Building Star Wars Lego

Big Brother is the biggest Star Wars fans. I’m not sure how it happened but he pretty much only reads Star Wars books, watches Star Wars films and cartoons and wears his favourite Star Wars tshirt.

When I heard that there was going to be a free Lego Star Wars set with the newspaper I rushed to the shops to make sure I was first in line. Sadly I was second in line and I was only allowed to buy one paper! So I sent Daddy straight in after me to make sure he got a set for Little Sis.

The Lego set was 30278 Poe’s X Wing Fighter which both children were really happy about.

Unfortunately for Big Brother we had planned a day in London so he wasn’t able to build his Lego straight away. Instead we hopped on the Met line into town. Little Sis and I went one way to the Science Museum and Daddy and Big Brother went off to the Playstation Kids and Parenting Showcase. Doesn’t this sound like their perfect event?

They had a great time together and Big Brother got to try loads of new games he wants us to buy! Well he has just finished Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens so we’ll see….

After we met up and had lunch it was time for a quick visit to Forbidden Planet and Orbital Comics, Big Brother’s favourite shops.

When we got home he was finally able to build his new Lego set.

Little Sis has been really enjoying herself in Reception. She has made loads of friends and is learning so much. She has been writing her name properly (no more capitals A’s in the wrong place!) and bringing home lots of drawings every day.

This is the picture she brought home today. Boobies. Not quite sure what they’re teaching her anymore….

Learning about castles in Year 2

Big Brother took part in his first assembly of the year today. This term they are studying castles which he is really enjoying. Everyone in his class had to stand up and say what they had been learning. They also did a little medieval dance which was fun!

When it was over he was able to show us some of his work.


We loved the model he made of a castle.I especially liked the cupcake flag he made for it. Not quite sure where he got that idea from!


I had to get him a little gift for taking part and learning his lines so well. He was pretty pleased with the new Lego Star Wars Annual 2017. Little Sis wasn’t left out as she received the 2017 Paw Patrol Annual too.
