It is LEGO MASTERS time

I never thought that when Evelien asked me to participate in this program but we are already watching episode 3 again tonight!

Yep. That is me and Evelien.

LEGO MASTERS it is.

It is really unreal and very exciting to see ourselves again!
In this difficult time that we all have to stay indoors, LEGO MASTERS is the best “outing” at the moment.
At home here too, we eagerly look forward to Saturday evenings.
Even though I have told them small pieces, the four of us are mesmerized watching LEGO MASTERS as we sit on the couch.
And one of my sons has been shouting for a few days now … “I’m so curious about Saturday Mom”.

It is Saturday evening … LEGO MASTERS time …

Speaking for myself (and I think for Evelien too), this was a very big adventure for both of us… also because we knew each other only from Instagram before the program.
So during the recordings, we had to manage certain things.
Evelien and I are very different and both have our own opinion and our uncertainty but I think we have found a good middle ground and a super friendship has emerged from it.

Banana

We also had a code word: “banana” for when one of us felt angry, sad or just didn’t know it anymore. Then the other person know that the other one needed some “me” time alone so that there would be no friction or saying things that we might regret later.
Hahahaha “banana” has become a thing in episode 1.

Bananas …


All in all a great time together.
We sometimes shout “why do you live in Zwolle and I in Zeeland?”

The Wonderful World Of LEGO Dots

I was happily surprised when I opened the LEGO mystery box.
There they were…
The new jewelry line (bracelets) and crafty DIY projects from LEGO named “DOTS”.

The bracelets first.

There were 4 bracelets in my mystery box:

All the bracelet sets have 33 pcs.
And if you have them all you can combine them all together.
It is LEGO after all.
Each bracelet has a length of 20 cm and for my wrist (I measured it tightly….17cm) it fits well.
So this set for sure fits for AFOLs as well.

Knabbel & Babbel

Chip & Dale are cartoon characters created at Walt Disney Productions by Bill Justice.

Origins

First meeting… with Pluto! Walt Disney made many short films in the army during the Second World War. Private Pluto from April 1943 is one of them. As a guard dog, Pluto must guard a small bunker. And by chance two squirrels use that bunker as a storage place. It is the first performance by Chip and Dale.
