About Me

My name is Frances Rose Agnes Napper aka SmileyRose. I am a friendly and fun loving individual. I like meeting new/old friends. Although I love being with friends, I also enjoy my own space from time to time. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs, going to the theatre, travel (visiting new and exciting places), reading, films and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I particularly enjoy it when we all get together. I was a full-time mother for both of my daughters and I did not go back to work until they both reached primary school age. The UK has a lot to offer because there are so many picturesque places to visit. I particularly enjoy the British countryside. My home town was in Stamford, Lincolnshire although I am currently living in Peterborough. My Father was a serving member of the RAF. I'd consider myself well travelled from a very early age (6 months old). Divorced - for 10yrs. Currently single. I am interested in meeting nice folk only. :) Star sign - Leo the Lion. Birthday -July 29th. That's me in a nutshell. :)

Driving In The Snow 😊

I was not entirely sure, so i had to look it up!

Driving in the snow can be a seriously tricky task, and millions across the UK are having to deal with it this week as wintry conditions plague the country.

The Met Office have issued yellow, amber and even some red weather warnings thanks to the snowstorm that has struck the country over the last couple of days.

When we reach the red warning, we can expect, ‘widespread damage, travel and power disruption and risk to life is likely.’

Getting in your car in these conditions can be extremely dangerous, so it is important to drive as safely as possible.

What gear should you use in the snow?

Advice from the RAC says that you should try and move off in second gear and change up to a higher gear as soon as possible once the car is moving.

However, acceleration should be done gently, smoothly and using low revs.

Ideally, changing gear should be avoided as much as possible, so as you are approaching an uphill, leave as much room in front as possible so you can keep a steady speed and not have to touch the gear stick.

When should I use a low gear?

To avoid braking, use a lower gear when you are going downhill as using the brakes can cause you to lose grip.

Any gear changing should be done with the utmost care, trying to keep changes smooth and slow.

Remember, when driving in the snow you need to leave much more distance between you and the car in front – as much as 10 times more than you usually would.
