Many people will be looking forward to getting away – hopefully to warmer climes – over next weekend. Couple of useful tips:

  • Please don’t tell everyone on social media that your house is going to be empty. It’s an invitation to thieves. Post the photos when you get back.
  • Leave your central heating ticking over @ 15C minimum as this will prevent your water pipes from freezing and you coming home to a wet home
  • If you are driving any distance with passengers and luggage, allow extra distance for stopping and slow down for corners, especially if you’re used to driving on your own with a light load. Also make sure your tyre pressures are adjusted to suit your load.

Enjoy your break but just take those few precautions to keep it a happy time.
