I bought an XL in the end and gave the standard to my wife. They’ve been perfect over the last few hot nights, if a little too warm. I’m one of those people that likes to have something over me to sleep, even if it’s a cotton sarong or throw.
After several days of intense sun, the house has gone from being a lovely cool haven to a heat radiating hotbox. I wandered into the garden last night to see a few of the Perseids and it felt quite a lot cooler out there than indoors. The bell tent is up for my stepson and grandson to use at the weekends and there are two carp bedchairs inside. So I went indoors, woke Madam from her troubled slumber and us and the dogs traipsed out with our Jungle blankets, a lantern, and a couple of bottles of water. Got a lovely cool nights sleep.
