Down to Whitstable and Up to London..........

At St Pancras station there is a Christmas tree made of Lego. It is quite something. Looking at it made me smile and reminded me of my son playing happily with all his Lego. I felt like a young mom again. I remembered being young.
Then I saw this......


 It makes me feel old. I still have the original LP. Beast of Burden is such a great song.


The new wall hanging my sister has...........




Oh if only..................

Hi Libby, thanks for the pointer to St Pancras. Dropping in for out on the Eurostar in just over a week's time. My girls will enjoy the Lego tree - me too :-) I may just be following my dreams on this trip!

Being a big Lego fan I am both jealous and intrigued...!

Kellogsville.....regrets serve no purpose though do they?
LMSG....oooh what are you up to?
Steve...it is fabulous and there is a competition attached to it to guess how many pieces are involved.

I too am a Lego fan, taking my little girls to Legoland it was debatable who had more fun. I just loved all the scene decoration detail: pigeons roosting, men at all sorts of work including up pylons and down man holes, etc. Marvelous!

Funnily enough there is now that song from Maroon 5 about "moves Mick Jagger' Before that my kids didn't know who Jagger was. I know what you mean about dreams, I'm 50 next year...is it all over? I'll tell you from the other side...

I had a permanent limp for abut 7 years when my kids were little from stepping on Lego in the dark in bare feet :-(

Hausfrau...good old Lego pleases everybody at some point really.
AG...snap...I'm not a good enough photo taker to give it its' due.
ALW...over at 50? No...everything is just slower and more grey...and elastic waistbands on trousers seem like a good idea...you need guidance from me and Auntiegwen.
CQ....and that hip pushed to one side from holding a toddler on the other one? ah those were the days...

If it's any consolation I'm sure the Rolling Stones, any of them on any given day, all feel older than all of us.
At least I hopes so....

Trish @ Mum's Gone To ... said...

I have a friend who lives in Whitstable. Did you see her? Name of Maggie...

libby said...

Macy.....but they all have money and a luxurious lifestyle..I am a little bit jealous!
Trish...Oh Maggie...down that one street and around that corner?

I loved Legos when they were Legos. Just blocks of different sizes and colors. No pre-formed kits with wheels and roofs and wings. No merchandising-tie-in stuff. Just Legos and a kid's imagination. Those were the good old days.

Marcheline...We could say that about so much couldn't we? but there must have been the odd bad thing about the good old days too!
