I have been asked to review, promote and link to a number of products since becoming a 'blogger' (I bloody hate that term, but if the shoe fits...)
Anyway, I have largely said no. Thanks but no thanks, as I do not want my page becoming a try this/buy this catalogue.
And then I came across local businesswoman (and mum) Becky, owner of Playful Little Places, and I thought HELL YES. I want in on the teepee action.
So I am shamelessly capitalising on my blog following to help Becky sell some teepees. And offer you the chance to win one (see below). And if we're being honest to get myself a free one (with matching cushions and bunting). Happy days.

If you have been reading my blog, you will realise neither of the aforementioned activities occur on my watch, and I fail miserably at posing my children Boden Catalogue style (mainly because they don't follow instructions without bribes, and I am running low on bourbons).
But we gave the teepee a go and it was FUN.
Kids love dens, and Boy One was absolutely delighted with his new one, which we have to call the 'Bat Cave'. He spent a considerable amount of time gathering up toys to stash in his Bat Cave, and for this reason alone I am a massive fan. It bought me HALF AN HOUR'S PEACE.
What's more, it isn't offensive to the eye. I mean it's a beaut. Becky is a curtain maker and that quality is evident. As is the fact she is a mum because the fabric is machine washable (handy, as I give it a week before sick/poo/dairylea appears in the creases).
So thank you Becky, because you made Boy One's day. And mine, actually.
The kids playing Angry Birds on the iPad (again) sometimes makes me feel like a terrible mother. The kids playing angry birds on the iPad IN A TEEPEE pretty much guarantees a Mum of The Year nomination.

Though there's no pleasing some people...
