Happy Birthday Lego!


Lego was 50 years old yesterday. I was a huge Lego fan as a child, my parents would get me a new set for my birthday every year, and over the years it built up into a huge collection of pieces. We've passed this love of Lego on to our two children, who both have great fun playing with their duplo, especially our eldest who makes some awesome spaceships and airplanes (and robots, and dinosaurs...).

Almost got the Highland Games


The local New World Celts and associated Celtic groups had their annual games over the weekend. Yesterday we decided to take a brake from the insanity and pop over for a while, only due to the overly apt weather (foggy, cold, damp) my asthma was going insane so I had to go home. My wife and kids had a great time, though, they met up with a friend of ours and her boyfriend (who's big in the NWC) so had company. There were lots of vendors selling tasty stuff, some of which made its way home - real scones, Viscount biscuits (only orange, there wasn't any mint), and a bottle of Lucozade - num! :-) Next year we'll hopefully all get to go, I'll have to see about bribing the weather reporters first..
