RA Pocket Shrine 232/? – A-dayum

Let’s start the week with a little shrine smile. It’s Monday and I need to work. An article about woollen hats is waiting to be written. And an online test for a prospective job is also looming. As usual, I am procrastinating. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed in lockdown. But I am telling myself…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #7

Happy Sunday, all. I am having a busy weekend – work *hooray*. Who would’ve thought that we’d get to the point where we are ecstatically happy because we are able to work??? A big 6,000-word translation on the future of audience addressability (yep, I am at it again with digital advertising) takes a couple of…

Shrine Update

Today is one of those days where I am fiddling around with what I call “replacement activities” – because I am procrastinating over the job I really need to do. I need to write an article about skiwear for my job… And so I have started off this morning with updating the shrine gallery on…

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…

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…
