"I'm sorry, I don't know who you are. Stop leaving messages on my answering machine."
Every girl I've previously asked to marry me

Sunday 3 January

Hello blog-readers, it's me, Anthony Clohesy. You'll know that from this being my blog and all. Now, I know that I haven't updated for a couple of months, but, if I'm honest, that's because not a lot has happened to me. My life has been pretty dull since 22 November, there haven't been any particularly exciting occurrences or unusual events to mention. No trips or interesting conversations.

Actually, now that I come to think of it, that's not entirely true. For example, I had quite a lot of mashed potato in early December, and towards Christmas I got engaged. I suppose I really should have told you a bit about that - please accept my bountiful apologies, and let me make amends by giving you a blow-by-blow account of the proposal:

Me: Hullo Becca Honcoop.
Becca: Hi Anthony Clohesy.
Me: So, it's quite sunny at the moment, isn't it?
Becca: Yes, but it might rain later.
Me: Might it?
Becca: Yes.
Me: Oh dear.
Becca: I know.
Me: On the other hand, it might not.
Becca: True.
Me: Do you want to marry me?
Becca: Yes.
Me: Good-o.
Becca: Do you want to borrow my umbrella, just in case?

So, there it is. I promise to update you more speedily with future marriages, births and deaths, otherwise my eager readers may get impatient and start constructing their own accounts. And that would be a disaster. This is probably a good time to tell you all, in passing, how much I hate my hat. It looks silly.
