R2D2 by DeAgostini Issue 30

I’m about 20 issues behind so decided today to try and catch up. This one took a bit longer than usual as there were more steps. Took about 20 minutes in all.

Issue 30 came with the leg motor assembly and this has to be fitted into the leg assembly and then the covers put on for a reasonably complete leg with motor and infrared sensor now mounted:

Lets Rock Christmas

Lets-Rock-Christmas-613x299-84dfeb474c

Last night was the Lets Rock Christmas show at the Wembley SSE Arena in London. Great night. Got there around 6.30pm for doors opening. The show started at around 7.00pm with Pat Sharp doing his DJ thing. Live acts started at 7.30pm until about 11.00pm

Fantastic 80’s night with a Christmas theme. All the acts were great but my favourites were Go West, Tiny Hadley and Kim Wilde.

Had a bit of a nightmare getting home. All the tubes were busy and when we got to Paddington, the train was cancelled and so everyone tried to get on the next one. This meant the train was packed. every space in the aisles and by the doors was jam packed with people complaining and more people trying to squeeze on. After 20 minutes the driver announced that he was refusing to drive the train due to overcrowding and then after another few minutes announced we should all board the longer train opposite prompting a stampede.

We found seats and looked forward to getting home. About 20 minutes into the journey a group of people who had been to London for their office party got a little excited when one of them (the boss as it turned out) decided to be sick into his present bag. A couple of minutes later this then spilled out onto the floor as the bag was made of paper. The sick also spilled onto his friend sat next to him, his shoes etc. This started a chain reaction of people feeling ill!

Thankfully a short while later we managed to leave the train and take the car home.
