From Paris to Wythenshawe with Love

Bonsoir mes Chers Lecteurs! Ca va?

Okay – that is the extent of my written French.  I am a fluent speaker, and by fluent I mean some brie and a bottle of vin rouge and I think I am Coco Chanel when I probably sound like the policeman from Allo Allo: Continue reading

So Many Activities So Little Time

Hi there Dear Reader,

How’s it going?

mm hmm, really? wow! Thanks for the update.

If you can’t already tell by the previous sentence I may have gone a little mad.

Turns out I am not very good at multitasking, which is not ideal when I am combining a pretty stressful day job, ice-skating training  (yes this is still happening), writing this little bubble of joy AND now writing for Time Out.  You’d think I’d be so busy I wouldn’t have time to eat but somehow I have managed to maintain my cuddly exterior.

Sod’s blimmin law.

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.

If you ever feel tempted to do this, trust me. Don’t!

Seriously.
