Re: C - Section at St Georges

I doubt you would be asked to leave if you don't want to. I had a planned c-section with my second at St Thomas' and whilst I was told that I was free to go the next day, it felt quite daunting because I had a toddler at home. When it came time for me to be discharged, the midwife could tell I was f...

Re: School trips

At our state school they tend to ask for around £5 voluntary contribution and any costs over an above that are met by the school. Our school goes to Vauxhall city farm every year and they appear to charge £99 for a class of 30 kids...

Re: Meteor St site of Belleville

There are clubs before and after school at both sites. They change every term. There isn't any provision to transfer from one site to another for the clubs as not really enough time but there's no need to as clubs run at both sites.

Re: Can a solicitor mummy ever achieve a work/family life happy balance?

Have to agree with everything else everyone has said. My hubby is a lawyer and also a number of my friends are. The legal profession is such an antiquated one and most definitely not family friendly, to women or men for that matter! Most women I know have left their law firms once they have had chil...

Re: Could an accountant answer a very simple question for me?

I agree that it seems wrong, but it isn't really an accounting or VAT question, more what you agreed that the 14% would be calculated on in the contract. Theoretically it could say 14% of anything, it is just a way for them to calculate their fees. If it does say that it is 14% of the gross builders...

Re: Help London flat too BIG!!

My advice would be to change agents straight away. Going with a cheaper agent is not a good idea if you don't have a perfect property that will simply sell itself. A damn good agent will proactively find you your buyer and produce amazing photos and description. They will actively sell your property...

Re: Primary school offer day... Get the school you wanted?

Actually, the new sibling policy for BV doesn't make sense at all now. The sibling of that child which has just been offered a place some 900+meters away will not have sibling priority and could theoretically end up at any school in the borough, making drop off and pick up impossible. Such a silly i...

Re: Primary school offer day... Get the school you wanted?

Great news about the BTC offer distances. It won't be due to the new sibling policy as only siblings of the new 2017 intake will be restricted.

I think it's probably due to another extra BV class and a stagnant property market but good news all the same.

Re: New step mum

Hi there, I have a 5 year old boy and 7 year old girl. My kids love playing with new friends, particularly my daughter who has a thing for taking little girls under her wing as she's desperate for a little sister! We'd be more than happy to meet up next week on one of the commons or battersea park f...

Re: PLEASE everyone, tweet your MP and ask for a meaningful vote.

I agree with others who have said that the whole 'childless' 'dictator' stuff just sounds hysterical (not in the funny sense of the word, more deranged!). Your tone and personal comments are offensive. There is nothing wrong with that in that you are free to offend if you wish but they completely de...

Re: NHS hospitals allow elective c-sections?

5 years ago I had an elective at St Thomas'. I was lucky and had a consultant who saw no issue with it what so ever. No regrets at all. All very controlled; a lovely experience. Recovered significantly quicker than with my first, natural delivery. I was up and about the next day almost like I hadn't...

You might be pleasantly surprised. 4 kids left my daughters year 1 class and considering there are 4 classes per year group the number of places that free up every year can be quite a few....
