Re: Sofa recommendations

If you haven’t decided yet, I would recommend E A Wates for sofas, armchairs etc. They have a huge showroom and parking at the back. They are based in the Furzedown area between Tooting Bec and Streatham.

Re: Rum & Raisin Chocolate - Yum or Yuk??? - A Willie Wonker Appeal for Opinions!

Try again but burn the alcohol off first before adding to the raisins. You shouldn't pass out after a few chunks. This has inspired me to make some from a bit of Antiguan rum I still have left over. Rum and raisin is my favourite ice cream flavour but £5.50 for a bar of chocolate wouldn't make me buy.

Re: wanted: ideas for exercise classes

Have you thought about HIIT - high intensity interval training? I've downloaded the 7 minute workout app which I try and do at least 4 times a week.

Re: Recommended Locksmith required

I've used Saxon locks recently when a key broke in a lock. I found they were responsive, did a great job and were reasonable. They are based in Tooting near Amen Corner.

Re: 1st world problem Advice please.

Totally in agreement with Reb. My MIL wanted my husband to give me an engagement ring which she inherited from her aunt. The ring was given to her as an engagement ring by her fiance who went off to war and didn't come back so she never married. I didn't particularly like the ring and when I asked i...

Re: washer dryer that actually dries?

I think a decent washing machine and dryer combi is as rare as a unicorn. In our household when we come back with loads of washing from holidays, we actually take the suitcase to the local laundrette and get a service wash done. They can normally do it in a day and you pick up clean dry washing that...

Re: East End Eton: depressing or encouraging?

Wheresmyschool? wrote:Why can't the government with tax payers money do this?
Because its a truth that in the UK if the electorate have to vote for lower taxes or more public spending than the electorate will vote for lower taxes.

Re: Anyone thinking pre-school/reception at Allfarthing in S

Hello Guy, On a completely unrelated topic; are you sure you wanted to post that much personal information on a public facing website? You have basically published, what your child looks like, the nursery they go to, where you live and other identifiers that anyone with less than decent intentions c...

Re: Help packable pressie suggestions needed!

Do you know when they get back? How about some tickets to a panto or show with a Christmas theme for the whole family that gives them something to look forward to when they get back? You can put the tickets in a card for them which would be very easy to pack.

Re: Current clothing collections for refugee crisis?

Not sure if you are specifically looking for Calais and Syria or if you want to ensure the coats get to someone that needs it but there is this charity collecting coats and a drop off point at Wandsworth Common.
