So today was not a particularly good day.
After the problem with my knee a few months ago, I’d thought that things were improving.
Physio has discharged me although I continue with the exercises.
My knee had reached a level where I was actually power walking again and really enjoying it.
However, I had a little setback at work on Saturday when I jarred my knee and got shooting pains again. Not to the extent of the original explosion in my knee but enough to make things uncomfortable.
Strong pain relief helped things ease off. My day off yesterday was spent relaxing and taking it easy and as I walked into work this morning things were feeling good.
It did not last and the shooting pain started to catch me at every small turn.
I ended up having to leave work early so I didn’t push it to the point where I was off my feet for another three weeks.
I’m not back into work until Thursday but I think a trip to the GP is now in order to get referred to someone to get it checked out properly.
Considering I never had an X-ray or a scan when the original injury happened, I think that now is the time.
So I spent the rest of the afternoon with my feet up and reading Tim Conigrave’s memoir ‘Holding the Man’
I’ve reached the point where his partner, John is going to die and I don’t think I can handle it, so I’m taking a cowardly break.
A bit of Tumbling was in order and I discovered some new images of Adam on the set of his new film project.
He is currently in Atlanta, Georgia filming ‘Logan Lucky’ with Daniel Craig and Channing Tatum.
I must admit to being a little surprised by the images.
Looks like his character is missing an arm!! But he’s still got his gorgeous hair.
Anyway, it suddenly occurred to me that between now and December 2017 I have ‘potentially’ 5 of Adam’s films to see with the potential of three of them to obtain on DVD.
‘Paterson’ which premiered in Cannes and has a UK release date of 25th November 2016.
Don’t know how wide the release may be and I may end up having to go to London to see it!
‘Silence’ should be seeing inital release in December but as yet there is no date for the UK and again I may have to go to London to see this one.
‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ is in pre-production but Terry Guilliam wants to have it ready for Cannes next year.
Then we have ‘Logan Lucky’ which is currently filming and is set for release in October 2017.
And of course we then have ‘Star Wars Ep VIII’ set for release Dec 2017.
It’s finished filming and is in post production. Expect me to rave about this one.
I can’t wait!!!
Kylo on his way to redemption but I fear for Hux!
Paterson, Silence and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote are the DVD probabilities and in fact in some cases I may only get to see them for the first time on DVD. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Right, time to suck it up and get back to this memoir!
