I am still sorting Lego. It is a Herculean task, but I will prevail. With broken nails and fingers with permanent dents in them from breaking bricks apart, but I will get to the end.

Nothing happened today. I took the kids to school, came home and went back to sleep. I woke up and five minutes later Mum rang so I talked to her, then went and picked up the kids from school. Discovered that somewhere in the fog Emma gave me a sports day form that I had failed to fill in so we had to go to the office and do that so she can go and play sports tomorrow. Sorted more lego. Felt sick with being so tired. Waited for Troy to get home with fish and chips. The most exciting thing that happened all day was talking to mum and watching Godzilla eat his dogfood.


I wrote that earlier. Troy came home with the fish and chips and with the official program for the UFC on Saturday. Because he was still in the city for his financial planning school he walked up to Fed Square on his lunch hour to see the open training. He got to watch Joanna Jedrzejczyk do hers, and although he didn’t get to stay and watch Ronda’s training he saw her for a moment anyway. I would have loved to go so much, but the chances of me being able to get myself together enough to get into the city and handle the crowds is about as much as getting to the moon. Anyway, we’ve worked out where we’re going to go and watch it on the Saturday. Our t-shirts haven’t arrived and I feel that I haven’t reached full bogan status without it, but we will see. Fingers crossed they get delivered tomorrow.

  1. Ufc!!! You 2 are so funny. Can you please take a selfie of the 2 of you in your tshirt a (fingers crossed theta trice tomorrow. Love Elle xoxo

  2. We also have recurring issues with Lego organization. I admire your determination! We (I haha) used to have a rather complicated system for sorting Luke’s Lego, separating by general piece type, etc but it was just too hard to keep up. I actually made my own Lego sorter – I cut some holes in the bottom of a plastic container using a hobby knife. The holes are big enough for small Lego (like flat 2×2 pieces or smaller) to fall through but not big Lego. It does a pretty good job. Now we just have big and small pieces, mini-figures and small props, wheels and a few special peices separated…. Also do you have any brick separators for taking the Lego apart? Might save some fingernails.
    The fish and chips sound really yummy. Not a easily available take-away food here and I do miss it from time to time.

    • Soren is getting a Lego sorting head for his birthday! Hopefully that will help with this.
      I think one of the biggest problems with our Lego is that the boys love Star Wars and have so many sets that have really specialised pieces and I don’t know how to sort them. Anyway, I guess we’ll just see how this goes…if it fails to work then I suppose we just go back to Lego stew and no one can ever remake a set after they take it apart.
      Good to hear from you- hope you and your family are all doing well.

      • Yes, the Lego sorting head is the same principle as my primitive homemade model. 🙂 I’m sure Soren will like it and you’ll find it useful. Luke has some Star Wars Lego too – the big ones like the Millennium Falcon, ATAT and Star Destroyer always stay made up and repaired as necessary – I refuse to pay that much money and have them disappear into the Lego sea… haha… but the smaller sets end up scattered and yes, it’s a big project to find all the pieces for any individual set. I’m sure our situation is a lot easier than yours though as we’ve only been buying small Lego for one kid so far (though Liam, who’s now 2, certainly plays with it too) but I’m sure you have a lot more than we do.
        We actually took the boys to Legoland in Denmark a few weeks ago which of course just fueled the level of Lego craziness around here.
        Anyway, we’re doing well! Will try to find some time to write a more detailed update soon.
        Hugs, Caitlinn
