NEWS: new date for my book launch !

 The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me

Here’s a piece of breaking news. My next novel, The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me – which I love MADLY and of which I am truly proud – is out sooner than we were all expecting. Reach for your diaries right now: IT WILL BE PUBLISHED ON JUNE 19TH. DID YOU GET THAT? JUNE 19TH! This is three months and two days away, as opposed to four months and two weeks away which is what we were initially expecting. As I wrote recently, I have not yet had the experience of feeling desperately proud of a book. Not that … Continue reading

Wot I loved today: Not owning a Kindle

 20140102-115537.jpg

My friend Parkin likes to laugh at me. He thinks I’m useless in most respects. He’s wrong, of course, but he’s very funny so whenever he attacks me I’m laughing too much to punch him in the face or at very least argue back. When he learned that I do not own a Kindle he was absolutely disgusted. ‘Let me get this straight, Robinson. When you pack your suitcase to go on holiday – that time when you need to save on space and weight – you pack a pile of big, heavy books?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Do you also write shopping … Continue reading

Wot I loved today: ALL THE THINGS.

It’s been three days since I dropped a Wot I Love blog. This isn’t because I’ve stopped loving things, it is because the data allowance on my phone has run out for this month and I won’t pay for any more. I AM A PIKEY OF ASTONISHING PROPORTIONS! Additionally, I am away from home and whenever I’m somewhere with wifi I’m generally talking to people. But I’m here now on a sofa with wifi and nobody to talk to so I’m going to tell you about the things I’ve loved since Monday. So: On TuesdayI loved having a literary inspiration … Continue reading

More about all this positivity.

 CHEESE - Lucy Robinson Blog

Alright kids. How are you? Good? Bad? In between? However you are, I send you the very warmest of salutations. It’s quite odd being back out there in the world after so many months of semi-entrapment in my house, but it’s been REAL NICE to say hi to you all again. I’ve been proper enjoying the tweets and messages, like, I really have! They make me go, ‘YESSSS!’ And ‘AWWWWW!’ ‘WOWZERS I AM SO LUCKY’ and so on. I would never have dreamt of contacting a writer or blogger before I became one myself, but only now do I understand … Continue reading

Wot I loved today: tea in the pub

 20140114-125514.jpg

As I mentioned recently, I got the go-ahead to start drinking again after several years off. The process of recovering from ME also resulted – rather fabulously – in a full recovery from the problems that had caused me to give up sugar and alcohol a few years ago. You can imagine my joy. Life without cake is really quite pointless. Anyway, my body is doing fine with sugar but it’s not so keen on booze. In fact, it hates it. It makes me feel sick and wibbly and my hangover the next day – even after a mere glass … Continue reading

Wot I loved today: Naked Disco

 Lucy Robinson - COPYRIGHT EVA BELL PHOTOGRAPHY

I walked into the bathroom this morning to find The Man, fresh out of the shower and naked as the day he was born, engaged in a full-on disco. He was singing and dancing with total abandon and only making cursory attempts to dry himself. And when he saw me he carried on dancing but somehow dragged me, barely even awake, on to his bathmat dancefloor and made me join in. And that’s that, really. I won’t post a picture of that one.

Wot I loved today: Guilt-free bacon sandwiches

 Bacon Sandwich. Copyright Lucy Robinson blog

I gave up meat when I was thirteen because I could no longer reconcile the contradictory imperatives of desperately loving animals and desperately wanting to eat them. I did fourteen long, miserable years without meat. It was awful. If you’re a vegetarian, don’t be cross. Just understand that I was born a carnivore. There wasn’t a day when I didn’t long for a nice pork chop or some roast chicken or a rare steak. I was nearly sacked from a hotel I worked at as a teenager because the chef caught me with a  lamb shank in my hand, sniffing … Continue reading

I had never seen this video before today, when The Man played it over breakfast. (We were eating oatibix and gooseberry yoghurt, for your ref. ) How had I not seen it before?? It’s SUPREME! http://vimeo.com/15268076

Wot I loved today: a postbox

 20140104-120743.jpg

There isn’t much to say about this, beyond the fact that I was stomping gaily along the road yesterday when my eye was caught by a postbox. Without knowing why, I stopped and stared at it, and thought, ‘I love you. I love that in an age when we can even make babies over the Internet you are still here, dumpy, stumpy and defiant. I love your squat flaky redness and your persistent refusal to increase the size of your letter slot. Thank you for being here, you stubborn piece of British design.’ I took a photo of him, gave … Continue reading
