Greetings readers, and now Christmas is over, it appears it’s Easter already! At least that’s what all those tempting treats on the supermarket shelves are telling me. I’m holding firm though and following Spencer’s advice on page 151. Now’s the time I always plan the next 12 month’s holidays, so we’ve pulled together a nice selection of places to go in 2012 on page 80. We’ve also got fashion, recipes, property news, motoring and more, plus 2 great interviews in this issue, Crime fighting beauty Kelly Reilly on

page 34 and Ralph Fiennes on page 110. Not forgetting our amazing competition to win a pair of tickets to see THE WANTED at the BIC in March! Entering is easy, just like our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/housemagdorset and we’ll pick one lucky winner in a few weeks. What are you waiting for?! Until next time... Emma Harman Editor

An increase in demand for all types of properties within a 5-mile radius of Blandford is reported by Jessica Morley; in charge of lettings across the Blandford and Wimborne areas. To help cope with the constant demand Jessica is urging landlords to come forward to discuss the letting potential of their property. She adds: “There is still a great need for flats in Blandford town centre; the converted Georgian properties are sought after for their character and convenience. Small family homes in Bryanston Hills, Badbury Heights and Westbury are always popular with families, for their great location for transport and excellent value for money.”

Jessica adds that any landlord who provides a tenant with clean and comfortable surroundings will reap rewards. Even a well-presented, low maintenance garden can make all the difference in helping a prospective tenant make a decision between one home or another. Jessica is appealing to landlords to come forward with their properties to let. Landlords who are unable to sell or considering going abroad should call in to discuss the potential of letting their property. Contact Jessica Morley on 01258 489049 or jessica. morley@goadsby.com

FRETTENS SOLICITORS AND TIME TO REVIEW YOUR MARTINS SOLICITORS JOIN MORTGAGE, SAYS FORCES IN BROCKENHURST CONNELLS Sue Martin and the Partners at Frettens Solicitors are delighted to announce the merger of Frettens Solicitors with Brockenhurst firm Martins Solicitors.

28

The office will initially be known as Frettens Solicitors inc Martins Solicitors. Sue Martin, Partner at Martins Solicitors, will become a Partner of Frettens and will continue to work from the Brockenhurst office with her existing team. Sue began her legal career in London, before opening Martins Solicitors in 1984, and has vast local knowledge and legal experience, particularly in property matters. Commenting on the acquisition by Frettens, Sue says “I have admired the Frettens brand and reputation for a number of years and I am thrilled to join their team. I believe their ethos, technology and approach to client care complements the quality of work that we have always

offered at Martins Solicitors. We are delighted to be joined by our new colleagues from the specialist departments in Christchurch who will be able to meet the needs of New Forest clients in our Brockenhurst office.” Frettens Partner Lee Young (formerly of New Forest firms Moore Blatch and Clarke Willmott) will work alongside Sue in Brockenhurst to offer expert wills & tax advice. On behalf of the partnership, he comments “This in an excellent opportunity for Frettens; it demonstrates our progressive outlook and builds on our development since our 2007 New Milton launch. We are delighted to join forces with such a wellrespected firm to continue to build on the outstanding reputation they have earned in the Forest. We look forward to offering a full range of legal services to the Brockenhurst community.” Visit www.frettens.co.uk for further information.

Now could be the ideal time to review your mortgage, according to estate agency Connells. With household budgets stretched tighter than ever and little sign of economic change this year, the local agent in Poole is urging homeowners to come and speak to its mortgage advisor to see whether an alternative mortgage product would be better for them. “With interest rates remaining at historic lows and many more mortgages now available from lenders*, it’s a great time to review your current product to see if you could save money,” says Melvin Parker, Mortgage Services Consultant for Connells. “Many people continue with their existing mortgage arrangement because they think they won’t get a better deal,” Melvin continues. “The number of mortgages on the market has gone up dramatically since this time last year, so it is worth taking the time to review your

finances and see if there is a better option available.” Connells estate agency recently hit a hat trick when it scooped the Gold prize for ‘Best Financial Services’ at the Estate Agency of the Year Awards for the third year in a row. The judges of this category commented on Connells continued investment into improving its mortgage services and in-depth knowledge of the market. Connells also picked up Gold in the ‘Best Large Estate Agency’ category for its exemplary services and commitment to customers. Connells offers mortgage and remortgage advice through its network of branches and has access to over 1,200 different mortgage products, including some exclusive deals not available elsewhere. To speak to a Mortgage Advisor, please call the Poole branch on 01202 673977 or email: poole@ connells.co.uk.

THE LOWKEY LIFE OF REILLY Kelly Reilly is back as DI Anna Travis in a new series of Lynda La Plante’s Above Suspicion on ITV1 on Monday, January 9. The red-headed actress talks about playing the feisty heroine and staying away from the spotlight

Kelly Reilly in sitting in a sparse, windowless room in a crisp white shirt and tight black skirt, her red hair piled up on top of her head. She’s surrounded by a pack of journalists asking ever more personal questions, which she’s deflecting with aplomb. Reilly’s just been filming a scene as DI Anna Travis, her character in Lynda La Plante’s Above Suspicion, and it’s appropriate that she’s discussing the new series in her interrogation room. From her lack of Hollywood ambition to her thoughts on whether women can really have it all, the 34-year-old is always courteous and gives just enough of herself away before gently steering the conversation back to the ITV crime drama. Silent Scream, the fourth outing for Travis and DCS James Langton, played by Ciaran Hinds, revolves around the murder of actress Amanda Delaney, who is on the cusp of international superstardom when she’s found stabbed in her bed. It transpires that Amanda has a shady past and several former lovers and flatmates are in the frame for her murder, as well as the cast and crew of the last film she was working on. But when Travis and DCI Mike Lewis (Shaun Dingwall) have to go on set to interview them, Travis is completely unfazed by the celebrity world. “Everyone else seems to be a bit starstruck, but she’s so practical,” says Reilly. “It’s weird, the things that make her feel uneasy are personal, emotional things to do with her. But a famous director on a movie set, she’s just like, ‘What’s all the fuss about?’” Compared to the fictional Amanda Delaney, Reilly has never actively sought the limelight, considering herself to be an actress rather than a celebrity.


“It’s a frightening, invasive world,” she says. “You don’t have any privacy left if you become famous and I want no part of it. I go shopping in Waitrose every week and nobody comes up to me, I can do anything I want. “Sometimes I get recognised. If I was on the cover of magazines every other week or doing any of the other things I could be doing, it would be hard, but I’m just not interested.” What she is interested in, however, is Travis’s career progression. “She’s on a professional and personal journey. There’s always something new and, as an actor, it provides a challenge.” At the start of the new series, Travis is being fast-tracked for promotion by her boss DCI Sam Power (Ray Fearon). But the murder soon takes over all her waking hours. “She gets so obsessed with every single inquiry she’s on that she doesn’t have time for anything else - you see everyone else going home and having a social life, but she lives and breathes work,” says Reilly. “She’s so engrossed in these awful cases, that’s where her energy lies. She has no boyfriend, no real life outside work - it’s a bit lonely and sad.” Early into the inquiry, Power is made Commander, so Langton takes control and suddenly he and Travis are working very closely again, which throws up old tensions between them. “He’s protective and concerned for her wellbeing as a human being, not just a police officer. He’s not trying to bring her down, but while she’s so busy trying to climb the ranks at a young age, she’s missing out on life experience.” Reilly, thankfully, has no such problems switching off. “I’m just playing a role, then I go home and learn my lines. It’s with me for six weeks, maybe a bit longer, but it’s not the same obsession of solving a case,” she says, laughing. Born and bred in Chessington, London, Reilly’s father was a police constable for 25 years and her mother a part-time secretary at a hospital. She caught the acting bug at school

and worked her way up through the ranks of supporting roles on TV and in films before she won the part of DC Anna Travis in 2009. She grew up watching Dame Helen Mirren as Supt Jane Tennison in Lynda La Plante’s Prime Suspect and won her first TV role aged just 17 in Prime Suspect: Inner Circles in 1995. She smiles at the mention and says: “It does feel like I’ve come full circle - I remember not having a clue but loving it. It’s a tremendous story for me. I feel very lucky.” Prime Suspect, for Reilly, set the bar for TV crime drama. “I can’t believe I can remember it so strongly, it was just so brilliant,” she says. “It was the collaboration of the story and the writing, and seeing all those estates up in Manchester - we’d never seen anything like that. It was wonderfully dark and painful.” And although she describes Travis as “Tennison’s rookie niece”, she thinks they’re a world apart as characters. “She exists in her own world brilliantly - why would Lynda want to turn Travis into that? The story with Travis is about seeing someone get there, whereas we saw Tennison up there, trying to find her way among the sexual politics. “Travis doesn’t come up against those problems, in fact she just goes, ‘Whatever’, hence the tight skirt and heels. It’s like ‘I’m a woman, so what?’ We’ve moved on. Now it’s about ambition, getting to the top and being the most successful we can, no matter what’s at the end of it.”

Now comes the question about whether women can really have it all, which Reilly answers with a volley of questions. “Can you have it all? I don’t know, it’s interesting isn’t it? I know women who’ve tried to do it, with family and kids and a husband and a home. They’re trying to run all that and be brilliant at their jobs, and they’re earning good money and are respected - but it comes at a price, doesn’t it?” And is the actress as ambitious as Travis? “No!” And with that, the rather enigmatic Reilly is back on set to carry on filming.

EXTRA TIME– KELLY REILLY • Kelly Reilly was born in Chessington on July 18, 1977. • She plays Mary Watson in Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, alongside Jude Law as Watson and Robert Downey Jr as Holmes. • She says her mum can’t watch Above Suspicion because it’s too gory. • She’s playing a heroin addict in the film Flight, with Denzel Washington, due to be released later this year. • Above Suspicion: Silent Scream on ITV1 every Monday night

RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT

Stuart Kennedy is delighted to announce his retirement after a long and successful career in estate agency, encompassing the most dramatic and satisfying period of change. After returning from London in 1980, having worked for a successful firm selling in Sloane Street as well as the Surrey provinces, it was a natural progression to returning to family roots in Lower Parkstone. Many happy and hilarious occasions have been experienced and shared with JM my personal assistant who, with a wicked sense of humour, has also provided loyal and constant support throughout. It is with fond memories he will remember these times. The market is changing again and with these new challenges, it is an appropriate time for him to bow out and allow another generation to embrace these opportunities. Godley Kennedy has maintained a high standard of professionalism and integrity and although this may have come at a price, the standard has been maintained throughout. This year will be the period of Stuart Kennedys departure and he looks forward to pursuing more field sports.

SHARRON CANNING MOVE ON RENTALS If you would like to be placed on our mailing list for up to date information on the latest legislations then please email Sharon@moveonrentals.com

Help, I need to carry out a Gas safety Certificate on my rented property, but the tenant keeps saying it is inconvenient. As a Landlord it is my duty to ensure a current certificate is always in place. Can I go in with my keys with the Gas Engineer as long as I give the minimum 24 hours notice? This is a very common question I get asked, whether it be for the Gas Safety Certificate as in your situation or general repairs or viewings. Most tenancies have written in to permit access after 24 hours notice, however this is for emergencies only (and that means something serious, such as a fire). A tenancy gives exclusive possession of a property to the tenant and they have the right to ‘quiet enjoyment’ during their tenancy, a term or concept which is implied in all Tenancy Agreements. It does not mean that tenants have to be quiet or enjoy themselves it means the Landlord should leave tenants to live in the property in peace. The tenants’ right to keep everyone out of his property will override and access can only be gained by invitation or acceptance from the tenant. This can be particularly frustrating to a landlord when they are looking to gain access for viewings in the final month or as in your case trying to access the property to conduct a legal requirement by you the landlord. You can apply to the courts for an injunction to gain access The general rules are if after three attempts on trying to gain access you have still not been able to gain entry and you can prove this (copies of letters) and you have contacted health and safety and reported the matter you will not be prosecuted as failure to have a Gas Safety Certificate in place can lead to a £5000 fine. This is probably not what you want to hear, however the law is strict on this. Under no circumstances try to access the property with your own keys without agreement from the tenant.

NEW YEAR, NEW LOOK HOME Your home may look a little bare now it’s free of decorations - but now’s the perfect time to view it anew. Get a fresh deco strategy for 2012 with advice from interiors experts.


THE HOLIDAY’S OVER AND WHILE IT’S COMMON TO FEEL YOU’RE SUFFERING FROM A LITTLE TOO MUCH PARTYING, THERE’S ANOTHER OFTEN OVERLOOKED SYMPTOM - A DECOR HANGOVER. Once you’ve disposed of that sparkling tree and taken down colourful cards, even the best of rooms can look dull and bare by comparison. Winter’s harsh light can expose past-their-best colour schemes and furnishings, too. “Don’t suffer from decor doldrums. Instead, take this as the perfect time to look at rooms afresh and decide whether they really work for you,” says Clare Nolan, stylist and interiors author, whose new book, Making A House Your Home, is packed with inspiration and clever tips to help with a New Year revamp. “Step away from questions of style and think about what it is you actually do at home. How do you spend your time? “Making changes to your home so it fits your lifestyle can be just as important as choosing the colour of the walls. So if you love a hobby, you should be trying to make a space where you can enjoy it or, if you entertain a lot, the dining area should be a feature.” To revamp a home, you may only need to rearrange furniture, which could also open up a new area. By repositioning artwork, mirrors, rugs and lighting, you can create different focal points and change the atmosphere. “Avoid the knee-jerk reaction of chucking out and buying new,” says Nolan. “When relocating things, start with anything that isn’t working hard or earning its keep in its current position, but think outside the box. “A bed quilt could become a chair cover, a tablecloth or even a wall hanging. A chair could double as a bedside table, and a bench transform into a console table. Get creative!”

Renovate & revive

Makeovers don’t have to be confined to TV programmes and DIY experts. An old piece of furniture can be given a facelift easily. “It’s really quite astonishing just what a difference paint can make,” Nolan says. “An old-fashioned piece of brown furniture that you wouldn’t look twice at, can be elevated to perfectly chic with a couple of coats of solid colour.” STYLIST TRICKS: You can paint almost anything you love the shape of - the surface finish and colour won’t matter. Simply apply a specialist primer to suit it, whether plastic, metal or wood. “Painting and wallpapering a piece can be truly stylish,” Nolan says. “You can wallpaper drawer fronts, add a coat of varnish to protect the finish and paint the frame. Add new handles and you have an individual, distinctive feature for little cost.”

Colour me beautiful

“Colour has a huge impact on the mood of a home,” says Nolan. “It’s a powerful tool and has the ability to make your heart sing or sink, so repainting a few walls could be just the boost your home and wellbeing needs for a new year.” In a small home, she advises using a palette of tonal colours, which are only slightly darker or lighter than each other, to make the space feel bigger. STYLIST TRICKS: When you’re choosing the background colour for a room, usually the wall paint, consider the amount of light a room gets. “If bright light’s the problem, opt for deeper, cooler colours such as blues and greens, and avoid warm colours,” advises Nolan. “If you lack natural light, either embrace it and create a den-like space using moody colours, or maximise the light by painting with light neutrals and using reflective finishes. By contrast, matt surfaces absorb light and make colour appear denser and more intense.”

Kill the clutter

Dejunking and decluttering can be painful, says Nolan, but as well as giving you space, it will also allow your decorative items to star and earn their place in the home. “Your mantra should be ‘use it, love it, or lose it’,” she says. “If you really can’t bear to part with something and you’ve got enough storage space, consider having winter and summer looks. Just pack things away and bring them back into use when the season changes.” STYLIST TRICKS: Sacrificing a whole wall to storage may seem excessive, but once fitted, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it, says Nolan. “Don’t overlook the potential of lighting in cupboards. Recessed spotlights in cabinets and strip lights under shelves all shed light just where you need it,” she says. “Painting the inside of cupboards helps too - a bright, zingy shade can turn it into a real feature.”

Coffee table chic

Never overlook the power of the coffee table, advises Nolan, as it’s one of the most important pieces in a living room. “Everything circulates around it and it’s the equivalent of that other essential - the kitchen table,” she points out. “But don’t think it has to be a neat square or rectangle. It doesn’t even have to be a table a blanket box, trunk or even a few wine crates screwed together will work fine.” STYLIST TRICKS: If you have the room, go for an oversized upholstered ottoman or large footstool which can double as extra seating. “Harden and level out the soft, squishy surfaces of upholstered coffee tables with a pile of books or an oversized tray,” she suggests. “Soften a wooden table with a throw. Fold it so it creates a runner that you can lay across the middle and it will have the advantage of hiding any spills or stains.” Utilise its decorative potential by grouping treasured items in clusters, but ensure they’re easily portable by standing them on a tray.

Clever kitchen

Kitchens are the hub of a home, but they can feel overcrowded and unwelcoming unless there’s careful planning. “If you’re going to use the kitchen as a snug, or informal playroom and TV room as well, furnish it as you would other rooms,” she advises. “Bring in decorative elements to soften its functional kitchen aspects. While lighting needs to be practical, there’s no reason why you can’t have a chandelier or a sculptural floor lamp as well.” STYLIST TRICKS: A calendar pinned to a wall is fine, but a chalkboard wall for notes, lists and dates is more effective and can make a focal point. “Use blackboard paint to paint the area you want,” says Nolan. “Your chalkboard will look much more impressive when it’s wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling.” In a small kitchen, replace wall-hung units with rows of open shelves, which will look less overpowering than closed cupboards and ensure everything is easily visible. “Think outside the box when it comes to groceries,” she suggests. “Fruit and vegetables make instantly gorgeous displays when stored in cake stands or piled into clear vases, and even a bunch of herbs can look as pretty as a bunch of flowers.”

LIVING IN LEASEHOLD FLATS

SIMON CLARKE WAVE 105 FM

As the purchaser, or owner, of a leasehold flat, it is in your own interest to understand the legal nature of the ownership. What exactly do you own and what are the associated rights and liabilities?

I walked into my local grocery shop last week and I felt that I had ‘missed’ a number of calendar months. I was shocked to see Easter confectionary on sale, from fondant-filled eggs, hot cross buns to chocolate bunnies. It was all displayed pride of place above the self-service check-out tills. One large retailer actually started stocking Easter products on Boxing Day, chicks with “Happy Easter” labels were fighting mince pies and leftover Christmas cake for shelf space.

What is leasehold? Leasehold flats can be in purpose-built blocks, in converted houses or above commercial or retail premises. Leasehold ownership of a flat is simply a long tenancy, the right to occupation and use of the flat for a long period - the ‘term’ of the lease. This will usually be for 99 or 125 years and the flat can be bought and sold during that term. The term is fixed at the beginning and so decreases in length year by year. Thus, if it were not for inflation, the value of the flat would diminish over time until the eventual expiry of the lease, when the flat returns to the landlord (although an assured tenancy would then become a possibility). The leasehold ownership of a flat usually relates to everything within the four walls of the flat, including floorboards and plaster to walls and ceiling, but does not usually include the external or structural walls. The structure and common parts of the building and the land it stands on are usually owned by the freeholder, who is also the landlord. The freeholder is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the building. The costs for doing so are recoverable through the service charges and billed to the leaseholders. The landlord can be a person or a company, including a local authority or a housing association. It is also quite common for the leaseholders to own the freehold of the building, through a residents’ management company, effectively becoming their own landlord. Furthermore under right to manage, the lessees may not own the freehold but are able to manage the building as if they were the landlord. Napier Management Services manage a whole range of residential blocks in the South East and South West of the Country.

We haven’t even had Valentine’s Day yet! We had only just entered January! We were yet to take down the Christmas decorations! But the retailers felt justified in starting to promote the next festival in the Christian calendar. I know that supermarkets just want to react to the demands of customers, but surely no one can seriously be wanting to scoff mini-sized chocolate Easter eggs one day after the Christmas day feast. Without sounding too much like a humbug, I feel it is such a shame that consumerism has taken over in such an aggressive way to the point where we are sick of the sight of traditional treats months before the actual celebration. As a closet mince pie addict, I was thrilled to see boxes of the fruity-filled delicacies on the shelves of my local supermarket in August, only to scoff boxes and boxes by the time December hit. Therefore, by Christmas even the sight of one made me feel queasy. Will the same happen to me this year with Easter goodies? Second to mince pies, hot cross buns are my favourite tea-time treat; toasted, smeared in butter and served with a strong mug of tea. Ever since my younger-years I have looked forward every year to March when I can sink my teeth into my first bun. Thankfully, still feeling rather full of mince pies I have managed, at the the time of writing, to resist the temptation of buying a pack of them.

For further information, or to arrange a no obligation meeting, please contact Suzanne Ivers BA (Hons) MRICS AIRPM. Contact us on 01425 650656. Visit www.napiermanagement.co.uk

At the end of last month’s column, I wrote that I would not be making up a New Year’s Resolution for 2012. Since writing, I have been starting to consider giving something up for the Lent period. In the past I have given up chocolate and cakes, with the thought of the pleasure of an Easter day gorge on hot cross buns and Easter eggs ahead of me when the cravings got really bad. With all the Easter produce on the shelves already, I could gorge myself silly before Lent actually starts! As much as I enjoy the celebrations of Christmas and Easter, I am sure most would agree that restricting the paraphernalia on sale in the supermarkets and grocery shops to just a few weeks before the event would be better. You can catch Simon on Wave 105 weekdays from 1pm – 4pm and on the Sunday breakfast show until 10am.

Where to go in

2012

Whether you're a traveller in search of new horizons, or a holidaymaker looking for a family break with a difference, we round up the most exciting destinations for 2012.


The Arctic Best for...adventurous families

Why go now? Viewers of the BBC's Frozen Planet series with David Attenborough can't fail to have been mesmerised by the dazzling midnight sun-strewn icebergs of the Arctic. Spitsbergen, the last stop before the North Pole, is rising in popularity as an expedition option for tourists, with the promise of dramatic scenery and wildlife, including polar bears. As one of the most remote regions of the world, it's not easy or cheap - to get there; flights via Oslo and big connection gaps can make journeys 10 hours or more each way, and even short cruises can come in at £2,500 with flights. But it's undoubtedly a trip of a lifetime you'll never forget. With tour operator Exodus now offering a family-friendly programme, it's also an educational alternative to Santa's Lapland that's arguably a better investment all-round. Book it now: Exodus, the operator who hosted the Frozen Planet crew during the filming of the series, offers a new eightday Spitsbergen Family Adventure from £3,090 per adult and £2,790 per child (minimum age 10), departing August 1 . Flights are extra. Visit www.exodus.co.uk or call 0845 805 5219. :: For a shorter adult-only stay, Hurtigruten offers a five-night Polar Encounters voyage to Spitsbergen on selected dates in June, July and August, from £1,794pp (based on two sharing). Flights are extra and can be booked from £844pp. Visit www. hurtigruten.co.uk or call 0844 448 7601.


Vietnam Best for... grown-up backpackers

Peru Best for... history buffs

Myanmar Best for...culture shocks

Why go now? Opportunities for visiting Indochina have opened up thanks to the launch of a new direct flight route from London to Vietnam with Vietnam Airlines. Shaving seven hours off the flight time, visitors can now travel in greater comfort with increased possibility for 'power break' stays, making Vietnam a viable option for a two-week holiday. Although long-haul travel may seem like an extravagance in cash-strapped times, day-to-day living in Vietnam is actually very cheap; the Post Office rated it in the top three best destinations for value for money in its 2011 Long Haul Holiday Report. Travel back several centuries by visiting the world heritage town Hoi An, take a luxury cruise along the Mekong or have a suit made for pittance by a tailor in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly named Saigon). With 3,400km of sparkling coastline to choose from, beach lovers may also want to explore Vietnam as an alternative to Thailand.

Why go now? Last year marked a century since American archaeologist Hiram Bingham's discovery of Machu Picchu, but Peruvians would argue 2012 is the real year for celebration. At the end of 2011, the long-anticipated Casa Concha museum opened in Cusco, housing artefacts from the ancient Inca citadel, taken by Hiram Bingham 100 years ago. Coupled with the discovery of a new Inca trail to Machu Picchu, there's now more reason than ever to visit this historical site, recently named by the Huffington Post as the top place to see before you die. Two new hotel openings in Cusco also look likely to put the ancient Inca capital on every luxury traveller's map. Orient Express open the all-suite Palacio Nazarenas in June on the site of a former convent, while JW Marriott will open a property on the site of a colonial church. Both will have oxygenated rooms to help guests acclimatise to the 3,400m altitude. Food is also playing a big part in Peru's rising international profile, with Lima named by Frommers Guides as the top food destination to visit in 2012. All in all, it's enough to whet your appetite.

Why go now? Curious travellers have always had Myanmar (Burma) on their radar, but up until now the political situation has kept most visitors away.

Book it now: iKuoda Travel, based in Cusco, offers luxury tailor-made tours of Peru using local guides and comfortable transport. Visit www.kuodatravel.com to request a customised quote.

Book it now: WEXAS Travel offers a ninenight Saigon and Luxury Mekong itinerary, from £2,925pp, based on two sharing. Price includes direct flights with Vietnam Airlines, two nights at An Lam Saigon River, a sevennight cruise on the new 26-stateroom colonial cruiser The Jahan and domestic flights. Visit www.wexas.com or call 0845 643 6568. :: Travelbag offers eight nights at the 4* Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort and Spa (B&B basis) in Hoi An for £969pp. Price includes direct flights with Vietnam Airlines and internal flights. Book by January 30, 2012. Visit www.travelbag.co.uk or call 0871 703 4240.

Following the release of pro-democratic leader Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest and her subsequent seal of approval for tourism, however, tour operators predict this predominantly Buddhist south-east Asian country will be the place to go in 2012. Highlights include cruises along the Irrawaddy river and visits to picturesque pagodas, enchanting monasteries and forgotten hill stations. But the biggest allure is a country largely untouched by the outside world, with only a total of 9,000 hotel beds available. If you do want to travel responsibly, avoid using government-owned hotels and instead, invest your money in local enterprises. Book it now: Travel Indochina offers a nine-day Highlights Of Burma escorted group tour, covering Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake, from £1,045pp, including all accommodation, domestic flights and entrance fees. International flights are extra. Visit www.travelindochina. co.uk or call 01865 268 940. :: TransIndus offers a 14-day escorted group tour covering Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake and the ancient capital cities of Ava, Amarapura and Sagaing, from £2,495pp (based on two sharing) including B&B accommodation, flights, internal travel and sightseeing. Visit www.transindus.co.uk or call 020 8566 3739.

Southwold pier, Suffolk 82


Nantes, France Best for... creative endeavours

Why go now? From April 20-22, all eyes will be on Liverpool when French street theatre company Royal de Luxe will be bringing their Little Girl Giant to the city as part of commemorative celebrations for the sinking of Titanic. The creative team, who were responsible for halting London traffic in 2006 with their mechanical Sultan's Elephant, hail from Nantes, and their return to the UK is likely to ignite interest in this art-friendly French city. Visit their permanent workshop Les Machines de I'ile, where you'll find a carousel of fantastical creatures, and a smaller replica of their famous elephant. Their new three-tiered carousel of underwater creatures and sea ships will open this summer.

Iceland Best for... bargains

Why go now? Once considered one of the most expensive countries in the world, a financial crash in 2008 made this volcanic island in the North Atlantic ocean much more affordable. The news that easyJet will be launching flights from London Luton to Reykjavik on March 27, with returns from as low as £59, is further confirmation Iceland is now within the average holidaymaker's budget. Choose to enjoy a city break with a difference in quirky capital Reykjavik, take a dip in the famous geothermal Blue Lagoon, explore the island's rugged terrain, or attempt to see the northern hemisphere's greatest natural phenomenon - the Northern Lights. NASA predicts 2012 will

In 2012, the city will celebrate the final year of their Estuaire cultural festival, with more art installations popping up along the banks of the Loire estuary. A first-class - and free - jazz festival, Rendezvous de l'Erdre, also takes place at the beginning of September, with stages set up along and even floating in the river Erde.

Keeping a keen eye on gardening trends, landscaping designs and what the public will be growing in 2012 and beyond, he predicts that the ‘grow your own’ campaign will be as strong as ever this year. “Growing your own will still be popular,” he says, “and veg can be fitted into pockets on the flower border as well as on a dedicated veg patch. “Climbers on house walls are set to make a resurgence - who needs to look at boring brickwork? Just make sure that adequate wire or trellis supports are provided. “And repeat-flowering roses should be in every garden - in and among border perennials and shrubs - dedicated rose beds are now out,” he says. Despite heavy TV commitments, Titchmarsh will be out in his Hampshire garden this winter, preparing it for spring and beyond. “Getting my garden ready for spring is something that, like everybody else, I try to fit in around work. But it’s vital and my garden is my safety valve as well as my canvas. “My garden has good lines. Perspective, proportion and form are every bit as important to me as colour. There is lots of

evergreen topiary - clipped box and yew - but within the borders there are billowing banks of perennials, shrubs and roses. “I also have a wild flower meadow and a wildlife pond, providing great entertainment and a really good way of doing my bit for conservation. My garden is my sanctuary.” Winter offers time for planning new borders and allows gardeners time to do jobs little by little, he says. “The great thing about winter is that things move slowly in the garden and we have a chance to catch up. It’s not all about tidying, though there is some of that to do - border perennials to cut back (I like to leave some old foliage on in winter to help insects and birds), the last of the leaves to clear up and compost. “I lightly fork over the earth between plants in early spring, working in a sprinkling of blood, fish and bone and then, among shrubs in particular, I mulch with chipped bark to seal in moisture and keep down weeds.” Winter is a great time to take a long, hard look at the garden and work out where there are gaps in terms of interest, he reflects. Deciduous trees and shrubs are best planted now (provided the soil is not waterlogged or frozen) to give them a head start in spring, while perennials should be ordered now for planting in early spring so that the year can get off to a flying start. If the ground’s too hard or wet to work on, curl up on a winter’s evening with some seed catalogues and work out what

you want to grow this year, making your order quickly for the best selection, he suggests. If you’re creating a new veg plot, decide what you like eating and how much space such crops will take up. Then work out sowing and harvesting times so that the best use is made of your veg patch. “Order your seeds early and store them in a shoe-box in order of sowing times,” he advises. “Don’t sow too much of quick-maturing crops such as lettuce and radish at the same time, but make smaller sowings every few weeks to ensure a succession of tender young crops.” Indoors in January and February, you can sow geranium (pelargonium) seeds early - they take a long while to grow and will flower sooner if they are raised on a warm windowsill. Sprout seed potatoes so that they get off to a flying start when they are planted out later. At the Ideal Home Show 2012, Titchmarsh will be judging the Ideal Young Gardeners of the Year competition in which six colleges go head to head to create sustainable show gardens. “We need to do much more to promote horticulture as a career and to pass on our gardening skills. It is the most rewarding of jobs, tough at times, yes, but one which allows us to do our bit for the future of the planet.” The Ideal Home Show at London’s Earls Court runs from March 16 to April 1.

USEFUL TIPS ON HOW TO BEAUTIFY YOUR FRONT GARDEN READY FOR SPRING:

GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT HORSERADISH If you’ve loved horseradish with your roast beef this winter, why not try growing your own for an eyepoppingly hot accompaniment? Be warned, though, it’s an invasive perennial with deep roots that regrow when they’re broken off and, once established, can be as difficult to get rid of as ground elder. Grow it in a bottomless bucket sunk into the ground with its rim about an inch above the surface so that the roots don’t spread up there and to keep clumps in check. Only the root of horseradish is used.

BEST OF THE BUNCH MAHONIA This winter shrub provides interest in both colour and form, with its deep green, glossy, holly-like leaves and clusters of fragrant yellow flowers, followed by purple or black berries. Mahonia will grow happily in shade, providing not only scent but good architectural value and some of the upright varieties, such as M. x media ‘Charity’, which bears vivid yellow flower spikes in winter, make good barriers against intruders. Others, such as M. japonica, which grows to 2m, make useful plants for a woodland edge or shrub border in shade.

HOW TO BUY ROOTS Buy plants from specialist herb nurseries, or some seed companies offer roots in their autumn catalogues for planting up in late winter or early spring. Make a hole in the soil with a dibber and push a single root into it, thickest end uppermost, leaving the tip at ground level. Plant three roots about 60cm apart for a good clump. Let the plants grow for two years before harvesting. Dig up one plant in September or October, using the biggest roots for the kitchen and cutting off one of the thinner roots to replant.

WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK: TOP TIP Protect shrubs of borderline hardiness with layers of fleece or netting if frost threatens • Continue to take root cuttings of acanthus, Oriental poppy, phlox and verbascums. • Continue to keep bird feeders and troughs topped up with bird food and water. • Keep the strong, whippy shoots of apple tree prunings to support bulbs later in the season. • Bring container-grown shrubs such as viburnum, rose and deutzia into the greenhouse for forcing, maintaining a minimum temperature of 13C (55F). • Sow sweet peas in deep pots under glass. • Protect hairy-leaved alpines from winter wet with an open-ended cloche. • Plant bare-rooted roses as soon as they are delivered. • Firm down plants which have been lifted by frost. • Bring pots of herbs indoors for use in the kitchen. • Continue to harvest parsnips, kale and winter cabbages. • Plant shallots and Jerusalem artichokes. • Sow celery in a heated propagator.

FIENNES FIGHTS FOR HIS FUTURE Perhaps best known for his villainous turn as Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter films, Ralph Fiennes is set to show a different side as he stars in and makes his directorial debut in Coriolanus, opening in cinemas on Friday, January 20. The Oscar-nominated actor talks about his obsession for William Shakespeare and why he feels anxious he could never work again. As one of the country’s great Shakespearean thespians, Ralph Fiennes doesn’t immediately strike you as someone who gets down with the hip-hop crowd. Yet it appears that despite his staid navy jumper and ironed jeans, he possesses some serious street cred, with internet reports that the Oscar-nominated actor is “good friends” with US rapper Jay-Z. “No. I’m afraid I have to disappoint you, I’m not friends with Jay-Z,” he insists, suppressing a wry smile. “But I have worked with J-Lo if that counts?” adds the softly spoken actor, referring to his role in Maid In Manhattan with Jennifer Lopez. Fiennes’s wide-ranging and respected CV includes award-nominated turns in The English Patient, Schindler’s List and The Constant Gardener, as well as Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter films and the Greek god Hades in Clash Of The Titans. More than two decades before he started his career on the big screen, the Suffolk-born actor was reciting William Shakespeare’s words in open-air theatre productions. And it’s the Bard’s works to which the 49-year-old has returned for his directorial debut, Coriolanus, a play that’s stayed with him since he played the flawed hero in 2000 at London’s Almeida Theatre. Inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s contemporary reworking of Romeo And Juliet, Fiennes’s modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare’s political thriller, in which he reprises the role of the power-hungry leader, is set in war-torn Belgrade, Serbia. “I became obsessed with Coriolanus, having played him on stage about 11 years ago,” he admits. “I thought it could surprise people as a film, because it’s less known. It’s a very provocative piece, with a confrontational tone, and I like that,” adds the actor who starred as Prospero in a West End production of The Tempest in September last year. “I like the way Shakespeare confronts the


audience with all the questions about loyalty and political intrigue. And it’s continually relevant, particularly now with certain uprisings and economic uncertainty around the world, which is the play’s background.” Vanessa Redgrave stars alongside as his screen mum Volumnia, Gerard Butler as archenemy Tullus Aufidius and Jessica Chastain as his wife Virgilia. “Vanessa was my dream choice to play Volumnia. I’m a great fan and admirer, she always moves me hugely whenever I see her perform,” he reveals. “Two and a half years before we started shooting, she was the first phone call I made to any cast member. She said ‘Yes’ and was incredibly patient with the process of getting the film financed. I remember feeling very emotional when she finally arrived in Belgrade and we rehearsed the scenes.” Fiennes didn’t need much persuasion to get Butler on board either, although he soon had some doubts during their fight scenes. “Funnily enough, I approached him thinking it was a long shot and he came enthusiastically,” he recalls. “He was wonderful to work with and tough to fight. We had to have real battles on camera and he’s bigger and stronger than me, so it was tough. But I survived,” he adds, chuckling. Adapting the wordy play for the big screen was a challenge in itself, and the director had no hesitation in cutting out lines with help from screenwriter John Logan.

“It’s textually dense and heavy, which is why it’s often hard for theatre audiences. It’s impenetrable in places. We both loved the original text but we wanted to make a film,” he says. “One of the things we discovered is it helps to cull a lot of difficult bits. If you cut a 10-line speech, keeping two lines that are great, it lands really strongly.” Editing Shakespeare’s words wasn’t the only challenge, however. Securing funding for the movie took over two years, while the actual shoot lasted over eight weeks. “I have to admit, I was a bit mad to be in it and direct it - but no one else was clamouring to,” he says. “I’ve become intensely curious about directing. I think for some actors, it’s a natural transition because you’re so close to it, and you become very interested in how something’s put together.” As the eldest of six siblings, including actor Joseph, director Martha and film-maker Sophie, he knew he could always call on his family for tips. “My sisters both came to see the early screening and were around when I shot it and wanted their advice and input,” he recalls. Fiennes reluctantly admits enjoying the experience: “It was nervy and adrenalised, but it’s exhilarating. “The pressure of time made it doubly hard, but I had an amazing team around me.” Despite the film receiving critical acclaim,

with Redgrave already winning awards for her performance, Fiennes can’t quite give himself the credit he deserves. “While I hesitate to use the word ‘proud’, the essential feel of the film was very close to what I wanted to make,” he says. “Having lived with it for a long time and having that distance, I can see all kinds of things you wish you could have done differently or better. I was on a big learning curve and made choices under pressure. If I was going to do this film again, I would have a lot more shooting time and revisit certain scenes which weren’t executed to my satisfaction, because of the time pressure.” His experience hasn’t put him off stepping behind the cameras again, as he’s considering directing another Shakespearean play, this time Antony And Cleopatra. And while the Harry Potter film franchise may have reached its epic climax, his next role in front of the cameras sees him in Sam Mendes’s upcoming Bond film Skyfall, opposite Daniel Craig. “I can only tell you it’s classified information. I’m allowed to say that I’m a government agent,” he says, with a knowing smile. Whether it’s Shakespeare or spies, he is intent to continue keeping his plate full. “The anxiety that you’ll never work again always lurks. But also, you want to get better,” he continues. “Every part has a new challenge and there are lots of actors and directors I long to work with.

LANDLORD CLINIC What are the rules regarding tax on my rental income? “I’ve heard so much about tax on income and am worried that at the end of tax year I won’t have the information I need to submit to HMRC.” Letting property in the UK is treated as a business transaction under the eyes of the tax office, even if you have only one property that you currently let. How you are taxed on the income is dependent on what terms the property is let on. For the majority of our landlords, the exception being the odd few, their tenants are on Assured Shorthold Tenancies for a minimum of 6 months. Whether you let one or several properties you will be taxed on the overall net profit. You can work this out by doing the following: • Adding All Rental Income • Adding All Allowable Expenses • Taking Total Allowable Expenses away from Total Income By working out the net profit as an accumulation between all properties (if you have more than one), it means that you can offset a loss from one property against another. The net

LET AGREED

profit after this point will count as part of the taxable income. As part of running this ‘business’ you are allowed certain deductibles* (always check with your accountant that these apply to you.) You’ll have to keep records of your property letting business for six years after the tax year they’re for. You need them to back up the figures you put on your tax return. As agents, our managed portfolio allows landlord’s access to pre completed tax return forms detailing the amount of rent collected, the expenditure incurred as the result of using an agent, the total paid out in maintenance and the final income received minus the maintenance. We recommend that you always consult with an accountant, especially if you are a portfolio landlord.

Look stylish on the slopes whether you're a snow bunny or beginner. Lisa Haynes reveals how to stay warm and look cool with statement skiwear. Whether you're a whiz on the slopes or snow bunny beginner, your skiwear wardrobe should always be your first priority. "If your skiwear isn't appropriate, or perhaps not warm enough for the conditions, you may look a little silly shivering at the top of the slope," warns Andy Barrett, Decathlon ski product trainer. "There's a reason why the best skiers and snowboarders always look so comfy and relaxed." Thankfully, the typical ski queen wardrobe has come a long way from mismatched salopettes and jacket rentals. These days, you can hit the slopes in outerwear that's both functional and fashionable. Turn the mountain tops into your snow-capped catwalk with our guide to looking good on - and off - the slopes. It's time to take the ski lift to style... â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ON-PISTE PANACH Technical clothing is essential to withstand those freezing climates and make like Eddie the Eagle - but that doesn't mean you can't look ice-hot. "Make sure you adapt your skiwear to the conditions," advises Barrett. "For example, skiing in America will require much warmer clothing than skiing in Europe. For those who

are unsure of what to buy, always seek out sound technical advice." They may not be visible but base layer thermals are the essential starting blocks for your ski wardrobe. Either go with basic neutral colours, or try bold colours and quirky prints as you don't have to worry about them matching with anything. Ski jackets and salopettes are the slope staples where you can really flaunt your fashion prowess. For stand-out ski glamour, you'll be easily spotted in out-there animal print or flashes of neon. "The trend at the moment is the brighter the better; yellows, greens and blues are currently very popular on the slopes," Barrett says. Goggles are another necessity to ensure you can see those risky runs safely and clearly. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; APRES-SKI ATTIRE With technical wear hanging out to dry for the next day on the slopes, the stylish snow bunny can come out to play with an apres-ski wardrobe. Layering is key to your look since you'll be pinging from the snowy outdoors, to bar, to sweaty dance floor. Snug ribbed leggings are a good place to start, which you can add to with chunky contrasting socks or leg warmers to ensure you can still feel your feet. Heels are a no-go when you have potential ice and snow to encounter en route to the bars -


invest in a good snow or moon boot instead. Famed for its wellies, Hunter has even come up with a patent-trimmed snow boot in time for ski season. Balance out your proportions with oversized knitwear that you can pull on and off easily, like poncho shapes. For a trend-led take on apres-ski style, try the Navajo-inspired look, as seen on Isabel Marant's autumn/winter catwalk. Choose big knits with shearling-lined collars, bold graphic prints and vibrant hues to brighten up your cold weather wardrobe. Apres-ski is the perfect excuse to overdo it with accessories, too. Go wild with woolly hats, scarves and mittens that you can stash in your bag while you're throwing dance floor shapes after one too many peach schnapps. SKIWEAR ESSENTIALS Don't get bogged down on the slopes with an all-style, no substance attitude. Simply wearing a neon coat isn't going to get you promoted to the black runs. Phil Power, head of equipment at Surfdome.com, has this advice on the skiwear fashion features to look for: VENTS - Usually placed in the arm pits (pit zips) or on the front of the jacket, these are great for those bluebird days where temperatures can rise. – SNOW SKIRTS - They attach your jacket to your ski pants, and are very important for keeping the snow out of your underpants! You can get removable or fully fixed varieties, so investigate whichever you prefer on the jacket you're buying. – ZIPS AND SEAMS - Ensure they're waterproof or sealed, because not all are and can let water in. – POCKETS - Those all-important ski essentials including goggles, MP3 players and ski passes need a home, and pocket positioning should be dependent on where you like these items placed. – HOODS - Check to see if they have a peak, or are removable. If hoods have a faux fur trim, can you take it off so it doesn't get wet or can be easily dried? – CUFFS - Make sure your jacket's cuffs are adjustable and waterproof, and that they fit with your snow gloves, depending on whether you wear them over or under your sleeves.

THE ULTIMATE FIT KIT Motivate yourself to keep your fitness resolutions by dressing up for the gym. Lisa Haynes reveals how to look sporty and chic. If there’s one thing you won’t be able to avoid this season, it’s sportswear. With Olympics fever hotting up, the fashion world has upped the ante for all things athletic. Stella McCartney is going for gold as the seamstress of choice for Team GB’s kit, while on the high street, Next has collaborated with Davina McCall for a fitness range and Dame Kelly Holmes is playing fashion tag-team with Tesco. One thing’s for sure, workout clothes have had a serious style makeover. Put yourself on the fast track to being a fashion medal winner.

LEAN MACHINES There are some people who don’t need any style encouragement to stay fit. Your running shoes practically put a spring in your step and you’re often found skipping happily to the gym. You need a super-fit kit, designed to withstand intensive sporting activity (and profuse sweating). Look out for materials like polyamide or polypropylene with innovative ‘push-andpull’ technology to give you optimum moisture wicking. The fast-dry qualities will ensure that no matter how much your body sweats, you never get wet. The right clothing also retains your body heat so you’ll stay warm, even during those outdoor mini-marathons. Look for fabrics that contain a high content of elastane or lycra to help support your hard-working joints and reduce muscle fatigue.

PART - TIMERS If you find working out hard but worth it, exercise your fashion muscles with a vibrant kit of essentials to keep your fitness mood upbeat and motivated. A flash of zingy brights will give your positive mental attitude a buzz. Make sure you avoid any sportswear emergency that could be an excuse to skip that gym session. If you need to banish the bounce, a supportive sports bra is an essential requirement to ensure everything stays where God intended and prevent sagging. Want to avoid sore feet? Get professionally fitted for your perfect trainers, as ill fitting or old footwear can result in blisters, bruised toenails and even headaches. 142


SOFA SURFERS Whether it’s a fitness DVD or the soaps, you’re more likely to be giving your TV remote a workout than your body. Thankfully, the fashion gods have come up with the lazy girl’s solution without moving a muscle. Enter the gym antidote: a range of shaping garments with compression fabrics containing ingredients like caffeine for a sculpting quick fix. Zaggora HotPants, £44.99 (zaggora.com) and Proskins Slim leggings, £50 (Next) are both popular with a bevy of celebrities and those who want to beat the bulge. You can sport them while exercising, doing the housework or during DVD marathons. If the idea of running brings on a rash, workout while you walk with FitFlops (www.fitflop.com). Choose from boots, sneakers and sandals that will help tone those festive tell-tale signs. It’s sportswear in disguise!

GET THE LOOK FIT FASHIONISTAS You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to join the style sports club. Dress up for the gym - without the membership - by embracing the catwalkinspired sports luxe trend. Marc Jacobs brought swinging tangerine tennis skirts to the spring/ summer catwalk court, while Christopher Kane used swimsuit-style neoprene dresses to give a nod to the 2012 Olympics. Your look should say urban chic; like you’re about to go to the gym but have changed your mind and put on towering heels to workout instead. Think oversized parka coats, silky tank tops and drawstring trousers. Go-faster stripes and sporty hood details might just convince everyone you’re on a keep-fit drive.

Once you’ve hit the gym and got a body like Angelina Jolie’s, steal her figurehugging staples. Try FM Boutique’s leatherlook pencil skirt, £20 (www.fmboutique. co.uk). Ready for Versace fever part two? Donatella Versace has created a new cruise collection for H&M. With fruity prints, and light, floaty negligees and dressing gowns, the designer collaboration should wake up your wardrobe for spring. Versace for H&M cruise is exclusively available online from January 19 at www.hm.com.

FASHION FIRMING One third of women confess that control garments are an essential purchase in January. Over 59% of female shoppers felt they’d overindulged during the festive season and claim they had gained over four pounds to their figures, according to the George at Asda survey. With shaping up topping the lists of New Year’s resolutions, George has launched the Great Bum Shaper Tights as part of its Bodysculpt range, to help women cheat their way to a shapely bottom, £5 (www.george.com).

FASHION FLASH Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen royal wedding dress is vying with the Olympic torch for the Design of the Year. The Sarah Burton-designed gown has been shortlisted in the fashion category of the Design Museum’s Design Awards. Other contenders include Mary Katrantzou’s and Celine’s autumn/winter 11 collections and Vivienne Westwood’s Ethical Fashion Africa Collection. One winner will be chosen in the fashion category, as well as in the six other groups, before an overall Design of the Year is chosen in April. See the shortlist at designmuseum.org.

Not being a morning person, there’s nothing more scrumptious for me than a weekend lie-in. Now the kids are a little older, I can get away with them, occasionally, giving me the chance to recharge after a busy week. As I write this, the children are at skiing lessons with their Dad preparing for his big birthday ski trip in March. I am in bed with ‘Something for the Weekend’ on the TV, surrounded by cups of tea and ginger biscuits (sshhhhh, we’re allowed a treat aren’t we?) with orange juice to freshen the palate. Heaven! The puppy Bryher is downstairs, quiet as a lamb for once, having a sleep – no doubt nurturing yet another growth spurt in her challenge to become the biggest Labrador on the planet. I have never known a puppy to grow so fast; she wasn’t a little bundle of fluff for long. Now at almost five months old, she looks like a teenager. Her big teeth have replaced baby ones, but the good news is the house training is pretty much cracked. We just have to convince her now that every dog on the beach isn’t worth running off to live with……THAT’S my fitness routine! We have been spoilt this month with mild, sunny days to get out walking with her. Bryher has given us the excuse to rekindle our love of Studland and pub lunches in front of the fire at the Bankes Arms. We are so lucky to have that on the doorstep; it’s just such a shame that it costs a small fortune to get there on the Sandbanks ferry nowadays. A harsh reminder of how tough things still are. For some facing redundancy, the winter will feel hard despite the warm sunny days. We must look out for those who need extra support and reassurance right now. Hopefully, many will continue to holiday at home in the UK which helps our tourism economy enormously. The ‘Staycation’ still seems to be going strong and we hope that bodes well for Hoburne Holiday Parks, who are celebrating their centenary in 2012. Over the past year, my team at Liz Lean PR have been researching, interviewing, planning and writing a book acknowledging Hoburne’s 100 years and relevant changes in society over that time. It’s a lovely story. The evolution of the caravan alone is hilarious; I’m not sure the term ‘glamping’ could ever be applied back then! It has been a cherished labour of love and is released this month. We send huge congratulations to Hoburne for reaching 100 and maintaining its wonderful family approach throughout that time. The experience on the parks really reflects that; it is genuinely one of my family’s favourite holidays. Another birthday to celebrate is the 25th anniversary of Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre. Another Purbeck treasure, this attraction has over 240 primates in their care and rescued many, many more over the years. Liz Lean PR and Dorset Chamber of Commerce were proud to announce them as winner of our Dorset Tourism Award at the Dorset Business Awards last November. We hope their big year attracts lots of visitors, enabling the good work to keep rolling. It’s a great day out so if you haven’t been for a while, plan a visit. We’re certainly going to! Still on the subject of tourism, we are building up to another Hotel and Catering Show at the BIC on March 13 -14. This annual trade exhibition aims to inspire and culture business amongst hotels, restaurants and other hospitalityled businesses. In this Olympic year, it is as important as ever that we make the visitors’ experience memorable for all the right reasons. Opening the show this year is Robin Hutson, the hotelier behind Hotel du Vin, Limewood, and most recently, The Pig. Instrumental in bringing the ‘boutique’ hotel concept to the UK, Robin’s career includes time at the Savoy and Claridges, Hotel de Crillon in Paris, and locally at Chewton Glen. A relatively private figure, the Show is privileged to have him on board and we will be working hard to make the most of his presence. Well, the puppy is stirring and the sun beckons for a nice bracing walk. I may however make my life easier and avoid the beach – every dog in town will be there and I will literally be run ragged! Keep well and warm ‘til next time.


‘MOJGAN BRIDAL COUTURE’

MOJGAN LOCAL DESIGNER GOING DOWN A STORM WITH CELEBRITIES Exclusive wedding dress designer Mojgan has a stunning bridal and evening dress emporium in the Winton Banks area of Bournemouth. The boutique with its expansive frontage exhibits some of Mojgan’s most breath-taking and unique designs of wedding gowns, evening wear and prom dresses. Any woman can now capture an opportunity to own a handmade designer outfit or bridal gown at an affordable price and for that reason alone Mojgan is unique in the market place. The shop itself is a “jewel in the high-street” with an interior matching any exclusive designer boutique in London, Paris, Rome or Venice. With large French, gilt mirrors and an impressive array of satins, silks, flurries, beading and diamante, visiting Mojgan’s design studio and sales team is a day’s outing in itself that will no doubt be remembered by any stye-conscious bride and prom queen wanting to impress on her big day. Mojgan Bridal Couture is one of the leading bridalwear studios of the South. The studio prides itself on its collection of exquisite and inspirational bridal gowns, mother of the bride and bridesmaids’ outfits. The team is partly made up by Mojgan Bellamy who designs all of the wedding dresses herself, her sister Sunny (assistant designer) and a very professional team. Over the years the business has been so successful that Mojgan has had to take on extra staff to help in the sales boutique and

cut and prepare gowns. A lot of Mojgan’s success is based not only on her fabulous designs and eye for good taste and style, but also on the unusually warm hospitality and friendly service she offers to anyone walking into her boutique, either to choose and be fitted for a gown or just to browse among the amazing choice of designs Mojgan has on offer. Each bridal and evening gown is individually designed and can cater for all ladies regardless of size and budget. Mojgan and her team are sure they can help every woman to feel like a princess regardless of the occasion. Reflecting on her bridalwear collection Mojgan says, “I feel honoured to be the designer for the most important day of a woman’s life. I’ve had letters from customers thanking us for helping them radiate grace and beauty on their special day.”

“This is a gift; not every designer can achieve that and I think it comes from a sense of warmth, kindness and humanity.” Mojgan’s bridal dresses have a price range from £500 upwards. For a personally designed and fitted bridal gown these are excellent prices; the standard of craftsmanship is reminiscent of a time gone by when only the excessively wealthy could afford such a high standard of service and

quality of product. A prospective bride can choose a dress from the collection on the rails or have one individually designed and made to measure in the design studio. Assistant designer Sunny affirmed, “There is only one place any woman can come to look slim and elegant, regardless of size and budget, and that’s our design studio at Winton Banks in Bournemouth.” Mojgan’s new designs can be seen at the National Wedding Show at Olympia in London every February, at the Earl’s Court National Wedding Show in September and the annual wedding show at the BIC and Pavilion in Bournemouth, also in February. Often clients from further afield see Mojgan’s designs in the London shows and travel down to Bournemouth especially to see her whole collection and to choose and be fitted for their big occasion. Due to her keen eye for grace, charm and style Mojgan has previously been chosen to judge the Miss England contest. As a self-starting business-woman herself she has previously been asked to give a speech for the Prince’s Trust in order to inspire and encourage other women to go for their dreams. For more information contact Mojgan Bellamy and her sales team on 01202 525123; Mojgan’s Bridal Couture and emporium is situated at 317 Wimborne Road, Winton Banks, Bournemouth.

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring

AUDI A6 ALLROAD QUATTRO The new Porsche Boxster arrives in the UK in April with an all-new lightweight body, new flat-six engines with direct petrol injection, a completely revised chassis and evolutionary styling. It will be priced from £37,589. Considerably lower weight, a longer wheelbase, widened track and larger wheels significantly enhance the driving dynamics of the mid-engined sports car. These new features including electro-mechanical power steering, result in the new Boxster offering better performance but also up to 15 per cent greater fuel efficiency.

The styling of the new Boxster features with shorter front and rear overhangs, significantly forward-shifted windscreen, and a flatter silhouette. Both Boxster and Boxster S derivatives are powered by flat-six engines with direct petrol injection, the efficiency of which is further enhanced by electrical system recuperation, thermal management and start/stop function. The new power unit fitted in the Boxster delivers 265 hp from a 2.7 litre displacement – 10 hp more than its larger capacity predecessor. Technically, it is now based on the 3.4-litre engine of the Boxster S. The 3.4-litre now delivers 315 hp, 5 hp more than before. Both models feature a manual six-speed gearbox as standard, with a seven-speed dual-clutch available as an option. Fuel consumption for the Boxster is 36.7mpg, and 35.3mpg for the Boxster S. The 0-60 mph time is 5.7 sec, the Boxster S in just 5.0 sec. The Boxster features an Alcantara interior, 18” alloy wheels, Auto stop/start and Sports mode, remote control hood operation, audio CD with 7-inch colour touch-screen control, and a universal audio interface offering MP3 connectivity. The Boxster S adds 19-inch alloy wheels, partial leather interior and Bi-Xenon headlights.

GRIDLOCK WARNING Motorists in the UK will spend 58 working weeks of their lives not moving in traffic on their daily commute, according to a new study by Continental Tyres. This adds up to over 100 million lost working days every year for the more than 18 million workers who commute by car. Covering an average round trip of 28 miles the typical journey to work and home again takes 41 minutes, with 12 minutes lost every day in jams and delays. Even with annual leave, bank holidays and sick days this means 5½ working days lost every year or 58 working weeks during a lifetime. The study of 2,000 motorists established the routine and habits of commuters as well as their preferences. Tim Bailey, head of safety at Continental Tyres said: “People are clearly concerned about congestion and rising fuel costs, but using the car remains the preferred option for most. “With 63 per cent of workers using their car on at least four of five days in the working week, planners and government need to

"UK MOTORISTS WILL SPEND 58 WORKING WEEKS OF THEIR LIVES STUCK IN TRAFFIC"

AUDI A6 ALLROAD QUATTRO

148

Due to become available to order in the UK in February, priced from £43,145, the new Audi A6 allroad quattro. At 4.94 metres long, the latest A6 allroad quattro sits six centimetres higher than the Avant. Like the saloon and ‘standard’ Avant, it has been constructed using the latest Audi ultra lightweight construction principles, with aluminium components making up roughly 20 percent of its body. Total vehicle weight has been reduced by as much as 70 kilograms compared with the previous model. Distinguishing allroad quattro features include extended side sills, more widely flared wings and vertical slats within the singleframe grille. Stainless steel guards protect the underbody at the front and rear of the car, and

the exhaust system ends in two large, flattened tailpipes. The roof rails are mounted on double bars. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 565 litres.increasing with seats folded to 1,680 litres. The new A6 allroad quattro is also state of the art when it comes to connection technology. The Mobile Phone Preparation – High option connects it to the Internet via UMTS, and a WLAN hotspot lets passengers surf the internet and e-mail. Tailored services for the driver, such as the all-new Audi traffic information online function, which uses mobile phone signals to pinpoint traffic congestion or accident blackspots in real time, or Audi music stream web radio, are delivered right to the car. Attractive services

recognise that the morning and evening rushhour is going to be a feature of life in Britain for some time to come. “For individuals it means frustration but for the economy as a whole it means lost productivity and increased emissions, so it remains a key issue to tackle.” The research also reveals that 14 per cent of commuters car-share. The environmental impact of motoring is a factor when workers decide how they commute however it only ranked as the fourth most important consideration. The biggest concern that prompted people to find an alternative was the volume of traffic and the lack of available parking. Half of all Brits say they will leave their car at home if fuel costs rise further, however 45 per cent of those using public transport now would switch to their car if petrol prices drop. Tim Bailey added: “What is clear is that people still appreciate the freedom and flexibility of driving and that sets a challenge and an opportunity for manufacturers. “Threequarters of us want more fuel efficient cars and nearly half would consider buying a hybrid motor." from Google, including Google Earth, Google Street View and voice-activated POI search, are also available. The new A6 allroad quattro will initially be available in the UK with a choice of three V6 engines – one TFSI petrol engine and two TDI units. All are 3.0-litre engines with turbocharging and direct injection.

HEALTH & FITNESS YOUR GUIDE TO EATING OUT RIGHT A woman sits at a restaurant studying the menu with furrowed brow. She has begun an exercise routine and knows that her frequent meals out could slow her weight loss results if she wasn’t careful. When the waiter comes she is still deep in thought over what to order. “What can I get for you?” he asks with a smile. She looks up and frowns, no closer to arriving at a decision. On a whim she blurts out, “I’m trying to eat healthy but I have no idea what to order. What do you think I should eat?” The young waiter looks startled but quickly rattles off his idea of a healthy meal. “The eggplant and roasted pepper pasta is filled with vegetables. You could get that with a salad.” The woman smiles. Yes, vegetables do sound healthy. So she orders the veggie pasta with a side salad and a diet soda, then sits back to enjoy a few slices of bread. That’s a true story. Not surprisingly the woman was unable to lose weight even though she was exercising regularly. It is said that 80% of your weight loss results are derived from diet, and the remaining 20% from exercise—so you can see how important it is for you to stick with a healthy eating plan..

APPETIZERS Appetizers are a great way to start out a leisurely meal, but can also derail your good intentions with a quickness.

Don’t Order • Anything fried. Fried foods are a favourite, but will do damage that even the most intense workout won’t undo. • Creamy dips. These are filled with fat and usually come with something fried to dip in it. • Bread. It comes smothered in cheese or seeped in butter, and even when it’s plain it fills you up with more carbohydrates than your body needs.

Do Order • Green salad. Ask for very light dressing and no croutons. • Antipasto. A plate of thinly sliced meats, olives and cheese will start you off with some protein. • Lettuce wraps. These are delicious, protein-filled and low in carbs. 140

Spencer Cuckney www.bournemouthfitbodybootcamp.com

BEVERAGES Calories in drinks are sneaky because they don’t fill you up. This means that you end up taking in far more calories than you bargained for.

Don’t Order • Regular or diet coke or lemonade. On one hand you’re drinking corn syrup through a straw, on the other you’re drinking chemicals that cause you to crave sweets. It’s a no win situation. • Sweet cocktails. Many restaurants are advertising sweet cocktails –resist the urge. Sugar plus alcohol equals loads of unneeded calories. • Sweetened tea. You may feel righteous for ordering iced tea, but if it’s sweetened then you may as well be drinking fully loaded soda.

Do Order • Water. Don’t laugh! Water is the best beverage of all. • Unsweetened iced tea. Don’t ruin it by adding that packet of sugar. Learn to enjoy the natural sweetness to the tea. • Red wine. Stick to one glass, and drink responsibly.

ENTREES This is where the real damage is done. When you order something carb-loaded you leave the restaurant feeling heavy and lethargic—you may not even realise this until you start eating better and experience the light, energetic way you’ll feel after eating a healthy meal.

Don’t Order

Do Order

• Pasta. I don’t care if it comes with red sauce or white sauce, meat or veggies. If you’re trying to lose weight and maintain a lean body then never, ever order a plate of pasta. • Pizza. Another dish that has far more carbohydrates than you need. If you’re craving the pizza toppings then simply order those over a salad. • Burgers. If you really want a burger then ditch the bun and the fries, and have your burger wrapped in lettuce.

• Lean meat with vegetables. Fish, steak, chicken, take your pick and pair it with green vegetables. • Salad with protein. Ask for very light dressing and make sure you have a nice piece of protein on it. • Soup and salad. Stick with broth based soups that contain protein and pass on the breadsticks.

DIET ANOTHER DAY It's been proven that exercise alone won't make you lose weight, it's all about what you eat. But don't just count calories, use those cooking skills to get skinny with these top New Year tips Forget mundane healthy cooking, what every girl looking to drop a dress size needs is food she can get her teeth into. So says Jennifer Joyce, author of new book Skinny Meals In Heels. Don't deny yourself, she suggests: "Keep using bacon, nuts and cheese, but just use far less. Instead of eight slices of bacon in a stew, use two. You'll get all the taste but not so much fat. Healthy cooking without these can be a little too virtuous." Considering more than a third of women on rapid weight loss diets gain back more than they lose, according to a recent report by Hovis, delicious meals such as Joyce's (none of which take longer than 30 minutes to prepare) may well be the answer for New Year slimmers. "I truly love to eat lean, piquant food. Wondrous things can be made from Asian sauces, spice pastes and fresh aromatic herbs," she says. True to her word, Joyce makes her sandwiches skinnier by taking out the mayonnaise and replacing it with grainy mustard or chutney.

"It tastes great and is practically zero fat." She also makes sure her cupboards are packed with tasty, low-fat ingredients. "Stock up your fridge and cupboards with options like smoked fish, cooked chicken breasts, Ryvita crackers and Greek yoghurt."

SKINNY TIPS FROM JENNIFER JOYCE DON'T SNACK Snacking is one of the biggest reasons for weight gain. Eat three meals a day that include protein and you won't feel famished in between. It also gives your body a chance to burn off the calories you've eaten already. QUIT WHEN YOU ARE FULL Forget what your mother said. There isn't a law that says you have to finish what's on your plate. Overeating stretches your stomach and will end up increasing your appetite. WINE AND COFFEE ARE OK Within reason, both of these can suppress your appetite. If you're making dinner and hanker for

a piece of bread with butter, drink a glass of wine instead. Likewise, if you can't wait for lunch, drink a cup of coffee or tea to stave off hunger pains. LESS BUTTER AND MORE OLIVE OIL Butter is saturated fat, which causes cholesterol and faster weight gain. Start replacing it with olive oil and use it for cooking onions, on steamed vegetables or drizzled on toast. VARY WHAT YOU EAT Avoid cooking the same things over and over, such as pasta or steak. Go vegetarian a few nights a week and incorporate grains and pulses whenever you can, to ensure healthy eating habits. USE YOUR FREEZER MORE Next time you cook, make double the amount and freeze the excess in single portions. Your freezer will then be stocked with instant ready meals for when you're not in the mood to make something. Here are four recipes to get your non-diet started. Skinny Meals In Heels by Jennifer Joyce is published by Murdoch, at ÂŁ14.99. Available now

BAKED SESAME PRAWNS WITH CHILLI DIPPING SAUCE (SERVES 4) INGREDIENTS

METHOD

16 raw large prawns, peeled and deveined with tails left on

Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas mark 6. To make the sticky Chilli Dipping Sauce, heat the vinegar and sugar with a large pinch of salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer for five minutes or until syrupy. Remove from the heat and add the chilli flakes. Set aside until cool, then add the shallot. Butterfly the prawns by making a deep cut down the back so they lay nearly flat. Whisk the egg white until just foamy, then dip the prawns in, allowing any excess egg white to drain off. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then roll in the sesame seeds. Place on a baking tray, spray with a bit of oil and bake for five minutes, or until they turn opaque and start to curl. Serve warm, garnished with the spring onion, with the dipping sauce on the side.

2 egg whites 4tbsp toasted sesame seeds Salt and pepper Thinly sliced spring onion, to serve 200ml rice wine vinegar 100g caster sugar 2tbsp chilli flakes 1 shallot, thinly sliced Cooking oil spray

152


CHEWY MERINGUES WITH BLACKBERRIES AND GREEK YOGHURT (MAKES 16) INGREDIENTS

METHOD

150ml egg white (from about 4 eggs), at room temperature

Preheat the oven to 150C/Gas mark 2 and line two large baking trays with baking paper. Place the egg white in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until soft peaks form. Add the caster sugar a tablespoonful at a time until incorporated. Keep whisking for one to two minutes, or until stiff, glossy peaks form. Sift the cornflour over the top, add the vinegar and gently fold through the mixture. Place 16 dollops of meringue, about 7.5-10cm in size, leaving plenty of space in between. Reduce the oven to 120C/Gas mark ½ and bake for 35 minutes. Turn the oven off and allow the meringues to cool for a couple of hours. This is an important step, because if you take them out at this point, they will be soft; the cooling process makes them crisp. To serve, gently crush the berries in a bowl with the back of a fork and mix in the icing sugar until dissolved. Serve the meringues with the berries and yoghurt, garnished with the mint.

100g caster sugar 2tsp cornflour 1tsp white vinegar 300g blackberries (or other berries) 1½ tbsp icing sugar 250g low-fat Greek yoghurt Tiny mint leaves, for garnishing

STIR-FRIED FISH WITH DILL AND RICE NOODLES (SERVES 4) INGREDIENTS

METHOD

1 small onion, coarsely grated

Combine the onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, fish sauce and one teaspoon of the peanut oil in a bowl. Mix well, then add the fish and allow to marinate for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place the noodles in a large bowl and pour over boiling water to cover well. Leave to sit for about five minutes or until tender, then drain. Heat the remaining peanut oil in a large wok over high heat. Add the spring onion and dill and cook for one minute, then add the fish mixture. Stir-fry for three to four minutes, or until the fish is cooked through. Divide the noodles among bowls and serve the fish on top with its juices spooned over. Serve with a small sprinkling of peanuts, coriander, chilli vinegar and lime wedges.

2 garlic cloves, chopped 2tbsp fish sauce 2tbsp peanut oil 900g piece of skinless monkfish or tilapia fillet, cut into 4cm chunks 200g dried rice vermicelli noodles 6 spring onions, thinly sliced 40g roughly chopped dill stalks and leaves Chopped roasted peanuts, coriander sprigs, sliced red chilli marinated in rice vinegar and lime wedges, to serve

A CHAT WITH THE HEAD IAIN ROBERTSON BUCKHOLME TOWERS People who help us... Last term saw a visit from a Spaceman, this term it’s a little more down to earth in Nursery, although just as exciting…. ‘People Who Help Us’ is the topic, providing perfect opportunities to invite members of the community into the classroom. Firstly, came the nurse with her stethoscope and her syringes and warning of the dangers of medicine. The dentist brought toothbrushes and toothpaste and reassured everyone that he wasn’t a monster who pulled all your teeth out! The highlight of the week was the Fire Engine – a real life, blue-flashing, water-squirting Fire Engine! After a talk on fire safety, the children dressed in uniforms and helmets, sat in the cab and yes, even used the hose! Monty wowed everyone with his expert knowledge of all things fireman-related, particularly when he recognised and named the ‘Jaws of Life’ (for the uninitiated, that’s’ the cutting tool they use to free people from cars). As I write, a lady from the RNLI is talking ‘Slip Slap Slop’ (that’s sun cream!) and coloured flags. Of course, everyone gets stickers! Visits and visitors are a great way to enrich the curriculum, at any age or stage. Next week, Longleat Safari and Aventure Park comes to Buckholme – how cool is that!

TO CLOSE, YOUR 11+ MATHS TEASER: A motorist travelled 348km in 6 hours. Find his average speed in kmh? And the solution to our last Teaser: Q. By how many hundredths is ¾ more than 0.7? Answer: 5 For more information visit www.buckholmetowers.co.uk or call us on 01202 742871 Got a question to ask? Simply send it to headteacher@buckholme.dorset.sch.uk

HIGHCLIFFE DENTAL PRACTICE GET A SPARKLING WHITE SMILE IN 2012!

WIN A S VALENTINFEOR EVENINGO TW

As teeth whitening treatments are rapidly becoming widely available it is time to shed some expert light on a very confusing subject. Teeth whitening does come in many shapes and forms, it is available on the internet, at the hairdresser’s, at the beauty salon, and many other places. Despite all these options, the dental practice remains the best and safest place to undergo teeth whitening. Let’s find out why. Can anyone do teeth whitening? The whitening technique is not for everyone. There are some situations where whitening is not recommended. This is best assessed during a prewhitening consultation with a cosmetic dentist. Most people can safely undergo teeth whitening, but the expertise of a dentist will help you to achieve a result that will fulfill your expectations.

‘Lurve, Lurve, Lurve’

Is it safe? The whitening techniques and products used at the dentist are proven products with a good track record. Outside of the dental practice there is no control over the products in use, and their safety. It is important to note that whitening products only need a cosmetic license, which basically is just an allergy test, as opposed to a more serious drug license for conventional dental and medical products. EU legislation makes 10 to 16% carbamide peroxide legal, however the relevant legal body in the UK does not currently enforce the law at the moment regarding any other whitening products which do not comply.

Tuesday 14th February 2012 at Urban Reef Restaurant & Urban Beach Boutique Hotel The team at the award-winning Urban Beach Hotel and the funky Urban Reef Restaurant in Boscombe, would like to offer one lucky House Magazine reader the chance to win a romantic Valentine’s evening for two (Tuesday February 14th 2012). You and your other half can enjoy a three course meal at Urban Reef, with a glass of fizz on arrival before heading up the road to brother venue, Urban Beach, where you’re be able to relax in one of the boutique hotel’s double bedrooms. To complete your romantic Valentine’s stay you’ll be able to enjoy breakfast the following morning. You’ll feel all loved up in no time!

How does it work? There are many different techniques available. The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry advises the use of tried and tested ways of whitening teeth (i.e. up to 16% carbamide peroxide), which is why we use a tray based whitening system with 10-16% carbamide peroxide at our practice. Sometimes we need to use stronger concentrations to achieve the desired results.

To be in with a chance of winning simply answer the following question: Question: What is Valentine’s Day typically known for? Is itA: Love and Romance B: Thanks C: Happiness

Does it make teeth more sensitive to hot or cold? Sensitivity is the most common side effect of teeth whitening. The dentist is the best person to help you deal with this issue, and with his/her help this problem will usually be resolved.

Visit www.urbanbeach.co.uk or www.urbanreef.com for further information. T’s and Cs: You and your guest must be available to take your meal for two at Urban Reef on Tuesday February 14th, 6.30pm. Food to be chosen from the Urban Reef Valentine’s Menu only (available online). One glass of bubbly per person, plus tea & coffee. Extra drinks to be paid for. Room only available on the evening of Tuesday February 14th, check in from 3pm. One breakfast per person on Wednesday February 15th. Room must be vacated by 11am on Wednesday February 15th. No cash alternative. Competition closes on Friday 9th February 2012 at midnight.

How long does the whitening last? Normally the new whiter colour of your teeth keeps for quite a while. If you smoke or drink lots of coffee, red wine or tea your teeth may darken slightly. Some patients do a top up treatment.

To get your personalized teeth whitening treatment advice, contact Dr Wells or Dr Grau for a free smile check! And to celebrate the new year - Highcliffe Dental Practice are offering a special rate for February only

ALL YOU NEED TO DO, IS VISIT WWW.HOUSE-MAG.CO.UK/VALENTINES AND FILL IN YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS, SIMPLE! GOOD LUCK!
