Lisa added: “On days I’m working in particular, I don’t have a spare hour while they pull up one sock.

“So the best piece of advice I’ve been given is to dress your kids the night before in the clothes you want them to go out in.”

In the morning, she simply wakes her kids up, changes their nappy and puts on the shoes. She said: “It works wonders for me and where I’m at in life at the moment.”

Lisa also recommends taking advantage of online supermarket delivery to save the hassle of shopping with two young children and to leave the weekend for quality family time.

Lisa also said one her daughters has become attached and struggled to go to nursery. She said by printing out words with pictures of both the morning and evening routine it can help the little one preempt what’s coming up when she’s starting to feel anxious.

She urged parents to not compare themselves with other mums and dads, admitting at one stage she wouldn’t go out because she thought she couldn’t control her daughters and felt embarrassed.

She said: “We all have our own pace and ways of coping, but I got over it and learned how to diffuse the situation.”

GMP has issued a warning to drivers after someone was spotted trying to make their way through flood water.

They released a still from CCTV footage which appears to show the motorist stranded in water.

GMP Trafford North shared a photo of the stranded car on the B5158 ‘Mile Road’ between Carrington and Flixton, taken this morning, Thursday January 21st.

It appears to show two figures emerging from the vehicle to wade through the water to dry land after getting caught out.

The road was shut today due to flood water from the nearby River Mersey, which rose to dangerously high levels yesterday following torrential rain from Storm Christoph.

This meant drivers had to take a longer route, via the M60, if they wanted to travel between Carrington and Flixton.

The police took to Facebook to share their warning to motorists who might consider ignoring the closure. They said: “We’ve received reports of people moving road closure signage and attempting to drive through standing water

“Road closures are in place to keep you safe, please observe them and don’t end up stranded like this person did.”

And people were quick to call out the driver for their ‘stupidity’ when it comes to trying to save time on their journey.

Bernadette wrote: “Rescue them and charge them double just stupidity”, while Dafydd added: “Let them do it then leave them to rescue themselves. The price for stupidity”.

Amanda said: “I’d leave them there! I live in Carrington and work 5mins away in Flixton, it didn’t take that long to go round”.

An Asda delivery driver has gone viral after being picturing delivering food in a snow storm.

Many people are relying on grocery shops via delivery during lockdown, and this driver has definitely gone the extra mile (well, technically a quarter of a mile). 

Sharing the news on Facebook, Asda wrote: “We’re really proud of home shopping driver Paul from our Keighley store who battled through the snow and walked a quarter of a mile to ensure his delivery made it to a farm.”

The customer’s neighbour, Phill Andrew shared the pictures on Facebook writing ‘top marks to the Asda delivery driver who got stuck outside our house today’. 

He continued: “Well done for going the extra mile, {well quarter mile.} Ensuring delivery got to its destination at the farm.”

Driver Paul works at the Keighley store, where Nigel Tyne-Miller the home shopping section leader called him a hero. 

He said: “Drivers will always try their best, but that’s going above and beyond to ensure your customer gets their order. To go so far down a snow-covered farm track is something else, and the pictures say it all. You can see Paul’s got his head down and battling through the snow.

“We’re all really proud of him. All our delivery drivers deserve applause – not just in Keighley but all over – because they really were terrible conditions yesterday.

“I’m sure the customer couldn’t believe it when he turned up in that weather. I’ve heard a few stories today from drivers saying customers were amazed to see them and had just assumed they wouldn’t be able to get out and make their deliveries.

“But we’ve got elderly and vulnerable customers and with the lockdown we know customers are relying on us so we’ll always do our very best to make sure they get what they need.

“I’m sure he’s not the only one who’s gone so far out of his way to make a delivery – there will be drivers in other stores doing similar things, as it’s what we do. There were a few cancelled orders yesterday, as unfortunately it’s unavoidable in that weather, but we did our best to keep it to a minimum.

“There have been some great examples of everyone mucking in together too. One of our drivers had to dig out a driver for another supermarket who’d got stuck and once they were clear they pulled over and helped our driver so he didn’t get stuck.”

Asda chief operating officer Anthony Hemmerdinger posted on Instagram to thank Paul for his amazing efforts, saying: “This is one of many examples of our teams going the extra mile today.”

What a man!

Nurses ‘in tears’ after group of friends send huge stack of pizzas to hospital anonymously

The friends sent the pizza to staff at their local critical care unit

A group of friends chipped in to order a load of pizzas to nurses working on a critical care unit, in a fantastic act of kindness.

One of the nurses who received the food said she was ‘lost for words’, after some anonymous good Samaritans ordered a huge takeaway for staff at their local hospital.

Critical care nurse Tina Waltho tweeted a photo of the pizza boxes, which turned up this week at the Royal Stoke University Hospital.

Staff were surprised when a takeaway driver dropped off six pizzas – margherita, pepperoni, meat feast, chicken, BBQ and veggie – as well as two garlic breads from an ‘unknown source’.

The pizzas had been sent by a group of close friends, who had dipped into their own pockets to spread some cheer to under-pressure and hungry NHS workers.

Tina said: “At a time when healthcare staff feel so low and deflated, responses like this remind us that we are supported.”

She added in a later tweet: “The nurse who had been in charge on the day shift was in tears. She had barely eaten all day and was a little emotional. It really has reported our faith in humans”. 

The tweet received a lot of praise, with thousands of retweets and likes, and some people even saying they would copy their example and make a similar gesture.

One person wrote: “What an amazing gesture. The next generation make me proud.”

While the group of friends remain anonymous, nurses did discover that the pizzas came from a takeaway based in Stone, Staffordshire.

*An earlier version of this article said the pizza was sent by a group of sixth form students, this has been corrected.
