Re: Park incident

I’m a bit worried about your mental health if you found that incident “traumatic”! The woman was probably concerned for your child and momentarily forgot that we are supposed to be keeping our distance (easily done when you are thinking of something else). She touched your child’s face and in doing ...

Re: Help incredibly noisy kids behind me and to the side of me

Really Ron that’s a horrible thing to suggest. Keeping young kids confined all day is just cruel and I’m afraid the OP just comes across as a grumpy old killjoy. If you don’t like the sound of children playing then you really should have moved to the country years ago. If you can’t afford to move no...

Re: Need my B12 injection but GP closed for Covid 19

Have you tried your pharmacist? If that doesn’t work can you get a prescription from your GP and get the dose yourself? It’s really not difficult to self-inject. You don’t need a nurse to do it. In the first instance I would speak to your local pharmacy.

Re: Fox nuisance in garden

There’s an organisation called Urban Fox Defenders who will help you with any foxes that are causing a nuisance. They love foxes so won’t hurt them.

They don’t seem to have a website but are on Facebook - is you google them their Facebook page will turn up.

There’s a card shop in Southside. They might have them.

Re: where to buy loo roll

The whole thing is ridiculous. The U.K. is an exporter of loo roll so we’re not going to run out. People are just going crazy, no doubt fuelled by the pictures of empty loo roll shelves in the press. I really wish the media would be more responsible and stop reporting this stuff. It’s become a self-...

Re: Oliver House School, Alderbrook or Broomwood?

I think your chances of getting into Broomwood are virtually nil. They’ll have already done their offers by now and will still have a long waiting list. Worth calling the registrar to see but I wouldn’t put your eggs in that particular basket if I were you! You could always start at a state school a...

Re: Different mums and different budgets for class nights outs.

Not sure I need to reiterate that going to chez bruce is a ludicrous idea. I mean seriously - what planet are they on? Also CB only has tables for six unless you book the whole of the upstairs room. From my experience of being a rep there will always be someone who complains about something. Just ig...

Re: MIL stayed for 2 months over Christmas and is back in 5 months

We travel to fairly exotic places a lot and I can pretty much guarantee that wherever we go there will be a coach load of loud, elderly Australians hogging the queue at the breakfast buffet. Our friends down under certainly like to travel! So I have every sympathy that you have to put up with one of...

Re: Unleashed dog in Wandsworth Park (near the playground) charged at our young children & 5-year old now terrified

When my son was little he was also very scared of dogs owing to three large Irish setters that used to be regularly on Wandsworth Common. The dogs used to go running up to my son when he was in a pushchair - again with the owner just saying something along the lines of “he’s just being friendly - he...

Re: New York hotel recommendations

The Trump on Columbus Circle is worth looking at if you can stomach staying there given who owns it. As a lot of people clearly can’t (!) they have really good deals so you could get a one bed suite (with sofa bed in the lounge) for way cheaper than at any similar hotels. The suites have a little ga...

Re: Water Softner Recommendation?

It keeps breaking down. It's attached to a pump so often it's the pump rather than the water softener. Pump repairers are rarer than hen's teeth and don't seem keen on doing the job. I paid £330 to have a couple of guys tell me the pump was broken and I needed a new one. Took them all of ten minutes...
