The Life I Love
I explained here why I’m not able to write my Life I Love blog at the moment. (TEMPORARILY!) So to continue where I left off yesterday, here is blog two from my life in Argentina all those years ago… http://lucy-robinson.co.uk/romance-four-options/
I’m struggling to find time to upload my daily Life I Love blog at the moment. I’m still making sure I take note of all the things that make me smile, but the small matter of having, erm, FIFTY THOUSAND WORDS TO WRITE IN SIX WEEKS, plus a fuck-load of quite serious plot wrangling, is impeding my ability to share such moments with you. Sorry. So, in the interim, I have decided to introduce you (or re-introduce the die-hards amongst you) to my early blogs from Argentina. I lived there for a year starting June 2010 and had the very … Continue reading
Look who The Man and I are looking after this week, at our friends’ beautiful farm! NICE PIGGIES!
A cafe opened at the end of my road recently. I knew I was going to like it. Possibly because it’s an unpretentious looking place with not a stupid cupcake in site, possibly because when I finally made it there the other day they were closed for a week because they’d gone to Glastonbury. My kind of girls. There was a huge picture of the two of them in the window, loaded up and ready to go to the festival, one wearing knickers and sturdy boots. Even better. These are not the kind of ladies to be found standing at … Continue reading
Today’s Life I Love blog is pictorial. It’s my walk to work, which I think is a perfect example of this mad-ass city; its politics, its endless graffiti, its irreverence and its prettiness. It’s a vile day today so it all looks a bit dark and grey, which is misleading. It’s probably the most colourful city I’ve ever seen. In particular I draw your attention to the golden leg sticking out of the front of the Bohemia shop and the poster for the morning rave, which I will most certainly be attending.
Firstly: Welcome to the final blog post of my little tour for The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me. It’s been a WEEK! Thanks to Victoria, Laura, Eve, Kirsty, Chloe and Kevin for having me. So. My final post. I wrote it last Friday so it’d be all ready for posting today. I thought I’d nailed it. Only I hadn’t. The post was meant to act as a finale to my blog tour, in which me and my book characters talked about things they were afraid of. Today there was going to be a video of me facing a fear … Continue reading
I have been shit at Father’s Day for a long time. (Forever.) Because it’s a made-up thing I decided years ago that I would not celebrate it and my Dad has never seemed to mind very much. On Sunday, Facebook was covered in photos of peoples’ Dads. I laughed: ho ho ho, my Dad would hate to have me rabbiting on about him on social media. Ho ho ho, look how we rise about this commercial nonsense! And then I saw a post by a friend of mine who lost her Dad to cancer ten years ago – I remember … Continue reading
Well hi there! The Man and I were well naughty. We went to France for a week and then refused to come home! We stayed for two! We is terrible! We are not terrible. We are wise. The weather was beautiful, the cheese was stinky, the vineyards were stunning, the people were lovely, our little tent was palatial and thanks to a great website someone recommended – coolcamping.co.uk – we stayed in some of the most peaceful, beautiful rural campsites in France. We left for France on the anniversary of me being struck down by ME. Few words can describe … Continue reading
I remember listening to my Mum trying to explain, a few years back, why she loves the BBC’s coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show so much. She watches it every year with such great enthusiasm and joy; anyone making noise while it is on is summarily ejected from the room. I did listen to her reasoning but I did not get it. ‘that’ll never happen to me,‘ I thought secretly. ‘However old I get.’ Only it has, with Springwatch. Friends, I am completely addicted. I love it so much that last night I actually found myself doing a round up … Continue reading
People, I have amazing news. Penguin have been in talks with all the lovely folk who sell my books online and here’s what they’ve agreed: If this video below reaches 1000 hits, they will release the ebook of Unfinished Symphony EARLY. As in, a whole week early. You could be reading it in JUST OVER A WEEK! HEAR ME NOW! Given how many of you have wailed at me about having to wait for this book, I think this is a marvellous little thing. I for one am definitely up for having that little bad boy on my Kindle before … Continue reading
