    'One day' is never a day for anything.  Ask my wife about her lazy husband.

    Need to make room for new sets I want to build. So I now finally am taking my Queen Anne's Revenge #4195 apart, and bagging it up.  I have had this ship on display ever since I bought and immediately build it back in December 2012.
     
    I remember scouring all of the city and the web because the set had EOL'ed a month earlier. I could not afford to pay a steep aftermarket price for it, but after quite an extensive search, resorting too to calling a couple of companies with many branch stores throughout the country to ask them if they still had this set on the shelves in one of their shops. The last one available in all of the many department and toy-stores where they sell Lego sat on a shelf in a shop on the outskirts of Amsterdam. I rang them up, and they would hold on to it to closing time, if I would buy it that day. It was storming, and pouring rain that evening when I went there, but the miserable weather was all worth it.

    And all this deconstructing proceeds while watching Silence of the Lambs, because taking and bagging up sets can be so tedious.

    Well I just moved to Bulgaria with none of my Lego and roughly half of my kids Lego. Time to go shopping I guess? Probably should shower or sleep first though.

    I am going to try and finish off sorting the last few centimeters covering the bottom of the 7kg Lego bricks & pieces box I bought 2 months ago whilest watching the darts tonight.
    You'd think the task would become easier the less is in the box, but the parts are just getting smaller and smaller which makes sortin gthem much harder..... or I may just put it off again and continue my build of #10235

    Happier then the other day.  Tesco have come around to my way of thinking and decided that we have been treated amazingly bad and are now going to honour my order plus they are knocking £30 off the price.  Plus they sent out a 10quid gift card the other day. So also have a happy child (as it was a birthday present for him)

    in a way, I find parts sort themselves. small parts tend to fall to the bottom

    That is true. But this is still a mess. =)

    yes, I usually deal with single sets, so there's not as many pieces.

    My wife agreed to give me my own space for all my Bricklink Inventory and personal collection! 

    ^^^How'd you pull that off?! Tell us your secrets!
    I have no clue. I do have the best wife, though. I did mention that if I had my own room, there wouldn't be any Lego in any other place in the house. That peaked her interest!

    DARRRGH, it's happened again!  I thought I'd gotten out of the habit of my stuff I don't want or need, but a £58 High Speed from Amazon was too good to miss.

    A sign of maturity is when you can cancel a LEGO order with no remorse.

    Kid comes home talking about some new cueball space station game his friend has. 2am that night I'm launching space rockets filled with little green people into orbit and my alarm is due to go off in less than 4hrs. How did I never know about Kerbal Space Program? It's amazing, although nothing to do with Lego...  yet.

    I have 75903: Haunted Lighthouse waiting for me when I get home.  I don't have any interest in Scooby Doo but I think it could become a part of my village.  Also there *must* be a way to add a revolving light into it!

    I built it last night, what a great set!  Loads of playability and, although I built it quickly last night (while allegedly watching the baby) I'll go back tonight and swap out the blue base plate pieces for any old grey ones I have and then use the blue to make sea around it.

    Also, I realise the curtains are horrendous.  They were in the house when we bought it and we've never got round to changing them!

    It is a senseless waste of all the lives.
    The Terrorists must know they have achieved nothing? 

    If only we could turn all guns and explosives into Lego bricks.
    The world would be a much happier place.

    In Liverpool Lego store earlier and my son took managed to take a tumble and cut his arm and he was upset.  Staff were really good, managed to get him cleaned up and gave him a Ninjago polybag because in their words "we don't want people unhappy in our store".  Really nice of them and managed to get him smiling again :)

    Spent 6 hours standing in line last Saturday without toilet or food breaks to get my hands on the Exclusive Lego Store set. Yes, things are a little crazy here in Malaysia. People were there as early as 6am for the grand opening at 10am, and it continued until about 4pm when all the free sets ran out. I got there at 8.30am, which turned out to be a bad idea, because I only managed to get into the store at 1.30pm

    Found a shop here in a mall with a fairly large Lego selection which is nice. Sadly this includes a mountain of Chima Speedorz still at full price. Not going to be holding my breath for any deals or clearance.

    Slightly worried as I started putting the christmas sets together ready for decoration time and the wife put together the thanksgiving feast and winter fun sets. Whilst it was nice to build together, as she has never shown an interest in Lego before it's slightly worrying just for the fact she might find out how much the collection has grown in the last 10 months.

    Very happy got lego dimensions for 56quid amazon France plus Simpson and scooby pack for less than half price.

    Yum! Awesome cake in the Glasgow brand store this morning.
    Thanks @BOBJACK_JACKBOB :o)


    Yup, looked and tasted great thanks @BOBJACK_JACKBOB Nice not only to meet another afol but another male cake maker as well! Sorry couldn't hang about, had a table at a toy sale and i didn't want to annoy my already peed off wife by being late for the pickup. Her response after getting her ewok village? 'did u get the key ring i asked for?'. Would have been a lot cheaper!

    Today, I'm getting together BL orders from my store. Also, bought $75 in parts for BL'd Bat-Pod.  Wife and I are going to a local museum to look around.  I'm thinking of building an Arch MOC of it.

  • nexandernexander Glasgow Member Posts: 872

    Dug out all the winter village eta in preparation for next week to discover I was missing a bonus set from last Christmas I never used.  hopefully it will turn up when I get the decorations out!  also got together all the plates etc I got from PAB to fill in between the sets to realise its going go be very flat.  time to learn how to use bricklink and get some slopes.  On a related note, any idea how many 2x4 bricks you fit in a lager PAB cup?

    ^ I have no idea how many 2x4s will go for a swim in the drink but that's the funniest typo I've seen since Bilbo ;o)

     @goldjono Can you advise @Nexander how many 2x4 bricks will fit in the larger PAB cup?
  • BOBJACK_JACKBOBBOBJACK_JACKBOB ScotlandMember Posts: 471
    @Lego_Star & @nexander ;Thanks guys for the kind words.
    It was good to meet you too nexander. Afols and cake makers are very thin on the ground where I live so it was nice to meet someone who is both!
    It was also very nice to meet your brother Lego Star. In fact tell him I said it AWESOME to meet him!
    Also sorry I couldn't hang about but looking forward to the next meet-up!

    Anyway, on topic, I'm halfway through building the Death Star my wonderful wife bought for me with her first wage as a newly qualified nurse!
