Not Enough Room in the Space

April 17, 2016


How are your parking skills?


There are many things I like to compare between living in the #USA and living in the #UK.  One thing that is definitely not good in the UK is the size of the #parking spaces. 


Today I faced a real challenge when I went out with our one month old son and parked in a space with no #cars either side (the #family #parking area always seems to be full!).  The only issue seemed to be the lengthy walk to the #ticket machine and #store, which didn’t bother me.


When I returned to our car more people had arrived and there were few free spaces and of course my car was sandwiched.  I could not get the #baby’s car seat in, it was impossible!  So what does someone do in this situation?  Balance the baby on the roof, ask a stranger to watch their child while reversing the car, or put the child in the boot while they reverse?  Of course none of these are a good idea.


I ended up dropping the back seat, and skillfully maneuvering the car seat through the boot and into place, and this made me think, either there needs to be more #family #parking, larger spaces in general or I should use the #bus which I am sure will inspire a #blog post one day!
