  1. Ditto I am in a sort of similar boat....
  2. Oh no!! Going back to bed and hiding under the duvet sounds like a fantastic idea
  3. I am on the East Coast, 10 mins from the beach It can be complicated but you never have to wait long for a bus. Its also so cheap.
  4. I would be more then happy for DD1 (12) and DD2 ( to fly from the UK to Singapore unaccompanied. They are very sensible. I grew up in London and have been fairly independent since secondary school age. I started going to school by bus and then cycled. I always went to Camden Market, Kings Road or Covent Garden at the weekends shopping with my school friends, using either the bus or tube. I am trying to get the right balance, its not easy Living here has certainly helped the transition.
  5. I am. I leave here a week Saturday I hate goodbyes... Claret, I will be up soon to have a look at a Go I will let you know when and give you plenty of notice Thank you for all of your advice guys She has taken the public bus to school since last August, which is in the centre of Singapore (like Oxford Street). I am happy for her to go/return from sleepovers on her own on public transport. I like the idea of going with her first so she is familiar with the journey Sha, I would trust DD1 to do your DS's journey. As everybody else has said, it all depends on the individual. Something I have just remembered I took DD1 on her school route 3 times before she had to do it solo. I am shocked about the tube fact
  6. would you let your children travel alone long distance on the trains? I ask because we will be living in Hampshire and my sister lives in Devon. DD1 is very close to her cousin and it would be lovely for them to be able to visit each other without me having to drive the 3 hours each way
  7. This was my first thought also. Why would you ride a motorbike that is capable of doing speeds of 150mph + and not wear a helmet? Its suicide
  8. Skinny Pigs are popular over here. They are hugely into little critters like these and sell loads of potions and lotions for them. They are not cheap either!
  9. In the teachers thank you card one boy in DD2 class said "Thank you for teaching me things that my Mum and Dad don't know"! She has just left year 3...
  10. I am not liking the sound of this at all ED is 12 so I have all of this to come I will be of the mind not to wash anything unless its in the basket. I will prob dump the whole lot of clothes on said child's floor should they decide to put clean clothes in the wash basket
  11. I have mine pierced and have only ever worn a tiny silver stud in it Rings are just not my thing I had it pierced many years ago by a friend of a friend who had a gun on the steps of The Brixton Academy I am still trying to pluck up the courage to have my tragus pierced
  12. Thats just so sad Poor Bobski I agree on the 5 year warranty being a must when spending that sort of money. Not sure what I will call him when I get him
  13. I am thinking about treating myself to one How are you guys getting on with them? I know some of you have had them for a few years now
  14. Big congratulations The cake topper is fantastic
  15. Well done you You must have soooo much patience
  16. Can I join? It can get very lonely here in Singapore when the UK is asleep!
  17. Thank you Rhapsody I can never understand why people do not have there dogs spayed
  18. Yeah, bit of a last minute thing... Just me and the kids.. They want chickens again! DS was funny and said "not the ones you eat but the ones you collect eggs from"!! We will be moving back to our old house. I cannot believe how much the Omlet shop sells now, like WIRs! I fancy a Go because of the removable nest. Might have to visit the mothership for a looksie! I do fancy a bull breed dog, just need to do loads of homework first. One of the rescue places does seminars, which is a fantastic idea.
  19. I whole heartedly agree with Beach Chick. Huge alarm bells rang when you said that she needs to be lunged for half an hour before she can be ridden
