I was planning to write an interesting blog post tonight, and had been thinking of a variety of different topics I could cover. After a long and quite busy day at work, I thought to myself “I’d like to relax tonight, but I haven’t written a blog for a while – I’d better get my arse in to gear”. Everything was going to plan, until I received the following photo via text message from my wife – at around 5pm:
It appears there had been an explosion at a Lego factory. Either that, or Robert’s play-date – visiting our house for the very first time – wasn’t quite as fond of the “No colour-mixing” rule as I am…
So instead of writing a long blog post, I shall be sitting on the floor – thankfully accompanied by wine and the ‘Great British Bake Off’ – and sorting all the bricks back in to their trays.
And yes, before you tell me, I KNOW I am anally retentive and probably take our Lego storage solution FAR too seriously. But hey – that’s just how I roll!
Wish me luck…

It’s not so much the fact you sort lego that I object to, its that you have the methodology wrong.
Common wisdom has it that you sort by piece rather than colour
Did you ever use Duplo or was it straight to lego?
Wow, the fact you have a system, other than pawing through a gigantic box of parts is impressive to me! My boys love to play with my husbands old legos, but Ive never thought of organizing them in any particular manner.
