September's handy tip:
Although we're hoping for an Indian Summer to follow the real one, it's not too early to think about getting ready for a cold snap in the winter. Use the dry weather to look over the house - make sure all the outside pipes and those in the loft are properly insulated with foam pipe-wrap, and that you have no missing roof tiles or gaps under the eaves where snow could blow in. And don't forget to plan for cleaning your gutters and drain grids once the leaves are off the trees.
