    I’m internally insulating 2 exterior walls. I need to move the radiator inwards but this this joist is in the way. What’s the best solution here? I’m thinking running the tails inside the insulation and coming out of the wall at 90 degrees.

    I picked up a pair of Site trousers from Screwfix for £8 in their Black Friday sale. Don’t know if it’s still on but full price is less than £20 I think. They have slot in knee pads which I find 100 times more comfortable and not practical than the velcro strap type.

    Ah thanks for asking, I keep meaning to come back to this thread!
    Yeah I managed to find someone to teach me and I had my 4th lesson this week. Some drums came up on freecycle, when I went to collect them we got chatting and the guy I picked them up off offered to teach me. He's not qualified/doesn't have grades etc but it's going well so far. He's got me practicing rudiments and we're going through the Trinity College Initial Drum Kit Grade 2 book. I've learned the first song, Act One Beginners which is a horrible jaunty little show tune type thing. I'm now learning the 2nd song which is a much nicer funky song.

    The kit I have has pieces missing so is a bit wobbly and the hi hat sounds truly horrible, but I'm really enjoying the process. One thing I'm struggling with a little is being self conscious (picked the wrong instrument then hey!) and feeling aware that neighbours can hear etc. In my mind listening to someone trying to learn an instrument can be pretty torturous, so that's something I need to work on. I keep playing over in my mind if I'd be better with an e-kit but I really prefer the idea of acoustic.
    But overall it's fun and I'm pleased with how it's going so far!

    Yea I thought that as well but duty and VAT is included in the price (albeit itemised separately when you go through checkout). I've pulled the trigger now so we'll see how it goes...
