Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 20-6-2021: West Virginia.

20th June, 2021.


Yep: it’s official.

I’m slightly knackered.

After managing to finish reviewing a film I saw on Friday.

I have to say, In Fabric’s a very good film to watch.


But, lord!   Finishing a video review, that late … ?

Well … ?

I’m not getting any younger, let’s put it like that.

In Fabric — A Review

18th June, 2021.


OK: you’ve watched the introductory video, haven’t you … ?

I hope so.

If you have, you’ll realise that — at the time I made the thing — I hadn’t made my mind up about what to watch.

Amongst other options?

I had both Lucas’ THX1138, and Besson’s Léon: The Professional.

Something I may catch, another time.

I’ve settled for the Peter Strickland directed Giallo-esque, In Fabric.

Yes: I’m going to bed, and carrying this post on, tomorrow.

But, yes: I think I’ve just seen something amazing …

Yes: it’s true.

I had the washing machine engineers out, yesterday.

From a local company called Mackfields, so you know.

Their engineers — two of them, I should add — turned up early: and immediately diagnosed the issue.

It’s dead!

Its a dead washing machine: bereft of life, it rests in peace!

They’re coming back on Thursday, at three, to replace it.

Hopefully?

The new one will last a few years … 

~≈Ê≈~

Oh, just as a thought … ?

I managed to catch the indie Brit flick, In Fabric, last night.

It’s both impressive: and strange.

And has one hell of a soundtrack … !

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 18-6-2021: Waterloo

18th June, 2021.


Right … I had my surgery call, twice, yesterday.

The first time … ?   Was to let me know my thyroid medication would be increased: and to let me know that the pharmacist should be calling today, at the latest.

The second time … ?   Was to let me know the phone number for the people who carry out the diabetic eye check: I can chase that up, myself.

Except, of course … stuff … !

Given the cost of making calls on my landline?   I’d drag my ageing carcass up Warley Hill — with a discreet piece of paper and a pencil, tucked away — and phone them to make an appointment.

Which I’m happy to do.

Except, of course, it’s raining … heavily.

I’m going to have to find somewhere … dry … !

~≈🌳≈~

I’ve got to confess, I’ve been talking to reporter, Piers Meyler.

About various things.

About the phone coverage in the area.   And about access to the building I live in.

I don’t know when that article will be released: the last I knew, Piers was waiting for a couple of phone calls.

I’m assuming one will be from Clarion Housing: my landlords.

Whatever: I do know it’s something I and my neighbours are looking forward to.

One of my neighbours … ?

Has managed to mention this piece from ITV’s news site.

There’s a similar piece — from the end of May — on the BBC’s site.

Damon House is not the only place having issues …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 17th June, 2021

17th June, 2021.


Yes: it’s officially.

The day I think going out to get a loaf — or possibly some milk — is a good idea?

It’s raining.

Well … 

At least … it’s rained over night: and threatening more.

All this when you’re expecting a phone call from your GP’s surgery?

Well … 

~≈Ë≈~

Oh … just as a quick thought … ?

Piers, bless him, has had another article published: about the issues we’re having with phone masts in the area.

You can find it, here.

Hopefully?

His piece about the keys will also be published soon.

~≈Ë≈~

Oh, I’ve JUST had the duty doctor from my surgery, phone.   She’s going to get the in-house pharmacist to call me, to discuss my sugar levels.

She’s also upping my thyroid medication: to 150mg a day.

Hopefully, that will help with the weight loss!
