Life I love: Katie and Kim’s Kitchen

 20140704-170154-61314872.jpg

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

Loving New York Day 7 – Crack Pie

 photo (52)

There were so many things I loved yesterday. There was the woman in Macy’s telling me that a handbag I was gazing at was ‘really English, like, so suitable for England it’s, like, oh my god, THIS IS A BAG FOR ENGLISH PEOPLE’ (seriously). There was the lovely osteopath who sorted out all my problems in an hour, and then told me about the best pizza in the entire world. (Everyone in New York recommends the best pizza in the entire world. Their recommendations are never the same.) There was the unexpected email from an old school friend who now … Continue reading

Loving New York: WATER + WAITERS

 dr_derek_shepard_grays_anatomy2

What happens in the UK when you want a glass of water with your food: Customer: Oh, and some tap water please. Waiter: Slight nod; expression of distaste *Fifteen minutes elapses* Customer: excuse me . . . Waiter: (Cannot reply; waiter has lost sense of hearing) *Food arrives* Customer: And can I have that tap water, please? Waiter: Yes, just a . . . (disappears) *An hour elapses* Customer: I’d like the bill please. Waiter: Alright. Here’s your water. (Looks really annoyed, as if customer is a massive twat for wasting water) What happens in NY – and, as I … Continue reading

NEW YORK DAY FIFTEEN: FAREWELL MY FRIEND

 Lucy Robinson Blog

Our final day in New York was beautiful. (Not mardy and grey like this photo.) The sun shone in that unmistakably New Yorkian way; the fire escapes seemed to be covered in diamonds and the brownstone glowed as if it had been lit by an experienced lighting designer. Elegant columns of steam snaked up from manholes just like in the movies and . . . (Shit. I just said ‘movies.’ I also caught myself saying ‘can you pop the trunk?’ to a taxi driver and ‘we’ll take the check please’ to a waitress. I’m out of control. Or even outta … Continue reading

NEW YORK DAY FOURTEEN: HANDBAGS AND OYSTERS

By the time this blog gets published it’ll be two days since Day Fourteen happened. This delay has occurred because I am really rubbish and simply could not make myself write a blog, however loudly I shouted at myself. Fortunately, not much happened on Day Fourteen, so you can now relax. So. On Day Fourteen I realised I had to stop and rest, urgently. My legs had stopped walking. So I stopped and rested. American hotel beds are so ginormous that you can spend hours hanging out in them before getting bored. There’s just so many areas of the bed to … Continue reading
