About

What have I ended up on?

You’ve ended up on the blog, the Fable of Bede. It’s currently a daily blog, designed to be a creative challenge for me and hopefully an interesting experience for you. Articles are posted at 8am GMT every day regarding something that happened to me in the previous twenty four hours.

Who is Bede?

Bede was an English Monk, who lived quite a while ago. He happened to die in 735 on the 26 May, and I was named after him having been born a day earlier (25th May 1995, not 735. Just to clarify.) Matthew Bede Wickens was the name my parents cursed me with, and this blog may be the first time it’s actually come into use. Bede was well known for being a writer, and that’s pretty much what I am: a writer and philosopher and do that. I read, write, play my cello and revise. Beyond that somewhat dull summary? Keep reading and you’ll find out.

Where are the balloons?

The old design of this site has changed slightly: I got a little fed up with the balloons and the green, so the site has a slightly sharper look. The design will always be tinkered with slightly when I’m feeling slightly bored.

  1. Thanks for checking out and following my blog recently! I hope you find some recipes on my blog to try for yourself some time. I look forward to following your future posts as well!

  2. Bede was pretty brilliant – I wonder if you have ever visited ‘Bede’s World’ at Jarrow? Sounds as if it will be dreadful – but it isn’t. Hope the revising produces well-earned results.

    1. I had no idea such a place existed! This is wonderful! I am, I’m afraid, far south of Jarrow and so have no real chance of visiting it in the short term visit, yet I guarantee I will visit before death. Hopefully sooner.

Chat and debate. It's great.
