I was driving home the other day and there was a delivery truck outside of a neighbour’s house.

He had giant empty boxes at the end of the driveway that he was breaking down to put back onto the truck for recycling.

I couldn’t stop myself – this looked like too much fun – so I stopped and asked if he would mind giving me a couple of boxes.

The kindness of strangers!

It is something we’ll look into but for now, we have future adventures with our Minecraft headquarters.
