Since I started blogging at the beginning of last year, we’ve certainly racked up more miles than usual! From blogging events to family holidays, we’re spending more time in the car than ever before. Of course, having a baby/toddler has changed the way we travel. We have to pack so much more to prepare for every eventuality! We also find ourselves stopping at services far more often. However, there are things that make the journey much easier! View Post
When I was pregnant with Autumn I researched everything I could think of that I might need to know about parenting. Once she was born, it turned out there was a LOT I hadn’t thought of! However, one thing I had looked into a great deal was car seats. I’d read a lot about the benefits of extended rear-facing and was determined to keep her in a rear-facing car seat for at long as possible. Over the last few months, we’ve been trying out the Axkid Minikid. View Post
Working from home is becoming increasingly common. We live in an age of technology where it is easy to work wherever we are and stay in touch with our colleagues all around the world. I personally do a lot of working from home in my day job as a Software QA Specialist. Whilst working from home has many pros, there are some cons to it too.
When Autumn turned 15 months old in January, we knew it was time for her to move out of her first car seat as she had reached its limit. From research I’d done when I was pregnant, I knew that I wanted her to be rear-facing for as long as possible. UK regulations now state that you must have your child in a rear-facing car seat until they’re 15 months. However, whether they change to forward-facing or not after that is your decision. I personally decided I want to keep her rear-facing as long as possible as, after scouring the internet reading numerous blogs and articles, I feel it is safer. View Post
It’s important to keep your car in good condition, for obvious reasons. You hold responsibility for making sure that you and your passengers are kept as safe as possible. As such, it’s important to do regular checks and servicing on your car as necessary, not just worrying about it when an MOT is due! Besides, if you don’t keep your car running as happily as possible, it’s likely to cause you more money in the long run. View Post
