2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #1

The first round-up of the year is finally happening. Apologies for missing one last week – I was still in holiday mode and stayed away from the blog for a bit. But now it is time to see what has piled up since last year… Time for a clean slate new header: So, did anyone…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #46

Last week I was thinking that Christmas this year is going to be quite different from the usual. An opportunity to do something different, including starting the preparations for it early – and enjoying it longer. Christmas baking, decorating the house with wreaths and vases of pine and fir, and lighting candles every evening. And…

Back to the Saturday slot. Have you seen the new interview with RA in today’s Times? [Note: Article behind pay wall. Look in the round-up below for a short-cut 😉] Richard is really trying to get his image as a grump across… “I’m quite a socially distant person by nature. When I walk past a…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #36

In a complete switch-up of the usual MO, here is a Monday round-up… I somehow got sidetracked over the weekend, doing other things. The weather turned beautiful again over here – which is quite typical for Ireland. May and September are always the best (read: driest) months on our little island. So I spent some…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #32

Good morning to another weekly round-up! Are you already teased to the gills with the upcoming birthday auctions? Don’t worry, lads, I am giving you a day off today, and will refrain from further whetting your appetite. This is a round-up-only post, hooray. Let’s jump right in.  But – oh dear – the haul wasn’t…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #31

Hello on a beautiful sunny morning! With the sun shining, everything feels so much lighter. More about that later, but first I’ll give you what you are here for – the round-up. New header time! Let’s start off with our favourite knight, especially when declaring his love… Gifs by mezzmerizedbyrichard A nice little collage of…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #29

A mid-day round-up today because I went to the recycling yard with Mr Guylty this morning, followed by a lovely walk and a (take-away) coffee. We had to dump our collected recycling – and of course what happens is that Sonja picks up new rubbish while at the recycling yard 😂. Someone had thrown out…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #23

Why is it that with the easing of lockdown restrictions, the weather in Ireland promptly turns wet and cold? Murphy’s Law, I guess. So I am retreating into my craft room today, to face this mess.  The home improvements are continuing, and I have a sneaky plan involving the collected outgrown denims of the past…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #22

Is this a new photo? This is obviously also taken at the same time as Richard’s visit to the Audible HQ in New York (?) last autumn. I don’t remember seeing this exact picture then, though. And I would’ve thought I’d remember because I am quite taken with the nice shirt he is wearing. Who…
