Re: Au Pair Babysitting Rates

The fully qualified nannies who babysit for us charge between £10 and £12 per hour for evening babysitting. I would say for an au pair £7.50 would be more reasonable...

Re: Sibling registration for private schools

Hi there. IMO that would be a waste of money - almost all local private schools accept siblings first even those that assess. I have never heard of a year with more siblings than places...

Re: IVF Questions

Gosh I think it is really tricky one...I was also in the same boat...fell pregnant really easily first time round (although I was 33) but second time round it was very tricky (I was 36). In the end we did tests and the results were not good for my age - my ovarian reserve was low for a 36 year old s...

Re: Road rage from a local businessman

I have watched the footage on the Mail website and it looks like the driver did try and deliberately swerve into the path of the cyclist. His behaviour is completely reprehensible as we all agree - to me it suggests this guy has serious mental health issues and there must be something else going on ...

Victorian tiling by Ground and Steel?

Hi there, has anyone had any experience of Ground and Steel?
They have just given me a quote which seems fairly reasonable but would be great to hear from anyone who has actually used them?
Thanks!

Re: Nurseries in Balham/Wandsworth Common

Both my children have also attended the Wainwright Montessori on Chestnut Grove (my 3 year old is still there and my elder son attended from 2 to 4.5). In my opinion is an absolutely wonderful nursery. The teachers are very kind and warm and the environment is extremely nurturing. It has a very much...

Re: Worries about creepy sleepover family

I don't want to hijack this thread but the original post got me thinking...I wondered what people's thoughts were about at what age it would be appropriate for a child to watch news footage from 9/11? my view is it depends to some extent on the child's level of maturity and sensitivity and whether t...

Re: How to hide my baby bump at work?!

Really sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I wore a long scarf too but it didn't really fool anyone - when I did announce I was pregnant with no 2 after 13 week scan no one was surprised (well perhaps a few of the older guys but no-one else)! Honestly speaking I think it is really hard to cover up...

Re: Two closures on Bellevue Road?

Hi Annabel I heard this too so I asked in Tickled Pink and they confirmed they will be closing in July when there is a break in their lease. They said they cannot afford the rent any longer. There is a notice up in the window of the Inside Man confirming they are closing. It is such a shame and I pe...
