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…

Sightings

Good morning. New week, new start. In case you hadn’t seen the tiny extra snippets of RA that emerged from the set in Blackpool over the weekend, I have a wee link for you HERE from a local who stumbled across the set. (Link takes you to the point in the video where RA can…

OTPS

Try saying that. “Otps” Not really that snazzy a term, I guess. But how do you describe a pocket shrine that is off topic? Off Topic Pocket Shrine – OTPS. There are only a handful of those. The pocket shrine is really reserved for Mr A. In the past I have only cheated on him…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #10

First up, apologies for my whining yesterday. I really don’t like myself in moan-mode, but yeah, I’m having a hard time at the moment. At least I have taken action and made a GP appointment for next Tuesday. The new reality: No face-to-face consultation. The doctor is going to give me a phone call at…

No Escape

Exactly one year ago, on March 12, 2020, I was supposed to go to London for the weekend. The purpose of the short trip: a meet-up with several friends from all over to see Uncle Vanya in the Harold Pinter Theatre. March 12 was a Thursday, and the previous couple of days two of my…

RA Pocket Shrine 233/? – Be Well

A little change of plan. The fish still have to wait because a surprise shrine made it faster to its destination than I thought. And seeing what tin it is in, it kind of fits today. Well, yesterday really, since it was International Women’s Day, and the design on this little tin is a classic…

RA on VoD

That’s Vicar of Dibley not “video on demand” although that would be kind of fitting, too, as the special about VoD was shown last night on a pay channel (i.e. vod) that not everyone has access to. I haven’t seen the full video yet – but am hoping that someone possibly recorded it and will share…
