To do List of Sophie Fox aged 29.18

Dearest Reader,

Thank you for all your patience with me yelling at you about the UK Blog Awards.  You’ll be pleased to know that voting has now closed so I cant harass you about it any more.  Feel free to put away your stress balls and voodoo dolls in my image, I will be nice from now on I promise!

I did something very stupid today.  At work we use statistics a lot to calculate people’s life expectancy.  In a moment of sheer madness I decided to put in my own date of birth and see how long I have left to live.

Who am I kidding, of course I ate it all in one go!

Sophie She Vote!


Evening Dear Reader,

I need your help on Monday.  I’ll get to why in a minute, but first I need to explain something for legal reasons.

In case you haven’t noticed, I have become obsessed with autobiographies of funny women (see header to blog for further info).  Whilst I attempted my own memoir last week, this week, to my dismay, I discovered that Jennifer Saunders has already written my life story.

In the first two chapters of her bestselling book Bonkers, not only does she mention that she used to mime the flute in the orchestra, but she also says she wants to be an archaeologist, AND she’s from Cheshire.  This is my life! Continue reading
