Received the COVID jab yesterday and had the worst night, I couldn’t stop shivering despite extra blankets, and not a wink of sleep. Mrs RobL of course had no symptoms whatsoever.

Do you think you might have had a symptomless infection some while ago? A friend told me months ago that he had suffered loss of taste & smell - now recognised as one of the symptoms. After he had his Astrazeneca injection a couple of weeks ago he suffered as you have described - while his wife was unaffected.

From clinical trials (it's on Gov.uk):
Pfizer- Injection-site pain; fatigue; chills; pyrexia (high temperature/fever) were 'very common' side effects (more than 1 in 10 get one or more).
Astra-Zenecca - Injection site tenderness, injection site pain, injection site warmth, injection site erythema, injection site pruritus, injection site swelling, injection site bruising, fatigue, malaise, pyrexia (high temperature/fever), chills were 'very common' side effects (more than 1 in 10 got one or more).

You're not unusual, RobL. In fact, you seem to be very common .

Old Taffy, if I had had an infection I can guarantee there would have been symptoms! I happened to check my blood pressure that night and it was through the roof! All I have now is a slightly sore arm so all good.

Good to hear you're feeling better Rob, does the second jab have any side effects?

Probably. I saw my GP today and he said a lot of people had reported side effects.

Does anyone else have a double glazed window that howls like a banshee when the wind blows full on? It's in our bedroom, not much fun at 3am, particularly when you were reading a Terry Pratchett book last night that features a banshee which screams "OOOeeeOOOeeeOOOeee".

Can it be stopped (without using an exorcist)?

Our dining room window did this and I checked all the rubber seals on the openers and couldn't stop it. Finally spotted that the mastic between the top of the frame and brickwork was not firmly adhered. Dug it out and resealed with new mastic and no more howling.

Yup - bedroom window but only when it's REALLY blowing a gale (which is usually up or down the hill anyway and not at the house).
Typically a seals issue. Had it worse in our old house but we were selling up anyway so didn't address.

That was a quick response! Thanks. I'd checked the internal seals and couldn't see a problem, also the external seals looked OK through the glass, hence asking the question. Can't check the mastic until the wind and temperature are suitable for getting the ladder out.

But thanks to the mastic suggestion, I can now see that the cause might be a gap (couple of mm) between two tiles that are part of the external window ledge. Should be mortar in the gap but most of it has gone (or perhaps was never there...). Only one way to find out, and that involves a ladder and a tube of goo... then waiting for a strong easterly.

It's a mastic problem. Been there, sealed it.

If you don't wish to use mastic or silicone, Fischer make a product called Express Cement available in Sand or Grey, its basically mortar in a 310ml tube, use a normal caulking gun as you would with a tube of silicane.

Available from Wickes or Toolstation

I thought Pratchett's banshee popped a note under the door because it was too shy to go OOeeOww?
