#2022RABirthdayFundRAiser – Breakthrough Post #1

Milestones, landmarks, mileposts, breakthroughs. Call it what you will but one thing is certain: It never ceases to amaze me how generously the fandom steps up to the plate and bids in the auctions. Bidding started today more or less as soon as I had uploaded the first handful of listings. Yep, that’s right, even…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #26

So how do we feel about Dr Armitage 🎓? I saw some really fun pictures of the “Doctor of Lettuce” yesterday. Trust RA to imbue such a dignified honour with a bit of humour 😉. (Sounds as if I have a problem with that. No! I think it is a sign of humility and it…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round up #23

Hello hello hello! It’s been three weeks since the last round-up. An update is overdue, especially since I already returned from Germany a week ago.

My great annual Social Media hiatus has started. That is a bit of a misnomer, as I am only staying away from Twitter. I haven’t been active on FB for years, so no need to rein myself in there, and IG is also not a major time-thief for me. So, since Ash Wednesday I have…

I am using this weekend to get all the final preparations done. Tick off list: finalise eBay item selection write eBay listings (so that they are ready…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #27

Hello hello hello! This may be the last day of our current heatwave in Ireland, and so I am late with the round-up on this warm, sunny Saturday. I’m just back from taking a gorgeous walk with my son, to our favourite place, Poolbeg Lighthouse. And I thus had some precious quality time with him,…
