Lego Police and Nearly a Minecraft Torch

We had to buy 3 smoke alarms and batteries for Number 14 today, which we have to hand over to the tenants in their packaging so they know they are new. From then on they are responsible for the smoke alarms and batteries themselves.

Tonight me and Amy are off to The Lowry Theatre to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. It's not something I would have chosen to see but Amy loves the book and has been asking about going to see it for a while, so tonight is the night.

I've bought Thomas this Lego Police Unit for Christmas. He's wanted to be a policeman since about the age of 3 so I think he'll like this. He keeps changing his mind about what he wants to do, traffic, firearms or dog handling (flavour of the month), so it'll be interesting to see if he ends up in the force when he's older what he actually does do.
There was a minecraft torch that I saw as well but it didn't have a price on. Admittedly, it was a big thing but when I got them to check at the counter and it came up at £22.99 it went back on the shelf. I think he'd like it though, so I'm going to keep my eyes peeled to see if it comes down in price

  1. One year Mr 18 got all the bionicles Lego kits - full price in Argos but they'd got them in at Home Bargains half price!!
    Meant to say Number 14 is looking gorgeous X

    1. It's so annoying when that happens. I'll keep an eye on the price to see if it comes down. If he desperately wanted it I'd buy it, but he doesn't know what he wants this year so we're guessing and it just seemed an expensive filler. Thank you, we're really happy with Number 14. The walls are a bit creamier than I'd have liked but I'm not going to lose any sleep over that. xx

    2. No I meant I got them in Home Bargains - meaning if you can get to one, keep looking, they often get great priced branded goods in X

    3. Ah, see what you mean now. I think we have a Home Bargains (I get mixed up with all these shop names), so I'll have a look.

  2. Violet wants the Lego Friends Grand Hotel. I have told her no as it's not so much a small fortune but a massive one. I've already got her the Cinderella doll (gorgeous shoes!).Honestly, kids, they're expensive things to keep aren't they?

    Hope you enjoy the play.
    :O) x

    1. The play was fantastic. People watching it ranged from 10-80. It's not often you get a play that can be enjoyed by so many generations.

      The lego hotel definitely has the WOW factor both in looks and money! Thomas has vaguely mentioned the lego police station but to be honest once it's built we don't really have anywhere to keep it which is why I've gone for something smaller. Yup, kids certainly are expensive. If I had any more, I'd re-think the whole Father Christmas thing. Here at Number 38 he traditionally brings what you ask for which is fine when they're little, not so much when Xbox, laptops and Iphones are on the list. I've told Amy if she ever has children to start as she means to go on. Father Christmas brings one main present with a price limit plus the stocking fillers. The rest come from family who also have budgets! In hindsight that's how I wish I'd done it. xx

    2. Amy will be wise....because Nanna will buy it all lol
      Mine always had a wish list with the advice that Father Christmas might bring some of the things on the list! Spare a thought for my sister right now. Her 6 yo has informed her that he won't be writing a list as FC will know what he'd like BC FC is magic!!!

    3. Haha. Oh yes, we had that with Thomas last year. Refused to write a letter for weeks because FC would know what he wanted. When he finally relented he wrote "All I want is an Xbox One please"! He point blank refused to list anything else because he didn't want anything else so that was all that went on the list. xx

    1. The play was brilliant and we both really enjoyed it. Yes, lego has become a favourite at Number 38 over the years. Put a lump of playdoh in front of me and I can spend ages making things with that as well. It's quite therapeutic having something to do with your hands. xx

  4. Can I call in at yours on Christmas Day? I'll play with Lego anytime! And have you tried Ebay or Amazon for the torch? They have some Minecraft torches for £16 at the moment? Unless you object to buying online, or are keeping strictly to cash,there are often bargains to be had.

    1. Come along and join in the fun. I'm quite looking forward to getting my mitts on the police van myself. I buy online quite a lot so no objections from me on that score, but no, I've not checked Ebay or Amazon yet. £16 is a lot better than £23 so I'll have a look. Thanks. xx
