After a few days of rain and overcast skies, today I woke up to a blue sky and sunshine. Good weather does wonders to my moods – and Mr Guylty’s as well, so we hopped into the car and went out for a walk in the middle of Dublin Bay.
The walk along the Great South Wall to Poolbeg Lighthouse is only 1 mile long, and with a few stops along the way to watch the terns, the sandpipers and the guillemots that are nesting along the pier, we had a leisurely hour’s walk there and back. And all before 10am. That sets you up well for the day and you feel you have earned your breakfast 😉. The temperatures were mild, but there was a little bit of wind. The older I get, the more sensitive I react to drafts – I had to wrap my scarf around my head. I felt a bit like the queen in her headscarves, so when we got back home, I immediately cut up an old t-shirt and sewed up a few simple “gaiter” scarves – basically a fabric tube that can be worn around your neck as a scarf, on your head like a hat or just like a head band, or you can pull it up over the back of your head to cover up. Folds up to the size of a packet of tissues and thus can be kept in the hand bag or a coat pocket. – A productive and healthy morning.
Let’s see how productive tumblr has been this week:
- This Thorin image is not new, but I had never really seen it so close up. There is something moving about the little messy hairs under Thorin’s lobe, and the plait hanging along his beard. Posted by ladyoakenshield
- Even if this is a repost, I really like the way mezzmerizedbyrichard has created these edits for VoD. Nice colours, nice choice of quotes, nice pictures
- Another one by mezzmerizedbyrichard – a transcript of what Richard said to the BBC’s Front Row about “Taking Risks”
- Rechurd-derpmitage with a cheeky chat-up line dedicated to John Standring. (And fellow fan Berta)
- Guy likes sleeping. Yeah, right. Nfcomics’ What a Guy Wants
- Fizzyxcustard shows off her cool Thorin coffee mug
- Claude Monet at sunrise.
That’s basically what I looked like this morning when I realised the day was nice.Always worth seeing for the smiles. Gifs by riepu10
- Hehe, I thought this picture was hilarious. A BTS shot of Richard as Thorin in a fight scene. Posted by tolkien–behindthescenes
- Here’s some free Armitage audio: A recording of a T.S. Eliot poem that RA did a long time ago. Posted by p-isforpoetry
- Close-up of hands. Topless Daniel Miller. Need more prompts? Gif set by riepu10
- Roziwinchester googled Richard Armitage, and this is what came up *haha*
Short and sweet?!
I’ll try and go back to the comments now. Hope you all have a lovely Saturday!
