Looking at the weather forecast for the next week or so, it is going to get quite cold, perhaps the start of winter. While the weather is still reasonable and dry at the moment, I took the opportunity to disconnect and stow the hose and reel from the back garden and turn of the water supply from the garage connection. Maybe a bit overkill, but a few winters back, this water connection froze solid and forced the pipework apart. Luckily I spotted it before the thaw came on and reconnected the pipe.
We have had new double glazing both door and window in the rear garage and it does not get so cold there now. also lagged all the cold water pipework just to keep things a bit warmer.
