2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #15

It’s the weekly round-up, ladies. You are lucky it is happening at all – because these days I have trouble keeping up with the days of the week. I am always a day behind, it seems. No wonder, when the week has been stripped of the usual early morning markers. Not that I am bored…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #14

It’s Saturday! I have a a round-up for you. This is basically the fourth round-up from quarantine. And yesterday we were told by our taoiseach that the lockdown – due to end on tomorrow’s Easter Sunday – has been extended until May 5. No surprise, really. We may have flattened the curve, but the virus…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #13

A round-up. That means it’s Saturday. Welcome to another week of Sundays… We lost our son yesterday – as in: his flatmates returned to the flat and Master Guylty immediately packed his bags to join the fun downstairs. He didn’t even wait to say good-bye to his sister and me (who were out for a…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #12

Ten days after school closures and enforcing of social distancing and working from home, our taoiseach (prime minister) Leo Varadkar spoke to the nation again last night. People in Ireland had been staying at home mostly over the last while, and the spreading of the virus had been slowed down a good bit. Apparently they…

Armitage Weekly Round-up #11

Weekends do not feel like weekends anymore, with social distancing keeping me indoors. I decided after my last shopping excursion on Wednesday that we should give it a try and do with what we have in the house for the next four days. Thanks to 3 litres of regular milk and 4 litres of almond…

Armitage Weekly Round-up #10

Operation Distraction will go full force now. I intend to up my posting frequency – to a blog post per day or so. Not least because *I* need the distraction. I am just back from the local pharmacy where my husband – he of the pulmonary fibrosis – regularly buys his tablets. They know him…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #9

Before the weekend is over, I have finally managed to put the round-up together. Can’t let that old tradition slip just because I am busy making other posts, right? You’ve read enough waffle from me the last couple of days, so here goes… Riepu10 congratulates you to International Women’s Day Wrap up warm, baby. Richard…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #7

The great thing about missing a round-up? That is catching up with double the fun the next week! Hello and sorry for the radio silence. You know me… once out of step, Guylty finds it hard to commit to coming back. Commitment issues, yeah right. Having said that – the reason I didn’t post last…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #6

Today is a special day for me. After a month of moving old chests, dusting in dark corners, sawing wood, painting walls, drilling holes, sorting and tidying – and then stalling because sometimes even a self-induced change is somewhat overwhelming – I am finally moving my laptop to my new office/workspace. I have taken all…
