Re: Screen time and young children

Hi, I think you’re absolutely right to hold out, it seems ridiculous that other 6 year olds have their own devices. I say, don’t cave in to the peer pressure, they will thank you when they’re older. I often get the complaint from my two that they’re the only ones in their class without an iPad or ph...

Re: Do fee paying schools offer help if you get into financial difficulty

Hi, I’m in a very similar position. Have some savings, definitely can’t pay for it out of income and don’t have enough savings to pay for it all so really in two minds about whether to do it or not. I can’t speak from experience as my 2 are still at (state) primary but I did visit a private school r...

Re: returf my small garden

Hi, I’m also looking for a gardener who could come and help tidy up, re-seed the lawn and give planting advice. Someone with a passion for gardening would be a big plus! Thank you in advance for any recommendations.

Made.com issue flatpack nightmare

Hi, I’ve just bought some furniture from made.com. They say they don’t provide an assembly service for this and the instructions are unintelligible. Has anyone got any genius ideas of a local person who might be able to help? This is beyond anything IKEA would do, we have assembled a lot of flatpack...

Re: Northern line morning woes / Conservatives campaign / Massive rant!!!
