Summer Car Care: Travelling with a baby

So in the last week Freya was 9 months old and in her short lifetime so far, we’ve been on two what I would deem as considerable road trips. One was a trip to Scotland for my grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary which was definitely the biggie of the two, and the other was for our first family holiday in the Lincolnshire Wolds.

On both occasions, Bob has been completely on top of car care as you can imagine as a first time parent and wanted to minimise any potential hazards especially if it was as a result of poor car maintenance. I don’t have a picture of either of our motor vehicles I’m afraid but instead here’s an amazing picture of my daughter in her car. I’ve included some top tips in this post for ensuring a well maintained motor vehicle.

When is The Best Time to Remodel Your House?

In recent years, there has been a shift away from people moving to bigger or better houses and deciding instead to remodel their existing home. There are many benefits to doing this; one is that you don’t have the upheaval of moving, and the other is that you can remodel the house to suit however you like it.

Do You Need to Remodel?
