Other Things I’ve Been Up To

It’s been an odd week for me, I’ve only been at work for 2 days, so it’s been quiet and quick. Originally on the Monday just gone I was supposed to be seeing Foo Fighters, but that was cancelled and I had Monday and Tuesday off for that. Back to work Wednesday and Thursday but off Friday as my rotation day off. It feels like the week has absolutely flown by and I don’t really know what I’ve done with it.

Today we finally got to watch something on Paramount Plus that wasn’t Cheers. For those that didn’t read last week’s post, I signed up for Paramount Plus, but the app doesn’t work on my TV very well. Anything I load up just has an endless spinning circle and then an error message. For some reason Cheers works though. Today we managed to watch the documentary: Oasis Knebworth 1996. Which I thought was really good, showing some footage of the band at the shows, while also having fans talking about their experiences of getting tickets, travelling to the event, and the gig itself. Star Trek still won’t load on Paramount Plus though, which was the reason I signed up in the first place – maybe one day.

Before that I spent a good portion of Friday in the back garden, which we had let get a little overgrown and messy. I don’t like gardening, never have and probably never will, but it was just getting too messy. It took about 90 minutes in total, as it’s a pretty big and very steep garden. It looks presentable now, but I know it’ll grow back again quicker than I’d like it to.

More generally I’ve been reading John G Dyer’s latest book, ‘Elbert’, which I’ve been enjoying. I was struggling to read after being ill earlier in the year and it’s taken me far longer to read this book that I’d like, but I am finally getting into the full swing of it. I’m around half way and expect to have it finished in the next few days. I’m also hoping to get some of my own writing done. I realise that I haven’t published ‘Teddy’ on here, which I finished writing close to a year ago. I just wanted to change the ending slightly, which I will do later this week.

I don’t really have any plans for which films I’ll be watching and reviewing over the next few days. I know Thor is out this week, and I will be watching that one day one (already have my tickets booked), but I’m not sure beyond that. It will probably just be watching older films that I’ve wanted to see for a while.

That’s all from me for now. Thanks for reading and until next time,

  1. The wife and I have our tickets for Thor also. Hopefully, your Star Trek-Paramount + situation will get resolved shortly. And yes, sometimes a week goes by and you look back and say…geez, that was fast.
