Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 14-12-2017: Venus

Good lord … 

It’s true … 

It’s been six months since Grenfell Tower went up in smoke: the Memorial is being held today

That fire saw the deaths of seventy-one people: with the survivors still (mostly) un-rehomed, and traumatised.


I can remember seeing Grenfell go up, on the news: and being deeply shocked by it.

After all, there were people in there.

Right now?

I can only hope the service being held help those survivors find some closure.

I suspect it won’t.

I suspect nothing will.

Bar — possibly — an enquiry result that really helps find out what happened.

And the survivors being re-homed in their area: soon‡.

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 13-12-2017: Our Dick

Blast … !

My alarm didn’t go off!

Thankfully, it’s a day off.

And thankfully?

It doesn’t affect my ability to collect any Amazon deliveries that choose to turn up.

But still … 

DAMN … !

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 12th December, 2017

Hmmm … 

I’m slightly worried: as we’ve had the coldest night of the year, so far.

It’s worrying … because, of course, we’ve had the coldest night of the year, last night.

Coming home from work?   I almost went over several times: on icy patches of black that had built up, overnight.

NOT reassuring if you have to go to work in the afternoon.

I can only hope the gritters have been out.

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 11th December, 2017

You know, I’m just having a look at the BBC’s news pages.


I’m not surprised at some of the items I’m seeing.

Right now?

There’s headlines warning motorists of treacherous conditions.

Which isn’t that surprising.

I’m looking at the weather app on my tablet … which is telling me it’s 1°, out there, and showering heavily.

All that … ?

All that, because of yesterday’s snow … 

Dratted stuff* … 


Stranger Things: Series 2 — Episodes 7, 8 & 9: Chapter 7 The Lost Sister, Chapter 8 The Mind Flayer & Chapter 9 The Gate.

10th December, 2017.

Can I make a confession?

Right now?   I don’t have the heating on.

It’s warm enough as it is.   With just a small electric heater on.

I have had the heating on, though: as a result of the snow that’s been falling all day, and covered a lot of the UK.

It’s not that often I do that.


I’m definitely feeling the cold.


At any rate?

I was expecting to head for a relative in Kent, today.

But couldn’t, because of the weather.

That forced me to stay at home: on a day off.

A day that saw me venturing — carefully — out to pick up some more Christmas cards, as a result of that cancelled visit.

And doing some housework, instead: along side writing a couple of Teasers, writing a few cards … 

And catching the last three episodes of Stranger Things, series 2.
