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 #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 #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…

It’s Tea Time

The other day I was half-heartedly watching an Irish food programme on telly, when suddenly I heard the name “Porter”. In fact, they were talking about Porter cake. I thought of this again: I’d take a cake from Porter any day. And how has your Sunday been? I am going to eat cake now. Cheese…

Has Richard Armitage a designated “Tweet Day”? Seven days since his last advertising communication tweet, he put three tweets out there. He hinted at a charity offering in aid of Great Ormond Street – probably the children’s story that he had asked for recommendations for a while back. And a characteristic Armitage praise tweet for…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #16

Before we get to the round-up, I have to rescue a Kathy Ode from the comments. Did you see this? I think that is another one of Kathy’s gems that looks straight into the heart of the fangirl 😉. Sorry, what did you say???? Right, let’s go to the round-up. It needed a new header.…

Misheard Movie Quotes

My friend Abby posted a tweet the other day about the lockdown stage where you are in “spouse chews loudly” phase. Touché. Although the lockdown phases in my house also manifest in other ways. Imagine my surprise this morning, for instance, when Mr Guylty suddenly and without any prior introduction starts suggesting things I could…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #15

It’s the weekly round-up, ladies. You are lucky it is happening at all – because these days I have trouble keeping up with the days of the week. I am always a day behind, it seems. No wonder, when the week has been stripped of the usual early morning markers. Not that I am bored…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #14

It’s Saturday! I have a a round-up for you. This is basically the fourth round-up from quarantine. And yesterday we were told by our taoiseach that the lockdown – due to end on tomorrow’s Easter Sunday – has been extended until May 5. No surprise, really. We may have flattened the curve, but the virus…

Distraction Challenge 7 #ADC

Waking up to bright sunshine changes everything. For the first time in days I felt keen on getting up and starting the day – even though I had work to attend to. But well, even work has become something to cherish, as every job that lands on my desk means a little relief, both financially…
