Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Santa's coming


Look who I saw in Covent Garden this week:







 

 Santa and his reindeer.
 The LEGO sleigh and reindeer contains 700,000 bricks and took Duncan Titmarsh, a LEGO professional, 32 days to build.


Has anyone got LEGO on their Christmas wish list this year?

  1. Oh my goodness! Lots of work! Well done. My great grandsons are getting (more) Legos and a Lego tray (among no doubt much else).

  2. Great photos and what patience must be needed to build something like that out of Lego. I remember how frustrating I found some of the Lego when my son was of an age to build them and wanted help!

  7. At least one of our children have Lego on their wish list - but they won't be getting this much!
    Quite fun to see.

  10. Incredible work and I guess a lot of planning went into the construction. Lego professional? There is such a thing?

  11. I'm amazed at what people build out of Lego - when I was a kid I was pleased if I could build a small tower!

  18. I've never had a Lego set although I do have a childhood memory of a game with small wooden pieces that may have predated that phenomena. Santa's expression looks a bit desperate :) Loved your most recent comment and have gone back to view a few of your older posts. That reflection shot is stunning and the skies behind the BT building and many of the intricacies that you captured are fascinating. Have a wonderful week ahead, Fun60!

  19. No , no lego on my wish list! But great to see what can be constructed using them!

  20. Wowza! It's hard enough for me just to make a simple structure out of legos.

  21. Yes, my 4 year old grandson ! Meanwhile he can open a Lego shop, he had birthday, Santa Claus (very important in Holland) behind him and I got a list with what he doesn't have YET !! You make me so homesick when I see all these Christmas decoration in London and now even on my beloved place the Covent garden !

  22. When I lived in The Netherlands (long ago) I always wanted to travel to the theme park LEGOLAND
    In Denmark. I Understand they are in several countries now including Windsor, England. What I didn't know is that they are owned by a British company. Love the display! Janey
