First blog post

Right first post, so best not cock this up!


What’s up everyone! My name is Nicky and i’ve started my blog ‘A brew and a blether’ with the intention of sharing some of my experiences, thoughts and pretty much just chatting about whatever comes to mind (as if you were sitting down with an old mate having a good old catch up) – for future reference i have a tea white 2 please!

A little about me, i served in the Royal Navy for 13 years (left in Sept 16) so not that long ago! I will be sharing some of my experiences, photos and stories with you all.

If you or any of your friends/family are considering a military career then i would be happy to answer any questions or worries you may have (as long as it’s UK Armed Forces, sorry i have no idea about how it works for other countries! I could probably hazard a good guess though)

Whilst i was in the Navy i trained to become a professional photographer, so i will be sharing quite a lot of pics from not just my time serving but also some of my personal portfolio.

After 13 years sailing around the world i have such a huge love for travel and can’t truly express the feeling i get when i go somewhere new and just explore! Fun fact – I have been to all 7 continents (yep including Antarctica!)

I also want to talk about subjects such as art, music, films, books, computer games and many more.

Like i say if there is anything you want to have a blether about then send me a message and i’ll feature the questions in an upcoming blog and i will try and answer as best as i can.

Right, think that’ll do for a first post, all the best!

Off for a brew…
