Competition #255 Lockdown Letdowns

Post by LesleyD »

I've been scratching my head for days trying to come up with a topic. Let's see those Lockdown Letdowns we've all got ....

Maybe it's that Stratocaster guitar you bought, resolving to learn to play the guitar like David Gilmour, and it's still standing gathering dust in the corner. Or maybe it's that dilapidated shed in the garden you resolved to give a make-over to and it never happened, even though you bought all the tools etc you needed. Let's see the photos of all the stuff you bought, ready to complete the various projects.

I'll start the confessions off - I was going to learn a foreign language, signed up for a course (it didn't cost much), and did nothing after!

Let's see some photos of what's hanging around unused because the project never took off! If you don't have anything like that, have a look around your neighbourhood and see if you can find something that really should have been given some TLC during Lockdown!!!

I'll set a deadline of 31 May, because I'm going to be off the radar for a week or two having surgery on my poorly leg. At least that's one project that's going to be achieved :lol:

This is the pergola that I built a few years ago to house the electrical supply and controls for the waterfall in our front garden. The verticals that hold the control box have rotted because of the collection of water with no drain facility. So I was going to replace the entire structure with a different design, but haven't yet got around to it. Big lockdown letdown !!

This is the box that was sent to our troops and their families at Christmas 1914. I've been looking for it for a while, I remembered opening a box and thinking why did I put that in there and then thinking oh well, it's safe. So safe I forgot which box. But I was sorting out the ADAPS archive stuff to give to Len and found a box. What's in here, I wondered. Guess what.
The point of this rambling tale is to say we've been busy sorting out all sorts of things during Lockdown and far from being a Letdown it has found us time to do all these things.
The only letdown is that it's taken me a year to find the box, all so I could write the blog that I've published today. :lol:
Best regards
