Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 14-6-2024 — Che.

14th June, 2024: Che.

Right … it’s Friday.

And I’ve got most of the medications I need.

I got ’em, yesterday.

But … ?

There’s always something, isn’t there?

It turns out that the Trulicity I was using … isn’t available.

From anywhere in town.


There’s manufacturing issues affecting it, and the alternatives.

Including Semaglutide, the wonder drug that’s the active ingredient in things like Ozempic and Wegovy.

Which means … ?

Right now, I’ve used my last Trulicity pen, this morning.

Frankly, until I have my next diabetic review — on Tuesday — I have no idea what to do … !

Bar sending an email!

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 13th June, 2024.

13th June, 2024.

Right … it’s Thursday!

Which, frankly, means I’m going to have to pick up medication, at some point!

Assuming the pharmacist has them.

Here’s hoping!


I’m going to surprise people: and tell you I’ve made up my mind about who to vote for in next month’s General Election.

The Greens.

They’ve finally released their manifesto, this year.

And … ?

Are promising to increase Universal Credit by some forty pounds a week.

Granted, given the way elections in the UK go, it’s unaffordable, unrealistic and never going to happen.


They’ve put money, albeit theoretical money, on the table: that tells me what they want to do for people in my shoes.

That’s not something I’ve seen in the Conservative or Liberal Democrat manifestos.

Nor expect to see in Labour’s, when they publish theirs.

It’s … 

Well … let’s just say politics can be unsurprising … 


Wednesday 12 June 2024

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 12-6-2024 — Helsinki

12th June, 2024: Helsinki.

Right … Wednesdays … 

Wednesdays means all sorts of things.

On this particular Wednesday?

It means I’m back at the dentist for the second day in a row: for a hygienist visit!

Gosh, the excitement!


I’m following election news.

Or, at least, have half an ear on it.

And … ?

In the news, this morning, tells us that a recently published report says that ‘Voter confidence at record low’.

Are we surprised?

At any rate … ?

It seems the Greens are to release their manifesto, today.

I’m looking forward to that.

Their position on unemployment benefits will be a decider for me.


JUST as a final thought … ?

I keep having an Instagrammer called YowieDeschanel float across my time line.

She’s a bit … hypnotic … … 

It’s the way her daisy wobbles, isn’t it … ?


Tuesday 11 June 2024

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 11th June, 2024.

11th June, 2024.

Right, then: it’s officially Busy Tuesday … !

Well, I say ‘busy’ … when I actually mean I have a dental check-up.

I’m just glad I’m not in one of the Dental Deserts the Local Government Authority’s been highlighting!


Did I mention it’s my sister’s birthday, tomorrow?

If you’d like to wish Anna a happy birthday, fell free,

The oddity?

Is that we’re celebrating with a finally meal, tonight: at a newly opened Japanese restaurant in Brentwood High Street.

That’s going to be an experience.

I’ve never had Japanese food in my life: and wouldn’t know how to use chopsticks if you paid me!

Any suggestions would be appreciated!


Yes: it was the start of Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference, yesterday: the Conference where Apple announces a whole range of new stuff!

OK: Apple’s new AI features — branded under the name Apple Intelligence — sound like they could be either useful: or a nightmare.

But hopefully won’t take up much space*.

About the only thing that caught my eye as being handy?

Were the new wind tiling features.

As someone with just one monitor?

That strikes me as useful!


Monday 10 June 2024

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 10th June, 2024.

10th June, 2024.

Right, then … Mondays!

I almost always have an early start on Mondays.

Because it’s the day of a weight management course I’m on.


I’ll have lost weight, today.

We’ll have to see.
