Dear Readers How amazing to see sunny skies again after what has been a long and dreary winter! Time to dust off the old mower and start work in the garden again! Check out our gardening tips on Page 47. Spring is traditionally a time of renewal and what better way to start than to look around our home and think about refurbishing and tweaking those areas we’re not happy with, so our article on Page 19 may give you a kick start! Also time to sift through those unwanted items of jewellery as the Woking Hospice shop are teaming up with auctioneers Wellers to provide a free jewellery cleaning and valuation service on Saturday 17 May. You could strike lucky with an unexpected windfall on an item you have sitting in the bottom of some old box - well done to Mary Richardson - what a great idea! Hopefully it’s not too late to register for the Brighton Marathon on 6 April - If you’re feeling fit and up for a challenge why not enter with a group of friends? Perhaps you’d like to write an article for the magazine you think others would be interested to read so do get in touch, as we would love to hear from you. Have a super Easter and enjoy the return of Spring. Diana Isherwood Stone Editor E: editor@thehorsleydirectory.co.uk www.thehorsleydirectory.co.uk

Hiatus Hernias A hernia occurs when part of the body bulges through a weakened or damaged wall of muscle or tissue. 1 in 10 people will suffer from a hiatus hernia, where the stomach is the culprit, bulging through the hiatus (a gap in the diaphragm that allows the oesophagus to pass through). If this area is weakened or damaged (herniated), the upper part of the stomach can sometimes bulge through and sit above the diaphragm, forming a hiatus hernia. But not all hiatus hernias are the same: Over 90% are sliding hiatus hernias - the upper stomach pushes up through the hiatus, under the oesophagus. Paraoesophageal (rolling) hiatus hernia - the upper stomach pushes up through the hiatus beside the oesophagus. It usually requires surgery and causes more pain than a sliding hiatus hernia. Mixed hiatus hernia - both sliding and rolling characteristics are present. Extremely rare. Smokers, women, overweight people and over 50s are more prone to hiatus hernias and they’re more prevalent in the Western world, possibly due to unhealthy low fibre diets. There isn’t always an obvious cause, but common causes are: • Persistent / violent coughing or sneezing • Persistent / violent straining on the toilet or vomiting 12

• Heavy lifting • Pregnancy / delivery • Sudden bending or straining to reach something Sometimes hiatus hernias are symptomless, but symptoms are: • pain in the left side of your chest or just under the ribs – this can be severe • acid reflux (heartburn) • physical sensation of your stomach pushing upwards • shortness of breath • sometimes nausea, belching, loss of appetite, discomfort when eating, difficulty passing stools Hiatus hernia symptoms can be mistaken for chest or heart problems and vice versa, and occasionally a hiatus hernia can become strangulated, requiring urgent attention. So if you have symptoms, always see a doctor – or visit A&E if you’re suddenly in great pain. Unless your doctor suspects a strangulated hernia, they usually won’t refer you for surgery immediately (if at all). Instead they’ll suggest ways to improve symptoms and prevent aggravating the hernia. Treatment • Lifestyle / Diet changes - lose excess weight and give up smoking. Avoid eating late in the evening or before lying down. Small, light meals are best. Certain foods are inclined to cause heartburn,

YOUR TOWN, YOUR RESOURCE

so if affected avoid them: alcohol, caffeinated or fizzy drinks, peppermint, spicy or fatty foods, onions, garlic, citrus and tomatoes. • Sleeping – avoid sleeping flat, preferably by raising the head of your bed; using lots of pillows may put more pressure on the abdomen. • Painkillers – usually antiinflammatories e.g. ibuprofen, or opioids like co-codamol or co-dydramol, depending on your symptoms. • Antacids and alginates – to soothe the stomach and reduce acidity. • Proton Pump Inhibitors – e.g. Omeprazole, to reduce the production of stomach acid. • H2 receptor antagonists – e.g Ranitidine, to block histamine and so reduce stomach acid. If these steps fail, or there are concerns about damage to your stomach or oesophagus, then surgery will be recommended - usually by Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication (LNF). This is keyhole surgery carried out under general anaesthetic, which puts the stomach into the correct position and tightens the diaphragm around the oesophagus, using part of the upper stomach. It’s a common, simple, low-risk operation – so don’t be put off. If you suspect you have a hiatus hernia, visit your doctor. By Alison Runham

What is this? ... It is a QR code, or Quick Response Code.

The QR readers are available for most smartphones and are usually free to download and use. Once installed you simply select the App, point the phone’s camera at the QR code and you will be taken to the website. The codes can be printed anywhere and, when scanned by a smartphone, take the user straight to the chosen website. Try it for yourself - this one goes to the Smith Pearman website! For businesses, they provide an easy (and cheap) way of getting potential customers to go from an advertisement or product packaging to the business website (or indeed, any selected page on the website). QR codes can be generated free on a number of websites. You simply enter the webpage address (thehttp://.......) and download the resulting QR code which you can use on adverts, fliers, packaging etc.

Increasingly, you will see them on magazine and newspaper adverts, on advertising hoardings and notice boards, on labels attached to exhibits and even on business cards. They give the user an easy way to get further information without having to note anything down. In 2011, the Royal Dutch Mint issued a coin with QR code on – taking you to the webpage giving details about the coin and the building it celebrated. There are even gravestones with the QR code on (carved in stone of course) linking to a website with details of the deceased. The codes were originally devised for the Japanese car industry to keep track of components but are now used world-wide for all sorts of applications. QR code is actually a trademark of Denso Corporation who also hold the patent, but use of the codes is free.

Charity shops are known to be great places to pick up unusual and rare gems. Now the Woking Hospice shop in Station Parade is taking this well established fact even further by teaming up with Wellers Auctioneers on Saturday 17 May to provide a free jewellery cleaning and valuation service from 10am-3:30pm.

Charity Shop teams up with Wellers

“We want to offer our customers something a bit different, but also hope that this unusual collaboration will encourage a few new faces to come and see us,” explains Shop Manager Mary R i c h a rd s o n . B e i n g a k e e n follower of the Antiques Road Show she is hoping that someone will get a pleasant surprise on the day; “It would be so exciting if someone discovered that their heirloom was worth a small fortune, and I may even bring a few pieces in myself to see if it could be my lucky day,” says Mary.

Elliot Franks, from the wellestablished Guildford based auction house, will provide the free jewellery cleaning and valuation on the day. Should anyone be interested in selling their items through auction

he will also make sure that Wellers donate a percentage of their commission back to the charity. Everyone is welcome to attend the event, and people will be seen on a first come first basis.

10 Ways To Save On Renovating Your Home Building work can be expensive, but if you’re canny you can keep costs down, says Katherine Sorrell By Katherine Sorrell 1. Use trade suppliers: they’re much cheaper than their highstreet equivalents. Open an account with your local builders merchant, or else try specialists such as Screwfix or Plumbase. Do your research beforehand, wear appropriate clothing and act confident. If you need to ask advice, though, do – these guys are the specialists and will probably be only too happy to help. 2. Borrow rather than buy expensive tools that you’re unlikely to use very often. Ask friends or try a local hire shop. Before you start, though, make sure you know exactly how to use the tool safely. 3. Do as much work as you can yourself, and ask friends and family to help. You may be able to improve your DIY skills by studying a good manual, taking an evening class or even attending a specialist course. Only tackle jobs you can manage safely, however. Complex or tricky jobs should be left to the professionals, as should anything that involves electricity, gas or working at a height. 4. Try to design fitted furniture such as shelves or cupboards with the dimensions of standard materials in mind. This will allow you to either buy off the shelf or will save on

cutting-waste, and therefore cost you less. 5. Grab the best bargains in sales and clearances, and at factory outlets, seconds shops and discount warehouses. This may mean planning your decorating around a oneoff sale, or waiting until you have acquired just the right discounted item, but your patience will pay off. 6. How about second-hand? You never know what you might find if you scour the right places, from auctions and junk shops to salvage yards. The golden rule is to be prepared – if you’re out and about, write out a list of relevant dimensions and keep it, together with a mini tape measure. If you do buy second-hand radiators, taps or electrical items, have them fitted by someone who’s qualified to check that they’re totally safe and functioning correctly. 7. Something for nothing? Some people swear by the fine art of ‘skip dipping’. If you’re going to try this, never trespass, and ask the owner’s permission first. Much easier, though, is to sign up to an internet-based network such as Freecycle, which connects people who are giving things away with people who will happily take them off their

hands. 8. Buy wallpaper and fabric from ends-of-line and discount suppliers. And avoid paying extra for special colours from expensive paint companies – have your chosen colour mixed for you, in whatever finish you require. Johnstone’s and Dulux both offer this service. 9. Use decorating tricks to save money. If you can’t afford carpet, for example, either sand your floorboards or paint them, and add a simple rug for a clean, contemporary look. Instead of bespoke curtains, choose Roman or roller blinds, which use much less fabric and are correspondingly a great deal cheaper. Can’t afford to have the glass in an overlooked window beautifully etched? Then buy some stickon window film, which is easy to use and inexpensive. 10. Think laterally. You can completely transform a bathroom by changing the taps, loo seat, bath panel, window treatment and shower curtain. In a kitchen, consider replacing either the cupboard doors and drawer fronts, or carefully repainting them. Image: Roller blinds are smart and simple – and much less expensive than curtains. These rich brown blinds with an on-trend print start at £50 (60x60cm), Luxaflex Sunway (0800 652 7799; www.sunwayblinds.co.uk).

It IS Easy Being Green

Get clued up this month ahead of Earth Day on the 22nd. Kermit actually had it all wrong: with so many great books around to help us be more environmentally aware, it’s just a matter of making some simple changes, and finding the right books to help us along the way.

The Green Book by Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas M. Kostigen This book is packed with information about small efforts that can make a big difference. It has thought-provoking facts and figures for when you’re standing there cleaning your teeth with the tap running. There are celebrity hints and tips including pearls of wisdom from Robert Redford, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Timberlake to name but a few.

1960s. This hugely-influential work, and Carson’s findings on the destruction caused by pesticides changed laws and helped to get harmful substances banned from use in the USA and many other countries. She opens the book by quoting Keats: ‘The sedge is wither’d from the lake, and no bird sings.’ Thanks to the pioneer of the ‘Deep Ecology’ movement, the Carson revolution lives on within every new reader.

Last Chance to See… by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine Bestselling author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams has teamed up with zoologist Mark Carwardine for a round the world voyage in search of some of the planet’s most critically endangered species. On their journey they encounter some bizarre and astounding creatures that are perilously close to being wiped out altogether. Adams’ reactions are often those of someone coming face to face with an alien species and it’s often hilarious.

How Bad Are Bananas? : The Carbon Footprint of Everything by Mike BernauLee We talk about our giant, trampling, carbon footprints, but exactly how bad is it to take a transatlantic flight, or use a plastic carrier bag, or buy bananas? This book takes us, step by step through around 100 everyday items and occurrences to show the impact our daily existence is having on the planet. It’s an entertaining, though sometimes disturbing, read.

Gore writes in a succinct, passionate and compelling way about the need to halt climate change and react now, rather than thinking it’s something that’s happening at a glacial pace. He brings urgency and momentum to the debates, insisting that governments need to stop ignoring this most inconvenient of truths: that our planet is heating-up and we have a critical situation on our hands. Mates, Dates and Saving the Planet by Cathy Hopkins If you’re like, totally into saving the planet and stuff (and you’re a teenage girl) then this edition of Cathy Hopkins’ popular teenage series is ‘totes amazeballs’ for sorting out your carbon footprint. Lucy, Izzie, TJ and Nesta have loads of great top tips on how to make a difference, one knickers drawer at a time. There’s plenty of advice on how to look good whilst being good and showing you actually care about our planet. If you’re not a teenage girl, but live with one, then this book could help drastically reduce household bills. Saving the planet has never been so cool.

GREAT DESIG


A Lasting Power of Attorney is now as important as a Will

0

Do you know why?

0

If you lost mental capacity through an accident or an illness like dementia you would no longer be able to make your own decisions. You would be totally reliant on those around you such as family or friends. However if you don’t have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) they could not take control of your finances or take care of your personal welfare. Frightening when you think about it ! In 2007 the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) came fully into force. If you do not have an LPA then family and friends would have to apply to the Court of Protection to be appointed a deputy to look after your affairs. The application process is lengthy and complex and fraught with problems. When someone applies to become a deputy to look after your affairs the initial fees and annual fees that would have to be paid would be as follows:

• A security bond would also be needed and based on an estate valued at £ 250,000 these can typically cost on average £ 500.00* per annum. • The time and expense of making annual returns to the Court of Protection

• There is an application fee of £400.00* payable

It is far more sensible whilst you have mental capacity to safeguard your future by putting in place a Lasting Power of Attorney now. This will allow it to be used, should it be needed without the initial and ongoing expense and annual reporting to the Court of Protection that would apply without one.

• There is also an annual supervision fee of up to £ 320.00* dependent on the level of supervision necessary.

Mandara Wills is expertly positioned to arrange a Lasting Power of Attorney for clients at a fraction of the cost you would endure should one be required but not be in place.

Nancy City of Stanislas By Solange Hando Just over an hour east of Paris by high speed rail, Nancy, the ancient capital of Lorraine, is one of the finest cities in France, all thanks to a deposed Polish King. In 1737, sixty year old Stanislas sought refuge at the French Court where his son in law, Louis XV, placed the newlyacquired Duchy of Lorraine in his care. Overwhelmed by gratitude, Stanislas devoted his personal fortune and the rest of his life to his new subjects, feeding the poor, encouraging the arts and planning an architectural showcase, a “royal town”, on former wasteland. He died aged 89 after falling in his fireplace. On that day, 23rd February 1766, the Duchy of Lorraine was returned to the French king.

Louis XV. Yet this is just one of three world heritage sites in the heart of the town. Walk through the Arch and you are greeted by the lovely Place Carrière with its fountains and statues, antique gods and leafy avenue leading to the colonnaded crescent of the former Governor’s Palace. Alliance, the third UNESCO square, is a quiet little place tucked in the back streets around a gurgling Italian-style fountain and trees twittering with birds.

Today, Nancy owes to Stanislas one of Europe’s most dazzling squares, aptly named after him, lined with classical buildings, fountains and wrought iron gates covered in gold leaf. Relax on a café-terrace under the kindly gaze of the “Benefactor” and the view takes your breath away, the elegant City Hall, the TheatreOpera House, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Triumphal Arch bearing a medallion of 40

But just steps away from the 18th century city, the old medieval district leads you through a jumble of winding lanes, old-fashioned shops, flower stalls and private mansions festooned in sculpted balustrades and stone staircases. The old ducal palace now houses the Lorraine Museum while the ‘Rue Gourmande’ beckons with the aroma of quiche Lorraine or traditional Mirabelle plum tart. King Stanislas would be pleased for he loved his food and is widely acclaimed for introducing the popular volau-vent and rum baba. Beyond its historical centre, Nancy is a modern city

YOUR TOWN, YOUR RESOURCE

of broad avenues and pedestrian lanes, colourful markets, pavement cafés, bright department stores and exclusive boutiques gleaming with designer fashion, jewellery and highly prized local crystal. In the early 1900s, this vibrant town gave birth to a new art movement, covering every discipline from painting and sculpture to craft and architecture. It began as Art Nouveau with soft flowing lines symbolising a return to nature and later evolved into the more sober Art Deco but whatever one’s preference, Nancy is a treasure trove of architectural wonders. Wide-eyed visitors gaze at the ornate villas sprinkled in the suburbs, or the opulent Brasserie Excelsior at the heart of town, before strolling down to the river Meurthe or enjoying a cruise on the canal. But when the sun sets over the hills, it’s time to return to the square where golden lights twinkle all around and the dark silhouette of Stanilas the Benefactor keeps watch over his flock. This is just as it should be, a unique and enchanting sight, for no other city in France owes so much to a Polish king.

Garden of Delights How tech can take the grunt out of gardening

It’s that time of year again: spring has sprung and the grass has started to rise. While robot lawnmowers haven’t quite reached bargain basement prices just yet - a robomower such as Husquvarna’s Automower 305G has an RRP of £1,399, and even the cheapest online shops charge around £850 - technology can still help: firms such as Bosch, Greenworks and Mountfield all offer battery-powered lawnmowers that offer the convenience of cable-free mowing without the noise, smell and hassle of petrol engines. Prices range from just over £200 to around £500. What’s even easier than a cordless mower? That’s right: grass that you don’t have to mow in the first place. Hi-tech turf (www.hitechturf.co.uk) looks like grass and feels like grass, but it’s entirely artificial - and if you have terrible memories of plasticky, jaggy artificial turf you’ll be relieved to discover that this is a very different proposition. For around £29 per square metre (for HT Luxury) you can lay a lawn that looks just like the real thing without any of the work. If your budget’s a bit more limited then there are more affordable options including a budget artificial turf at £7.99 per square metre.

Lawns aren’t the only places where technology can make life easier. Battery power has reached the point where it’s good enough for seriously demanding garden tasks. Black & Decker will happily sell you battery-powered chainsaws, pruning saws and loppers. The batteries deliver plenty of oomph - the chainsaw will power through up to 150 3.5cm branches before it runs out of puff - but boffins have yet to invent a device that ensures we remember to charge the power tools before we actually need them. More modest gardening can benefit from gadgetry too. Hozelock’s auto-watering system sticks a timer onto your tap, turning it on and off at the times you program, and options range from a simple sprinkler to an entire micro-irrigation system. Some timers even have rain sensors that mean they won’t turn on the tap if the weather forecast turned out to be overly optimistic. Not all gardening gadgets need electricity to function. The iconic Leatherman multi-tool isn’t exactly cheap, but its products - and their many imitators - offer a huge range of tools in one handy gadget. For example the Leatherman Charge AL includes two kinds of pliers,

a knife, a saw and a serrated knife, a wood and metal file, wire cutters and wire strippers. If you find gardening is, literally, a pain, it’s worth taking a look at the range of gardening tools made by Radius Garden, whose slogan is “Garden more. Hurt less.” The odd-looking tools have been designed with ergonomic grips to make them more comfortable and less likely to aggravate repetitive strain injuries, and the range includes trowels, forks, transplanters, weeders and cultivators. Expect to pay around £9 for each individual tool or around £30 for a set of four. If taking the grunting out of gardening sounds like something you’d like to do, you might also want to consider a device such as Fiskar’s Weed Puller (currently £25), which is designed to remove weeds without using chemicals or wrecking your lower back: it’s a long L-shaped stick containing deep-reaching stainless steel claws that effortlessly grab weeds by the roots. It might not be an exciting robot mower but anything that helps with a hard day’s weeding sounds like a great gadget to us.

First Drive: Infiniti Q50 S Hybrid By James Batchelor, editor of CarDealerMagazine.co.uk What is it? Remember the Infiniti G37? No, we didn’t think so. When it quietly appeared on the scene in 2009, it was one of the first Infiniti’s Brits could buy. But with, how should we say this, interesting styling, a thirsty 320bhp 3.7-litre V6 petrol under the bonnet and acres of switchgear poached from lowrent Nissans, it wasn’t terribly successful. But that was then and Infiniti now has a far more appealing proposition for the nation’s fleet managers used to buying 3 Series BMWs and Mercedes C-Classes. We’ve already driven this car abroad but now we’re one of the first to slip behind the wheel of a British car – and Infiniti UK is understandably proud of its latest product. “It’s a halo car for us,” a spokesperson told us on our test drive. “A real performance car with the added benefit of low running costs.” What’s under the bonnet? We have the all-wheel-drive Q50S Hybrid on test – you could opt for a version fitted with Infiniti’s new 2.2-litre diesel – and it sports a 364bhp 3.5-litre V6 petrol mated to a 50kW electric motor. It tops out at 155mph and reaches 60mph in 5.1 seconds. To put that into perspective, a BMW M5 will reach 60mph in 4.1 seconds but the Q50S will return a combined MPG of 41.5 and emit 159g/km

of CO2. It’s quick and punchy, but it won’t be the best-seller in the UK – that’ll be the diesel. What’s the spec like? It seems to have everything you could want from this type of saloon. The Q50S Hybrid retails at £41,635 and comes absolutely loaded with tech and electric wizardry. The headlines are: full leather upholstery, NASA-developed ‘fatigue free’ front seats, climate control, parking sensors, Bluetooth with streaming and Infiniti’s clever new infotainment system. The latter not only looks neat but works well too – although we weren’t behind the wheel for long so we can’t say how easy it would be to live with. The Q50S has another crafty little piece of tech too. Called Active Lane Control, the system reads the white lines on the road and keeps the car tracking safely between them. Any rivals? Well, it’s the three big guns that make up the biggest competition – namely, BMW’s 3 Series, the Mercedes-Benz CClass and the Audi A4. There’s no doubt the Infiniti matches the Bavarian threesome in many areas and it does have individuality up its sleeve too. For other left-field choices, there’s also the Volvo S60. What’s it like to drive? There’s no doubt it’s smooth and relaxing to drive.

Complaints have been aimed at the Q50S’s steering-by-wires system that can feel artificial. But on our admittedly short test drive, we had little complaint. While it doesn’t match the sheer precision of the 3 Series, the Q50S can be set up for the driver’s tastes – whether sporting or comfort – and is perfectly adequate. A hybrid saloon will spend most of its time navigating city streets and motorways – and for this the Q50 would seem to excel. The verdict This is a car with some of the tightest shut-lines in the business and seriously impressive build quality. Add in smooth driving dynamics and European styling, the Q50S is a fine car. Whether it’ll make a dent in the executive saloon car market is yet to be seen, but Infiniti deserves to do well with this car.

The Knowledge Model: Infiniti Q50S Hybrid AWD Price: £41,635 Engine: 3.5-litre V6, hybrid Power: 364bhp, 544Nm Max speed: 155mph (limited) 0-60mph: 5.1 seconds MPG: 41.5 mpg (combined) Emissions: 159g/km CO2

Make it a marathon effort for Air Ambulance

Brighton Marathon Night-flying Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance is appealing for runners to sign up for this year’s Brighton Marathon and help save lives 24 hours a day. The life-saving charity officially launched its night flying service last month (December 18th ) and now needs an extra £1million-a-year to keep both helicopters flying. The air ambulance still has charity places available for runners who can commit to raising a minimum of £500. Among this year’s entrants is Kings Hill Properties owner Tony Petty and his colleague Neil Johnson, from Kent, who are aiming to raise a total of £10,000. Tony said: “I’m 54 and this will be my first marathon. I’m doing it to get fit and to raise money for a worthy cause.

6th April 2014 For every property that we sell, £250 will go towards my fundraising and I’ve just started training. In 10 days I’m up to six miles so I’ve got another 20 to go which is an awful long way.” All Air Ambulance entrants will be given an opportunity to visit the helicopter base and meet the pilot, doctor and paramedic - subject to emergency call-outs They will also receive a fundraising pack including sponsor forms, support and advice from the charity’s fundraising team, a training guide and an Air Ambulance running vest. Anyone interested in running the marathon on April 6th should call Community Fundraising Officer Michelle Woodland on 01622 833823 or email michellew@kssairambulance.org.uk

Pet Projects Pet owners are famously free with their cash: nothing’s too expensive for a beloved dog, cat, budgie or Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. It’s taken a while for the technology industry to notice, but now they have and there are all kinds of high-tech gizmos for your furry or feathered friends. Forget automatic pet flaps and anti-bark collars: the new wave of pet tech includes health monitors, cameras and even exercisers. The star of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show or its pet division at least - was Voyce, which is essentially a fitness tracker for dogs. It isn’t cheap - it’s around £200 for the collar and another £10 per month - but the pitch is that by monitoring your dog’s activity, breathing, heart rate and calories it’ll give you early warning of any potentially dangerous and expensive health problems. Voyce will go on sale later this year, and it’s entering a market that’s already looking a bit crowded: in addition to Voyce there are pet fitness trackers including Fitbark (around £60) and Whistle (also around £60). If you think that’s a bit odd, wait until you hear No More Woof: the £50 No More Woof

gadget promises to convert doggy brainwaves into human speech. Don’t expect to engage in scintillating conversation with your ShihTzu, though: the repertoire is currently limited to “I’m hungry”, “I’m tired”, and “who are you?” The developers say that No More Woof is a work in progress, though, and early sales of the device will enable them to make it smarter, more useful and - we hope - more comfortable. We can’t imagine our own dog putting up with a No More Woof headset for more than a few seconds. Another way to get an insight into your pet’s life is to shell out for an Eyenimal camera. The Petcam is available for cats and dogs, attaches to your pet’s collar and records whatever he or she sees; you can then transfer the footage to your computer. Expect to pay around £60. Some pet gadgets appear to be practical jokes, but the GoDogGo is perfectly serious: its Automatic Ball Thrower is a £99 gadget based on the automated tennis ball machines that tennis players use in training. The GoDogGo will happily hurl tennis balls 5 to 10 metres, exercising your dog while you sit back and

relax. Have you ever wished you could take your pet bird for a walk? The people behind the Feather Tether hope you have, because their £12.99 bird harness means your bird can go wherever you are without fear of injury or “the tragedy of fly-aways”. The harness comes in five sizes and a range of colours. If you can’t always be with your pet, Petcube might be the answer: it’s a smartphonepowered gadget which contains a wide-angle camera and microphone for streaming high definition video and audio to your iPhone or iPad. There are speakers and a low-intensity laser pointer to transmit your voice and amuse your cat respectively. It’ll cost around £160 when it goes on sale in May. If you don’t have a pet, the iPhone/iPad app also enables you to log into other people’s public Petcubes (with their permission) and annoy their pets instead - and if it’s just the laser pet toy you want, the Frolicat Bolt automatic laser toy is currently £20.01 on Amazon.

Cake and Bake Apricot and Apple Strudel Layers of light and crispy filo pastry wrapped around a sweet fruit filling makes a delicious pud that tastes just as good warm as cold. Serve with tangy crème fraiche, thick Greek yogurt or vanilla custard

Ingredients:

1.

Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5. Peel, core and finely chop the apples and place in a bowl with the lemon zest, apricots, breadcrumbs, mixed spice and 3 tbsp of the Demerara sugar. Mix well.

2.

Place 2 sheets of the filo pastry, slightly overlapping, on a large greased baking tray. Brush them liberally with some of the melted butter then arrange 2 more sheets on top. Brush with more butter and top with the last 2 sheets.

3.

Spoon the apple mixture along one long pastry edge, leaving a 3cm border. Sprinkle over another 3 tbsp of Demerara sugar. Fold in the two short ends of the pastry then roll up loosely from one long side to enclose the filling, making sure the seal is underneath. Brush the pastry all over with any remaining melted butter and sprinkle over the rest of the Demerara sugar.

4.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35-45 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and golden. Check after 25 minutes and cover loosely with foil if the pastry begins to go too brown. Serve warm or cold dusted with icing sugar.

• 2 large cooking apples • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon • 85g no-need-tosoak dried apricots, chopped • 50g fresh white breadcrumbs • 1 tsp ground mixed spice • 7 tbsp Demerara sugar • 6 large sheets filo pastry (approx 200g) • 50g unsalted butter, melted • Icing sugar, for dusting

Serves 4 - 6

TIP

Adding breadcrumbs to the fruit mixture helps to soak up any juices and stop the pastry from becoming soggy. You can replace them with ground almonds, if liked.
