  1. Mat…I encourage you to ‘get out more’. Luv, you really do undersell yourself. While I understand this blog is not an attempt to get the highest bidder, I know you’re more interesting than this! GIMME A REASON TO COME BACK!

    Embellish a little! Take the liberty of using dramtic licence! Make stuff up! At the moment you’re playing right into my hands. You know you’ve been in England too long when you enjoy garden fairs and look up the meaning of tautological redundancies (not sure why but I’ll make something up if you want me to).

    Let’s me, you n Steph jump in my car and go on a trip. No map. No plans. Just the burning sun (lots of sunblock) and a sense of adventure! Then we’ll see how interesting the blog gets!

    Hows about it?
