I did some tree pruning in the garden a couple of weeks ago, did something to my back and I’m now in agony with Sciatica.
Visits to the doctor have given me pain relief that’s not really touching it. I’ve not slept properly in days, moving from bed to floor to chair to find a comfortable position. My TENS machine goes everywhere, along with a tennis ball to press into the painful area.
Had some relief Wednesday from The Chinese Doctor. Massage and Acupuncture seems to have helped. I’m back today for more. Wish me well!
The pain has made sitting at the computer for editing difficult. A few minutes at the desk, on the floor for a while to relieve the pain, back for more editing and the cycle continues….
First up in the edit suite was a short doc with my hairdresser, Martin Strong, retiring after 45 years. I started seeing him from age 15 or so, and returned to him when I moved back to Sheffield. A lovely chap and I wish him well for the future.
I went for my final trim last week. Here’s his story…..
Next up is a new video of The Yorkshire Teabaggers in rehearsal. We met Monday and I sat when I needed to, used the mic stand for support whilst standing and managed to get through it. Follow us on Facebook for the latest gigs and videos!
Hoping to return to full back health very soon!!!!
A big night for me, a couple of my short films get a public screening at the Showroom in Sheffield as part of The South Yorkshire Filmmakers Network Showroom Shortsevening.
Showing tonight will be What The Heck? Henderson’s Relish and The Yorkshire Teabaggers video for LARDY BUM.
It’s going to be a great experience for me to see them on a larger screen with a room full of strangers, so come along if you can, tonight, Tuesday 15 March 21:00, The Showroom Cinema, Paternoster Row, Sheffield S1, Main Bar, Length – 80 mins. And IT’S FREE!
If you can’t be there, then look up my shorts below on the largest screen you can!
I’ve also had the pleasure of an audio recording session today with my old chum Douglas Thorp. We last worked together many a year ago. As Doug says…
“David and I first crossed paths when I was a lily-livered art student at Sheffield City Polytechnic in the 80s. He played a mildly disturbed barber for my degree show film, which was shown throughout the land in one cinema. This brings us back together for the first time in 30 years.”
