Where can you buy those silver backed picnic blankets to put down in the bedrooms?

I get you, Carriedaway - it took me at least 2 years to persuade DH to come camping. Now he's hooked and so long as he has a fire and his axe then he's happy.

Thanks Annanon - now I'll know them if I see them!

Actually, they are in stock from the 16th May.

ooh dh would love a SIM, he's stuck with roll mats atm.

I have a fat aric I bought ages ago when I first started reading the camping threads. I got caught up in all the excitment and bought one even though I didn't even own a tent at the time blush

Its taken me this long to talk dh into camping.

I have these extra large ones from Lidl. They have been great for insulating under the air bed - definitely makes a difference. The website says they are back in stock now.

It always sounds, usually to announce the imminent arrival of the aldi sim.

That's what I was looking for Slubber. I can't find them on Ebay so will have to wait for the Aldi/Lidl klaxon

picnic blanket backed with heavy duty silver foilness. Have never believed the thermal magics of sticking them under your sleeping mats/air beds at night but the fabric + silver lining does give a pleasing underfoot thickness to the whole thing.

Are they actually picnic blankets or the silver things runners wrap round themselves.

I'm not sure I'm looking for the right things.

I am going to put eyelets in one of mine so it can become a temporary and most excellent shade inducing tarp for the beach in hot forrin. i am extremely pleased with myself for thinking of this. The silver backedness wiil make some serious fuck off shade propped up with my extendable lightweight tarp poles (yet to be purchased)
