2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #17

Esther is so right. She counted her blessings in her recent post, and so will I, briefly, today. Mr Guylty received his first jab yesterday. That is so much pressure off our backs for now. I was able to register for vaccination on Wednesday, but given the situation with the ransomware attack on the HSE…

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…

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…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #11

Good morning, world. I do not want to miss another round-up this week. But before I launch into it, I just wanted to say a huge big thank you for your wonderful responses and messages re. my husband. I have felt the power of positive thoughts before and once again I feel that the blow…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #10

First up, apologies for my whining yesterday. I really don’t like myself in moan-mode, but yeah, I’m having a hard time at the moment. At least I have taken action and made a GP appointment for next Tuesday. The new reality: No face-to-face consultation. The doctor is going to give me a phone call at…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #9

Hello hello hello! The weekend is there, and here is your weekly round-up. I tried very hard to find some shtuff, but I had trouble even scraping 10 items together 😔. But here we go – enjoy: Riepu10 has edited the Gallifrey Time War poster and taken all the writing out so you can see…
