ello & welcome to the July’s edition of the mkflyers.

As you are all aware it is not Stuart this month doing our words page as he & his wife Kim were greeted with the most precious gift of all this month the birth of their gorgeous daughter Lucy Oliphant who was born 29th May 2014 @ 17:49 weighing a very healthy 8lb 7oz. Stuart has taken a few weeks off to spend with Kim Harry & Lucy so I have had the pleasure of taking the limelight this month. What a month we have had at mkflyers, I was given the chance to test out HotPod Yoga based in Newport Pagnell this class was amazing check out my review on page 36. I would like to personally thank all our new clients this month but I do not have enough space so please check the pages to find out more. If you have any events in Milton Keynes please let us know so we can add to our ‘what’s on’ page on the website.

Check out www.mkflyers.co.uk/whats-on to see what’s going on in July and the coming months. In the center of the flyers we have a pull-out where businesses have sponsored a beach ball for our chosen charity this year - The Air Ambulance. Thank you to all our sponsors from everyone at mkflyers I would also like to congratulate our competition winner this month Sharon Henshaw who won a £50 Dri Wash valeting voucher.

Cloudy2Clear Windows - Service with a smile!

I

t’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 Billy Harley 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 the Milton Keynes, Bedford and Leighton Buzzard areas and Billy 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 Billy a cal l for a free quotation on 0800 61 21 118 and he’ll be happy to help!

Positive living How far will your life take you? When we are small a whole life time can seem an unmeasurable expanse of time. The older we get the short that measure becomes in a year, a decade, a life lived… Yet what will we leave in our wake when our own time is up? What will we leave as our mark? Will life itself have benefited by our presence; what have we added to or altered because we felt compelled or called to achieve? What will others say about us – about the kind of person we were – about how life without us in it will be different? There is no dress rehearsal. Every day we wake up life is real. We create a whole story with ourselves as the main leading character. All things stem from us. We take things to heart, we get mad or sad because we don’t feel loved or understood quite enough, we feel taken for granted or misjudged and sometimes used; we feel stressed and alone even when life is crowded with people, responsibilities and commitments. Yet given the fact that most things we have, do or undertake were chosen by us in the first place, why aren’t we in our happy ever after? Why doesn’t life work out as it should, as we’d prefer or expect? Life is a gift. We chose to be here to live, love and explore; to perfect the soul journey we are on. All that we do is encoded within our soul’s blue print, forever visible – yet unseen and unrealised by us – for eons to come. (I am I) This has always been so. Through many different lifetimes each soul is developed, through choice, belief, thought and free will. The first free thought you had begun the programming of your own life unfolding. Every free choice or action – or sometimes forced response, added more content to the force of that story. Free word and action makes free will a physical thing. You manifest what you think, want or need into actual being. Your own power to create is immense. This is your birth right. (I am I) No matter who you are – what you believe – your religion – your status – your sex or sexuality – you are powerful, not powerless. You have control of your life still unfolding and overall your present life’s destiny. Nothing exists that you can’t overcome, explore or express. No one has power over you. No one is more important or has more right to be happier, luckier or better than you. In the eyes of life itself for the purpose of evolution, all people – all souls – are equal. Never before has there been such an incredible time frame as this. Never before have change and progression been so easy, individually and globally en-mass. What you experience in your own life day to day is the same thing that’s going on everywhere, perhaps in a different order, presenting in different ways, but the same. Stress is still stress; worry, pain, loss and sadness are the same for each soul, just presented in different manners. How we each overcome these fundamental things is crucial to how we each then move forward. Nothing is given to hurt, harm or make us break, regardless of how we may deeply believe this, but then that very belief is the key. We cannot control the force of what happens but we absolutely control how we respond, react or take things on board. We control how we overcome; the next steps we put into action; what we then attract to us and how we move forward from that focal point. Life is a live living entity in its own right and individually we add our own

thoughts, actions, intent, beliefs and life force to it as input. The energy we create through a life time of being here, we add to life, which adds more to its own health and programming. Think of life as a mirror. What you expect or give out - it must reflect back. What you ask for fundamentally – must appear. If you believe life is hard or a cruel place to be – it is this that you will receive back. Life thinks that you want hard and cruel – so you’ll see it everywhere… If you believe life will uphold you and help you; if you believe what you need will appear or be easy to achieve; it’s then this that will come bouncing back. If you are worried and stressed more often than not, more reasons to worry and stress will come forward. If you live life in lack – lack of time, lack of money, lack of energy, friends, love and resources, it’s these once again that you will receive – because these are the directives you’ve fed personally yourself into life’s mainframe, much like uploading information to a motherboard… Every soul is individual and unique. Each one is a powerful creative force and identity in its own right. You are not broken. You are no-bodies victim or fool. You have life running through you. Nothing blocks your path or holds you down. You are free. You have the right to be happy in a life that’s well lived. The whole world is at your disposal. Yes you have commitments and things you must do – but these you once chose for yourself, even those things that you couldn’t possibly suppose that you would. In the face of adversity we often grow most. Even and especially when we don’t seem to realise… What are your dreams? What, if you could choose – would you most like to alter or change for the better, without hurting anyone else – from a perspective of peace, truth and love? What is it you need to get happy? Remember that this is your story. Only you feel the things that you do. Love from the whole of your heart. ‘Understand’ where before ‘forgiveness’ would have seemed more appropriate. See all people as souls in their own right - not meaning to cause pain or harm - but more stuck in their own story for now. (I am I) No one is separate; all souls connect; therefore all add to what’s occurring on life’s surface; all add force to the deeper story which is now and what will be as time continues. (I am I) If you don’t like your life – you have the power to set into place the steps that will turn things around. You are master – not slave – to your destiny.

Until next month, Be safe, well and happy… Be all you search outwardly for…

The New Citroen DS3 Cabrio Reviewed 03/08/13

Citroen DS3 Goes Topless I have to say at first I wasn’t sure about this car as it’s like a half convertible but it did grow on me.

The DS3 has been a massive success for Citroen. They have really gone after the Mini and Audi A1 market, and with its great looks and drive, there’s no surprise they have shifted 36,000 of them in the UK alone. So it is only natural they have now come out with a Cabrio model - there is currently only a 1.6 petrol version but they are releasing a diesel later on in the year. I tested the 1.6 THP 155 in a D-sport model and it was a good spec with a very nippy engine. The main negative is that when the roof is down full, you can’t see behind you, but the positives definitely out way the bad; like you can sit 3 people in the back (which is unusual on a soft top) and the boot is great when the roof is up, so ideal for the school runs if you can live with putting the seat up every time someone gets in the back as its only comes in a 3dr. You can still personalise your DS3 with different coloured roofs and mirrors to the car, and you can

even get purple leather if you’re that way inclined! The drive is very smooth and quiet, and with a great stereo with bluetooth, & lots of gloss and stainless steel, the inside feels like a real quality car. It even has a button in the car you can press and call Citroen if you have a problem with the car or you have broken down and it will connect you directly to Citroens help line!! The diesel will be the one to look out for as the petrol version is a bit thirsty and if you can, stretch to the D-sport + that comes with nice little extras like leather as standard. MPH = 47.9 Combined Top speed =132 0-60 =8.2 CO2=137 On the road price £19,136 (Lease price £199+vat over 2 years with 6 payments up front based on 10k miles a year)

Where there’s a Will…

W

ho would you go to if you needed heart surgery?

Would you download some information from the internet and have a go yourself? Or perhaps go to that place in town that offers cheap operations? Perhaps buy a DIY kit? No, of course not. You’d see a professional surgeon. Someone who is qualified and knows what they’re doing. So, wouldn’t you go to a professional when you want to make a Will or a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)? Because they could be the most important documents you will ever sign. If Wills or LPAs are not done properly, this will not be discovered until they have to be used, when it’ll be too late. If your Will is wrong or possibly totally invalid, you won’t be around to correct it. The number of Wills contested in the Courts almost doubled between 2006 and 2011, partly due to the increase in Wills that were ‘homemade’, not properly drawn up or not witnessed correctly.

Anyone can set up as a “will writer” Unfortunately, anyone can sell Wills and LPAs, without any formal qualifications, experience, insurance or even any training. If you’re looking for someone to prepare a Will for you, do check carefully to make sure that it’s someone who is properly qualified and insured. A solicitor, for example, like a doctor, has to pass rigorous examinations and undergo years of training before being allowed to practise, will be regulated and must be insured.

Why make a Will? Although there are statutory rules that apply if someone dies without making a Will, they don’t always work in the way that

you would expect. Even a spouse or civil partner may not inherit everything. Apart from providing for children financially, who would you want to take care of them as they grow up? If you leave no instructions, or there is a family dispute, a Court may have to decide.

How much does it cost? My fees are clearly stated and there are no “hidden extras”. I’ll personally oversee signing and witnessing to make sure everything is done properly and even visit you at home if it’s more convenient for you. Visit my website for more information and details of my fixed fees. Alan P. Squires Solicitor & Mediator www.alanpsquires.co.uk email: squires.legal@btintern et.com telephone: 01908 311865

MP’s Diary Bucks Biz = Expansion & Growth An invitation for me visit Bucks Biz in Newport Pagnell was yet another clear message that economic growth in Milton Keynes is going from strength to strength. Bucks Biz is a family business operating over three sites in MK; Bletchley Business Campus, Denbigh Business Park and Interchange House, Newport Pagnell. The 110 serviced business units at Interchange House span 100,000 sq. ft. and were bought by CJ Muscat Properties in 2010. Since then they have invested £6m to upgrade the building which includes a hair salon gym and café. Bucks Biz houses companies who provide employment to more than 200 people and has seen their tenant’s individual growth spiral upward ahead of national averages. On the whole 60% of their business is new business start-ups, with unique opportunities to customise their space within the building giving their customers flexibility now and in the future. My tour was led by Joe Muscat owner of Muscat Properties and Jay Raj, Director of Clock Property. Clock Property were established in March 2014 and are a firm of commercial property consultants, surveyors & agents who are also based in Milton Keynes. The business provides professional services ranging from sales, leasing and acquisitions of office, industrial and retail properties. For me, Bucks Biz clearly have a winning formula, their continuing expansion is encouraging and it is a strong positive message to MK businesses that the economy is now on the rise.

Beaver Scout Colony took up the challenge and created a spectacular sensory garden at Middleton Primary School. At the end of the 6 week project, with the designs and materials being generously sponsored by Dobbies, all six plots were filled with wild flowers to attract butterflies, insects, bees and a variety of other wildlife to what was otherwise an urban area. Andy said, “I wanted to give our young people an opportunity to experience an outdoor activity and for them to champion all the amazing opportunities and adventures we offer in the Scouting movement.” Arriving at the opening ceremony, I was very impressed with the transformation and I congratulate the Beavers Group. The sensory garden is an inspirational project which will add to the children’s enjoyment and enhance their education. Do you have a couple of hours to spare to support Andy? Without volunteers, his waiting list of young “eager Beavers” will just keep growing.

Garden View There’s a worm at the bottom of the garden

W

ould you like to turn your kitchen scraps into high-quality, extrarich compost and plant food?

You would? Well invest in a wormery and before long you’ll be knee-deep in vermicompost and leachate (that’s worm poo and liquid food to the uninitiated!) I’m a fairly recent wormery convert. I had it in my head that they were smelly, difficult things to keep but I was wrong. A wormery is basically a tiered box-system which contains specialist composting worms who just love to munch on kitchen waste. The worms work their way up through the levels leaving compost in their wake. As each tray is fully composted it can be removed, dug into the garden or used to plant containers, then replaced

at the top of the stack and refilled with waste. There are two types of worms: Dendrobaena worms and and Tiger worms. Both are epigeic worms, which means they live on the surface of the soil or in the top ten inches of the top-soil under the litter layer. There’s little to choose between them. Both are native to this country and harmless to other species. Both can survive from 3-27 degrees Celsius and can double their population every 4-5 months. Dendrobaena worms are larger though and possibly more suited to the wet and slightly acidic conditions of a wormery. Being larger they may also be better at aerating the compost. There are different sizes of composter, from mini-composters to suit a single person to larger ones which can deal with the waste produced by a whole family.

Oh, and kids love worm eries... it’ll become a real talki ng point!

HotPod Yoga Review by Kelly Thompson

G

et ready for the ‘hottest’ session in town. Once you have tried this I know you are going to want more…. I guarantee you!

I was given the pleasure by Emma Brinsden the owner & instructor of HotPod Yoya Milton Keynes, a heated pop-up inflatable studio based in Newport Pagnell. This is a very intensive, balanced physical workout storing calm and clarity to the mind in cocoonlike pods. In 37 degrees heat this warms the muscles and aids flexibility as well as making the heat work harder. All this and purifying sweat help to ensure maximum benefit from your effort. I am not going to lie, this was the hardest worked out I have done as the sweat just drips off you!

Friendly professional service Fully trained staff Landlord/Insurance work welcome No jobs too small All domestic chores Ironing service available Competitive Rates - Free Quotes Quick & Reliable

Emma is a fantastic teacher who helped with my balance as I have only attended a yoga session once before. It is all in your breathing, Emma tells you everything you need to do & when. She is so gentle & calm I really did just get lost in my thoughts & after a while got used to the heat. At the time of the class I didn’t hurt much, it was not until the following day when I literally had to roll out of bed when I noticed my stomach muscles were very tender, as well as my neck, arms & legs (but bearable). Like they say ‘No pain, no gain’! I will definitely be going back to these classes; I feel in my mind fantastic & actually really good about myself - I really do feel like I could take on whatever life throws at me.
