This past week, I reached two milestones, one in life and one in blogging. Life: My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary this week. A lot has happened in that time --- job changes, moving across the country, three house purchases, two kids, family deaths and marriages. It hasn't always been what we've … Continue reading Milestones: Life & Blogging
My younger son and I went to see the National Theatre Live broadcast of King Lear, captured the same day in a small London theatre, the same one where Ian McKellen made his West End debut in 1964. I knew that McKellen would be playing Lear, but it was a surprise for me that Sinéad … Continue reading Theatre at the Movies: King Lear
This post takes me past the halfway point of the challenge at last -- at this rate I might be done by Christmas! Continued from here. K -- Have you met RA? Where? Have you got a photo to share? And what did you say to him? Unfortunately, I have not met RA. Well, I … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z: K to N
In case you were thinking about signing up for Audible Canada today (September 19 only) to take advantage of the 2 free audiobooks instead of 1 to start (details here), there is an added bonus. David Copperfield narrated by Richard Armitage is free today. So, you could actually get 3 free audiobooks! I just signed up for Audible … Continue reading “David Copperfield” is Free Today
I wonder if I can trick myself into thinking it's still summer, if I go back a month to my Toronto trip. Worth a try, although it's hard to be fooled after standing in the rain on the weekend watching my son's first rugby game of the season. The original reason for going to Toronto … Continue reading 2018 Vacation #2: Toronto, Ontario
With Richard Armitage doing so many audiobooks lately, I'm thinking that I may need to supplement my Audible UK subscription. Apparently, you can have a subscription with more than one Audible marketplace (country). I just noticed that until September 19, Audible Canada has a deal where you get 2 free audiobooks when you sign up … Continue reading Audible Deal to Sept 19
What a busy summer it's been, and now the rain has finally come! I just realized that it's been two months since I last posted about the RA Challenge! Before I get back to that, let me show you what I ordered from Etsy thanks to seeing them via Guylty's Weekly Roundup of Tumblr posts yesterday. Aren't they … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z: G to J
Isn't it time for fire season to be over yet? I mean, come on! It's September! Truly, what affects me in the city are just minor annoyances (although see below for how they totally messed up my plans yesterday), but I feel for the people where the fires have been burning. 2018 is now the … Continue reading Enough, already!
I can't believe it's September already! I've only seen four movies since Oceans 8. Three of them are good if you're into the subject/style of film, but the last one is so disgustingly misogynistic, I can't believe I sat through it. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again This was the second movie that my group … Continue reading Movies over the Summer
Three vacations in a summer! I can't remember when I last had that much time away. I'm a little behind in recounting my adventures, so I think I'll start first with my most recent trip, a mini-escape, while it's still fresh in my mind. Thanks to my Air Miles collecting, my hubby and I were … Continue reading 2018 Vacation #3: Parksville, B.C.
