Re: Can't keep up with extravagant fortieth parties

Yes totally agree with previous posters. Remember, often when people have lots of money they are time poor. They might even prefer to have done a party at home but don't have the time to organise it, so it is easier to go with a venue, caterers, organisers... Please don't feel like you don't belong,...

Re: So we're loosing Wandsworth's Homebase AND B&Q

I'm not sure if I'm more upset about the closing of B&Q or the casual racism.
Is it still under risk. Nothing has happened yet.

Re: child to walk to school on their own?

Actually my sister's son's primary school in Fulham prefers them to walk on their own as they ar more responsible and aware. It is when they are with a friend that they are more likely to get distracted and do silly things! Obviously depends on the children, but interesting that they have a differen...

Hi, we have a room to rent in Wandsworth, not sure where you are, but we are near Southside.
The room is on market for £525, but if he can commit to a year, I'd be happy to let him have it for £500. See link below:

Re: Footy team

Broomwood seems a nice club, parent run so cheaper than most but very over subscribed, I put my boys down, about when my older son was 7 or 8 (he's now 10) but never got offered a place. I did get offered one for his younger brother this year but he now has a club so didn't accept it. So try but loo...

Re: Fixtures and fittings - seller wants to take it all! (even a tree!)

I know of one seller coming back 2 weeks after the sale to remove the metal house number from the door!

Our sellers were so sweet they left children's toys in the garden because we had a baby (including a sandpit and a paddling pool)

Re: Charity for used bras?

The salvation army in the wandsworth one way system accepts bras - they give them for women and families they are helping. They have also been happy for open packets of nappies and the absorbent disposable bed sheets for children...

Re: Making a Ring! Looking for ring/diamond shops in London and Brighton

Look at lots of places and work out what style you like. Hatton garden is good for research as there are so many jewellers. If you want something a bit less standard/traditional try dinner like Spectrum on south molton street, they have gorgeous art piece jewelry (that's where I got mine). Or if you...

Offered: FREE soil

If you are thinking of doing a gardening project over Easter we have lots of free soil to give awayaway. Ideal for creating raised beds or landscaping - you might want to add some organic matter for growing vegetables, but it is pretty healthy soil full of worms. There is a normal amount of stones f...

Re: Bike hangers in Wandsworth

So Denwand - what would be the difference between having that or a car outside your house. Its about the same size but less polluting. I doubt most residents would get a parking space right outside their house most of the time anyway...

Re: Emanuel School

My husband still moans about how he wasn't allowed to keep up playing football when he went to Emanuel, because he had to be available for rugby games on saturday even if he wasn't on the rugby team! But that was a little while ago, so might be different now :) There is also the story about how his ...

Re: Wix to become part of Belleville

firsttimerSW11 - although I understand what you mean, that the ofsted is not criticising the teaching but the safeguarding issues, you put your point across in a way that makes you seem rather self centred. The role of schools is far more than just education and safeguarding is very important. But i...

Re: Smoking neighbour

I have a very similar situation, so I know you dilemma, but I don't want to complain to my neighbour, I know they have a lot of stress and I don't want them thinking we are annoyed with them. I try to persuade myself that by the time the smoke has floated about 8 foot through the air, although it st...

Re: Kitchen gadget advice sought!

Yes 22 years is lots! I love my magimix - was given it by an aunt for our wedding and although didn't really use it till we had kids, its used almost daily now. She got me the one with 3 different size bowls you nest inside so works for everything.

Re: Kitchen gadget advice sought!

Why do you want to replace your magimix? Is the motor still ok? My mum went to replace her one a few years ago at Peter Jones and the guy recommended she just get new fittings and bowls for the old one as they had such well made motors, new stuff isn't made to last anymore... It's still going strong...
