Keep Calm and Marath-On

Hi there its Sophie Fox, Marathon Runner here.

*smug face*

*smug face*

Yes I know – I am very annoying but ‘tis true, I ran a marathon! I finished in 4 hours 42 minutes and 8 seconds (the seconds are very important apparently).  The more I think about it the more frustrating it is that I didn’t manage it in less than 4 hours 30 but just typing that sentence makes me hate myself a little bit.

I don’t eat raisins but would you like a date?

Ta-da!

No your eyes are not deceiving you – it is I, Sophie Fox.  Messing up your timeline with the kind of self-obsessed drivel that makes Donald Trump sound like the Dalai Lama.

Happy Christmas, Winter Solstice, Hannukah, New Year, Dry January, and Pancake Tuesday.

 

I have decided to start writing again.  Mainly because my dad keeps bugging me about it but also, I feel like you, Dear Reader, were so welcoming to me nearly two years ago and I am not repaying the favour.  It is the equivalent of bringing round a bottle of cheap plonk to a dinner party and then drinking the Verve Cliquot someone else brought.

I would never do that btw…

Apologies to those of you who are friends with me on Facebook or who work with me, or who have ever met my parents, you probably know all about this by now.  But for those very few of you who don’t – no I am not drunk or joking.  I actually won!!

Sophie, She Wrote – On Ice!

Happy New Year!!

I know, I know, it is practically February. My sincerest apollos (again) for the lack of post so far this year.  I’m not very good at New Year’s Resolutions – clearly.

You have no idea of the strategic placing of friends it took to get this picture!

As much as  I tried to muster up some enthusiasm for life last Friday I simply couldn’t.  I’m sure you agree Dear Reader, that nothing can smack the Christmassy out of you like the first week back at work after the New Year.  Well, that and the vague sensation that you ended up in Chinese Karaoke after the Christmas do.

For Auld Lang Syne!

Wow!

I am genuinely impressed with myself that I am dressed as I am writing this (sorry boys).  Not only that but it is also mid-afternoon and I am 100% sober AND I have not had any chocolate today.  I am sat eating a chunk of Christmas ham but in my defence, I cooked it and it is delicious!

Cooked like Nigella only without the heaving bosom and inappropriate licking of spoons

Cooked like Nigella only without the heaving bosom and inappropriate licking of spoons.

In case you have been wondering where I have been hiding for the past week or so, I have managed to divide my time equally between the pub, the fridge and my bed so if you haven’t been in any of those places then chances are we have not crossed Christmassy paths.

Believe me – if someone had been in my fridge you guys would be the first to know!
