Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 7-9-2016

You know … It’s day three of joblessness … 

And I manage avoid an interview!

One of the manager for a local post office literally phoned me, yesterday: to see if I could come in for an interview.

I said ‘No’: as I wanted to write a letter of complaint to my former employers, about the way things had gone.

I’m KICKING myself!   As the job sounded ideal!

Once I’d finished what I had to do?   I managed to phone the interviewer, to let her know I’d be available for the rest of the day.

But lord knows what’s going to happen, there … !


Another thing to worry about?   At least, to be kicking myself about?

Is the finances.

I’m now claiming benefits: and due to have my initial claim interview, tomorrow.

I can live with that.


Only a few days ago, I’d’ve been looking forward to the 5th November: as the day sees the release of the completely animated version of The Power of the Daleks.

The long lost story is a Dalek one — obviously — and notable for being Troughton’s first.

I’m mildly gutted!

But hoping a minor miracle happens, to let me afford it … 


Let’s move on, shall we?   Before I get too depressing!

“You always get told how important the premiere and doing the press is, but I have suspicions.”
Toby Jones, born 7th September, 1966.

And this tune …

Have a good day.

*      Oh, an app?   Could be a problem, Olga, as I don’t have the coding skills!   It helps if you’ve got the mentality of a chess player!   But publishing ebooks … ?   Could WELL be the way to go … 

†        It has been a while, hasn’t it, Debbi?   (We’re starting to sound like an old married couple: DON’T TELL RICK I SAID THAT!!!!!)

I hope you get a call back, Paul. I know there are services that offer the creation of Apps for books (so far more for interactive books for kids), and Fiverr might be a good option...
Good luck!
