Hello

My name is Andrew Burns, I live in Edinburgh with my wife (our son is currently at University in Dundee); and this is my second blipfoto journal ... this one is to record the resurrection of my rather rusty hill-walking exploits :-)

My last one recorded my marathon-running exploits, which culminated in my completion of the May 2014 Edinburgh Marathon - at the grand old age of 50!

I'm not going to attempt an entry every day this time - but will post something when we manage a serious walk ... and from October 2017, I'm going to make a big effort to do at least one such walk on the '2nd Saturday' of every month - thus the recent slight change to the account username ;-)

I may well continue to intersperse entries with the odd poem; occasional updates from our much-loved Allotment; and with any local cycling trips we undertake --- as per my previous journal ... I do hope you enjoy it all :-)

P.S. I also happen to be the ex- Council Leader, here in Edinburgh (more on that here), but please don't hold that against me!
