Then on Saturday Craig was stricken with a stomach bug and to top it all off my mobile phone died a horrible death and turned itself into a brick - which wasn't really tragic but certainly inconvenient. And then today, the first sunny weekend day in ages, I awoke with a raging head cold - full on runny nose, watering eyes, body aches and burning throat.
So yeah, really shitty weekend for us all. They say these things come in threes, and I think we are pushing sixes now so I am looking forward to some reprieve soon.
It is Seth's leg that I am truly worried about, everything else is just blip on the radar compared to that. We return to the doctor's yet again (becoming regular faces down there) on Tuesday and I am hanging all of my hopes and prayers on some good news. I am hoping that his secondary infection has just slowed the healing process down in his leg and that there isn't anything sinister going on, but I'm just not sure now. I have gone from concerned to worried to panicky in rapid succession and what looked like a light at the end of the tunnel turned out to be a train's headlights coming the other way.

If you like tales about hauntings and enjoy lots of 'jump out of your seat' scares in your horror, then you need to see 1408. Based on the Stephen King short story of the same name, 1408 is a gripping psychological horror surrounding the eerie goings on in one mysterious and unused room of a hotel.
Mike Enslin is a writer who publishes books that set out to debunk supernatural phenomena and hauntings. He travels to New York to spend the night at the Dolphin Hotel in the infamously haunted room 1408. Ignoring all of the managers concerns, intensely skeptical Mike decides that he will take on room 1408, soon realising that he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson bring some decent acting chops to the table here, and the overall effect is genuinely creepy and smartly intense. I really enjoyed every heart thumping minute of it, it's a sharp horror movie.
FINAL SAY: I recommend a stay in 1408.
