Good Things Are A-Coming

I was looking for a reason to write a blog post today because I wanted to update you on something personal. You know what I am like – I dislike too much „I“ on my Armitage-centric blog. I am – figuratively – typing through my gritted teeth right now, because I also strongly dislike starting…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #16

The stupor is over! My modus operandi over the last couple of weeks was mainly characterised by rage. I wasn’t in a good place to write. And so I didn’t. Everything just enraged me so much, thanks to the frustration of powerlessness and despair I feel myself in currently. I won’t spoil the intro with it…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #15

Saturday!!!! We’ve had a sunny day and I am just back from afternoon tea with drop scones in the garden. Yum! Now that the big tree is gone, we have a lovely sunny spot in the garden. I am trying to convince Mr Guylty to build a lounge area made from pallets, but unfortunately “your…

Under RAPS

I’ve been wondering whether I should get back into more frequent blogging to give my recently-waning RA love a bit of a boost. But what to blog about? I don’t want to turn this into a medical record of my increasing ailments… However, it was actually on the way home from my physio appointment that…

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…
