Hello. It's business as usual here at Tightwad Towers over the Easter period. More photo's in the pipeline, more shopping bags to make, more walking to do, and some lounging in the garden when the sun comes out. I did a yellow sticker shop on Wednesday night and struck lucky, the fridge is full. I had intended to do a £40 shop so I could use a £6 off voucher, but after filling the trolley with reductions, which only came to £9 something, I knew I would have no chance of reaching the target. No point in wandering round the shop trying to decide what to buy when I didn't actually need anything else.
Here are the last few photo's from my visit to Hull on Tuesday. I remember Lego as being quite basic when I was young, it consisted of bricks and flat pieces to stick the bricks onto. Nowadays there is a lot more variety in the shapes it comes in, and you can construct almost anything with it, including flowers. The daffodil display was very popular, especially with the kids who could meander between them and pretend to water them with the Lego watering can.
Have a little titter at this.
The City of Culture exhibits are spread out in different locations, so the Land Train was handy for those who would rather ride than walk.
Dancing fountains are advertised as being in the city centre but I couldn't find them. I asked a volunteer who said that they had done a trial run and the drainage was found to have a problem, so they are under repair at the moment. They should be working soon. There are cars filled with sand down at The deep, but I didn't have time to go and see them, maybe next time.
Enjoy your weekend, we'll catch up soon.
