Get That Christmas Card List Written

So here we are, the beginning of December, time to get that Christmas card list done so I know which family and friends I’ll be sending a Christmas card to. The hardest list is always the one for my 7 year olds school friends as there’s always someone I forget from the class list. Need to make sure j give myself plenty of time to get the cards posted in plenty of time which need posting.

So here you have my Lego replica of the giving of cards at Christmas time.

It’s Not Lego

Today I moved away from building with Lego to building with Lego compatible bricks. I’ve tried others in the past and generally I’ve been unimpressed with the build of them, finding that the bricks don’t stay together well or the building instructions weren’t very clear. When I came across this princess carriage building set, I wasn’t sure if I should buy it or not, but it was only priced at £2.50, so I thought, why not?

While building the carriage, I was quite impressed with how well the pieces connected together and it was very well designed with good use of pieces. The only major fault I could find with this set is the figure that you get with it. This could be due to me being so used to seeing Lego minifigures, so I found this one quite weird in comparison. I have a feeling that I’ll be substituting it for display purposes. I’ve already been thinking of how I could redesign the carriage using different colour schemes, so I can see future potential with it. I’m definitely going to be keeping a look out for this brand of building brick sets in future.

Letter to Santa

Has everyone got their letters to Santa posted like Lego Gingerbread Man?

Still plenty of time so no need to panic yet. I only started doing my Christmas shopping yesterday and will hopefully have most of it finished by tomorrow, whether it’s going to the shops or doing it online. Luckily my family have given me plenty of ideas of what to buy them.
