A Reintroduction

As this month I have sponsored a blog for the first time, had a guest post go up, and attended my first blogger event, there are a few newbies knocking around here, so I thought I'd reintroduce myself.


My name is Rachel, aka the Inelegant Wench. I'm 24, living in Leeds, England at the moment, but originally from the Midlands. I work in the NHS as something scientific, but I don't want to say exactly what because I don't want to mix up my professional work world with my fun bloggy one, I'm sure you understand.

My blog name came from being called wench a lot by one of my best friends, and as I have been compared in the past to an elephant doing ballet, as well as being ridiculously clumsy and having zero spatial awareness, that is where the inelegant bit comes from. Pretty accurate description of me to be honest!

I am a huge Harry Potter fan and never pass up the opportunity to geek out over my favourite things. I love maths and science, and am hopeless at makeup which makes me a bit of an unusual blogger around these parts. I like to be very honest, whether it's about not enjoying getting drunk or putting too much pressure on myself, it all gets written about on this blog! I'm also not afraid to admit to things like being awful at accents (video included!) or enjoying YouTubers with target audiences way younger than me.

If you know me in real life it will be of no surprise that I love food. Most of the things in my life revolve around food, and I am usually eating, or planning what I'm going to eat next, so every now and again a recipe post appears such as my 2 ingredient pizza dough or my basic tomato sauce. I have grand plans to do more of these in the future, as I have a lot of recipes passed down from my Mum, who is an amazing cook!

Rich is my other half, you will see his name pop up a lot around here, and occasionally a soppy post about him, such as our relationship story so far will find it's way onto the internet. He is in the RAF, and is currently out in Afghanistan, but he did come home, but had to go back out again. I like to look on the bright side though, and write about the positives of him being away, as well as the other things which happen, like becoming glued to your phone!

I hope this has given you a rough overview of who I am and what I write about. This post is a bit like a clip show of a TV program, showing little bits from here and there, and I also think I used far too many I's! (Is anyone else singing the clip show song from the Simpsons now or just me?)

Thank you for checking my blog out, and to each and every follower, thank-you so much. I still find it mental that anyone other than Rich and my family read this blog, so the fact that 73 (!!!!) of you are interested in what I have to say is crazy. I love each and every one of you, and if I could send you cake I would.

If you ever want to chat to me just tweet me @inelegantwench, I love making new friends!

  2. nice to 'meet' you!

  3. Excellent post; as a newbie I appreciate you making it much easier for finding out lots about you all in one go (I'm an odd combination of nosey and lazy :p) xxx

  4. Lovely post - just as interesting for myself who's followed you for a while (not in a dodgy way though, honest...) as for newbies! :-) x
