Where Were You?

Dear Richard,

It hasn’t escaped my notice that these messages are like events which become fixtures in time usually throwing my mundane life into sharp relief such as “I was munching popcorn and watching Monday Night Football when news of Lennon’s death…” Okay, so my example is morbid. What do you expect in the middle of the night? By the way, I was wiping the mouth of a puking child when the message came, and now I’m going back to bed and maybe sleep late tomorrow, er, later today.

One of your bleary eyed fans who has a grin on her face

P.S. The message was lovely, and I may actually break down and request an autographed picture from you. Yes, so easy to say at this time of night.

If you haven’t seen it, the message is on RichardArmitagetOnline.Com, and give Annette some love for being so consistent in relaying messages.


  1. THANK YOU for putting up Richard’s message! A simple, lovely, slightly humourous message, as usual.
    Off to make stuffing, put stubborn straight hair in curlers for hours, niece’s party this eve. Cart turkey (which weighs almost as much as my fat cat) to son’s tomorrow…So in purdah from RA and blogs till Boxing Day, probably. Is Mr. A on the M1 just now, heading for Leicester to be fed and sleep, and relax with the family?

    Merry Christmas, Frenz, and all who pop in today!

  2. Annette actually put it up, and I’m grateful she hangs in with this.

    Merry Christmas to you, Fitz!!

  3. Actually, I was cleaning up pee from an accident. Messy bodily function clean ups go better with a little acknowledgment from Sugar Britches, right?

  4. I was awaken by a leg cramp and then couldn’t fall back asleep. Those are so painful but then easily forgotten after reading such a sweet message. .

    I have a smile on my face reading Frenzy’s letter to Mr. A. You are such a good letter writer. LOL. Common, request the picture, you know you want to.

  5. I had fallen asleep watching TV after my exhausting first trip to town since the accident on Nov. 2 and woke up shortly after midnight. I ended up completing a Sloth Fiction installment and watched sappy but enjoyable Christmas movies on Hallmark Movie Channel. And then I saw Jane’s comment on a blog saying the message was up at
    Annette’s. Needless to say, I hastened over to read it.

    I laughed. I cried. I thought once again about what a really lovely human being he is and that I truly feel as if Christmas had already come for me. :D

  6. Oh, it’s almost 3 here in the afternoon and I am TOTALLY going to break down and ask for an autographed picture, as soon as I figure out the mechanics of such a request as I’ve never done anything like that before. He is so lovely.

  7. A message from RA and all feels right in the world.
    I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a truly wonderful New Year.
    Remember…………….no matter where you are life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile…..and RA does make us all smile.
    All The Best,

  8. I was asleep. Is that lame? :)
