The other day after dinner with friends ended slightly too early, it was decided that we would return to their house for one last glass of wine (I might tell you that that last one is the killer glass. That’s the one that will give you the hangover, but still we’re not here to talk about that).
It was, allegedly, a summer evening and we all fancied sitting in their garden but there was a definite chill in their. As there has been since about November if you ask me, but we’re not here to talk about that either. The point was that my friend casually produced a couple of blankets from a cupboard in the hall and we ended up sitting in the garden for far too long. The blankets were warm, the wine was flowing, the night was young(ish). Well younger than us anyway.
Anyway, it got me to thinking about throws. I don’t have any. I have never draped one casually over the arm of a sofa. Well only to keep the cat off. But I see now I have been going wrong. Beautiful blankets are a necessary part of every household.
You need them to cosy up those summer evenings in the garden, maybe you do need one on the sofa to warm your toes on cold winter evenings. Actually, you really need one for those moments when you have no roof on your house and the summer won’t come and so you have to put a towel over the duvet to keep warm. But, sighs, we’re probably not here to talk about that either. Although I could. At length.
Clearly, the lack of roof and cold summer nights has addled my brain. Someone pass my credit card now. I need blankets.

Drum banging over, it’s a cool throw. Buying it will allow you to sit in the garden drinking wine at all times and in all weathers.
