SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS

It’s a sad state of affairs when the most exciting thing I have to look forward to is the release of Peter Rabbit on Bluray on Monday!!

Yes, yes…. it’s a beautiful film.
It’s hilariously funny.
Beautifully animated.
And yes….. Domhnall Gleeson is in it.

That said, half of my family are going to be travelling to fuerteventura over the next week for my cousins wedding!
I am absolutely gutted that I can’t go but after last year in Italy for my Brother’s wedding, it just wasn’t something we could afford again this year.

So, I am plodding along with work and Uni.
I got my first presentation out of the way last Monday. I just have to wait for the result in a couple of weeks.
Until then, I am starting on the next presentation and taking a look at the essays due in October.
I have managed to get some annual leave in late August although I’ve just realised that my next presentation is due right in the middle!! Typical.

Anyway, work has been going well. Extremely busy, but well.
I’m feeling more and more confident in what I do on a daily basis so this Uni course is definitely having some sort of affect.

That’s my life at the moment.
Eat, work, uni, sleep, repeat.

There is the occasional break for something different. Usually a trip to the cinema but last weekend was the 40th anniversary of the Bedford River Festival.
I wasn’t planning on going because I was working on the Sunday but we were up early on Saturday to take two of the kids to work and then just felt like doing something so me and Ian decided to spend the afternoon wandering around the music stages and enjoying the weather.

Murron actually ended up joining The Bear Bedford’s raft race team on Sunday and won!

Life is just plodding along with the occasional break at the moment, so not much to report.
Medical conditions are all in limbo waiting for appointments and treatments.
Ian is still not able to drive very far, so his treatment can’t come quick enough! But thankfully work are very understanding and he’s getting help from a colleague getting into work when needed and he can also do some work from home.

I can’t really report on much more right now.
Nothing is happening.
Adam has two films due. BlacKkKlansman is due for release on August 24th and looks like it’s going to be really good but The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is still in a kind of limbo because of legal issues. Even though it’s had quite a wide release across Europe, it still has no release date here in the UK.
He is Currently filming another Jim Jarmusch movie in New York and the third part of the current Star Wars trilogy is due to start filming any day now.

I continue to follow his career with interest.
It’s one of the few things that puts a smile on my face these days.

That said, I think I’m going to have an early night with an Adam film.
Just have to decide what one!!
Decisions, decisions.
