2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #11

It’s been a good long time, but yesterday I was back volunteering at MoLI for the first time. It was almost strange to be in there without a mask hiding half my face, and speaking to the visitors also felt way more personal. I got such a buzz out of chatting to a young American…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #10

The weekend has begun and I am not quite where I want to be. Work-wise. I have a bit of a list of projects that I have to tick off, but instead I spent the morning chatting with our friend from Ukraine. Well, he‘s not *from* Ukraine but he used to work there. I mentioned…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #9

My great annual Social Media hiatus has started. That is a bit of a misnomer, as I am only staying away from Twitter. I haven’t been active on FB for years, so no need to rein myself in there, and IG is also not a major time-thief for me. So, since Ash Wednesday I have…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #8

Good day to you. Hope you haven’t been blown away by Storms Dudley and Eunice. Northern and Central Europe got a bit of a battering these last couple of days.

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #5

It’s February!!! *phew* We’ve left the darkest month behind and are heading towards the light. Or that’s how I see it. Have you noticed how it’s a little brighter every afternoon? I’ve even had a couple of days with “lie-ins” until 8am, and it is not dark at that time anymore ☀️. Next port of…

2022 Armitage Weekly Round-up #4

Uh, ugh, I am frustrated. My current craft project has just gone tits up and it literally looks shite. Meh. Let’s hope, this week’s round-up will cheer me – and you – up. New fan fic on the way to you, courtesy of i-did-not-mean-to. Here is a teaser for a Francis Dolarhyde fan fic Staying…
