The Daily Teaser — 10-2-2016

It’s Wednesday … 

And today, I’m off back to work.

No, before you ask, I’m not complaining: even though I’ll be posting up both this, AND the Weekly Teaser, before I go.

Personally … 

I’m have to confess to being grateful, to an extent.   That I actually have a job.

Being in a year’s worth of employment, after so long off work … ?

Has really boosted my confidence …


But let’s move on, shall we?
