    Today I am heading into central London to see the new Leicester Square store and maybe the display at Covent Garden. I need to find me a nice little set to take with me over Xmas (as we won't be at home) because I've decided not to take my corner deli with me as I won't get chance to build it. It is wrapped and sat under my tree but will have to stay there until the new year.

    They didn't seem as excited as I did.
    They never are.  I was way more excited leaving a CMF Judge for a real-life Judge than the real-life Judge.

    Did he judge you for doing that?

    How do you know SumoLego would be able to judge if the Judge was judging because of the Lego Judge?  Sounds a bit judgemental to me.

    I just realized that #10697 is not as good an investment as I thought it would be. Yesterday while attempting the 8x32 modular I realized I didn't have enough bricks of one color, so there went my intention of building it.

    Need to open the other two to see how it goes....which means I need store room for them. #LEGOproblems

    The last wagon/carriage came to me while reading another thread with remarks towards dogging... and because I really like the Friends hot dog van...
    Excellent build! Do you have a flickr account so I can add it as a Favourite?

    My LEGO status is I am spending way too much money on LEGO when I should be planning some kind of future shift for my career, and that will involve costs. I keep telling myself "Hey, get it together after the first of the year." What a putz. I just want to avoid the inevitable weirdness of being a late forties dude trying to change careers.

    You know (well, of course you know) building LEGO is way more fun that facing reality! WOOOOT.

    So I had my little adventure into 'town' as fellow Londoners may say *. Shop was nice. The large display models were fantastic. Loved the Big Ben that actually chimed on the hour. The giant pic on the wall going up the stairs was amazing.....but....well there was a lot of spare floor space that was mostly filled with tourists (and me) taking pics of the various giant models. Queue to actually BUY things was tiny. What did I buy? Well there wasn't much in the way of small little sets. I was hoping for some polybags for stocking fillers and there wasn't any (usually loads at Westfield) and the novelty bits weren't anything different. I ended up buying the London Bus because I thought it was cute and I like buses (even though I have *whisper it* the wilkos blox version - forgive me). And then I walked to Covent Garden and saw the Lego models there. The elves are a bit freaky ! So a nice morning out but will still need to pop to a TRU or somewhere for those stocking fillers.                                                                                                       *I've been living in London ten years now - not sure that qualifies me as an actual Londoner.  PS took some photos but can't add them because of some boring technical stuff.

    Another day and 2 more minifigs made their way into my training sessions...

    Mariachi Man
    Genie (Disney)

    I have 6 of these sessions tomorrow. I'm thinking a theme is in order. Maybe the Avengers. Or just Iron Man variants. 

    Friday's session will definitely be from Star Wars for obvious reasons.

    Finally realizing Christmas is around the corner and need to get my winter sets out.
    Finished building the Winter Holiday train, but found it slightly too cute for my taste.
    Luckily I had ordered two...
    [...]
    The last wagon/carriage came to me while reading another thread with remarks towards dogging... and because I really like the Friends hot dog van...

    Now need to clear space and get those winter sets up and on display, no time to lose!
    That's so excellent! XD

    Nope, just bricksafe.
    And thanks - this has been my first attempt at building without instructions for over ten years, really enjoyed it, glad you have as well :-)

    Tell me about it... had a massive lay off (20% of employees) a month ago...
    My position was made redundant, but was offered someone else's (with twice my salary) with over 40 years experience in mineral oil tax... and have absolutely no experience in this area. I'll give it a shot, because I'd rather avoid being a late forties having to change careers.
    I sure am glad to be able to build LEGO in times like this!!

    ...too be honest, I couldn't face going in to work today and called in sick (first time in over ten years), but I guess it paid off!

    ...and sorry for the double post...

    ^ It's my newest project, a model of the Orient Express! (Kinda similar in design to the Emerald Night)  I uploaded an LDD version to LEGO Ideas but once I finish the physical model I'll resubmit it. I love it so much so far, I'll post another picture when I'm farther along! :)

    Recently bought a second copy of the Series 3 Microfighters to part out, while doing so last night, I noticed something about the pilot for #75125, is it just me or could his head be used for a Silent Bob minifig?

    Got my Christmas present from work today - some Fortnum & Mason biscuits (which I'll give to my mum as they've got walnuts and apricots in (yuck)) and a £25 Amazon gift card :-)) Which I will try to save until new sets are available!

    Disappointing surprise trip to the Cardiff store while staying away for work. Walkd in and saw the A-Wing pilot and the Gingerbread man, both in stock. Just needed to find £25 of Star Wars I wanted.....seemed to be a bit thin on the ground with choice. Only two Microfighters from six, had them both. No Obi Wan fighter that I wanted or the K-2SO buildable figure.

    For the first time ever I walked away empty handed!


  • gratefulnatgratefulnat SwitzerlandMember Posts: 272
    @blogzilly - thanks, it'll work out one way or the other, my priority is to either start getting some satisfaction out of it (again) or if not, then to move on. A door closing is also another one opening :-) Still have 3+ years until I hit 50, so now's the time if I decide change is the answer.

    I officially made my first PaB stop yesterday and tried my luck with a small cup. Didn't realize how all over my selections were until I got home and unpacked. 

    Guess I'll have to go back and focus more....

    Here are the 'freaky' looking elves on display at Covent Garden in London. 

    Very talented person who built them... but.... scary!

    Just git back from watching Rogue One, had a wonderful time, IMO a brilliant film that fans of the Saga will enjoy.
     On a Lego note, TLG have done really well with the look of the sets from the film, and I will definitely be adding them to my Star Wars collection.

    It was too dark and then too bright with flash. I brought my standby lightsaber. My real one is plaid and it is charging right next to my Samsung Gear 2 watch.
