Re: Allfarthing School hailed in parliamentary review!

My kids don't go to Allfarthing but I have heard about the new and progressive head there. He's got great ideas and a real energy. I'm glad the word is getting out!

Re: advice on tenancy /accommodation needed please

If you need to find somewhere relatively cheap to live in the interim then you could consider being a property guardian. There was a post on this recently.

Re: advice on tenancy /accommodation needed please

Re: 17 year old boy killed outside Clapham Tube Station

The second suspect in this case has now been charged. Another teenager, only 18 years old. This violence needs to end. Kids killing each other, so sad.

Re: Opticians for toddler

I'm sorry, I don't know, but I am interested in your post. I have never taken my kids (7 and 4) to see an optician. They don't have any problems, but I'm just wondering whether kids should have regular check ups with the optician, at what age this should start and if it is offered on the NHS. I regu...

Re: Downstairs toilets vs bigger kitchen

Don't get rid of your toilet downstairs, it is so important for so many reasons: a) kids - I've had several incidents when they don't quite make it up the stairs in time! - oops b) guests - I have to completely clear out my bathroom every time guests come because the family bathroom is also the gues...

Re: To Board or Not To Board?

That is the question!! I went to boarding school and I hated it. My brother went to boarding school and he loved it. I think lots of parents get wowed by the prestige, grandeur, history, academics and facilities at boarding school, but before you look at any of that, my advice is to really understan...

Re: Hey, please could you help with my final year project on food waste at Brighton University?

I've completed the survey.  Sounds like a fantastic project. My pet hate is wasting food. It was drilled into me as a child not to throw food away so I do the same with my kids. Perhaps it's something to do with our parent's generation of using everything to the max, repairing and recycling items an...

Re: Pumpkin Carving with the kids?

I love Halloween. Normally I let the kids choose what they want on their pumpkin, but I do all the carving. They are only 6 and 4. To be honest, after watching me carve for about 5 mins, they get bored so I call them over once I'm done. I give them battery operated candles and they like putting them...

Re: Clearly God doesn’t love you, that’s why you’re in a wheelchair

This is absolutely disgusting. And why hasn't the bus driver intervened? I've just looked up TFL's guidelines to bus drivers on wheel chair access (the latest I can find is Oct 2017) and I think it's too soft frankly. I know bus drivers shouldn't put themselves at risk but they should be able to con...

Re: Bouncy Castle

Yes. Bubble & Bounce are brilliant and have a wide selection of bouncy castles and inflatables. My garden is quite small and they had a perfect inflatable and ball pit for it! They have everything from big to small and the customer service was great. Here is the link http://bubbleandbounce.co.uk/

Re: Chance to meet our MP Marsha de Cordova at the Alma Pub (by Wandsworth Town station) on Thursday 18th October

I was shocked when the nation voted to leave. I was disgusted by the underhand tactics of the official Leave campaigns, but now I am no longer shocked. I feel somewhat naive to have expected that our politicians had any kind of moral dignity.  I'm sad to be honest, very sad. If there is no respect f...
