So my PA booked two weeks off, usually this would be a big problem for me as I’d miss out on getting up and going out, in the summer it’s even worse as not being able to get out in the sunshine sends me into very low moods. This time was different though, I’ve managed[…]
Most of this post was written last year (2017) shortly after filming my scenes for Requiem but hasn’t been posted until today due to my non-disclosure agreement. I appear as Kendrick’s son in episodes four and six. There may be spoilers ahead! (I have tried to keep them to a minimum though) The Offer A[…]
The weather didn’t look too bad on Tuesday so I decided to risk visiting Dyrham Park, I try to do shorter visits to places in the colder months as wrapping up in the many layers necessary restricts my movement and sitting in a wheelchair can become very uncomfortable when you are so bundled up.
I have had a busy few weeks, I’m getting a lot better since my hospital stay, I’ve had a few anxiety issues and the start of a panic attack but that’s probably to be expected. My throat still feels very tight at times and there always that fear in the back of my mind that it will[…]
Last week I saw a picture on Twitter of St. Edwards Church in Stow-on-the-Wold, it looked like something out of a fairy-tale so I did some research and found out some people think it was the inspiration for Tolkien’s entrance to Moria! The next day I headed for Stow-on-the-Wold and took some pictures of the church, after this it occurred to me that I lived in the middle of Tolkien country and there must be lots of places nearby that inspired Tolkien’s stories. So finding Middle Earth has become my project over the winter, I’ll be travelling around trying to take some fantasy style pictures of Tolkienesque places, maybe I’ll spot some Hobbits on my journey, I just wish I had a grey wizard to guide me.
MCM Comiccon November 2017 was my first comiccon since hospital and I wasn’t sure if it would be too exhausting or if I would feel ill so I just booked one day and hoped for the best.
The reason I’m writing this now is twofold, firstly after giving my last mental health workshop I suddenly realised I hadn’t once been asked about my mental health during my recent hospital stay, and secondly a talk at the Action Duchenne International Conference I attended at the weekend. I have been working with a group[…]
So another year has passed, not the best year and being 42 I had hoped to find the answer to life, the universe and everything, instead I got locked in our new van for an hour on the way to a rubbish holiday at the beginning of the year and ended it being rushed to[…]
