Re: Advice on how to transfer out of independent school into state

Sorry to hear you are having a tough time. My best friend has been going through a very similar situation and having to consider similar options for her children, although not in London.

Re: Photographer for 40th Birthday Party?

Disney Land Paris trip

We are thinking of taking the kids to Disney Land Paris for a few days. The kids are finally tall enough to go on all the rides! Has anyone been and which of the hotels would you recommend or avoid?
