Re: State versus private - which provides best education?

This is such an emotive topic, but I really feel that there is no 'one size fits all' approach. Everyone has to do what works for them as an individual, and as a family, be that being a SAHM, working full time, private, state, whatever. There is no 'right' answer, and no 'perfect' solution. Every fa...

Wandsworth Food Bank?

Does anyone know where to donate food to Wandsworth Food Bank? I've had a look online, but it only lists the places where the actual foodbanks themselves are, rather than places to drop items? I'm sure I remember seeing, for example, a trolley marked 'Wandsworth Food Bank' in the hall bit at St Luke...

Re: What is the cost for a childminder

I think that is quite reasonable. My friend in SW12 charges £80 per day (however she can take them 8am-7pm) but I think regardless, she charges £80 for the day.

NEW fancy footwork leotard for sale (new style)

As anyone whose daughter does Fancy Footwork ballet will know, they have launched a new uniform. I bought my daughter the size 0 instead of the 00, and it is too small, but I have thrown away all the packaging and returns slips. Very annoying. Anyway, it is this one: http://www.idsshop.co.uk/Product...

Re: second baby books?

Do you mean books for yourself?

I liked Gina Ford's 'Contented Baby With Toddler' book (not for everyone!) and I also liked 'Coping with Two' by Simone Cave and Dr Caroline Fertleman.

Good luck! Two is hard work (but totally worth it!)

Does anyone have a step ladder I could borrow next weekend?!

Slightly random request-but does anyone have a small step ladder I could borrow for next weekend? Happy to collect and drop back (locally-ish, we're just off Northcote Rd). I'd need it Saturday (20th) until Sunday afternoon/Monday morning.

Thanks.

Anyone able to recommend someone to re-cover a sofa?

I have a standard size Sofa Workshop sofa, and after 2 kids and a LOT of use, the covers have seen better days! I just need someone to make some new covers which are washable (our current ones have zips to undo and can be machine washed), and don't cost a fortune. We are in SW11-any thoughts? Thanks.

Re: Honeywell mum offering drop off OR afterschool care (2 h

Hi, A couple of things to add: The rate is £12 p/h per child, but for siblings I would only charge half price for the second sibling, so £18 p/h for two siblings. I can only offer before and after school care to children at Honeywell. If your child is over 8 years old I would be able to offer longer...
