Recommending personal trainer

Hi For anyone looking to get fit and/or stronger in the New Year, may I recommend my trainer, Bleu Widley? First of all, he’s genuinely invested in his clients' progress. He actually cares. Over the years, I have used various trainers and it can be a rare and unusual quality! Bleu always has a plan ...

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

Perhaps because the term stay at home mum is a bit outdated. What about the stay at home dads? People take career breaks for all sorts of reasons...

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...

Re: dreading xmas because of my mean sister in law

Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one feeling like this. I think many people dread seeing their in-laws over the Christmas period. Agree with the comments above. Sometimes responding just aggravates the situation. We can’t change them, but we can control our response. Once I accepted I couldn’t chang...

Re: How Wandsworth threatens whole families with eviction

I’m rather dismayed by the person who first responded to this post. Do they mean that people (including “family members” - as they point out) who have a criminal conviction don’t deserve a second chance then? Also their comment bemoaning the mother with the 7 children “who cannot control her childre...

Re: Anything to do?

Young Stars is really good. Over the last year or so I have used the Belleville Wix, Alderbrook and St Luke’s sites for my 4-year old.

The teachers are just lovely and there’s lots of stuff to do: arts and crafts, physical games, etc. You can do a half day too.

Re: New partner is overly strict with his son

Am so sorry to read your post, particularly for your partner’s 8-year old boy. Poor little lad, he doesn’t deserve this. I just cannot imagine berating one of my children in this manner. Very upsetting and heart-breaking. Perhaps your new partner was raised by an authoritarian father and believes th...

Re: Review: Lunch at Upstairs at Trinity

This restaurant review blatantly sounds like an advert: “all the gold medals”, “every mouthful heavenly”, “a brilliant spot for lunch”, “excellent food within easy reach” etc etc.

As opposed to an independent and objective piece of journalism. A bit off-putting.

Re: Tramp in local coffee shop

So much contempt and disdain shown towards the lady who wrote this post. When we did we ever get so belligerent and downright nasty? I am not defending her views and yes, they are shocking. But some people come from very sheltered and parochial backgrounds. Perhaps no one has educated her on homeles...
