Last week was my Birthday, it’s always a tough week as my Nan passed away a few hours before my Birthday several years ago, the first few years afterwards I didn’t celebrate at all, now I have sadness but try to enjoy it. At the beginning of last week was my last mindful photography[…]
A couple of months ago Brendan Coyle sent me a message to say he would be appearing in a play in Bath, The Price, and did I want to catch up with him? It was July 2017 when we filmed our scenes together for Requiem so I was very eager to see him and have a catch up.
I had been debating whether to attend LFCC 2018 or not, it’s a great event but funds are low (an entry ticket plus parking alone costs over £50), carers not always reliable and I’m not overly keen on Olympia as a venue accessibility wise. I eventually decided I’d buy parking as I could get that[…]
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.
