Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 10-9-2017

Ooooh … 

But that’s better … 

It’s a Sunday morning … and one where I’m doing my usual eleven ’til five shift.

So, of course, today … ?

I’ve got up at six: and will be getting home at six.

My points?
  • I’ll probably am going to need a lot of caffeine, by the time I get home.
  • I’ve got to iron some shirts, later!
Yep: it’s a fun Sunday evening, ahead!

I hope the trains behave better today, Paul. Now all the wedding guests and the happy couple have left, and I'm here with the girls (the three dogs) I hope to be able to contribute a bit more. It's a big property and I've started teaching again, so we'll see...
Take care! It's nice to be back here!
