Get prepared for the Weather bomb!

You may or may not have heard of a storm that is hitting the UK this week, these adverse weather conditions has been coined with being named “The Weather Bomb”.

The met office have issued a number of yellow & amber warnings, with freezing winds expecting to peak, with snow on higher ground.

Here at Soak&Sleep we want everyone to keep warm, safe, and to take care of our loved ones and neighbours. So here’s a little check list of what to make sure you have…

Candles & torches –If your house is located anywhere like I live, the moment the weather turns, the power is first to go. Goodbye hot water, warm radiators, food and that anticipated Apprentice episode – therefore make sure there is a large supply of candles & torches

Easy Dinner – tins of beans, cereal bars, bags of crisps, bars of chocolate, yes it may not be part of your diet, but you’ll need some little treats to keep you smiling 🙂

Board Games – The powers gone, or you would just rather not venture outside, grab those board games that are gathering dust, and snuggle down with your family and play into the night. Monopoly by candle night will be so much fun you’ll wonder why you don’t do it every week!

Make sparks – stock up on wood, kindle, and newspaper and get a roaring fire going, and relax.

Cover up – grab all the duvets, blankets in the house, throw on a pair of pyjamas and make a den. Hide away with story books, chocolates, and if your lucky you won’t even hear the windows rattling
