Re: Clapham Common playground - a disgrace

Thank you smh*3 Chorister, Do you not like children? Does it enrage you so much that the expectation of a working playground for our children puts you in a “fit of irritation”??? There is NO way that there could not have been funds in the last 12 years that I’ve known of the playground. It’s misuse ...

Clapham Common playground - a disgrace

2BB6D666-B326-4038-AFE9-2778E540E9E0.jpeg Was there not a petition a while back regarding the main playground on Clapham Common? Does anyone know if it got anywhere? The state of the playground isn’t an absolute disgrace. It needs to be completely revamped and redone. Last week there were loads of ...

Re: Granny obsessed with granddaughter!

Tell her exactly how you feel. If you can’t manage it, prepare something you can refer back to or even give her a note or text her. Let it out and let her reflect and reply. It’s not OK to make you feel guilty about your choices or parenting. It’s also not OK to turn up with OTT gifts constantly. SE...

Re: Knife arches will be in place at schools over next two weeks after spate of violent crime

Not enough to have short term measures. We need police to be present and have the right to stop and search extended in any area where violence a problem. I’m so fed up I would prefer to see the army on the streets to clean up this ****. Go into the estates, get the knives off the kids. Tackle the dr...

Re: Home schooling

Home schooling is a big responsibility and you need to be informed about what’s expected if you already are doing it. There are forums and groups you should be able to find online. You should read the curriculum and what’s expected for each stage in KS1. Then you have the freedom to do it in a more ...

Re: Should curtains be this expensive?

Does it have to be made to measure?
If you look around you can get lucky and find a near perfect match.
Or try to reduce costs by doing half maybe.
I thought I had to do made to measure for my loft space and ended up finding something that fits so perfectly it looks like it was MTM.

Re: Brilliant idea to reduce waste and lower cost of giving gifts at childrens’ birthdays - Fiver parties – anyone tried

You can buy blank cards and envelopes, kids can wire and decorate them but much nicer than using a regular A4. I never buy individual cards anymore for parties, we get a massive box with a selection online at the fraction of the price and the cards are lovely. For parties, I never give any tat, only...

Re: In-laws voted leave. They've removed my children's freedom of movement and I can't cope with seeing them any longer.

Hold the horses guyD73! Step back for a second. Some perspective is needed. it’s very clear from your longs posts that you are a passionate and also a highly strung person and this clouding your judgement. So, you discuss your children’s freedom of movement which , may I remind you, is still a hypot...

Re: Thomas's vs. Broomwood

Visit and make up your own opinion is probably the best advice. Pros and cons are relative and subjective either way.

Re: Afterschool nanny - cost per hour?

That’s not bad, do you get a replacement if your nanny is ill given that it’s via an agency?

Afterschool nanny - cost per hour?


how much does it cost roughly per hour for an afterschool nanny?
Do you pay from the pick up time onwards?
Do people find this solution works or is it a stress as you depend on one person not being ill compared to a nursery pick up for example.

Re: Unauthorised Absence from School

Chorister, What a silly comment...seriously The state’s decision to place school above family is a bad one IMO. As long as a child is a a good student and a good attendance in general i don’t think the OTT strict rules are necessary. Funeral is the only allowed leave and wedding if you are lucky . O...
