Because you've "lost" the other one?
I would just get another one as you definitely don't want to look like Ken Dodd! In fact its a choice between buying another hair dryer or a tickling stick! No contest really.

talking of ken Dodd.... I was called that on holiday when we went to Cyprus!!.. when I came out of the pool, my hair dried 'naturally' and OMG..... Ken Dodd arrived!!
I have got natural curly hair anyway and it needs a bit of taming or else it frizzes...

we haven't heard off Bunty so I presume she is:
a) in hiding
b) gone for a new hairdryer.....

At home I keep all the caravan stuff together in a big cupboard and it definitely wasn't there because that cupboard is now empty, we brought it all to the van yesterday. Can't imagine why I would have decided to take it home but I must have, and put it in a 'safe' ie. stupid, place.
Wish my hair was like yours scampi, I just look like ken Dodd if I don't dry it with a dryer, not a good look
Now, can I justify buying another one??

I would have to get another one Bunty - otherwise I would be accused of scaring everyone lol. I have 2 at home - 1 for emergencies and my "proper"one and 2 lots of straighteners - I also have 1 hairdryer and straighteners at the van. I my hairdryer blows u at the van Mr Traction would be sent straight to the shop and I would be in hiding

Well, I found my travel hair dryer while hunting for my proper one, it was tucked into an end pocket of my weekend bag, so I've been using that...not wonderful (travel hair dryers just don't cut the mustard do they??) but a darned sight better than the ken dodd look.
Having the weekend with son and daughter in law so I'm sure she'll take pity and let me use hers for a couple of days.
A tickling stick sounds very interesting, Gill

Neither my partner or my kids spoke to me the WHOLE WAY

It's funny now when I look back, and needless to say I haven't forgotten it since! We keep a spare glucose inj in the fridge in the caravan now as well, as the nearest A&E is 10 miles away through winding (unlit) country lanes.

What's the most important item YOU have forgotten?
This should be interesting!
I'd forgotten to turn the heating off and we had to go back once we arrived home, Luckily its only a half hour drive.

Went out and bought a wifi thermostat so now i can turn off or on from home

I think my biggest forgotten item was whilst we set off from Leeds to Cley( N.Norfolk ) for a fortnights holiday bird watching and photographing same . Just left AI at the Newark turnoff going onto A17 for Kings Lynn and I suddenly announced to my wife I’ve forgotten the lens ( my pride and joy was my 500mm prime ) This is rather a big item that travels I it’s own suitcase so not unnoticeable.
I felt a real plonker having to turn round and go back home to get it.
