100th Post & a Very Lego Christmas

Hello from south Lanarkshire and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

Christmas here was as quite as it can be with an excitable 7 year old in the house and he was very lucky to have a 'very Lego' Christmas!


So that kept him (and me) rather busy for quite some time and we're not finished yet!

We've also been out and about a bit. Today we went to Cornhill House where my sister is getting married in May. Yesterday we also went to Corra Linn and New Lanark.



I've also been taking these photos for my brother.




These are watercolours painted by my grandfather. One of them stays with my parents, the other with me. For the last couple of years, my brother has been talking about getting digital copies of some of Grandpa's pictures so that he can have prints made. These photos are our latest attempt, although I don't think the light is quite good enough.

In amongst all the excitement, I've almost finished stitching on Edgar's RR! I can't believe how well I've got on with it and have thoroughly enjoyed stitching on it. I've now moved on to restart Paradigm Lost using a completely different floss and am really enjoying it too! Photos next time.

Gotta go now - sausages to cook!

Congratulations on your 100th post!

We had a very Playmobil christmas here, thanks to my daughther, lol. It always used to be a Star wars and lego Christmas when my son was younger.

Cherish the lego days.......they become the 'expensive electronic/gadget/console days' before you know what's hit you, lol.

We've got rain here too just now :(

I used to *love* Legos when I was a child! of course, they didn't have all the fancy stuff they have now LOL

Congrats on the post milestone. Nice watercolors... hope you can get good pics of them. That's a nice way to share them with the whole family!

Um, did I sign up for a PIF with you? I *think* I did, but I didn't write it down!
