Navy has a bad reputation of only being used in creating nautical theme in a home complete with anchors, ropes and sailboats. Or maybe used with red white stars and stripes for a patriotic look. For me navy blue conjures up feelings of dependability power and authority and is a colour that brings a classic look to a room. Navy is a bold choice with a sophisticated elegance that also can bring summertime freshness and winter warmth to a room depending on the other colour choices you make for the space.

JOHN LEWIS

Fabric is a key element of each John Lewis interior trend collection. Philippa Prinsloo, design manager, home comments on its role in Expressions contemporary trend for Spring Summer 2014.

1

Expressions is a creative collection with an artistic heart expressed through bold statements made on linen and soft furnishings, where painterly patterns imperfect markings evoke a hand-created, ‘from the studio’ feel. You can see this in the brush strokes on furnished fabrics and when photo prints have been used there is a hazy effect, as though the images have been drawn with a softened lens.

JANET ELLIS, TV PRESENTER & ACTRESS My kitchen is my favourite, because it runs from the front of the house to the back, and at each end the windows look out on to gardens,” says Ellis, whose daughter is singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor. “It’s got fitted cream Ikea kitchen units, stainless steel worktops and a huge oven. There’s a large central island and running on from that, a dining table which seats 12. It’s great for family meals when Sophie and her family come over, as well as my other children. “The whole room is serene in cream shades, and an oasis compared to rest of the house, which is filled with colour and lots of art. On guard by the kitchen door is a life-size model of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.”

CHINESE TOP 5 TIPS NEW YEAR FROM TODD DOORS

1

Celebrate Chinese New Year on 31st January 2014 by cooking up a storm with Orient inspired kitchen and dining essentials.

A new front door creates a striking first impression

Choose an eye-catching new entrance door to match the style and period of your house. Whether your house needs a period reproduction or a more contemporary style, a new timber door will be built to last. All timber doors can be painted or stained in the colour of your choice.

2

Replace your old door handles

Accentuate your interior doors with Todd Doors’ new range of Groël door handles. Beautifully tactile, weighty yet sleek, they come in a number of finishes to complement your door. This attention to detail is a great finishing touch!

3

Choose glazed doors if you have a dark entrance hallway

Most internal and external doors can be ordered with glazed panels which can greatly help to brighten a room. Ask for acid-etched glass if you are concerned about privacy, but still want to let the light in.

4

For something different, choose white, or black doors

If you want to keep your design simple, yet stylish, white or black doors are very effective and right on trend. Many white doors come pre-finished, or you can even order an oak door which has been deep smoked for a stunning, modern look

5

Sliding doors are great when you’re in a tight spot

If you want to partition a room, or close the door on a wc, utility or cloakroom, a pocket door system looks sleek, and ensures you can make the most of your available space.

Or that we’re unique as an estate agency in using technology to give our clients lots of insightful, useful information about their local property market?

Is your property protected against Fraud?

Visit the new Karndean Designflooring showroom today, now open at Carpet Barn

Your property is probably the most valuable asset you own. That’s why it’s important you do whatever you can to protect it from the risk of fraud. Property fraud happens in many ways, but typically a fraudster will impersonate a homeowner and forge documents to try to persuade Land Registry to transfer the title into their name. They then either sell the property or use the property to raise a mortgage from a bank – and disappear with the money. There is an increased risk of fraud when: • • • • •

Your property’s mortgage has been paid off Your property is empty or you’re letting it An owner is spending time abroad or absent The owner is infirm or in a nursing or care home A relationship breaks down

In December 2008, for example, a man in his late 20s was jailed in London for using somebody else’s £1m house as collateral for a £525,000 mortgage. The genuine owners were a family who had inherited the property and rented it out through letting agencies. But in November 2007, the house was transferred into the fraudster’s name – and according to the Metropolitan Police, the true owners didn’t know anything about the switch for five months Between September 2009 and April 2013 Land Registry have stopped 136 fraudulent applications on properties worth an estimated £60 million, they have a dedicated fraud team and work closely with the police and other agencies to reduce the risk of property fraud.

Land Registry are keen to stop this happening and although they pay compensation to genuine owners in cases where a registered title has been fraudulently transferred, the distress and inconvenience could simply be prevented by either registering your property, not all properties are registered as it has not always been compulsory. Keep your details up to date, you can register up to 3 addresses (including email). If you’re worried you may be the victim of property fraud, contact Land Registry immediately. You should also get legal advice and contact the police. For more information please go to www.landregistry.gov.uk/public/property-fraud.

MOVING OUT VS MOVING UP

The stress of buying, selling and packing can put people off the idea of moving house from the start and with research showing that moving house is deemed one of the most ³stressful life events³ that people will encounter it is no surprise people look for ways to avoid moving.

TRENDS

There are also the hidden costs associated with moving, that people do not consider at the start, such as stamp duty, surveying, legal costs and insurance to name a few. So with that in mind moving house does not come cheap! Along with all the stress and hassle is it worth even considering? The average cost to move from a three bed to a four bed house is £87,640. With those moving costs in mind and in this economic climate it is sensible to think about gaining that extra space in your home via your loft. An average cost of a Loft Conversion is around £38,000 and according to research by Nationwide adding a loft conversions could have the potential to increase the value of your property by almost a quarter. So a loft conversion could be your ideal solution. It can potentially add value to your property without all of those additional moving costs and inconvenience and hassle of 118 uprooting your family to a new house.

EXTRA SPACE If your family is growing and you feel that you need extra space for tiny feet, or that you need a room dedicated to quiet time and relaxation then a loft conversion could be the answer. Even if you just need the storage space, having your loft professionally converted with Cool Loft Conversions will maximise your loft potential.

EASIER & CHEAPER Moving to a larger house might be your ultimate dream, but for a lot of people the money, time and stress involved puts this out of reach. A loft conversion is an alternative option that is cheaper, quicker and much less fuss than relocating and you still feel like you own a new home once its complete.

INCREASE YOUR HOMES VALUE A loft conversions can add great value

to your home, so when you decide to move you could get a better return on your property with a converted loft then without. Even with the initial building cost and additional expenses considered, having the extra space of a loft conversion can bring excellent returns on investment. Here at Cool Loft Conversions, we have created a recent case study within our local area,t o see whether it is worth carrying out a loft conversion to achieve a forth bedroom compared to moving to gain more space. After contacting local companies such a solicitors, removal firms and local estate agents to find out what they charge for the whole moving process, we found the results staggering. We had to show our customers just how much it costs to purchase a forth bedroom by moving house compared to converting their existing loft thats already owned.

Many loft conversions do not require planning permission; however, we would always advocate good design irrespective of whether permission is required.

GIVE YOUR BATHROOM A CLEAN NEW LOOK

THIS WEEK: HOW TO RENOVATE YOUR BATHROOM. Before you change a bathroom, you need an idea of what to change it to. It’s a seemingly simple task, but one that can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially if your current room has remained unaltered for some years, and its faded tiles and shower curtains look beyond repair. Luckily, thanks to endless glossy interiors websites and magazines, there’s plenty of inspiration around for potential DIYers. So once you’ve pored over the pictures, and decided what layout and budget suits your projec, there’s no reason not to get started. First stop, unless you’re a very experienced DIYer, is to get a good plumber to do any work that involves changing the existing layout. They’ll be able to offer advice about changing the layout and what is and isn’t possible or advisable, as will bathroom/interior designers. Reconfiguring the water and heating pipes is one thing, but altering the

waste pipe for the loo is more work and expense, especially if it involves ground works or fitting a new soil stack. If you want to move the loo, it really pays to get expert advice at the planning stage. Don’t forget to work out how much space is needed to comfortably use the loo and basin and to dry off after having a shower or bath - pack in too much and you’ll soon find that your bathroom isn’t easy, practical or pleasurable to use. It’s therefore important to choose a suite that’s in proportion to the size of the room - free-standing baths and separate shower cubicles, for example, need room to breathe. If your heart is set on a free-standing bath, but you don’t have the space, a free-standing-style shower bath is a good compromise. This looks like a free-standing bath, but the tap end is flat against a wall, so you can have a shower above. As well as somewhere to wash, storage is also essential

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK CORDLESS SCREWDRIVER For a power tool like no other, check out the limited-edition Bosch IXO Swarovski (£273.18, Amazon.co.uk), a cordless screwdriver studded with Swarovski crystals. The IXO is compact, ergonomic and well designed, with comfy, rubberised grips, a built-in work light, 10 screwdriver bits, useful indicator lights and an attractive presentation box. For everyday DIY tasks, the small and nifty IXO is ideal - and for bling, it’s unbeatable.

in a bathroom. It can be difficult to fit some into a small one space, however there are clever solutions; a bath panel with a door so you can store items under the bath; a storage rack that fits around a pedestal basin, or slimline drawers that tuck under the basin bowl next to the pedestal.

Wall tiles, in particular, make a significant difference to the feeling of a bathroom. The current trend might be to tile the full walls, but if this seems too costly and difficult, just tiling around the bath and above the basin really lifts the space too.

Whatever money, and effort, you spend on your new bathroom though, you want it to stay looking good for years to come - so be sure to use a specialist kitchen and bathroom emulsion, as these paints are designed to withstand steam and mould.

Apart from the cost of a plumber (and designer if you use one) replacing a bathroom doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s not hard to find great-looking budget fixtures and fittings (bathroom suites start from around £200), and the sales are currently still on - B&Q, for example, has 25% off bathrooms (and kitchens and bedrooms) when you spend £350 or more in one go (terms and conditions apply). Of course, there is much more to a bathroom than just the suite, and sometimes updating the smaller touches, like the wall colour, flooring and lighting, can make an equally big impact on your room.

HOW-TO TIP SHOWER WORKS How do you incorporate a shower in your new bathroom inexpensively and easily? Bath-shower mixer taps, which are bath taps with a shower hose and head, are cheaper to buy and fit than a separate shower and bath taps, and do two jobs in one.

Why not give your property a facelift? Absolute stone and brick use a DOFF steam cleaning system based cleaning system. It’s unlike any other steam system and can achieve temperatures 150°C. The DOFF system will remove dirt, paint, moss, algae, fungi, some graffiti, soot and smoke damage from almost any surface. The system uses steam so there is no need to use a chemical biocide during the removal process and the surfaces are dry within minutes. Unlike jet washing, DOFF uses steam rather than preasure to clean so it wont damage the surface being cleaned and also the steam kills any moss, fungi bio matter so the surface stays cleaner for much longer.

MOTORING

MOTORING NEWS The latest news on all things motoring. By Nick Fletcher

FAREWELL TO TAX DISC The Government’s plan to scrap tax discs later this year has received overwhelming support from motorists according to a new survey by Motorpoint. A new web-based poll found 60.6% of drivers backed the decision by the Chancellor George Osborne to axe the tax disc after more than 90 years in favour of an online only system. The tax disc was introduced in 1921 to show that motorists have paid Vehicle Excise Duty but it was revealed in the Autumn Budget that it is no longer needed with the DVLA and the Police now relying on an electronic register. Under the new online system people will also, for the first time, be able to pay their road tax by monthly direct debit to help spread the cost. Motorists without internet access will still be able to tax their cars by telephone or in person at their local post office. Mark Carpenter, Managing Director of Motorpoint, said: “The tax disc is part of the fabric of motoring and I am sure it will take some getting used to not having it on show in our windscreens. “However, with the widespread use of real-time online systems by the Police and other agencies to combat avoidance, the role of the tax disc has become largely symbolic and based on the results of our poll it doesn’t seem that too many drivers will be that sad to see it disappear.”

SUZUKI SWIFT ROAD TEST Precise handling and nippy agility are the standout features of the Suzuki Swift Sport, which many people think rivals the Mini for superb handling characteristics. The Sport model has been around for a while, but recent revisions mean there is now a 5-door version, adding more practicality to a compelling sporty package. Swift prices start at £10,799, with the high-spec five-door Sport version which I tested recently the range-topper at £14, 249. Standard equipment on this model includes automatic air-conditioning, remote locking and push button start, four electric windows, seven airbags, cruise control, traction and stability control, USB port, Bluetooth, audio unit with music streaming, auto lights and a few sporting touches such as front fog lamps, dual exhausts, side sills, a roof spoiler, rear privacy glass and larger 17-inch alloys.

main rivals quite significantly. Power comes from a 134 hp 1.6 litre petrol engine which offers zestful performance and the 0-60 mph time of just 8.7 seconds is close to best in class. Top speed is 121 mph, and the fuel figure is 44.1 mph combined. The Swift Sport is visually striking and is a very engaging car to drive, with outstanding cornering grip and body control. The steering is precise and assured and the ride quality, while rather firm, still provides decent comfort. The six speed manual gearbox on the Sport model has a slick action which aids the power delivery.

Overall, the Swift Sport displays a jaunty charismatic image and backs it up with genuine sporting performance which should appeal to those seeking something a little more edgy than the conventional hatchback.

It is a package which exudes value for money and the Swift Sport undercuts

ADD VEHICLE CONTRACTS - WHAT IS CAR LEASING? In its most simple definition, a car ‘lessee’ pays a monthly sum to take possession of a contract car for a period of between typically two to four years. At the end of the term the lessee gives the car back to the dealer/owner and takes a new lease or may opt to buy the car at its value at that point. Why does leasing often get a ‘bigger bounce for your buck’? The amount that a lessee pays over the period of a lease is typically equal to the amount that the contract car (ie; the leased car) will depreciate over that period. According to the AA, after 3 years the average car will have lost around 60% of its value. However, some cars (Audi, Mini or BMW) depreciate much less than others (Ford) and therefore, it may actually be close to the same price to lease an Audi as it is a Ford. A rough example that excludes VAT; a £19,000 Ford might have a forecast

depreciation of 50% over 3 years amounting to c. £9,500. This drives the price of the leasing contract and based on depreciation only, over 36 months the Ford might cost approximately £263 a month. However, for an Audi A4 that has an original value of £29,000 it might only depreciate by 30% across that period and this would mean (based on depreciation only) the monthly price would be £241 per month for a more up market vehicle.

to buying); Smaller deposit/upfront payment – provided you have a good credit record this will typically be 3 months as opposed to 10 or 20% for a loan. Flexibility – although it will increase your payment you can extend the mileage if you like and you can extend the period (which will decrease your monthly payment) and you can opt to buy the car at the end.

Which Car Finance Option is best leasing or buying? This is a subjective question. First you must ask yourself:

Car Leasing Is available for both business & personal users.

What benefits will you get for owning the car? This might include: owning the car for as long as you like; driving an unlimited amount of miles.

The Swift’s high roofline means you have lots of headroom, and with the new five door, you get better access, though leg room in the back could be more generous. Boot space is reasonable at 211 litres, boosted to 512 litres with the rear seats folded, though the load floor is stepped.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

HEALTH & BEAUTY The latest beauty tips and treatments from the owner of Chic Beauty Salon & Academy

As hormone levels rise and bodies change, skin reacts. For some teens it’s an occasional spot or blemish. For girls it can occur right before each menstrual cycle. For other teens though, breakouts go far beyond a spot or two to create a chronic condition known as acne. It’s characterised by whiteheads, blackheads and, more frequently, angry spots. It usually develops in the central area of the cheeks and on the forehead, and it’s almost universally caused by a hormone imbalance or a hypersensitivity to the robust hormonal activity going on in the body during this time. Luckily,  Dermalogica - my only choice of skin care brand has stepped up its game with the release of  Clear Start, an 8-piece line that targets sensitive, young skin. And, even though I’m well out of my teen years, I love the line’s gentle, no-nonsense approach to getting your complexion back in shape. With ingredients like  liquorice extract, lavender, and meadowsweet, Clear Start certainly won’t wreak havoc on your skin. My

VALENTINES DAY IDEAS

Men ransack flower shops and scratch their foreheads trying to decide which arrangement will bring you tears of joy and which will just bring sneezes and sniffles. Guys furiously hunt down heart-shaped

boxes of chocolates as if they contained the secret to life – which they do. Every man knows that making the woman in his life happy on Valentine's Day is vital to his own continued happiness. A poor performance on Valentine's Day can haunt him the rest of

We all have problems with our teeth. We can lose them in accidents; because of infections or simply from the everyday stresses that life brings. This can sometimes leave us feeling a little helpless and embarrassed. Why settle for a denture that has to be taken out every day, when we can give you a full set of beautiful, smile-worthy new teeth? Here at South Coast Dental we offer a number of solutions for your denture dilemmas. Mini Implants: Four mini implants are inserted into the bone. Small implants are placed above the gum level, so your denture can have forces applied during your healing phase. Approximate costs involved: £2,400 per set. Conventional Implants: Three implants are inserted into the bone. Implants are placed into the jaw and a 6-8 week healing period follows. They are then uncovered and your denture is attached to give you the retention and stability you require. Approximate costs involved: £5,000 per set. All-on-four Fixed Teeth: remaining teeth removed and gap replaced with fixed teeth in just one day. Two implants are placed at the front of the mouth and two at the side. These are angled to provide the best platform. We then place an immediate fixed bridge so you leave with a brand new set of fixed teeth. Approximate costs involved: £12,500 to £15,000 per arch.

If you’re tired of letting your teeth get you down, then let us know on 01202 889960 or via email at reception3@southcoastdental.co.uk where our highly skilled team of dentists will soon have you back on track enjoying the everyday pleasures of life and feeling as confident as you deserve. 11, Merley Park Road, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 3DA

HEALTH & FITNESS Charlie Lowe from the fastest growing bootcamp ‘Wassmuffin Fitter Than fit’ talks Fitness, well being, healthy eating and of course Thai Boxing.

TIP OF THE WEEK You’re probably telling yourself something like “I should exercise right now. If I don’t work out, I’m never going to get fit.” This statement has many hidden obstacles. For one thing, feeling like you should do something makes it seem like work, or an obligation. That’s no fun. You’re also thinking about what will happen if you don’t exercise-in other words, you’re threatening yourself with punishment (the image of being unfit). Subconsciously, you’re flooding your mind with negativity. Instead, remember that exercise is a choice, and it’s about whether you want to, or not! And instead of thinking about how you’ll look if you don’t work out, think about how great you’d look if you did!

NEW YEAR NEW YOU THIS WEEK: 6 GREAT WAYS TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF TO EXERCISE At this point, everyone is pretty much aware of the huge upside to exercising regularly. The reason that there aren’t more people doing it, is the sheer lack of motivation. There is nothing that pushes them enough to go out there and exercise. Fortunately, there are some very useful ways which you can use to motivate yourself to become a more active individual. Let me elaborate on each one of them a bit more: CHANGE FROM A “MAYBE” TO A “MUST” The first thing you need to do is to categorically include exercise into your lifestyle without any maybe’s or but’s. Exercising should be a must within your daily routine. Within your time management, there should always be time allocated to exercising. I can’t stress enough how important this is.

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH FITNESS-ORIENTED PEOPLE. If you are not exercising, have a look at your close unit of acquaintances. Chances are that most if not all of them are just as non-active as you are. If you want to be successful at not only starting but staying active over time, you definitely need to have friends that share this same goal with you. Having a training partner is one of the best ways to get yourself the proper motivation to keep at it day in and day out. WANT TO BE BETTER LOOKING? With a little patience and a strong will, you can literally reshape your entire body via exercise. Use this desire of seeking to be more attractive to your advantage and turn it into pure motivation to exercise. Sure, there are tons of reasons why people exercise, but I am certain

that 100% do it partly to be more attractive. THINK LONG TERM HEALTH BENEFITS The thing with health, is that we do not “see” it. It’s hidden, and thus in a very visual and superficial society such as our current one, it becomes secondary to looks. Luckily, people are becoming more and more concerned with being healthy and living a better quality of life as they get older. Use this to your advantage as well to motivate yourself to exercise. The list of health benefits that exercising provides you with is just enormous. WORK TOWARDS A GOAL. Do you have a reunion to go to in a few months and you want to look your best? Do you have a vacation planned and you want to look fantastic in a bathing suit? Do you idolize a certain person and want to look just

like them? These types of goals are extremely powerful, and can provide unrelenting motivation that can then carry you towards those very goals. The key is to always have such a goal, because you don’t want to go back to your old ways once you have reached that goal. I’m sure you’ve seen people flip flop over and over again with their fitness, and this is due to the fact that once they reach their goal, they do not have another one to aim for. Always have something to work towards, and every time you reach one, create a new one. SIMPLY START As hard as it is to get yourself to start, you will be happy to know that things get much better as you keep going. The steepest hill to climb over is to start. Once you start, you have conquered the biggest obstacle. This is something that you should be proud of, in and of itself.

Healthy Lifestyle Tips by Mark Daley

Mark has a vast knowledge of sports nutrition which can be adapted to weight management, as well as strength and fitness exercise programming for the beginner to the advanced athlete. He heads a team of health and fitness specialists at The West Hants who all have their own niche including Pilates, Strength and Conditioning, Meditation techniques, Neuro-Linguistic Programming to name just a few. Here are tips 10-15, see next issue for more.

Don’t compare yourself to others. Be the best you can be, don’t try to keep up with someone else. They may be built completely different, predisposed genetically to be stronger, faster or leaner than you. Practice relaxation techniques. If you thought stretching was one of the more underused forms of exercise think again. If you have a busy life and add exercise to this you need to balance this out with time for relaxing. Check what to buy organically. Not all fruit and vegetables need to be organic, some, usually thicker skin varieties, will not be effected by pesticides. Google: ‘Clean fifteen and dirty dozen’. When possible try to exercise earlier in the day. You’ll have more energy and your metabolism will be boosted for the entire day. Don’t just count the calories burned during your workout. Simply by undertaking a workout you have put your body into repair mode which in turn raises your metabolism which can stay elevated for as long as 48 hours. Eliminate processed carbohydrates from your diet. This, initially, will appear harder than you first think. Breakfast cereals, pasta, bread, white rice, cakes, are all processed carbs. If you took a more Palaeolithic approach, eating like our forefathers, your meals would consist of vegetables, fruit, meat, and dairy, and this approach would boost your immune system, reduce your inflammation and risk of inflammatory diseases, cut out your risk of getting Y ONL type 2 diabetes and you would become much leaner.

FOOD & DRINK

FULL FLAVOUR, LOW FAT

Watching your weight, but don’t want to survive on rabbit food? Fear not - food writer Angela Nilsen has given classic recipes a low-calorie twist. We take a (guilt-free) taste.

If you find sticking to a healthy eating regime too much of a struggle, because you simply can’t give up your favourite foods, Angela Nilsen’s new book could be just the ticket. The former food editor of BBC Good Food magazine has taken traditionally calorie-packed meals and treats, including a full English breakfast, pasta dishes, curries, cakes and desserts, and recreated recipes for them with less sugar, fat and salt - but the same deliciousness, she promises. Make It Lighter also features ‘slimmed down’ versions of fish, chips and mushy peas (classic version, 915 calories; lighter version, 649), Thai green curry (classic version, 817 calories; lighter version, 487) and even chocolate brownies - which Nilsen’s managed to make possible at a less-than-naughty 191 calories, compared to the typical 314 in a regular brownie. “They are all classics, the kind of food you love to eat but might feel a bit guilty about,” she says, describing the recipes in the book.

“My challenge was to find ways of maintaining the desired taste while creating a much lighter version - recipes with less fat, sugar or salt, the very ingredients that make them so popular in the first place.” Nilsen admits the task wasn’t always easy, as she refused to compromise on the irresistibly rich taste of well-loved treats, and wanted to avoid using low-fat alternative ingredients, as she felt the full-fat versions added to the taste. But, she says: “Where I have occasionally used them, I’ve worked out lower fat ways of increasing richness and flavour.” She insists these aren’t ‘diet’ recipes - just ways of enabling people to eat the food they enjoy, but in a lighter, healthier way. “They are recipes you can enjoy with your family and friends without the guilt.” Her personal favourites include the lemon tart and the chocolate brownies: “I like them for the surprise element, as the secret ingredient I used to keep fat down but gooeyness intact was mayonnaise, which fooled everyone.”

RECIPE

Nilsen also singles out her lighter hummus recipe, in which she uses a whole bulb of roasted garlic after it was recommended to her by a friend in Canada. “I tried it and was amazed how well it worked,” she says. “The roasted garlic didn’t overpower and it gave the hummus its creamy texture, which didn’t require as much oil. “It’s these kinds of struggles and unforeseen twists that have made all the recipes in the book an exciting journey to take.” Each recipe comes with tips to help you cook more healthily, such as brushing vegetables with a little oil then roasting or cooking them on a griddle, instead of frying them, or bulking out a shepherd’s pie with lentils, so you can cut down on mince.

Twice-baked cheese souffles Ingredients For the souffles: 1tbsp (heaped) polenta 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing 1tsp butter 25g plain flour 250ml semi-skimmed milk 50g grated Parmesan cheese

1tsp Dijon mustard 50g light soft cheese 2tbsp (heaped) snipped chives, plus extra to serve 2 large egg yolks 3 large egg whites 50g rocket, to serve Freshly ground black pepper

For the tomato salsa: 350g cherry tomatoes, finely chopped ½ small red onion, finely chopped 1tsp tomato puree Pinch of crushed dried chillies Freshly ground black pepper

Method Lightly brush six 150ml ramekins with olive oil and coat with the polenta, shaking out any excess. Place the ramekins in a small roasting tin.

Meanwhile, make the salsa. Mix together the tomatoes, onion, tomato puree and crushed chillies. Season with pepper, cover and chill until ready to serve.

minutes until golden on top and risen. Carefully remove from the tin and leave to cool. The souffles will sink as they cool.

Heat the oil and butter in a medium saucepan, stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for one minute. Remove from the heat and pour in the milk, a little at a time, stirring well until the mixture is smooth.

Preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180C/gas mark 6).

The souffles rise again when re-baked, and you can prepare them up to 24 hours in advance. If re-cooking, preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180C/gas mark 6) and remove the souffles from the fridge about 10 minutes before baking. Turn each out of its dish and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.

Return the pan to the heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to the boil. Remove from the heat. Reserve one heaped tablespoon of the Parmesan and stir the rest into the mixture, with the mustard, then the soft cheese in small spoonfuls. Add the chives, season with pepper and leave to cool slightly. 136

Beat the egg yolks into the cheese mixture. Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks. Using a large metal spoon, fold a spoonful into the mixture to slacken slightly. Gently and evenly fold in the remaining whites, half at a time, keeping the mixture light and airy. Divide the mixture evenly between the ramekin dishes. Pour cold water into the roasting tin to come halfway up the sides of the dishes. Bake for 15-18

Sprinkle the reserved Parmesan over each souffle, then bake for 10 minutes or until risen. Scatter with chives. Serve each with a pile of salsa and rocket.

Valentine’s Day was traditionally celebrated to honour Saint Valentine, the patron saint of lovers; it is believed he was murdered on February 14th AD 270. It was said that before he was murdered he left the jailer’s daughter a note which said “Love from your Valentine” and this is where the modern day Valentine’s Day card has come from. So while you are planning your special Valentines treat why not go that extra mile to impress, with this simple but delicious gooey chocolate pudding to conclude a romantic dinner for two.

SCHOOLS

BUCKHOLME TOWERS SCHOOL AND NURSERY WHY REWARDING PUPILS HELPS THEM ALONG THE ROAD TO SUCCESS Buckholme Towers School and Nursery prides itself on rewarding pupils at every opportunity, ensuring that each child is recognised for his or her individual progress. Headmaster Iain Robertson explains: “Pupils who attend Buckholme Towers are taught in small classes, where the environment is nurturing and expectations are high. Children learn best when they feel safe and happy, and they feel happy when their efforts are recognised and rewarded; the more regularly this happens, the happier and more motivated they are. Children in larger classes often feel overlooked, which can in turn lead to frustration and a ‘Why should I bother?’ attitude. “At Buckholme we have a number of ways to raise pupils’ self-esteem and improve motivation. In the classroom it may be a simple thumbs-up, pat on the back or a sticker in the book. We also operate a merit award system where pupils earn merits for themselves and their House. This is for achievements such as good behaviour, smart appearance, sporting accomplishments, good manners and a positive contribution to the school community. At the end of term the House with the most merits is rewarded with a trip to the cinema or bowling. This promotes camaraderie and teamwork as well as motivating them to improve. There are merit badges and certificates presented in assemblies and recognition in the Headmaster’s weekly newsletter. Then there is the ultimate recognition, being awarded a cup at the annual Speech Day and Prize Giving. Rewarding pupils in this way makes them more confident, raises self-esteem and encourages them to strive for even greater success.

“CHILDREN IN LARGER CLASSES OFTEN FEEL OVERLOOKED, WHICH CAN IN TURN LEAD TO FRUSTRATION AND A ‘WHY SHOULD I BOTHER?’ ATTITUDE.”

146

“The bar is set high at Buckholme and we strongly believe that students should be regularly and fairly rewarded for their achievements. Regular assessment means teachers are able to measure progress accurately and feed back to pupils. In this way, they know exactly how well they’re doing and feel inspired and motivated to rise to the challenges, becoming confident, independent learners. This vision helps to raise the already high standards and supports good behaviour throughout the school.”
