Nanny / Au Pair Holiday Pay

Last Updated on : 13th May 2019
Nanny Pay


Dear NappyValleyNetter,

As I mentioned last week, we’re turning TEN this year and celebrating with some brand new awards.

Imagine The Oscars twinned with The Booker Prize and you’d be totally on the wrong track, but ours are still going to be wonderful.

The only fly in the ointment is that Mr NappyValleyNet is already manically giggling about his planned wardrobe malfunction on the award’s night red carpet.

This is, actually, OK as we won’t have a carpet (red or otherwise) or even an awards ceremony, but we’d still love your votes as we’ll be broadcasting the results in the very near future via our emails, website and social media.

So click here to nominate your favourite local business whilst I fetch the dressmakers tape my husband is asking for…


Here is what you’ve been talking about this week on NappyValleyNet…

MT is a bit grumpy that her brother has suggested equity release to their mother. Good idea or is that inheritance under threat? (read more)

H. would love your thoughts on typical nanny holiday and sick pay practice (read more).

And JM asks the same about au pair pay (read more).

And I should highlight this thread on nanny holiday pay from earlier this month (read more).

We have an update on SS being left out of that girls holiday to Ibiza (read more). She’s asked why and had a reply.

K. is considering laser hair removal for her daughter – any experiences? (read more)

B. is looking for a good local venue for a first birthday party for 60 (read more). Oooh – is that Meghan planning Archie’s first birthday ALREADY?

If you love a good pub quiz there’s a great thread going here. Any other favourites to add? (read more)

220 more electrical sockets for vehicle charging have been added to street lights across the borough (read more).

G. would love you to sign a petition to encourage a People’s Vote (yes, we’re talking Brexit) (read more).

And A. poses the topical question of what we are all doing to reduce plastic consumption – make it a family effort (read more).

TVMum found a lost toy near Wandsworth Common – anyone missing it? (read more)

Camp Suisse have launched their Summer Camp bookings. The hills really will be alive with the sound of 7 to 17-year olds having the time of their lives in the Swiss Alps this summer. Husky dog sleighing on a glacier, anyone? (read more)


We have an umbrella full of House & Garden questions

A. would love your advice on a consent to let clause in a share of freehold contract (read more).

S. asks if anyone has Nest cameras for security – they’ve just had an attempted break-in (read more).
