RA Pocket Shrine 125/? – Classic

Invoices have been sent, the Kindle is loaded, the flights have been checked-in. Only one thing remains before I go on my holiday tomorrow: One little parting gift in the shape of a RAPS reveal. That’s if a RAPS post can be considered a gift. This RAPS was a quick shot from the hip, a gift for…

Armitage Weekly Round-up 2016/25

[Warning. Extremely rare political rant preceding the round-up. I am not even apologising. It has to be said.] I knew that today was going to be sad.

Hello? Anybody here or are you all staring hawk-like at Twitter and monitoring certain websites in order to snag coveted tickets? Well, have a short break and entertain yourselves with the weekly loot from Tumblr. Some nice stuff over there – but boy-oh, I have just realised that we may look forward to a veritable RAfest…
