How to Make Pancakes! so that it spreads evenly in the pan. Spoon some of the batter into the centre of the hot pan, and tip from side to side. The batter should take approximately 30 seconds to cook on one side. Gently lift the edges of the pancake to see if it’s golden. If it is, turn it on to the other side and leave it to cook as before.

Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) Falls on February 4th this Year! Kids love pancakes, and with Pancake Day approaching, now’s the perfect time to start practicing those flipping skills. Pancakes are simple and easy to make. All is required is: 4oz of plain flour sifted A pinch of salt, 2 eggs 7floz of milk 2oz of butter Once you have all the ingredients ready, put the flour into a bowl with the salt. Lightly beat together the egg and milk and mix in with the flour, making sure you only add a little of the egg and milk at at time. Whisk well until the batter is smooth and thick. Heat your frying pan on the highest setting and place a knob of butter on the pan and tip from side to side

Visit www.bedminstereye.co.uk

Now you’re ready for the fun part. Wiggle the pan to make sure the pancake is not sticking and gently toss the pancake and catch it so it lands in the pan. Instead of just having pancakes for pudding, why not make a meal of it and have pancakes for your main dinner and dessert? Melted cheese, bacon and tomato make for a yummy pancake filling or maybe try chicken in a creamy cheese sauce. A nice alternative to the traditional lemon and sugar filling is to have a banana and toffee filling with ice cream. Or melt some chocolate and peanut butter to make a tasty nutty filling.

Half Term Ideas Half Term comes quicker than Christmas these days, and there’s always the question of what you’ll do to occupy the kids for a whole week! Do not fear though as we’ve come up with a list of ideas for you to take inspiration from. HAVE A FILM DAY If it’s looking a bit glum outside, transform your living room into a cinema! Spend the day making popcorn holders and popcorn and pick a few films to watch. Draw the curtains, turn the lights out and let them get comfortable by placing all the cushions from your sofa on the floor. Stock up on some ice cream, sweets and soft drinks for in between the films and sit back, relax and joy all the pleasures a home cinema can bring. PIZZA PARTY Everybody loves pizza and it tastes even better when you’ve made it yourself. Head to the shops and buy some pizza bases, tomato puree and of course the cheese! Buy a selection of different pizza toppings both the usual (pepperoni, ham, pineapple, olives or mushrooms) and the unusual. Lay all your ingredients out on the table and get pizza making! Help them spread the tomato puree on the bases and let them go as crazy as they want with the toppings. Pop them

Visit www.bedminstereye.co.uk

in the oven and voila! There you have some yummy pizzas to feast on! Sounds delish. OUT AND ABOUT If the skies outside are blue then there is no excuse to get outside and embrace the good weather with a walk. The crisp February weather is the perfect time to roam the countryside or visit your local park and look for snowdrops in the woodland areas. Take some bird feed or frozen peas for the ducks (not bread as it’s bad for their diet), wrap up warm and enjoy a day out. LEISURE CENTRES AND LOCAL ACTIVITIES If you’d prefer to get them out of the house this half term why not get them to start a new hobby. Your local leisure centre will have special activities on during half term such as swimming days, rough and tumble days and other special sports clubs for your children to enjoy. Make the most of local stables too who may be holding special taster days for children who are interested in horse riding. If any of these ideas take their fancy, maybe they’ll be inspired to make it into a regular activity so by the time the next holiday of half term comes round they’ll be able to come up with their own ideas.

Driving in Heavy Rain Reduce your speed and leave space between your car and the car in front of you. Your brakes will be compromised with the wet and slippery roads.

Driving in heavy rain and flooding can be very hazardous. Breakdown companies are always busy during periods of wet weather, and report that there is an increase in customers complaining of problems with car engines and electrical systems especially in older vehicles. Many of these rain-related breakdowns are easily avoided if you follow some of our helpful steps you can take to reduce your chances of an accident or breakdown. BEFORE SETTING OFF Consider whether your journey is essential. If not, can you delay it a few hours once the rain has passed? Plan your journey in advance and take care to avoid areas which are notorious for flooding. Leave in plenty of time too, allowing time for slower speeds and potential congestion. Check that your windscreen wiper blades are in full working condition. Fill up your tank. The traffic is most likely to be very stop and start and you will probably use both your heaters and lights which will use more of your fuel. Make sure your mobile phone is fully charged before you head off just in case you come across any difficulties on your journey. ON THE ROAD Use dipped headlights so that other drivers can see you more easily, but try not to use your rear fog lights as they can mask your brake lights and can dazzle drivers behind you.

Visit www.bedminstereye.co.uk

Be wary of larger or fast moving vehicles as they can produce a lot of extra spray. Tune in to your local radio station as they will have regular updates on conditions and flooded areas to avoid. If you do happen to break down, keep your bonnet closed as the water may damage your electrical system. Avoid driving fast through deep water on the road as this can damage your breaks. Be considerate to other drivers. DRIVING IN FLOODED AREAS Do not attempt to drive through water if you are unsure of the depth or if it appears to be fast flowing as you could easily get swept away. If you do drive through water, drive on the highest, most visible section of the road. Drive steadily and slowly. Driving at speed will create difficulties for other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. Drive a safe distance from the vehicle in front. Test your brakes after driving through deep water. If your engine cuts out after driving through deep water, do not attempt to restart your engine. Instead call for assistance.
