Postponed, Not Abandoned

Like a lot of you (I imagine), I received notification from ATG yesterday about my remaining tickets for Uncle Vanya.  That is good news for me – but probably will still provide a lot of disappointment for others who were travelling from farther away and will not be able to rearrange their travel plans as easily.…

RA Pocket Shrine 2015/? – Perfect

My slightly overhasty mail love project from last week has already shown some success. Two out of three letters have arrived at their destination in Italy. So much for my “lovely” post mistress telling me that no post is getting through to Italy. However, I still take the point that maybe other shipments by mail…

RA Pocket Shrine 214/? – Colossal

Let’s start the week with a bit of fun. I have stepped back from the computer a bit. It just brings me down to be online too much. Fiddling with paper and scissors, on the other hand, makes me happy. Also, temperatures have suddenly gone down again in Ireland, and typing at the computer gives…

Re. Happy Mail

A quick shot here because I just had some really important feedback. As much as a little cheering up by post is a nice gesture, our Italian friends do point out that a) postal services are delayed, and b) they are also over-worked because of food delivery etc. That’s a consideration I had not taken…

RA Pocket Shrine 213/? – Still Growing

Today I was the recipient of happy mail. Following Twitter over the last few days, I had already seen some lovely happy mail from Germany reach all over the world. Now it was my turn, and I was laughing as much as I was oohing and aahing over the lovely surprises Kate put into the…

Change of Plans – Dealings with ATG

This post could also be titled “Massive Disappointment”. I have just taken the executive decision to cancel my weekend trip to London – and UV – tomorrow. It wasn’t easy to come to a decision and even though my RLRA friend, with whom I was going to spend Friday to Sunday, as well as LoLo and…

Fangirl Is Ready for #UncleVanyaPlay – ‘Mach Was!’

Every time Herba and Die Pö announce a new ‘Mach Was!’ topic for their community creativity project, I enthusiastically scream “yes” – and then never get ’round to it. Not this time! I am getting ready for a trip to London to see Uncle Vanya next week. And I decided to make a few goodies to…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #5

So, where are we all with watching The Stranger? Is this weekend the cut-off point for spoilers? I am still holding back on details, but looking forward to talking more about it, soon. Thanks to the show, we are getting lots of promo interviews and clips at the moment. Tumblr is full of it, too, so…
