2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #37

There we have it. Dublin is back in lockdown, more or less. Despite warnings and requests for cooperation, the rising Covid infection numbers did not motivate people to take more care and keep their distance. From yesterday, Dublin has been placed under stricter restrictions than the rest of the country. We are back to working…

Goodness! With all that excitement going on, I almost forgot the weekly round-up. And meh, I just noticed that Richard has already tweeted his birthday thanks. Um – fairly early in the day. Thank you for all the birthday wishes, the donations, the fundraising, the auctions and gifts. I feel very special. XRA pic.twitter.com/Wvva9JL8lZ —…

We had to dump our collected recycling – and of course what happens is that Sonja picks up new rubbish while at the recycling yard 😂. Someone had thrown out…

Hello hello hello! A week has passed and I am back from my mini break. I am going to indulge in a little travel report here, so those of you who have no interest in sitting through someone else’s holiday pictures – no offense taken, I totally understand! – please just scroll down to where…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #27

Good morning, good morning! It has been months and months since I last posted a round-up in the usual 8am GMT+1 slot. So much for lockdown providing more time for hobbies… For this edition of the round-up, I have gone back to my usual MO of compiling it Friday night and then scheduling it so…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #26

The silence on my blog this week may actually speak volumes. In a good way. Yesterday I had my call with the people who offered me a new job, and the plan for our cooperation is now cut and dry. I am starting my work this weekend with a translation, but after that we are…
