We went to Sardinia but I sort of basically forgot to take any photographs.

Cornwall n that

Me and Belle went to Cornwall for a few days. It was ace of course. But I sort of almost completely forgot to take any photographs, except for these.

Notes from a room, part XXVI

This is Iris' room. It's difficult to know what it means exactly but I went straight to the top and found out. Anyway it's top secret so I can't tell you. There are some things you're better off not knowing, trust me.

Mr C around town, part VIII

This is Dram Bowie, Mr C's workshy literary agent, introducing Mr C to a proper job red telephone box, and only 400 miles from Les Londres. Mr C is always prepared to go the extra mile for genuine Aulde Englishe Telephonee

Among the remnants of all that jubilating from a while back, all that bunting, all that cunting, ah them were the daze


On a diplomatic mission to the La Silla observatory in Chile and the stars beyond. Unfortunately Mr C did not have the correct paperwork so he got no further than the gate but at this point we think Mr C has definitely travelled further than that joyless torch relay (© J Goebbels esq) did a few weeks ago

Mr C around town, part VII

It's getting to the point where Mr C has travelled almost as many miles and met almost as many folk on his meetngreet as the Olympic matchstick managed to do a few weeks ago. Here we see the world-famous Mexican wrestler Grim Scott meditating shortly before mash-potatoing the Russian Bear (in a grimlock of course) during the great Southend Mexican standoff of August 2012. Proof then, if indeed proof were needed, that Mr C refreshes the parts that other spiritual guides cannot reach.

Mr C around town, part VI

News just in from Edinburgh — the city of dreams that gave us the Royal Mile, the Castle and the fabuleux Centurion public haus — anyway, Mr C is still making lots of new friends. Here he is out late last night with Fay Fife and her friend Colin. It looks a bit like Fay is finding it difficult to read but it was quite dark and guerrilla cameraman legend Murray Ramone was experimenting with some of his famous dutch angles so, trust me, Fay really liked Mr C and Mr C loves Fay and the Rezillos of course.

All the info and more is here. I will definitely be going to see Absolute Beginners, and Belle is definitely going to see Labyrinth. Oh and the quad posters are being printed in metallic gold. Woo woo!

Mr C around town, part V

His relentless schedule continues elsewhere in a parallel universe as Mr C makes his daytime TV debut with Basildon's finest — K from Kunt and the Gang — and they spent a lovely afternoon making sweet noises about Noel Edmonds together.

Please don't click through if you're very young or quite auld or offended by the use of bad language.

Mr C around town, part III

Mr C continues on his Meetngreet tour and he will never give it up! Pictures sent in by some of Mr C's new friends in Belfast, Headingley and, of course, Auld London Town.
