    Had idle hands for the last couple of days, got to browsing the Lego Technic kits on Amazon Au. I have ordered the mobile crane kit 1200 plus parts so will keep me occupied for a while.

    It will be delivered next Wednesday.

    Here's the link to the kit which is reasonably priced for a starter.

    That's so cool! I envy you.

    Mail for my neighbour in my mailbox today!
    He's moved house, from living in a chalet in the back garden of my opposite neighbours to a trailer in my garden. He brought his dog, cats, turkeys and chickens as well, but I hadn't realised it means getting his mail in my mailbox as well. :)

    My new Samsung Galaxy A52 5G phone came from Amazon Au today.

    The other bits for the phone did not arrive though, so the phone will have no protective cover till next.

    Package from Amazon Au, HARIBOL USB C Cable, 2M USB C to USB A, 3 Pack Type C to USB Fast Charging Cables.

    These are of good quality and a lot cheaper from Amazon than the local Officeworks store.

    Had been anxiously awaiting the fine for having forgotten to pay a road toll. We forgot on the way out and only remembered on the way back 5 days later. All the info said it was £37 no exceptions. (We used to have an account but it was stopped through lockdown due to lack of use!)
    So nice to find, if its a first 'forgetting' for that car, that they only charge the crossing fee of £2.50
    All we have to do is remember to use a different car each time in future!!
    Or not go that route, or remember to pay it online after crossing
