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…

It’s Tea Time

The other day I was half-heartedly watching an Irish food programme on telly, when suddenly I heard the name “Porter”. In fact, they were talking about Porter cake. I thought of this again: I’d take a cake from Porter any day. And how has your Sunday been? I am going to eat cake now. Cheese…

RA As Nail Polish

It’s finally getting nicer weather outside, and I thought it’s time to break out the nail polish. Which colour should I choose, girls? I know, I know. Not original. There are thousands of memes like that online. Although I haven’t yet seen one with RA. I’ll go off now, painting my nails.

Have Mercy, Here’s More Percy

No, not another shrine. But Kathy’s ode that she hid in yesterday’s post’s comments. Ok, and to make it worth while for you, here are some Percy caps. Lastly, avert your eyes if you hate the cad. Otherwise: enjoy *coughs*

Misheard Movie Quotes – Part 2

Yesterday’s misheard quotes were quite the mood-lifter, it seems. There have been a couple of submissions overnight, so I’ve worked tirelessly all morning to get them into shape for you. First up, a co-production by Jenny and myself. I can attest to the importance of herbs in shopping-restricted pandemic times. It really gets a bit…
