Re: How do you get spark back?

Oh, and my top tip is to eat with the kids at the weekends. We try to eat at 5.30/6, get the kids off to bed and then have the WHOLE evening together without cooking and eating. Sometimes we just have pudding later, but it makes it much easier to get an early night and still have time together in th...

Re: How do you get spark back?

You are definitely not alone. Firstly, don't panic or worry too much yet. My husband and I feel like we are only just starting to get our relationship back on track and our kids are 5 and 3. We have talked about it a lot, very important to be honest but also kind to each other. It is often the case ...

Re: done and dusted - has anyone used them?

I have used Done and Dusted and was pleased. I think the look around first is useful if you want them to brief a cleaner on your requirements. I find it tricky to be too bossy with a cleaner because I think they are likely to be much better at cleaning than I am! With D&D, I was able to comfortably ...

Re: Drinking whilst breastfeeding

My GP said that the body is clever and makes milk from the good stuff in your blood stream. The real dangers are dehydration, passing out, depression-related to alcohol consumption... and from my experience, alcohol did have an effect on the amount of milk I generated. So the conclusion is drink res...

Re: Should 8yr olds be given this topic to study???

My kids are younger but I have nephews who are 8 and 10 and I think they handle this stuff better than older teens. If your son seems upset then maybe it is not right but if he is OK with it then surely that is a good thing. One less grizzly part of life to discover later on?

Re: Baby & Toddler in Same Room, Crazy to Consider It?

I had my girls together from when they were 3 months and 24 months. I used to go in and feed the little one in the night and occasionally the older one would grunt and I would say hello and she would drift off again. The greatest thing has been that they have kept each other company in the mornings....

Re: Outdoor wooden playhouse / shed recommendations

If you are prepared to drive there, Bourne Buildings just outside Farnham have good quality stuff. I don't know how their prices compare but they seem to be the kind of business who is keen to price match / negotiate and were very helpful. We only bought a shed from them but it was a bespoke size an...

Re: Garden company recommendation?

Charlie is a good guy, he has a team of sub-contractors who we found to be very good. His number is 07976 426203 We have done A LOT of work to our...

Re: Martin Moore & Plain English kitchens -carpenter?

Our kitchen was handmade by a small firm in Surrey who are based in the same village as my parents. They are called Heartwood Joinery. If you would like to come and check out our kitchen (installed a year ago) you could see if it compares with the high-end brands. Heartwood will do something complet...

Re: Where to live ... N-SW12-8PJ

House in Nightingale Triangle, ex-council, not the prettiest but a lovely quiet road and local area - while very near Balham... it is a steal!

Smart and flattering jeans... recommendations please!

I don't think it should be so difficult to find jeans/casual trousers that fulfil the following criteria: - can look suitably smart in the evening when all around you are in skirts/dresses - don't lose their colour or have the faded look from the outset - are not indecently tight around the tops of ...
