Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 15th July, 2019

15th July, 2019.

Yes: I’m officially expecting news, today.

If you recall?

I had an interview on Friday: at a local betting shop.

Hopefully?   The manager will be phoning me, today, to let me know if I’ve got the job.

I’m … 

Well, it would be nice to get it: I felt my interview was fairly competent.

I don’t know for sure, though.

I’ll find out, today …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 14-7-2019: Vive la France

14th July, 2019.

It’s a Sunday … 


And frankly?

Well, my emotional state, this morning?

Is not necessarily the best it could be.

I had a CT scan on Thursday


I’m dreading the results.

Which could be serious.

Serious or otherwise, I can only take the attitude that we’re encouraged to take at various Twelve Step groups.

Taking it a day at a time, in other words … 

Lord, but that’s a challenge …

Years and Years — Series 1— Episode 1.5 — A Review

13th July, 2019.

Isn’t it always the way … ?

That — if you are out of work? — you have a lot of time to fill.

You’ve possibly already worked that out, though.

You’ve possibly also worked out that I’m in something of an emotional state.

Waiting for hospital results will do that to a body.

On the up side … ?

I’m expecting to hear from a potential employer: about a job.

Being caught on the horns of two very different phone calls?

Well … 

Who wouldn’t be a wreck … ?


Saying that … ?

Saying that, I am trying to keep occupied.

This blog keeps me occupied: as do video games.

I have to admit, I’ve gotten quite far, in Sonic the Hedgehog 2!

Those help … 

As do TV shows.


In between the frantic stop in the social whirl?

I’ve seen another episode of Year and Years.


Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 13-7-2019: The Siege.

13th July, 2019.

What with one thing and another … ?

I think I may have issues with my health.

In fact, I know I do.

But … ?

I have to admit, there’s not much I can do: until the results get in.

But, just as an upside … ?

I had an interview, yesterday: at a local betting shop.

Whether I get it?

Is a whole other matter.

But it would give my mental health a boost.


While I’m at it … ?

I’m — obviously — not working at the moment.

So I’m short of cash: as are many others.

So … ?

Well, that does encourage scammers: who offer fraudulent grants on social media.

Not something I’d seen: but something I’d been made aware of, by this piece on the BBC’s news site.

I’m thankful they did.

Anything that can highlight this is a good thing … 


Years and Years — Series 1— Episode 1.4 — A Review

12th July, 2019.

Yes: it’s true.

For the first time in a couple of weeks, I’ve actually had a functioning interview.

For a job at a local betting shop.

The interview part seemed to go well: although I did have to mention that I’d need to to have to arrange my shifts, around various hospital visits.

Which didn’t seem totally unacceptable.

At least, from the sneaky look I got of the form the interview was filling … ?

The ‘Pros’ list seemed longer that the ‘Cons’ one: let’s put it like that.

Either way?

I’ll hear by Monday.


I’ll get something positive out of a years that’s — thus far — been nasty.


One thing that HAS been good … ?

Is the amount of really good TV I’ve found, this year.

Time off … ?

Can do that to a body, I think.

At any rate, I’ve been watching the Russell T. Davies penned Year and Years.

And, yes: good seems to be the thing.
