Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 11-8-2017

Hmmm … 

You’d never have thought it … 

I’ve actually watched more TV.

I had the day off, yesterday: and have a few more coming, next week.

Which has got me sitting there, having a good think about the job.

Who knows what I’ll need up doing … but I need to do something about those hours.


At ANY rate … ?

At any rate, I managed to catch more TV, last night.
