2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #42

Oops, I got distracted. I was getting this round-up together after breakfast this morning. And then I spontaneously decided to melt up all my candle stubs and make some new candles. It’s a time-consuming business, but cheapskates like me stop at nothing when it comes to reusing material *evillaugh*. Several hours later I have poured…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #39

This week I slightly dropped the ball. After kicking off the discussion about the fundraiser last week, I tried to keep up with the comments but still haven’t replied to each and every one of them. An ongoing project. I also need to reply to a number of e-mails that have reached me – they…

All Set Up For Whatever Comes

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #34

Hello! As you have probably noticed, I took a little holiday from the blog over the last few days. I just needed a little bit of relaxation after the madness of last week 😜. But the round-up reels me in every time. It’s always a good reason to blog and be in touch with my…
