No problem, Plaques. I'm going to put polystyrene sheet + reflective foil across the wall at the back behind the pipes and along the concrete floor then probably fill the rest of the cavity with mineral wool.

CH pipes do tend to be warm.....
Did I see that BG are warning of another gas price rise because of the problem with a pipeline from Norway? If so my fixed price deal might end up in profit!

Yes, and Ineos, the chemicals company in Grangemouth that has been so successful is now facing a potentially major problem due to the break.

That's it!
I note this morning that the CH has not fired up. Must be unseasonably warm out there!

In the last week we've had several examples of the nights being warmer than the days (and the days weren't very cold either).

It's all helping the gas bill! I see we are relying on Russian Gas to keep us going through the present problems we are having....

That might not last long after Bojo has made his visit to Moscow and threatened Putin with cyber warfare!

It would appear that the majority of cyber warfare is conducted through 'Twitter'. Pull the plug on Bojo's account and it will be 'Peace and Light' again. I don't think we need another clown getting in on the act. But there again we are approaching pantomime season. Perhaps we should all Tweet "He's behind You".

Pull the plug on Trump's account and it would probably be "Peace on Earth"

What puzzles me is why all the nitty gritty about the Moscow talks is conducted in the open. I the old days these arguments would take place behind closed doors and any announcements would be delayed until there was something positive to report. I know the modern trend is for transparency but there is a time and a place for secrecy and private conversation. They used to call it diplomacy.

I thought Boris deserved a Priti Patel welcome for his performance with his Russian counterpart, who actually looked like a Foreign Minister. He was not amused, and rightly so with the slovenly opening hand shake from Boris with one hand in his pocket. During the talks he was grinning like a Cheshire Cat and acting like the court jester. I don't think he knows the meaning of the word diplomacy. If he is the best we can do it's God help us.
