Complete and utter lust...

I made the fatal mistake of picking up the latest Living Etc before bed last night and stumbled across this:It's the Paint your Own Festival Tent (see below for a suggested after shot)and of course I fell instantly in love. It's just what I need for my Christmas road trip with Sis (the perfect Christmas present for myself, in fact) and, even better, it's on special!

But on their website they say they won't ship out of the UK. WAAAAH!

I've just sent them a very grovelly email begging them to bend their rules for me (I even mentioned cherries on top) so we'll see how it goes. Fingers, toes, arms, legs and eyes crossed...

This looks really cool, but one thing to consider is that it has no Fly cover, This means it will leak in rain.
Its looks good for fun though :)

My FIL lives in England. David will be there in November if you want him to pick one up for you. It is such a cool idea.

Oh yeah - I forget about rain in this drought ridden country of ours...

But NZ is green and that green has to come from somewhere (mould perhaps from all that dampness?)

Tent update: At the same time I got an email from a friend in England saying she was happy to act as a mail "bounce" I got a phone message from my (rather sensible) sister pointing out that perhaps it's not such a great idea standing out in a camping ground in this day and age.

So I suspect the idea of a daisy covered tent to match the daisy covered car has been shot down in flames. For tonight, anyway....
