Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser —  7th April, 2018.

7th April, 2018.

No, really: it’s WAY too early in the morning to be this early in the morning.


I’m actually looking forward to next Saturday.

Granted, I’d be up as early: but I’m pencilled in to be OFF the day before.

Which means I’d be able to get an equally early night.

Right at the moment … ?

That’s got a lot of appeal!


Let’s move on, shall we?

And a song …

Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a good day.

*        This one, you mean, Debbi?   I’ll be honest, it sounds … odd … (Lord knows what I’ll be catching next: I DO know I’ve a copy of The Boys from the Black Stuff sitting around.   It’s supposed to be on of THE dramas from the Eighties,  and Bernard Hill’s† finest moment.)

Hi, Paul. I was travelling back to Barcelona and things got a bit delayed, although I'm finally here. Now, I "just" need to try and get things organised here. I love Billie. I reviewed a book about the history of brands and although I knew Kellog was a bit weird... Well, he was weirder than I had thought.
