Dear loyal readers- all four of you, it’s that time of year again where I sit out in my courtyard sipping coffee wondering what to do next – I’m on holiday and this time it’s for a whole four weeks – yahoo! I have no big plans, I’m not going away, nobody is coming from overseas and even Xmas day will be a nice quiet small affair with many of the usual family members going away and not here on Xmas Day.
Naturally this led to thoughts of my blog. I always have such big plans for my blog but then I get busy and because I work with computers all day long, there are many times when I don’t even want to turn on my PC when I get home. But with all this free time stretching out ahead of me, now feels like the perfect time to crank up the old blog and make a start.
So… what did I do today? Apart from boring old housework I managed to finally upload the photos I took a couple of weeks ago of the Xmas lights on Franklin Rd, so the friend I went with could see them. Then I decided to get the camera out to see if it was charged up and then take a photo of the massive pile of Lego that I have purchased this year but haven’t got round to actually opening and building.
The reason I’ve ended up with so much Lego is that when a set is first released it is expensive and then the longer you take to buy it (from any of the Trade Me sellers) the more expensive it gets. You’d think it would get cheaper but they know somebody will always buy it no matter what price they charge, so I have to buy it as soon as it comes out to save money which I realise doesn’t make sense, but it does in the long run. Check out the little update on my Lego blog.
Then I spent a bit of time hanging up several strings of Xmas lights in the courtyard, after that was done I felt I deserved a beer. Oh yes my holiday has well and truly begun, the sun umbrella is up, the beer is in hand and the Xmas music is playing. It’s a good life. Now I can’t wait to see all my handiwork once it gets dark.
At last it got dark enough to see the lights.
Plus I made a wee video for you.
