Wandsworth Park attack

Last Updated on : 13th July 2020
Wandsworth Park

Dear NappyValleyNetter,

My single friend was over for a lockdown-overdue gossip and glass of wine.

“It’s SO nice to have some adult company,” she said, “it’s pretty much been just me and the kids for the last few months.”

For a moment I had no idea who she was referring to but the penny dropped when Mr NVN waddled into the kitchen sporting a very sullen expression.

“Can you have a word with our son?” he said (and I SWEAR this is true), “he won’t give me back my Xbox controller and I’m due online in a few moments.”

“Well,” said my friend once I’d sorted out who should have which toy, “I think, on reflection, we’ve both coped bl**dy well!”


Here’s what you’ve been talking about on NappyValleyNet:

Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a girl was attacked in Wandsworth Park (read more). Please do help if you can.

M. needs a counsellor for her 15 year old who is struggling with friendships and exams (read more). Any recommendations gratefully received at this super difficult time for everyone but especially for teenagers.

Balham residents are being asked for their thoughts on names for a new electoral ward in South Balham. Will it be South Balham, Heaver, Bedford Hill or South South Chelsea? (read more)

More helpful advice has come in for W. whose daughter is struggling at her private school and will not be heading to the same schools as many of her peers after the 11+ (read more).

L. needs some advice on a cohabitation agreement. I was tempted to make a joke about this but it’s actually pretty serious so let’s we’ll all be like Legally Blond and shout SIDEBAR and OVERRULED until you are contractually watertight (read more).

A. recommends the fairy godmother to declutter your home and magic away unwanted items – what even from my teenager’s room? (read more)

And E. is stumped that she owns a share of the freehold, but her lease is less than 60 years. How does she extend it? (read more) As quickly as possible is my informal advice.

Some helpful responses coming through on starting a new business which might come in handy for anyone who has ventured out on their own during lockdown (read more).

J. has left a pair of Nerf Guns on Clapham Common Westside. Anyone seen them? (read more) Along with his Xbox I’ve never seen Mr NVN as excited as when he bought the biggest baddest (his words) Nerf Bazooka at Toys R Us.

A is trying to organise for grandma to come from Australia, but the Australian border is closed except for exceptional cases. Anyone know how to smuggle out an OAP? (read more)

M.’s brother-in-law has set up a mobile bike repair and can do bike services from £50 (read more). OK we may want to use him – seriously. If anyone has already do let us know how you got on!

S. is a nineteen year old football-pro offering coaching (read more). In football obvs.

Fancy freshly baked sourdough straight to your door? Good in Bread is offering a 20% discount on your first subscription order (read more). Gotta love a bit of LockDown Loaf!

Coco Clara is a bespoke jewellery company set up by a local mum making beautiful heirlooms to pass down the generations (read more). Gosh it’s like those Patek Philippe adverts where you don’t own the watch but pass it on to the next generation after they’ve nagged you incessantly for it.
