“I’ve just had a text asking why I wear women’s clothes,” said Mr NappyValleyNet.
“And it’s from my mum.”
It’s not often my weekends start with comments like these but last Saturday, as we settled down for breakfast, it was how a perplexed Mr NappyValleyNet described the latest message from his mother.
“She says it’s on Twitter.”
I went from being equally confused to realising that I may be in a little bit of trouble.
“I think I can explain,” I replied.
“You know this morning when Jane from JanePlan dropped off the food I’d ordered.”
“Yes,” he replied slowly.
“And you know you were wearing my dressing gown when you answered the door.”
“Yes, it was all I could grab” he replied, even more slowly.
“Well I may have Tweeted about that.”
“Brilliant,” he replied a little testily, “is there ANYTHING about me that doesn’t end up on Twitter or NappyValleyNet?”
I didn’t reply but as of this morning I think he may have his answer.

Two road safety posts. DM is concerned that a proposed new bus route for the 255 will mean a bus every 12 minutes running by Telferscot school and Asquiths (click here). Nuttymummy is worried that a proposal to remove the pedestrian guard rail by Clapham Common West Side will make the crossing very dangerous. We’ve *just* set up a petition against the guard rail removal so please please please…click here for details
A question that many of us will have struggled with. VTG is thinking of going back to work but where should she look? Where might she find part-time work?

TWO party wall questions. MooMoo is having a mare with her neighbours. Work has had to stop as they’re refusing to agree to the plans (click here).
