Freezing here too. Worse.. I have some stretched muscles around my neck from over doing it I suspect. Up at 5 am, train to work no car, mountain, work party drinking eating, train home, 10 minute walk at high speed home. Next day bad neck.... Party or train did it. The 5am and mountain I do every day. hehe..

I've had to put the seat so upright that my head is against the headrest.. Other wise the acceleration (unbelievable because there isn't much) pulls those muscles.... hehe

Boiler I don't even know where it is.... benefit of renting I guess..

Snowing here. Very very cold. Heating isn't having the desired effect.

Would someone like to come and built an internal wall in the house for me? FOC of course.

See, our house has a 2 storey extension on it.

Short version - these houses have adjoining 'wash houses', which are then built on to create a 2 storey.

HOWEVER! These are only a single skin brick wall. And you can bloody tell. Any heat is disappears out of these areas.

We insulated daniels room, which has improved matters - but we didn't/coulnd't insulate the kitchen. So now i'd like a wall built separating our kitchen and dining room to try to keep the heat in.

Also, whilst im grumbling, who thought it was a good idea to have the very last radiator in the system as the main living room one?

Reminds me of when I was in Japan. Woke up and the temperature was plus 4 degrees in the room I was sleeping.

crix, build a stud on to the existing wall, CLS is piss cheap timber, by some celotex foam insulation board, then cover in tapered edge plaster board to avoid having to have it all plastered, its a really easy job and will give you a lot more insulation - windows are also the biggest heat loss element to a house if they are old, you can get clear insulating panels to form a second skin too.

this advice has cost you £40000000000000

Thank you. Our windows are decent and newishly done. But there are many of them and we will be losing heat there. I can't really re-insulate the kitchen without ripping the whole thing out which isn't gonna happen. So yeah need to do the stud wall thing between kitchen and dining room.
