...and get just a little bit more out of your life!

Wow.

 

A Freedom of Information request to the Warwick District Council by the Coventry Telegraph has revealed that over 50 roads in the county have over 2 potholes each.

 

That’s two too many potholes you’d want to drive over within the same road, isn’t it?

 

And one of those roads happens to be a five minute walk from us - Radford Road, in Leamington.

And that got us thinking.

Too many potholes can make you potty

Meeting too many potholes can make your entire day unpleasant, as unpleasant as...umm...

...two giant unpleasant things.

 

And we’re not just talking about the road.

 

There are way too many situations in our daily lives, where potholes - real and metaphorical - ruin what would otherwise have been a charming evening...or morning...or afternoon...you get the idea.

And that’s why we’ve decided to reveal the 5 most common potholes you can avoid in your life, making it just a little bit better (your life, that is, not the pothole).

Those elusive car keys

 - “Have you got the car keys?”

 - “I thought you had them?”

 - “I thought you had them?”

 

Those damn car keys!

You really need to keep an eye on these pesky little things.
You really need to keep an eye on these pesky little things.

Somehow, they always seem to slip out of sight right when you’re all dressed and ready to go out.

Of course, they’re always in sight when you’re searching for your glasses, the phone, your wallet...am I right?

 

The Car Key Search can prove just as unpleasant a pothole as driving over a road riddled with actual potholes.

Deciding what movies to watch on Movie Night

It’s movie night.

Order a pizza? - check.

Couch comfy? - check.

Internet connection clear? - check.

So, you start looking.

 

You shuffle through trending movies on Netflix...somehow, none of them look good to you.

Then you start looking up movies on imdb, reading through plot synopses and sifting through the cast...nothing seems to click.

Then, when you finally find one that you want to watch, it’s almost midnight, you’ve munched through your pizza, and The Land of Dreams beckons.

Our movie night solution

Decide the day before Movie Night what movie you want to watch, and if possible, download it onto your computer.

Your little companion trying to wake you early on your day off

It’s your day off.

You’ve remembered to NOT set the alarm.

It’s early morning, and you’re in a deep, content, and highly satisfying snooze.

 

And then this happens…

Pawlease can we go to the park?
Pawlease can we go to the park?

You can’t exactly disregard that little face...neither do you want to give up on your extra long snooze.

Our solution to the dilemma

Pull your companion into bed with you.

Now, both of you can S.I.P. (if you can’t guess what the ‘S’ stands for, it rhymes with ‘deep’).

Driving over them can be absolute torture.
