Re: Husband invited his dad on our family holiday without asking

I would think that you should probably embrace. Possibly use to your advantage, a couple of nights or even a days babysitting?  My only advice would be to make sure that your husband knows that is still your holiday too and that you don't expect him to disappear off to entertain his father.  A good ...

Re: New vet coming to Northcote Road

I think it is the end of Aug. Lots of interest at the Northcote Fete on Sunday but looked like still lots of work needed to be done inside. Looking forward to having another Vet in the area.

Re: Northcote Road Festival line-up and number of stalls revealed! Sunday 14 July

Is there a list of stall anywhere? I was hoping that the espadrille people might be attending again? Can't see a list when I click through to the link? Could anyone advise? Thanks?

Re: dishonest about bursary application

I think that I would have to say something. It is fraud and denying someone who has genuine need of a place. I don't necessarily think that the son will lose his place, I am sure that the school would want to protect him from his parents actions. With regards to your friendship, I am not sure that I...

Can't keep up with extravagant fortieth parties

I am probably getting things out of perspective but I'm becoming seriously intimidated by the expensive birthday parties that we are being invited to. My children go to a local private school and I knew everyone would be comfortably well off but I hadn't realised how well off until this last academi...

Re: Is my husband being led astray?

I think that I would be a little concerned bit only because something similar happened to a cousin and her partner about 18 months ago and they nearly split up over it. He was obviously nearing his mid life and loved the party party scene as a welcome break from his home life obviously using his fri...

Why was Wandsworh Common roped off by police yesterday evening?

Does anyone know what happened yesterday on Wandsworth Common - Bolingbroke Grove side? It was all roped of with police tape and there looked to be forensics there? It wasn't there at 4pm but it was I  about 7pm?

Re: Marriage ‘coach’

Ferndale in Balham are OK. I've heard people rave about them and others less positive. The main problem I think in these sort of situations (and this is what happened to my father) is that he just didn't think the counsellors were particularly smart or worthy of his attention and that made it very d...

Re: Friend wants to bring another family friend on our holiday

Thanks everyone for your replies. I think the couple of nights idea might be the best option. I'm not good at speaking my mind. The bedroom thing was addressed by my friend when she asked the question. Although there isn't room for her on paper there is room if the kids share and although I think th...

I have a regular week away in Devon booked in a couple of months time with a friend and our respective families. However yesterday she emailed to ask if it would be ok if an old family friend, who will  be visiting from the States, tags along too. I don't know this friend, and don't want to be mean ...
