Hi all - my friend has a "Stella and Dot" franchise, selling jewellery, bags, scarves and other accessories.

Re: Primary school application form - advice please!

Thanks Goldhawk, I agree, don't think it makes sense to leave it blank. Just wanted views to check this (I'm rubbish at knowing whether there are tactics in these kind of things, or if it really is as straightforward as it seems)

All of these are within a reasonable distance of our home (I think all within a mile), although with catchment areas being what they are I know that we would not ha...

I'm also interested in this, or indeed any other displays on/around the Balham/Wandsworth Common area. We have two little ones so would prefer to keep within a short walking distance.

Re: Registration at birth for prep schools

Although it seems crazy, register ASAP. We thought we were early in registering our child at Hornsby when he was 6 weeks old (for entry sept 2017) and we have just heard that we were not early enough! (And he is an Autumn baby so we were registering early in the academic year) So if you are serious ...

Any Recommendations for mid-sleeper bed

Can anyone recommend a mid-sleeper - ideally one with a desk and some storage. Will be for a 4 year old and would (ideally) like it to last 4-5 years.

something like this one . . .

Re: self catering in the Algarve

Hi - we stayed in Belmar Spa and Beach Resort on outskirts of Lagos last year, from memory about 1.5 miles from town centre. It is very close to a lovely beach, in a fairly residential area. But would recommend having a car for at least part of the time as it is too far to walk to supermarket and ca...

Wanted: Lascal Buggy Board Mini

Hi - looking to buy Lascal Buggy Board Mini. I really only need the Board bit, I foolishly let our one drop onto the pavement with a bit of a clunk and a vital spring has snapped out of it. Hoping our son is very soon off the Board for good so don't particularly want to spend on a brand new one . . ...
