‘Tis the season to build LEGO!

Look what arrived today!

I am so looking forward to building it and having it on display as a part of the Christmas decoration this year.
But why – oh, WHY! – did I, in a weak moment on August 13th agree with Laura on making a pact about not building this year’s set until the 20th of December?! Stupid little me. It seemed fun in August…

Christmas greetings from Berlin

In December my husband and I go to Berlin every year. To enjoy the Christmas Markets and to buy a new ornament for our tree. It’s a tradition.

This year I also had time for some LEGO fun. First of all, I went to the toy store in Saarstra├če which Laura visited in October this year. An awesome place with pick a brick with fixed prices per item.
Secondly, I was at The SONY Center to watch the new Hobbit film and wouldn’t miss the no less than two LEGO stores in connection with the LEGO Discovery Center also in the SONY Center. I bought a small scale version of the German parliament building, the Reichstag, and a small bag of bricks including the cool brick-like bricks.
There were LEGO decorations all over the SONY Center including a life size Santa sleigh. Here I am sending you season’s greetings next to Santa.

A happy new year to all of you!
