On My Birthday

--by Helenconnell2, posted Jul 6, 2024
Yesterday was my birthday. I was 68 and I loaned £68 to three entrepreneurs through LendWithCare as part of my birthday.

On the day, we went to Durham and went round the Cathedral as we haven't been round it for a number of months. Back in 2013 we visited Durham for the day and they were creating a model of the cathedral in Lego bricks. As we were heading towards the cafe and shop I noticed a sign which invited visitors to come upstairs and see the Lego model. I told my husband I wanted to do that after we'd had a drink.

We went upstairs and were amazed by the model which contains 299, 876 bricks. One of the volunteers told us the history of it being moved after we explained we had been two of the people who placed a brick. The photod don't do it justice.
