Looking for ways to get more vegetables into your diet? This recipe for vegetable scones will tick that box. I have adapted the recipe from 10-a-day the easy way.
In November we will be spending time in the UK with the kids and our grandchild. This necessitates the hire of a suitable car, and a car seat. Then last month, Carli and I got into a discussion about car seats. Hannah has nearly outgrown her infant seat and it was time to buy her a new one. There are hundreds on the market and it is daunting to have to make a choice. Do you go for the one with an attached isofix base? Or one that has it separately? Then there is the issue of rearward facing and front facing. And not to forget that not all cars have the isofix system. What about ones that you can use from 0kg’s to 36kgs? Or do you buy them as the child grows? Can you see how confusing this can all get.
When I looked at how much it was going to cost us to hire a car seat I made the offer of paying half for the one they buy here. The only proviso is that it comes with to the UK. Between what we would have spent and what the kids would spend, we have paid for the car seat. After much looking, discussion and emailing, Carli chose a car seat she liked. We met them at the baby shop at took a closer look. I like the fact that it swivels as it is so much easier to get the baby out the seat if it is facing you. The seat can be rearward or forward facing. It can be used with or without isofix and the base is part of the chair. And the added bonus is this is the only seat Hannah will need.
