OK, this is probably the last thing you expect me to admit to.
But as a child, for a brief period, I collected stamps.
This was before I’d been to any foreign countries, so I was absolutely fascinated with the fact that the stamps could come from Fiji, or Africa, or any faraway place; and I loved looking at the beautiful designs.
So I was thrilled to discover the Royal Mail has brought out a fabulous collection of collectable Thomas the Tank Engine stamps, to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Thomas creator Reverend W Awdry. Bright and colourful, they’re perfect for getting kids interested in collecting. And the good news is I have 10 sets to give away.
All you have to do is leave your answer to the following question below by the closing date (next Thursday) and the winner will be chosen at random. Usual The Mum Blog competition rules apply.
And meanwhile, if you want to buy some collectable stamps for your kids *cough* just click here.
