Not since man invented the wheel and John West introduced no-drain tinned tuna have I been so excited! I'm talking about the Aerobed that we sell here on QVC! Such clever clever people. Actually I'm not talking am I? This is probably closer to gibbering – if you can do that using the written word. So… let me take a breath and explain.
I was introduced to this amazing brand of self-inflating beds about a year ago, and became the proud owner of one just over a month ago. It arrived in a relatively small box, but within minutes the kids were all over it like locusts. Inside it was the miracle of mattresses...
All you need to do to bring to life this small flock-covered creation is plug it in, and in less than a minute it has turned into a bed! And not just any bed either – as the company say 'The finest alternative sleep system!' and I have to agree! Well we didn't even wait to put it in a bedroom – as you can see I was ready for forty winks in 60 seconds, on the hall floor! (left)
I had great plans to impress Colin's son Richard when he came to stay, but Lucy had got there first and our Aerobed was enjoying the sea breezes in Padstow, Cornwall! You see that's the joy of owning something like this. It's portable, a doddle to inflate, one button to press to deflate, and sooooooooooo comfortable.
Think of the alternatives… a lilo that you'll have to blow up by mouth cos you've lost the pump; oh and once you've bust a gut inflating it, you find there's a leak in it when you wake up flat on the floor. You could always take the cushions off the sofa but odds on, you'll find your extremeties fall into the gaps!
Of course there's always the old canvas camp bed that has 6 metal strut things that you have to slot into place and then… it's too boring to even write about… but let's not forget the sun chair that's fine after a couple of glasses of wine, but has a tendency to snap shut when you make the slightest movement and leaves you trapped for all to titter at…
Take a look at it, you're going to LOVE it! And so will your kids, your mum, your sister, your mates… oh, and your pets (see Willows left)!
Have a great weekend.
