Really hope people read this thread and do just that honeygranola. It often feels like we’re the ones finding our feet in the playground :)

Re: Stay at Home Mum

Hi It’s not so obvious now that the kids are at secondary school but when they were at primary we had one class where there were more full time working parents and therefore more nannies, and one with more SAHMs and part-time working parents. I was lucky to be working 3 days a week so had time to go...

Re: Friend has had hairdresser to her house. Is mobile hairdressing allowed?

I think quite a bit of hairdressing has been going on behind closed doors but people don’t want to say it and get their hairdresser into trouble. Mine told me she’d be happy to come to me when I was ready and that was in April... I have resisted so far. The guidelines have been pants so can’t blame ...

Re: Helicopter on Wandsworth Common

If it’s the one that was above our house for about half an hour I don’t think it was an ambulance - it was blue - so loud - possibly police or news?

Re: Other half embarrassing in drink

So sorry - the last thing anyone needs at the moment is more stress. What has he been like in lockdown? Is he drinking excessively at home or could it be that he needs the drink when he’s in company as he’s not as confident as he likes to portray? Clearly if he is drinking like that at home it is mo...

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. 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. 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.

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 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.
