There has been an explosion of small plastic pieces in our house over the festive period. Lego, it seems, was all a small boy wanted for Christmas. He already had a considerable amount already and we have now added to his collection
If you remember this post, the icing on the cake was the Lego Fire Boat, shown on the right of this picture. It didn't arrive until the Wednesday after Christmas as Granny and Grandad had got it for him. Unfortunately that meant an upset little boy on Christmas morning as "I told Father Christmas I wanted the Fire Boat". I had to keep reminding him that perhaps Father Christmas had left presents at Granny and Grandad's house. Note to self - when a small boy keeps saying he wants something, Mummy must remember that it is required on Christmas morning and not three days later!
It seems though that all this Lego is not enough as, when we returned from a visit to my parents, the new Lego catalogue was lying in wait for us. Cue much "I really want that" "and that" "and that"....
All I have to remember now is not to stand on any small bits that will inevitably get scattered about.
