2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #19

Many thanks first of all for the interesting comments and replies you left on my fandom post the other day. It is always interesting to hear your views on our fandom. There were many replies both here and on Twitter, and in some cases I was (unhappily) surprised to read about struggles and insecurities that…

2021 Armitage Weekly Round-up #18

An hour until Eurovision 2021. I might as well use the time to get this week‘s round-up out. Not that I am heavily invested in the song contest. I usually ignore it, but everything is different this year, so for the lack of better things to do, we are watching the music contest, not least…

The stupor is over! My modus operandi over the last couple of weeks was mainly characterised by rage. I wasn’t in a good place to write. And so I didn’t. Everything just enraged me so much, thanks to the frustration of powerlessness and despair I feel myself in currently. I won’t spoil the intro with it…

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…

No way, it’s Saturday, and Sonja posts a round-up 😂. Miracles happen… Is it the sunshine (although still cold outside), or the prospect of asparagus with diced smoked ham this evening, that has dialled my mood and energy to eleven? The week started tough, with a trip to A&E Sunday evening. Those of you who…

Armitage Weekly Round-up #13

Oooh, number 13. Lucky number? In any case, a day late because I was simply lazy yesterday ☺️. Rather than sit at the computer, I was making a journal for my 17 yo niece whose birthday is coming up in May. It’s quite different in style to my usual vintage aesthetic, but I actually like…

Armitage Weekly Round-up #12

Happy Easter everybody. The second Easter in lockdown. Who would’ve thought that, this time last year? It’s been tough, but now there is somehow a silver lining (which is quite fitting for the day that is in it – which all of you who believe, no doubt are feeling particularly strongly). And as someone who…
