    We asked for deductions when we bought, after the survey flagged the roof. Seller said no. We bought anyway. Depends on the market, but totally normal to ask.

    SE6 is a bit far from you, but we have a great little appliances shop that either stocks that kind of stuff or can order it in. It's a branch of Euronics I think. Also have you tried just asking in nearest Travis Perkins or similar.

    She seems to be prepared to come back and "do whatever it takes" for the sake of the health of her next child. In care is better than dead from malnutrition and treatable disease.
    As bonkers as it might seem I can understand the "no regrets" line. She's currently in a refugee camp, 4 years after running away from a relatively comfortable home to go to a warzone, experiencing death and violence up close. I can well imagine too many regrets right now = instant disintegration. Without even rationalising it, it's likely a survival mechanism.

    She's still only 19. I feel sorry for her. 3 friends from school. They could've just run off for the day and got inappropriate piercings or something.

    I don't think she's banned? But she might not be helped to come home.
    A lot of teenagers want a cause, glory and/or infamy. Thankfully most of them don't act on it (or get distracted by food/shoes/sex/music/booze until dull adulthood.)

    To disagree with ^ I think where you've marked is exactly the right place to put a heater, to mix with cold air from the window and reduce condensation around there.
    The obvious product to me would be a small electric towel rail?
    Also, I found simply wiping down condensation after a shower really helps.
