Review : LEGO CITY


Imagine you are the driver of a big truck.

Imagine you can build a whole city.

LEGO lets kid's imaginations run wild.

Our house is no exception. Enter exhibit A
(and there's more where that came from !)

We were lucky to be sent a great LEGO City truck to review.

Perfectly aimed at my children's ages of 6 yrs, 8 yrs, and 10 yrs.

Mstr 8 had it out of the box and made up in about 15 minutes flat. He LOVES LEGO!

I love that this LEGO is such a step up for children the same age as mine. It has the challenge of putting the truck together and then all the little bits that go with it. A spade, bins, shovel.. all little bits the kids love.

It moves apart

It also has a wheel on the side which let you tip the garbage into the truck... as my son demonstrates below
(grubby unwashed hand and all!)


Thanks LEGO another winner in our eyes. Lucky its a certain boys birthday in 10 days and on the top of his list - LEGO!!!

Be sure to check out all the other LEGO city range.

Things I'm loving : Writing a blog post

So it's been a while since I have written a blog post, over a month, how time flies.

So back into it with a 'Things I'm Loving Post'. I have loved this while Kristy hosted it and I'm 'loving' that Meghan is going to keep it going. Thanks Kristy for such a wonderful linky that allowed us to pause and find the things we are thankful for each week.

So this week I'm loving....

awesome happy mail from this lovely lady in New Zealand. When I went back to New Zealand in February I was so lucky to meet her in person!

The Pukeko and Kiwis went out in the Australian wilderness for a bit of rock climbing....

and to give you a bit of context... this is our back wall....
Yeah, I know what you are thinking... I'm thinking it too.. the perfect hideout for snakes!!!

We are totally loving this beautiful little kitty. She has won all of our hearts over and over. She's five months old now and grown soooo much.

This week I have been sick... with a virus. The kind where you are aching all over, sore throat, nausea...and the Doctor says, rest and hydrate, its a virus, that will be $95 thanks. I'm not complaining, I crashed and burned, it was coming. I'm just thankful it wasn't anything more serious.

So I have been resting and hydrating and today I finally feel a bit more human.  The knitting needles are out (dusted off) and Im knitting a lovely drop stitch scarf from this amazing wool I won from another IRL blogging friend Kylie.

and for that hydrating.... yummy T2 tea in my beautiful teapot and cup I got for my birthday

Go and join in the loving over at MNM's today!!
