Re: To move or not to move?

Hmm. If I were in your situation I would move out of London completely. You have lots of friends in the area, but when your kids are just starting school is the ideal time to make new friends so you're in a great position. Yes this area is lovely but I think being in a small flat with no outside spa...

Re: Reviews on Thomas's Clapham

Both my children went all the way through Thomas’s. I think it’s a fantastic school and any negative comments you see on here are often from people whose kids didn’t go there. The current head has done a great job and the new head Nathan Boller was formerly a teacher there and is a great guy. It has...

Re: Urgent Petition

There is a special place in hell for people who drive noisy motorbikes and since all motorbikes seem to be noisy (why is that?) I imagine it will be getting quite full. Have you tried talking to him? Is there not a law against noisy bikes?

Re: Driving lessons automatic car

I’m not sure you need lessons to drive an automatic. They’re much easier to drive than manuals. Just remember to put your foot on the brake pedal, put car in drive mode, release the brake and off you go. The car switches gear for you so you just need to use the accelerator, brake and steering wheel.

Re: Next door vegan neighbours objecting to us barbecuing

Wow. A lot of selfish people on here including you I’m afraid. You say you don’t want to cook the meat and fish inside your home as you don’t like the smell but you seem perfectly happy for that smell to waft over to your neighbours’ garden and offend them instead. I’m totally with your neighbours. ...

Re: What's missing from Northcote/CJ?

I’d really like a better choice of restaurants. The ones we have at the moment seem to be some sort of pizza/Italian or meat/steak/burgers. Speaking as a vegetarian who doesn’t like Italian food (because the only veggie thing they have on the menu is pasta or risotto zzzzzzz) I find we eat out less ...

Re: What's going on on Wandsworth Common opposite Brinkleys? A funfair or travellers parking up?

It’s a funfair. They have it every year. Seems to be mainly rides for little kids. Always seems pretty empty.

Re: The London Streetspace programme - Balham to Colliers Wood

Maybe that’s because people making the decisions are MAMILs! The number of cyclists is still tiny compared to other road users and while I’m all for reducing pollution I think this just makes it worse. I will never cycle on London’s main roads as I think it’s far too dangerous and I object to the fa...

Re: Users and residents of Burntwood Lane - Much needed changes to speed restrictions and road layout.

Surely the solution to people exceeding the speed limit is to have more working speed cameras. Trinity Road could also use them to prevent motorcyclists treating it like Brands Hatch. Chicanes and speed bumps end up hurting everyone whereas speed cameras only target those breaking the limit. But I a...

Re: Worried abut letting friends down on a holiday

I don’t really understand his thinking. If you paid a deposit and for the flights then you will lose that anyway. As far as the other families are concerned, either they cancel too in which case I think it would be reasonable for them to ask you to cough up for they money they’ve lost, or else they ...

Re: Sleep trainer for an 8 year old

I had problems getting to sleep when I was a child. Looking back I never felt tired when I went to bed - it’s very hard to fall asleep if you’re not tired. I was not allowed to read in bed so I just lay there thinking! Why don’t you try moving his bedtime to an hour later? Stop him looking at screen...
