The week has arrived! THE UNFINISHED SYMPHONY OF YOU AND ME IS OUT IN PAPERBACK THIS THURSDAY, 19TH JUNE, and I am so excited about it I woke up at 6.45am today! I never wake up at 6.45am. And so it’s WIN TIME. Lots of you said you fancied a signed copy and/or invite to my launch party, so here’s what you need to do. I’ve popped a little shot of the glorious book jacket over on my facebook page and all I’m asking you to do is to share it on your own FB page. And then tweet me, … Continue reading

Wot I loved today: The Man

 20140402-103459.jpg

The Man’s been away a lot in London. I miss him. Although it’s nice of course to have an occasional break from the trumps and the mess. But I miss him most when I wake up and he’s not there next to me, curled up like a little shrimp. A six foot shrimp. You know what I mean. So you can imagine my joy this morning when I found The Man asleep in the bed next to me. He got back crazy late so I didn’t even notice him coming in. But there he was! A big handsome sleeping prawn! … Continue reading

Wot I loved today: (no sex) in the CITY

 20140122-130044.jpg

I walked from my meeting at Penguin – near Trafalgar Square – to a lunch in Spitalfields. It’s been an age since I hung out in the City of London. Most of my London life took place in Westminster and surrounding boroughs and to me the city remained a strange beast. I had a brief fling with a banker who worked there once and drove him bloody mad with my incessant requests for nights out in the square mile.

Thoughts from the Megabus

 20131219-102434.jpg

I’m on the Mega. I’m on my way to London to do some Christmastidings. A few thoughts: 1. IT IS SO AMAZING TO BE ABLE TO GO TO LONDON AND NOT FALL TO PIECES AND DIE. 2. A lot of women around me are wearing very nice knee high boots. Are knee high boots a thing again? If so please advise ref colour, style etc. Thanks. 3. The Mega is great. The seats recline further than National Express seats, it always seems to be on time and it costs five English pounds to get to London. I can’t understand why … Continue reading

NEW YORK DAY FOURTEEN: HANDBAGS AND OYSTERS

 Lucy Robinson eating 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
