Richard Has TWO New Fundraising Causes

Two posts today because this is important – and timely. Especially after we wondered earlier this winter what had happened to Richard’s fundraising efforts on JustGiving. He has started a new fundraising page for a homeless charity. I'm fundraising for St Mungo's. Check out my @JustGiving page and please donate if you can. Thank you!…

Greetings from Between the Years

Three days without posting seems like such a long time nowadays 😉. How is everybody? Did you all have a good time over the Christmas days? I have just taken my mum to the airport again. She only had a short visit here this year, but I think she came for the best days. Because…

A Very Merry Christmas to You All

We are nearly there. All the shopping is done, the tree is up and decorated. There is the church service in the afternoon, then the traditional sausage and sauerkraut for dinner – and then it is unwrapping time. At the beginning of December I wondered whether I was going to be able to go through…

#RAnetRescue – Step by Step We Are Getting There

It’s a horrible wet day here today. Definitely not the best day to set out and choose a Christmas tree today. It’s slightly fraught, anyway, because I always insist on doing Christmas the German way. While in Ireland the Christmas trees are set up at the beginning of December, I follow the old tradition of…

More Adam Price & RAdvent Calendar Hump Day

Herba and Servetus have already reported on the few extra trailer bits of The Stranger that appeared yesterday. (They both have the clip on their blogs, in case you haven’t seen it yet.) Lots of angst and mystery, and Richard does both well. I’m just taking the opportunity to add a couple of screen shots I…

RAdvent Calendar Comes Again

Is it too early for presents? Nah, it’s never too early for presents. For the third year running, I have decided to sweeten up your run-up to Christmas with a RAdvent Calendar. Best of all – all that sweetness without any calories. What’s not to love? So get ready for this year’s advent fun. 24…

Happy Christmas, All!

The tree has been put up, the little appreciation gifts handed in to my favourite two employees in the local supermarket. The husband and I have sneaked out for a quick, secret cappuccino while my mum is having some quiet time, and while all is still still, I am taking the opportunity to wish you…

2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #33

So, guys, what did you think of that whole “heartfelt letter” manipulation suggestion by Epix the other day? Anybody follow the call and send some sweet words to the man? Well, cynic that I am, I firmly decided against any free Twitter advertising for Epix public outpourings. I have never been much of a “correspondent”…

Day X of 12 Days of Christmas

The festivities are over – and the 12 Days of Christmas raffles, too. Apologies for not posting yesterday as planned – we left early for our traditional family Christmas walk-cum-picnic, and so I was not back on the laptop until late. I raffled the big surprise parcel this morning, and we now have the winner…
