Aye up mi duck…
…As they occasionally say in Nottingham, I’m Roy Manterfield.
I mumble and I’m a bit nerdy.
My daughter says I’m a “little old grey haired, hunchbacked, mumbling nerd.” Which is accurate(ish), but she sadly failed to incorporate ‘chocolate’ into the description.
I was born (one of those life events that you have to go through to get chocolate), I had quite a happy upbringing, I went to school and art college, got a degree, got a job, got married to a wonderful woman, had an amazing daughter, live in a terrific city, travelled a bit, but not as much as I’d like, eaten chocolate, but not as much as I’d like, made some appalling puns, but not as much as I’d like, and I haven’t died yet, although it’s only a matter of time, and probably not as much as I’d like.
And I don’t have any stitions, super or otherwise.

Oh yes, this blog…
I nearly forgot, to save wasting your time, I should mention what this blog is about.
It’s a random personal collection of my comparatively pointless puns and gags, collected jokes and a few unexceptional thoughts on (not particularly) interesting subjects; in other words it’s somewhere for me to be not very serious, because I’m not.
I keep a few things here that entertain or interest me; some family history, stuff about Nottingham and of course the arbitrary pointless word-play I can’t seem to avoid annoying people with. Here I can get them out of my system and have a chuckle while I amuse myself.
So, there you go… ah, you’ve gone.

I moved a previous ‘about’ to Family History if you really want to read it.
A bit more stuff about me.
And there’s a somewhat uninspiring and rambling Hello from when I started this blog.

Did you know my late Father…from his “lunge”
at the YMCA on Friday nights?
Hello Ian, yes, I did know your late father Geoff from the YMCA fencing club. In fact I have a short post on here about the club: https://mumblingnerd.com/2011/03/14/nottingham-ymca-fencing-club/
There is also a comment below that post from one of Geoff’s other sons, presumably your brother Geoff. Roy
