Re: Recommendation for house/pet sitter, Balham please!

I've got a very reliable friend who does occasional house and animal sitting (cats, dogs, guinea pigs and horses to date!). I'll PM you with her contact details. She can provide you with references from previous clients.

Re: Stacking single beds

I think these are now taken - due to be collected on Sunday. If it doesn't happen I'll let you know.

Re: Is Northcote Road Battersea or Clapham?

If it helps, the confusion was kind of intentional. When they built the station, Battersea was a rather downmarket area so instead of naming it 'Battersea Junction' they called it 'Clapham' which was a much smarter area, to reflect their aspirations for the new railway hub!

Re: Tooth Brush training tips???

My toddler doesn't always do a brilliant job and quite often objects or just want to eat the toothpaste. When I talked to my dentist he wasn't overly concerned about this. Tips my dentist gave are: - focus most on the back teeth, the ones with cusps, as they're the ones most in need of a clean rathe...

Re: Battersea Estate Agent needed - who to use/who to avoid?

I sold a two bed flat in one of the mansion blocks near the park almost three years ago now. It's a while ago but based in my experience I would definitely avoid KFH. Amongst other things, they put a lot of pressure on me to accept a low offer - or had inflated the asking price which I specifically ...

Stacking single beds

Perfect for a guest room or child's room wanting a sleepover bed. These stacking beds are standard 3 foot singles. They can be used as two singles or one double. The finish is an white/off-white crackle glaze. We bought this for our guest room which is now being turned into a nursery. The beds are o...

Re: Farrow & Ball paint - is it worth it??

We avoided F&B for wear and tear reasons on advice from friends - but do agree it looks good in their houses. We have a combination of Dulux (sometimes mistaken for F&B though I do correct people!) and Little Greene. Both have been great, reflecting the light of the room and pretty robust. We've got...

NEW white blackout roller blind with cord safety device

This is a white blackout roller blind, measuring 85cm wide, and 160cm long. The blind was made to size for us (though never used!), but could be cut down if you wanted it narrower. The item is in its original packaging - never opened - so includes all fittings and instructions required. The blind (b...

Re: Reclaimed victorian features - Fireplace, Hallway tiles.

We sold a Victorian fire surround on ebay with no trouble, so that's definitely an option. It's probably even worth giving Nappyvalley a try as given that I can see three houses under renovation from where I'm sitting right now (at least one of which is restoring features that were previously ripped...

Wonderful childminder in Balham from May

My second maternity leave is rapidly approaching, which means my son will be leaving the care of his wonderful childminder from April/May. So she'll have availability for one child from around that time. Our son's been going to Josephine since he was 6 months old (part time at first, and now full ti...

Re: Going back to work

I've gone back to work full time and will be off again this year when no.2 comes along in the summer. I definitely made mistakes that I wouldn't want others to repeat! By the way, we don't have enough money to throw at things and my commute is 1 hour - these are facts that I can't change, but doesn'...
