Hi there, Welcome to our February edition. Rain, rain, go away. I think we have all had enough of the rain. My thoughts go out to any one that has had flooding and hope it didn’t do too much damage. Here’s hoping the snow stay’s away. It’s pancake day on the 4th March so get your frying pans and lemon’s to the ready. I for one will be flipping those pancakes for the kids and that includes my husband. Danny Green’s fund is our sponsored charity this month and there is a monthly update for you to read.

Cloudy2Clear Windows – Service With A Smile! It’s been a crazy few months for Cloudy2Clear Windows. The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes – not the frames has grown rapidly as homeowners take advantage of their services. Managing Director Chris Miller feels that it’s all about service. ‘Our product is simple. If your double glazing is misted up we can replace the glass at a fraction of the cost of a new window, in any type of frame, and with a new 5 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving

people money, although that obviously helps. Many tradespeople have struggled since last year and I honestly feel that during the good times a minority perhaps didn’t focus on customer care as much as they should have done. We make sure we turn up when we say we will, do the job the customer requires and leave their house as clean as a whistle. I often get comments back from customers on how they really didn’t expect that sort of service which, in a way, is very sad for the service industry as a whole.’ Cloudy2Clear service Canvey Island and the surrounding area and Chris is finding

that his approach is a major factor in his success.‘The truth is that it’s not just the personal satisfaction that I get from doing a good job but also it makes good business sense. I get a huge amount of business from friends and family

of people I’ve done work for, which just goes to show how much a little bit of effort is appreciated.’ So, if your windows are steamed up, broken or damaged give Chris a call for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!

STEAMED UP DOUBLE GLAZING? Don’t replace the Frames... just the Panes!

Every year since the Crunch, I am asked the same question: Is it getting any easier to get a Mortgage? And the answer is an emphatic Yes! Or maybe an emphatic No!! “Curiouser and curiouser”, said Alice. It all depends if you fit precisely in the Lenders’ Tick Box Mentality – If you fit then you’ll have a 99% chance of Acceptance, but venture slightly off course and you can forget all about it. And when Clients get Declined, or Don’t Quite Fit, they always say to me : “Ridiculous” “Beyond Belief” “Illogical”

Article brought to you by...

Ron Radway Financial Consultant with One Call Financial Advice Centre

Money Matters!! …..Through The Looking Glass!

When arranging a Mortgage, Regular Readers will recall that I frequently liken myself to The White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland – Taking my Clients down a Hole to a New World where nothing is what it seems, a journey to the Implausible – What’s Up is Down, What’s up the Front is really round the Back, What is Clear is Opaque, What is Round is Square, What’s Big is Small, &, of course, Vice Versa!!

The last comment sums it up admirably. That’s because Clients apply their own logic as defined by all normal standards & nothing wrong with that – but Lenders have their own take on reality, which often doesn’t have much in common with the rest of us. And it’s about to get worse! Lenders now have to contend with New Rules introduced by the Regulator, which means that Compliance Officers will be poring over every new application to ensure they are not in breach, causing even more delay, confusion – and Decline! A proper Mad Hatters’ Tea Party, & as he himself remarked “You’d have to be half mad to dream this up” and, of course, he was right – or, perhaps, not! Off with their Heads, methinks!! Believe me, you will need help if you want to seek a mortgage this year, & you will find an Independent White Rabbit, I mean Mortgage Broker, by visiting www.unbiased.co.uk

Creamy Mustard Chicken You need: 8oz of spaghetti, 4 thin-sliced chicken breasts 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, 1 large shallot, finely chopped, 1/2 cup dry white wine, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream 2 tbsp Dijon mustard, 3 tbsp chopped fresh sage

1 2 3 4

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package instructions. Drain. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow bowl and coat both sides of the chicken, shaking off any excess. Reserve 2 tsp flour; discard the rest. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean plate. Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tbsp oil to the pan. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add wine and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Combine water with the reserved 2 tsp flour. Add to the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream, mustard, 2 tablespoons sage and the remaining 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce.
