Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 1-12-2016

I have to admit, I’m mildly tired.

But there you go: that’s what happened when you have a late night.

I’m not complaining, too much, though.

I managed to get a few videos done for the blog.

AND … ?

Well, I also managed to sit down with the most recent episode of Dr Who spin off, Class.

Yes, I’ve two or three other series lined up.

Who doesn’t, in this age of binged-watched, box-sets?

But Class … ?

Is a bit special.


But let’s move on shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with Olga scoring ten out of ten, and Debbi scoring nine.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video …

And this song … 

Have a good day … 

*        I know what you mean about organised, Olga! Christmas, work, social life, blogging: Ha!   I don’t know how I manage!   But the IBS … ?   As I said to Debbi, yesterday, it wasn’t so much the food, that was the issue, as the stress: OK, an individual episode would be triggered by, I don’t know, a sausage, a chicken burger … but wasn’t necessarily the underlying cause.

†        Yeah, I think I know there shape of THAT one, Debbi!!!   I always meant to ask how the Dystonia therapy was going: I seem to recall you saying you were looking at some form of Acupuncture therapy … ?
