Re: Local Handyman

Lee came to our house a couple of weekends ago. Highly recommend. He put up a load of flat pack furniture for us and then hung lots of pictures on walls. He's just the sort of person I like - meticulous, professional, thoughtful, respectful of your property. Very efficient I must say. Thoroughly nic...

Re: Cleaner/House Keeper Available December

Well she has several cleaning jobs including a family in Clapham. I believe she charges £10-11 across the board. But it depends how long the job is, for shorter jobs I think she asks for travel also. She's with us all day so we do not pay her bus fare. Thank you

Re: Anyone else got a teenage daughter with high functioning autism?

You would be a massive credit to any school or group especially, as you say, the girls because you know how good girls are at covering up and putting a package out there that's not a true reflection of their whole selves in order to fit in. It's an act - for survival. Pretending to be like all the o...

Re: Anyone else got a teenage daughter with high functioning autism?

What a lovely note Jo. I am touched, and wish that I had been brave enough to stick up my hand and ask for help and support a couple of years ago when we were going through very hard times and all on our own. Good on you! Was lovely to meet you last night, bringing your rep from school was definitel...
