I remember, perfectly, when it was filmed in Bournemouth - because it was always by the seaside - being in it myself as a backing dancer with lots of other children from a local Dance School - all of us about 13 - with Harpo singing 'Movie Star, Movie Star, You think you are a Movie Star...' well before the days of videos, let alone Sky +, so I never even got to see it.
Anyway, the Tots 100 is holding its own Summer Special by way of a Bloggers Summer Party - again by the seaside - on August 17th on Hove Lawns, near Brighton. Only they've teamed up with Zippos Circus with a variety of acts from across the world to put on a great time to be had by all the family.
Who's not up for a relaxed lunch, brilliant circus workshops - for all ages, a two hour 'off the scale awesome show' (Daily Telegraph), followed by an informal barbecue picnic and a paddle?
Not to mention catching up with other Bloggers.
Now that bit is easier said than done! Some of us are more shy than others, less well connected and have experiences that might make us nervous about pitching up without knowing anyone, despite having our families to cling on to. I'm one of them, so I thought it might be nice to do a linky, introduce ourselves and be able to say Hello to one another in a more familiar vein than otherwise.
Please join in.
This is me:
|Hi. My name's Anya.|
We only live a few miles away from where this event is taking place so didn't think twice before booking. I'll be there, outnumbered by males, with my fab (but even older than me) boyfriend and my maniacal three year old son and the bossy seven year old other one. I'll probably have a wrist strap on the former (not the boyfriend, the 3yo - although - there's a thought!) and it's likely you'll hear us before you see us, so finding us should be easy enough if you fancy.
Do let us know if you're coming, what you look like and tell us a bit about your blog and yourself. We'll look forward to meeting you there. It's Summer, it's the Tots 100 party and it sure is going to be special!
If you haven't purchased a ticket and you'd like to join us, you can drop them an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and (numbers permitting) they can add you to the guest list.
