Random

Odd stories and incidents which have been part of the rich tapestry of my life. May well have left their mark, but then again they maybe completely random. Its a chaotic mixture of tales of adventure, mishap and occasion which I hope you find entertaining. I imagine that this section may well develop into the most comprehensive section because as memories pop up I will be adding them in at first as a brief post and then when time allows flesh out with a more comprehensive description with any available photographs – enjoy cos its been a rollercoaster.

Note from Legoflife - This chapter should cover odd stories and happenings tagged as "Random" that don’t necessarily fit neatly into one of the other chapters but may fall into one or two of the categories
