Re: Can anyone paint a bathroom suite and tiles?

I have used Vitor recommended above for other jobs - he's good but relatively expensive. For  painting/decorating, I can highly recommend Andrius - he did lots of work for me and my friends. Painting a bathroom suite / tiles is a decorating job, it just means using a different type of paint. 07900 8...

Re: Moving to UK - Richmond?

Hi Nikky, I lived in Richmond "before kids" and absolutely loved it - the amazing park, great vibe, the river, not too bad a commute (depending on where you are going). As it's such a beautiful place, it's quite expensive; also, where you live relative to the station (depending on your or your partn...

Re: École de Wix vs Belleville Webb's

I am a parent of a daughter in Year 1 at Belleville, and my son is about to start nursery there in September. I agree with the previous poster that Belleville is a great school, and definitely has more clubs / activities / academic rigour (in English) than Wix at the moment.  However, if your object...

Re: Your experience of Bumblee Bee nursery or Noah’s Ark Cobham Close

I just posted this on the other post asking about Bumblebee vs. Mouse House, but reposting just in case: It's now been 3 years since my daughter has gone to Noah's Ark, so the info might be a bit out of date (back then, they only let them in at 2.5). However, two of my good friends have their kids t...

Re: Butterfly Preschool and Mouse House

It's now been 3 years since my daughter has gone to Noah's Ark, so the info might be a bit out of date (back then, they only let them in at 2.5). However, two of my good friends have their kids there now - one is about to finish after two years there, and the other one started in January as a 2 year...

Re: Butterfly Preschool and Mouse House

Hello, my son went to Mouse Hole (and is now at Mouse House). Can't comment on Butterfly but I know people who have kids there and are very happy. My son really enjoyed Mouse Hole and settled quickly (starting at 2). I found the teachers great and I really liked that the kids went to the common all ...

Re: Cost of Extension -£115k?

Hi Starfish, That does sound a bit excessive, £80K sounds about right.  I can recommend my builders, they just completely re-did my extension, kitchen and downstairs after builders from hell did everything so badly we had to redo it (6 years ago), they also renovated our loft, did my cloakroom, and ...

Re: when will it be ok to book a summer holiday?

I think everyone is in the same place mentally - really want to have summer holidays in the sun to look forward to and / or take a break after a looong stay at home, but equally, don't want to take the risk / don't know if it will be allowed. If it's any consolation, we have had 4 holidays /mini bre...

Revive's Joe Purcell is a planning specialist. He used to work at the council. You can't find better. 

I second that - we used Joe and he was fantastic, used to work in Wandsworth Planning!
