Children “not kept safe” at nursery.

Last Updated on : 11th February 2019


Dear NappyValleyNetter,

On Saturday morning my youngest grabbed the mail and ran into the kitchen brandishing an Amazon packet.

“Is it for me, is it for me?” she demanded, whilst simultaneously launching the slim cardboard box onto the kitchen table for Mr NVN to open.

It slid across the table knocking his brand new iPhone onto the kitchen floor.

There was no doubt from the smashy-type noise it made on contact that the screen was now in many many pieces.

And the Amazon delivery?

It only turned out to be the screen protector he’d ordered for his brand new phone.


Here’s what you’ve been talking about this week on NappyValleyNet…

W. needs advice as she’s been in a relationship with her child’s father for over 10 years but he’s only separated, not divorced. Where does she stand legally and financially? (read more) Please remember when replying that this is a real person with a real problem

And N. needs help on transferring ownership of a house which is currently owned by a couple with whom their relationship has soured (read more). I think this is going to be really really tricky.
