Hi Rachel Yes, they are. BW June
Instead of asking for recommendations, which I usually do, I'm giving one. Just had my carpets cleaned by Kevally, run by Kevin Bushell. I got four quotes, one of which was far too cheap and two of which were far too expensive. Kevin's was in the ... [ more ]
We used rug doctor on our sitting room carpet and literally the walkway around the bed in 2 rooms. Very pleased with the result and carpets still in one piece! We went to morrisons as they had a special offer for a 48 hour hire.
Dmitriy - "Rug Doctor " to " RugKiller". So funny! The mind boggles.
We have not seen our beautiful black cat, Pepper, for several days and would love to find her. She has never been missing for this long before. Pepper is 18 months old and black from tip to toe. She has no collar, but she has been microchipped. ... [ more ]
Thank you so much for your useful comments. We let her out and she was back to chill in our garden within the hour. Phew.
That's great news. I've seen all your laminated posters. Yesterday I was talking about Pepper to my neighbour who has two black cats. He said one of his had been out for longer than normal and just as he was starting to worry, they returned totally ... [ more ]

I was walking my dog this morning and found a pair of prescription sunglasses in the grass. I have bought them home with me. Please contact me if you have lost them / know someone who has lost them.
You could take them to Skylark cafe or the Tennis hut on Wandsworth Common when you are next there. Both have kindly agreed to accept lost property. Unclaimed property will then be collected by the Parks Police. Kind of you to rescue the glasses!
Thank you - great idea.

Hi,i have a Hotpoint Aquarius 7kg tumble dryer to give away. It works on a low heat. I have been advised it needs a new element for it to work on a high heat. I would like to offer it, incase someone can fix it or use it for parts.

Anyone have any old unwanted lanterns for garden party need more to make it look good! Thanks
I have used jam jars with some medium strong garden wire wound around the groove and then extended over the top to make a hanger. Looks very similar to some lanterns sold in the shop. Simple but effective.
Paper bags with a handful of sand or gravel in the bottom and battery candles look really lovely.
I had mentioned after having heard recommended, a small building/decorating called Goodnews Services. to a good friend of mine who hd to get some decorating and a new floor laid in a small one bed flat in Putney. They gave the job to the company ... [ more ]
The problem was getting the work done within a very short time frame between vacating tenants and new ones moving in. These chaps assured them they could finish the work in time. Their usual builder was holidaying.
Thanks Rosanna for sympathising. Just be careful never to trust this builder!
Can anyone recommend an oven cleaning company that would clean the oven, hob and stainless steel splashback. Thanks
There are two big plots, opposite each other, just up from Tooting Bec tube, which are being developed currently. Does anyone know what they are to become? One of the plots is the old Bedford House ( or E OR OU as it became in its dilapidation...) ... [ more ]
Pull the other one. That blue wings pile is Balham's Eiffel Tower - no doubt a lovely view and comfortable to live in, from what a former resident told me, but it's as ugly as from the outside.
I think the Bedford House development is the truly ugly one. Unlike Bedford House which sat back off the main road, the new thing is a huge, square block that will loom over the main road...

I wondered if there was a service available like Airbnb/Uber but for washing machines - where people could pay their neighbour to borrow their machine (use it in the neighbours house)? Or if anyone local does a laundry service that you can ... [ more ]
I think it is a brilliant idea! Amy, you have come up with a great business plan
Great ideas are often simple! Not that I need the tumble-drier but once or twice a year I need to tumble-dry the dawn-filled pillows and then it becomes an issue. Then again, taking wet pillows to a launderette would be odd...
