Second Cavendish and Country. They moved us last week, my mum 3 weeks ago and are coming today to collect the boxes. Polite, fast efficient and friendly. Very reasonable price we thought, nothing too much trouble. Their movers are carefully chosen and work well as a team and Clare in the office has ...

He usually does schools but is up for parties (if charlton aren't playing at home!). He runs the technology shop at Ivydale Primary bu...

Re: Do I legally need to change my name?

There is no legal requirement to change your name but sometimes you don't want to carry your marriage certificate just to prove you're wed. I'm in the same position - maiden name if it's just to do with me (work, volunteering etc), married name if it's family. I also have bank accounts in both names...

Re: Local Chinese Medicine Practioner?

Yes! I went to Dr Huang for three years for acupuncture and herbal prescription tea for my disabling chronic eczema. I also have IBS and had carpal tunnel.

Re: Schools! Are we too late??

Don't freak out! Our state education system is very good and I'm a big fan having both taught in it and have my children in a state school. Almost all of them are good and you don't have to apply until the school year in which Tey will turn 4. Over 93% of UK schoolchildren are in state schools - alt...

Bacon sarnies or pancakes to the full Canuck breakfast, yum. Plus t...
