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
Naturescope
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...

Re: Not happy families at the Bolingbroke on Northcote

It may be a licensing requirement and they would lose their licence if found with teens in there after 8? Agree they should make it clearer though: "by day a family friendly gastropub, by night an adult retreat" or something... If it's not a licensing requirement then it's very silly to object to on...

Looking to rent in balham for 7 months (3 beds)

We are looking for a place to rent while we do work on our house - for around 7-8 months starting this autumn. Ideally Nightingale or Boundaries triangles and 3+ beds plus garden (we are a family of 4, no pets). Just thought I'd post on the off chance someone has or knows of a place that would fit t...

Re: Newton Prep or Hornsby House?

Three obvious differences 1) Newton House is selective, Hornsby is not. You may find this means they attract slightly different types of parent ;) In theory you would probably find a slightly broader range of ability and personality type at a non selective school (but in practice, it all depends on ...

Re: Thomas's clapham

My understanding is they try to have around half boys and half girls, and a spread of birthdays across the year. It's a four form entry (I think?) so 80 places. So about 40 for boys. Of those, about 20 for boys with autumn or winter birthdays . They're saying they already have 7 boys with autumn or ...

Re: Kitchen companies - views on Blakes, Eclectic, Sola and others?

Thanks for the further replies! Those suggesting Higham, I did visit them but they were pretty inflexible about changing the design of the cabinets, they can do it but don't want to as they are so busy. Lovely quality but only would work if you want the style exactly as they already do it whereas I'...

Re: Kitchen companies - views on Blakes, Eclectic, Sola and others?

Thanks both!

Manureva, I'll have a look but the German shaker is usually not my thing - but will check it out.

Writerlady, thank you - I have also had a friend use them who was happy so that's another tick!
