Wot I loved today: this wonderful FB update

Whingey facebook statuses are dull and life-sapping. They’ve all but put me off logging in! But then I read status updates like this, from my friend who’s out in Costa Rica getting married (and doing some other rather wonderful things too) and my faith is completely restored. This is what she had to say: Dreams can come true. When I was 11 years old, my mum told me about a forest in Costa Rica that needed saving. My mum believed that children can change the world. Together with close friends we formed a dedicated group of young campaigners – The … Continue reading

Seductress/hostage taker

Hello dear friends! I apologise for my absence of late. I’ve been in Ibiza, you see. On a hen party. Did you hear me? I went to Ibiza! Where, like, trendy people go? They like get villas n shit? And they go to sunset bars and look good after a day at the beach? Yuh? That was me for the last four days. Me! Smelly old Robinson! I stayed in a beautiful villa with a load of beautiful women and had a properly brilliant time! Who knew?   I think the experience probably deserves a blog in itself but for now I wanted to … Continue reading

Bang, went my face. I fell out of my high heels.

Well, it happened. Publication day came and went. My book (pictured – once only, I promise) is out there, in the world. Feck! I didn’t knob up my radio interviews too horribly, although I did have an awkward moment when one of the presenters made some gag involving my name. The gag was clearly designed to invite a reciprocal response but the problem with that was that I had already forgotten his name. An uncomfortable silence ensued as we both waited for me to remember. Eventually, somewhat wounded, he soldiered on. Other than that, all was well. I signed books, talked … Continue reading

Lucy Robinson is not so bad you know

I was talking to my friend earlier today. She is one of the most disgusting people I’ve ever met. Think you’re talented? Forget it. You’re not. Not next to her anyway. Think you’re creative? Pah! Good-looking? Bad news, my friend! She’s better than you! She is creative, she’s funny, she’s clever and she’s absolutely beautiful too. She is a photographer, designer, blogger, branding consultant, pianist and piano teacher and best of all she’s created this absolutely marvellous children’s brand called Florentine and Pig which is just the most wonderful jumble of cookery, hilarity and creativity in the world. If I was a … Continue reading

The worst best date ever

Hello there chums! I write to you in a minor grump. It’s Sunday night and I have spent the entire weekend humping furniture and other junk around The Man’s flat, rather than stuffing my face with mince pies and jigging around like an excitable Christmas elf like I wanted to. Oh poor little Robinson, drowning under the sheer weight of my material possessions! What a twonk. So. In my last blog I found myself flailing around – rather unexpectedly – in the mad, bad world of internet dating. Not as a dater, mind. I think I’ve served my time there. … Continue reading

The world has gone mad

Readers. I have met a man I like. Yes. Hang on, WHAT? My dog Grouse, when he passes wind, often looks round at his backside in total confusion. “What was that?” he thinks. “Who made that noise?” That is how I feel writing the opening line of this blog. “I have met a man I like.” Eh? Me?  Lucy Robinson? Dater of drug addicts, face-clutchers, pigeon-racers? In fact, dater of (in recent months) bloody no-one at all? What the flaming Jesus is going on! I honestly don’t know. I was going about my business, trying to remember the Spanish word for ‘aubergine’ … Continue reading

An embarrassing blast from the past

You know how Facebook has that rather infuriating way of suggesting friends to you? People who you had sex with when you were seventeen and have studiously ignored ever since? Or people with whom you had a very dramatic falling out at university which resulted in the writing of fervent and angry poetry about the darkness of their soul? And you know how each time you see those suggestions you want to punch Facebook very hard in the testicles and say LEAVE ME ALONE FOR GOD’S SAKE! IF I WANTED TO BE FRIENDS WITH THEM I BLOODY WELL WOULD BE! … Continue reading
