New Safety Boots

At the end of March, I started a new job and I recently treated myself to a new pair of safety boots. It’s been slightly surreal, doing a similar job to my previous one but working in a different environment, after almost six years with one company.

Change isn’t always a bad thing, as much as we may sometimes fear it.

Two more recent films; both of which, I was quite disappointed to have missed out on viewing at the cinema.

District 9 and Fury

Has it really been a month to the day since I last wrote about a set of DVDs I’d been watching?!

You’d think I might have a lot of catching up to do… When in fact, I haven’t had an awful lot of time or energy to commit to keeping up with what’s been falling through my door (yes, sitting down requires a degree of effort).

It was about a week ago that I returned the two rented DVDs that I’m going to write about briefly this evening.

Cloud Atlas

I’m already late, once again, in writing about some of the films I’ve enjoyed most recently but this is another case of one you’ve almost certainly heard of and the other which may be unknown but deserves to be up there with the best.
