2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #29

A mid-day round-up today because I went to the recycling yard with Mr Guylty this morning, followed by a lovely walk and a (take-away) coffee. We had to dump our collected recycling – and of course what happens is that Sonja picks up new rubbish while at the recycling yard 😂. Someone had thrown out…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #28

Hello hello hello! A week has passed and I am back from my mini break. I am going to indulge in a little travel report here, so those of you who have no interest in sitting through someone else’s holiday pictures – no offense taken, I totally understand! – please just scroll down to where…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #27

Good morning, good morning! It has been months and months since I last posted a round-up in the usual 8am GMT+1 slot. So much for lockdown providing more time for hobbies… For this edition of the round-up, I have gone back to my usual MO of compiling it Friday night and then scheduling it so…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #26

The silence on my blog this week may actually speak volumes. In a good way. Yesterday I had my call with the people who offered me a new job, and the plan for our cooperation is now cut and dry. I am starting my work this weekend with a translation, but after that we are…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #25

Ooooh, number 25. Let’s celebrate! New picture? I’m not sure what the source of this image is, but I like the natural hair colour in this. And I am laughing at the casual little scarf. So “artist”. Or German. That’s what my Irish children claim. They say you can always tell a German by the fact…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #24

After a few days of rain and overcast skies, today I woke up to a blue sky and sunshine. Good weather does wonders to my moods – and Mr Guylty’s as well, so we hopped into the car and went out for a walk in the middle of Dublin Bay. The walk along the Great…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #23

Why is it that with the easing of lockdown restrictions, the weather in Ireland promptly turns wet and cold? Murphy’s Law, I guess. So I am retreating into my craft room today, to face this mess.  The home improvements are continuing, and I have a sneaky plan involving the collected outgrown denims of the past…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #22

Is this a new photo? This is obviously also taken at the same time as Richard’s visit to the Audible HQ in New York (?) last autumn. I don’t remember seeing this exact picture then, though. And I would’ve thought I’d remember because I am quite taken with the nice shirt he is wearing. Who…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #21

Did you enjoy yesterday’s RA Blog Reunion Day? I have to say I found it really lovely – to read so many blog posts on one day, catching up with bloggers, and reading so many good stories and entertaining content. It really reminded me of ‘the olden days’. No, I am not saying everything was…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #20

How are you all doing? It was an exciting week for us fans, with that video dropping. Really has kept me smiling for the last few days, and so much so that I don’t even mind that tumblr this week is not a huge long list. Ha – do you think there is a strategy…
