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…

Only One Week To Go…

Good morning. It’s been a good few days since I last posted. What kept me away were work (yay – I am at a point where I am delighted when I have orders for translations or articles coming in…), and my Etsy shop. The latter is really giving me joy. It has been really busy…

RAdvent Calendar 2020 Is On

Yes, it’s happening again. The fun silliness never stops. During those long, empty lockdown days I amused myself with yet another iteration of the RAdvent Calendar. With three years under my belt, I felt this is an established “tradition”, so I had to come up with yet another fest of cheese and cheer. As in…

Sunday Funday

First of all, congrats to the US of A for voting for change. I was delighted to finally hear it confirmed last night that Biden/Harris won the election. No gloating and sneering necessary, the last four years have been divisive enough in the US. And yes, I can see that even though I do *not*…

All Set Up For Whatever Comes

It’s a dull day here in Dublin, but it has just been brightened up considerably. Picture quality could be better, but you can see what I just received in the mail. Our fan artist extraordinaire, Ani, has gifted me this gorgeous brooch that she made. Love it so much – from the choice of image…

A Bit A’ This ‘N’ That

Today’s post comes as a mixed bag of inconsequentialities, both RA-related and OT, just because I have – oh wonder – a renewed urge to write a blog post. It proves a point I made in an earlier post that I am more likely to blog when I need some hobby writing in order to…

Just for Amusement

Good morning. Ah, it’s wonderful when troubled waters are calm again. How about a little bit of harmless entertainment? Have you seen Ella’s blog post yesterday? For the VoD fans among you, she found an interesting side note, regarding Geraldine’s house. The house, located in the village of Dibley Turville is up for sale. For…

Scarves Aren’t That Bad…

… when worn by the right people… I mean, Claude Becker and the Armitage original… that’s almost identical!!! But yeah, I am deliberately leaving out the “mustard scarf of evil” as sported by Sir Guy… Can’t remember Lucas North ever wearing a scarf. He probably had bronchia of steel. But look, even Portah gets a…

Distraction Challenge 12 #ADC

Goodness me! If this pandemic doesn’t stop soon, I’ll go bankrupt over all the audio books that Richard is churning out. I had rather hoped that his hinted at “special something” was a tiny little freebie, but ok, I am curious about the Chekhov short stories. Mind you, I *do* think it smarts a tiny…

RA As Breakfast Sprinkles

What a great start to the week. Just in time for breakfast, the post man delivered a package from the Netherlands with a speciality that is unavailable outside of the Low Lands. Dear Esther had heard my desperate lament that my stash of vruchten hagel had recently finished. And she went out of her way…
