My Own Christmas Pressies !!!

Post by Free Spirit on Wed 24 Nov 2010, 7:36 am

Hi all, I think quite a few of us are thinking about Christmas and what sort of pressies we would like to get around this time of year.

I started planning several months ago by Lay-Bying a few items which has resulted in me paying off the first one of the four today.

So in my hot little hands ready to build is the Star Wars Battle of Endor # 8038.

May the force be with you !!!

I won't be getting myself much for Christmas, but perhaps in the new year if the rumors of cheaper rechargeable batteries are true I'll put in a S@H order. And I'm on the look out for a cheap way to buy a Grand Emporium or two.

I've just finalised payment of some more Christmas Pressies which are as follows,

Winter Bakery # 10216
Winter Toy Shop # 10199

Just need to buy lots of bricks to build a mountain for these beauties to be part of my City Layout.

It is just over a week before Christmas Day and I have chosen my pressie to buy myself which happens to be the Pet Shop Modular 10218 !!!

I originally bought one a year ago and parted with it knowing that I would replace it so after finding one at a good price I bought it and cannot wait for it to arrive in between christmas and the new year legohappy

I finally caved and bought the Star Wars Tie Fighter, I've wanted it for ages so thought I'd treat myself to it as a Christmas Present.

So I'll get a nice (fake) surprise Christmas morning when I go under the tree and find a gift from Santa that is actually for me!

If I fake it enough, my daughter will believe in Santa for atleast another year.

I bought two Maersk trains from a German bricklink store before they were discontinued as my Christmas present. Then David Jones had 20% off and free shipping so I bought a second GE and the Town Hall.

My birthday is at the start of Feb so I hope I'll be able to get a few Horrizon expresses then legosmile2
