Re: Husband thinks I'm an idiot

My heart goes out to you; you must feel so betrayed. And as you say, at a time when you are vulnerable as you have such a young baby. I think for a start you need more information, to be able to make any decision on this. Which means confronting your husband about it - find a quiet time and try to j...

Re: Curtain and Blind Maker

I use Curtains2go and Blinds2go online. They will send you samples of material, you measure yourself and they are very good quality, at a lot less expense than a shop (although you do then have to put them up yourself).

Re: Devastated by husband's announcement

My heart goes out to you too. I don't necessarily think there is someone else; there would most likely be other signs, such as him changing habits, buying new clothes, going to the gym more, if it had gone any distance. I must say, my first thought was that he might be having a 'mid-life crisis'; a ...

Female dogs on heat - please don't walk them on the Common!

With the recent rise in dog ownership, I've encountered an increasing number of people who seem to think it's ok to walk their dog in season through the middle of Wandsworth Common at busy times of the day. Although of course it won't bother the majority of dogs, there are plenty of male dogs who ar...

Re: Mummy loosing hair at 40! Help

Poor you. People above have mentioned nutrition, including low iron levels. My hair loss, also in my forties, was caused by anaemia (low iron in the blood, because of heavy periods) - taking a good iron supplement and eating more eggs and red meat sorted it out very quickly and it's been fine subseq...

Re: Broomwood Hall - Garrad's Road Prep Closure

I'm so sorry, LP73 and the other parents you mention, that you've been treated so badly. That is shocking, particularly as Broomwood Hall took your deposit and let you give up other school places when they must have been planning this! I do hope that you're able to find a satisfactory solution for y...

Re: Keep finding massive spiders in the bedroom!

I agree that they're false wolf spiders - they apparently originate from Europe so are used to milder climates, hence wanting to come indoors (poor you!). They are rare in the UK, except in London. I regularly see them in our garden each year (we're near the Common too), spinning massive webs. There...

Re: Rats - HELP

We had a similar persistent hole, so got some fine mesh chickenwire and tacked it over, digging it in down below ground level, then put stones in front to completely block it. Nothing has come through that since. Good luck.

Re: Recommendations for Orthodontist / any feedback on Battersea Rise Orthodontist Practice

Sam at Battersea Rise Orthodontist is just amazing. My older boy now has the most perfect smile with no extractions (both me and my husband had to have 4 teeth out as kids). My younger one had 'double decker' teeth, one twisted 45 degrees and again is halfway through now to lovely straight teeth, no...

Re: What musical instrument to learn?

As a mum who still plays the violin and viola and has two boys playing the piano, violin and drums between them, I would recommend that you start your boys on the recorder. Why? I assume that they can't yet read music. It is not difficult to learn but if they are having to learn that at the same tim...

Re: Orthodontist for children

Dr Sam Moghanchi at Battersea Orthodontics, 104 Battersea Rise, is absolutely brilliant. I have trusted him with both my boys' teeth and he tells you all the options, straight, and has achieved miracles.

Re: Broomwood or Thomas's Clapham

My two boys have been at Thomas's Clapham all the way through (younger one now in yr 6) and we are very happy with the school. Lovely atmosphere, great teachers and inspiration, lots of parental involvement if you choose to take it up. Both good schools; I think the main differences are in the first...

Re: Advice for a Friend. Recent first time father being prevented access to his baby.

I used to work as a family law solicitor and dealt with a lot of these cases. If your friend were to see a solicitor (choose one who is a member of 'Resolution', ie a specialist and in favour of a conciliatory approach), then the first thing the solicitor would do would be to write to the mother, ex...

Re: Anyone had a CVS?

My sympathies; I can understand you're feeling really worried. I've had 4 over the years, each with no ill effects. The procedure takes less than a minute and is uncomfortable rather than painful. My tips would also be not to look at the needle in any circumstances - explain your anxiety to the doct...

Re: Dog boarding

We use a great company called PetNanny. They have local petsitters who look after your dog in their own home (not such a shock if your dog is a bit nervous and you get individual feedback as to how it is). It's a bit cheaper than the kennels I looked into. It may be a bit short-notice for them to fi...
