Santa (myself) got me the 5004419 Classic Knights Minifigure commemorative set.

It is an updated version of the 6012 Siege Cart which I've fond memories of and comes with a cool booklet.

Also got 101 grey 3009 bricks!

Built a secret Santa present of 60231 ,freya mccloud -fire chief with no helmet or breathing apparatus, I'm a 6wide fan but this is overly massive with no doors ,and ladder so high it'd need a ladder to get it .it was on my wanted list but it's definitely a kid toy .my only positive was how roof is held up by a 2x1 hinge plate ,oh and the new axe.has a parts wasting  so saved a few by not using them.my enjoyment was building from pictures of occasional glances at manual, big pick-up but I can't big it up for an adult collection

I love the mug with the flaming marshmallow that set John!

Better late than never but I was thrilled with my Christmas haul:

Himself:  60202 People Pack - Outdoor Adventures
60249 Street Sweeper
60233 Donut Shop Opening


Brickset Secret Santa: 70420 Hidden Side Graveyard Mystery

Me (I always buy myself a Christmas present!):  31097 Townhouse, Petshop & Cafe


My 8 year old was given 42098 Car Transporter by his uncle as a birthmas present 😲 Actually so glad that I don’t like a technic or I would be soooo jealous!!

The technic set would be my go to, just had to see Your B.S. name, I say I won't do it next year but I will, some gifting isn't as good as others, but it's nice to receive

I got the hidden side haunted high school, 70425.  Really enjoyed building which I only got to do yesterday. Haven't got the app to it yet but it was a fun build with lots of hidden features. Was away for a couple of weeks with no mobile reception and no where to put my Lego but it was worth the wait :)

 Great for Halloween displays
