Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 25-7-2016

Oh, BUGGER … !

If you’ll excuse the language!


I forgot to set my alarm, last night!

Which means I’ve started writing this post, late.

I HATE that, when it happens.


I’m just glad of two things.

One?   I’ve a day off, today.

Two … ?   Last night’s episode of Robot Wars was fantastic!

I mean … Razer got knocked out in round one?   

Which was unbelievable.

Who slept through that final, between Carbide and Behemoth … ?

But let’s move on, shall we?   I would like to go shopping!
