    Default Old rocking chair got me

    I'm not spending a lot of time in the workshop lately...in fact I'm finding myself sat in front of the TV most of the time..I have 3 soprano ukuleles part done and I just can't find the motivation to complete them...it could be down to old age or laziness or a mixture of both...maybe when the weather warms up a bit I will feel like getting back into the swing and complete them.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Yep, it's the weather, Ken. When things warm up a bit (may it be soon!) you'll be out in that workshop, with your best foot forward, your nose to the grindstone, your shoulder to the wheel, your finger on the pulse. Perhaps not the best posture for making ukuleles, though. Better just stand up straight and get on with it.

    Definitely the weather. I seem to remember you said the same last year Ken, and possibly the year before. Understandable though, it's no fun in the shed/garage at the moment. Won't be long now before you're knocking them out again.

    Bad case of winter blahs. We seem to have a lot of commercials here that feature ukuleles, are there none there?

    Yes! we get them as well ..it's a cost effective DIY way of making cheap music they don't have to hire pro musicians.
