2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #5

Today’s round-up comes with a big fat Spoiler Warning Frankly, I wish I hadn’t delved into Tumblr today. Or at least adjusted my black list before I started looking for this week’s round-up items. Because I have basically seen all of Spacesweepers before I have watched the bloody thing. Absolutely no criticism of the tumblrs, simply…

Shrine Update

Today is one of those days where I am fiddling around with what I call “replacement activities” – because I am procrastinating over the job I really need to do. I need to write an article about skiwear for my job… And so I have started off this morning with updating the shrine gallery on…

Entertainment Ahead

Just a couple more days until Richard’s Korean sci-fi drama is released on Netflix. It’s not big time my genre, and let’s face it, he’s not going to be the main focus of that film, but I’ll give it a go. Can’t say that his facial shrubbery convinces me, but well… Bonus points for Irish…

RA Pocket Shrine 230/? – Kiss with Confidence

Today is the first day of spring. In Ireland. Yes, officially. It’s St Brigid’s Day, and also the Celtic feast of Imbolc (the spring festival). This year I am opting to go for the Irish way of counting the seasons. Cos frankly, after this winter, with the darkness, the cold, the stress and the covid,…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #4

Such an exciting day today! Guess what? I have just sent my first ever online grocery shopping order. 😂 Yes, in Covid times, even the most mundane of tasks can become extraordinary. But well, with Covid numbers still worryingly high here, and now also the virus in our house, I’ve decided to minimise risks and…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #3

In last week’s round-up, I had listed a tumblr post that compiled the detail shots by Mike Lees of the intricately detailed Uncle Vanya set. Beauty aside, it is just astounding with how much care and precision the set was designed. In the comments, Besotted and I were musing about the point and reason of…

Meme Friday

We all need a little fun – even if a huge pressure has been lifted on Wednesday. As bad as the situation still is, concerning Covid, at least we now have a “reasonable” person in the White House again, and even though Biden is far from my favourite, I think he will do an ok…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #2

Candle on, cup of tea beside me, it’s time for theeeeeeeeeeee… No question, Mr Thornton for me. And it’s all down to the man who played him. Post by scalpelgal I still haven’t watched UV, partly because all I need are the gorgeous Astrov gifs made by riepu10 No Armitage in these pictures, but I just…

A Year And An Age Ago

Anniversaries are usually not on my agenda. I tend to forget significant dates – whether it is my own wedding anniversary (I usually only remember it on my son’s birthday – who was born five days after my wedding) or things like theatre visits (don’t ask me when I saw TC for the first time,…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #1

The first round-up of the year is finally happening. Apologies for missing one last week – I was still in holiday mode and stayed away from the blog for a bit. But now it is time to see what has piled up since last year… Time for a clean slate new header: So, did anyone…
