I didn't realise the kitchen sliding windows would let in quite so much...are you out of warranty ? :embarrased

Actually I'm just getting a dryrobe for my running activities, was hoping it would work nicely for those emergency trips to the toilet blocks in 'orrible weather too.
Defo Dryrobe!!

pair of "Crocs" shoes
Especially if they are a design without the holes round the sides. I had some winter ones with a fleece lining and holes just on top. They were seriously too warm so took the inner out. That was 10 years ago and they’re still going strong, camping at at home.

My sister bought me a honcho. It’s a fleecy poncho with hood and pouch pocket. Great as a poncho, dressing gown, modesty changing “room” and doubles as a blanket. If I have to get out of the van in the night/morning it covers everything. I can leave it loose or tie a belt (or usually an old bit of string) around it. Was so impressed bought one for my hubby. They come in a fleece carry bag, but I turned ours into snoods for around the next and over the head. Super cosy, especially if sitting out and the sun goes down or at a festival. They have load of designs in 4 sizes, large to kids, and for anyone who wants/needs it, camouflage too. :thumb. Prices from £10-£25.

Doing a search for the honcho address I found out that Thermarest (we have a couple of their inflatable mattresses and they’re excellent quality) do a padded, sleeping bag material poncho.

I've got too much padding so probably wont bother, do like a pair of Crocs though currently running a bright red pair.

Snazzy, I have blue, fascia pink, purple and lilac (my crazy sister bought me a pair and because I liked them got me some more). My hubby has black, but think he’d go for a nice Liverpool red.

A Buff.
Amazes me how such a small piece of fabric keeps me warm.

So let’ all agree, a buff, pair of crocs and a head torch? Don’t really need much else? :thumb
Should be the official attire of all Cali owners throughout Europe "yep, they own a Cali son" "how do you know dad?" "Just wearing crocs, buff and a head torch gives it away every time son!" :D :D :D :veryfunny

Looking to buy
Funny and useful replies. Fab. got the head torch and buff, just need to get me some crocs, my ex hubby swears by his, and i recall that when i bought them was advised that sizing is different to UK, but cant remember which way it goes.
