Re: Four year old's birthday party: how many is too many children!!

From experience, I have a 6 year old & a 2 year old, I would invite them all, some won't even bother to reply, some will say yes only to then cancel or not turn up & some won't even bother to let you know that they aren't coming.

Re: Thomas's School - too late?

Re: Getting rid of baby vomit from Sisal?

Thank you, a friend suggested painting the white stain with cold tea so I'm trying that. Anything to avoid replacing a £1000 rug which is only 6 months old.

Getting rid of baby vomit from Sisal?

Any tips on how to remove baby vomit (formula) from a Crucial Trading Sisal Floor covering?
My sister's baby was sick all over our rug & we cannot get the white mark out. It's a made to measure rug which covers almost the entire room & the mark cannot be hidden by furniture.

Re: What do you do with your children's school artwork, photos and school momentos

This is really timely as I have boxes & boxes of it in the loft which I need to go through & sort out, a friend of mine takes photos of things rather than actually keeping them.

Re: Cape Verde - anyone been, is it really trashy?

We looked for the very same thing but the flight is 6 hours & you can't swim in the sea due to the strong currents. We're going to the Canaries instead.
