We were very kindly asked by online gift retailer UtterlyPersonal.co.uk
to review just one of hundreds of wonderful personalised gifts that they
have on offer....it was very hard to choose, as they supply personalised gifts for just about every single occasion..Birthdays,Weddings, Christenings,
even personalised gifts for pets. But with Christmas just around the corner
we decided on the personalised Giraffe Baby Pyjama Case.
Our son who loves soft toys, saw it and fell in love with it and
staked his claim on it, before he even saw his name on it, The
Giraffe Baby Pyjama Case is beautifully designed and
constructed, meeting all British Safety Standards.
It is a wonderful toy. Soft to the touch so any young child
will simply love to hug and cuddle it. But it also has a practical
element for Parents as it is doubles up as a pyjama case.
Velcro on the back holds the pyjamas securely inside,which in
turn will add to the softness thus making the toy even more cuddly.
It can even hold a small hot water bottle instead of pyjamas for
those cold winter nights. Parents may even like to cuddle it now
and again too and as this beautiful toy has been personalised
there can be no arguments between family members as to who this
lovely toy belongs too! So adults be warned you can't stake your
claim on it if your name isn't on it!
We found enclosed with the toy a 'Giraffe Baby Birth Certificate',
on it is a little note from the 'Giraffe Baby' telling the 'owner'
what uses the pyjama case has.Also at the bottom of the
certificate, there is provision for the 'Owner's name' plus the name
of the 'Giraffe Baby'....come on now, who doesn't like to give
their cuddly toys a name. Plus room for the 'Giraffe Baby's birthday'.
All in all this is a wonderful toy and every child deserves one
especially one that has been personalised just for them.
So why not take a look at the brilliant range of products on offer
at UtterlyPersonal.co.uk as we feel confident you will find a
fantastic personalised gift for someone in your life, young or old.
I was very lucky to win some hand painted false nails from
Pretty Little Nails
I gave xameliax free rein and let her imagination go with the design
only telling her I would like powder shades and she could do
anything else. So it was a great surprise when my beautifully
packaged nails arrived.
My nails are absolutely beautiful, they came with easy to read
instructions on how to apply them even coming with sticky tabs.
Although I chose to put them on with glue as I wanted them
to stay on for longer. I could not wait for any occasion so
Based on the best selling novel from 1960 by Stan Barstow. 'A Kind of Loving' directed by John Schlesinger, hit British cinema screens in 1962 and just like the 1960 film, 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' brought cinema goers into the gritty realism world of working class Northern England.
Set against the somewhat bleak, Industrial North.The film revolves around such places as the factory, Dance halls and pubs.Something that was all too familiar to Stan Barstow.
Trying to shrug off his 'working class traditions' Vic Brown lands himself a 'white collar' job as a draftsman in a local engineering firm. It is in the factory where he notices Ingrid, one of the typists, who he eventually asks out to the cinema.The awkwardness of their relationship is highlighted by their inability to express their feelings. Ingrid worries that Vic thinks she is just a common girl. Whereas Vic wonders whether Ingrid is as interesting as he first thought.
Their romance displays an obvious lack of sentiment. Vic thinks he is in love with Ingrid. But then on the other hand he thinks that he can't stand the sight of her.Ingrid wants nothing more than to fall in love. Get married, get a home and have children.Vic would like the stability of a wife, a house and children but the nagging question of 'Is there more in life?' keeps popping into his head confusing him.
It's not until Ingrid's mother goes away for a few days that the relationship develops into a full blown affair.Then Vic realises that Ingrid is just another girl, a 'conquest', and he stops seeing her.They meet up again at a firm's Dance where Ingrid breaks the news to Vic that she is pregnant.Vic is suddenly sucked into the stark, frightening reality of life and he feels obliged to 'do the right thing' and asks Ingrid to marry him.
Then his troubles really begin... his mother-in-law looks down her nose at him with obvious dislike and is so overbearing and dominates their lives she begins to drive a wedge between them.
Ingrid has a miscarriage and her mother deliberately fails to tell Vic that she is in hospital. This is too much for Vic who now realises that he need not have married Ingrid, but the decency within takes over and he becomes determined to find a small house for him and Ingrid to make a fresh start together with their own 'Kind of Loving'.
One of the all time classic scenes from the film is the one where Vic staggers home drunk and is confronted by his Mother-in-law that leads to the famous quotation from that scene "How dare you! How dare you say such filthy disgusting things!You come into this house drunk, filthy drunk!You're filthy!You talk filth! You ARE filth.You're filth!You filthy pig!You filthy,disgusting pig! Filth.FILTH!" of course you have to watch this classic scene to appreciate the confrontation and when Vic is sick on the floor while his mother-in-law is ranting at him is sheer poetry.
