fun with lego

What a joy it was playing with Lego again this Christmas. It's been many, many years since I last played with the toy, and I took great pleasure in putting together, in a variety of permutations, a little spaceship at Sam and Laura's flat over New Year.

It was fun enough for me, Dan and Chequers to spend about twenty minutes ogling the varied sets available in Gallerie Lafayette the next day, everything from lovely little Volkwagon Beetles, Spaceships, Fire stations and, of course, the Eiffel Towel itself. The range takes in Star Wars, Indiana Jones and doubtless countless other alternatives. We drooled at them unashamedly, blocking the view of eager Parisian infants stuck behind us. In a moment of excitement, Chequers swore that he would buy one of the expensive 3 in 1 models once he returned to Brighton. I hope he does.

And invites me round.

Never grew out of Lego myself, but also been building stuff more regularly for/with my four year old nephew. Very soothing activity.
