taking ds1 away next week on my own (!) dh is going away seperately for a break, i'm going to visit my sister. relaly don't want to be waking up with the owls (let alone the larks) and sis doens't have blackout up yet in her new house so...

what do you think of the idea of using those foil-ish blankets they use at marathons....they'd be reallly light, but would thye work in term of light getting in????

tell me if you think my genius plan is going to go wrong...and where can i get them cheap?

Why not use black bin bags

very very cheap

and can be recycled

selotape to windows

good tip rt. liked the thought of these tho as they are bigger and might work one per window, rather than taping loads of stuff together. also so light that blutack might work, don't want to ruin sisters paintwork...

thanks tho

Could tape them together before putting on window

Have no idea how to get the tin foil things though

If you can get them give them a try
