I used to play with lego when I was a child. I used to have a box of bricks, windows and doors and curved pieces. I had to use my imagination to build things and I can remember my dad showing me how to interlock the bricks so that the walls of my houses wouldn’t collapse. I also have a vague memory of dad building me a boat and showing me how to slope the sides.

When I had my daughter Duplo had been manufactured, so we started her off with that and then,  as she got older we progressed to lego bricks and then sets.

Christmas 2017 I decided to build a few of her sets, that she has left here for safe keeping, and that renewed my interest. I have started to collect the bigger Star War sets.

Here are a few photos of the sets. I will later rebuild some of Becca’s sets and upload those photos.

I have had this set for many years and realised that I haven’t uploaded any of the models I have made. Here is a video of the cube sorter. Luckily, although the software is very old I have got it working on Windows 11.


This is one of lego’s largest sets. It took quite some time to build and covers my dining table.

Here are my Christmas collections.

I treated myself to the Haunted house in October so that I could have a display for Halloween.

2022 October

I decided that I would treat myself to the lego lighthouse. I have been meaning to build a 1/12 th scale dollshouse lighthouse, but never got round to it. So this seemed to be a perfect solution.

Becca’s Lego

After Christmas I decided I would build Becca’s lego that she had when she was a child.
