RA Pocket Shrine 236/? – Woolly Wonder

The mail is taking ages these days. I’d already wondered whether this shrine had gone missing – which would’ve been even more terrible than any lost shipment. Because this was a little RAPS mood booster for a lovely fellow fan who is currently undergoing some health treatments. Another experiment with spraying a mint tin gold,…

RA Pocket Shrine 235/? – Fishy

It’s time I finally post this latest RAPS that has been sitting on my desk for several weeks now. The events of the last month or so put a bit of a dampener on my blogging activities, but with spring comes a fresh new urge to get back into more blog activities. My creative energy…

RA Pocket Shrine 234/? – Let’s Go Green

It’s a long-standing tradition that I always make a RAPS for Paddy’s Day. When I say long-standing… since 2016.  2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020. RA has no known connections to Ireland other than work colleagues (e.g. Orla Brady, Dervla Kirwan) and film locations (George Gently, Pligrimage) Although due to geographic proximity and historic links, almost everyone…

OTPS

Try saying that. “Otps” Not really that snazzy a term, I guess. But how do you describe a pocket shrine that is off topic? Off Topic Pocket Shrine – OTPS. There are only a handful of those. The pocket shrine is really reserved for Mr A. In the past I have only cheated on him…

RA Pocket Shrine 232/? – A-dayum

Let’s start the week with a little shrine smile. It’s Monday and I need to work. An article about woollen hats is waiting to be written. And an online test for a prospective job is also looming. As usual, I am procrastinating. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed in lockdown. But I am telling myself…

Shrine Update

Today is one of those days where I am fiddling around with what I call “replacement activities” – because I am procrastinating over the job I really need to do. I need to write an article about skiwear for my job… And so I have started off this morning with updating the shrine gallery on…

RA Pocket Shrine 230/? – Kiss with Confidence

Today is the first day of spring. In Ireland. Yes, officially. It’s St Brigid’s Day, and also the Celtic feast of Imbolc (the spring festival). This year I am opting to go for the Irish way of counting the seasons. Cos frankly, after this winter, with the darkness, the cold, the stress and the covid,…
