RA Pocket Shrine 235/? – Fishy

It’s time I finally post this latest RAPS that has been sitting on my desk for several weeks now. The events of the last month or so put a bit of a dampener on my blogging activities, but with spring comes a fresh new urge to get back into more blog activities. My creative energy…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #14

No way, it’s Saturday, and Sonja posts a round-up 😂. Miracles happen… Is it the sunshine (although still cold outside), or the prospect of asparagus with diced smoked ham this evening, that has dialled my mood and energy to eleven? The week started tough, with a trip to A&E Sunday evening. Those of you who…

Armitage Weekly Round-up #13

Oooh, number 13. Lucky number? In any case, a day late because I was simply lazy yesterday ☺️. Rather than sit at the computer, I was making a journal for my 17 yo niece whose birthday is coming up in May. It’s quite different in style to my usual vintage aesthetic, but I actually like…

Armitage Weekly Round-up #12

Happy Easter everybody. The second Easter in lockdown. Who would’ve thought that, this time last year? It’s been tough, but now there is somehow a silver lining (which is quite fitting for the day that is in it – which all of you who believe, no doubt are feeling particularly strongly). And as someone who…

Stamina

Good morning. There isn’t much to report at the moment. Mr Guylty is still in hospital, hoping to get out today or tomorrow. But we kind of say that every day when we talk with each other. He had a gastroscopy on Monday which thankfully came back without any issues. He’s waiting for a CAT…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #11

Good morning, world. I do not want to miss another round-up this week. But before I launch into it, I just wanted to say a huge big thank you for your wonderful responses and messages re. my husband. I have felt the power of positive thoughts before and once again I feel that the blow…

Quick Check-in

Hello everyone. Apologies for missing last week’s round-up and generally vanishing from my blog. I have been distracted but wanted to quickly give you a heads-up. The distraction unfortunately has not all been due to happy crafting – although I spent a couple of very constructive days at the weekend, sewing lots of little hand-sanitiser…

RA Pocket Shrine 234/? – Let’s Go Green

It’s a long-standing tradition that I always make a RAPS for Paddy’s Day. When I say long-standing… since 2016.  2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020. RA has no known connections to Ireland other than work colleagues (e.g. Orla Brady, Dervla Kirwan) and film locations (George Gently, Pligrimage) Although due to geographic proximity and historic links, almost everyone…

Sightings pt 2

Multi-post mood today. Sorry, but the photographer in me just can’t not.  (Spoiler warning, I guess?) #StayClose #RichardArmitage pic.twitter.com/p49pym6n9l — marina roshchina (@ladyaragorn71) March 15, 2021 #StayClose #RichardArmitage 😍😍😍 pic.twitter.com/gUMwITMFeF — marina roshchina (@ladyaragorn71) March 15, 2021 Big thank you to Marina for finding! And Ray’s look is becoming more distinct. Hoody-und-leather jacket. Slightly sleezy…
