Life I Love: Vintage Robinson in Argentina

 photo (56)

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

Wot I loved today: A night at The Maltings

 20140102-115537.jpg

I don’t really do New Year’s Eve. Not since millennium eve when I lost my friends in the crowd, was forced to snog a woman and then slept rough in a train station where a tramp was running amok with an old-fashioned scythe. This year, in accordance with tradition, I ignored NYE completely. Instead we had our friends the BBs round for an asado and by Jesus it was good. We ate like princes! Eating over we put some choonz on and had a bit of a rave. (That entire sentence makes me look very old and very sad,.) The … Continue reading

Meaty mornings

I took The Man to meet Kieran, my old housemate. I love Kieran; I used to live with him. I love The Man, I now live with him. I thought we could share some chat about what a great person I am to live with: kind, funny, tidy: the sort of roomie you’d be really proud to introduce to your friends and family. The waiter came over to take our order. It was breakfast; we were in a French restaurant. He spoke to us in French because no one in that restaurant ever talks to you in English. It wouldn’t … 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

I love you. Goodbye.

Dear Buenos Aires, It is with great sadness that I write to bid you farewell. After seven months in your warm, slightly sweaty embrace, I am finally strapping on my backpack and setting off on a great big coach. My beloved Buenos Aires! How will I live without you? You have opened my eyes. You have kicked me up the backside. You have driven me mad. You have changed my world. You stinky, noisy, beautiful, infuriating, bustling, fabulous, exciting, exhausting place, you. I literally cannot believe the time has come for us to part company! I am heartbroken! As a … Continue reading

Adios, Jeremy

A few days after arriving here I met a very nicely-dressed young man named Jeremy. He had a crisp English accent and nice leather shoes. He, like me, had been here a few days and had already become addicted to steak. He was having it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Like me, he was doing this on his own in a furtive manner.) Jeremy’s adventures with steak have been a little more successful than mine, however, in that he Met Someone on his VERY FIRST RESTAURANT VISIT and now they are in love and making plans to move countries and … Continue reading
