Thought I would try here, as you never know who might be reading!
I am in a 2 bed flat in Little Chalfont, it's in a lovely, quiet area of mainly older residents. It has parking, quiet communal gardens, own washing line, and new central heating. I am looking for someone who has a 3 bed house (or even a large 2 bed where a room could be split!) and wants to downsize and swap with me. I love the area I'm in, and the flat, but with two children aged 5 and 13, it would be really nice if they could have their own rooms.
I have tried all the normal homeswapper routes, websites etc, but I thought I would try here in case anyone knows of perhaps an older person who wants to downsize but doesn't have access to the internet or even know about swapping!
Thanks for reading!

I've been happily accessing the forum on my Android phone - until yesterday. Now it comes up with an error message:
[#10339] The topic filter settings you submitted are not valid. Please go back and reset your topic filter settings.
With the full version I can go no further. With the mobile version I can get in but only by clicking on the icon with four squares.
I'm not aware of ever having set any filters and I can't find any way of resetting them. The help files are no help.
The below sounds a potentially nasty incident

I am looking for a reliable and caring nanny/babysitter to watch my lively 18 month old. I am looking for 1-2 days at the moment, specifically every Monday morning for a max of 3 hours, plus some ad hoc evenings if possible. Please inbox me for more details or if you wish to ask me any questions.
About to put our house in Amersham on the market and wondering which estate agent(s) to use. Does anyone have any experience good or bad please?
Anyone got any ideas what this shape could be at the end of Copperkilns lane? Is it a natural feature or could it be evidence of past human activity? Eg a camp or some sort of fortification at the top of the valley there.Attached Thumbnails
