What To Expect When You’re Not Expecting


Dear Reader

I have HUGE news.

c/o freakingnews.com


I’ve been struggling to get my head around this for the past 3 months or so and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t really nervous about telling you.

The thing is that I’m not sure I am ready for the responsibility, not to mention the additional expense and the sleepless nights.  I’m not in a relationship so to have this extra thing in my life and to be doing it all by myself is scary and I hope people won’t judge me for it.

At first I thought I couldn’t go through with it but I have got used to the idea and I’m really excited.  So, in spite of my reservations I’ve decided that these things happen for a reason and I am going to embrace this next step in my life…

Here goes…

Screw you guys, I’m going home



This is it. Moving day.

And when I say moving day – I don’t mean “I’ve met someone and now we’re in love and going to live together” Day, or “I have saved so much money I can buy a house” Day.

I’d like to thank The Academy

I know I’m confusing you with these Wednesday posts but I had to as I’ve been nominated for an award! Oscar? No. Emmy? No. Slimmer of The Year? Not likely seen as my gym bag has been untouched in my office for the past week.

It basically says they think your blog is nice.

If you have not seen the film Pay It Forward I urge you to do so immediately, but not if you are feeling in any way depressed as it will tip you right over the edge. It highlights the two different opinions about these kind of awards.



Haley Joel Osment is either saving the world one good deed at a time or starting his own Ponzi scheme depending on your point of view.


Some people think its crap, but I think that until we become as famous as Perez Hilton we could all do with a little bit of help and it is lovely that other people like what you do.

Tonight Matthew, I’m going to be…Fashionable!

Oops, sorry, I guess I should have warned you about that before you fell off your chair.

Are you ok?

Your surprise at my declaration is mildly irritating but you are forgiven. No you did not misread me.  This is happening – my first ever blog about fashion. Before you know it pigs will be flying and Taylor Swift will be able to end a relationship without writing a ballad.

The more Facebook follows I get, the less likely I am to die alone. Right?

The rumours are true folks – lock up your USB sticks, delete your naked photos, and reinforce your passwords – this kid has discovered social media!

Scroll your pretty little peepers to the right of the screen and you will note that Sophie, She Wrote (or SSW as the kool kidz I call it) now has its own Facebook page – Huzzah! I am also on Twitter. Ka-Blam!
