Hardware Door Opens

Dear Diary,

Today is the day. I can barely contain my excitement as I pen down these words. It’s the final stretch of this crazy project I embarked on. I’ll be updating this entry as the day goes on! 

This morning, I found myself standing at the entrance of our family’s hardware stop close to Cheltenham, just staring at the store in the soft glow of dawn. It was so peaceful, it almost felt unreal. Little did this humble place know that it was the heart of my mystery-filled adventure.

I stepped in, my mission clear – find the best electrical supplies Cheltenham has to offer. I was about to give the device the final touch, and I wasn’t taking any chances. After wandering through the aisle filled with wires, plugs, fuses, and switches, I finally had what I needed.

Back in the basement, the device looked intimidatingly complex yet beautiful. The timber structure that had started as a pile of planks was now an intricate arrangement of wood, pipes, wires, and gears. And it was all my handiwork.

The electrical part was a challenge – a fun one, though. I felt like a detective, following the hints in the blueprint to figure out where each wire connected and which switch went where. There was a moment of absolute joy when I successfully rigged a circuit and it lit up as expected. The device was coming alive!

Finally, it was time. Time to see if my weeks of hard work had paid off. With a pounding heart, I flipped the switch. The device hummed to life, lights blinking, gears turning. I held my breath as it whirred and clicked, sparks flying in the semi-darkness of the basement.

Then the unthinkable happened – the hidden door creaked and began to open. I couldn’t believe my eyes as it revealed a massive bunker beyond. The diary entry ends here for now, as I’m left standing at the threshold of a new mystery. I can only imagine what’s waiting for me inside.

Until next time, Diary.
