Lego Man Toilet Roll Holder

Lego Man Toilet Roll Holder

I was looking for something new to print when I came across this awesome over-sized lego man toilet roll holder on thingiverse. Overall I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out. It was quite difficult to find a “normal” yellow filament. Most of the yellow filaments I found seemed to be fluorescent yellow. The one I ended up with was TwoTrees Yellow PLA filament, which although it didn’t look fluorescent in the description, it still has a fluorescent look to…

The run itself was quite nice. It…

Yowie Parkrun

Yowie Parkrun

A 4.30am start this morning to do Parkrun at Kilcoy. Belinda had already done the course before, at the parkrun opening of Yowie Parkrun. It was a rather simple course and beautiful run around the lake. We met Ron Grant, who was volunteering. Ron Grant was an Olympian, who was the first to run around Australia back in the 1980’s. He ran a total of 13,883kms in 217 days, which equates to an average of 64km per day!! Emma and…
