For six months Nicole McLean lived a double life – sexy, dangerous jailbird in the stage show Chicago by night, wife and mother by day. She talks to reporter Sue Newman about the challenges of becoming an overnight star.

he’s sultry, she’s sexy and she’s oh so dangerous. To some she’s Nicole Weir the girl who grew up in Ashburton, to others she’s Nicole McLean the Arrowtown mum of three, but to anyone who saw the Showbiz Queenstown produc on of Chicago, Nicole will always be the foxy murderess Velma. That on-stage character, however, is as far away as you can get from the real Nicole, the woman who grew up and went to school in Ashburton, who trained as a language therapist, travelled, married Craig and became mum to Maddie, 13, Ollie, 9 and Jed, 5. And no one is more surprised than Nicole that she’s become the most instantly recognised face in the Central Lakes District. It’s a kind of fame that’s taking a bit of ge ng used to, Nicole says. “I s ll can’t believe I’m doing this. I’m just loving every moment of it,” she said, as the show entered the second week of its two-week season. Step back four years. Nicole and Craig were at a friend’s 40th birthday. The microphone wasn’t being used, and with a glass of bubbly or two on board, the couple decided to entertain. Craig played guitar and Nicole sang. “I just wanted to see what it sounded like singing with a microphone,” she said. The reac on from their friends was immediate. With a voice like that, they told Nicole, you should be singing in a band. And they had just the band with the most unlikely name – the Swamp Donkey. Was it an early midlife crisis or was it just the right opportunity at the right me? Nicole’s not sure but overnight she became the lead singer in a covers band playing the Arrowtown- Queenstown circuit.

naughty nights of glamour
cover story continued over page What was more surprising, however, was discovering she had a voice that anyone wanted to listen to, a voice that drew applause and a voice that got people up dancing. She’d always thought of herself as a dancer, learning classical ballet from an early age, ini ally while her family lived in Hong Kong and then in Ashburton from Charmaine Quaid. She was good, be er than good and progressed through the examina on syllabus receiving high grades at each level. She did the same with jazz dance and a er a 20 year break is now back in the studio studying another form of jazz dance. Nicole was no newcomer to the stage when she audi oned for Chicago, but it had been years since she’d been on the performers’ side of the footlights. While s ll at Ashburton College she was a member of the dance troupe of Variety Theatre’s Jesus Christ Superstar. She loved the show, loved learning about theatre but thought dance was as far as her involvement would ever go. If anyone is proof that life begins at 40 it’s Nicole McLean, for her turning 40 was more than just a date on the calendar. She restarted dance classes a er a break of 20 years, joined a band and took a chance on group singing lessons with singing teacher Margaret O’Hanlon, a New Yorker she describes as “the queen of musical theatre”. That decision changed her life. When she discovered Showbiz Queenstown had Chicago on its agenda for its next show, Nicole decided she’d audi on as a dancer. “I knew for that show they wouldn’t be looking for really young dancers, that they’d want people with a more worldly look. I went along to the pre-audi on workshop in November thinking I’d audi on for the ensemble but two or three weeks before the audi on, Margaret said she thought I should go for Velma. She gave me the courage and the confidence to do it.” Nicole spent hours preparing for her audi on. She decided to sing the opening number from the show All that Jazz and had choreographed her own dance rou ne to accompany it to prove she could sing and dance at the same me. Things didn’t quite go to plan. “I was quite calm when I got in there. Then I found they only wanted to hear my voice, but as soon as I started signing I knew it was going really well.” She was called back for a dance audi on that same a ernoon and was later caught with a trolley full of groceries in the supermarket when the call-back came for a second audi on. “When I knew I had Velma I was overwhelmed. I couldn’t quite believe it because there were more than 70 people at the audi on and 23 of those were audi oning for Velma or Roxy.” That was the beginning of a rehearsal schedule that was, at best, demanding. Without an unNicole transformed – mum by day, tough, dangerous prisoner by night.

derstanding husband, children who were happy to accommodate mum disappearing at tea me and parents who could drop tools from me to me to give Craig a break, Nicole said making it to opening night would have been impossible. “Poor Craig, most nights during rehearsals I just walked out at the crazy me, at 6.30.” Her children have lived the show for months, being the willing and some mes unwilling, audience as she rehearsed songs and dance rou nes, but she admits they’re also proud of what she’s achieved. If Nicole had any doubts about her talent, these were dispelled by the show’s director, Court Theatre’s Bryan Aitken. “We were in the middle of the cell block scene one night and he stopped and said to me ‘where have you been...’” Where Nicole had been for the past 20 years was studying, travelling and working in her 20s, raising children in her 30s. Her 40s, she said, are her me. With a two-week season for the show, Nicole focused solely on being Velma. Mum and dad, Eleanor and Eric Weir became grandparents in charge and taking every opportunity to see the show – again and again. They’ve been part of the hype that has seen their daughter become instantly recognised on the street, they’ve seen her face gazing at them from billboards and they’ve watched her become someone else on stage. And they’re more than proud, Eleanor says. Modestly, Nicole describes the show as “a great experience”. With Chicago wrapped up, she’s not sure where her career in musical theatre will take her. She’s back in the dance studio, preparing for an examina on and back at voice lessons. She’s superfit and says rehearsing and performing for the past five months has been like training for, then running, a marathon. Securing her first starring role in a musical in her 40s has taught Nicole a lesson she’s quickly passed on to her daughter. “Maddie is learning ballet and she sings beau fully. I’ve said to her, don’t leave it un l you’re 40 to do something like this.” And why did she choose now to step back out on stage? It was the right show at the right me. “There is something about Chicago, it’s the ul mate musical for a singer-dancer. Yes, I wish I’d done this sooner, but now it’s me.” For five months she’s made the daily transion from mum to jailbird and back, but it’s now me to banish Velma to the memory banks and become Nicole again, she said. Post show, there’s an element of let-down a er the focus and excitement of starring in a hit musical, of seeing your face on billboards around town, but Nicole is enjoying being able to spend me with her children without other demands on her me – for now. As far from foxy murderess as it’s possible to get, Nicole Mclean with the loves of her life, her family, Ollie, 9, Maddie 13, husband Craig and fiveyear-old Jed.
Having a baby is one of life’s most exciting and challenging experiences. For most people it also adds a few extra centimetres to the waistline which can be difficult to shift. Erin Tasker reports.
mummy tummy F
ive months a er having a baby, I am the lightest I have been in 10 years. I can hear women around the world swearing at me right now. When I last braved the scales I was 8kg down on my pre-pregnancy weight. I know I am one of the lucky ones. Women struggle every day to lose the weight they put on during pregnancy. At a me when their sole focus should be their new wee person, many are distracted and disheartened by what they see in the mirror. It’s not easy. So what’s the secret? There is no one answer, every woman is diﬀerent. I barely put on 10kg while pregnant and when I jumped on the scales 10 days a er Riley was born I had already lost 10kg. What I would have given in days gone by to magically lose 10kg in 10 days and it turned out all I had to do was have a baby! It was a lot to lose but it was clear looking in the mirror, there was plenty more to lose. Riley needed to be my sole focus though, so I didn’t stress about it. There was li le me to think about it anyway with all the learning that had to be done about how to be a mum. Riley (weighing in at 8lb 14oz) arrived via emergency caesarean two days before Christmas – the wee bugger just didn’t want to come out. That meant recovery me and even if I wanted to go and run a marathon to shed some kilos, I
couldn’t. I was limited with what I could do for the first six weeks. You’re not allowed to drive a er a caesarean, hang out washing or even vacuum. There’s only so much being housebound one can handle though, so eventually it was me to test the water and get outside. I started slowly – a short walk to the shop around the corner, building to a walk into town. Once I was fully mobile again, I tried to go for walks as o en as I could – made easier by the fact Riley was a summer baby and the weather was mostly beau ful. A er about 10 weeks, I started back at the gym. Going to Curves for a 30-minute work-out three or four mes a week not only helped regain fitness, but it also helped with my sanity. Ge ng out of the house and some me to yourself is something every mother needs, but it’s not always easy. Ge ng to a gym just isn’t a realis c goal for some. Not everyone has reliable, willing and flexible babysi ers. I o en wonder how on earth solo mums manage, par cularly if they don’t have any family around. I’d be lost without my husband, parents and in-laws. I’m one of the lucky ones in so many respects. Riley is a cool wee dude, but his one issue has been day sleeping. He goes through phases of not wan ng to sleep in his cot during the day. It’s frustra ng and we persevere with rese ling, but if it doesn’t work, we walk and he sleeps. If it’s late a ernoon and you see us out pounding the pavements, you’ll know we’ve had a day where sleep wasn’t our friend. Even when I don’t feel like a walk, we go. At least it means he’s ge ng some sleep, and at the same me it’s helping to work oﬀ all the bad food I’ve typically snacked on during the day. I may have lost weight, but I’m not exactly a poster girl for post-baby nutri on and I do worry what’s going to happen once I finish breas eeding. They say that breas eeding helps you lose weight and although that’s not the case for everyone, I think that’s been the key for me. It’s so easy when you’re feeding baby, to
feed yourself. You’ll rarely see our cupboards without chocolate in them. If I was to improve my diet right now, I know I’d lose more weight. Being a mum can be stressful though, and chocolate helps calm the nerves. That’s my excuse anyway. At least I have the exercise part in hand. I walk, I go to the gym when Nan’s available during the day, or a er husband Logan gets home from work, and I’ve got the treadmill, Zumba DVDs and the Nintendo Wii at home for those a ernoons when Riley decides to have a sleep. I really don’t have any excuses. Recently I wiped the dust oﬀ the Wii Fit board and jumped on. It had been a good two or three years since I last used it and according to the body test, I’d lost 11.6kg since my last visit. But it also told me that I was s ll in the overweight category and I have to lose another 10kg to reach my ideal body weight. There’s plenty of work s ll to be done but at the moment I’m almost 18kg down on my heaviest recorded weight, and I feel good. When you’re pregnant you have all these wonderful ideas of what motherhood is going to be like, and while it is amazing, it turns out many of those pre-baby ideas were fantasy. When you’ve got a young baby, they dictate so much of your life. You’re on their me schedule. While pregnant, a friend and I decided we’d go for regular walks together a er our babies were born to help lose our baby weight, but in reality trying to synchronise ourselves and our babies for a regular walk, hasn’t happened. We’ve been walking together once but we do catch up at least once a week … for coﬀee or hot chocolate with a group of other mums, for which we drive to a café for. It’s probably not great for our waistlines, but it’s a me to share our experiences and learn from others. It’s all one big learning game this PHOTO TETSURO MITOMO 300513-TM-151 motherhood thing. Mum Erin, and Riley Tasker enjoy a quiet moment together on the couch.
What the health professionals say:
never tell women in the first six weeks to lose weight, as we want women to be able to make lots of milk to make baby grow, and this in turn makes a happy mum and happy household. “It is important to eat a good diet, cu ng out takeaway food, fizzy drink and lollies will ensure the excess weight will come oﬀ. “If these foods have been cut back on during pregnancy, there shouldn’t be too much to lose.

What the net says:
ost mums don’t reach their prepregnancy weight un l their babies are one year old. So don’t stress; motherhood is stressful enough without worrying about your weight. If you do want to start working oﬀ those extra kilograms, from the me you get home from the hospital, 10-20 minute relaxed strolls are good for you. For more formal workouts though it’s recommended you wait six weeks. If you are breas eeding you may no ce the extra weight comes oﬀ steadily. That’s because when your body produces breast milk, it uses up extra calories. But on the other hand, many breas eeding women find they are more hungry so they tend to eat more. Easy post-baby strengthening exercises you can do at home include: The plank – Kneel on the floor. Bend elbows and place forearms on ground, clasping hands, forming a small triangle with hands and elbows. Straighten legs and balance on forearms and toes. Once balanced, make sure your bo om is level with the rest of body, forming a straight line. Crisscross – On back, clasp hands behind head and slightly li the tops of your shoulder blades oﬀ floor. Straighten and li le leg a foot oﬀ the floor as you twist at waist, bringing right knee slowly in toward le shoulder. Be careful not to round your back or pull on your head or neck. Hold for two counts, then twist to the other side for one rep. Aim for 8 to 12 reps.
Just for mothers
tudio Fit, based at the Gym Company in Ashburton, runs a class specifically tailored to the needs of mums wan ng to regain some post-baby fitness. Fit Mums runs twice a week and allows mums to work out with their babies in tow, in strollers. Mums and bubs work out in a group environment. Studio Fit group fitness manager Anna Johnson said each new mum was diﬀerent, depending on the type of birth they’d had and what their fitness levels had been like pre-baby. The group’s focus tended to be on good strong walking, ac vi es like lunges, building stomach muscles back up and strengthening joints. For many of the mums that take part, the biggest plus of the group is being able to take their babies along. Fit Mums is s ll reasonably new to Ashburton, formed a er Studio Fit’s Rachael Rickard had a baby herself. “She was looking for something she could do with Hazel and with like-minded people of similar fitness levels,” Anna said.

Stress-check yourself magazine WITH A LITTLE APPLICATION BY MYLES HUME
ome mes you get home from work and ask yourself: I wonder if anyone is as stressed as me? Stress is diﬃcult to measure and, as Kiwis, it can be hard to talk about. But to add a bit of context and understanding, a research-based assessment app called Stress Check can measure your stress level with a 20 ques on survey and provide advice on the areas of your life that need a en on. It puts forward ques ons about your work, personal and social life, where you are given the op on of five mul choice ques ons ranging from always to never. During my 20-ques on examina on my stress level was found to be 48 out of 100, which the app classes as moderate. It said I had “challenges”
with nega ve feelings that arise from stress, which exacerbates the problem. It also found I some mes did not feel as though I was “captain of my own ship” and felt I was not always in control, which I put largely down to my unpredictable job. I was baﬄed to find how accurate this assessment was, with some of the suggested aspects of my life causing the stress being right on the bu on. I can be pre y easy going but I have been told I have high expecta ons of myself, which can be my downfall at mes. One of the key aspects of this app is its ability to oﬀer up solu ons to the parts of life that are causing stress. But they only go so far. To deal with the nega ve mindset that comes
from stress, it said I could suﬀer physically, so peaceful management techniques such as yoga and deep breathing may help. But I don’t know if that’s really me. To deal with the control it said I need to be er organise my life, but my diary is usually full. If I’m to do my own assessment, I think the exciting world of journalism with ght deadlines and various stories could play a roll, but it’s all part of the job. To me this app emerged with some personal and accurate answers which shows it was put together by a group of professionals in the field. It was interes ng to know where I sat on the stress spectrum, and with a “tracker” system, you can see if your stress levels are growing or declining with regular surveys.

hanna flour, also known as besan, garbanzo or gram flour, is a flour made from ground chickpeas. Channa flour is a nutri onal powerhouse, high in fibre, iron, carbohydrates and rela vely high in protein. It is also gluten free. Most commonly used in cooking in parts of South and Southeast Asia, channa flour is used in recipes like pakoras, onion bhajis and papadums. Chickpea flour can be stored in the freezer but bring to room temperature before using. For the vege phobic, this recipe is fantas c for contributing to your five-plus a day. This recipe has been in my family for many years and while they may seem a li le fiddly, they are well worth the eﬀort. Even the children love them!

Fight that winter frizz
inter can be a great chance for hair to recover from summer salt and sun – but rain, wind and extra moisture in the air during the colder months can make keeping it well-behaved a nightmare. If your hair has a bad case of the winter blues, here are a few things you can try.
WHY DOES IT HAPPEN? Hair is extremely sensi ve to moisture in the air – so sensi ve that it is used in some hygrometers, instruments used to measure humidity. Kim Reed, salon manager at DNA Hairdressing in Ashburton, explains how exposure to extra moisture can actually dry hair out. “In the same way that doing a lot of washing or dishes can strip the moisture from your hands, if your hair gets wet a lot it can dry out. “Moisture is drawn to moisture, so rain and extra humidity open up the hair follicles, draw the moisture out and leave it dry.
CAN ANYTHING BE DONE? The best defence against frizzy hair is keeping it well moisturised. An -frizz treatments usually work in two ways – both moisturising the hair on the inside and coa ng it in a protec ve layer to keep moisture out. Regular deep condi oning treatments can help to restore nutrients to hair, moisturise and seal the sha to keep moisture from escaping.
HOME TREATMENTS V PROFESSIONAL CARE
Home treatments can be easy, cheap and fun to experiment with. From salad dressings to fruit cocktails, the ‘miracle treatments’ recommended by friends, neighbours and online forums are endless. So if you have everything you need for glorious locks in your kitchen cupboards, why go to a hairdresser? Sadly, it isn’t quite that simple, Tash Baker of Minx Hair Spa in Ashburton explains. “A lot of those treatments are a quick fix. Their hair will feel condi oned and so , but they’ll have to keep repea ng it to get the results. “Good products will repair inside the cu cle, and professionals can help you pick out treatments that will protect your hair all year round.” And as Kim Reed from DNA Hairdressing said, it makes no sense to spend big dollars on clothing that will be worn once a week, while ignoring the hair we’ll wear every day. “It’s really cool that people can experiment and that it’s so accessible, but it’s trial and error and people need to be cau ous. Some of the home mixes are less water-soluble, and can make the hair impenetrable. “When your hair is fragile you need something that will help to rebuild from the inside, and a professional can show you exactly what your hair needs.”
Avoid the frizz this winter Redken’s exclusive delivery system, helps nourish and protect to lock out frizz and humidity for smooth results and a 92% reduction in frizz that lasts up to 48 hours*. *Results achieved with the use of Smooth Lock ck Shampoo, Conditioner and Heat Glide vs. a non-conditioning shampoo
Corner East and Burnett Street (03) 307 7411 | email@example.com
SIMPLE TIPS TO KEEP DRYNESS AWAY – Rinse your hair in cold water a er each wash, to close the cu cle and keep moisture inside. Adding a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to the rinse can help to seal the cu cle. – When towel-drying hair, rubbing the hair can cause fric on and frizz. Try gently squeezing it dry with a handtowel, from the ends to the roots. – Tuck your hair in a hat or scarf when facing harsh wind or rain. Not only will it keep your hair dier, it will be less vulnerable to breaking or drying out. – Rather than combing your hair when it’s damp and vulnerable to breakage, get the knots out of your hair before you shower. Avoid using finetoothed combs. – Sta c and extra frizz can some mes be caused by shampoos reac ng with the natural proteins in your hair. If all else fails, consider changing your shampoo.
DEEP-CONDITIONING OILS STRAIGHT FROM YOUR PANTRY
any oils found in the home, however, are rich in the vitamins and minerals hair needs to stay healthy, strong and shiny, and can give that extra protecon against winter frizz. But with so many varied types of hair and as many diﬀerent causes of dryness, experimen ng with home hair treatments can be a risky business. Proceed with cau on, and avoid experimen ng before important dates or occasions! – Coconut oil: Rich in vitamin E and with a very light scent, coconut oil is one of the few oils that can penetrate into both the cu cle and cortex of the hair, as its structure is similar to the natural hair proteins. You can try using it as a pre-wash strengthening and condi oning treatment, or a ny amount just on the ends of hair as a leave-in condi oner. Watch how you store it! Raw coconut oil will solidify when cold.
– Extra virgin olive oil Heavier than coconut oil, olive oil is also rich in vitamin E and has been used on hair for centuries. Try using olive oil as a monthly deep condi oner, to restore nutrients and leave the hair so and shiny. A pea-size amount used right on the ends of curly hair can help separate curls and minimise frizz. Beware of the smell! Olive oil can have a strong scent, especially when heated or le in hair. Make sure you rinse it out thoroughly. – Argan oil Unless you hail from Morocco, this one is less likely to be found in your kitchen cupboard – but you can find it at most health food stores and as an ingredient in a lot of hair serums. Rich in minerals and vitamins, it is light enough to be used as a daily leave-in condi oner for most hair types.

What does your face tell you?
hen it comes to assessing the state of your health, it may be that the answers are wri en all over your face. According to Chinese medicine, your face provides a wealth of informa on about the health of your inner organs. Orthodox medicine also relies on facial signals to help diagnose certain condi ons. To start reading your body’s signals, check out these seven signs to take note of. VISIBLE SIGNALS: Your face provides many clues to the state of your health - don’t ignore the warning signs. Forehead acne According to Chinese medicine, the forehead is closely linked to the diges ve system, and the area between the eyebrows is linked to the liver. Over-indulgence of rich foods and alcohol may cause temporary acne in this area, and frequent breakouts could indicate poor nutrional habits. Maintain a healthy diet and stay hydrated. You may also wish to get tested for suspected food intolerances, which can aﬀect both the liver and diges ve system.
Congested cheeks Although pimples on the cheeks may have simple causes such as cosme cs or unclean pillowcases, this area is also thought to be linked to the lungs. Zits in this region can indicate respiratory distress; smokers, asthma cs and allergy suﬀerers are prone to breakouts or broken capillaries on the cheeks. Spots on the chin and jawline Zits on the chin and jawline are generally thought to be due to hormonal fluctua ons and may appear on women at par cular stages of their menstrual cycle. Persistent acne in this area, however, may be a symptom of a hormone imbalance or endocrine disorder such as polycys c ovary syndrome, so get your hormone levels checked if you are experiencing other symptoms such as missed periods or weight gain. Dark circles and under-eye bags Dark circles and under-eye bags are mostly
hereditary. However, if you find they make a sudden appearance or get significantly worse, this may point to certain health problems. The under-eye area is thought to be linked to the kidneys, so changes here may suggest dehydra on or a build-up of toxins. Drink more water and cut down on alcohol, caﬀeine and salt. Alterna vely, circles could be caused by anaemia, due to vitamin B12 or iron deficiencies. Unusual tongue According to Chinese medicine, your tongue is a map to your health, and orthodox medical professionals also use the tongue to iden fy various condi ons. Anaemia (caused by a lack of iron, folate or vitamin B12) is one such condi on. Symptoms include a burning, sore or red tongue. A blue discoloura on of the tongue (cyanosis) could indicate a lack of oxygen in the bloodstream, and white lesions on the tongue could be a sign of oral thrush.
Excessive facial or body hair Excessive body or facial hair (hirsu sm) can be a frustra ng and embarrassing problem. However, it can also be a symptom of an underlying endocrine disorder, which may need to be checked out. One of the most common female endocrine disorders is polycys c ovary syndrome, which frequently results in excessive body hair as well as acne, weight gain and irregular periods. Moles Moles may o en get bad press; however, providing you look a er them properly (by applying sunscreen, staying out the sun and checking them regularly), moles may actually be a good sign for your health. A research team from King’s College, London, found that those with more than 100 moles have tougher bones and are less likely to develop osteoporosis, while those with moles are likely to have healthier eyes and heart.

YOU do it yourself
you magazine DO IT YOURSELF SHANE WOODS gives us some practical advice on DIY projects
lthough the cold weather has well and truly set in, you can s ll get your clothes dry outside if you have a good clothesline in the right spot. And installing a clothesline isn’t diﬃcult, in fact it’s the perfect DIY project. There are many clotheslines on the market that will suit the amount of washing you do and the amount of space you have in your back yard. You can choose from the tradi onal hoist clothesline that many of us grew up with, a space-saving retractable version, or the less common fold-down op on. Whatever op on you choose, you will need to make sure you erect it in a spot that receives the
most sunlight, and ideally away from trees and view if possible. If you are installing a fold-down or retractable clothesline in a small area, choose the outside wall that receives the most sunlight. A hoist clothesline generally recommends the area diameter and hole dimensions for concreting its central pole in place. Simply follow the instruc ons for the depth of the hole, wet the inside of the hole, posi on clothesline in place and pre-mix concrete with water. Make sure to get rid of any air bubbles and use a spirit level to make sure it is in straight. Leave the concrete to cure for about 24 hours, and
then follow the installa on instruc ons of the manufacturer. Job done. The reason you need to wet the inside of the hole is to prevent the dry soil absorbing the moisture out of the wet concrete, which would weaken the stability of your clothesline. If you choose a wall-mounted retractable clothesline, or the fold-down version, the moun ng components are usually supplied with it. When you have decided the best spot to site it, making sure the wall will support it, level and a ach the wall brackets then follow the assembly instruc ons. If the wall isn’t going to be strong enough, ground conversion kits are available.
restring? Time to
f you have a good quality old-school clothesline that is looking a bit worse for wear, there could be plenty of life le in it by simply restringing it by replacing the wire. The quickest way to restring a clothesline is to start in the middle and work up to the upper most point. Before you start, measure out the line you need to thread the top three rows, and stretch the line across each row, adding a bit extra. If you have a four arm clotheline you will need four mes that length to complete the top three rows. Tie a loose loop in the line to mark the spot. A good p is to roll the new clothesline cord oďŹ€ the coil and lay it out in the garden so it will pull through easily. Thread the line through the lower eyelet and through three arms so you have the line
halfway around row three. Hold onto the end of the line a er threading it through the arm to prevent any tangles. Now pull all the line through to the point where you ed the loop. Thread up the other half of row three and pull all the line through. Thread the line through the upper eyelet on row three and then up to the lower eyelet on row two. Restring half of row two pulling all the line through, now thread the other half of row two, use the same procedure to thread up the top row. When the top rows are complete measure out how much line you need for the lower rows, again use one side of the line and stretch the line across each row and allow a bit extra, so for a four arm line you will need four mes that length. Thread up the lower rows using the same procedure.

recently purchased property in Rakaia – a two-bedroomed co age, which I call Whare I (small house). And with it I inherited a garden best described as a pizza, so I have decided to enlist some help. Enter Dale Smith, a local hor culturalist with some good ideas for ge ng started – which he does by mowing the overgrown lawn, which way beyond the capabili es of my “ladies’ mower”. There are some lovely trees on the property and an array of gorgeous perennials – but haphazard plan ng has delivered a shambolic and largely unmanageable jungle in some areas, where self-seeded spuds jostle for space with raspberry canes, a rambling grape vine, blackberry and, as I recently discovered, a prolific feijoa bush. However, I’m going to concentrate on the courtyard as a first step. Firstly, the tree planted in the centre had to go. With the top smashed out – presumably in a long ago snow storm – that flowering cherry had plenty to weep about. Apart from being
unsightly, it oﬀered no shelter or shade and shed its leaves in such a manner they blew directly under the verandah and in the front door. Behind the stunted tree, in a raised garden bed, another eclec c assortment of shrubs and trees vied for space against the boundary fence. Several cabbage trees tethered to the fence have well outgrown the space; however I like cabbage trees and would prefer to spare them the fate of the cherry. No problem, according to my landscaping guru Dale: the three red cabbage trees can be transplanted – into the far corners of the secon, where there is space in similar raised beds. However, there is no room for the smoke bush planted in the courtyard. More suited to Australian soils, it will soon outgrow its posion and probably won’t hold up to the winds further back in the garden. Likewise several flaxes will be removed – when planted they would have been delicate and appealing, but these plants spread rapidly and will soon push out the retaining wall if not dealt with. But first, the courtyard garden is cleared of all

the overgrown remnants of a summer flower bed. The trellised roses along the fence are also in need of prompt a en on, and straggling shoots soon fall prey to Dale’s secateurs. At the moment the roses can stay put – but I’ll be reviewing that decision in the spring. The area was soon transformed into a winter vegetable patch, sheltered from the worst of the gales which howl down the Rakaia Gorge, and close enough to duck out to harvest in inclement weather. Although I’m making a late start I’ve got some
silverbeet and spinach plants in, and am ready to plant broad beans and snow peas. I’ve also planted garlic and shallot bulbs, to flavour next autumn’s dishes and to help ward oﬀ pests when the soil warms up in the spring. In the corner of the courtyard, I have inherited a ‘girl cave’ – a covered wooden gazebo-like structure, with jasmine climbing over the top – and increasingly creeping through the roof. Although I’ve yet to spend a full summer at Whare I , it was a pleasant spot for an evening barbecue during the autumn months – but it
definitely needs a spruce up. Also at the same end of the courtyard, an outdoor fishpond in the form of a bathtub is an eyesore – a decision will have to be made about the resident koi. And the spot le by the cherry tree needs to be considered – they will be my next projects. Right now I have another problem to deal with – apparently my newly-established vege patch looks very similar to a feline latrine! I’d be interested to hear readers’ ideas on how to deal with this dilemma.
ANY TIPS? re-fire Do you have any su patch ur ways of making yo ve to c of soil look una ra e? in cats as a latr to If so, we would love ail em se hear them... plea rdian. michelle.n@thegua co.nz

in town who remember them have been gagged) and while some would consider it did aﬀect my brain, generally speaking I escaped fairly well. But we got around in cars that were lucky to push 80km/hour with no heaters, and we usually only managed to score a bit of beer or some foul cheap wine like Pink Chardon ... ohhhh, it just sounded so flash. Throughout the ages teenagers have always pushed the boundaries, tes ng out their newfound freedom and manhood or womanhood. I get that, I was one once ... a long, long, long me ago. I have to say I was a foul teen. My gorgeous, tolerant mum should have sent me to live in a school for mouthy teens... but seriously, she should have cut me oﬀ at the knees, metaphorically speaking. I was not beyond swearing at her and dismissing anything she said. How she kept her cool is way beyond me ... my teens aren’t as lucky. The ‘I hate yous’ and the ‘I’ll do what I want anyways’ don’t phase me par cularly, because
I know the passwords to the computers and I’m not beyond throwing one (a computer) out a window if I’m pushed beyond endurance. Wouldn’t that make my Facebook-addicted girlteen feel like she’s missing a limb. I truely don’t get what’s hard about saying no. I do recognise that as your children age, we need to let go a li le bit and have some faith... but I do try to do that in degrees rather than jumping straight into the deep end. Our binge-drinking culture has a lot to answer for, but we, as parents, need to keep up our end of the bargain too. That sleepover your 14-yearold is going to on Saturday night ... is it really a sleepover? Have you rung the parents? I don’t give a toss if my teenragers think I’m uncool for finding out the details of their “outings”. If my 14-year-old ended up at a party drunk and vulnerable, it sure wouldn’t be with my knowledge. So at that age, they might expect that their mum will be ringing to check out their weekend plans are what they say they are.
