BEAUTIFUL DAY

What a beautiful start to this bank holiday weekend.
The sun is shining, the daffodils are smiling and it truly feels like spring has sprung.

What to do today?
I have no real plans but I am feeling inspired to possibly go and start tidying up the garden.
Something I’m not particularly relishing this year after the issues I’ve had with my knee.
I’ve bought myself a kneeler to assist me in the task.
I just need to remember to take it slowly and take regular breaks because I have a tendency to get just a bit too stuck into things when I’m gardening and then regret it at the end of the day.

Tomorrow, I have just promised to help Dharma ‘gut’ her bedroom. Oh the joy!!
It’s not actually that bad. It’s just got to a point where she needs someone to help her decide what to keep and what to get rid of.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to this weekend for another reason, not because it’s ‘chocolate day’ on Sunday but because I’m going to see Batman vs Superman in IMAX on Sunday.
I’m really looking forward to the fact that Marjorie is coming along with us.
Our budding media/performing arts student is going to freak!
So, today and tomorrow I’m trying to stay clear of spoilers on the internet.
I made the mistake of looking at some press reviews which weren’t too promising but I should know by now that the ‘fan’ reviews very rarely match the ‘press’ reviews so I want to make up my own mind about the film.

So, a few hours in the garden, a roast dinner and a couple of movies it is today then.

Look at that…. I got through this blog without a single mention of a certain movie and person I’ve become obsessed with over the last three months!!

REAL WORLD UPDATE

I’m sure it’s been quite noticeable in the last week that I have been living in a fantasy world.
My life has been dedicated to movies and trawling the internet and all things Star Wars and Adam Driver and as much as I LOVE to do all that, I have been going a little stir crazy.

The reason has been because of forced rest because of a knee injury.
I’m happy to report that things are getting better.
I’m not in constant pain anymore. I only get the occasional tweek when I’m on uneaven surfaces or going up and down stairs.
My main issue now is that the knee feels quite unstable and I’m still using a walking stick if I go out for any reason.

As I have been going a little stir crazy, tomorrow is going to be a treat.
Stevenage Cinema are having a day of IMAX specials.
They are showing several films, back to back, that are no longer showing in the cinemas.
After seeing Star Wars in the IMAX a couple of weeks ago and being completely blown away by it, we are taking the opportunity to go and see two of our recent favourites.
Jurassic World and The Martian.
We are going to make a day of it and go out for breakfast first.
The films we have chosen are literally back to back so we will be walking out of one, doing a quick refresh and then walking straight into the next one.
We will be finishing the day off with dinner.

So, a nice day out doing what we love.
A day that’s not going to put too much pressure on my knee as I will be sitting through most of it, but it will be a test to see how my knee will cope with the little bit of walking I am going to have to do. It’s more than I’ve done in almost two weeks!

Can’t wait!
