OK here, had a very nice young man around today, he was doing a survey to find eligible people to have loft insulations done under a government scheme, part of that insulating homes. The landlord wasn't available at the time to ask him about it but he came back a bit later to say he'd spoken to his wife and was sure he'd be agreeable to having it done.
At present my loft has very thick fibreglass insulation but apparently this would be changed to something better and not as damaging as there at the moment. It will be done next month if the landlord gives his permission, I'm sure he will.
Well the man who came to do the survey booked it for the 28th of next month preliminary, depending on the landlord's verdict.
The landlord phoned me this morning about it and was rather sceptical about it, I said well I've got his number so I can just phone him and tell him not to bother.
He said to leave it with him for a while while he checks things out as he has been told that what is there now is more than adequate and nobody goes in the loft, I don't have anything stored up there. I think he wanted to find out what would actually be put in place of the fibreglass as he didn't want perfectly good insulation taking out and inferior stuff put back.
I'll just wait and see.
I agree Bill, the stuff in now is very thick, in fact you can't see the joists because it more or less covers them.If your loft is properly insulated with fiberglass, short of spray foam, I doubt you'd get much, if any advantage...even if Cellulose
I'm not too bad Angie, although of course I can't generate as much heat into the place being alone so it means the heating gets a bit more use.That's fair enough; you want to ensure that what's in there is doing the job properly. I remember how thick the fibreglass used to be, and after looking it up online, it's still one of the ways they still insulate lofts. As long as your warm, that's the main thing, so leave the young man caller and landlord to sort it out amongst themselves.
What's on the menu this week?

I've already had Cornbeef Hash and Cumberland Sausage and think I'll have Fishermans Pie tonight, I haven't decided what pudding to have yet.
Why don't you have a look online at their catalogue and it will give you an idea just what the range of meals they do. They have 3 sizes of main meals, the size I have then quite a lot are done in a mini size and also a hearty size for bigger appetites. There are menus in a free from range and also softer foods.
There is something for everyone.
