Re: Hairdresser - amazing at blonde!

Scott at Smiths on Battersea Rise. I’m ridiculously fussy with my highlights (hate looking yellow and also abhor “stripes” so have about a million tiny foils!) and wouldn’t trust anyone else with it. Most people don’t know it’s not natural...

Beware the "Balham Guardian" data mining cold callers!

I just received a landline phone call asking me if I had received and enjoyed my free copy of my local newspaper "The Balham Guardian". Subsequent conversation went something like this: Me: urm no Them: but you're at 33 Sanselm Gardens right? Me: Noooooo Them: oh ok, can you just help me out with yo...

Re: Integrated Fridge/Freezer repair

No-one replied on this one but I thought I would add the outcome in order to prevent others suffering my experience. Without a local recommendation I went to Knowhow (Currys) who couldn't come out for a week and, despite my having made VERY clear it was an integrated fridge freezer, took one look at...

Integrated Fridge/Freezer repair

Its integrated and I cant get to the back of it even to pull the plug out so switched it off at the circuit board, emptied it and had to forget ab...

Annabel/ NVN team, please can you check if it is real or not? It would be awful if NVN were directing people to a fake fundraising page but also sad if it is real and people are put off donating? Thank you!

Driving Lessons

Hello, after having been scared of driving for 2 decades following a bit of a prang during student driving lessons, I'm finally biting the bullet and looking for a driving instructor. I'm keen for someone patient based on the above but also someone who speaks very clearly as I am partially deaf and ...

Re: Need solicitor to assist with freehold purchase

Thanks Annabel, a lot of these links and recommendations relate to pure conveyancing which is a bit of a different beast to leasehold enfranchisement. It would be good to know if anyone has gone through this process with someone reliable (rather than just sold/bought property) Thanks All for any sug...

Re: Small lottery win: advice wanted

Well done you! Personally if anyone was rude enough to ask about the financing I would tell the truth but in such a jokey way they wouldnt know if I was serious or not, i.e. "Ha! We won the lottery!" *roll eyes* Change subject swiftly.... "Another cup of tea?"

Re: Husband has visited escort- advice please

How utterly awful for you. Although I may get flayed alive for this (and there is a never an excuse for infidelity), I think its worth finding out the circumstances. If it was on a stag do or night out after a lot of beers and the whole group went along that is somewhat different-albeit still not ri...
