Drink driving with child in car: help. Wife does nothing as husband works himself to death. Clairvoyant needed. Teacher’s end of term gift cost?

Last Updated on : 11th July 2016

Dear NappyValleyNetter,

Every once in a while we have a post which represents a huge cry for help.

This week one user, who has been caught drink driving with her child in the car, has made such a post.

I hope we can help her and please don’t forget, this is a very real person with a very real problem, so please do bear this in mind when replying.

Here is the rest of what you’ve been talking about on NappyValleyNet:

weekly1A statement has just been published on the proposed Crossrail route. Is Balham, Tooting or even Wimbledon looking more likely? Or perhaps, almost as importantly, might your local Waitrose be under threat? (click here).

There have been a spate of scooters vandalised between the commons, if you are an Easy Rider please do take extra care when locking up your steed! (click here).

From one type of spinning wheels to another…NWM is looking for a DJ to work the “wheels of steel” for her daughters seventh birthday. Dom Makin aka The DogFather is amazing and Dan Johns has also put his (trendy) hat into the ring! (click here)

ChelseaGirl is looking for a particular clairvoyant/psychic. I will resist all cheap jokes along the lines of “surely she’s aware you’re looking for her” and simply ask that if you do know Linda Dawkins then please tell ChelseaGirl! Oh and ask her to pick six numbers for me next Saturday night! (click here).

JT82 would love your feedback on girls names. Do you like Tabitha, Henrietta, Beatrice or Waynetta she asks? Ok, I made one of those up but I bet you can’t tell which one! (click here)
