    Stabbings in Sheffield May 2018

    I agree. 15 year old, he was a teenage BOY who had not even taken his GCSEs. I have a 14 year old who goes to Meadowhead School, it is worrying.

    Taxi complaints

    I used City twice recently, two very different experience. First driver on time, polite & pleasant. The second one had an attitude, seriously I didn't feel like a paying customer, but like he was doing me a favour. And he was doing 20mph as too busy scrolling and looking at news items on his tablet.

    Help getting back into work

    Talking about books, years ago I came across a book called "feel the fear but do it anyway" by Susan Jeffers. Basically about feeling scared but not letting the fear stop you from doing what you want to do, I found it really useful during quite a miserable period of my life. I wouldn't rule volunteering out, but go for an organisation that can offer structured training and have reasonable expectations of you, otherwise it's difficult to motivate yourself to bother. Good luck..

    Baby cholic help

    There's probably no harm trying gripe water, luckily I didn't need it but a few people (older) I know swore by it.
  6. Imagine what Sheffield would be like if we didn't have the two universities...

    Sheffield Bus Changes

    Life seemed much easier before this major bus change. I used to have a seat and didn't have to wait more than 5-6 minutes for a bus at 9am to take me from Abbeydale Road to the bottom of London Road. Guess I'm lucky I got on the bus at all because people two stops down waved at a bus that didn't stop being packed already. If my son missed his bus before he only had to wait 10 minutes for the next one, instead of over half an hour, unless he walked 10 minutes up the road to a stop that has a different bus. It's not the end of the world, but like I said, life was easier before this change.

    Sheffield Bus Partnership update

    Don't know if I'm reading this right but for bus 75 the 7.57am (woodseats stop) will be cancelled, so for kids using that bus for school in the morning if they miss the earlier bus they now have a 35 minute wait???
  10. Been having bit of problems recently not getting network on our phone and internet, spoke to some people in a nearby office they are having same issues. Any idea what's causing this?

    School trips and cost

    Actually I find your patronising manner very objectionable. You don't seem to get the point that for my family £12.50 is a lot of money, and this being one of many trips and activities we are asked to pay for,. It all adds up when you have a few kids. Anyway I like to come on the forum to whinge about things, I don't need people like you telling me what I should or shouldn't do, "why not just politely decline" etc etc, now please take your lectures elsewhere.

    School trips and cost

    To me it's a lot of money for a day trip down the road, other parents in the school happens to agree, I don't care for your patronising tone.

    School trips and cost

    I'm aware of how much things cost, thanks.

    School trips and cost

    I feel that sometimes people assume because you are not on benefits then you must have extra cash for school trips and other school activities. Having said that £55 isn't bad for an overnight trip. My daughter's infant school asked for a contribution of £12.50 for a day trip to a farm. The farm is 10 minutes away.
