Exotic pets Are you ready for an exotic animal as a pet?

These unique animals can be great pets, but usually require a specially equipped home. The truth is that most exotic animals are better off in their natural habitat or in a zoo, not in your home. If you are considering buying an exotic pet, there are some things you should consider before taking that final step. These tips will help you determine whether exotic animals as pets are right for you.

Just what is an exotic animal anyway?

Animals that aren’t commonly kept as pets are typically considered exotic. Dogs, cats, fish, birds, and hamsters are regular domestic pets. Animals that you see at the zoo, such as alligators, lions, tigers, monkeys, and very large snakes are all exotic pets.

Why would someone want an exotic pet?

The reasons vary from person to person. Some people just like to be different. Some like the danger factor. Others are bored with common pets and want something more challenging and unique. And some people just love animals. However, as you’ll discover, love isn’t always enough when it comes to caring for exotic animals as pets.

can pose a fatal risk to children in the home, according to the Royal Humane Society. This risk is like having a lion or tiger in the home! These animals are not bred or trained to be domestic. Exotic animals also carry and spread disease. The Royal Humane Society explains that exotic animals carry diseases that are dangerous and even fatal to humans. Macaque monkeys commonly carry the Herpes B virus which can be fatal. Reptiles and amphibians can carry Salmonella, posing a threat in homes with children. Rabies can be found in many wild animals and is transmitted through saliva when a person is bitten.

But it’s so cute!

A big driving force behind the exotic animal trade is “cute” baby animals. From monkeys to big cats, these newborns are very delightful, and at such a young age seem quite harmless. You must remember that baby animals grow up! Small teeth turn into big sharp teeth, tiny paws and claws grow into lethal weapons. If you do decide to get a baby exotic animal, just be sure you’re prepared for what’s ahead. Do your research. Find out the pros and cons of raising this kind of animal. Call other owners and get their opinion. While animal diseases pose a threat, a more common threat is injury from an animal’s bite. Non-domesticated animals are much more prone to biting adults and children regardless of their time spent in captivity. Wild animals also do not usually bond with their owners like a domesticated pet does. This means that even the people with whom the animal has daily contact are at a higher risk of being bitten. These bites can transmit disease and cause severe injuries and death in some cases.

Exotic pets can be hazardous to your health Although some exotic animals can seem similar to domestic pets. they can be much more dangerous. For example, smaller wild cats like ocelots or bobcats


Exotic animals have not been bred to be domesticated, and they are essentially wild. Wild animals are driven by natural survival instincts that are much stronger than any short-term training can provide. These instincts can take over at any moment often to the surprise of the owner who thought their exotic pet was tame. Wild animals require many years and many generations to be domesticated. Keep in mind that the dogs and cats we enjoy as pets were domesticated thousands of years ago. Don’t be tricked into believing you can domesticate an exotic animal or its offspring in a few years. Find out the best and worst of having this kind of exotic pet. How much space will you need for this full-grown animal? How much food will they require? What about illness? Where do you take the animal in the event of the pet becoming sick?

It’s #myskegness! Skegness Town Council has launched a fun campaign to invite local residents to take photos illustrating what Skegness means to them. Called My Skegness, the campaign aims to find out what people think of the town – what they love and what needs improving. The campaign is part of a consultation exercise in preparation for writing a Neighbourhood Plan for the town. A Neighbourhood Plan sets out planning policies for the future and is a powerful tool to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place. The photo campaign is an opportunity to get impressions of Skegness from the people that matter – the people who live here!

So, get those cameras out and get snapping! Take a photo of what Skegness means to you – the good bits and the bad – and post it on Instagram, Twitter or the My Skegness Chat Group on Facebook. Add the hashtag #myskegness and the Council will pick it up and re-post it. There will be competitions coming very soon including:

•• • •

Photo of the week Photo of the month Groups and societies photo of the month Best photo by a child under the age of 10 Best photo by a young person under the age of 15

The chosen photos will feature in an exhibition to be put on by the Council at a future date.

Cllrs Dick Edginton and Sue Blackburn who are leading this for the Council say: “We would like to know your views - what Skegness means to you, what you love about it and what you don’t. What are your favourite bits and which are the areas you would like to see a change? Take a picture, post it on Instagram, Twitter or the My Skegness Chat Group on Facebook, add the hashtag #myskegness and we’ll repost it. The best will feature in an exhibition!”

Holiday review

Ski destinations Great little ski resorts you may never have heard of Small resorts with superb, hassle-free skiing, traditional architecture and après frolics to suit all are still out there – and usually cheaper than the big names, too.

Good for beginners St Johann, Tyrol, Austria

Where: Most people have heard of St Johann’s more famous neighbour, Kitzbühel. What they don’t know is that this Tyrolean town has a similar medieval centre, with frescoed buildings and old coaching inns, but lower prices. It has 43km of pistes and 17 lifts.

Les Saisies, France

Where: The village is in the beautiful Beaufortain valley, 30km from the town of Albertville. It has 192km of pistes and 81 lifts. Why: It’s known as a cross-country resort, but the downhill skiing is mainly gentle and ideal for beginners. This is a great place to find your legs on pistes that aren’t too steep and hairy. Book: Hameau du Beaufortain flats cost from £245pp based on six sharing:

Good for off-piste Orelle, France

Where: This charming little resort in the Maurienne valley is made up of 10 hamlets of slate-roofed stone houses, and has some of the area’s best-value accommodation. Why: The skiing is linked by lift over the Col de Rosael to Val Thorens, so you can enjoy the slopes of the Trois Vallées at a fraction of the price of staying there – and enjoy the off-piste opportunities around the quieter Maurienne area, too. Book: Residence Le Hameau des Eaux d’Orelle costs £485 for four people in a one-bedroom apt. Price includes Eurotunnel crossing, flights to Geneva extra: zenithholidays.

Engelberg, Switzerland

Why: This is a good destination for beginners and intermediates, with nursery slopes on the gentle meadows behind the station. There’s a good choice of ski schools and those who fancy a day off the slopes can try hot-airballooning. Book: A week at Pension Mair costs £469pp B&B including flights from Gatwick:


Where: It is the nearest resort to Lake Luzern, 1h20m from Zurich airport. Why: This is one of the first resorts in the Alps to get new snow from the north or north-west, so conditions are reliable. There’s a glacier and two world-class off-piste descents – the Laub and the Galtiburg – as well as 82km of pistes and 25 lifts. Prime Ski School has instructors on hand on the slopes, offering tips and video analysis (from about £7 a run). Book: A stay at Hotel Terrace costs from £399pp B&B (two sharing), flights extra:

Please mention Inside Skegness Magazine when responding to advertisements

Good for families Geilo, Norway

Where: In the Hallingdal valley, north-west of Oslo, Norway’s oldest ski resort is reachable by train and shuttle bus from Bergen and Oslo airports. Why: The slopes are quiet and unintimidating, and the ski school is award-winning, making it a great place to learn, especially as all the ski instructors speak good English. Children will also love the off-slope options, from horsesleigh rides to ice fishing to a new treetop walk. Book: From £555pp self-catering in Geilolia forest cabins, based on four sharing:

Gressoney, Italy

Where: Gressoney is part of a group of unsung resorts in the Aosta valley, sharing a ski area with Champoluc and Alagna. Gressoney-La-Trinité, with its cobbled streets and wooden chalets, provides the most convenient base from which to explore the linked Monterosa ski area, which has 150km of pistes and 44 lifts. Why: Families will love the quiet pistes and lack of queues, and the little ones will wolf down the Italian food. Book: Chalet Hotel Valverde in Gressoney-La-Trinité costs £2,019 half-board for a family of four:

Arinsal, Andorra

Where: In western Andorra, Arinsal is part of the Vallnord ski area, where your ski pass also gives access to the resorts of Arcalis and Pal. Why: Under-12s get free lift passes, and prices are lower than in the Alps. The ski school comes highly recommended and the safe, enclosed slopes are great for kids and first-time skiers. Book: Central Hotel Princesa Parc offers free childcare for 3-11-year-olds and also has a bowling alley. From £523pp half-board:

Good for nightlife Sölden, Austria

Where: This resort couldn’t be more different from smaller, quieter neighbour Obergurgl. The busy main street buzzes with bars, restaurants and shops. The two glaciers mean snow is pretty much guaranteed and the views are spectacular. Why: There are 40 places to eat in town and 30 up the mountain, but the star is the glass-and-steel Ice Q (pictured right), which features in the Bond movie ‘Spectre’. Après venues include the on-mountain Obstlerhütte and five nightclubs. Book: Chalet Hotel Hermann costs £721pp half-board including three days’ ski hosting:

Seasonal tips


Wild Autumn - top six things to look for Fantastic Fungi!

Fungi are not just in woodlands they pop up all over the place: on lawns and in parks, on piles of wood chip and on dead logs, on the ground and on the trunks of trees - even on cowpats! Have fun discovering the rather strange and mysterious world of fungi but take care, some species are very poisonous and only experts can identify the ones which are safe to eat!

Thrilling deer ruts

If you have a local deer park then visit it in the Autumn. This is the time of year when stags and bucks develop antlers and fight rival males to attract a harem of females! Red deer are our largest land mammal and the stags have the most spectacular antlers of any British species. Deer, of several species, are surprisingly widespread and at this time of year you may hear the barking of muntjac and roe deer or the roaring of red deer at night.

Birds in flocks

Autumn - a time of plenty Autumn is a time of plenty with berries, fruits, nuts and seeds everywhere. The colours of autumn are beautiful and it’s also a time of change, as some birds arrive, others leave on migration and animals get ready for the cold of winter.

Autumn - September, October and November

During Autumn the days are rapidly getting shorter and the sun is becoming lower in the sky. The Autumn equinox, when day and night are of equal length, is on 23 September. There are often spectacular sunsets in Autumn, the stars can seem brighter at night and on some mornings mist hangs over fields and parks. This is a time of nature’s plenty, with a wonderful hedgerow harvest of blackberries, rose hips, crab apples, hazelnuts and seeds. Many wildlife species take advantage of this wild harvest to build up reserves of fat for migration or for hibernation.


Autumn is when many birds form flocks – from parties of long-tailed tits to huge flocks of waders on coastal estuaries and murmurations of starlings. Look for flocks of jackdaws, rooks and carrion crows flying to woodland roosts on Autumn evenings. If you live near the coast look for great skeins of migratory geese which arrive from Arctic breeding grounds to spend the winter with us.

Intricate spiders webs

On cold autumn mornings you suddenly realise how many spiders there are! Take an early morning walk and spot spider webs outlined in dew on hedgerows, in meadows and even on house windows and car wing mirrors. Spider silk is truly amazing – see if you can find a spider actually making a web and watch carefully how it’s constructed!

Visit a beech wood

Autumn is the time when trees turn amazing colours and then shed their leaves. Any woodland in late autumn will have trees showing autumn colours but beech woodland can be especially spectacular with leaves turning yellow, gold and orange before they fall. Magic!

Clean out nest-boxes

If your nest-box has been used in the summer it’s a good idea to clean it out in the autumn. Remove any old nests as this will make sure there is room for a new nest next year and reduce the risk of bird parasites overwintering in the box. Wear gloves when you do this job and always work in twos with someone holding the ladder if you have to use one.

Film review

October The Ritual The Ritual follows the reunion of a group of college friends, which takes a turn for the terrifying as they try to navigate a creepy, foreboding forest. It was supposed to be a relatively easy hike through the country that would let them reconnect, but they soon realise that something’s not right in these woods. There’s something out there, stalking them – and it’s not going to let them leave. Based on the terrifying, award-winning novel by Adam Nevill, ‘The Ritual’ is a chilling horror story that reminds us it’s never safe to go into the woods. Released on: 13/10/17 | Genre: Horror Cast members: Rafe Spall, Rob James-Collier, Sam Troughton | Running time: 94 minutes Directed by: David Bruckner

Home Again

Blade Runner 2049 Director Denis Villeneuve takes us back to the dark future of the original classic to find a new blade runner, Ocer K, searching for the missing Rick Deckard. Deckard disappeared 30 years ago, but K has discovered a secret that could plunge what remains of society into turmoil. With the world continuing to decay around him, he hunts for Deckard, the one man who may be able to help him. The long-awaited sequel to a landmark of science fiction, ‘Blade Runner 2049’ brings Harrison Ford back to his iconic role, and sees the acclaimed director of ‘Arrival’ put his stamp on the dystopian cyberpunk future. Released on: 06/10/17 | Genre: Action, Drama, Science Fiction | Cast members: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright | Running time: 163 minutes Directed by: Denis Villeneuve


When Alice separates from her husband, she needs a clean break and goes ‘Home Again’, back to Los Angeles. And then she invites three young men to live with her… During a night out on her 40th birthday, she meets three aspiring film-makers who need a place to stay, and she agrees to let them live in her guesthouse. It’s an impulsive decision that will change her life forever, bringing new friendships and new romance – at least until her ex-husband shows up again. Go back ‘Home Again’ with Reese Witherspoon in this heartwarming story of love, friendship and the families we create for ourselves. Released on: 29/09/17 Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance Cast members: Reese Witherspoon, Michael Sheen, Candice Bergen Running time: 97 minutes Directed by: Hallie Meyers-Shyer

We dry-clean and maintain your drive throughout the year The Moss man has been operating in the Skegness and Louth areas for nearly 3 years now and has built up a large customer base.

We are based in Sloothby near Skegness, Lincolnshire. Through being in the building trade for many years we realised that keeping block paving weed and moss free is a real problem. For years pressure washing has been the only real option, although a wire brush with a long handle is also useful if you have the time.

This will keep the surface of your blocks clean. We then re- treat the block paving every 3 months to help control the regrowth. As I’m sure you are aware, unless the blocks are maintained the weeds and moss will keep returning. We clean your drive from only £99.00, then going forward maintain it from only £29.99 every three months. It’s cheaper than getting your windows cleaned. We are now also treating roofs without standing on them or upsetting the neighbours..... If your roof is green and you want it clean call The Moss Man for an eco-friendly gleam !! We are fully qualified and insured for your peace of mind. We are looking for new franchisees for Lincoln, Peterborough, Newark and Grantham. If you are looking for a new career working for yourself, or a family member, give Paul a call on 01507 463336. This is an exciting new franchise opportunity - don’t miss out in your area. Welcome Mr Adam Wright, our new franchisee covering Boston, Spilsby, Friskney, Woodhall Spa and all surrounding villages. Call him on 01754 761606 for a free quote today.

Ly Neither of these options kill the weeds or moss, however. They simply remove the green, but in the case of the weeds it leaves the roots intact and with the moss, sores are left behind and fed with there favourite food - water! Pressure washing can remove the sand which the blocks are laid on, making your block drop and causing untold damage to your driveway which, in turn, could lead to having it relaid. We kill the weeds and treat the moss and algae, making sure the weeds have been killed at the root before brushing all the debris from between the block work. After all debris is removed we treat the surface to remove any algae left in the blocks.

House to home


Put down area rugs

There’s something about having softness under your feet that makes you feel cosy. If you have hard floors in the seating area of your room or around the bed, consider putting down an area rug to add some comfort (it’s hard to get out of bed if you know your feet are going to hit a cold floor!)

Create a reading nook

Set up a corner in the room with a comfortable seat, a reading light, some good books, and a place to set a drink. It will look so cosy, you may even find yourself reading more. Somewhat enclosed spaces, like a window bench in a office, seem to have built-in cosiness …take advantage of it by making it a good place to sit.

Use textured fabrics

How to make your home more cosy Now that the weather is getting colder, it is time to mentally prepare for winter. Part of the way to do that is to make a house more cosy…that way it looks and feels warm inside even if it’s cold outside. Most of these ways are easy and inexpensive, so hopefully some of them will help make your home more cosy, too.

Textured fabrics such as faux fur, chenille and velvet are soft to the touch and make a space feel warm. Draping a faux fur throw or a chenille blanket on your sofa makes it look like a cosy place to curl up. And if your feet get cold, there’s a blanket within easy reach, or try swapping out some of your cushion covers for ones with textured fabric.

Paint a dark colour

Using dark paint on the walls can help to make a room feel cosy…just like light paint helps to make it feel open and airy. So if you’re going for the snug, warm feel, try going darker. If you really want to go all out, paint the ceiling dark too.

Hang curtains

As with textured fabrics (see panel opposite), adding curtains to your space will help to soften it and make it feel more cosy. This is part of the reason canopy beds appeal to so many people. Installing curtains all the way across the wall gives a similar feel to the room in general.

Provide comfortable seating

This may seem a little obvious, but it’s hard to have a cosy room if there aren’t any comfortable spots to sit. To me, there is nothing more inviting than a chair (even the cat thinks this is the best seat in the house!) However, a comfortable sofa, love seat or chair will also work. Adding an ottoman that people can put their feet up on is an extra bonus.

Gardening tips for


Get digging!

The most important thing to bear in mind is good initial preparation - after all you will want the hedge to grow thick and fast, and not become bare at the base. Start by digging out a trench the length of the hedge, at least 18 inches wide and 12 inches deep.

There are plenty of great looking violas, pansies and heathers with their bright colours to brighten up those dull winter days. So let us now create some colour and interest to take us through those periods until the spring.

Buy your bulbs for spring

Talking of spring, if you haven’t already bought your bulbs, now is a great time. There is a huge selection in garden centres and nurseries of tulips varying in colour from white through to nearly black, not forgetting those gorgeous reds, oranges, stripes, short, tall, early and late varieties. It is good to look out for all the species as well. There are many small species of crocus, iris, tulipa, alliums, anemone, fritillaria, lily-of-the-valley and plenty of other exciting bulbs. The prices vary depending on what you are looking for, but they are not always as expensive as you think to plant up the odd container on the patio or by the front door.

Fork over the base of the trench if you are on heavy clay soil and incorporate plenty of organic matter such as well-rotted manure, compost, composted bark or planting compost. Mix the excavated soil with lots more organic matter and even some bonemeal or controlledrelease fertiliser, and refill the trench - firming the soil as you go. Before planting, water the plants well - either give container plants a good soaking or place bare-rooted plants in a bucket of water for half an hour or so. Then it’s just a matter of planting at the right distance apart: most types should be planted 18 inches apart although conifers and more vigorous types can be planted two to three feet apart. For a really thick barrier you can even plant a double staggered row. To help ensure a bushier hedge, trim back sideshoots and even cut off the top couple of inches of deciduous hedging plants and privet. After planting, water in well and be prepared to water during dry spells for the first year. Adding a sprinkling of fertiliser over the soil in the spring will help make growth even stronger.

If you use established planting that is already in there, and maybe add heathers, euonymous, or skimmia japonica to give colour all season long. Bulbs shooting up from dwarf narcissi in late February through to late flowering tulips and narcissi in early May, you can create your own wonderful colour creation.

Creating a boundary

Hedges are the perfect solution for providing a natural looking boundary to a garden; they are more colourful and interesting than a fence and are perfect for encouraging wildlife into the garden. There are lots of plants suitable for providing a hedge, barrier or screen - whether you want evergreen or deciduous, formal or informal. Now is a great time to plant a hedge, especially if you want an inexpensive one. There is a wide range available bare-rooted such as beech, hawthorn and hornbeam plants, which are less than those bought in pots. But, if you want an evergreen hedge, then these plants are only available in containers.


It is hard to beat the value of conifers for the winter garden. There are so many colours and shapes from the pencil-like Juniperus scopulorum Skyrocket to the spreading pines, firs and the ground covering prostrate junipers. There are types that grow from several inches high to several feet according to your garden. There are also dozens of evergreen shrubs which, like conifers, not only come in various shades of green but there are ever-yellow and ever-silver as well as variegated types. The latter will certainly help lift the spirits on dull and dark days.

Motoring review


The new Audi Q8 SUV previewed

Expect the best of the best from Audi’s new luxury 4x4, including hybrid power and a hot RS Q8 model.

When it goes on sale in 2018, the Audi Q8 will sit close to the top of the luxury SUV tree, where it will compete with the Porsche Panamera, the Bentley Bentayga, the Range Rover and the forthcoming Lamborghini Urus. It will usurp the A8 saloon as Audi’s flagship, and while the Q8 you see here will be the core model, Audi will almost certainly offer a powerful RS Q8 in time. Seen here in our exclusive images, the RS Q8 should produce about 600bhp. Expect it to come suitably adorned with a hard-hitting bodykit and vast alloy wheels, as well as lowered suspension for a more menacing stance and greater cornering stability.

The Q8 has been previewed a number of times, both in standard guise and in ‘warm’ Q8 Sport Concept form. The Sport Concept may well morph into an SQ8 model, which would sit between the Q8 and the expected RS Q8. The Sport Concept has a 444bhp 3.0-litre petrol engine, with an additional electric motor boosting power to 469bhp. Like the latest A8, we expect each and every Q8 to have a hybrid setup, with the ‘standard’ model likely to produce around 438bhp –

enough to propel it from 0-62mph in 5.4 seconds. It should come as no surprise to learn that Audi is broadening its SUV range. The German carmaker already offers four ‘Q’ SUV models, against BMW’s five ‘X’ cars, and Mercedes’ five ‘GL’ SUVs. Given it’s easier to engineer profitability into luxurious, expensive vehicles, it’s no wonder Audi is aiming high with the Q8 – although in fairness the dinky Q2 caters for SUV customers on more relatable budgets.

Motoring review

October Audi Q8 design

The Q8 takes up roughly the same amount of road space as the current Audi Q7 - it’s over five metres long, with three metres between its front and rear wheels. It sits 40mm lower, though, and is distinguished by its lower roofline and sharply angled rear end. This should lend it an SUV-coupe air - something that was echoed by the Q8 concept being fitted with four, rather than five seats. While the Q8 may become available as a five-seater by the time it arrives in showrooms, Audi is likely to leave carrying seven people to the Q7. Like the new Audi A8, the Q8 will feature Audi’s next generation of interior design. A wraparound dashboard graces the Q8 Concept’s interior and showcases a “new control and display concept”, and it will come festooned with technology and infotainment systems. The latest in self-driving and protective technology is expected to feature, with Audi likely to be putting its recent tie-up with tech company NVIDIA to good use.

Audi Q8 pricing There’s no official word on pricing for the production Audi Q8, but as it’s going to be Audi’s new flagship, a starting price of £70,000 seems likely. If an SQ8 variant is offered, add £20,000 to that figure, while any RS Q8 is likely to be closer to £100,000 - before options.

Money saving tips Your Home

Your mortgage is the big one. Most people spend a THIRD of their income on mortgage payments but savings can be made, especially if you took your mortgage out when interest rates were much higher. Based on a £150K mortgage you can save over £1700 a year. Take a one minute mortgage check at and then speak to fee-free brokers London and Country on 0800 9530591 Also DO prep for the new, harder mortgage application process. Speak to a fee-free mortgage broker to see what mortgage is best for you.

Only do your washing with a full load – about 90% of the energy used for washing clothes is for heating the water, so by doing full loads you’ll be using less water per item saving £63 per year (£5.25 per month). Hang your washing outside to dry whenever possible and avoid the tumble dryer during the summer months – SAVE £15 (£1.25 per month) off the average energy bill. Actually understanding how much energy you use can make a MASSIVE difference to your bills. By using an energy monitor, you can clearly see what you are using and when. You may notice that leaving your telly on standby is costing you £35 a year or that your child’s computer is wasting energy. Being armed with this sort of knowledge can really help you change your behaviour and reduce your consumption. We like the energy monitor from OWL. Switch to LED lighting. Using a 7W LED bulb (equivalent to 50W halogen bulb) for four hours a day would typically save you £8.97 a year PER BULB.


75% of people overpay by almost £200 per year because they’re not on the right mobile phone contract. A great way to check if you are getting a good deal is to go to where they will analyse your call usage, texts and internet use and then match you with the right deal to save you cash.

Fixing mistakes made by cowboy builders and decorators has cost Brits £3.7 billion in the past five years. To guarantee you are getting a good tradesman then there are three golden rules – check references, check qualifications, check your paperwork. The Trading Standards website is a great place to look as it has a thorough audit process and invites feedback. If you are a member of Which? then you can also log on and look for local recommendations.

Water & Energy

A well fitted hot water tank jacket could save you around £40 a year, even more if you heat your water electrically. It will cost you £15 and is easy to fit yourself. Being more efficient with your water is something that you have control over. You can reduce the water you use at home in loads of clever little ways. The Energy Saving Trust has an AMAZING tool that works out where YOU can cut your water bills.

You pay more for a faster broadband connection. The average download speed across the UK is 17.8mbps, don’t pay for more than you can actually get. Check the speed available to you in your area with a speed checker. For the biggest saving, you should bundle your phone and digital TV with broadband into one package from just one provider and save up to £413 a year.

Making money

Did you know that you can make money by renting out your stuff? You could earn £15 a day renting out your lawnmower, £6 a day renting out a bike and even £20 a day renting out a designer handbag! Well, you can rent out pretty much ANYTHING (so long as it is legal!) from your car, through to DIY equipment, DVDs, clothes and pushchairs and you can earn some handy extra cash.

Use eco balls in your washing machine, a replacement for detergent. These will last 1000 washes and save £255 per 1000 washes (£72 per year, £6 per month) and it gets your washing clean – we use them!

10 trick or treat safety tips After your little princesses and mini cowboys are all dressed and their trick or treat bags are firmly in hand, it’s time to go over some trick or treat safety tips so you and your children will have an enjoyable and safe Halloween experience.

1. Go during safe trick or treat times

You don’t have to wait until it is pitch-black outside. The ideal time is after an early dinner and just before dusk when you can keep better track of your children and are able to see others you may encounter on the street. Besides, the first person there gets the best sweets!

2. Steer clear of masks

While masks are a fun part of many costumes, wearing one can sometimes impair a child’s vision. By using face paint, it is easier for your child to see where they are going and they won’t have to lift their mask when speaking to someone. If your child absolutely must wear a mask, make sure it’s a snug fit, is ventilated and has large enough eyeholes so they can see all around them.

3. Be visible

Try to choose costumes that are brightly coloured so that they are easier to see in the dark. If they really want a dark costume, apply some reflective strips. Glow sticks or glow necklaces also aid visibility.

4. Never go alone

9. Say “no”!

If your children are old enough to go out in a group without you, be sure to designate a time for their return. Teach them to say “no” if a stranger offers them a lift in their car or to take them to a Halloween Party.

10. Taste-testing patience

Make sure your little goblins know that trick or treating is for gathering sweets, not eating them as they receive them. If they’re tempted to have a taste before you’ve had a chance to inspect it, pack a goody bag with some of your own sweets so they have something to snack on if they can’t wait until they get home.

Trick or treat checklist Costume check Flashlight (with extra batteries) Reflector strips or glow stick Trick or treating route Return home and/or meet-up time Emergency identification info Sticking plasters Bottled water Extra house key Mobile phone

Make sure children are accompanied by an adult at all times. Discreetly adding some identification information to their costume or on a bracelet will help if they happen to wander off.

5. Walking tips

Be sure that your children understand simple traffic rules, such as stopping and looking both ways before crossing the road. Inform your children that road safety rules still apply.

6. Only knock on doors that you know

Encourage your children to only call on homes where they know the inhabitants. If a home is dark or has no Halloween decorations, this is one to avoid!

7. Don’t go inside

Remind your little ones that they should never enter anybody’s home while trick-or-treating. If the homeowner is persistent, inform them to simply turn and walk away.

8. Stay on track

It might be tempting to take a short cut through an alley or back lane, but that can be unsafe. Stay on streets and in areas that are well lit with plenty of people around.

Easy to make children’s recipe Mini roll bats What you’ll need

● Pack of chocolate covered mini rolls. ● White chocolate buttons (broken into pieces). ● Chocolate to melt. ● Grease proof paper. ● Pen/pencil. ● Piping bag (or a sandwich bag if you don’t have piping bags, works just the same).

● Draw the outline of a bat wing onto grease proof paper (as many times as you need (1 for each mini roll). ● Turn the paper over so you don’t get the ink/pencil on your food! ● Melt the chocolate (in the microwave) 20 seconds at a time, then stir, 20 seconds, stir etc until melted (if you do it too long it will go lumpy). ● Put the melted chocolate into a piping bag & cut a small hole to let it run out (if you haven’t got piping bags put the chocolate into a corner of a sandwich bag & cut the corner off leaving a small hole for it to come out).

● Pipe the chocolate around the edge of the wing drawing & then squiggle it over to make it look lacy – don’t make it to thin or it will break. ● Leave to cool a little & then put the mini roll in the middle of the wing before it is completely dry. ● Don’t panic if you miss, just add some melted chocolate to the back of the mini roll to stick it on. ● Put two quarters of white buttons on for eyes (with melted chocolate & add dots for pupils). ● Put two small pieces of white buttons on for fangs. ● Leave to dry (in the fridge if you like). ● VERY CAREFULLY peel away from the grease proof paper and stand up.

Your Horoscopes


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The Aries Horoscope for October indicates that you could be faced with some misunderstandings which could perplex you and cause you sleepless nights. At work, you might feel unsettled. In your relationships, you could feel that the flow of communication is not as forthcoming as it should be. You may need to sit down with your closest companions and colleagues and engage in frank discussions which will ultimately clear the air and restore harmony.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Relationships will be uppermost in your mind in October. A younger person in the family may need your help and support. It is possible that you may have to make some important financial decisions which will require a step-by-step approach involving detailed planning and considerable forethought. Avoid someone who may try to manipulate your thinking and put words into your mouth. This is not a month to be tardy or leave anything to chance.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

This is an extremely happy Horoscope time for Geminis and you will enjoy being with your loved ones, family and friends. You will have a very busy social life with lots of engagements. For those in established partnerships, there will be intense sexual intimacy and special shared moments where you will both feel like stepping away from the whirl of social events and let the rest of the world go by.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Watch out for health issues, your October Horoscope interpretation suggests. Don’t ignore any pain related to your shoulder, to your liver/kidneys or your intestines. If you suffer pain or discomfort in any of these areas, don’t suffer in silence or be afraid to consult a doctor. It may be nothing serious, but a change of routine or avoidance of stressful situations may be all that’s needed to correct things. You may also need to think more seriously about getting more exercise to maintain your levels of fitness as well as a healthy weight.

LEO (July 23- August 22)

You may need to use your diplomatic skills in family matters, your Leo indicators for October tell you. There could be some issues which can only be sorted out by opening up the channels of communication. As a result, you may not like what you hear. However, it’s not a month for tantrums or even for arguing a point; rather, take time out to really listen to others and act upon what is said.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You may overspend this month without realising it. It could be an expensive splurge which you will regret in the cold light of day. Your love-life may seem erratic if you are single. If you are in a partnership, you may fall out over a minor issue that causes hurtful words or arguments. Try not to dwell on words said in haste or in anger. Forgive and forget is the best advice.

Find out what’s in the stars for you this month

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Watch your finances this month - you may well have to tighten your belt. There could be an unexpected bill that needs immediate payment. This will make you shudder because you will feel as though you have been ripped off. You may feel wary of spending money and you will be very careful, checking and double-checking invoices. One of your direct debit agreements may have raised the payments without your knowledge, for example, or you may have overlooked the notification informing you of it.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Try not to make any foolhardy financial decisions. You might be attracted to an investment proposition, but be sure to do your research before you sign anything. Think twice before you part with any of your hard-earned cash. The October Horoscope for Scorpio warns that extreme caution is needed. Only fools rush in and live to regret it afterwards. A little prudence will ensure that your finances remain in a healthy state.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You are likely to be tuned into your inner self and personal aspirations this month. If you are spiritually inclined, October could be very significant for you. You will have a sense of knowingness and you will trust your intuition. You may have a strong feeling you have been somewhere before or met a new connection in a past life. Whatever this month brings, you will stay true to yourself and not be swayed by others.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You may feel down in the mouth at the start of this month, but by the end of it you will be smiling again because there will be good news on the job front. It could be a promotion or a raise in salary, but whatever it is there will be cause to celebrate and enjoy the moment. You have worked really hard this year and now you will be reaping the rewards and enjoying the fruits of your labours.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You will be engaged in some sort of charity work that allows you to help others through a hobby, the arts or a group situation where you will prove to be a good role model. People will rally to the cause and you will do a lot of useful work for which you will receive considerable public recognition. This may also lead to a re-discovery of the creative side of your personality which has been lying dormant for far too long.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

There could be some fretful times at work for Pisceans this month, though there’s nothing that you won’t be able to take in your stride. You will have a little more money to play with, but do take care to stay away from buying things you don’t really need or want. Try to learn from past mistakes and, if possible, save more than you spend. If you are able to do this, it will be a lesson well learnt.
