    Wow, I'm quite impressed with some of the beautifully wrapped presents.

    Am I the only one that doesn't have wrapping paper and has to come up with excuses for shipping a plain brown box...? Er... I'm just doing what LEGO does.

    ^^^Hero Factory or Bionicle maybe? Not getting much sense of scale here...

    Just for statistics sake, all of the EU group have send and received their gifts!  Happy Holiday everyone!

    Seeing a couple of Raspberry Pis casually strewn across the desk begs me to ask what they're for!

    Just work stuff.  One for wallboard information and the other for showing BBC news through the iPlayer app.  Nothing exiting or Lego related unfortunately.  
    Looking at the pic I just noticed I it shows 2 Lego boxes under the desk too.  That's for when work gets too boring over the quiet Christmas period (he said hopefully) Maybe should hold a comp on here to see if anyone can guess the one on the right.

    Got them!  Thanks SS.  I let C-3PO out of his can.  We are having a heat wave today at 27 degrees F, much warmer than the -14 we had the other day; so he didn't get too cold. :oP   One of our little monsters is already eyeing the packages to chew on and I will have to put them up to keep him out of it.  Thank you for the Mrs. BombTec gift as well.  I've been slowly getting her into Lego with friends and Disney. :oD Can't wait until Christmas!!!  I think I may have to tear into the PEZ though.

    It's info from one of the many amazon drones that I hired to spy on everyone taking part in the UK Secret Santa before they got put into service delivering parcels.   ;)


    Not really, I recognised the box as I had recently pulled it out with the intention of incorporating it in my Winter set up but ran out of space again so unfortunately it went back into the backlog.
     :(

    Important question is can @bandit778 guess what is in the mystery box on the left? Me thinks it's a box full of plop LOL ;0P

    Hope Santa's been feeding his Reindeer well, think they might have stopped off for a rest.

    Ironically part of my other secret santa gift didn't arrive in time for me to receive it either, lol.

    I received my package today.  There is that glorious lego rattle when I gently shake the box.  Thank you Secret Santa!  Hurry up Christmas, I can't wait to see what was selected for me. :-)

    Really? I assume it's something geeky - just like the cloned desktops and whatever that document is that he printed off earlier in the day...

    Or should I not shake it? It could be an older set, and I would hate to damage the box...
    AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!

    My nerd OCD will never forgive me if I don't point out that that's extended not cloned. :-)

    Thanks for sharing, and making me feel a little better about my LEGO workstation at the same time. ;)

    I put away a few thousand parts that were on there last week.

    Only 4 more presents to arrive in the UK! Exciting.... Hope everyone is being good at keeping the wrapping paper around it. Only a couple more days!

    In all the festive fun over the last week I completely forgot to say my SS gift arrived safe and sound last week. Thus making it the first presents under our tree.



    I'm intrigued by the smaller of the two presents as it has small "sub" prezzies attached to it.



    Unfortunately the wrapping paper specifically says no peeking, so that's that plan scuppered. 

    Tune in Chrismas morning for news of what was inside.
