When Hubby retired last year he needed a wee project. So he decided to turn the spare bedroom into a playroom for our two grandsons (although I think there was a more selfish reason!).
He got units to fit around an alcove in the room for storage and a place where the boys could sit and make up Lego. Some cute lights made it a bit brighter.
Once that was done, then of course the Lego had to be sorted into colour co-ordinated drawers. Then began the huge task of making up all the Lego our sons had left at home. I don't for one minute believe this was a task Hubby was dreading - he spent hours up there making up lots of the models. Fortunately right from our very first Lego purchase, sometime in the 1980s, we had kept all the instruction leaflets which are now in folders.
The railway track was set out and Lego Town was born.
After they left, Hubby spent as much time back up in the room "fixing" the "amendments" that had been made to the various models. All the toys and books left behind by our sons are in that room, so it is a great "rainy day" place when the grandsons come to visit.
