Re: Cant decide between CWM and St Georges

Why not have a look at both and see which you think would suit you best? You say you are closest to St. Georges' so naturally that should be your first choice.

Re: Ideas for first time buyers leaving Nappy Valley?

We used to live in CJ and couple of years ago moved to Earlsfield. It's very safe, neighbours are very friendly, high street is getting better and better, and the schools are good. In fact Earlsfield primary just got Outstanding rating. We are very happy living here and I wouldn't want to move.

Re: Husband has no friends - help

This post is so like my husband. When we met he had so many friends. Always out, having people around, picnics, tennis, traveling.... Over the last 10 years many of his friends moved out of London or changed country. Then he started his own business which means no colleagues. And now we have a 2 yea...

Re: Thefts from cars. Clapham Common Westside.

We'had car break in as well in Clapham Common North Sude area. No damage, just some spare change taken.

Re: Burgled! SW11

Hi again. I must say that our garden is easily accessible despite being mid-terrace. It does not border with another garden from the house opposite - there is just a garage and street. We have an alarm installed next week so should feel safer when leaving for holidays etc.

Re: Do you like your kitchen worktop?

JThomas, I am sure you will enjoy the corian smooth feel. The reason I really hate it sometimes is white corian sink as that it where it stains most.
Otherwice paste of 2 above mentioned ingridients covered by cling film and left for 30 min will get rid of any stains without scrubbing.
