MARCH

........................................ Forget about carving this easy slowcooked pot roast – pull the fragrant, tender lamb from the bone, rustic style. Perfect for mum on Mothering Sunday!

1.

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

2.

With the tip of a sharp knife, make shallow scores through the outer layer of skin and fat of the lamb shoulder, but not into the meat, cross-hatching the entire surface.

3.

4.

5.

6.

Mix the dried camomile, the thyme, rosemary, sage and oregano together in a bowl. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Press a handful of the herb mixture into the skin of the lamb, massaging it in well all over the flesh of the lamb. Sprinkle some of the herb mixture across the bottom of a casserole with a lid. Place the lamb into the casserole, then squeeze the lemon juice over the top, before sprinkling with any remaining herb mix. Drizzle the honey over the top of the lamb and pour over a little olive oil.

7.

Pour the water into the casserole, then put the lid on. Transfer to the oven and cook for 2½ hours. Check the dish after one hour the lamb should be taking on a little colour. If the water has evaporated, add a little more to maintain the dish's moisture.

8.

After the 2½ hours cooking the lamb meat should pull away easily from the bone.

9.

Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 4-5 minutes.

6

......................... 1. 1.4kg/3lb shoulder of lamb, trimmed 2.. Handful dried camomile (or contents camomile teabags) 3.

½ bunch fresh thyme, leaves only

4.

4 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves only

5. 12 fresh sage leaves, roughly chopped 6. 1 tbsp dried oregano 7.

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

8. 1 lemon, juice only 9. 1 tbsp good Greek or wild flower clear honey 10. 2 tbsp olive oil 11. 125ml/4fl oz water

......................... To serve, using a knife and fork, pull large pieces of meat away from the bone and arrange on a large serving place. Drizzle the meat with any pan juices and allow guests to help themselves.

Mothers Day Sunday, 26 March, 2017

This Mother's Day, why not get the whole family together for some creative fun and games? Here are some ways to inject some laughter -- and love -- into your Mother's Day celebration. Take an exotic "vacation." Even if you can't afford to go to Paris for the weekend, you can still enjoy a little taste of France (or any other destination that intrigues you). Get some croissants for breakfast, pack a picnic lunch of French bread, cheese, and fruit, or order a meal from your favourite deli or restaurant (quiche, anyone?), and get into the flavoured of the country. For an added touch, adorn your kitchen or dining room table with a red-and-white-chequered tablecloth and fresh flowers, put on some French music, and teach your kids a few basic words in French, such as "bonjour" (good morning) and "merci" (thank you). Go to the movies. One good way to share family memories is to look at old photographs or home movies. If you live near Grandma or Grandpa, ask them to pull out old photos and movies of you as a child, and take a trip together down memory lane. Your kids will get a kick out of the styles of clothes you wore -- not to mention the fact that you were once a baby, toddler, or teen. Find the humour in family life. Start a new tradition this year by creating a family comic strip. Take a long sheet of paper, and draw three or four large squares next to one another, like a newspaper comic strip. Then think of an event, celebration, or something funny that happened this past year, and illustrate it with markers, crayons, or paints. Be sure to include dialogue, a date, and a title, such as "Life with the Smiths." Older children can help with the drawing and writing, while younger kids can dictate their thoughts or help colour. Save your comic strip, and create another one next year and others in years to come. When you're ready to compile all of your strips into a book, stack the pages and thread them together with sturdy yarn.

Make a little music. Nothing brightens a family celebration quite like music. But if you want to really turn up the volume on fun, stage your own "lip-synch" contest. To begin, have each family member choose a favourite song from a CD, tape, or video that you currently own. Then turn on the music, and let each person lip-synch the words to the song, doing his or her best to mimic the performer. (Your 2-year-old, for instance, can pretend he's Barney singing the "I Love You" song.) Other family members can rate the performance from one (not at all like the performer) to five (exactly like the performer), and write down their score on a card. The person with the highest score wins the contest. Get pampered. At some point on Mother's Day, you may want some time alone or a chance for a little rest and relaxation. Make sure you get what you need -- and deserve -- by asking for it in advance. For instance, a few days before Mother's Day, give your husband and kids a list of five "services" you desire. The list could include: ● An hour alone so I can call a friend or soak in the tub ● A chance to sleep in until 9 a.m. ● A manicure at my favourite nail salon ● No sibling squabbles for an hour ● Whatever else you'd really love! Have your husband and kids make up coupons with each of these services, and be sure to redeem them throughout Mother's Day weekend.

TIPS FOR GREAT LIPS!

BEAUTY In these adverse weather conditions our lips are suffering and we are also having our central heating on at this time of year which also contributes to moisture loss leading to severe dryness and a high risk of chapping and splitting, the best way to care for lips during these months is to; 1. Buff them regularly ( once a week to healthy lips), use a baby soft toothbrush and add a little natural oil (olive/almond) to the bristles, gently brush your lips in circular motions, this will take away any dead or loose skin and prep them for moisturising. 2. Moisturise morning and night with a good moisturiser, this will prevent from drying. 3. Skin heals when it is kept moist so protect your lips throughout the day with either a lip balm or a lipstick, a good quality lipstick can be a good source of moisture too, be sure it contains SPF's and re-apply regularly. *Don't ever be tempted to lick your lips if they are dry, this will only make them worse as our syliva is very acidic and will only dehydrate them further!* Recommended/dermalogica Climate Control/MAC lip conditioner spf 15

12

It compliments any makeup on the face. It draws positive attention to you. It hydrates and protects the skin. It boosts a dull skin tone. It can hide pigmentation or variation of skin tone. It can balance out lip shape. It takes two minutes to apply. It lifts your mood and looks great! With all these reasons how can you not wear it? there are thousands of shades to choose from so you cant go wrong, buff your lips gently with a soft brush and apply a little moisturiser, lip renewal complex by dermalogica is a fine example for prepping before lipstick, there are many on the market so treat yourself! * Always line your lips first with a lip pencil but before you start rest your elbow on a hard surface and place your little finger on your chin, this will help steady your hand, use short feathery strokes to define your lip shape, you can draw the line beyond the natural line if your require more fullness and within the line for a slimmer lip. Once your line is perfected fill in with a lipstick,a lip brush may help you to apply this and give you more control if your lipstick is too wide. Once finished open you mouth to check you have reached the corners with the colour. If you need a little shine just add it at the end by putting some clear gloss to the inner area of the lips. Tip* If you get fed up of the colours you already have try mixing two together for a unique colour! Written by Kate Cheshire

MARCH WHERE TO GO ON HOLIDAY IN MARCH All this light and warmth on our skin, long sunny days and birdsong and a greening across the countryside of the northern hemisphere. Spring, at last! Europe is warming up for summer. Time for an early sunshine break by the sea or in the rolling hills on the Continent; or a city break as the pavement café s start putting out their chairs and tables and before the dusty streets get too hot. A last-chance ski holiday somewhere high, to catch the last of the snow. Or somewhere further afield for guaranteed sunshine and a complete cultural change. Here are the best places to go on holiday in March.

Paris Who doesn’t love Paris in the springtime? Or at any time of year, come to that - Paris is always a good idea, as Audrey Hepburn said. But go now, when the city is warming up. The trees around the Tuileries are in blossom and new greenery, when we can join the young Parisians to come out blinking into the spring sunshine, shrug off our good coats to bare a new-season Breton stripe, sit out beside the canal Saint-Martin and smoke a Gauloises, or stroll a long, golden-evening stroll along the Seine, hand in hand with someone else who loves Paris in the springtime. Here’s our pick of fun things to do in Paris, by day and after dark.

Cuba For long haul, guaranteed sunshine, Cuba is a perfect option. April and March are the best months to go to Cuba, weather-wise: when it’s pretty dry, hot-but-not-too-hot (between 19º C at night and 29º C in the daytime) and days are long and sunny. Prices, meanwhile, aren’t bad, the holiday traffic long gone. Havana is heaven; we can’t recommend it enough (one of our destinations to watch for 2016). But go to the beaches, too, for un spoilt Caribbean white sands and turquoise seas, with a Latin beat.

Marrakech Turns out, Marrakech is not hot all year round. Yes, it’s in Africa, near the Sahara but in winter it can be chilly and only marginally brighter than Manchester, and that zellig tiling doesn’t offer much cosy warmth. Our tip: wait til spring, the best time to visit Morocco, when it starts to warm up a bit and you can at least hope to waft around your pool in a floaty kaftan, rather than hunkering down with a book, wearing 12 cardigans and a scratchy djellaba. The hillsides are bursting with almond blossom, and the city comes alive with colour, and sunlight casts ornate shadows in every sensational courtyard.

Lisbon Wonderful Lisbon has absolutely every element vital for a great weekend break (or more). Burgeoning social, food, arts and design scenes; great little places to eat and drink; interesting old corners and markets to poke around; glorious architecture with just the right amount of crumbling, poster-paintbright historic facades. There are old palaces to stay in, rooftop bars with pools to hang out in. It’s beside the sea! And it’s all ridiculously, delightfully affordable. Go at any time - though April is a great time to go to Lisbon, when the days are long and sunny and the cobbled streets are beginning to warm up.

Cyprus For short haul sunshine in Europe in April, Cyprus is an excellent destination for a beach holiday, or for walking. This roughly beautiful and interesting island in the southernmost reaches of the Mediterranean is wonderful in springtime. It’s beach weather at the coast - warm enough to swim in the sea, and not yet too hot; while in the rugged interior, April is the greenest month of the year, and the hillsides are bursting with wonderful light and colour: wildflowers and orchids grow along the pathways and fragrant herbs scent the air.

Cloudy2Clear Announce Trusted Trader Partnership Consumer champions Which? have now joined the thousands of customers who recognise that Cloudy2Clear Windows really are a business that you can TRUST. The company which specialises in repairing windows which are steamed up, broken or damaged by replacing the panes – not the frames has received the coveted ‘Which Trusted Trader’ status after going through a rigorous accreditation process entirely focussed on customer service. Group Managing Director Marcus McGee believes that Which? have endorsed

Cloudy2Clear’s long standing company policy of delivering the highest standards possible at all times. ‘Our service is simple. If your double glazing has 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 25 year guarantee. But it’s not just about saving people money, although that obviously helps. Whilst a number of tradespeople perhaps don’t focus on customer care as much as they should do, 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. Locally Cloudy2Clear service North Lincoln &

the surrounding villages and manager Paul Clews agrees that this 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.

HOUSE TO HOME

MARCH Pinterest’s predictions for the hottest home trends in 2017 If 2016 didn't feel like #winning, then look ahead to 2017 - it's time for #pinning If we wanted to apply a house metaphor to 2016, it’s basically been the equivalent of buying an amazing dream house and rocking up with the keys on moving day, primed with excitement and plans for the future… only to step through the door and discover that the whole place is rotten and riddled with wood worm. Frankly, the only way to deal with a situation like that – seeing as you can’t go back in time and prevent the deal – is to rip the whole thing apart and start fresh. So, we’ve decided that’s what (mentally) we’re going to do; toss this year out like a skipfull of renovation rubble, and take consolation in the fresh slate that the upcoming year offers. Cue sparkles, trumpet fanfares and… brand new trends! 2017. Like a blank canvas, freshly plastered wall or steam-cleaned stone floor… it’s primed and ready for us to make our mark on. And, armed with Pinterest’s predictions for the hottest home ideas for the coming year, which are based on the upward fluxes in the site’s 75 billion (yes, that’s 75 BILLION) ideas, we’re raring to go. Into the woods If the increase in interest in touchable wooden tiling is anything to go by, the dominance of the classic metro tile may be coming to an end. Whether it’s diagonal slats, vertical overlaps or parquetry-like designs on the walls, tiling or cladding in rich wooden textures are a natural contender. Ways to display Clear up your vitamins, night cream jars and dirty tea cups the bedside table is smartening up its act and becoming more of a display space that ties in with the rest of the bedroom decorating scheme. Think well-considered clusters of candles and cute plants, a streamlined or statement lamp or a neatly arranged inspiring book or two. Calm bedroom, restful sleep.

Call for copper Yes, copper has been on the scene for what seems like forever in decorating trend terms, but it’s not tapering off any time soon. In fact, copper’s popularity is increasing… rapidly… still! Find new ways to apply it, or mix up a new colour palette to blend it with to keep the look fresh. Blue is the colour Move over white, grey and shades of black – now it’s all about moody blues. And why not? Deep, dark blues are beautiful with natural woods and metallic finishes, can be coupled with most other colours in the spectrum and, frankly, they’re just plain chic. Large-scale luxury On the scale of things that make you go ‘oooooh’, anything clad in marble gets our vote. The thing is, it’s not the cheapest material (being that it’s a luxury one), so when we see there’s a trend for large-scale (realistic) marble wallpaper…? Well, we’re listening.

MOTORING REVIEW

MARCH For a user-friendly ’van aimed at couples with an impressive master bedroom, be sure to check out the updated-for-2017 Elddis Encore 254 – read our review

Overview The new model year brings further enhancements for the Encore range of Elddis motorhomes. Encore continues as a four-model line-up but with a Peugeot-based low-line chassis and the latest Euro 6 engines. Here we review the four-berth Elddis Encore 254, which sports a transverse rear island bed. At less than £49,000 and with a decent spec, it looks good value.

On The Road The Elddis Encore’s cab has an agreeable spec, with cruise control, DAB radio, air-conditioning, Bluetooth and USB. There’s a large sunroof above, which allows in plenty of natural light and also opens for added ventilation. For 2017, the cab seats continue to be styled as captains’ chairs. The new Peugeot 130bhp engine is smooth and comes with a six-speed gearbox. Overall, it’s a smooth drive so longer journeys are all the more relaxing for it.

Design Elddis hasn’t gone into overdrive with changes for the 2017 season. And our test vehicle may have been a prototype version, but it had excellent fit and finish. The Encore’s exterior is finished in GRP with silver sides. New graphics have been added for 2017, offering some style to the square-ended profile. Exterior kit includes a TV aerial, a barbecue point, a satellite TV aerial connector plus an awning light Inside the 2017 Elddis Encore 254, there’s a transverse fixed rear bed, a front lounge and a nearside kitchen with a washroom opposite.

Lounging & dining Taking in the lounge area first, it’s a typical layout with caravan-style parallel sofas. There's a freestanding table that can be used for meal times. Overhead lockers are placed on both sides of the lounge, with LED corner spots and dimmable back mood lighting. The Savanna-Aquaclean upholstery is new for 2017. It’s rather smart and classy, with four domestic-sized cushions and arm rests. A TV stand is conveniently sited in the front offside corner of the lounge. Elddis also fits a TV aerial as standard, while an external socket allows a satellite dish to be connected without the need for cable to be trailed through a window. There is room beneath the seats and in the overhead lockers, so good storage is available overall.

Kitchen Although the 254 carries four berths, it’ll be bought mainly by couples. But even with four people on board, mealtimes should prove easy, thanks to the well-equipped nearside kitchen design. For 2017, the drawer handles have positive catches and are easier to use than last year’s push-in design. There are three drawers and two lower cupboards in the kitchen. You also get a Thetford oven with a dual-fuel hob in this Elddis motorhome. Worktop is limited, though – a fold-up flap at one end would help out in this area. The sink is finished in black enamel and comes with a clip-on drainer. A splashback and new kitchen cupboard styles have been introduced for 2017. The microwave oven is set low in the overhead locker, which makes it easier to use and provides room for a small locker above for more storage. The 189-litre fridge-freezer is fitted opposite the main kitchen area. Night lighting here comes in the form of two lowenergy LED ceiling-mounted down lights.

Sleeping The 254’s big feature is that rear-end bedroom. And for 2017, the fixed transverse bed now has an adjustable sliding design. The bed’s normal 6ft position can be extended by a further three inches. There’s also improved access and added floor space when the bed is retracted, which really does make quite a difference. The fixed bed comes with two side wardrobes offering enough hanging space for a couple, but probably not enough for four. Drawers are fitted in the wardrobe bases while two overhead lockers look down on the bed. Ample storage is also provided beneath the bed.

Washroom The Elddis Encore 254’s side washroom has a Thetford electric flush loo and a redesigned basin. Gone is the old-style moulded unit – for 2017 it’s a larger basin set on its own with a new style of tap. It’s a real improvement. The washroom also has a chrome radiator, heated by the Alde 3020 combi boiler unit. There’s no window, but a roof vent lets in light and provides ventilation. A wall-mounted cupboard is placed just above the loo, while the large mirror is now back-lit. The washroom is practical enough, and there’s a shower curtain too.

A Happy & Successful Retirement One thing I have learned about retirement it is rarely what you expect. No matter how diligent your efforts to prepare for your second act there’s no way to account for all the possible outcomes. It’s scary not knowing what to expect. If you are a person who only feels comfortable while in control even more so. I guess a positive side to the situation may be it is hard to be bored with such an unpredictable future. No matter what uncertainty I remain a proponent of the joys of retired life. There is nothing better than getting up each day knowing what you choose to do is up to you. The pace at which you partake is yours to set. Deadlines are dead! Flexibility is the new go word – do what you want when you want for as long as you want. There is time for a nap. There is time to dig into those interests you may not have even known you had. You can get better at things that matter to you. Each New Year can truly be a new year. Are you ready to make the most of your retirement? Are you able to find meaning outside of your job? After decades playing a particular role within a defined career some find it difficult to separate the working-you from the retired-you. They come to identify who they are with what they do on the job. Successes in life are defined by work achievements. One’s status is based upon where they reside in the corporate hierarchy. It can be confusing to start over with an undefined and alien role to fulfill. Those most successful at the retired game learn to move on. Rather than dwell on who you were they try looking toward who you can be. Big offices and fancy titles don’t matter to retired folk. Rather, what you are passionate about takes center stage. Shared interests kindle relationships. Spending time with people you enjoy and want to be with is your prerogative. For me a happy retiree is one blessed with many healthy years free from restrictions imposed by a job, free to explore new activities and adventures while growing into an independent individual

defined by who he is rather than what he does. Are you sufficiently creative to fill your hours with activities you enjoy? No one wants to be bored in retirement. Keep busy, take advantage of your free time and make the most of your second act! Not a bad mantra but not necessarily easy to realize. I think creativity is a big part. It helps if you are willing to try new things, to step outside of restrictive comfort zones and to explore. Allow yourself to make mistakes. Don’t be worried about what others say – you are doing this for you. Follow your curiosity.

Do you need others around you to be happy? I am someone who can usually entertain himself handily without the assistance of others. My wife is much more social and enjoys interacting more frequently with neighbors and friends. Knowing which way you lean can help better direct you toward what is most satisfying to you personally. It is healthy to interact with others, to feel part of a community and share the moments good as well as bad. Independence is good but you can’t always do it on your own. Being part of a group allows you to share common interests while supporting one another in the many adventures and challenges retirement promises. Are you okay doing nothing? Most recently retired people I talk with describe

feeling challenged adapting to a “less productive” post-career life. Wasting time is a big no-no conditioned into their psyche from the early days. How do they slow down without feeling guilty? It can take time to accept it is okay to do nothing. As a matter of fact it can even feel good! The beauty of retirement is you have the power to create a balance between activity and down time. Whatever works for you is right for you. It’s fine to be productive but equally okay to chill. Finding that balance just right for you will go a long way toward shaping a first-rate retirement. Retirement is great. What is perfect for me may not work for you and visa versa. That’s why the freedom each of us enjoys to create our own personal perfect retirement is so amazing. We do not have to follow any rigid plan. We can adapt and make changes along the way. We can tweak it until we get it just right. And once we do retirement living is hard to beat. With a little luck and reasonable effort retirement can most definitely be your cup of tea.

29 Station Road, Ruskington, Lincolnshire NG34 9DE It is never easy to define the essential ethos of a home for the retired, that quality which makes it different from other homes. Yet if there is one feature of life at The Chestnuts which has most of all impressed newcomers over our 25 years in business, it is the warm and friendly family atmosphere. This is partly due to our comparatively small size, but above all it is due to the sensitive and concerned attitude of our staff. We endeavour to provide our residents the very best entertainment from the local area, which is accessible to everyone. We pride ourselves on our 5 Star kitchen and the high quality of the home cooked traditional food that we serve our residents. The Chestnuts retirement home is a warm, friendly, animal loving small family run retirement home.

The natural burial ground at Norton Disney Big Wood is situated in a small clearing surrounded by Birch, Ash and Pine and is dominated by beautiful mature Oak trees These stand like sentinels watching over the glade and act to preserve its peace and tranquillity. You are able to select a burial plot from the choices provided by the burials manager who will ensure that everything is organised and taken care of in a sympathetic and efficient manner. For those who have chosen cremation we have an area adjacent to the main burial area where ashes caskets can be laid to rest. Simple, natural and reasonably priced, Norton Big Wood offers a unique opportunity; it is an alternative to traditional graveyard burials and crematorium ceremonies and provides a permanent connection with nature.

Win the perfect pampering gift this Mother's Day

Nestled in the rolling Leicestershire countryside near Melton Mowbray, less than an hour away, Ragdale Hall was recently named the Best Spa in the UK* - so what better way to treat mum this Mother's Day than with a Ragdale Hall spa day or break? Combining the multi-million pound Thermal Spa, indoor and outdoor pools, gym, tennis courts and exercise studios with the charm of traditional Victorian architecture and the original building, Ragdale Hall offers a luxury spa experience in beautiful surroundings. You'll enjoy use of the Thermal Spa, pools and all facilities - and because food is included too, you can leave everything to us and just relax! A range of spa days, spa breaks and spa treatments is available, and even special breaks designed for mums and daughters. And Ragdale Hall vouchers, from just ÂŁ25, make the perfect Mother's Day gift. For more details visit www.ragdalehall.co.uk, call 01664434831 or download the Ragdale Hall App.
