Yellow Car Review Challenge House MP Diary What’s On

10 23 28 32

Hello and welcome to the February edition of the YourLocalFlyer

January is typically the month for new resolutions and setting goals, have you made yours yet and how many have already fallen off the wagon! I typically do not set a New Year resolution, as I am VERY bad at sticking to it. So this year I will carry on doing what I enjoy doing. One thing I did last year was to move the Your Local Flyer to a new office, We moved into Challenge House in Bletchley and from the moment we did I have not looked back. If you are thinking that a new office in 2017 is the way forward or if you just require a meeting room for the day, I would highly recommend popping down and seeing what is on offer. See page 23 for more information. This year sees the introduction of MK City Expo, a showcase of local experts from every walk of life and industry. For more information about MK City Expo please visit www.mkcityexpo. Let’s talk Valentines Day! What are your plans this year? Have you sorted out that special something for the special someone in your life? Intu Milton Keynes have again given us a few gift ideas for you. Please see page 31. Remember, if you can’t find what your looking for in Your Local Flyer check out the online directory at www.yourlocalflyer. where there is a list of businesses.

Audi A4 2.0TDi 190hp Sport Saloon The Audi A4 is one of the best cars I have driven, for the price, with plenty of gadgets for the techies. Its closest rivals include the ubiquitous BMW 3 Series, the similarly popular Mercedes C-Class and the sharp-driving Jaguar XE.

PERFORMANCE: 5 Stars The Audi A4 comes in a varied engine range. The 2.0TDi 150hp is a great engine with great economy, however if you want a little more poke to be the quickest to 30mph then either the 2.0TDi 190hp or the 3.0TDI 218hp. If you love your petrol motors then the 1.4TFSI 150hp or the 2.0TFSi 187hp are the ones for you. All very economical and lovely to drive, to be honest, Audi don’t produce bad cars…

COMFORT/HANDLING: 4 Stars When ordering your new A4 have the leather interior, don’t get me wrong, it’s very comfortable but I feel the leather seats would finish it off in the SE and Sport models. Heated too as it’s not getting any warmer… One of the things I love about the Audi A4 is how everything is at your fingertips. From the Satnav to the 3 Zone climate control for the people in the back. I also love how you can adjust the ride style, so if you wake up in the morning wanting to race everything on the road, then stick it in Dynamic mode and away you go. It’ll also stiffen up the suspension and steering. Or if your cruising the vast motorway system then stick it in Comfort mode and just breeze over the lumps and bumps in the road.

INTERIOUR/EXTERIOUR: 4 Stars The interior in the Audi A4’s are very refined, As mentioned before, you have everything at your fingertips which is great for comfort but also safety. Audi have thought of almost everything when it comes to the vast cabin space. Even down to little things like extending the drivers and passengers seat to support more of your legs. Audi have produced the A4 since 1995 and I must admit, when I saw The Transporter, I thought it looked amazing, I think it has gone from strength to strength. Very slick and elegant even down to the LED indicators on the S-Line model.


The Audi A4 in general is a great all round, practical vehicle. If you have a family with a cavernous boot or a company car driver who like that little

You won’t go wrong with this car.

Verdict - 10/10 MPG - 38.7-74.3 mpg CO2 - 103 Top Speed - 120mph 0-62 - 7.7 MPH On the road price £26,350

So here we are a month into 2017 and the stress of Christmas and New Year is behind us, so we thought it would be a good time to look at stress, its causes and our reactions to it. A favourite definition of stress here at Double Trouble Towers is that “Stress occurs when someone thinks that the demands on them exceed the personal and social resources that the individual is able to mobilise.” (Richard S. Lazarus). Our reason for this is it places stress and the ability to manage it straight back within our control. So what causes stress, it could be a major life event such as birth, death, marriage, divorce, illness, financial issues or simply a change of any sort that we were not expecting or felt in control of. And what about the impact? Well, from a physical perspective we poison our bodies with increases in adrenalin and cortisol, which if left unchecked lead to physical ailments such as high blood pressure, lowered immunity, increased fat storage, anxiety, and weight gain / loss. The symptoms of stress can actually be split into four categories, emotional e.g. moodiness and irritability, behavioural e.g. unusual sleep patterns such as not having a regular bedtime, body e.g. aches, pains, upset stomachs and mind e.g. inability to concentrate and poor judgement. So if we are in control of all of this as Richard Lazarus suggests because stress is when a person “thinks” that the event or situation is beyond then surely we can manage the stress more effectively.

When we think about the thing that is causing us stress, we have an amazing imagination. We create a whole scenario of how bad “things” could get and what disasters might occur as a result of the particular cause of our stressful thoughts and feelings. What if we could use that imagination to solve the issue instead of create a disaster movie or drama about it? So, what if we could turn that around into taking positive action to achieve what we wanted from the situation? For example, learning new behaviours, managing our thoughts and feelings more effectively, or even holding courageous conversations with the person or people that are involved in our drama. What would happen to the stress then? You see to manage our stress more effectively we need to identify the “personal and/or social resources” we require to overcome whatever issue is at the root of our stress response. Sometimes we need help to do that and the old adage “a problem shared, is a problem halved” springs to mind. So seeking the help of a personal or business coach could enable you to feel and think much more positively. Someone independent that is in your corner and helping you to find the resources you need to achieve the positive outcomes you want from any situation.

If this resonates with you, get in touch with us via email at or by calling us on 01908 299164. Let us help you to take control of stress and live a positive, happy life.

Positive living

How life affects you... We all connect together to form this thing called life. We do the best we can with tools we have available as we work through live experiences we choose to have. Yet this current slot in history is fraught with challenges, fear and tension that affect the way we think and so behave on a daily basis. We are taught to live a good life and to be happy, to be respectful and kind to others and basically how to love; but when it comes down to facing challenges and opinions we don’t agree with, do we have the understanding to pass through them unhurt, unscathed? Outside your window the sky is blue (or not if today it rained), your world continues as it does each passing moment. Any problems that arise are faced and overcome. Your life though hard is not too bad when matched with others like for like. Yet it cannot be denied that wider life is shaky. Much depends on other people doing all they should correctly so things stay smooth. Family, community, economics, pleasure, peace… All elements of a bustling world link and work together, all interplay with your life to affect your status quo at any moment... The way you feel affects your thoughts, your words and then your actions as emotions affect your body, which naturally responds and adds to vibes unseen, whilst simultaneously the same occurs to other people as events play out. All who link in mind or thought or space react to life together to negate or validate whatever’s happening – to make it bigger, better, smaller, worse – to add more to the greater picture, even to current unrest across the globe. All energies produced work somehow somewhere. If you could ignore the news and did not read or use the media, it would be possible to live a fairly happy, non-eventful life cocooned within the boundaries of that creation. It would be possible to plod forward without too much disturbance as long as systems that you rely on perform on cue without disruption. But life’s not actually like that really is it? Instead it’s unpredictable, things happen to or around about us. Each new day brings forth new problems caused by others or circumstance beyond our present jurisdiction or control… Whether we like it or not, admit it or not, worldwide occurrences across the globe do rub off and bring us down which then affects directly how we act and think – but how far should we let them – what exactly can we do? How can you protect your mood, your thoughts, your feelings and emotions from all that’s happening? Apart from living in illusion or on a desert island we are part of life’s own real time story still unwritten and unfolding; we all have parts to play and we are powerful! When you witness any scene, hear a story or something happens physically or through the media – you automatically respond internally / externally in quick succession, depending on the level you are affected. Reactions we understand because we usually do what’s called for, but faster and far more potent is what’s dished out from us internally as we process automatically current data. Experiences liked are shared and talked about and consequently in doing so things get even better. With others of like mind we create a real time vibe, a positive charge that adds more mood, feeling, emotion, ambiance, sensation around the subject matter, much like a ripple effect upon a pond. You’ve probably felt this for yourself when someone spoke kindly of you to another and you accidentally overheard and instantaneously you felt proud


or a little puffed up like a peacock as inside you felt lifted; or the opposite when someone’s lied or said bad things, the negative energy sent caused pain or pulled you down, producing instant negative response as retaliation or self-defence and your mood dropped or went into overdrive. Or how when you access good time memories in lone or group situations, energies revived and shared will lift the mood - or vice versa when subject matter is more serious... When you feel, hear, see or witness something you don’t like – immediately go within and ask your higher self for peace and help. Don’t add to the situation. Imagine you can shut down, pull all defences in. Ask silently for help for you and for all concerned. Ask that the situation can be rendered null and void and be at best corrected, that all can be kept as small as possible so disruptions will be minimal. Watch carefully for reactions from others around you too and silently repeat the process to help them. Your thoughts and reactions go immediately to point of interest. If something happens on the news even though its far away, you can help to make things better with your real time conscious energy, attention and requests. This is not pretend but very real. Just look at the power of manifestation you’ve already exercised to help your own real live unfolding story. How often have you wanted something and it’s then appeared? How often have you had a thought – and then it’s really happened? You may not be able to control the influences of life and others through physical action, but you absolutely do control the way you think and then react – you attract / deflect. You can choose to be bought down – or you can choose to feel safe and happy. That is the point.

MP’s Diary The Golden Years! Just in you case you hadn’t heard Milton Keynes is celebrating its 50th birthday! A yearlong programme of events have been created to celebrate the birth of the “New Town” back in 1967. Developed as an answer to alleviate the chronic housing situation in London, Milton Keynes became a truly ground-breaking initiative which has been able to attract over 260,000 residents and encourage a wealth of recognised major international businesses.

your seats go to Consistently ranked in the top 10 UK marathons, May 1st is the date in the diary for the annual MK Marathon and this year each competitor will receive a very special commemorative medal. MK Gallery consistently offers a diverse range of the arts and City Club is a year-long programme of new art, performances, family activities, events and talks inspired by the original cultural plans for the city. In partnership with artists, arts and cultural organisations across the city, MK Gallery invite you to join their very own unique celebration. Take a look at for the range of events on offer.

Milton Keynes will be keeping each household up to date with a souvenir programme listing a wide variety of activities, in fact there is something that everyone can get involved with and share in this landmark birthday. Here’s just a small sample of what we can look forward to throughout the year. On 9th February, you can see the birth of Milton Keynes through the eyes of local man Lee Scriven, in his film 106 Roundabouts and 3 Curly Wurleys. The archive footage is wonderful viewing and demonstrates how innovative our forefathers truly were. To book
