    Trying to convince myself that I need to save money instead of buying the Ferris Wheel...

    ^ Rubbish.  You need a Ferris Wheel.  You owe it to yourself.

    ^^Saving money for the next lego purchase?  Then might as be the Ferris Wheel!  It is a beauty.

    I hope things improve soon, @snowhitie, without any further surgical complications. And not being able to build just adds insult to injury! :(

    Good luck with the deliveries, @thebeermonkey and @legonut80!

    Thanks everyone I'm 32 weeks pregnant with twins at the moment so we want to keep them in a little bit longer yet, I'm feeling huge though. At the scan last week twin 1 was breech and twin 2 transverse so they are being little monkeys at the minute.

    @thebeermonkey you also need to look at primo we love it and the little rattle pieces. All 4 of mine still play with duplo, usually making cakes or towers or something.

    @LostInTranslation haha thanks :) that's made me laugh, and I've been a bit grumpy today. Hum a bag made of Lego? I still remember the Midwife last time having to go in my bag, moving the friends polybag to get to what I needed :)

    6.5 years ago, when my wife gave birth to our first child, I shared the experience with my friends and family on Facebook. No pictures obviously, but I was commenting between pushing...lol. I was a full participant in the birthing process; from the epidural to cutting the cord. I had ahold of my wife's leg with one hand and another on the keyboard :)

    BTW, my child never had Duplo, she went right into regular System Lego ;)

    Mine haven't had duplo either. The regular lego is far better for stuffing in ears and up noses and irritates everyone so much more if a whole 2000 + box of bricks is emptied on the floor! 

    Seriously though duplo doesn't even catch the 1 year olds eye but my green grocer on the dining room table is about the most interesting thing she's seen all week and is currently her main ambition to touch!

    Edit:-  That said, she looks like one hell of a sorter.

    ^^^ You have clearly trained her well. Nice colour sorting. 

    I will be fully involved in the birth but not sure if I will be venturing any further south than the high side of the bed.

    I'll be hands on but not hands in.

    I'll leave that part of the process to the professionals.

    ^I do not know; that is why I asked. I shovel snow in my shorts. In fact, I wear shorts no matter how cold it is. Although, I shouldn't have worn shorts a few weeks ago when it 10 degrees Fahrenheit with a -2 wind chill; my legs were burning.

    Trust @SumoLego to get mathematics involved (not using the abbreviation cause I don't want to start up another argument). But seriously, your and other commentsmade me smile a lot, thanks. Just what I needed!

    Waw @Pitfall69 with your child so close to little pieces have you never had any go 'missing'?

    I have Raynauds, my fingers and toes would fall off shovelling snow in shorts. I don't have enough padding or circulation to keep my house that cold. Some people run their internal thermostats higher than others. my mother likes it cooler, my father hotter. It leads to some fantastic family squabbles over the thermostat settings.

    If I didn't have children or have to worry about the pipes freezing, I would have it set lower. My wife is up and down all day. I have set the thermostat so if she turns it up, it will go back down automatically. She is always saying "Did you turn the heat fown again?" "No dear, I didn't touch the thermostat" ;)

    well being active helps you stay warm. it's something else staying in the cold and doing nothing.

    Just about done filling in the gaps of the ridiculous keychain collection.  Ms. Granger arrived this morning to round out the HP theme.



    (Looking for a 2004 Doc Ock and 2004 Mary Jane, if anyone happens to have one.  I'll happily trade top-dollar!)

    Still trying to ignore 20% of #75094 until we see if the new UCS Snowspeeder is any good...
  • catwranglercatwrangler Northern IrelandMember Posts: 1,854
    Sent off my first (and possibly only) Lego sale on Ebay - the Bumblebee Girl did very well, so thanks to the people here who advised me to sell now instead of waiting! The Leprechaun met with less excitement but sold for more than I paid, so it was worth throwing him in, since I'm not fond of him anyway. 

    Had another look for that half-price Friends Easter set in Argos, but still out of stock - it's entirely possible that I'll buckle and pay the £3.99 if I can find the thing at the big Tesco on Friday...

    Oh, it's one of those Irish cliche things and it just gets on my wick! :D Also, I hoped there might be a bit of interest in him with St. Patrick's Day coming up...

    Maybe if you have a Leprechaun stall, in an Irish bar in some English town, you might be able to sell the leprechaun to somebody? :)

    After seeing what his wife did to his P.S.D. during Pitfallcon, I can't blame him for locking the door just in case she starts stamping on things again.

    The mosaic stored on my floor seems to be a good display/play space for some of my other models.

    I've bought more than enough LEGO for now. My 2x VIP order was just big enough for free shipping, but even that felt like a bit much. Still interested in what I have and what's on the way.
