When you get that phone call!

I am sat in my office on a grey January day, slippers on and enjoying a quick cuppa in-between trying to cross off a trillion jobs on my to do list.

So of course what do you do when your busy, you write a blog!

So this time 12 months ago I was doing something quite different to today and this is the reason I am so busy right now. This time last year I was heading to my first meeting with the team behind Dragons Den.

In early 2017, I received a phone call out of the blue. It was the team behind Dragons Den and they asked if I would be interested in potentially appearing on the show! Well how about that for a grey January day! It quickly put pay to my January blues.

What I didn’t register at the time of taking the call was the fact that I had two weeks to get all the paperwork to them that they required. When I say there was a lot, I mean like a truck load. This is where team Tickle Tots came in, we spent days pulling invoices out of mailboxes and photocopying design registration documents and analysing figures. I may need to confess now that it may have got a little out of control, and resulted in copious amounts of tea, biscuits and of course the odd glass of wine to get us through!
