Re: Filthy Clapham Common / come on Lambeth

Today I went for a walk and sadly had to tell my child to get away from a tree next to the gravel pitch as there was a used condom and wrapper next to it. So now, the woods aren’t enough? They have to leave them in the open all over the place. I saw more three in total just around the gravel pitch. ...

Re: Filthy Clapham Common / come on Lambeth

Just seen the responses to the post, I’m glad I’m not the only one. When I moaned on here I also emailed Lambeth, friends of Clapham Common and even Wandsworth to moan about the mismanagement of the common by Lambeth. I also called Lambeth in the summer about people using it as a camping site and ma...

Re: Fines for Wandsworth residents

Just to clarify, it is necessary to take the bin our where you live? Is it flats ? Just checking as there seems to be confusing in my road too. Years ago they used to ask residents to put the recycling bags out on bin day but not the rubbish bags. Then they told us not to put any bags out. However, ...

Chance to object Lambeth using common for events

For those who object Lambeth using a large proportion of the common land for their own events generating money for Lambeth only and taking away green space for all. They also are boasting the regeneration of the grass which is no doubt due to the damage to the land from previous events. Wandsworth r...

Re: Fines for Wandsworth residents

If correct, the council is abusing their powers. To spy on residents and use heavy handed tactics for money generating fines is a very ugly tactic indeed.

Re: Save the greens at Clapham South - your help is needed.

Were you sarcastic maybe with your suggestion previous poster? I just want the space to me a green space for all with a purpose. If not ...

Re: Husband has taken the kids away without consent after an argument

I just can’t believe how calm you are about this. Nearly three weeks in and you turn to NVN. I’m glad you got some legal contacts and help. Taken the kids where exactly though?! Who did you even know they are safe ? How old ? This is totally unacceptable and a form of abuse to do such a stressful th...

Re: Would you hire a nanny that doesn't speak English? Also Age?

In short, no. It’s just adds an additional problem... miscommunications potentially at any nursery school club drop off , won’t be able to communicate with other parents when needed... I doubt you suddenly pick up A new language at 54. Can’t rely on google translate for whole range of scenarios and ...

Given that this new strain is much more contagious it really does require people to behave like they did during first outbreak when paranoid and more conscious of ...

Cleaners and tier 4

I’ve just checked and cleaners are allowed to work in tier 4. I wonder however given the news of how much more contagious the latest strain is wether I should cancel the last clean before Christmas at least. Also, should they wear face masks? She’ll probably hate me if I ask her .. What do others do...

Re: How long is normal to wait after a baby to become intimate

It’s extremely intense to have a baby emotionally and physically. It’s totally normal not to feel like you have any more of you to give. If you are breastfeeding it’s especially physical so the thought of more needs needed of you can be too much. There is absolutely nothing wrong and beru normal to ...

Re: How long is normal to wait after a baby to become intimate

The answer is that beyond the recommended minimal time for healing it’s whatever feels right for YOU and nobody else. What’s right for you is what’s normal for you. Frankly your needy husband should not be putting you under pressure. Even if he doesn’t do it consciously he’s obviously affected you e...

Re: Our cleaner, who is rarely here.

You can start by not paying her full wage when she doesn’t come. Maybe half ? I did this during the first lock down. If it’s for any other random reason then don’t pay her. If it’s not working for you however, change cleaner. Of course people will have things come up, but if it’s a persistent issue ...
