Re: Online photo storage

There are countless places where you can share photos; flickr (if you have a yahoo account); google photo/picassa (google email account) and so on. I thought dropbox was more for sharing files...so yes you can upload them but rather than the photo you'll see it as a file name. As a quick measure if ...

Re: Local State Schools - Give us a clue

asouth Regarding what schools were offered to those living in the area you mention, part of it may have depended on whether they actually utilised their full six choices rather than just applying for Honeywell and Belleville. Those we know were offered Falconbrook. Not sure about top end of Alfristo...

Re: feeling ripped off between the commons

Maxey, It's not just a case of converting to Catholicism. You also need to attend Mass on a Sunday for 3 years to meet the criteria for the entrance for the Catholic schools; then you also need to live fairly close too and appreciate that they only have 1 x class intake per year (e.g Holy Ghost). Sa...

Re: Belleville catchment area

The catchment area for Belleville (and obviously all schools) varies from year to year and is also determined whether there were a large number of siblings in that given year. The furthest child offered a place before the start of term September 2013 (via shortest walking distance) for Belleville wa...

Re: Day nurseries that offer half days?

Assuming your child is >2 and a half, Clapham Park Montessori (off Abbeville Road) offer half days and I believe you are not obliged to attend every day either. If your child is one or walking they have an infant community at the same address. Alternatively you could try Broomwood Montessori (Kyrle ...

Re: Italy - suggestions for Dolomites with family

We stayed at the Sport Hotel in San Vigilio di Marebbe. Barbara and Roman are wonderful hosts. I can't remember the name of the place in Auronzo (sorry). We'll go to the Dolomites again though next time it'll probably be a different area; Selva (Val Gardena) or Ortisei. However there are so many bea...

Re: Anyone know about Christmas tree collection by Wandswort

The pavements on ours and the surrounding streets are littered with Christmas trees so anyone trying to push their child in a pram or who uses a wheelchair has to go into the road, back onto the pavement, back on the road and so on. Complete joke really. I called the council earlier and they said th...

Re: Italy - suggestions for Dolomites with family

The Dolomites are truly an area of natural beauty and not to mention the natural park being granted a UNESCO heritage site a few years ago. We've been there twice; once when our son was 9 months old to a place called Auronzo di Cadore, well known for it's lake and at an altitude of 800m. It's a grea...

Re: Cat Repellent Ideas?

It all depends on how big the area is. You mention it's by the front door. If it's an area of soil, netting could be a cheap (though not pretty) deterrent. Otherwise plant a shrub or flowers to cover it. There's a plant called Coleus canina which is supposed to provide a scent not favourable to cats...
