Getting Winter Ready

With all this bad weather we're having at the moment, it makes me realise just how unprepared I am for it. Thankfully we are not completely unprepared, we have a snow shovel and gritting salt, but they're not always easy to find in a garage that's over flowing with so many other things. Every time we get snow I say we need to be more prepared. But by time we get round to doing anything about it the snow has gone and we forget we need to get organised and move onto something else. But we are now on day 6 of snow and are set for more next week.

It's crazy how everything comes to a stop the moment we get a bit of snow, when other counties cope with it for weeks and months on end. But that's just it we don't have it for very long so never feel the need to put measures in place to cope with it. I'm certainly not about to go out and buy new winter tyres, as no doubt we'll have spring type weather in a couple of weeks, that's just how it is here in the UK.

Family Day Out: Yeadon Tarn

For a while now we've talked about getting out as a family to go on walks and see some of our beautiful surroundings. Neither Keith or I are from Yorkshire, so there's plenty to discover and it's so important to take time out to just be and spend time as a family. Our little boy Tommy loves being outside and the fresh air really gives me a new lease of life.

The Secrets Of Gym-Haters To Stay In Shape

Even though it has become a popular meeting venue for everyone and their dog, it doesn’t mean that you have to love the gym. In fact, for a lot of people, the gym is nothing else than an unhygienic waste of time. It’s easy to understand why. After all, not all gyms are kept as spotless as they should, and there is no joy in holding the sweaty hand bar on the treadmill while wondering how many hands have held it before you today. Not every gym member brings a towel to keep the equipment clean and dry, so it can be really unpleasant to use a machine right after them. Additionally, when you’re trying to get back in shape, there’s nothing more frustrating than jogging next to super fit individuals which make you feel bad about yourself just by looking at them. Naturally, it would be unfair to forget the membership fees, which can be extortionately high with some gym studios. In other words, you shouldn’t feel awkward about hating the gym. The right gym can be great depending on your personality, but there are a lot of bad gym facilities that give a terrible rep to the venue. Don’t worry, though. You don’t have to sign up to your local gym to stay fit. There are plenty of alternatives for gym-haters.

Tidy Tips For Home Organisation

It’s not always easy to consider exactly how to upgrade your home. Maybe that new smart home fixture would do the job, or knocking a wall through. It might be that switching up bedrooms, installing new windows, and changing the entire colour scheme could help. It might be that purchasing new sofas, new tables, new ovens and refrigerators might solve the issues you’ve believe yourself to be facing.

Alternatively, it could just be that your home needs tidying. Everyone has different perceptions around what constitutes ‘tidy,’ but these opinions mean little compared to what is tidy in reality. A tidy home is clean, hygienic, and polished. It means everything has a place and there is a place for everything. Ideally, it means that similar items are situated in similar areas, and that there’s a decent cohesive philosophy behind where you store things.

The following tips can also give you a great and easy time keeping on top of your home organization and tidiness:
