Lord Of The Rings

Went over to Jamie’s in Sheffield yesterday to watch the final Lord of The Rings film – and it’s excellent! At three and a half hours, it’s quite a long time to sit in the cinema – the advantage of the DVD versions are that you can take a bit of a break when you change the discs over! But it was really good, and I was surprised that the cinema was packed, considering it was Boxing Day!

It’s been great having a few days off work, and I’ve still got tomorrow before I go back… it’s been ages since I’ve had a few days off together! Hopefully I’ll be able to get all my work finished on Monday and Tuesday, so I can take New Year’s Eve off to pack for our skiing trip which starts the next day! I can’t believe that this time next week I’ll be in Switzerland!!

Learning to ski…

Just a quick update… had a ski lesson down at the Snowdome last week, which was pretty smart! It was really hard work, but I did end up being able to do a snowplough!! I drove back up to Manchester after my lesson, and had to go straight to work to do the final edit of MUTV’s Christmas TV commercial, and ended up staying in the office until 4am because of the amount of stuff that needed doing! When I woke up the next morning, I couldn’t move a muscle – my calves were really sore, and I was struggling to walk!! If that’s what I’m like after two hours of skiing, I dread to think what it’ll be like after 6 days of it!!!
