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

Sounds like she’s lonely and probably a bit bored - so many older people would benefit from getting out more at home but they are often reluctant to try something new. But that’s no reason to outstay her welcome, which she clearly is. You wouldn’t even want your best friend hanging out with you ever...

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

Are you the only rep? There should be at least two. Try and find a nice grounded mum to help you, otherwise you’ll be trying to fight the clique on your own :shock:

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

Agree with all of the above. CB is a ridiculous idea. The Merchant on Battersea Rise has a raised area you can book at the back. They do nice sharing plates that you can order on the night if you want to, or not. People need to be able to wander about, especially in reception when you don’t know eac...

Re: Mother and daughter martial arts

I can highly recommend Jon Bailie’s hapkido classes. My son attended for seven years and it really helped his coordination and core strength. http://www.semokwan-hapkido.co.uk/ Sorry didn’t read post properly - not sure if you’d be able to do this together but he does run adult classes and possibly ...

Re: Recommendation needed: Fertility Clinic in London AND specialist

This was 14 years ago now, so I’m sure people will reply with more recent experiences, but after being treated like we were on a conveyor belt at the Lister we went to this wonderful clinic near London Bridge. https://www.londonwomensclinic.com/ It’s smaller but more personal - they listen to your n...

Re: Family photo shoot

Emily Travis is v good.

She makes the shoot really fun even for those who aren’t natural models, and comes to your house or will meet you out and about. I think she prefers Wandsworth common, Clapham Common or battersea park but I know she’s pretty flexible.

Email is emilytravis.space

Re: Rottweiler Wimbledon Common Incident - Appeal for witnesses

The met police at good at coming back if you log a report on their site. They may not actually do anything but hopefully they’ll get back to you with some advice and record his details for the future. I doubt this is a lone incident if your boys did nothing to provoke the dog. Poor kids :(

Re: Examples of crimes in our local shopping areas

So sorry to hear this Teenmum. Some year 8 boys were mugged on St John’s Hill on Friday afternoon. It went quieter for a bit since the high number of attacks in Oct but seems to be on the increase again. I worry about my kids coming home every day. I thought sticking to roads like Northcote would ma...

Re: Rollerskating...

Hi. We went to a roller skating party at Westcroft Leisure Centre in Carshalton a few years ago. It doesn’t list roller skating on their website but another website https://www.rocknrollerdisco.com references that venue.
I would give either of those a call.

Re: How big is the academic gap between Honeywell and Newton Prep?

Very well said livegreen. It’s tricky for them to make friends so consistency is hugely important. Make a decision and stick to it. Some years are better than others for all kids so best not to make rash decisions based on one teacher / one bad experience.

Re: How big is the academic gap between Honeywell and Newton Prep?

Honeywell is a happy school no doubt. However, one of my children fitted in slightly better there than the other one. My son wasn’t into football, preferred the company of girls and is generally a bit of a nerd - he is much happier at his Indy secondary school now, where there seem to be more kids l...

Re: dreading xmas because of my mean sister in law

Sounds like typical bullying to me, which probably means that HDM is right and your SIL has some serious issues. Is she your husband’s sister or wife of brother? Sounds like she is the sister and the other SIL is married to her other brother but just checking. Obvs if it is that way your husband wil...

Re: Is it worth buying Miele?

Forgot that! Doors are very annoying - have WM on left too and transferring stuff into the drier is not straightforward.

Re: Is it worth buying Miele?

We have a Miele washing machine. I like the fact you don’t have to put washing liquid in every time, it’s all built in (and you can adjust the amount it puts in according to how soft your water is). Various programmes are easy to store and use, and it is quiet while it’s running. Also you can do eve...
