When should I change my car tyres

When should I change my car tyres

Last Monday when I got Autumn and I home from swimming, I assessed my car tyres before I got my things out. “Hmm, the front nearside tyre’s tread is getting a bit worn” I thought to myself.

When I was little, I remember my Dad regularly checking the tyres on his car and showing me how to check them using a 20p coin. However, I realise that a lot of people out there probably have several questions buzzing around their minds when it comes to tyres: “How often should I check my tyres?”, “How do I check that my tyres aren’t too worn?”, “Can I prevent my tyres from getting worn so quickly?” and “What are the dangers of driving with worn tyres?”

With many parents reading my blog, I wonder how many busy mums and dads are reading this thinking “Oh, I’m so busy! I don’t even remember the last time I checked my tyres”. However, it is so important for the safety of you and your child/ren! Sponsored by Point S, today I’m sharing the importance of having the correct tread on your tyres as well as a few tips!

Our Sleep Routine – World Sleep Day

Our Sleep Routine – World Sleep Day

I love sleep, don’t you? Unfortunately, it’s something that most new parents are lacking in – unless you’re one of the lucky few! As it’s World Sleep Day today, I thought I’d discuss our sleep routine with 6 month old Autumn with you.

Once we got back from the hospital after her¬†operation, we started a sleep routine (she was 6 weeks old then). From what I’ve heard, it doesn’t sound like sleep routines work with all babies and each person/couple has to tailor it to their needs. However, this is what we do: View Post
