To say 2020 has been an interesting year is quite the understatement. 2020 has know it’s fair share of highs and lows for me. Not only has it been the first time in my life I’ve lived through a global pandemic, it also was the year our second child was born. Both are guaranteeing quite some impact on our lives,Continue reading
A new Christmas, which also means new Lego! This year, a whole lot of great sets were released, so I delved deep into my pockets and found just enough to dash out waving bills to buy myself three of them.
A new year has nearly come to an end, which inevitably means new Christmas presents were to be found under the celebratory tree. The kind folks at Lego have created two more lovely sets of Lego Technic, and both have come to my house. Even gift wrapped! I’m particularly looking forward to 42043, which has the first implementation of theContinue reading
Another year, and yet again I have treated myself to a couple of sets of Lego. This year, the two largest 2013-models: 42008 and 42009! I’m afraid they’ll have to wait for my return in January.
This year the floor beneath ourÂ Christmas tree has been riddled with presents, many more than last year. I don’t know why, but the festivities spurred an unknown generosity among the both of us. Therefore, this year brought me not one but two sets of Lego! I can thank my GF for both the 8297 and the magnificent 8258. BelowContinue reading
Yesterday, our central heating system broke. I’m guessing it did, as I’m no heater-expert… The little flame isn’t burning anymore, and it’s not coming back on. No matter how hard I try. We kind of figured it would happen some day, as the system was built in back in 1992, and wih an average lifespan of about 15 years, oursContinue reading
On a very sunny Saturday morning, we set out for Alphen a/d Rijn to spend out day in the bird park Avifauna. Because of a very sturdy navigator, I’ve seen all small villages between Rotterdam and Alphen a/d Rijn, but we managed to get there nevertheless.
Yay! It’s my birthday today (I’m turning 25 this year), and I already got some presents. As you might know by now, I’m a Lego-addict, and I’ve got a new present to add to my collection: the 8294! It’s an excavator, and it fits nicely with the other pieces in the collection.
Yeah, we’ve been to this zoo before, and will very likely go there hereafter. We’ve got a year-pass
We did a road tour to a few Zoo’s: the first is Noorder Dierenpark in Emmen. Lovely park, however strangely divided into two parts. They feature a great set of animals, all held in pretty enclosures. Their speciality are the vast amount of baboons, elephants and Humboldt’s penguins. We’ve had a blast cruising the zoo, yet found it to beContinue reading
