Trials and Tribulations

Iíve had a few bad weeks recently, in early December I recreated a scene from ďHome Alone 2Ē, as I slipped on some black ice, I went up in the air and landed heavily on my back, which damaged my neck and back muscles, which has meant that I can only stand or walk for short times, Iíve got exercises that are gradually helping. Iím not sure if it was the fall, but I started having troubles with my fingers, swelling up, and going red, they are very painful and now Iíve had loads of blood tests, and X-Rays to come, but the Doctor thinks it could be some kind of Arthritis starting, just something else to contend with, still none of this will make me give up, in fact itís made me more determined to carry on, such is life!

New Stock Items

As usual a nice mix of lengths of films, thereís some new features on the list, as well as many new short subjects, so why not have a look! Iíve still got a number of Bonum 200í spools, Iíd class them as new old stock, they are not sealed, and do not have the paper cover, but they are brand new as the plastic pegs inside the reels have never been broken off, I think Iíve got about 15 or so, Iím selling them at £7 each or 3 for £20 (plus p&p). I also have four brand new and sealed Gepe 200í reels at £9 Each (plus p&p)
