A big shout out for La Parmigiana on the Lower Richmond Road. This is a fabulous little gem of an Italian restaurant. Visited last night, amazing and tasty food served by friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Someone I know just saw an attempted mugging in Station Rd by Barnes Station. A young man had a knife pulled on him by one man on foot and another a scooter. They wanted the young man’s phone but when they saw they had been seen by the person I know, they gave up and went away.

So the deputy leader of the opposition wants to pull the ladder up on the over generous RTB discounts ( not wrong in my view). But only after she herself has benefitted from these discounts and also while she had 2 homes .It gets interesting here as she claims after marrying her husband they lived apart for the first 5 years of their marriage in separate homes.Unfortunately the neighbours of her rtb home say they never saw her there whereas her husbands neighbours say she lived with him.Was she protecting her discount? As she had 2 homes should she have paid capital gains on the profit of the sale? Did she declare the correct address at the time of her election nomination? Was she claiming single occupancy status on either or both of the homes for council tax purposes? Is it really acceptable that a senior member of the opposition has 2 homes for some 5 years in the middle of a housing crisis?Just as well she's not a leading tory politician or this board would be in meltdown with the dishonesty and hypocrisy shown.

Yesterday we had the BBC local news on in the background at home. A woman who lived in an apartment block, aka block of flats, in Canary Wharf said her service charges had gone up to £33,000 per year. I asked my husband if I had heard that right, £33,000 per year, because I was only half listening. It was correct. I hope that Michael Gove really does do something about these extortionate bills that are ruining the lives of people trying to put a roof over their heads. It isn’t just enormous services charges, it is the land rent scam which sees the amount doubled fairly frequently. I feel so sorry for people caught up in these situations.

I have just driven along the URR from E.Putney to Priory Lane and back. It was my understanding that the 20mph zone ends at Gwendolin AV. but there are several big 20s painted on the road after Gwendolin Av. (I didnt see any new 20mph signs). On the way back, just before the pool, there is a speed camera sign that says 30. So I'm confused!

Sad to see the Taj Mahal is permanently closed. The oldest Indian restaurant in Putney and to my mind the best.

Michael Gove investigated by Commons standards watchdoghttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-68435262"...The probe relates to Mr Gove's register of financial interests, according to the Standards Commissioner's website.There are no further details about the investigation, with these kept confidential until it concludes.However, last week the Guardian reported Mr Gove had failed to register VIP hospitality at a football match with Conservative donor David Meller.In August 2021, he was entertained at a Queens Park Rangers match with the businessman, according to the newspaper.Mr Meller's company, Meller Designs, was awarded six contracts for personal protective equipment (PPE) and hand sanitiser worth £164m after a referral from Mr Gove, who was then Cabinet Office minister, in 2020.The standards commissioner is not thought to be investigating the contracts, just whether he registered the hospitality correctly....."

Please vote for the new conservators. It's relatively easy to do online.They spend your money if you live within the zone and it comes from the Council for those who can't afford to pay so it affects everyone in the area.

Another shop has shut which is just after the Spotted Horse, a shop which if your 70 makes you look 20. But it obviously didn't work.

A man had fallen on the pavement he had a zimmer frame, 2 young ladies were helping him. I ran and got a towel out of a hairdressers to cover his stomach as he was cold. Nobody tried to move him incase he had broken something. He was on the cold pavement, the Ambulance was meant to be 20 mins or more. So glad these young ladies stayed with him.
