Driving home for Christmas

22nd December 2019
Christmas is a time when families travel far and wide to meet up at Christmas, the presents are loaded in the car, everyone is feeling festive but is your car prepared to travel for the long journey. Before you drive:-
Recently I have been delivering leaflets promoting David Phillip Estate Agents to the residents of Bramhope, and as I walked around this lovely area in North Leeds I was impressed with the number of beautiful Christmas wreaths adorning many of the properties. We also attended the switching on of the Bramhope Christmas lights this year, which is a great yearly tradition for the residents of Bramhope too. This got me thinking about the Christmas traditions that we have not only in the UK but also around the world – here are a few.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year for families getting together and enjoying the festivities, however this can be quite a challenging and worrying time for people living with dementia, and their carers and relatives. For the 850,000 people living with dementia, Christmas can be a tiring and confusing time of year, routines are changed, more people are around the home, and mealtimes can be interrupted. It can also be a difficult time for carers or relatives who notice changes in their loved ones such as memory loss or confusion, but it can also be worrying for relatives making sure that their loved ones are having a good time too whilst also feeling involved. The Alzheimer’s society have provided tips on how to enjoy the festivities if you have someone staying with you over Christmas living with Dementia:-
Think Christmas is a quiet time for people looking to move home? - you may want to think again! When looking to sell a property, people often think that the New Year is the best time to market their property, and it really is an excellent time, however there is a definite advantage to looking to market your home before Christmas and the New Year rush . Christmas is a time when family and friends are together, plans are formed for the next year and buying a new home, looking for a new job or moving to an area with a good school catchment area may all be on the horizons
It’s that time of year when the Christmas trees go up, becoming the centrepiece of our family festivities. We will cover their branches with beautiful baubles, sparkling lights and gifts for friends and family lovingly wrapped underneath.
As the Met Office issues a weather warning and I needed to scrape the ice off my car this morning, I was thinking that at this time of year there is not much you can do about the outside temperature, but there are things you can do to keep warm inside, and more importantly take advantage  of some little practical tips to stop the heat escaping and prevent burst pipes.
Think Christmas is a quiet time for people looking to move? - think again. Every year Rightmove's traffic at least doubles between Christmas Day and Early January.
Considering a pre-Christmas house move? Then marketing your property in September could be the ideal time. Buyers see Christmas as a key-influencing factor with many people determined to be in their new home in time for the big day celebrations. With preparation and planning, and a race against time, you could be putting up your Christmas tree in your brand new home.

Pets can Enjoy Christmas too

12th December 2018
Getting busy for the festive fun? We mustn’t forget about our pets, as they are part of the family and can enjoy the festivities too. Whilst most of them like being pampered at Christmas when family and friends descend upon the home, it is important to try to keep them to as normal a routine as possible.
