Re: Caterers for drinks party

My sister has just set up a private catering company. She doesn't have a website yet, but if you email her at: tavie_squire@hotmail.co.uk she will be able to help. She is Cordon Bleu trained, and has done my canapes for my son's christening which were amazing (several mums on this site attended and ...

Re: What to give a childminder for Christmas?

Hmmm maybe I should have done vouchers? We gave our fabulous childminder a lovely Oliver Bonas warm winter scarf, but I put the gift receipt in so she could change it if she wanted to. I put thought into it-I know she takes the children out a lot in the cold weather, and wanted her to have something...

Re: Second baby NCT

It completely depends on luck with both NCT and Babycarecompany IMO! I had my second after a 3.5 yr gap. Did both the above. NCT-met 7 AMAZING girls who all (2 years on!) regularly meet up and are all in touch. Much better than my first NCT group! The course was not useful for me really (was having ...

Re: NVN SOA The Biscuit Tree

Totally agreed! Another NVN SOA from me for The Biscuit Tree! Rhiannon recently made some AMAZING Thomas the Tank engine biscuits for my little boy's birthday party- they were so detailed and beautiful, and presented so nicely. They also tasted lovely- both my children absolutely adored them! Everyo...

Re: Can anyone recommend someone to make canapés etc

My sister has just completed her cordon bleu training, and is setting up her own catering business. She's just done all the canapés for my little boy's christening, and although I am biased (!) they were amazing. PM me if you'd like her number.

Re: What do you do when the nanny is sick??

That's interesting to know there's an emergency number-that would come in hugely useful... Is it somewhere on their website-I can only see the office number?

Thanks.

Re: What do you do when the nanny is sick??

I have just gone back to work full time, and am absolutely dreading this! We don't have a nanny, but kids are at school/childminder/nursery... As much as we'd love to take time off when the kids are ill, we can't. We've been members of Likeminders for a couple of years, and they're really good. The ...

Re: Is it worth doing NCT to meet other future mums?

I would definitely recommend NCT, although it's not everyone's thing, I did find it useful. Although my group wasn't particularly successful, I have friends who swear by theirs. However, had match up mums been around when I had my two, I would have joined that, because I like the fact it matches you...

Re: St Barts villas?

The only thing is I guess it's not super child friendly in terms of decor/flooring etc but I'm sure it would be ok. You might find something more family friendly but those are the only ones I know. It's in a great position though!

Re: St Barts villas?

How lovely!

We (sadly not myself with husband and kids but with my parents!) have stayed here:

http://www.emeraudeplage.com/

It is AMAZING. Right on the beach, gorgeous villas etc. Not cheap (!) but lovely. It doesn't have a pool but the sea is gorgeous.

Have an amazing time. Wish I could go back!

Re: What's the best way family friendly holiday?

I'd recommend Martinhal in Portugal. It's not cheap but any means, but not 10s of thousands! More like 4-5k including everything for a week (flights, food, kids club, meals out etc). Kids club is from babies, they have the creche club which is under 2s, a club for 2-4 yr olds, and then one for 5 yrs...

Re: Honeywell Drop off and Pick up times

Hi, For Reception, I think the official drop off time is 9.05. The children all line up in the playground, and the teachers come down to collect the children. Everyone tends to arrive between 9.00 and 9.10, and the teachers generally take their class line in at 9.10. For Reception, pick up is stagge...

Re: Recent experience of Kid's Unlimited Wandsworth SW18?

Thank you for the feedback.

Unfortunately my visit today was hugely disappointing, and I wouldn't feel happy leaving my child there. This is obviously a personal choice, but I personally didn't feel comfortable with the nursery at all.

Northcote House? (Northcote Gardens)

I went to see KU Wandsworth, and was hugely disappointed. I came away feeling very unsure about sending my little boy to nursery at all... I then visited Baby Room on Webbs Rd. I really, really liked the manager, and the feel of it, but felt like the space was just too small for my very physical, ad...
