leader... As Leader of the Opposition, Simon Bridges falls down the public ratings, I’m starting to feel he is somewhat maligned. Putting personal political views aside, I have to admit, Simon has grown on me…a little. After listening to various interviews with him, I’ve warmed to some of his level-headed, thoughtprovoking remarks but while I don’t think he’s doing to bad a job, in light of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s huge popularity, I’m not sure he will survive as National’s leader in the long run. So, I’ve taken another look at Papakura MP, Judith Collins who recently polled one percent ahead of Mr Bridges in the latest popularity stakes. Frankly, on reading over my previous comments I was bit taken aback! I hadn’t realised the many ways I have described Ms Collins. For example I’ve called her feisty, thick-skinned, bolshie, strong, articulate, an iron maiden, straighttalking, aggressive, one who is likely to come out swinging and, calls a spade a spade. It seems I’ve also referred to her as Judith ‘Crusher’ Collins and

said that rather than her trying to be an appealing Pollyanna, she is more of a chariot-driving Boadicea. And, you know what? I think a chariot-driving Boadicea could be a very good thing for the National Party. Yes, a complete contrast to the ardent, likeable and certainly benevolent Ms Ardern but someone who has, perhaps, the strength of character, to take her party forward. However, in saying that, have I detected a more moderate side to Ms Collins of late? Maybe, maybe not, but her loyalty and firm support of Simon Bridges – for the meantime at least – earns my respect. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if all those other qualities (some may say liabilities) will see her ultimately lead the National Party to power or, as hinted of late, will a new contender emerge?


Win! A Baby Show hamper

Scouts may always be prepared but few parents would ever attest that they were fully ready to welcome a newborn! Thankfully, The Baby Show (August 16-18, ASB Showgrounds, Epsom – see for details) is up to the challenge, featuring everything from products and services to professional advice. Because little things can make a huge difference, we have a Baby Show hamper (includes a double pass to the show as well as many other goodies) up for grabs.

Read all about it! hOW TO RAiSE SUCCESSFUL pEOpLE


How would you spell ‘success’? Although success may mean different things to different people, engendering independence, responsibility and self-motivation in children is crucial to them developing into well-adjusted adults, esther wojcicki says. the antithesis to ‘helicopter parenting’, esther’s approach has seen impressive results; two of her daughters are CeOs (one of Youtube) and the third is a leading medical researcher. An insightful guide, this book could well play a role in the formative years of the next generation of humanity’s best and brightest.

every single human being feels anxious at times. However, what happens when children feel as though their worries will overwhelm them? In this book, parenting authors, Michael grose and dr Jodi richardson, seek to assist parents (especially those who have never been directly affected by anxiety disorders) to make better sense of how anxiety can prove crippling and what can be done to help.

It’s not so easy to fake it when you bake it! Perhaps one of the most technically precise styles of cooking, baking requires more than just a little know-how if we’re expecting to ‘rise’ to the occasion. Fortunately, with her latest book, the iconic Allyson gofton is on hand to help. Featuring more than 100 recipes for everything from breads, cakes, pies, tarts, biscuits and brownies, to puddings, pavlovas and more, The Baker’s Companion also serves up advice regarding common baking pitfalls by the spoonful.

From blogger (of My Petite Kitchen fame) to bestselling cookbook author, eleanor Ozich has proven that food remains one of the hottest tabletop subjects. Featuring a wide variety of recipes, her latest book also includes hints and tips for making everything from food wraps, cleaners and air fresheners, to balms, hand scrubs and candles at home.

Behind some of the most modest garden gates there are deluxe (yet petite) spaces to be discovered. while Paul Bangay has become renowned for creating expansive, elegant gardens, in this book he applies is principles to smaller areas. designed specifically with the likes of apartments and townhouse gardens, courtyards and even balconies in mind, Small Garden Design proves that style need not fall victim to lack of space.

Short-sightedness in business can prove catastrophic. As bestselling author, Simon Sinek, reveals, playing the long (well, actually infinite) game is the best way to ensure that a business doesn’t go down as a mere flash in the pan. Applying game theory in exploring how some businesses have managed to persevere, Simon shows how long-term value and healthy, enduring growth are essential to survival in a dog-eatdog world.

Ginny’s a real tonic

She’s made a career of advising people on health and nutrition but one of the toughest things Ginny McArthur has had to do is swallow her own advice. Franklin’s very own fitness guru tells ANGELA KEMP what brought on her life changing experience. There is no end of adjectives to describe Ginny McArthur: inspirational, aspirational and motivational are just a few. I interviewed her the day after her 60th birthday and was struck not only by her enthusiasm and energy but how grounded and approachable she was. Ginny had just won her age category and come second overall in the Counties Manukau Bodybuilding Champs and was looking forward to three more competitions this season, albeit in the higher age group. “I want to show women that you can stand on stage in a bikini and heels at 60 and look amazing. My

mission is to inspire people to live their longest, healthiest life and have a blast doing it,” says Ginny. Since starting her Outlook for Life nutrition and lifestyle coaching business nearly 20 years ago, she has helped hundreds of people, mainly women, turn their lives around. However, prior to that she had, by her own admission, ‘body image issues’ which resulted in her suffering from bulimia in her 20s and early 30s. Back in her native Britain, Ginny lived and breathed horses – riding, eventing, show jumping, breeding and selling horses became her stock in trade. She was friends with

New Zealand Olympic equestrians Blythe Tate and Mark Todd (or Toddy as she affectionately calls him) who lived nearby when Ginny was stable manager at the Wiltshire estate of Jacob Rothschild (the 4th Baron Rothschild to be exact). She met her husband-to-be, and as luck would have it, another Kiwi, jeweller Kenny McArthur. He’d bought a thatched holiday cottage in her village and had an art and design business in London. The two hit it off. The couple moved to New Zealand after the 1987 recession when an opportunity came up for them to start all over, settling on Auckland’s North Shore where Ginny worked as a riding instructor.

“I was selling Kiwi horses to the UK because they were very sought after then. I was bringing them on, competing on them and selling them on. It was a really hard way to make a living and I had quite a few falls. By then Kenny and I had two children. “I had also two operations on my back and I reached a point where I couldn’t ride competitively. I didn’t want to teach if I couldn‘t ride so I had to think about what to do next. “We moved to Pukekohe and after my second back operation I had a really good personal trainer here who helped me with my re-hab. She put me in touch with a nutritionist because I had always been messed up in the head with

“I want to show women that you can stand on stage in a bikini and heels at 60 and look amazing. My mission is to inspire people to live their longest, healthiest life and have a blast doing it,” says Ginny. food even though I rode and was fit.” It was then that Ginny decided to become a personal trainer and studied nutrition at university. “I realised you can work your backside off in the gym but if your food’s not right you’re not going to get anywhere. Because of my personal experience I knew that I could help other women with similar issues.”

improve her time so turned to ultramarathons instead. “However, because of my eating disorders when I was younger, I started to get stress fractures all the time. I had to have a huge knee operation so I couldn’t run anymore and that’s when I decided to give body building another go.”

Ginny took part in her first body building competition 15 years ago but gave it up to concentrate on running and completed eight marathons including New York.

But there was one big difference this time round: Ginny had adopted a vegan diet and needed to ‘beef up’ without the beef.

Ever competitive, she was disappointed at not being able to

“I became vegan, or wholefood plant-based as I prefer to call it, for

health reasons after researching my genetics. There is cancer and heart disease in my family history and I lost my mother when she was 63, her sister died in her forties. I was turning 60 and wanted to learn the best way of protecting myself from dying young.” Bur Ginny wasn’t sure if her new eating regime would support her body building aspirations. “Because of my age I didn’t know if I would I be able to build more muscle or if I would be able to get lean for a competition. It was a very different experience from doing it before when I was living off chicken and egg whites.” In fact, there are a number of vegan

body builders worldwide and Ginny is proof that protein comes in many guises and that you don’t have to fill up with chicken and steak to build muscle. “I feel a million bucks and all my aches and pains have gone. You can get everything you need without eating animal protein.” In her ‘spare’ time Ginny is a volunteer first responder with St John Ambulance in Pukekohe and is also working her way piecemeal along the Te Araroa trail with a group of friends. Despite the knee op she’s run a couple of half marathons and is hoping to do some off-road running too. Watch this space!

Karaka Lifestyle Estate


Construction on new retirement village, Karaka Lifestyle Estate on 10.5 hectares of rural land at Drury is in full swing with the first accommodation units expected to be ready before Christmas this year. We asked Linda Wilson about this new upmarket development which has a significant point of difference from many similar resort style properties.

Tell us about the vision for Karaka Lifestyle Estate? Our vision is to create an environment of relaxed liveability, with spacious homes where residents’ concerns are looked after for them. Financially they’ll be better off with our “Next Generation Village” system. Our aim is to provide them with more time and financial freedom, the latter through providing choices regarding the level of return and fees. In addition, residents receive any capital gain from the sale of their units. If a unit goes up in value then the resident, not the village operator, reaps the benefit. When it comes to freedom of time, the team at Karaka Lifestyle Estate focuses on removing problems of home ownership leaving its residents time to enjoy life, take part in the community groups and activities and use the great facilities on offer. SOUTH understands that like other villages, residents will purchase a ‘licence to occupy’ but Karaka Lifestyle Estate also offers a considerable financial advantage to residents – can you explain that to us? Our residents will have an Occupation Right Agreement or “ORA”. What is different about our system is that our residents are able to choose from three options, the level of fees and whether they

want to pay this when they move in or when they sell. They also receive any capital gain from the sale of their unit. This is one of the biggest differences we have from other villages. Are there any other points of difference? A key point of difference is that the village enjoys a lovely waterside location with a beautiful oldworld Country Club which oozes character and a luxurious feel. We pride ourselves on providing a supportive, warm and welcoming environment for our residents. We offer a supportive but fun environment, and our onsite manager will ensure there are regular events and activities for everyone. Because we are building these homes now, new residents can choose where they want to be living within the village (subject to availability). What type of accommodation will the estate offer – apartments, units, villas or individual rooms? We have a great range of two and three-bedroom apartments, duplex & stand-alone homes from which to choose. We are currently selling homes within Stage 1 where a limited number of each of these types of units are still available. Designs and plans for each of these can be viewed on our website, and in the sales office,

which is where I’m based Monday to Friday and on weekends by appointment. Appointments can be made by calling me directly, through email, our website or on our Karaka Lifestyle Estate Facebook page. These days people live longer and often work well beyond the accepted retirement age of 65 – will that be possible for residents at Karaka Lifestyle Estate? Yes, of course. Our residents can work for as long as they like or they can retire early if they so wish. They are fully independent when living here, so we want them to be able to make their own life choices. At what age will people be able to buy a unit at the estate? Our village is for people 65 years and over, however, we know that in some cases there may be couples where one spouse isn’t yet 65. In this case, we are happy to make an exception. But at any age, visitors are welcome to come in and discuss their ideal plans for future retirement and learn more about what we offer. We want to be able to fit in with residents to ensure retirement life at Karaka Lifestyle Estate is enjoyable every day. What type of communal facilities will initially be offered within the new complex and what is in the pipeline?

Initially, we have our stunning clubhouse and an in-ground swimming pool. Our first residents, who will move in from December 2019, will be able to enjoy refreshments in the clubhouse, outdoor dining overlooking the estuary, pétanque, a TV and games room, mobile hair and beauty services, a library and the new coastal walkway being developed as part of the Auranga site. I will also host Christmas lunch at the clubhouse for residents who have moved in or will be moving in. Further into the development, the village and clubhouse will expand significantly. We plan to have a bowling green, heated indoor pool and spa, a gymnasium, full restaurant with commercial kitchen and bar, billiards room, a wellness centre, a salon for hair, beauty & massage treatments, hobby and activity rooms and a theatre. Will you have a hospital unit? Through the planning stages we identified an opportunity for a hospital and aged care facility within the immediate vicinity of the village. We have a section of land which has been earmarked for the aged care facility which will be owned and managed by a professional company specialising in this sector. We are unsure as to who the provider will be at present, but we’re in the process of having discussions about this to ensure there will be options available for


residents i.e. rest home and a private hospital with government funded assistance if our residents qualify. In terms of when this will be available, we think approximately 2-4 years, but residents and potential residents will be kept well informed as the village progresses. Will the estate offer a programme of activities and if so what do you envisage these will include? Initially, many internal activities will be determined by residents as they get to know each other and what appeals to them. It may be card games, craft days, walking groups, aquarobics or yoga. But as the village grows, so will the demand and this will allow us to determine which activities are most popular and which days to run them. What about the social life outside of the village – will you organise outings such as day trips or to public concerts? Yes, absolutely! we are lucky enough that Franklin district has several locations for a range of activities and many events to offer. Living locally, makes it a lot easier for me to be able to plan events, activities and outings which will be enjoyable for our residents, and will support local businesses. Of course, events will vary according to demand, so at first outings will most likely consist of the lunches at local restaurants, interaction with local clubs such as golf, food and wine, bridge, theatre clubs, Franklin Club & Franklin rSA. But, once our residency numbers increase, then

we will look to provide trips to malls, botanical gardens, concerts and shows etc. I’d also like to see local schools and entertainers come to the village to entertain our residents from time to time; that’s enjoyable for everyone involved. Will residents also be able to live relatively independent lives with the liberty to come and go as they please? Our residents have the right to absolutely live independently in their homes. the only thing we ask, is if a resident is going away for a period of time, that the manager is notified to ensure we can monitor their home during that time. When do you expect Karaka Lifestyle Estate to be fully completed? It’s not always easy to give an exact answer when dealing with such a project but as a guide, we aim to have Stage 1 complete by the end of 2020, Stage 2 around 2022 and Stage 3, in 2025. At completion, we will have 310 homes in our village and a number of additional facilities. For me personally, I’m excited to be here to see everything from the start and to share this journey with residents. Karaka Lifestyle estate is a village which will ensure residents enjoy a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle with beautiful surroundings in a place they can feel safe and cared for every day.

Of course, seeing small children lift up their hats to reveal their identity to family members in the crowd was amusing. I don’t speak Spanish, but I’m pretty sure they were saying something like: “Hey, Gran, it’s me!”

Holy week in Spain In Madrid for a food expo, ROBYN YOUSEF and her husband intended to spend a week visiting business contacts but every appointment they tried to make was met with a firm, “No, we’re on holiday for Easter.” Instead they booked a rental car and drove 600 kilometres south to La Linea where Robyn reports, “we embraced the festive spirit.” Read on…

Spectacular floats, costumes, pageantry, brass bands and masses of incense are all magnificent during Spain’s Holy easter week (Semana Santa) but the parades are unique events. even the most cynical tourist can’t help but get caught up in the amazing atmosphere surrounding these processions which attract huge crowds. we soon discovered that easter week is the most important religious celebration in Spain with most towns having their own celebrations and almost every resident being involved in some way. we arrived in La Linea on a beautiful autumn evening just as one of the Holy week parades was finishing and the town was in full fiesta mode. I was immediately taken by the relaxed vibe and friendly atmosphere. La Línea de la Concepción (its full name) in the province of Cádiz in Andalucia has a population of about 65,000. As in most traditional Spanish towns, the Catholic Church

dominates the town square, which is the hub of local life and packed with people and activities during this week. Locals of all generations were drinking at tables and relaxing with the entire extended family or “familia.”

Carrying the magnificent “pasos” or floats in the processions are members of associations known as ‘cofradias’ or ‘brotherhoods’.these are a strong Spanish tradition dating back to the Middle Ages.

On Palm Sunday we joined the crowd which crammed into the square and streets, lining the procession route. the Andalusia area is particularly known for ornate and lively Semana Santa parades with extra colour provided by the region’s flamenco heritage. Other northern areas claim more ‘sombre’ affairs. Here in Linea we first heard the approaching procession via music from the town’s large band then we spotted the giant cross which is always carried at the front of the parade. we were soon caught up in the festive spirit although I must confess there was something slightly eerie about the costumers worn by participants. the traditional ‘capirote’ includes long belted robes and a tall conical hat which covers the face – locals

were quick to point out there were no connections to the USA’s Ku Klux Klan! According to history, this style of dress was worn by people during penance. As a sign of atoning for their sins, they would walk through the town with their faces covered so no one would recognise then as sinners hence the parades became known as ‘penance processions.’ Of course, seeing small children lift up their hats to reveal their identity to family members in the

Membership is usually open to any Catholic person and family tradition is an important element to becoming a member. women and children join the parade too with many wearing black and the classical mantilla (or lace veil). Occasionally, above the noise of the band, I could hear ‘saetas’ or bursts of flamenco music from locals leaning out of balconies overlooking the route. the floats with huge sculptures of Jesus Christ and the virgin Mary (some by famous Spanish artists) were festooned with flowers and huge silver candelabras. Floats can weigh more than 1000 kilograms and many brotherhoods

Portugal’s luxurious lodgings

Any sort of port will do in a storm. But, when soaking in the Iberian sun, luxury is the watchword, as these photos (kindly provided by Coveted magazine) of some of the finest Portuguese hotels reveal.

The Yeatman have owned and preserved their pasos for hundreds of years. So, of course, those carrying these works of art needed regular breaks to gather their strength. It took about 40-50 men, called Nazarenos, to carry one float and some – for extra penance – walked barefoot and shackled. On the other hand, I was amused to see some mega trendy sportswear on their feet – they certainly looked slightly incongruous being just visible below the bottom of the float. while easter is a time for the Spanish to take to the streets and watch these elaborate Passion enactments, the holiday mood also sees plenty of drinking and joyful eating among family and friends. For readers planning an autumn trip to Spain (particularly to the ‘not so sombre’ the south), check out the timing of the Holy week and try to include these vibrant, memorable parades in your itinerary – visitors don’t have to be religious to find the experience unforgettable.

Between a rock and a soft place It’s fair to say that Franklin community arts volunteer Caroline Burton is an artist of hidden depths, creating abstract artworks both mysterious and tactile. ANGELA KEMP discovers what lies beneath.

Not many artists would claim to be good at maths let alone hold a degree in engineering but that’s exactly what makes fibre artist, Caroline Burton’s work unique. Using felted wool and silk fibres often with three-dimensional sculptural elements, her work is inspired by natural forms.

“Sometimes when I get into the studio, I work quite closely from the sketches I’ve done and other times I just start laying out the fibre.

Caroline originally trained and worked as an engineer. Evidence of this previous training can be seen in some of her chosen subject matter: an obsession with geological forms and processes.

Caroline buys her skeins of New Zealand merino wool and silk braids from boutique suppliers who dye the fibre to her specification.

“Each piece has a base of four layers of merino wool and I build up the colours on that base according to the finished effect I am seeking.”

“It’s really fragile at first as you are working with tiny wisps of fibre. If someone opens a door when you’re working it can literally ruin everything.

“I love the idea that there is a threedimensional landscape beneath our feet that we can’t see. Curiosity is a vital part of creativity,” she says. “I haven’t always been in the arts but I’ve always been creative. I used to sew for myself, friends and family. “I was working for a mineral processor and needed an artistic outlet because I found if I didn’t do anything creative for a while I began to feel a build up of tension.” Caroline was considering starting a business making wedding dresses when the first of her three children arrived and she decided the need to both up-skill and deal with petulant brides-to-be wasn’t for her. Her now family of five moved to Ararimu from the Bay of Plenty five years ago prompting an artistic renaissance in Caroline; she began making art in earnest. “I love living in this area. Looking out of my studio, all I can see is fields. I got into felting about 12 years ago after my friend taught me to knit. Online you can get patterns

to knit these big, saggy handbags which can be put in the washing machine. They then shrink down into these lovely little structured forms. “Next I discovered wet felting, which is the medium I now work with. To start with, it was a craft form – I was making beautiful, functional things.” The turning point came when Caroline entered some wearable art and a wall hanging into a creative fibre festival in Pukekohe. “I made a wall hanging inspired by rock formations over at Sunset Beach, a skirt and top inspired by layers between the land and the sea and a red evening dress which won the overall prize.

“I’d moved from making functional items, which was more about the process, to thinking about the deeper meaning behind the ideas of what I was making. That was when I moved into making art rather than crafting, I guess.” These days she says she enjoys working on a series of pieces and developing an idea which usually starts from sketches. “A lot of my work is inspired by geology; I love to research and look at different materials. My faith is important so I also spend some time meditating on an idea and thinking about what I will do. There is an alchemy to the process of transforming wisps of fibre into something with form, structure and strength,” she explains.

“When you felt, the fibres all wiggle together so you achieve that lovely blending of colours. With painting you blend colours as you go but with felting there’s a bit of trial and error to learn how the colours are going to work together. Once the piece is felted, that’s it – I either have an artwork or it’s cut up.” Having a passion for supporting the arts in our community, Caroline has exhibited at the Franklin Centre, is a part of the Franklin Arts Festival committee (where she has won awards in the textile sections for the past two years) and is on the Franklin Arts Trail team. She’s not planning local exhibitions this year but you can see her work in the Franklin Centre shop where she has felted bowls and miniature masterpiece jewellery on sale. Her original artworks and her fibre art prints are sold in galleries around New Zealand and online. | july 2019 |

Casey Cep: Furious Hours – Murder, Fraud and the Last trial of Harper Lee rrP $38 | william Heinemann / Penguin random House UK

By Jon Rawlinson

while we all know about the risk of cats being hit on the road or bitten by another cat or a dog, there are some dangers to cats that await in the relative safety of the home. dr NIKKI FrOSt, senior vet at Franklin vets Pukekohe explains.

In her book Furious Hours – Murder, Fraud and the Last Trial of Harper Lee, Casey Cep delivers a ‘true crime’ story of a ‘voodoo reverend’ who collected a fortune in insurance, following ‘misfortunes’ of friends and family, escaping the long arm of the law but not the hand of justice. Also renowned for assisting in the research of truman Capote’s ‘true crime’ masterpiece, In Cold Blood), Ms Lee prepared extensive notes about the case from which Ms Cep draws. If that’s where Furious Hours finished, it would still be well worth reading. But (I would say) thanks to the indefatigable self-assurance of youth, Ms Cep carries on to give readers so much more – part two offers a mini biography of the reverend’s lawyer, and, in part three, readers are treated to a biography of Ms Lee herself. with Furious Hours, Ms Cep demonstrates adept (almost athletic) abilities with words and a maturity in her writing which is

due to their hunting nature, grooming behaviour and their lack of some of the metabolic pathways which humans and dogs possess, the dangers for cats can be quite different from dogs. Compared to dogs, cats much less frequently present to vets with a foreign body stuck in their gastrointestinal tract but when they do, it more frequently tends to be a linear foreign body such as string.

“Through her efforts, Ms Cep acts like an enthusiastic investigator re-examining a cold case. However, after many furious hours, she is still unable to conclusively determine why the mockingbird of Alabama simply stopped singing.” often found only in the lines (and between them) of grizzled, gnarled veterans. As with Mockingbird, readers of Furious Hours will find a book written by a young woman but driven by an old soul. So, why did Harper Lee never publish a work so many waited so long to read? through her efforts, Ms Cep acts like an enthusiastic investigator re-examining a cold case. However, after many furious hours, she is still unable to conclusively determine why the mockingbird of Alabama simply stopped singing. And yet, instead of detracting from the work of either author, it adds to it – the only thing better than a mystery solved is one that will never die.

this may be due to us encouraging cats to play with string toys which often prompts them to explore string-like objects. the backward facing papillae on their tongues can cause the string to stick to these and then, subsequently, be swallowed. Sometimes the string can be sewing thread with the needle still attached which makes for interesting x-rays! Some cats also seem quite partial to rubber bands and hair ties with cases of large numbers of these

objects being removed from cats’ stomachs. Lilies are a potentially toxic plant for cats, causing them to go into kidney failure. All parts of the plant are toxic including the water that cut flowers sit in. Cats rubbing against the flowers may then groom the pollen off their coats. Paracetamol is a great pain killer for humans but is highly toxic to cats as they lack the enzymes to metabolise it, and therefore it becomes a harmful substance which alters the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells, meaning the can no longer carry oxygen around the body. It takes only a small amount [of paracetamol] for this to occur so should never be given to a cat. Bleach and ‘wet and Forget’ are common causes of mouth ulceration in cats. Cats walk on these substances before they have dried and then lick it off their paws causing caustic burns to their mouths. So, do take care.

I know how Nelle must have felt, to some extent – some stories are just too tough to tell, leastways to tell them right. After her Pulitzer prize-winning debut novel, (To Kill a Mockingbird) met with widespread acclaim, Nelle (Harper) Lee became lost for words. However, almost 60 years later, another writer has found them. In 2015, a little less than a year before her death, Ms Lee did publish a second novel, however Go Set a Watchman (effectively a sequel to Mockingbird) was not the book she had promised to deliver for decades. Now, Casey Cep picks up where Ms Lee left off.

Keeping your cat safe


Stop sinking start flying Ten absolutely is the new 30 and having a plan to make that your reality will jumpstart you on the road to financial success.

Stressed about your finances? You’re not alone – 83 per cent of us are. Working hard but making no progress, sliding backwards, having a big mortgage or not being prepared for retirement – all of it can keep you awake at night. But what if you could achieve financial freedom in just 10 years?

Over the past 12 years EnableMe has helped thousands of Kiwis get rid of their mortgages and set them up for bright financial future. Come and see Dianne Barlow, strategic coach for an initial consultation as the start of your journey on how to become mortgage-free faster.

When you celebrate a birthday that has a zero at the end of it, people reassure you ‘it’s the new 30!’. 40, 50, 60 – they’re all the new 30. We believe when it comes to your mortgage that in many circumstances 10 is the new 30! Too often borrowers default to the standard duration of 30 years, and trundle along never making much more progress than that. Think about this – over 30 years you will pay back to the bank almost three times what you borrowed. So, if you borrow $400,000, you’ll pay back close to $1.1 million (using long term average rates). The interest rate discount you negotiate starts to pale into insignificance in the context of such large numbers! Not only that, but you pay the bank back first.

Liz Brown Douglas, Dianne Barlow & Veehba Jeram-Patel. Hannah McQueen, founder of EnableMe says, “In my first mortgage I worked out it would be 23 years before I started paying more principal than interest each month – but I wanted something different”.

income, you should be able to pay your mortgage off in eight years. If that debt is five times your household income, you should aim for 11-12 years. If that ratio is more like one to eight or nine, you’ve overstretched and it’s time to sell.

One of the problems is we don’t have a good gauge for what we should be aiming for – what’s a reasonable time frame to pay off a mortgage?

In my experience, there’s always more fat in people’s budgets than they realise.

You might scoff and think being 10 years away from being mortgagefree is impossible, but first consider the time frames we aim for with our clients. If you have debt which is four times your household

On average, people fritter 15% of their income on things that don’t make them happier or, worse, they can’t account for where it went! You’d also be surprised at the savings you can make from more efficient mortgage set ups, tax structures and insurances.

This consultation will involve careful consideration of your income, expenses, money personality, non-negotiable expenses (very important), holiday spending habits and debts. What do you owe, what do you own? Where can we trim the fat? How is the ‘fritter factor’ holding you back? No matter what financial shape you are in, we can help you reach your goals faster via astute guidance and a proven process tailored to your circumstances.

Make it click! If a picture says a thousand words, these top shots speak volumes! Judges of the recent Nikon Auckland Photo Day competition (part of the Auckland Festival of Photography) confirmed that entries were of a very high standard. “We chose Sleeping With My Mate as the winning photograph as the person’s situation is raw and compelling. The photographer [Neil Ihaia] documents a powerful, moving moment of love and care, with a sense of citizen journalism. The merit of this image lies in the subject matter that you can’t ignore; it is a portrait of Auckland’s most vulnerable part of society.” Steve Pettigrew’s Youth, yet to be entertained and Manon Fleurentin’s Inside Out claimed second and third respectively. Others receiving accolades included Takanini’s Alvin Sarmiento whose photo TheVendor was Highly Commended.

Design your own toilet! too high, too low, weak flush, wrong seat shape – who hasn’t experienced a problem toilet; a style that just doesn’t suit their style? Now, a new generation of ultra sleek, exceptionally hygienic toilet can be tailored to a consumer’s personal preference and bathroom design. the Kohler collection of grande wall-faced toilets all feature the same sleek, sophisticated bowl design with straight-skirted sides but the rest of the components are down to individual preference – the type of flush system, seat,

flush plate and even height of the appliance. Kohler’s introduction of a pneumatic in-wall tank (in addition to the conventional mechanical in-wall option) has big implications for the aesthetics of a bathroom. Small air pumps (connected to the flush plate) are used to flush the cistern, which means the flush plate can be placed anywhere within a three metre radius of the toilet. this creates unlimited aesthetic choices as the plate can be placed in alignment with existing cabinetry/architectural features or other fixtures.

there are three choices when it comes to seats – all of which are quiet close and vertical quick release. the more conventional wrap-over seat is a classic, timeless design while the slim version is self-explanatory. the elite seat includes an Led night light plus discreet fragrance dispenser. Flush plates, in polished chrome, offer a wide choice – from the more geometric to the softer, more organic designs. there are six designs in all. the innovative rimless pan design is a game changer in terms of hygiene and easy, effortless day-

to-day care while the ultra-efficient flush system, coupled with a pan interior, which is both smooth and rim-free, ensures all areas are easily accessible for thorough cleaning.

confident about their rights when dealing with organisations online... the figures are more disturbing for those who do have an understanding of security and privacy concerns, with 68 percent saying they find it hard to protect themselves online because they do not have the necessary tools to do so.” emphasising the need for businesses to better protect personal information, Mr weaver asserted that confidence is key as the global e-commerce sector continues to grow. “Our research showed a very large gap between what people want to see and what they are offered now. this highlights some significant paradigm shifts that we must address with some urgency. Personal data must be the property of every individual.”

rISINg rOAd tOLL wArNINg S FOr SCHOOL HOLIdAY drIver Over New Zealand’s last holiday period, the three-day Queen’s Birthday weekend in June, six people died on our roads, several more were critically injured. the figures, followed by even more recent road deaths, serve as a warning just as school holidays loom again. For many families the school break will see them loading up the car for a winter escape – perhaps to the snow, perhaps to the country, or even into the ‘big smoke! But it’s no time for complacency on our roads which, at this time of the year, can be wet and slippery. the Associate Minister of transport, Julie Anne genter has said that on average one person dies on New Zealand roads every day and someone else is injured every hour of every day.

while she acknowledges everyone makes mistakes, she has urged Kiwis to stop mistakes turning into tragedies. Yet this month has seen several more road deaths and others critically injured. So, if travelling in the upcoming couple of weeks, have your vehicle checked ahead of your journey and when on the road remember to avoid risky overtaking, racing to beat a red light and turning to admire the scenery – inattention can turn to a tragedy in seconds. It’s easy to think we know it all but here are a few tips to help keep you and your family safe if driving these school holidays: • give yourself more following distance – as least 2-seconds in good conditions

• drive at a safe speed for the conditions – that might mean doing a moderate 80 kph instead of 100 kph • take regular breaks and don’t drive tired –it’s important to stay fresh and awake. • Be prepared for sun-strike in the morning and late afternoon. • Be prepared for frosty or snowy conditions if heading for the ski fields. • resist using your phone, don’t answer a call or glance at a text. turn off while on the road. • Pull over to the left if a queue is building behind you – always let others pass if practicable – don’t try to be the road police, just concentrate on your own driving.

hiSTORiC nEW ZEALAnD RACinG CARS From drawing board to chequered flag and beyond, the history of some of the greatest Kiwi contraptions to ever take to the track is revealed in this new book. Packed full of photographs, Historic New Zealand Racing Cars showcases 18 vehicles from the 1940s-80s, while also taking readers on a ride back in time to the golden age of New Zealand motor racing.

The Expectations of Renovating Post

‘The Block’ Smith & Sons Pukekohe owners, Lane and Melissa van den Brink know how important it is for a home to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Their advice is designed to guide homeowners smoothly through the renovation process. With The Block NZ starting back on TV this month it brought back memories of a question we were asked from a client: “Why can’t you complete a bathroom renovation in a week like they do on The Block?” Our honest answer was, “it doesn’t actually happen in a week”. Don’t get us wrong, we are avid viewers of the show – we love it for all its drama and ideas and because it shows there are endless possibilities when renovating. But although it’s a reality show it doesn’t show the ‘real’ reality of renovating. Here are some things that you don’t see: Behind the scenes work – the amount of work that goes into planning a project, even a small project. Making sure the sub trades are booked to fit the schedule and making sure the fittings and fixtures turn up on time – many such decisions are made prior to starting a project. We see it all in a neatly edited one-hour programme. The real cost – at the end of each week The Block shows you what each room “cost”. What this

doesn’t take into consideration is how much is sponsored. You see what the contestants actually paid and this is generally labour and the finishing touches. Some rooms aren’t even finished! And certainly not to a standard that we would approve. What’s more, with contestants having to paint at all hours of the day and night (after the tradies have gone) in order to finish the rooms, you can understand how there is a little painting outside the lines. So, enjoy watching The Block but, just remember, it’s great for entertainment and ideas but it doesn’t necessarily reflect the true nature of renovation. If you’d like to know more about the real renovation process come in and talk to the team at Smith & Sons Franklin.


Helping family purchase property – is it a gift or a loan? Sarah hagenson is Franklin Law’s specialist family lawyer with particular expertise in relationship property. She enjoys assisting clients on family law matters also including domestic violence issues and parenting disputes in addition to relationship property matters. Due to increasing house prices and more stringent lending criteria, we have seen an increase in the number of parents advancing funds to their children to assist in the purchase of a home.

separates and the advance was applied to the family home or other relationship property, the gift is also relationship property and divided between the separating couple.

These arrangements are made with the best of intentions, however we are finding a number of situations where the party providing the advance has not obtained legal advice and there is no signed documentation recording the nature of the advance.

The presumption of a gift can be challenged with evidence showing that, at the time of the advance, there was no intention of the advance being a gift but it was a loan that needs to be repaid. A loan agreement or deed of gift will easily show the intention of the parties, otherwise a long and costly court process may be required.

With no written agreement to refer to, the passage of time can cause disagreements, as the parties’ understanding of the advance may differ. A common dispute occurs when a couple separate but there are differing opinions as to whether the advance from one party’s family was a gift (which is subject to division between the couple), or a loan and it is therefore is to be repaid (and is not divided between the couple). The general presumption in law is that an advance from a parent to a child is a gift and not a loan. This means that when a couple, who have lived together for at least three years (generally),

Additionally, in some unique circumstances where a loan is made and the repayment of the loan is vague or even not mentioned, the lender may find that obtaining repayment of the loan becomes difficult even with court assistance.
