Armitage Weekly Round-up 2016/10

Let’s start with a warning. This is going to be a much longer post than my usual Saturday morning fare. Simply by virtue of little ole Guylty being positively *starved* off the interaction she usual gets through Social Media participation. I know, I know, I’ve been droning on about this. And it’s not only that I…

Mood-Boost Thanks to You

Monday mornings are not the best of times anyway, but some Monday mornings already start badly on Sunday night and set me on the wrong foot.

OT [+ a bit of RA]: Let’s Celebrate Memories
