I pulled her little trousers down a bit and the nurse gave her two injections in one thigh then the Meningitis B vaccine in the other. She just screamed like a banshee. Worse than the other two previous occasions.Bless her, tears rolling down her face, hugging tightly into my chest. It made me feel sick. At least it’s over now until she’s 1 year old, where the polite nurse informed me there’s 4 injections!
To celebrate Father’s Day coming up on the 19th June I am writing this post dedicated to my dad and my driving experiences with him.
Anyway my dad got lots of best driving badges which he say’s makes him a better driver on the roads today. Driving a lorry gave him much more road experiences. Especially when it comes to spatial awareness. Driving lorries down country lanes makes you so much more aware of what is around you.
When I’m out in the car with dad his judgement is excellent. He is really good at negotiating when trying to get past parked cars or finding that space you don’t think exists!
Driving with my dad is fun.
He always gives a running commentary. Especially when we are pottering around our local area. He likes to tell me things like when he was a boy our local hospital was just a large green field. Or this road used to be a horse and cart road and over there used to be a farm that I used to pick up milk from.
I love these times together.
One thing that my dad is very serious about is tyre safety. He always checks my husband’s tyres on his car when we go round there as he does a lot of miles for work. Its a running joke now!
I have to agree with him. Tyre safety is so important nowadays and I know when you are driving your kids around you want to be in a car that’s safe and roadworthy.
If you are looking to replace your tyres why not try Point-S. They sell top branded tyres at the best prices online through their booking system, and get them delivered to your nearest fitting centre.

Somehow everyone forgets to tell the ‘newbie’!
Oh and not forgetting you must not sit in ‘Barry’s’ seat at all costs. Not if you don’t want to be given the worst tasks for the day and that look of annoyance that will make you cringe into the floor.
Who hates Monday’s?
I think we all get ‘that’ Monday feeling starting on a Sunday night.
The thought of having to get up and head off to work knowing it’s 5 whole days of this until the weekend.
I know I used to rather go to work any day but Monday’s. There is something about Monday’s that gives you that feeling of dread and despair.
My husband and I call it ‘that dreaded Monday feeling’
Don’t we all want that feeling when you turn up to that lush comfy chair where you can start your morning jobs its like feeling at home? Especially if you do work at home! If you want that kind of fantastic chair, look over at Furniture@Work which I’m sure you would be able to find the one for your office. Whether it’s your home office or workplace station.

My eyes are a deep chocolate brown shade, but my husband’s are light blue like the sea. I have always thought brown eyes are a more dominant gene.This got me thinking, so I have decided to do some research into baby eye colours.
I asked my friend about her little boy’s eye colour when he was born as he has deep brown eyes now, and she said his was blue when he was born.OK still hope for my little girl to have my eye colouring. At six months old she said his eyes went brown after being grey for 3 months.
Really, I said to her, so they do change colour it’s not a myth then?
She must have thought I was a bit stupid.
As a first time mum unless you read up on stuff like this in books or on Google you really don’t have a clue.Where do you find the time to do that as a new mummy?
I’m sure most new mum’s like me are up to their ears in nappy changes, feeding, sterilising, clothes washing and the constant tidying up.
Whilst I came up with this idea for a post I thought I had better look up baby’s eye colours and see what exactly happens.Will my husband win the blue eye battle or me with brown eyes?
What are the odds?
I started reading lots of different articles about babies eye colours and they can also have neither of the parents eye colours but can inherit a grandparent’s colouring.Well this has put a cat amongst the pigeons so to speak as my dad’s eyes are a greeny colour!
So that has just thrown another angle into the “discussion”.
So I have discovered that something called melanin is responsible for the colour of the iris and the amount that is present, has something to do with the genes that the baby has.When the baby arrives into the outside world the melanin production in the eyes is kickstarted by the bright light. A small increase in melanin means the eye colour will stay blue. A larger increase produces darker colours like brown.
