Annual Review

Events have overtaken me slightly. I have only just realized that today is my second blogiversary. Yay! *throwsconfetti* Wow, things have really changed for me over the course of the past 12 months. A look at my monthly blog stat reveals it (click each month to go the respective monthly archive): Guylty’s Past November 2014 (6)…

OT: Memorial

Forgive me for being selfish and writing an Armitage-less post today. But I had been planning to write this little memorial ever since the summer when so many of you expressed your sympathy over the sudden loss of my father. I was inundated with very welcome messages of consolation and many of you also very…

Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #31
