I know you are probably on the edge of your seat wanting to know how I got on at the British Ice Skating Championships..

*dramatic music and tension building drum roll

I only came blimmin first!!!!

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!!

It’s Friday – Make Good Choices People!


Well helloo there Dear Reader!

It has been somewhat of a while (again) since we last spoke.  How’ve you been?

Ooh sounds painful.

Me? How nice of you to ask. I’ve been pretty good actually (aside from the obvious insanity of writing an imaginary conversation – see above) Continue reading

That escalated quickly

I am too cool.

Hello Dear Reader,

I’m glad you have managed to overcome all the eclipse related excitement to stop by Sophie, She Wrote.

Today is an anniversary of sorts.  This time last year I sat down to watch Murder She Wrote and realised I had already seen it.

That kind of thing shouldn’t happen when you are 28 and it made me have a quiet word with myself.  I decided there and then that I needed to be doing something more productive with my life and I immediately marched outside shouted “Hello World!” and began to pursue my dreams. Continue reading

Shut up Soph!

Evening! Sorry I apologise for my freshness.  I’ve not been in work today.

Oy! stop pelting fruit at me, its not my fault!

No, my Sibling who I personally think is the best Sibling ever, bought me tickets to see The Lion King at the Palace last night.   I had the foresight to book the day off.

Thanks! I know I’m a genius.

Hang on – MENSA is on the phone.

“hmmm…yeah…oh, I see….sorry….”

Ok, I’m not a “genius” but screw it Im not the one who has been in work today – you are!

What To Expect When You’re Not Expecting


Dear Reader

I have HUGE news.



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…

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.

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world

I had to walk into yours.

Sorry about that.

Typical barman after I've been in.

This is the completely opposite post to my declaration of sobriety last week. Turns out, I may be able to survive without meat and carbs but Sophie Anna Fox aged 28 and ¾ really struggles to exist without wine.
