Annie gave me another landmark Nanoblock set for Christmas - I've now got three landmarks that I've been to sitting on my desk :)
Earlier in the year they resurfaced our road. But they did it using their new horrible method of just putting a bit of tar down and smooshing a bit of gravel into it. Absolutely appalling way to resurface a road, and there were potholes in it within a couple of months.
So I was all WTF when for this little rest area on the Federal Highway just at the north end of Canberra where they did a full hot-bitumen treatment *for a carpark* !! So wrong.
And some little kid lost this troll head near our house. Someone put it on top of our letterbox where I found it when I got home. I considered leaving it back out there in case the kid came back, but it was just a Maccas happy meal troll, not particularly exciting or irreplaceable. So I still have it on my desk.

FQ Topic: Childhood
FQ1: Where did you live out your childhood years?
Como, Sydney, Australia
FQ2: As a child, what was your favorite toy, book, television show, and cartoon character?
Toy? As a little kid it was "Ducky" an elongated rubber duck thing. In 1983 I made "Cutie" - essentially a pompom which I still have and travel the world with.
Favourite book? I didn't read many books, I found reading long stories tedious. I liked TinTin and Asterix comics. Choose your own adventures. Horse books.
TV show? I remember lots from my teenage years. As a child? Probably my earliest memory of a favourite tv show would be Whacky Races. I was always Penelope. We used to watch it with a kid from our school, Cosmos, before we went to school.
Cartoon character? Dunno. I liked Warner Brothers cartoons later on, and Inspector Gadget..
FQ3: Charm us with a favorite childhood memory...
Here's a whole blog of it...
FQ PHOTO-OP: Show us a photo of just how adorable you were as a child.
meh. This was me on our front balcony.
This is the same view forty years later..
This was the little Nanoblocks Neuschwanstein castle I got for Christmas from Annie. How cute is it!
The little teeny pieces are quite difficult to work with and once attached it's quite hard to pull them apart.
There were quite a few leftover pieces too.
