I am not engaged to Matt Ridley!

Polyvore is reporting the engagement of ‘Hon. Caroline Fiennes and Hon. Matthew White Ridley’. Congratulations to them!

However, please know that that is not me. In fact, we’ve no idea who it is: I know of three Caroline Fiennes’es, none of whom is engaged to Matt Ridley and nobody in our family knows of a titled Caroline Fiennes. Furthermore, father, son and grandfather in the Ridley family are/were all called  Matthew: the use of the ‘Hon.’ for the Matthew here implies that it refers to the son of Lord (Matt) Ridley, the science writer and former chairman of Northern Rock.

The joys of big families. On which note, here is a random photo of Ralph and me:
