motorcyclists thefts on Balham High Road

Some scumbags just snatched, literary, snatched my document case, which I had on my arm. I was not even holding onto it in my hand. Thank goodness there was nothing important at all in it.

@KirtinMc - I think I have sent you a message but I can't find it in my Sent box... So hopefully you have got it. We like working with our architect and our builders.

We also had a good team of bui...

Re: Mobile Phone Carrier Nightingale Triangle

We use O2 but will need to be calling people at the front of our house, closer to Balham. We use wifi/fibre optics broadband for skype etc because we found that we just could not get good connection without the fibre optics capacity (when we had a more basic connection). We have been on fibre optics...

We use an architect who is also a project manager (our house was our 3rd project with her). We did go out for te...
