Lives in Upper Tooting address verified

Well the thing is, nobody actually needs to go up my road - they'd be better off just sticking to Trinity Road / Upper Tooting Park rather than cutting through my narrow road but I think they panic when they see signs up ahead so they turn off early and ... [ more ]
Around where you are, it doesn't help that I think they change the traffic flow on St James's Drive from day to night don't they? Utter chaos!
I have a king size frame - It's all unscrewed apart so is in pieces, but it's perfectly good (except I think I might have stripped two of the holes when dismantling it, but I think that would be easy enough to get around). If you have someone who has the ... [ more ]
Hi Stephanie - I'm not sure whether you got my email on Monday? Let me know if you still want it. Thanks :)
No more leaflets please :(. Our hall is flooded with them, despite a sign on the door asking for NO commercial leaflets. They just go straight into recycling.
I had an awful time switching to Sky, but TalkTalk is like using 3G for broadband. I think I was just unlucky, but it was horrendous. I had 3 weeks without internet and no compensation. Still TalkTalk...don't bother!
Thanks for your replies. The doorbell rang about 8-10 times between 1.30 and 8pm which felt like a relentless pace. I don't want to open it as a few weeks ago I did and it was a junkie who started going into a spiel about selling wares (I don't even ... [ more ]
Allison, I was just walking home via Marius Road and passed a Battersea Dogs and Cats cold caller too - wanted to ask him if he had hit my road the day before (but errrm instead I just replied to his 'hello' and walked on). For what it's worth, he looked ... [ more ]
JEAN - thanks for the tip. It would work if the decorators hadn't painted our windows shut, but that's a story for another day ;) It is a good idea though. Thanks!
Hi Katie - If only to validate that you aren't going mad, I have noticed a bit of this too. It doesn't sound quite as bad as yours, but it is weird. I can't offer a solution I am afraid though - just commiseration.
No I'm not - I'm in Upper Tooting, near Balham. The mystery continues! I just got Sky multiroom so that has sorted things out (at great expense ;)
Sorry just found this thread: https://www.streetlife.com/conversation/2oc7hzolefp14/ - still would love to hear any new feedback :)
Thanks for your responses - I am glad that you are enjoying more quiet Tzctstre. Like you, I don't have that much room to play with in my living room as the door frame comes up almost to the wall (about 4cm spare). Not great at all. Will have to suffer ... [ more ]
Vito it is next to Tooting Bec station on Trinity Road - where the old Smoke Bar and Honey and Venom were. I hope to god it doesn't go under like the rest of them, leaving the Wheatsheaf as the only alternative.
Thanks Shahid Rafiq - I will do in a week or so. Funnily enough I am an IT contractor myself, but just can't get this thing to work - maybe it's because I'm in content and website build rather than support. ;) Either way, it's been driving me mad and has ... [ more ]
I used moonfruit and it was quite simple. There is a charge but you get a lot of functionality for the money.

I am a freelance copywriter - primarily for the web but I also do offline copy, including marketing collateral. I am trying to get enough clients to enable me to do freelance full time, but as yet I am not earning enough to take the plunge. Because I ... [ more ]
Thank you Pete. I appreciate your consideration! Ruth, I do believe you, but I think it is difficult unless you get the push you need (as in redundancy), particularly if you are not sure about your husband's job stability either! It is too much ... [ more ]
There should be one on Eatonville Road I believe, on the Monday.
There is a hardware store just south of Clapham South that does it too. It's on the corner on the left side if you are driving south to Balham - can't remember the name of it but if you google Calor Gas dealers in Wandsworth you will find a few.
I have thought both of these things when considering options. Katy, the orders are pretty big (worth a few hundred pounds each) and they have done multiple orders from one shop, when they had already 'proved themselves' after the first one. It is very ... [ more ]
Nope. It's just me and my husband. It is indeed really weird and disturbing!
Well that would be the best of the possible options actually. Hopefully we are not that annoying that someone would do that though. I truly am baffled. If I find out anything I will let you know!
Ha ha. Even in my sleep I wouldn't by ugg boots and fit flops, let alone a trilby!
There's one in Trinity Road, quite near Tooting Bec station. You can't miss it as it has a big sparkling sign saying LAUNDRETTE on it. It's called Silverdale I think.
I have always used a company whose name I don't know - London Chimney Sweep or something imaginative like that? They are on Balham High Road and charge 35 pounds. They are on 0208 772 6499 and they come on the weekends too.
Oh and you get a certificate too.
There is a new Italian deli on Trinity Road, on the south side. I reckon they could use the business!
Oh everybody is terribly polite here! Lovely.
I can help. I know the number for a chimney sweep and where to cheaply buy low emission coal. I still don't know if it's legal, but I suspect it must be because they sell it at all the petrol stations so they must know people are going to burn it?!
I have the same issue, in an Edwardian house. No idea what it's made of but will look forward to hearing any advice that you get!
