I feel like I had 20 minutes of sleep last night.

Normal draft excluder strips round the edges, then on the back you want some loft insulation. Ours came with a foil lined pad of the stuff glued on.

Hmmm... that's got to be worth a try. Opened my hatch (['Oooo' - Ghost of Kenneth Williams]) to see what happens.

heat rises in convection, but there is also radiation to consider, and that cares not for gravity, and will radiate heat in all directions. (most UK grills are heating from above after all), so you may find limited success with the loft hatch, if the air in the loft is much hotter than the air in the house.

This is the content I come here for.

I’ve stuck one of those doggie cooling pads on the hatch and thrown a thick blanket over the top. See if that works a bit better than nowt.

Yeah, we opened our loft hatch yesterday and immediately it started pouring much hotter air into the house. We closed that shit back up again quick.

Home office in loft was toastie yesterday, but thankfully not unbearable. I’ve gone in work today and the air con is delicious. It’s actually cloudy here too in Leyland.

I'd offer some orange juice, but a big lunk broke the dispenser.

Weirdly I slept like a rock... And forgot to set an alarm; luckily Helen woke me up at the right time... But without my usual 1-2 hours of hitting snooze, I'm pretty sure I was actually asleep for a couple of hours - extreme sensation of being dissociated from my body and surroundings

Knackered today, awful nights sleep… too hot (too noisy with window open) Mrs Z wakes up saying there’s something crawling on her, assumed it was a dream but no, had to remove a zebra spider from the bed. Ended up kipping on sofa downstairs at 2.30? as it was much cooler.

Same. Helen had enough first and went the sofa route. I wrapped my pillow in towels to sop up my fluids.

All day my various weather apps have been taunting me with the promise of a thunderstorm but it keeps on getting push backed every time I check.

At least it's not been as bad today. Might even venture further than the little Tesco.

I'm reasonably close to you and its been the same for me but the heavens have opened and its raining quite heavily here now - so probably on its way to you in a few minutes :-)

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
The weather App said - raining all yesterday afternoon then vanished and a few hours with 'light drizzle' which actually was just a few spots
It then said 'heavy rain and thunderstorms for this afternoon from about 12
Then it changed that to no rain
Then to light rain
And it currently says light drizzle for the next 3 hours but this is quite heavy rain at the moment :-)

We are back in cold, wet Aus now, having spent the last 4 weeks back in England enjoying outside time and playing by the pool at Lady T's dad's house.

This was quite the unexpected turnabout. I have not been this brown in a long time.

That will be to follow on from the Thames Water leaflets they have been sending out saying dont have a bath
and at the same time keep discharging sewage into lakes and rivers :

https://www.theguardian.com/environment ... ent-agency

While making record profits

Quote:
Thames Water, which dumps sewage in local rivers, made an operating profit of £488 million last year. The water companies making billions in profit were responsible for nearly 400,000 sewage dumping events in 2020 alone, according to the Environment Agency


Anyway its hot its going to get a little hotter and not stop being hot for a while :-(
