Amazing stuff Lego - I have fond memories of building garish multicoloured models from it into my teens (tasteful they weren't but then you had to go by the block size you needed/wanted colour sadly did not enter into the equation)

So fast forward to today - eldest child has an impressive array of lego models(from the power miners range to be exact. You didn't know they do ranges now? Yes - exclusive models, time limited runs as well it seems - Lego has definitely moved on!)

Youngest child also likes this lego - but being only 3 1/2 the inevitable has happened.....

Looks fine doesn't it? Sadly not - after being put back together there are 2 orange based flame thingies (I have no idea what they should be called!) missing. O has been no help in trying to locate them and the entire house has been turned upside down looking for them - it looks even more like we've been burgaled than normal.

Meltdown is in progress (from all 3!) and I am hiding. Here. Somebody let me know when it is safe to come out please?


  1. Uh-oh, they're not up the hoover are they? I remember the sound of lego being hoovered up so well.

    My younger son has just got rid of all his lego. I was rather sad, mainly at the thought of all the money we'd spent on it.

    I am regretting the cooking lessons by the way. Still, it's got to be done.

  2. Mmm - that would require me to have hoovered recently (bad mother!)Still no sign, but as a last resort it will be ordering replacement parts......

    The price of Lego is shocking isn't it? Best not to keep it forever - we are finding that my husbands ancient lego from childhood is becoming a bit brittle.

    Will be watching with interest re the cooking lessons. Child 1 likes to cook and can manage simple recipes himself. It is the Clearing-up-AFTER-cooking lessons we'll be working on this summer!

  3. I don't think I'll ever grow out of my love for lego!
