Book Club



‘This is How it Ends’ by Kathleen MacMahon This is when it begins Autumn, 2008. This is where it begins The coast of Dublin. This is why it begins Bruno, an American, has come to Ireland to search for his roots. Addie, an outof-work architect, is recovering from heartbreak while taking care of her infirm father. When their worlds collide, they experience a connection unlike any they’ve previously felt, but soon their newfound love will be tested in ways they never imagined possible. This is how it ends ...

‘I’ve Got Your Number’ by Sophie Kinsella I’ve lost it. :( The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’ family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive!! :) A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls and Poppy’s life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she’s lost her phone too. When she spots an abandoned phone in a bin it seems it

was meant to be. Finders Keepers! Except the phone’s owner, elusive businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back, and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life. Can things get any more tangled?

‘Stonemouth’ by Iain Banks This novel is essentially a love story, and a very modern one, where the main characters, who are in their mid twenties, experiment with almost everything - often with serious consequences. The story is centred around the return of Stewart Gilmour from London, where he has found some success, to his home town near Aberdeen. The town of Stonemouth has problems; an unusually high mortality rate involving the nearby bridge, a strong drug culture, and the presence of two dominant families, who mix legal and illegal activity in fairly equal measure. Iain Banks covers strong themes here; loyalty, friendship, enduring love, fear and courage, and beautifully evokes aspects of life in Scotland, as well as what it is to be young, smart, and prone to making some very bad decisions. This is a beautifully written and highly enjoyable work of fiction. Highly recommended

July in the Kitchen



wn s ra P ra u p m e T d n a ss a Sea B it h w p m a h C h s ri I n o d e rv se Swe et C hilli Sa u ce. BATTER

75g cornflour 75g plain flour 1 egg, lightly beaten 188ml beer


Raw king prawns, shells and central veins removed.

Try t htirses..u.lts

es For the b ell batter is w e th e r u s en fore using e b d le il h c

PREP FOR THE BATTER 1. Sift the cornflour and flour together into a medium bowl. 2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the egg and beer. Whisk from the centre outwards. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over whisk - a few lumps are okay. Place the batter in the fridge to cool. 3. Put some sifted pain flour on a plate to dust the prawns in. Dip the prawns into the batter and add to the hot oil to deep-fry in batches for 2-3 minutes, or until crisp and golden. 4. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.


This is essentially mash potato combined with finely chopped

spring onions. Cook and prepare your mash as normal, then stir the chopped spring onions through the potato.


Cook the Sea Bass skin side down until crispy. Carefully turn the fish to cook the flesh side. The majority of the cooking is done when the skin side is cooking, so the flesh side takes very little time to cook. Serve with a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce or as a dipping sauce.

July in the Garden


his is often one of the hottest months of the year and a great time to sit out and enjoy your garden. Keep plants looking good by regularly dead-heading, and you’ll enjoy a longer display of blooms. Make sure you keep new plants well watered and hoe off weeds, which thrive in the sunshine.



TOP 10 THINGS TO DO THIS MONTH 6. Treat apple scab 1. Check clematis for signs of clematis wilt 2. Place conservatory plants outside now that it is warm 3. Water tubs and new plants if dry, but be water-wise 4. Deadhead bedding plants and repeatflowering perennials, to ensure continuous flowering 5. Pick courgettes before they become marrows

The Fire Alarm Consultancy Limited We design, supply, maintain and install Fire Alarms, Emergency Lighting & Nurse Call Systems

7. Clear algae, blanket weeds and debris from ponds, and keep them topped up 8. Order catalogues for next year’s springflowering bulbs 9. Give the lawn a quick-acting summer feed, especially if a spring feed was not done 10. Give woodwork a lick of paint or preserver, while the weather is dry.
