently. I play bass and also enjoy climbing mountains and snowboarding down them.

Why write a blog? Well some things, written down, last longer than if they are just forgotten. I reckon. So this my attempt to remember a few of the things that have amused me. (I'd rather have a dog, but that's just not practical at the moment.)

If you'd like to contact me, send an email to ianatbraithwaitedotmedotuk
