Re: wife embarrassing in drink

My heart goes out to you. Dealing with addiction can be a lonely, isolating place, particularly in a marriage. The excess drinking is a symptom of something. Whatever it is, it needs to be dealt with - whether it is deep-seated insecurities, childhood trauma, depression, an incredibly demanding job,...

Re: Early pregnancy scans

Hi, The Fetal Medical Centre on Harley Street is excellent. They are extremely thorough. Professor Nicolaides, who heads it up, is a pioneer in this field. Also, it is non-profit and everything they make gets invested back into research.

Re: Do I ignore my husband's affairs to have the life I want?

Your post really struck me and saddened me greatly. You are not worthless. I bet you are a caring mum, a great friend, a loving wife and many other wonderful things. Regarding the perceived domestic perfection displayed at the school gates, don't fall it. People put on a facade and hide behind masks...

Re: Filthy Clapham Common / come on Lambeth

Thank you for raising this issue. I’ve also noticed the general filth around the Common. The little wooden area is revolting. I went there with the kids over the summer and it was exactly how you described it. Discarded Vaseline jars, dirty baby wipes, you name it. I don’t know what the solution is....

Re: Help deciding primary school

Re: Childminder in Stockwell/Clapham/Brixton?

I really recommend a lovely childminder called Fedra in the Nine Elms / Vauxhall area. Both my children have attended her setting over the last three years or so. The space is just wonderful. There’s even a lovely front and back garden, which is a rare find in London. There’s also a sandpit and the ...

Re: Views on Woodentops Nursery Clapham

Have you tried the nursery at Parkgate House school? You can do half days.

Starts at 2.5 years old. Very nurturing and based on the Montessori approach.

It’s term-time only so can be tricky if you are a working parent. But wonderful nevertheless.

Re: Desperately trying to stop my 7 year old from sucking her thumb/biting her nails!!

I was once a chronic, persistent nail biter. My mum introduced all sorts of remedies and deterrents over the years. Much to her chagrin, nothing abated it. I remember horrible, blazing rows.
