What brought you out of your 'dark period'?
I have been wondering what spark has brought people out of 'Lego retirement'. Just a little bit about my experience the feel free to share or comment. I was 41 years old and working away from home during the week. I have a flat to stay in whilst away. I do not go to the pub regularly as many people do but I do game online on my PS3 but you can only do that for so long and can only read so many books so what to do? Gym....not so much, golf....rubbish at it, etc. I was sitting at home with my understanding wife and I had my epiphany! "I am going to build a lego city" said I, based on my love of Lego as a child/teen and I had always studied the boxes in the shops and bought for the kids through the years (oh how I regret passing that stuff on to other families).
So here we are 18 months later and me with over 85,000 bits, my city ongoing in the loft, a Star Wars addiction added and about 10 sets in the build queue at the flat!
Perhaps it was a mid-life crisis to do something different and if it is then as my wife says; "it is pretty safe". So what started as a desire to do something different has become a labour of love (and the bank balance).
So I ask what happened to make the rest of you do it?
