Fantastic Stamptastic

Our 3rd Britmums Live 2015 sponsor is the fantastic Stamptastic Ltd. You can read all about them here.

Stamptastic is a personalised stamp that you can use quickly and easily to stamp your name on virtually anything.

You can use it on fabric, wood, metal and some plastics.

It is great because it means no more sewing or ironing on labels for Mummy!

Stamptastic sent us a stamp to try, and it is fab. It comes with an ink pad, and you just simply press the name block onto the pad, then press onto whatever you want to label. Simples!

The ink lasts wash after wash.

We haven’t shown the stamp itself, or the inked stamp impression because it is my actual name :)

But it is clear, and easy to read. It is perfect to label shoes, wellies, clothes, bags, pens, pencils – virtually everything!

Stamptastic also make lots more stamps, such as an Address Stamp, Christmas Stamp and more. Have a look at their great range.

The personalised stamp block and ink pad are £22 with FREE UK Delivery.

My First Cinema Visit

Today we travelled ‘Up North’ for a little holiday. We always stay near The Trafford Centre and this year, for the first time, we are going to the cinema there. It will be my first visit EVER! The cinema is an Odeon one, and looks fab.

I am only 2. Nearly 2 1/2. We are going to see ‘Home’. I am sure I will be ok, because I’ve watched the trailers about 1000 times, and I LOVE Sheldon (Jim Parsons) from The Big Bang Theory – yes, thanks to my big bro, I watch it. A lot. And I know all their names (knock, knock, knock, Penny?) so I am super excited.

Mummy says it is on a HUGE screen, like a HUGE TV. I don’t really know what to expect!

I have asked Mummy to do / bring the following, to make sure our visit goes well!

1. A drink. I will get thirsty I’m sure.
2. My favourite snacks. I’ll probably drop half of them, and throw the rest, but, at least it will occupy me for a bit! Including raisins, blueberries, orange (nice smell for everyone), my toddler crisps, ( I’ll find the noise very funny I’m sure), and, of course chocolate. Several types of chocolate for bribery.
3. No ipad or colouring stuff, I don’t think I’ll be able to see, and my iPad will annoy other people!
4. A very small torch (or phone app torch). I will drop everything. At least twenty times.

Other top tips for my first cinema visit are…

Sit near the aisle so we can leave quickly without disturbing everyone else. If possible, book online to choose the seats.

Find out what time the actual film starts, and go then, missing the adverts. That will be up to half an hour less of me having to sit still!

Mummy, please don’t expect too much – I have never been anywhere like this before and might not like it.

Make sure I have a nap before – or book to go as early as is possible. When I am tired, I am grumpy.

This may sound a bit silly, but double check that it is a film I do want to see – one that will be interesting for me. And not one that is too long.

Have you been to the cinema with a tot? If so, how was it?

South Beach Tenby

South Beach Tenby is one of my favourite places. I go there a lot. There is a car park right down next to the beach, you can pay for a couple of hours, or all day. The beach gently slopes down to the sea, and it is a very, very wide beach.

Over looking the beach is The South Beach Bar and Grill, it is a really lovely place to eat or just have a drink. You can sit outside if it is a nice day, and look over the beach.

Although it looks very posh, you are welcomed to have just drinks, and they have high chairs, colouring / activity packs for children and good baby changing facilities (in a Disabled Loo).

We often meet Granny Jane here, and share a sandwich (which is HUGE) and a small bucket of chips – skinny chips. It is enough for lunch, and is £7. Mummy’s large latte is £2.50, it is a lovely large cup, and nice (says Mummy!)

On a sunny day, you cannot find anywhere more beautiful.

Dear Zayn Malik

Dear Zayn

You have, it has been officially announced, left One Direction. In the middle of a World Tour. Before that tour reaches the UK – where your fame and fortune were made, and you become one of the biggest boy bands in the world. Where girls, like my sister, followed you, screamed for you and fell in love with you.

Your fans adored you – worshipped you. I wonder if you know the power and effect you have on girls?
