food&drink AUTUMN FOODS The abundance of fruits from the autumn harvest gives plenty of scope for delicious recipes from vibrant squashes to sweet figs but the classic fruit crumble really takes some beating! In season during September and October: artichoke, aubergines, beetroot, blueberries, broad beans, broccoli, butternut squash, carrots, celery, chestnuts, clementines, courgettes, cranberries, cucumber, duck, elderberries, elderflowers, fennel, figs, French beans, garlic, grapes, kale, leeks, mackerel, mangetout, marrrow, melons, nectarines, onions, parsnips, peaches, pears, peas, peppers, potatoes (main crop), radishes, rabbit, raspberries,r ocket, runner beans, salmon, sardines, scallops, squid, tomatoes, walnuts, watercress, wild mushrooms
Pumpkin Pie Use a ready made sweet crust pastry case. For the filling: 450 g/1lb prepared weight pumpkin flesh, cut into 1in/2.5 cm chunks 2 large eggs plus 1 yolk 3 oz/75g soft dark brown sugar 1 tsp ground cinnamon ½ level teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg ½ tsp ground allspice ½ tsp ground cloves ½ tsp ground ginger 10 fl oz/275 ml double cream
FIGS The fig is considered to be one of the most sensual of fruits with its tempting, luscious flesh that is at its best when it has been left to ripen in the sunshine. The ancient Greeks recognised the health benefits of figs and included them in the diet of the athletes for the first Olympic Games. Some prefer to peel the fig before eating, but in fact the whole fruit is edible. Figs should be eaten at room temperature, as chilling suppresses the flavour. If you get a glut, fig jam is delicious or they can be poached in syrup and served with a little crème fraîche or mascarpone. Try fresh figs quartered, served with thick Greek yoghurt and drizzled with honey - delicious!
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Place the sugar, spices and the cream in a pan, bring to simmering point, whisking. Pour over the eggs and whisk again briefly.
Blackberries can be gathered as soon as they ripen from red berries into dark, plump ones. They can be eaten fresh (they only keep for a short time) or preserved into excellent jelly or jam - although the latter can be a bit 'pippy'. They are also delicious in pies, crumbles, ice cream, fools and summer puddings and are a natural partner to the first cooking apples. Blackberry and apple jam or crumble are popular recipes. Blackberries also make an excellent match for rich or gamey meat such as venison, lamb or pheasant.
Use a shop bought sweet crust pastry case, about 9 inch/23 cm diameter and 1½ inches/4 cm deep. To make the filling, steam the pumpkin then place in a coarse sieve and press lightly to extract any excess water. Lightly whisk the eggs and extra yolk together in a large bowl.
Add the pumpkin pureé, still whisking to combine thoroughly. Pour the filling intothe pastry case and bake for 35-40 minutes, by which time it will puff up round the edges but still feel slightly wobbly in the centre.
Remove from oven and place the tin on a wire cooling rack.
Worcester Pearmains, Bramleys, Discoveries, Early Windsors and Cox’s Orange Pippins should all be making an appearance this month. Some of these are available in supermarkets, but searching out local growers and visiting orchards will give you an even wider choice. It will also mean that the apples you buy will be as fresh as they can be. Use Bramleys in pies and crumbles, or bake them whole with some brown sugar, butter and spices. Slices of caramelised apple also work wonders with meat, especially pork.
Serve chilled (stored loosely covered in foil in the fridge) with some equally chilled créme fraïche, cream or ice cream

health & wellbeing Old-fashioned Cold Remedies After years of fobbing them off as old wives' tales, scientists have discovered that some of the traditional old fashioned cold remedies actually do work. Hot fruit drinks and chicken soup are just two of Granny's oldfashioned remedies that have been proven effective in the fight against colds and flu.
Hot Fruit Drinks Experts at Cardiff University's Common Cold Centre have proved that a steaming mug of hot fruit cordial helps to reduce symptoms of a cold. Sipping the hot fruity drink increases air flow through the nose, making it easier to breathe, and raises body temperature, making you feel immediately better. Lemon or citrus flavours are best and the drink should be drunk piping hot or at room temperature.
Chicken Soup Chicken soup contains a number of ingredients that help to ease infections of the upper respiratory tract; in other words a blocked up nose and a sore throat. A good hot chicken soup made with chicken, 12
onions, sweet potato, parsnips, turnips and salt and pepper, calms inflamed throats, breaks up mucus and creates airway secretions, making it easier to breathe.
Garlic Although her advice to crush it in a glass of milk may have been a little extreme, Grandma was right again with her tip that garlic was good for fighting colds. Research has shown that garlic is an antioxidant and can shorten the life of a cold. Also, Allicin, an ingredient found in garlic, is a decongestant that will help clear your blocked nose and sinuses.
A Hot Toddy This one might have come from Grandpa rather than Grandma, but whoever advised you to slip a couple of drops of whiskey into your hot honey and lemon drink was talking sense. Small amounts of alcohol (we're talking whiskey or brandy here not Smirnoff Ice or cider) can have an antiinflammatory effect on mucous membranes and can help reduce a fever. A dash of alcohol in a hot drink before bed can also aid restful sleep.

Wedding Bells The question has been popped and the planning can start in earnest. Getting married can be one of the most stressful events you will ever have to organise. Not only must you agree on the type of wedding you would both like, but you have to bring it all together within a finite budget, hopefully without upsetting too many members of the family. And the icing on this particular cake is that you will have (hopefully) only one shot at getting it all right. Choosing the type of wedding and venue for your celebrations are two of the most important decisions you will make when it comes to planning your big day. The reception venue is the place where you will spend most of your day and where the wedding breakfast, evening party and maybe even the ceremony will take place, so it's crucial to get it right. Some people just wouldnâ€™t feel married unless they had a church service followed by a traditional reception, whilst others would do anything to avoid the pomp and ceremony of a traditional wedding and instead opt for a low key civil ceremony. And whilst some couple will have a generous budget to cover the cost of the wedding, for others every penny saved is a godsend and the type of wedding they choose is determined more by cost than any other 16
consideration. If you're having a religious wedding, the general rule of thumb is that your venue should be no more than 20 minutes' drive from the church, so that your guests don't have too far to travel between the two. The same rule applies if you're having a civil ceremony in a register office. In this case you must take parking into consideration and ensure you have found out and made your guests aware of where to park. The alternative is to opt for a venue which is licenced to marry couples and this is increasingly becoming a very popular option. Often larger hotels and venues are able to offer a full package including the marriage ceremony, wedding reception, evening reception, and overnight accommodation for guests. In fact the options to couple planning their wedding are mindboggling. Church or civil ceremony, local to the brideâ€™s family home where she grew up or local to where the couple now live, traditional or informal, large celebration or small and intimate, in the UK or or abroad (often called a destination wedding). If you choose to go abroad to marry, would you prefer to be alone or have friends and family accompany you?

As the cost of weddings rocket, many couples are exploring the option of getting married abroad and combining the wedding and honeymoon into one package. Even with a long haul exotic destination such as the Seychelles, the wedding and honeymoon together can often work out less expensive than a traditional wedding at home. And you’re guaranteed good weather and good wedding photographs! Specialist companies are available to help you make your dream wedding a reality regardless of how ‘wacky’ or unusual the theme. The USA is perfect for unusual weddings - it seems to be that anything goes in some parts of the US. Everyone is familiar with the Las Vegas wedding chapels with the minister dressed as Elvis, but did you also know that you can get married in a hot air balloon, at Niagara Falls, on horses with a cowboy theme, in fact if you can imagine it, it can probably be made to happen. Skienthusiasts - how about ski-ing to your reception, in full wedding regalia! Made about animals? How about getting hitched on Safari, surrounded by giraffes and hippos! But the destination weddings aren’t just about the weird and wonderful. Destination weddings offer a great solution to couples who don’t want a religious ceremony, don’t want a large reception and would rather just go away and do it. Or for the impossible romantics, what could be more romantic that being pronounced man and wife on the beach, with the sound of the sea lapping onto the shore and a glorious sunset? But are destination weddings the easy option? They can be, but you have to bear in mind that you may be getting married in a place you have never seen until the day before you wedding - you really do need to go into a destination wedding with your eyes wide open! Many tour operators offer wedding packages that takes most of the planning and stress away from you. You’ll have different options to choose from, but other than getting official documents officially translated to comply with legalities, there may not be that much else to do.
What you do need to consider is is that setting beach, chapel/church/hotel room or somewhere overlooking the beach or a fabulous view. If you are opting for a beach wedding, please be aware of the time of day you will be getting married - you may not want to stand for very long in your finery if the heat is blistering and there is not shade nearby, and your guests may suffer, if you have family and friends with you. Also the sand can get very hot and won’t be suitable for many types of footwear, so warn your guests and think carefully about footwear. Barefoot on the beach sounds idyllic, but if the sand is unbearably hot, you may not be able to stand still! Most venues and wedding planners will have taken this into consideration and scheduled weddings for late afternoon or mid morning but ask. It is also worth asking before you confirm you booking, how private the ceremony is and how many wedding will take place each day this will give some idea of what to expect when you get there. Even with destination weddings, most families and friends expect a celebration of sorts on your return, which can be anything from an informal party at home if you have the space, to a formal reception. As someone who took the plunge and got married abroad in Greece, all I can say about our experience is that it was the perfect wedding for us. Low key, easy to plan, a great setting and a lovely holiday to boot. We opted for Greece so that both sets of parents could be there and we had a lovely party at my parents on our return. For us it was perfect, but I must warn you that our marriage certificate looks like a scrap of A4 paper and totally unrecognisable as a marriage certificate - it’s in Greek. That alone has caused a few raised eyebrows and hiccups when I’ve been asked to confirm my marital status. Hubby is convinced we’re not actually married! And as idyllic a sunshine wedding is, if you’re not used to the sun, do prepare beforehand and be prepared to stay out of the sun before the wedding. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to be lobster red with a nice cold sore brewing - heed my words!
Something Old Something New... There are many customs and superstitions associated with weddings. Many originated or are modifications of customs which began many centuries ago and are known throughout the country and many parts of the world. They are maintained in the belief that they will bring good luck and happiness to the couple at a time when their lives are changing, hopefully for the better. SURNAMES It was thought unlucky for a woman to marry a man whose surname began with the same letter as hers. The sentiment was summarised in the following rhyme: To change the name and not the letter Is to change for the worst and not the better The bride should not practice writing her new name before the wedding. This is thought to bring bad luck by tempting fate. GETTING THE TIMING RIGHT Although most weddings now take place on a Saturday it was considered unlucky in the past. Fridays were also considered unlucky particularly Friday the 13th. The famous old rhyme advises a wedding in the first half of the week: Monday for wealth Tuesday for health Wednesday the best day of all Thursday for losses Friday for crosses Saturday for no luck at all SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW ... Something old, something new Something borrowed, something blue And a silver sixpence in your shoe The rhyme originated in Victorian times although some of customs referred in it are much older. The "something old" represents the couples friends who will hopefully remain close during the marriage. Traditionally this was old garter which given to the bride by a happily married woman in the hope
that her happiness in marriage would be passed on to the new bride. "Something new" symbolises the newlyweds' happy and prosperous future. The "something borrowed" is often lent by the bride's family and is an item much valued by the family. The bride must return the item to ensure good luck. The custom of the bride wearing "something blue" originated in ancient Israel where the bride wore a blue ribbon in her hair to represent fidelity. The placing of a silver sixpence in the bride's shoe was to ensure wealth in the couples married life. Today some brides substitute a penny in their shoe during the ceremony as silver sixpences are less common. THE WEDDING DRESS It is thought unlucky for the bride to make her own wedding dress and it is also unlucky for the groom to see the bride in her wedding dress until she arrives at the ceremony. It is also considered unlucky for the bride to wear her entire outfit before the wedding day. Some brides leave a final stich on the dress undone until it is time to leave for the ceremony when the outfit is completed. WEDDING DRESS COLOUR Most brides today marry in white which symbolises maidenhood. This tradition started by the rich in sixteenth century. The tradition was given a boost by Queen Victoria who chose to marry in white instead of silver which was the traditional colour of Royal brides. Before the white dress brides wore their best dress. The colour was a matter of preference. The following is a traditional rhyme offering advice on dress colour: Married in White, you have chosen right, Married in Blue, your love will always be true, Married in Pearl, you will live in a whirl, Married in Brown, you will live in town, Married in Red, you will wish yourself dead, Married in Yellow, ashamed of your fellow, Married in Green, ashamed to be seen, Married in Pink, your spirit will sink, Married in Grey, you will go far away, Married in Black, you will wish yourself back. THE VEIL Traditionally, brides have been thought to be particularly vulnerable to evil spirits and many of the customs and traditions associated with weddings are to provide protection. The veil was originally worn by Roman brides. It was thought that it would disguise the bride and therefore outwit malevolent spirits. Bridesmaids were dressed in a similar way to the bride for the same reason. The bridesmaids were thought to act as decoys to confuse evil spirits and thus ;protect the bride. THE COUPLE'S FIRST PURCHASE It is said that the first partner who buys a new item after the wedding will be the dominant one in the relationship. Many brides ensure that they make the first purchase by arranging to buy a small item such as a pin from the chief bridesmaid immediately after the ceremony. 19

Making a Hedgehog Hibernation Box Although hedgehogs are often happy to hibernate in a pile of old leaves and twigs, some wildlife enthusiasts have reported success with a constructed wooden box plus an entrance tunnel, buried under old leaves. A wooden box with a small entrance hole (10-12sq cm or 4-5sq in) makes the nest, and a covered tunnel leading
to the entrance helps to prevent foxes and other predators from raiding it. A tunnel can easily be made from old bricks with a wooden plank laid over them. You can then watch hedgehogs come and go from the box in a known location.

parenting... Is Your Child Starting A New School? There are many things you can do to help your child settle in and feel more confident. Starting a new school can be both exciting and very daunting for children of all ages but, as a parent, there are many things you can do to make the transition a little easer. • Talking to your child about the changes they are facing, will help them share any concerns or worries they may have. • Ask if there is anything they are unsure or worried about • Do a trial run of the journey to school if it is different or further than before • Help your child prepare by getting everything (uniform, stationery, money, etc) ready the night before; encourage them to take responsibility and organise themselves • Keep a copy of the timetable where it can be easily seen; this serves as a reminder about days where certain books, or PE kit, are needed • Take an interest in what they are learning and help them (see Help with homework). If the school uses a home-school diary or homework diary make a point of looking at it to see what they are – or should be – doing • Take an interest in new friends they are making • Encourage them to take part in after-school clubs and activities – they can help your child learn new things in a fun way and increase the overall motivation to learn. They will also meeting lots of new friends through their new activities, which will help them settle in easier. • Make a note of key school events on a wall planner or calendar, for example school productions, parents' evenings, sport days.
To find out more about the school you can: • Attend school events. • Attend Parents’ Evenings Introductory events and induction evenings are 22
designed to let you meet teachers and see the environment your child will be learning in. If you cannot attend these sessions or your child is starting a new school mid term, contact the school and ask if you can go along at another time. Always be prepared at school meetings with a set of questions covering all the things you and your child want to know about Keep in touch with the school and let them know any important information about your child Read information provided by the school, which may include: • information leaflets and newsletters • handbooks or prospectuses • information on the school website • information afternoons and evenings • induction events • parents' evenings, to provide feedback and opportunity for discussion. If you do not receive documents or information about these kinds of events, contact the school office and ask.
To help the school you can: • Let the school know how they should contact you, especially in an emergency • Inform them of any details about your child, such as medical conditions and hobbies/interests that you believe are important.
To become involved in a new school and support it, you can find out… • What opportunities there are to assist in the school. Schools are always looking for parent volunteers to help with events, trips etc • If there is a group of parents already supporting the school, which you can become involved with • If there are any practical skills you can offer.
