Re: The Good Earth, Bellevue Road to re-open 9th June

They have an online ordering system now for deliveries, but I found it didn't have all the dishes they normally have on the menu. However, if you call them to order you can order dishes that are missing from their online ordering system!

Re: Any recommendations for a new bathroom?

Complete bathroom remodel of 3 bathrooms about 2-3 years ago, and happy with the works and results. Going separate places, I think ended up saving quite a bit of money. The mark-up on bathroom tiles and fixtures can be really high. Builder: We used Riga Interiors. Vitaliy is the owner. Small outfit,...

Re: Nest camera - or "cheap" other protective measures

Security cameras are one way. There are also window and door contact sensors, that will trigger alarms and alerts when those are opened. If getting a WiFi "smart" device, make sure you have at least 3 out of 4 bars of WiFi at that location. Or increase your WiFi at home with mesh WiFi network. Camer...

Re: Hi-Spec Kitchen Finishes - what is worth the price?

We used KDC kitchens - really happy with the quality and install, three years on. I think our kitchen came up to about £20-£23k all in (appliances, worktop, units, lighting). We sourced our quart worktop separately from MKW Surface and appliances from a combination of KDC and online appliance suppli...

Re: Any recommediations for double glazing windows? Other than Ayrton and PP Glass?


Ive only used them for replacing glass in existing frames, but they also do brand new frames. Used them twice over the last few years, happy both times with service, quality, and price.

Not sure if they do half pvc half wood though.

Re: What weed or plant is this?

Thanks for the recommendation of PictureThis! Tried it and it immediately got the right weed : purple deadnettle Guessing it must be in gardens around me in the Nightingale Triangle, as it isn't a weed that was present in my lawn before. Looks like some Roundup or Resolva spray will get rid of it ea...

Re: Plants & Gardening Supplies - Where to find online?

Have tried Crocus, Marshalls, and Webbs Direct. Webbs Direct wer the quickest, within a week. Marshalls took two weeks, and Crocus 4 weeks. All the baby plants I ordered were healthy and seems to have taken up well in the garden. Marshalls was the only one doing compost delivery out of the three , s...

Re: Husband not helping with kids despite working from home

Definitely communicate this to him. If you feel you can't, then there's deeper issues in your marriage. But think of it the other way. Now that he's working from home, are you helping him out with his work? Then why should you expect him to help out with yours? The two of you had clearly agreed one ...

What weed or plant is this?

Saw these growing at the edge of my grass lawn. Haven't seen these before, and a quick Google search doesn't yield anything familiar in terms of weeds.

Anyone know what they are?

Re: Waitrose Deliveries

How are you getting a delivery slot?

Plants & Gardening Supplies - Where to find online?

I normally get my garden supplies from Neal's Nurseries or Squires Garden Centre, but both are now closed, and Neal's doesn't do telephone/online orders. Looking to buy some spring/summer plants for my flowerbeds, grass seeds, compost, etc. Nothing exotic, just usual garden supplies you'll find in a...

Re: Builder for kitchen installation and bathroom works

I've used Riga Interiors (owner is Vitaliy) for my last two whole home renovation projects. One was a 2 bedroom flat, the other a 5 bedroom house. Everything - from bathrooms to flooring to decorating to some minor structural works.

They have a website, or ping me for his mobile.

Re: First rate boiler engineer needed: any recommendations?

I've been using Mark Newlove for my boiler needs (servicing, and also replacing a combi boiler), and he might be who you need. Good, knowledgeable, clean and tidy as well.

Tell him Boon referred you, as he's now so busy he tries not to take jobs apart from referrals.
