Re: artificial vs real grass

Lily I’ve been trying to post a picture of my garden with the artificial grass but I can’t - message me if you want to see it . It is full of bees and butterflies - grass doesn’t attract them flowers do . As for snail - no thanks but I still get them - too many . My artificial grass cost 50-% more t...

Re: artificial vs real grass

I had real grass in my old garden which was large - I love gardening so I didn’t mind the upkeep which is more than mowing twice a week . To keep a lawn looking good you need to feed it , weed it , aerate it once a year and scour it with a rake to keep the dead grass out - it’s hard work . If this i...

Re: Divorce / family Lawyer

It is really hard to answer this because frankly the type of lawyer you hire will depend on the specifics . I needed a very good , senior lawyer as I was the breadwinner and my husband was trying to seek half my assets whilst he had stolen from me ( unknown) for 27 years . He employed a real pit bul...

Re: Husband doesn't want us to tell the children that he has lost his job

Frankly I think your husband has the call on this especially in the beginning . It may not take long for him to find a job and therefore nothing needs to be said . If it goes on for months and months then perhaps review the situation . Just be glad he told you . My husband never could which led to v...

Re: What’s the property market like in SW11 now?

I hear everything you said but there is still no rationale to this market . I sold a double fronted house on Crockerton Rd in 2018 - it was in decent condition , had all the features - just needed new kitchen and updating If that and could be done over time . The price reflected that . A few months ...

Re: Any Broomwood Hall parents out there? I need your help.

My daughter went to Broomwood Hall a long time ago . We are not religious And never had her baptised . We had absolutely no problem nor did she ever feel like an outsider . I don’t think it has changed since she attended

Re: Police descend on Wandsworth Common last (Saturday) night

I was told they were checking if people were socially distancing which seems strange because for most of the days it’s a seething pit but the day they finally show up it looked fairly empty .

Re: Hotel in Paris

You didn’t say if you prefer right or left bank . I stay at the Duc St Simon on the left bank right off the Boulevard St Germain . The neighbourhood is safe and beautiful and close to all things touristy without being so . The rooms are small but very nicely decorated in a traditional Pierre Frey ty...

Re: Finton House

I live on Wandle Rd so I stress you are not allowed to park on the road for drop off and pick up . The residents are extremely tired of the Parens ignoring the rule making life for us difficult and increasing pollution while they sit in the car with their motors running. It is enforced and the headm...

Re: Furloughed partner seems to be hiding his true feelings

Firstly he is probably being strong for you . So don’t act worried about money because he may sense that . But I would speak to him and ask him how he feels . It’s a hard call as to whether you say you over heard . Are you close to his sister ? If you are maybe you can ask her advice . This is a sca...
