Temp accommodation needed Jan 5-Feb 15

Hello, We are having some renovations done (again!) and we need temporary accommodation from Jan 5th to Feb 15th. We are a family of 4 (kids aged 3 and 6) and will consider all options, including a 1-bedroom flat or some sort of shared accommodation, or any house that's under sale, or even a shorter...

Re: Recommendation for will writer

We used a will writing service by the co-op, everything was over the phone and electronic. They also store your will securely for life. It was very competitively priced.

Re: Botox/fillers recommendations?

I also go to Dr Eldymarys and highly rate her. You can just call SW11 Medical directly and make an appointment. She works late every other Tuesday if an evening appointment is desired. I had botox and fillers with her (lip and a bit of cheek and nasal lines), and I am totally after a natural look an...

UPDATE: Chivalry Road Playground - response from Wandsworth and meeting next Tuesday 6th August 3 pm

Dear all, As someone who lives very close to Chivarly Road playground, and with kids aged 2 and 5, we use the playground almost daily and were delighted with the improvement. However, like many of the others who use the playground that I have been chatting to since the renovations, we feel the playg...

"Wasteland" at the end of Danvers avenue (opposite the St. John's Hill exit from Clapham Junction)?

Hi all, I don't know if you ever walk to Clapham Junction from Plough Road side, and if you do, if you go between the buildings on Danvers Avenue. If you do, you would pass through a fenced off "building site". This has been there for a few years, and is a big wasteland at the moment, with 2 meter t...

Aeroplane noise between the commons?

Hi, I know it's a first world problem and all that, is it just me, or is the aeroplane noise unbearable currently between the commons? It seems to go on all day and night (or at least from early hours of morning). Any thoughts on why it's suddenly so bad? Has it always been so bad? Is the solution t...

Re: Botox

I can totally appreciate that the first time you have it done, you are very nervous and go to a great specialist. When you have it done regularly, and 3 areas, as those of us in our mid 40s night need to do, you become a bit more price sensitive. Of course some people are better than others in their...

Re: Giant new children's playground at Kew Gardens

This is great news, however, just wanted to warn anyone heading there that there has been a lot of heated discussion about it on SW18 mums on FB - apparently you need to get a timed entry ticket, and stories of people who went there only to find out that by 11 am, all the tickets were gone, or that ...

Re: Looking for a good joiner to do a front door

These guys (I had a recommendation on this site for them) did an absolutely fab job for me - replaced both the door and door frame and did a glass door for less than the London Door Company quoted for the door itself, and with Banham locks instead of cheaper ones. I get a lot of compliments on my do...

Re: Nanny holiday sick pay practice

We and many families we know give nannies 25 days in addition to bank holidays as these are the days that we go away as a family on holidays. Sick pay is tricky. I have a friend who gave a nanny 12 sick days at full pay, so promptly the nanny took off sick days for every cold. SSP feels very paltry ...

Re: Questions to ask a potential builder

Sorry to be one of the naysayers, with our first project we did it by the book, had a contract, checked references etc... and it was a disaster - builder from hell we ultimately had to fire, sued and won but never got a penny as the company folded. I was even smarter the second time and asked for re...
