    been a good bird week, to add to the nuthatch i have just seen the peregrine back circling the crystal palace transmitter (not seen it for a while) and last night i heard a owl when walking back from the station.

    Terry Nutkins would be pleased.

    there is a chap in Bromley who does them, i know this because we are potentially buying a flat of the same vintage and design, engineers condemn them and fit wet heating as they aren’t qualified for warm air, lots of people like them and they are quite efficient plus you can circulate air in summer and even fit a cold air unit to them.

    if purchase goes through we’ll be fitting a combi and rads because they dont do hot water and the flats have an ancient immersion buit into the wall in the bathroom which is not ideal.

    agree about the rads though but who wants to be wearing a hat indoors..

    Amazing that Johnson has told teachers to ditch the masks and go back to face to face teaching when the only cohort seeing an increase in cases is school kids...

    had a small dyson was fine until i burnt the motor out by putting a washed filter in it that wasn’t properly dried, bought a small VAX and it’s been great, really easy to strip down and clean, i used it when a kitchen/building work was being done and it was full of grey sludge from the mdf/filler dust but a proper clean and new filters all round it was back to normal.

    wouldn’t buy a dyson again but thats due to the tosspot at the helm.

    There are flats that have been on for months, you have to want to buy one as a lot of people see a tower block and run away thinking it’s a council estate but it’s TMH territory (theres one listed at the moment) and they are architecturally significant to be in books etc but not everyone’s cup of tea.
    they went up with a big increases in 2017-2019 but has since stabilised and demand is level with supply so not an offers over +20% situation.

    will see what happens...
    anything to avoid having to move to catford.

    The office has hardly anyone there (walked past a couple of times a day) and they never answer the phone, it just rings through to head office i’m guessing covid has a part to play in that.
    I don’t think it’s a surplus of buyers issue but a staffing one.
    I would be pissed if i was a seller and a potential buyer rather than a tyre kicker couldn’t get a viewing, it’s not a 100 people open house queuing down the street situation.

    going to stick a note through when back on Sunday.
