Hello Again, So Nice To See You! #RABlogReunion

When Nat tweeted at the beginning of May and suggested a RA blog reunion to find out what people had been up to, I initially did not think the call for the blogging event was addressed at me but at all those bloggers who I remember from my early days in the fandom and many…

OT: Five Years

I still think of papa every day. I miss him. It’s his fifth anniversary today. He gave me more than just a piece of sky. Also unforgotten: The kindness of my fellow fans at a time that I needed you. Thank you, I will forever appreciate your support, your words, your gifts, your presence. Peace…

Happy Mail That Foreshadows Our Next Charity Auctions

Unsurprisingly, the initial tweet received many responses with interesting questions to ask Mr A. Yours faithfully also fired off a question, which elicited a “like” from Get…

Armitage Weekly Round-up 2016/26

It’s nice to come home after a long absence. Does three weeks count as ‘long’? The comfort of familiar surroundings is reassuring. My home, my bed, my regular workspace. And my blog. It’s almost as if I am looking at something entirely new, browsing my own blog, looking at photos I took myself, and yet seeing things…

TC+1 – Please Answer My Poll *EDITED*

ETA: Ok, as there is objection to the wording, how about the poll as it is down there is first of all only a way of determining the DESIGN of the badge? Vote again if that changes your opinion. Wording to be decided later. And as for text – if we need a new adjective…
