Re: Carluccios in Earlsfield closing today

It was never that good. We stopped going ages ago. The Korean place across the street is fab though.

Re: Looking for people with hypothyroidism symptoms or long term fatigue

Could you be perimenopausal and have you had your iron levels checked? And are you taking enough B12? Hypothyroidism, menopause, low B12 and low iron all have similar symptoms.

Re: Northcote Road Summer Fete Sunday 15 July - all the details

Yes I know and I’ve always really enjoyed it. I’m not trying to be negative - just pointing out that a lot of local families will be away. Wimbledon changed their dates last year - it used to be the last week in June and first week in July and now it’s the first two weeks in July so you’re well into...

Re: How do you get your builder to come back and fix their mistakes?

Hi IrenaP, that's a very insightful question. We initially had a good relationship with our builders and even recommended them to our friends (we had some frustrations during the project and there were delays but I thought this was part and parcel of a building project). Problems began once we paid...

Re: Northcote Road Summer Fete Sunday 15 July - all the details

Oh dear. Let’s hope England aren’t in the final otherwise you’ll have a mass exodus! For future reference all the private schools in the area have already broken up so you may be down on numbers as many families go away as soon as the schools break up to make the most of the cheaper prices.

The World Cup final starts at 4pm. Someone's going to have to make a decision on whether to change channels :lol:

We used to have an oval one which was definitely a better shape than a round one - more space to bounce. I think it

Re: Smart meter. Yes or no?

Smart meters are great in that no one comes to read them - until you change suppliers in which case they’re useless! I’m not sure what the downside is though as long as you don’t have to pay for them.

Re: How do you get your builder to come back and fix their mistakes?

At the time you did the work there were rules on installing low energy lights so I’m wondering what sort of lights you have that involve a “bulb”? We had our house renovated in 2012-13 and had to install LEDs which come as a whole unit. I agree that before you do anything else you should get a reput...

Re: Manspreading and Nappy valley houses' hedges

I agree. In fact I wish we had laws to make it compulsory to maintain the outside of your property. There’s a road near me where one side is privately owned houses and they all look immaculate and the other side is houses divided into flats and the landlords don’t seem to feel any obligation to make...

Re: Woman suffers six puncture wounds as she is mauled by fox while sleeping in bed at her London home

Well said sixfootred! Foxes are urban wildlife, not vermin. Why are we so arrogant to think that only we humans have a right to occupy any particular place. What a dreary old world it would be if we didn’t have any other creatures in our cities. I haven’t seen an urban fox for ages now and I always ...

The people who run a floatation tanks business (v salty!) recommend putting Vaseline over cuts and grazes.

Re: Thomas's clapham

They take 80 children each year. I think they do try and even it up between boys and girls and spread throughout the year. November to March sounds a bit odd - it would make more sense to do it in quarters. But based on that it would seem there are about 6 or 7 places in your son’s category for non-...
