Soothing Sunday: Richard Armitage Reclining Poll, July 26, 2016 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #789)

I’m up and breakfasted by 7:30am this fine Sunday morning and I had 9 hrs of sleep–but I woke up every 2 hrs. Not restful  So I could use a nap. Ha!   Then this purrrrfect image of Richard Armitage in character came in to my Facebook feed.

A. 2003–Richard Armitage (portraying Paul, Between the Sheets, 2003) looks so cuddly here that I want to nudge him over a bit and have a lie down. *wink* Image thanks to Richard Armitage France French Armitage Army


But that image started me thinking about the other Richard lying/reclining/slouching on a couch/bench/chaise/chair images that we have seen over the years. Though not beds, they certainly look comfy–especially with Richard on them. So here are a few more Richard Armitage reclining images for us to enjoy–in slightly chronological order, from the collections of Thanks!

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Very comfy post, best read while reclining on a sofa ;-)
    Little annotation because I had to laugh at “Klaus”. Yes, such a German name. But the character is called Heinz – also very German and even more old-fashioned than Klaus. :-)
