Requiem For Esteem

Finding Inspiration In Words, Again I recently had to leave town for work. After packing my bags (including the now mandatory for any journey off the property, LEGO minifigures), I grabbed a book from our bookshelves (I’d just finished the latest BricksCulture magazine cover to cover) for the plane flight and the few days away.

Rebel Grrrl recap

Lego girls to the front A fortnight ago I challenged myself to embrace my inner riot grrrl, and to post only photos of female Lego minifigures on Instagram using the #legogirlstothefront tag. When she talks, I hear the revolution In her hips, there’s revolutions When she walks, the revolution’s coming In her kiss, I taste …

A play with words

A play on with words What’s the good word? Anyone who’s read my posts here on Stuck in Plastic, or indeed, chatted with me, will know that I have a tendency to go off on a tangent. Bear with me! This post goes way out there, but hopefully I can reel it back to a …

Succession session

New kids off the country block From rant to gallivant. From Bellbrae to Erskine Falls.

Buy, Bye Bye

A hard act to swallow Allow me, if you will, to address the plastic elephant in the room. Numbers. I grew up on a steady diet of mathematics as a kid. I like numbers. Numbers don’t lie. Words can be fraudulent. Current. Season. Mine. All these words have multiple meanings. But the number 3 is …

Rainy Day Activities

Weather or not As my northern hemisphere friends gloat of warm weather and sunshiny days (maybe not my UK friends) I find myself bunkered down indoors with the fire lit as sheeting rain pummels the roof.
