Re: Nutty's Children's Parties

We had one of Danny’s team for our daughter’s party a couple of years ago - Jack I think? He was brilliant, I’ve been meaning to recommend them but forgot sorry! Lovely imaginative party format, he managed to enthrall a room of 5 year olds by getting them involved in the “explorer story” and various...

Re: Child behaviour issues? - Paediatrician needed

Diane Smyth is also recommended in this area, she may charge less than Daphne Keen I don’t know. First though I would suggest getting his ears checked again as glue ear can come and go with the seasons, maybe get it checked again mid winter after a few colds and you may find it’s back, or if not the...

Re: Planning permission to install air conditioning in Wandsworth: who has experience? Recommended installers?

Hmm. The Ormeley road one has the a/c unit right up on the roof ridge, on anti vibration mounts. That’s a lot better from a noise perspective than having it on the rear facade or sitting on an extension roof which was what I’d pictured. Although still adds to the overall noise and heat pollution loc...

Re: Second hand baby bits? Is it the done thing?

Of course it’s ok! Mattress and car seat should be new but otherwise second hand is great for all the reasons mentioned above. Some second hand baby items have barely been used because that baby didn’t take to it or it was only used on holiday or at grandparents’ house. Where to look - well I would ...

Re: Planning permission to install air conditioning in Wandsworth: who has experience? Recommended installers?

If you do a search on the Wandsworth planning portal for “air conditioning” you’ll find some relevant applications. I believe the council will require you to specify the exact unit you will be using although I don’t know what spec are deemed acceptable (I imagine everyone chooses the quietest possib...

Re: Paediatric Neurologist Recommendations?

I can also recommend Maria Kinali. Very thorough and won’t just jump to the obvious conclusion, will check to make sure there isn’t something a bit less obvious going on instead/as well.
Good luck

Re: Disastrous change to Wandsworth Planning

So are they saying (or intending to say) these extensions can’t be done at all, or only that they will now require planning permission rather than coming under permitted development? If the change is simply that these extensions will now need planning permission it isn’t such a big deal surely. But ...

Re: Utility room surface - advice needed!

We’re getting wood for ours because it works with an undermount sink and I don’t see it getting too wet.

Is there an option for the friend to tag along for just a couple of days?

Re: Left out of a girls holiday to Ibiza

I had a similar experience a few years back. Very hurtful and disappointing at the time but ultimately it made me recognise I’d always been peripheral to that particular group, it wasn’t the first time I’d been left out of things. Fair enough there are always some people closer than others. Since th...

Re: Hall for kids party? Recommendations please

available on Sundays:

Chatham Hall
Balham Library Hall

St Luke’s Shepherd Hall (afternoons only I think)

All nice venues, Chatham Hall might feel a little large for 20 kids

Re: how to best reconfigure ground floor

Sorry you lost me at losing the banister and replacing it with a wall. That’s very sad to me and would certainly put me off as a buyer. I also prefer to walk directly into the kitchen rather than via a living room as otherwise that living room ends up feeling like a corridor and dumping ground. Idea...

Looking for a bin store cupboard for 80 litre “old style” bins

Hello Like most people in Wandsworth we have old style 80 litre dustbins as the council doesn’t collect from wheelie bins. I’m looking to buy a store cupboard for them but all the off the peg ones are for wheelie bins it seems. Has anyone found an off the peg store cupboard for these 80 litre bins? ...

Re: Help for a mum with teenager skin

Have you always had acne or has it only recently appeared? As the replies above show, different things work for different people. You need someone to help work out the out root cause of your acne and try things that are relevant for that. For example if it's due to a hormonal imbalance (PCOS or simi...
