Vintage Robinson in Argentina: Robinson gets a date (she thinks)

 Copyright EVA BELL PHOTOGRAPHY

Morning all! HAPPY MONDAY. So, I explained here why I’m not doing my Life I Love blog for a short while. Here, following on from where I left off on Friday, is my third Argentina blog. It’s the one where I sort of got a date with a bloke called Paul. http://lucy-robinson.co.uk/romance-fewer-options/

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

Life I Love: FRANCE!

 20140615-170517-61517860.jpg

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

Loving New York day 20: near death and cronuts

 20140514-085851.jpg

I have been slack at blogging the last few days. I was away in Connecticut and obviously there is no internet there of any sort. There never has been, it’s like a State policy or something. I guess the actual truth is that I’ve just been having ALL THE FUN and keep being naughty and pretending I can’t hear myself every time I tell myself to write a blog. It’s been so magical – stunning drives through villages and towns with clapboard houses and beautiful little white churches – several marshy places that seemed so familiar that I couldn’t stop … Continue reading

Loving New York Day 12: BEAUTY (no beast)

I’ve never really thought of NYC as a beautiful city. Even though I like it so much I often consider moving here illegally. (I’m not serious, American Immigration people.) Yesterday, I changed my mind. It’s a stunner! I took a walk along the High Line – crammed as it is with wild flowers and trees and (amazingly) people getting married – and then took a wander round the stunning Frick Collection, marvelling at its arcadian gardens and improbable peacefulness. Not to mention all those amazing paintings. (Without protection glass or ropes in front of them either! You can get your … Continue reading

Loving New York Day 11: Lindsey Kelk

 photo (55)

Yesterday I moved back in with Marge, who’d kicked me out for a few days. This is because she is a BIG HO. (I think this is how Americans write ‘hoe.’ It makes me laugh a lot more without the E. Do you feel the same?) Marge isn’t really a BIG HO. She just had another visitor. I mean, she invited me to come over for a week and I decided to come for three, so it’s fair enough. Anyway, during those BIG HO days, I went and stayed with my chum Lindsey Kelk. She’s a Times top ten bestselling … Continue reading

Loving New York 10: being so cool

 20140505-082716.jpg

I’m not cool. But I felt it for a night. I stood on the VIP balcony overlooking the stage at the CHVRCHES gig last night. All around me were men with massive beards and round glasses (this is the facial hair uniform for cool men these days) and below me were an ELECTRO BAND. Even though it seemed that it was probably a lot cooler in that balcony to stand still and vaguely nod my head to the music, I was rocking out proper by the end, with thrashing arms and screaming and stuff. They were immense! Or whatever you’re … Continue reading

Loving New York Day eight: Lindsey Kelk and the Naughty Raccoon

 Naughty raccoon - Lucy Robinson blog

I’m staying with Lindsey Kelk for the weekend. There are so many things I am loving about staying with her, but top of the list was a two-hour walk round a dark park last night, filled with mating people and skunk smokers and men lurking in clumps of bull rushes. All of these things were good, but none of them were beaten by the NAUGHTY RACCOON who came to stare at us. ISN’T HE NICE!
