Re: teenage boy staying over with girlfriend

Agree younger children complicates it. We said OK to stay at partner’s home if invited but said couldn’t have them staying at ours until they were nearer 18, especially as our youngest was nearly 7 years younger. They understood and I’m sure had sex at pur house the moment we went out! And agree abs...

Re: reusable nappies

I can’t recommend a brand as it’s a long time since I used them but I do totally recommend them! After using disposable nappies for my first two children I used a non-disposable service for the third and really wished I’d done the same previously. The nappies at the time were absorbent cotton square...

Re: INVITED GUEST HAS ASKED IF HER DAUGHTERS BOYFRIEND CAN COME TOO

Interesting. Have you asked your daughter if her friend wants to bring her boyfriend? Does she know your daughter’s boyfriend isn’t coming along? Or is the friend’s mother trying to help out the boyfriend’s parents for some reason do you think? Parents seem to behave quite badly in these situations....

Re: How do I get my overweight partner to lose weight?

Agree there is probably an underlying issue. My husband’s waistline also reflected a surfeit of City lunches for the best part of 20 years and he developed high blood pressure. But confronting it head on made him defensive and resort to ‘secret stuffing’. I found it was best to approach it as a heal...

Re: Best all round multivitamin for women?

If you have specific symptoms you should go to your GP for a blood test. Long term conditions such as Vit D deficiency or Pernicious Anaemia need prompt treatment. But agree with previous poster that multivits bit of a racket. Your body can’t store many of them so ‘superdoses’ may do more harm than ...

Re: Is anyone else feeling really fed up with the state of things right now?

Absolutely agree. Schools funding: all children are precious. They are our future. State schools make up over 80% of our educational system. How many children’s lives will be blighted by these cuts? Reporting: we are constantly told more people are ‘in work’ than ever before yet see more and more ho...

Re: Four stabbings and a fatal shooting marks bloody evening across Wandsworth, Clapham and Plumstead

Police numbers cut, fewer specialist armed police, drastic cuts to neighbourhood policing and cuts to youth clubs and youth service funding. What did the government think was going to happen? London and other big cities are bearing the brunt of this pointless and counterproductive austerity.

Re: Picking up my son after his school journey to see his face swollen and blotched.

Schools now unable to administer anything other than very basic medical treatment but should have contacted you. We had issue with our son being bashed on head in rugby. School neither contacted us to collect him or took him to A and E. I would say first step is to ask head of year what their policy...

Re: Review - Tony's Last Tape, Omnibus Theatre, Clapham

Saw this last week and agree it is absolutely excellent. Philip Bretherton is very convincing and the play packs a great range of moods from laugh out loud funny to poignant. Benn was also around for a long time so this play is a fascinating look back over several decades of life and politics. What ...

Re: In-laws voted leave. They've removed my children's freedom of movement and I can't cope with seeing them any longer.

Our MIL voted leave despite living in a poor area of S Wales where employment has been hugely boosted by EU money. She spontaneously explained that she didn’t agree with all these foreigners being allowed into our country and that ‘we should be allowed to have bendy bananas’. Yes, really. We advised...

Re: Protia Design & Build - Espen Jewhurst - insolvent

I found just in time that displaying a Fed of Master Builders logo on your website doesn’t necessarily mean you are a member. I checked out some builders quoting for work at our property on the FMB website and they weren’t listed. When I took them up on this they airily assured me it ‘didn’t matter’...

Re: Balham economist creates Waitrose, Lidl tube map showing division of wealth in London

It doesn’t seem very accurate. There is a Lidl in Twickenham - very much West London! Also, why choose a tube map format rather than actual geographical distribution? The map suggests a vast gulf between Richmond and Whitton whereas they are within walking distance, as rugby fans will know well.
