On the condensation, the lining on your roof should be breathable. Cant tell from the pic if that is. Take a closer up pic of it and will see. If it has a brand on it let me know and will look it up.

Have you had new windows installed or anything recently? Sometimes things like that can actually trap more moisture into your roof space as they are tight to keep heat in but then also keep water vapour in.

Usually roof is ventilated on the gable end, eaves or sometimes with ridge tiles etc. If there is enough condensation that it is dripping onto the insulation then it needs looking at or you will find it seeping through to ceiling (albeit over years, so no need to worry right now).

I am in a semi with a gable end and we have added some air bricks on the gable to vent as the membrane on the roof isnt breathable. No issues with condensation at all since this.

Thanks, gunner.

I'll check the.roof lining out a little.closer but I'm pretty sure that it's 'just' some DIY lining, not breathable as such and maybe that's the issue.

I'll get up there over the weekend and check it out thoroughly. FUK delivering as usual; grateful for the advice before the inevitable call to a random builder who'll get me over a barrel.

Joking aside no, but I did bump into a girl I went to school with (and lived in the same town as) working as a stripper on a night out approx. 50 miles from where we both lived. Was with a group of mates who also knew her and she was mortified to get recognised & got absolutely tortured bless her, felt bad tbh but I guess you leave yourself open to the idiots when you let them slip tenners in your knickers

Cheers fudge.

Nigel, my mate started dating a stripper last year. Everyone obviously took the piss a bit but now she’s his girlfriend and not a stripper anymore. There’s hope

Is she a stripper or a lap dancer? Wouldn’t bother me if she just danced but wouldn’t fancy having my bird getting naked and offering naughty 40’s to drunk blokes in the back room of some club.

Agreed. Definitely different categories of stripper, those who do and those who don't. Work it out … if she don't, she's fair game. Go full pretty woman if the puddy is fuego enough.
