My blog template

I've not been happy with my blog template for a while I've decided to change it and get rid of some of the clutter that was on my previous template.

I'm pretty pleased with the result although my technical skills have let me down again...

(1) The title of the blog "The Running Librarian" isn't clear enough

(2) I like the first picture in the header but not the flower...not sure what this says about me!
