Well, sort of Tesla padlock......

A while ago I bought one of those padlocks that uses letters so you can make a word instead of trying to remember a number.



but there's no "E" on the first tumber
so the closest I could get is

Hardly bored, just downloading photos off the phone that I'd taken over the 3-day trip to Nottingham to see elder daughter, her partner, grand-daughter and impending second grand-child (due in early April).

("see" = helping get the child bedroom ready, changing light fitting, putting a curtain track up, hanging the curtains, laying underlay after repairing broken floorboards, re-laying the carpet, moving and re-arranging furniture, securing wardrobes to walls so little ones cannot pull them over, buying a car-load of baby supplies from local shops etc etc)

First picture shows MUSK down the right hand column.
Second picture shows BLON down the right hand column.  Closest that Chris could get to ELON.

Elon Musk = chap behind Tesla.  Took me a while, but I think that's right...
