Re: Hotel in Paris

I have several recommendations for Paris on my blog but given your criteria, I would advise Hotel Breguet.  It's near Bastille so lots to do and see, easy walk to Le Marais and has a pool, a good restaurant and nice rooms. You can read my review here https://fromthepoolside.com/maison-breguet-review...

Re: Man on Bus

I agree with SouthLondonDaddy that a change of uniform will likely not stop those people. Better to teach our girls that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable, that they should defend themselves, find a way to deal with it when it happens (ignoring them, reporting them, asking another trusted adult...

Bed linen rental

A friend kindly offers her house to accommodate my family when they come at Christmas while they are themselves away on holiday. I'd like to make it really easy for everyone by renting bed linens.  Has anyone used such a service before and would have recommendations?
Thank you

Re: child to walk to school on their own?

Could you arrange to have a friend join him/her at least some of the way. My daughter started walking to school in Y5 but the school asked that they travelled with a friend.

That being said i have a feeling that the moped attackers are probably not early risers :-)

Temporary accommodation during renovation work- any lead?

Continuing on with my renovation-related questions, we will have to move out for at least 4 months from mid-January.  Anyone knows of a house sitting service that we could look at or does anyone intend to rent their flat/house during that period? We need two bedrooms and at least semi-furnished.  As...

Re: Downstairs toilets vs bigger kitchen

Thank you for your comments.  I may do another post asking someone if they have a tiny loo in the kitchen that we could visit to get an idea! @writerlady, thanks for your opinion too. Reading it, it's very tempting to do the same! We have two bathrooms, one on the first floor and one on the top floo...

Downstairs toilets vs bigger kitchen

Hi, we are currently planning a complete refurbishing of the kitchen and as part of that would like to create more space by removing the toilet that is currently occupying the back wall space. We could either move it to the space opposite the door to the cellar and make it quite small or get rid of ...
