Good morning graemefrommoss vale,

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
I understand you have a question about your Apple ID. An Apple ID is an email address. Most people use their primary email address as their Apple ID. You only need one Apple ID which can be used for all of Apple's stores and services (iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, iCloud, etc.). Some people choose to use a different Apple ID for the data they store in iCloud (Contacts, Calendars, Notes, iCloud Photo Library, etc.).
So, if you created two separate Apple ID accounts (using different email addresses), you can either use them both as described above, or you can just use one of the Apple ID accounts and ignore the second account, since you can't delete it.
Here is some additional information about Apple ID:
Managing your Apple ID
Change your Apple ID password
What to do after you change your Apple ID email address or password​
Availability of two-factor authentication for Apple ID
Contact Apple for help with Apple ID account security
Happy Holidays!
