Build your Own Tomica Cars in Tokyo Japan

July 13, 2016

In another life, the only car I could have reliably named on the road was a Volkswagon Beetle but my husband has managed to pass on his passion for vehicles down to the next generation and now if I DON’T know the cars around me, I’d be totally outnumbered in the family.  So I try […]

October 23, 2015

My world is currently a strange place where the two hurricane forces that control it are always quizzing me on my Star Wars knowledge, making me read everything they can get their hands on about Star Wars and cutting and turning any paper/boxes/washi tape I’ve left on low shelves into Star Wars creations that litter […]
