Re: 11YO's birthday party. Looking to have a tea party catered at home.

I’ve heard lovely things about Betty Blythe, which is usually a vintage tea room in Brook Green. During normal times, they offer traditional children's afternoon tea parties with vintage accessories, table linen, finger sandwiches, sweet treats, etc. My friend held a birthday party there for her dau...

They studied the catchment areas for Honeywell and Belleville and corresponding houses to rent nearby. They found a house and got their kids in one of the schools a...

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Your kids will benefit in multiple ways as will you and your partner. I cherish so many hap...

Re: Residents urged to seek medical attention despite quarantine

Thank you for highlighting this important issue. The fact that people with mental and physical health problems are suffering in silence because they don’t want to be a burden on the NHS is dispiriting. The NHS is open and there to care for those who need treatment and support. Of course it’s underst...

Many other brands sell these such as Bonds Baby, MORI, Jojo Maman Bebe and Mini Boden.

Re: NHS alert issued for children

This is a contradictory article. Some children with this nasty condition have tested positive for coronavirus, others not. This does not point conclusively to its association with coronavirus. It is so rare they don't even have definitive number of cases. Yet this piece and other articles note “a sh...

Re: Husband not helping with kids despite working from home

The issue is that people are having to work even harder than before because of Covid. This pandemic has created an extremely challenging business environment. I don’t know anyone who is going out for family exercise during the day. If anything people are trying to over deliver on their jobs. Everyon...

The Little Prince - The Omnibus Theatre

Highly recommend it. A very sweet adaptation of the novella.

For anyone who’s in London over Christmas, I encourage you to see it. My children were enchanted. Great to support a local theatre too.

Re: Student work or Stay at Home Mum Ad hoc

Re: Lunch suggestion hijacked by friend

Perhaps she meant well but doesn’t realise that not everyone wants to spend a fortune. I understand your reaction though. I would gently call her and say thank you for taking the initiative. However, a few people are on a budget especially in the lead up to Christmas. Let her know which [cheaper] re...
