Happy EastRA

I think I am cracking up. An Easter celebration that will be remembered forever. As I am writing this blog post, I am looking out over our residents’ park across the street from our house. It is a wet Easter Sunday here, on the chilly side, but it makes me smile to see a family…

Postponed, Not Abandoned

Like a lot of you (I imagine), I received notification from ATG yesterday about my remaining tickets for Uncle Vanya.  That is good news for me – but probably will still provide a lot of disappointment for others who were travelling from farther away and will not be able to rearrange their travel plans as easily.…

Help Me: Most Iconic Images

Jeepers, was I a bit whiny yesterday? Might have been the lack of sunshine yesterday. The brilliant sun today boosts the mood. As does doing something special for someone else. Grah, I’d hate to back-pedal now and admit that “I made the day count”, *ugh*. Little Miss Guylty has turned sweet 19 today. Good thing…

Checking In

Warning – rambling and rant-y post following with unsightly insights into a lockdown-damaged mind. Yesterday I gave myself a day off from the blog. I just didn’t feel like writing a distraction challenge post, and I just couldn’t really think of something other to write about. I didn’t even write my diary yesterday – which…

This doesn’t really concern the blog as such, but if you are following me on Twitter, just to let you know that I am going on my annual Twitter retreat from tomorrow. Lent always provides that opportunity. Not that I am religious in any shape or form; I just like the handy timeframe provided by…

Seven-Year-Itch: (Missed) My Blogiversary

When it comes to my blogiversary, I am confused at the best of times. I can never quite tell whether I should “celebrate” the day I signed up for WordPress (9th of November) or the day I actually wrote my first blog post (12th of November). In this case, as you can see by today’s…

Short RA Mention

Hi everyone. I am still travelling. Or travelling again. This time Northbound after a wonderful long weekend. After meeting Kate I had the pleasure of staying with Cramerry for two nights before moving on – finally – to the destination of the trip, my teacher trainee reunion. It was a great meet-up – and we…

Benefits of Being a Fan

Since we are discussing the whole issue of calling/describing ourselves as fans vs “well-wishers”, I would just like to quickly say that being a fan has benefits. My current trip includes meeting two (former) fans. Yep, fans may be intensely interested in a particular subject or artist. But in my experience they *do* have other…
