The things you find in charity shops

How cool is this?
 My latest charity shop find: a large Brio train set. Put together by my own fair hands. All I need now is a man to work out how to make it into one complete circuit ... 

I've left Husband to it.

Oh I know ... but I am sure I could manage to put it together. I know the sort of things that you get in charity shops .. for the last 3 weeks I have been volunteering in one. Shaw Trust that helps disabled or disadvantaged people get back into work. You should see the books that my grandchildren have now .. more than a library ha ha

I have one of these sets in my loft from when my boys were little .... expect it will be full of wood work before it will ever be used again.... :-(

I think so, cherrypie.

No, I don't have the right sort of mind - visual spatial awareness or something, anne. There's a Shaw trust charity shop in Egham where Elder Son lives. they have posh stuff in theirs!

I hope so, jams.

my children never had it but I think this has extra bits, sally.

What does brio mean?

I was always promised a trainset in childhood and I never got one! (Boo-hoo.)
