Lego Modular Series: Fire Brigade 10197

On the Easter Weekend we built the Lego Fire Brigade for Sarah’s birthday. I’ve had my eye on Lego’s modular series of buildings for some time.  They’ve done a range including a green grocer, a pet store, a cafe, a hotel and a town hall.  The Fire Brigade is about a year old and is 2,231 pieces. Happily, I can ...

Lego Architecture – Seattle Space Needle

A little prezzie from Jen for Easter.  This was a super quick build.  I think there’s only about 60-70 pieces and it took about ten minutes.  Weirdly enough, there’s a step in the instructions that asks you to cut some pieces with a pair of scissors.  Can’t say I’ve come across that before.

I was pretty happy ...

The Holiday in Sydney

Over the past 18 months or so, myself and Jenni have come to have quite a soft spot for Sydney.  I’ve travelled there about 10-15 times in the past year and both of us have many fond memories there.  We’ve got our favourite restaurants, favourite shops that sell stuff you can’t find in Brisbane and many old friends from Queensland ...
