Personally - I like to be prepared. You never quite know when winter is going to hit with a vengeance – so for me, winter preparation starts now.
job on the list is to make sure the raincover is up to the job. Nothing worse
than getting caught in a shower, only to find your raincover has a hole, a leak
or a split. So unstick it from the bottom of your basket, peel it apart and
check it over – if it is damaged, get a new one there are lots of universal ones on the market now if you can't afford the manufacturers specific one - It’s an essential.
This winter is said to be a cold one, so next on the list is a footmuff. I have a lovely fleece lined job, that should stand up to most weathers, so it’s had a whizz through the washing machine and is ready to go.
If you live in a rural area like me, you might already know about snow wheels. If not – you might want to find out about them – reports predict record snowfall this year! Snow wheels are designed not to swivel, allowing you to glide over slippery surfaces, and have heavy profiling for extra grip. Mine have come out of hibernation and are ready for action should the snow materialise. You can get some great bargains in the Pushchair Expert online shop - and if your a VIP member use your discount code!!
So that’s the pushchair covered, but what about me? I have invested in a new waterproof, fleece lined coat ready for winter (I like it so much I almost want the weather to be awful just so I can wear it) and am also dusting off my Mummy mitts – clever little gloves that attach to the pram handle, allowing you the convenience of being able to remove your hands while the mittens stay attached. I am also braving the shed and digging out my wellie boots in preparation for the rain and the snow.
This year I WILL be prepared. I will NOT open the door one morning to discover a foot of snow while my pushchair still has a sunshade on and my wellies are nowhere to be found. That’s my resolution, and I’m sticking to it.
I’m winter ready – are you? Or is it too soon to be thinking about snow and ice? Do you dust off your old faithful accessories every year or do you treat your pram to a makeover at the end of the autumn?Author:- Kate Fever from Family Fever
