Coincidentally, here in the UK, Road Safety Week runs from November 18th to November 24th. Who knew?

The week, organised by ‘Brake’, a road safety charity, is an annual event and the biggest road safety awareness event in the UK. This year’s theme apparently, is ‘Step Up For Safe Streets’ and actually, the website looks really informative and interesting.

Ghosts and Gouls

It’s All Hallow’s Eve and there is great excitement in our house.

We have had two days of pumpkin carving, costumes bought, soup made, and the obligatory visit to the local farm for Instagram purposes done and dusted.

I love this time of year. Three of my babies are Autumn born, so it’s a busy few weeks, and memory evoking of cuddling up in front of a roaring fire with a newborn in arms.

With the clocks going back an hour last weekend, the evenings are drawing in much earlier, and although we all carry a personal alarm all year round, as way of routine now, I am even more vigilant during the colder months.

Trick or Treating is becoming more popular and a bigger event in the UK each year, and I instil our safety tips in my girls, so thought, while sitting here with my spiced latte, watching my youngest make her first Pumpkin Pie, I’d share them with you ahead of tomorrow night.

Stay in groups (no wandering off alone)
Costumes should be flame resistant
Always carry a personal alarm
Remember to look both ways when crossing the street
Examine all treats before eating

Stay on the pavements when possible
Avoid dark houses
Flashlights to see the way, and glow sticks to make children more visible
Enjoy!

Child Locators Are Not Just For Kids

child-locators-not-just-for-kids.alt

I sold one of our fantastic child locators to a wonderful older lady yesterday.

She told me that her husband now suffered from dementia and was always wandering away from her when they were out shopping. She planned to sew the child locator into the seam of his jacket, so she could press the hand held unit for such occasions and locate him easily. What a lovely idea!

I love hearing personal stories like these, or different ways our safety products help people.  It reminded me of a fabulous review of our Mommy I’m Here Child locators, written on a wonderful blog, years ago.

I had never thought at the time of how useful it could be to parents of children with Asbergers or Autism, but since this article was published back in 2011, we have sold so many to such families. It’s one of my favourite reviews so rather than try describing it myself, and do it any injustice, I shall let you read it here…

revolutionary device designed to keep children from wandering could benefit families of children with autism
