HELEN JOHNSTON, Editor
I mean the weather not the Prime
Minister, obviously! Although Mr
Cameron was certainly very warm
when he greeted the winners of the
Tesco Mum of the Year Awards at
Downing Street. Even when they
quizzed him on why the government was not meeting their various
demands. Turn to page 40 to read what these feisty women had
to say. And how he answered. But back to the weather and the
arrival of summer (well, almost). What better way to welcome our
favourite season than with a great big family get-together centred
on a wonderful meal. We have created the perfect menu for a
weekend spectacular, complete with great BBQ recipes, ideas
for cooking with the kids, crafts and games for all your guests.
Plus youll fnd lots more to celebrate at this time of year, from
the freshest home-grown asparagus (p102) to the hottest new
fashion trends (p63) and the simplest beauty secrets to looking
radiant all summer (p80). And theres even a chance to win
a luxury holiday for two to Barbados (p133).
Were nice like that.
Enjoy.

Your thoughts on this years Mum of the Year
Awards, plus some brilliant money-saving tips
Star email Balancing act
I was particularly interested in your Mum of the Year Awards and this years
ambassador, Denise Van Outen. As a working mum, I often feel guilty about
enjoying my job as well as being a mum to my two boys. Reading about Denise
made me stop, look at my boys playing and smile. I love my work-life balance.
Estelle ODonoghue, via email

Hooray for mums!
As a proud parent of one of the Mum
of the Year winners, I want to thank
you for recognising my daughter
and the other women. The stories of
courage were so inspiring. The event
was wonderful and Id encourage
everyone to nominate for next year.
Martyn OReilly, West Yorkshire
Facing diabetes
Your article on diabetes (March/April)
was helpful and encouraging. My
husband died of diabetes-related
complications. Its easy to go into denial
if you are diagnosed. Facing it, and
adjusting your lifestyle, will add quality
to your life and hopefully extend it.

Make the most of early summer days
spending time over food with family and
friends good fun and good for us all
The great
family get
together
T
Theres only one thing we love more
than the weekend and thats sharing
it with our family and friends. Getting
together for a good meal, prepared with
love, feels like a celebration even if the
only thing were raising a glass to is the
absence of rain. Gathering around a
table or the barbecue for great food is
one of lifes simplest pleasures and
weve found some recipes that are
bound to please even the fussiest of
eaters. So invite grandparents, cousins,
your extended family and your
next-door neighbours its a great
chance for younger and older
generations to get out in the fresh air.
Then, for after-lunch entertainment,
weve got fun crafts and family games
that wont just keep the kids amused
the adults can get involved, too.

Whole lime and chilli fish Score
8 prepared and gutted whole sea bass (from
the fish counter) down to the bone several times
with a sharp knife. Fill the slits with the slices from
3 limes and a pack of fresh coriander. Rub the
outside of each fish with a spoonful of Red Thai
Curry Paste. Drizzle 3 tbsp sesame oil over both
sides of all the fish. Cook on the hot barbecue
rack (or under a hot grill) for 5-6 minutes on each
side, or until opaque and the flesh flakes easily
with a fork. Serve the fish on a platter topped with
plenty of fresh coriander and basil sprigs, finely
shredded salad onions and strips of deseeded red
chilli, with soy sauce and extra lime wedges on
the side. Serves 8.

sprays of olive oil in a small
frying pan over a low heat.

Cost per serving 72p
2 x 500g packs beef
mince (normal or lean)
8 salad onions, trimmed
and finely chopped
3 tbsp jerk seasoning
olive oil spray, for cooking
mixed salad, to serve
1 Place 24 wooden
bamboo skewers into a
bowl of cold water and
leave to soak for at least
30 minutes, or overnight
if possible this will stop
the wood from burning on
the barbecue.
2 Place the beef, salad
onions, jerk seasoning
and a pinch of salt into
a large bowl. Using your
hands, mix the ingredients
together until really well
combined.
3 Shape a fairly large
tablespoonful of mixture
around the end of one of
the prepared sticks to
make an oval shape about
4-6cm long dipping your
hands in cold water first
will make shaping the
meat easier. Set aside
and continue with the
remaining mixture to
make 24 beef skewers.
4 Spray the meat with olive
oil to give it a light coating,
then cook on the barbecue
for 12 minutes, turning
occasionally, until well
browned and cooked all
the way through. Serve with
the mixed salad.
TIP To cook without a
barbecue, preheat a griddle
pan or your grill to a medium
heat. Cook the skewers for
3-4 minutes on each side.
Cover the wooden sticks
with foil if they start to burn.

3 With slightly damp hands,
shape a tablespoon of the
mixture into a mini burger.
Repeat with the rest of the
mixture to make 24 falafels.
Put onto a plate, cover and
chill for at least 20 minutes
or for up to 24 hours.
4 When chilled and ready
to cook, place a piece of
foil (about 30 x 40cm) on
to a medium-temperature
part of the barbecue rack
and spray with a generous
amount of olive oil. Leave
the foil to warm up for a
couple of minutes.
5 Cook the falafel in a
single layer for about 3-4
minutes on each side, until
golden. Meanwhile, swirl
the harissa into the yogurt.
Warm the pittas or tortillas
on the barbecue for a
minute on each side, then
fill with the watercress,
falafel, remaining feta and
harissa yogurt to serve.
TIP To cook without a
barbecue, warm 2 tbsp
olive oil in a frying pan
over a medium heat and
cook the falafel in batches
for 2-3 minutes on each
side, or until golden.
Warm the pittas or tortillas
according to the
instructions on the pack.

empty glass jars; matt
emulsion or acrylic paint;
stick-on flower decorations;
paintbrush; newspaper
1 Remove the labels and
glue residue from the jars,
then wash and dry them.
2 Stir the paint and pour
a generous amount into
the jars. Put on the lids
of the jars and swirl
the paint around until the
interiors are evenly coated.

Body language
Divide players into two
teams. Each team then
takes it in turn to use their
bodies to spell out words
for the other team to guess.
Start with simple words
such as dog, then move
on to longer words. If you
have only a few players, get
one person at a time to use
their body to spell out the
letters one after another
to make a word. The team
that guesses the most
words wins the game.
Snapped
All you need for this game
is a camera with a timer.
Sit in a circle with the other
players. Set the camera
timer at the longest setting
available, point the camera
at yourself, then pass it to
the person on your left.
The other players do the
same until the camera
takes a picture.
Whoever gets
snapped
must share
it with the
group, then
perform a
forfeit before
play resumes.
The person who avoids
having their photograph
taken wins.
Follow the voice
Get the whole family to
make a soft obstacle
course with pillows, chairs,
blankets and so on. Then
blindfold one person and
choose another to be
The Voice. The Voice has
to guide the blindfolded
person through the course,
but can use only the words
left, right, straight and
stop. Meanwhile everyone
else yells conflicting advice
to lead them off the course.

You will need:
cupcake and petit-four
cases in assorted colours;
flexible drinking straws;
scissors; craft knife
1 To make the base of
each flower, fold a green
petit-four case in half,
then in half again,
and then in half again.
2 Cut the curved end
into a sharp point with
scissors. Unfold and
flatten out into a circle.
Cut a hole in the centre.
Repeat steps 1 and 2, as
the base has two layers.
3 For the centre, fold a
petit-four case (not green)
as before, and cut the
curved end into an arc
for a softer petal shape.
Unfold and make a hole
in the centre of the case.
4 To make the outer petals,
repeat the previous step but
use a larger cupcake case.
5 To assemble, thread two
green petit-four cases onto
a drinking straw to make
the leaves, followed by the
larger cupcake case as
the petals, and then the
centre made from another
coloured petit-four case.

How |mportant |s |t to
honour mums ||ke th|s?
Hugely. Everyone loves their
mum, but we dont always tell
them that enough. Were at an
age now where our friends and
sisters are starting to become
mothers and were realising
what a full-on job it is. They
deserve so much credit. And
were all true mummys boys,
so its lovely to be here
celebrating motherhood.
What does the word
'mum' mean to you?
Patience and love. Mums dont
mind those times when youve
pestered her growing up, and
she still loves you. Thats why,
even as grown men, we never
stop needing our mums.

To show his
support for
Tesco Mum of
the Year 2013,
the Prime Minister
invited the winners
to Number 10 so
he could hear their
concerns, and also
answer questions
from our readers.
The talk ranged
from heated to
light-hearted
read on to
find out what
the PM really
wanted to
do when
he grew up!
And more...

When was the
last time you
embarrassed your
kids and how?
DC: Oh thats easy! It was when I
gave my daughter Nancy a karaoke
machine one that links to the internet. So
I was singing a Beatles song and realising
it was going very, very badly. I discovered
then what karaoke has given to the
world is to teach people who think
they can sing really well,
that they cant.
What
did you
want to be
when you were at school?
DC: My daughter asked me
that only this weekend. Ive
always loved the countryside,
and I once thought I wanted
to be a lorry driver. I definitely
didnt have a burning
ambition to be
Prime Minister.
If you
were no
longer the Prime
Minister, what would you do?
DC: Oh gosh, have a holiday! What
would I do? Well, I helped my neighbour
with his lambing this weekend and I must say
that gave me more pleasure than anything Ive
done for a long time. He lost one of his ewes and
so we were bottle-feeding some lambs. Then a
sheep got stuck in a swamp. Shed gone in to
rescue her lambs. We all jumped in up to our
waists and helped get the ewe out and shes
been named Swampy. Im not saying
Im going to be a farmer, but I do
love the countryside.
What
legacy
would you like to
leave behind for your children?
DC: I thinka country that is fairer,
thats kinder, where people give more. I would
hope that...we can build a bigger society, where
people feel they can play a larger part. Its not just
what you get out, its what you put back in. I see in all
sorts of ways the Olympics were a classic example
that even in difficult times, this is an amazing country
where people are incredibly generous, compassionate,
tolerant and decent. We just need more of that
because [it represents] the sort of society we should
be trying to build. And its what all of you [the
Mum of the Year 2013 winners] in your
different ways have been doing.

Q
How will
you encourage
more women into
business and help create
more role models for girls?
DC: I think its all about schools.
I still remember the people
who came and gave talks to us,
and I dont think politicians or
business people do it enough.
We may think what we do is
unremarkable, but to a kid at
school everything is remarkable.
I remember listening to people in
business or whod fought in the war
and just hearing their storiesso all
your lessons are going on and then
suddenly your eyes are lifted up
to something else.

question
the PM
DC: I had a history teacher called Michael
Kidston who was so passionate about the
subject that he imbued a love of it in all the people
he taught. I remember him reading us the end of
a Gladstone biography when he read about how
Gladstone died he shut the book, I looked up and he had
tears pouring down his cheeks. I thought anyone who
can be that passionate about someone who died 100
years ago He made it exciting and interesting and I
can still remember what his lessons were like. He had
a great sense of humour and would do things that
teachers arent allowed to now. If you werent
concentrating this wooden block would fly
across the room. So there were all sorts
of slightly unpolitically correct
ways of teaching!
Q

were at school?

subjects closest to their hearts
Clockwise from front left Anna
Kennedy, Mireille Williams,
Ann Maxwell, David Cameron,
Kate Hardcastle, Margaret
Aspinall and Claire Lomas
Claire Lomas, from
Melton Mowbray,
Leicestershire was
paralysed from the
chest down in a horse-
riding accident.
Q

The Paralympic
Games really
changed the public
perception of people
with disability. How can
you cement and build
on that legacy?
DC: Weve made some
promises about maintaining
funding at the elite level,
which I think is important
because those elite
Paralympic athletes send
such a signal to everybody
else. At the school-sport
level and community
funding weve got some
more work to do to get
that right.
We will shortly be making
an announcement but I
think its about taking the
immense achievement and
saying lets keep going and
do that all over again and
make sure were even more
inclusive in sport than we
have been up to now. I think
we proved that Paralympic
events can be the match
of mainstream sporting
events and so we should
say to other sporting
organisations, have you
thought about that?
Mireille Williams, from
Bristol, helped to rescue
her local preschool from
closure and saved seven
teachers jobs.
Q

Why do you think
people struggle to
volunteer within their
community and how can
you improve this?
DC: One of the reasons
people dont volunteer as
much as they would like,
I feel, is taking that first
step. People think, Id like
to, but who do I ring? What
do I do? Will I be good
enough? There are also
issues about liability and
bureaucracy, which we are
dealing with. Its now easier
to set up a street party and
hold a fundraiser. Weve got
rid of a lot of red tape. I think
one thing we need to dois
get youngsters right at the
start while theyre in school.
Thats why Im very
passionate about the
National Citizen Service

which will involve
every 16-year-old
doing an outward
bound course
staying away
from home
and mixing
with kids
from other
backgrounds,
other
schools
then
coming back
into their
community
[to volunteer].
All the
evidence shows
that once youve
done a bit of
volunteering the
barriers to doing some
more come right down.
Kate Hardcastle, from
Huddersfield, runs a
company that donates
20 per cent of its time
to charitable work.
Q

I believe in our
communities. I
want to do more can
you explain what you
mean by the Big Society?
DC: Its complicated
because there are lots of
different bits to this. Some
people think Big Society is
just about volunteering or
just about fundraising.
It isnt its about much
more than that. Its also
about devolving power to
a local level so people who
want to do more in their
local communities can...
I just think the idea of
more volunteering, more
charitable giving, more
local organisations, more
communities coming
together to fix problems
the more of that the better.
Now I call it the Big Society
you can call it anything you
like. But it exists
Ann Maxwell, from
Dalkeith, Midlothian,
used the experience of
her sons epilepsy to set
up a charity to help other
sufferers.
Q

My son Muir is an
able-bodied 16 year
old, but falls into the camp
of profoundly learning
disabled and will require
24/7 care for the rest of his
life... Might there ever be
a prospect of ring-fencing
funds for high-quality
institutional care?
DC: I dont think that it
should be either direct
payments or good
institutional care for those
who need it. You need to
have, particularly for the
most severely disabled,
high-quality institutional
care for those families
who cant cope
any more
at home.
Sometimes it
just becomes
impossible.
And Ive had
constituency
cases like this.
Loving mums
who gave up
everything for
their children,
but [for
whom], in the
end, the condition was just
so extreme the whole family
was breaking down,
and some element of
institutional care was
important.
So you need to have
that institutional care. But
I would argue that the
system of whats called
individual budgets and direct
payments is a good system.
Because the individual
budget means you try to
bring together everything
that your child needs, and
the direct payment means
that you should get as much
of that as you want in a cash
payment to you, so you can
then arrange the things that
you need whether its getting
some respite care here or
getting a nurse over there.
Margaret Aspinall, from
Liverpool, lost her son in
the Hillsborough tragedy
and has spent the past
23 years campaigning
for the truth as part of
the Hillsborough Family
Support Group.
Q
Some people are
starting to say theyd
like some form of safe
standing brought back at
football matches. We
never want standing [at
games]
brought back
into this
country ever
again. Id
like to ask
what your
governments
feelings are
on standing
in football
stadiums?
DC: I think
we should
listen to the experts, and so
far the experts seem to have
said thatall-seater
stadiums are the right
approach and we shouldnt
change anything unless
someone produced some
overwhelming evidence
[to the contrary]... But to me
football matches now are
about all-seater stadiums,
particularly when you
consider the size of the
crowds. I went to watch
my team, Villa, being beaten
eight-nil by Chelsea the
other day and when you
look around the idea of
replacing seats with standing
would have all sorts of
dangers so there are no
plans to do that.
Anna Kennedy, from
Uxbridge, set up a
special-needs school
after her two autistic sons
were turned away from
mainstream education.
Q

What are the
Governments
priorities for children
with autism? Parents
need to hear something as
they cant see a light at the
end of the tunnel.
DC: We need to help
parents make choices. The
approach this government
is taking is much more
trusting of parents, saying
you should have more
choice in safe, special
schools and stopping
the closure programme,
which we did.
And then we want to put
more power in the hands of
parents, whether its through
individual budgets and
direct payments, so youre
in command. We are also
changing the statementing
process to make it more
inclusive of additional
things, other than education.
I just think the
idea of more
volunteering and
more communities
coming together to
fix problems the
more the better.

am And stretch
Before you get up, point your toes up and
down 10 times, circle your feet ve times
clockwise and anticlockwise and stretch your
arms above your head, says chartered physiotherapist
Sammy Margo. These small moves will help to get
your circulation going and help you warm up your
joints and muscles for the day ahead.

am
Eat a
sarnie
It may sound odd, but its something
you can make the night before to save
time in the morning, advises registered
nutritionist Dr Carina Norris, and its far
better than sugary cereals. And for a
hot start, just make a toastie. You can
keep it low-fat and its a good way to
include some protein a secret weapon
to sustain you through the morning.
Try egg and low-fat mayo, chutney
with a little low-fat grated cheese, or
low-fat soft cheese and a little smoked
salmon, all on wholegrain bread to up
your bre. Grab some fruit too.
10
.
30am Change position
Sitting in the same position at work, especially if youre slumped over your desk,
can lead to aches and pains, says Sammy. And being sedentary is bad news for
health. So keep moving little and often during your day (small breaks and simple
stretching recommended!) and youll reverse that C-shape posture. Make it
more fun by having a competition with your colleagues to see who can say
stretch time rst. Why not do it at 12pm and 430pm, too? Heres just one easy
stretch to try: standing or sitting, interlink your ngers behind your back and
stretch backwards. For more work tness tips, visit csp.org.uk/your-health.
815am
Fitness rst
Whether on the school run or your way to
work, get out rst thing, urges Sammy.
The light exposure helps set your body
clock so youll feel awake and sleepy at the
right times. Youll also be tting in some
exercise early on. You dont need to do a
30-minute session or get to a gym research
shows small bouts of exercise can be just
as effective. Try three 10-minute daily bouts
of exercise where youre breathing harder
than usual (like brisk walking) and youll
be getting the recommended amount of
moderate-intensity activity for adults for
inspiration, visit tesco.com/living. Or why
not join a sponsored walk for a charity such
as Diabetes UK? You could even take part
in a walk during Diabetes Week, 9-15 June
(diabetes.org.uk/walk-for-diabetes).
8am
Plan ahead
Before you leave home, take just two
minutes to plan your day mentally,
advises GP Dr Radha Modgil. You can
do that in your head while you make a
cuppa, or write a list. If you live on your
phone, try a to-do list app such as
Astrid or Remember The Milk.
It will help you to feel on
top of things.

Graze on fruit
One of the best ways to lower blood
pressure and reduce your risk of heart
disease is to eat less salt, says Carina.
Check labels more than 15g salt per
100g is high*. Plus fruit can help
protect your whole cardiovascular
system (heart, lungs and blood
vessels), thanks to the antioxidants
they contain. So if hunger strikes
mid-morning, choose fruit over salty
snacks. Making tweaks like this to your
diet is easier and more effective than
setting yourself a vague goal such as
I will eat healthily. Together, theyll
help reduce your risk of developing
health issues such as Type 2 diabetes
and a stroke.

.
30
pm Stand up!
Whether youre waiting for the
photocopier or the bus,
standing presents a great body-shaping opportunity, says
Dean Hodgkin, tness expert at Energie Fitness Clubs and
spa Ragdale Hall. Clench your buttocks to tone without
anyone realising, he suggests. Also, lift one leg very slightly
off the oor, and x your balance this strengthens your
core muscles and pulls in your tummy (so you look slimmer
over time). If youre waiting for the kettle to boil, try some
squats. All these movements add up to big gains.

Get out!
We all mean to do it, but a break from
work at lunch is so important. Its an
ideal time to get some exercise and also
your ll of vitamin D. Around 10 to 15
minutes of daily sunshine on your bare
arms, which youll get walking around
outside, should be all you need, says
Dr Modgil. Just be aware that the time in
the sun youll personally require depends
on factors such as skin type, and dont
allow your skin to redden or burn.
Finally, it gives you a chance to get
away from your morning mentally, says
Dr Modgil. Find a quiet place even if
its for ve to 10 minutes and take in
your surroundings rather than overly
thinking. Such breaks (preferably mid-
morning and afternoon too) can have a
massive impact on mental health and
your ability to handle stressful events.

Cast-iron lunch
Try to incorporate some iron-rich foods
in your lunch, says Carina. The latest
National Diet and Nutrition Survey
**

revealed that the intakes of 22 per cent
of women in the UK are seriously
decient in this mineral, which could
lead to the weakness and breathlessness
associated with anaemia. Good sources
include lean red meat, beans and
lentils. You could eat a lean beef and
salad sandwich on wholegrain bread,
or a bean salad or wrap. Drink pure
orange juice at the same time its
vitamin C boosts your absorption of
vegetarian iron sources. And bear in
mind, Your lunch should ideally always
contain some lean protein, slow-release
carbs such as brown pasta and two
portions of fruit or veg.
4
pm Tackle
hunger
Topping up your
energy levels with a healthy snack
mid-afternoon helps you keep away
from cakes and biscuits, says Carina.
A combination of slow-release carbs
with some protein works best. Try a
couple of oatcakes with low-fat cottage
cheese, or a thin spreading of peanut
butter. Though whenever you feel the
need to snack, its always helpful to
ask yourself whether you really are
hungry or perhaps
bored or stressed.
Dont forget to
drink. Its essential
for hydration, kidney
function, skin and to
avoid headaches, says
Dr Modgil. As a
guide (your personal
needs may vary), the
Department of Health
recommends 12 litres
daily. Choose water,
milk and fresh fruit
juice over zzy drinks.

pm
Enjoy
yourself
Aim to actively relax before you
go home, says Dr Modgil. Doing
something in an environment
other than the workplace or home
for as little as 30 minutes, signies
the end of the day and helps you
unwind. It could be exercise (such
as walking or cycling on your way
home), seeing a friend, or going to
the cinema. But if thats not
realistic owing to family
commitments, a bath at home
later on also counts.
1020pm
Zone out
Sleep is vital for health and so, too,
is a bedtime routine to help you
wind down from your hectic day,
say experts.
To help you relax your mind
before you sleep, take yourself
somewhere you cant see to-do
tasks, even if its the bathroom,
says Dr Modgil. Then just sit for ve
minutes. Close your eyes and simply
be aware of where you are. Noticing
how long it feels will help you realise
how much of the day you spend
rushing around. And if an issues
bothering you? Tell yourself youll
deal with it tomorrow. For relaxation
exercises, sleep-inducing music
and other clever features, check
out the SleepWell app via
sleepcouncil.org.uk.

.
30pm Dine together
With todays hectic lifestyles, sitting down to a family meal may be a big
ask, admits Carina. But research from the University of Illinois suggests
that kids who share family meals at least three times a week are more
likely to eat healthy foods and have good eating habits. It also presents
a great time to connect with your partner and kids.
Try to ensure everyone gets a say you could even turn it into a game
with a conversation jar of topics or questions. And for an easy way to
eat a healthy dinner that wont increase your waistline, Fill up with
vegetables, says Carina. Have a protein portion the size of your palm,
cover most of your plate with veggies, and put starchy carbohydrates
such as potatoes or rice on the remaining third of the plate.
845
pm
Make plans
Take time to see your friends and family.
Try to make an arrangement once or
twice a week and set them up so you
have a months worth planned in
advance, says Dr Modgil. Connecting
with your loved ones provides the right
balance with your work life, makes you
feel good, builds self-esteem and can
also help lower depression.
11
pm
Get into
position
Posture is
key for a good
nights sleep,
says Sammy. Its about making sure your
body is supported correctly so it doesnt
twist and therefore strain your back, hips or
neck. Try this trick to ensure you start off in
the right position: if you sleep on your side,
place a normal-sized pillow between your
knees; on your back, place it under your
knees; on your front, put a pillow under your
tummy. Lastly, try to go to bed and get up
at the same time each day without making
it too early or too late, so you have a
consistent routine, and ensure you get the
optimal amount of sleep for you. Though it
can vary, on average, most adults seem to
need between six to eight hours.

Fun, fundraising events and charities
to give support to this summer
Record breakers
A huge thank you to everyone who supported the
Tesco Charity of the Year partnership with Cancer
Research UK over the past year. The money is still
being counted, but Tesco says its set to smash
its record-breaking target of raising 10 million
in one year. This will help towards the goal of
beating cancer through early diagnosis. Of course,
the work Tesco is doing for Cancer Research UK
doesnt end there. Read on to find out how you
can get involved with this years Race for Life
event, or visit raceforlife.org/tesco.
Food collection
In December Tesco launched its Help
Feed People in Need campaign, which
(including our 30% top-up) resulted in
enough donations to provide 24 million
meals. Tesco works with The Trussell
Trust foodbanks and FareShare to
collect food to feed those in need,
either through local
foodbanks or community
groups. To get involved in our
next campaign, visit a store
on 5 or 6 July and donate
an item from the in-store
shopping list. A tin of soup is
all it takes to help make a
difference to those in need.
Race
for Life
Ladies, its time to show cancer whos
in charge at Cancer Research UKs
Race for Life. You can run, walk or
even dance 5km at an event near you.
Tesco will be supporting this event for
the 12th year running. Show your
support by buying one of these
products and enter at
raceforlife.org/tesco.
Diabetes UK
Tesco and its National Charity Partner, Diabetes UK,
are raising funds for research that could lead to a
possible vaccine for Type 1 diabetes. They also aim to
support people living with diabetes as well as helping
others to reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes.
CASE STUDY Jessica, 20, a Tesco
customer assistant from Harrow,
was diagnosed with Type 1
diabetes in August 2012 after
experiencing weight loss, extreme
thirst and severe exhaustion.
I was shocked by my diagnosis and cried for
hours, but at the same time I was relieved I
had an answer to what was happening to me.
I didnt have a clue about diabetes. Now Im
working out how to fit it into my life, rather than
letting it take over. If Tesco and Diabetes UK
can help people like me, thats a great thing.
To learn more, visit diabetes.org.uk/tesco.

Jenda Martin, 49, lives in west London
with her husband.
I was made redundant from my previous job in
January last year, which left us in need of extra
income so we could continue to pay our mortgage.
We found a website mondaytofriday.com that
helped us rent out our spare room to a professional
during the week, which meant wed have the house
to ourselves over the weekend. Its tax-free cash,
which helps take the pressure off financially
and our lodger has become a friend, too.
Though Im working again, I still look for ways to
save. I carpool with a colleague and she contributes
towards petrol costs. I do it with someone I know,
but you can use sites such as liftshare.com and
nationalcarshare.co.uk to find someone.
Ive signed up to BzzAgent (bzzagent.co.uk).
It sends you products and coupons, and you
share your opinions about them with friends.
Its a great way to try new products for free.
The recession has also made me a savvier
spender. I love fashion but started shopping at
charity shops in posh areas, where you can buy
designer bargains for less. I do simple things
too like buying cheap cuts of chicken and
fish to feed our cat, as it costs less than cat food.
When I want to treat myself to a haircut or
massage, I get it done by beauty students at
places local to me. Or theres wahanda.com
which shows beauty deals in your area.
When we go out to eat with friends,
well choose places where we can use
vouchers. Shopping centres often
have free brochures, magazines and
leaflets with discounts inside.
Its been satisfying to realise that I can
live for less. Im able to do most of the things
I want to do without breaking the bank.
Its made me a
savvier spender

Nellie Morley, 45, from Chiswick,
lives with her two daughters.
As a single mum, Ive always had to
be careful with money. But since the
recession, Ive thought much more about
how I can provide for my family.
Utility bills and insurance are expensive
non-negotiables, so I use comparison sites
such as theenergyshop.com to find the
best deals. I also pick up the phone if you
talk to someone, rather than going online,
you can negotiate a better deal.
I joined Avios, avios.com [previously
Airmiles], which gives you points for credit
card spending. Its great because thats
money Id be spending anyway on petrol
or the weekly shop. I use the points to pay
for a family holiday with the girls.
The recession has made me realise that
you can always get things cheaper. You
can get group discounts at the cinema or
theme parks, even if youre not part of a
formal organisation you can just club
together with a group of friends. With this
in mind, I signed up for joint membership
at a gym with a friend. Everything is
included, so now I go regularly with my
daughters its entertainment for us all.
Most people know about lastminute.com
for holidays, but you can also use it to get
discounts on activities. Ive taken the girls
ice skating and to the theatre. We also
look on free-events.co.uk to find out
whats happening in our area.
I love to eat out, so I bought a Tastecard
(tastecard.co.uk) which gets me half-price
discounts at lots of restaurants. At home,
well eat vegetarian meals a couple of
nights a week because its cheaper.
I save on clothes for myself so I can
spend on my daughters. When I shop for
them online, I search for voucher codes
for 10 per cent off or free delivery.
I want my girls to grow up
understanding the value of
money and to realise that
you can still do and have
nice things on a budget.
You can always
get things cheaper

Lisa Hart, 46, who is from Reading,
lives with her husband and her
teenage daughter.
The recession really hit home for my family
in 2010. My husband is self-employed and,
with less work around, we had to make
major changes to our outgoings.
For extra cash, I complete online surveys.
Its never going to make me rich, but it
adds up. With valuedopinions.co.uk I get
paid in Amazon vouchers, which I keep or
give as birthday and Christmas presents.
Ive become very good at knowing where
to look for savings. I use cashback sites and
apps like quidco.com and shopitize.com,
which effectively pay you to do your
weekly shop. You can also get paid for
checking in to places on the high street
you dont even have to buy anything.
Living on a budget doesnt mean I cant
do things I enjoy. I love the cinema and
use showfilmfirst.com and freecinema
tickets.co.uk to find free local screenings.
My husband and I collect Tesco Clubcard
points, which we use for days out and
treats. As well as earning points through
shopping, we collect even more by recycling.
So far, our points have paid for a yearly
Merlin pass, which weve used to take out
our grandchildren. Ive also exchanged
them for restaurant vouchers and have
taken my father-in-law out for his birthday.
We love small luxuries. For our 25th
wedding anniversary, we had a lovely
night away with a hotel offer on KGB Deals
(kgbdeals.co.uk). I also watch the chain
hotels, as they do offers during the year.
We were able to book a 10 room with
Travelodge (travelodge.co.uk) during last
years Jubilee bank holiday.
The recession was a lightbulb moment
for me because I knew I couldnt carry on
spending as I had in the past. Now I have
a much better relationship with money
and feel my life has been enriched too.

Kids go free
Wherever youre hoping to travel to abroad
this year, you could benefit from taking out
travel insurance. And this summer, kids go
free with Tesco Travel Insurance. (Does
not apply to UK travel and group policies,
insurance add-on products or any conditions
which require medical screening.) Buy a
Single Trip family policy for the same price
as a couple policy when you buy from
22 May to 13 August 2013. Dont forget, you
can even use your Clubcard vouchers to pay
your premium. For details visit tescobank.com.
Tesco Travel Insurance is provided by Ageas
Insurance Limited.
Tesco Bank has recently
been awarded Best New
Mortgage Provider by
MoneyNet. It offers a range
of mortgages, and is the only provider
also to offer Clubcard points
*
.
*
Your home may be repossessed if
you do not keep up repayments
on your mortgage.
tescobank.com
Fuel for thought
Thinking of taking a trip abroad in your car? Then
compare the price of the fuel you use before you
go and decide where it will be cheapest to fill up.
Last year some petrol was cheaper in
Spain and Austria than in the UK, but
more expensive in Germany and
Ireland

. Unleaded fuel is
often better value
here, though diesel
can be cheaper
in France
and Belgium.

Get gorgeous for the sunshine months
with our easy, budget-friendly tips
this summer
3
If you love the clean
feeling you get from a
good, brisk body buff,
slip on a pair of Tesco
Exfoliating Mitts, 1, every
morning add a dollop of your
shower gel and away you go!
6
We all suffer from
a bit of cellulite,
but you can minimise
the orange-peel effect.
Use a dry body brush to
buff your bottom half before
showering to stimulate
circulation and improve your
skin tone. Add a slathering of
firming body cream twice daily.
8
Your hands can
be an age give-
away so its worth
giving them some
TLC in the summer. Use
an anti-ageing hand cream,
with a UV filter, regularly.
4
A five
oclock
shadow
in your armpits
is not attractive.
Razors cut hair
down to surface
level so whats
left will show
up as stubble.
Swap shaving
for waxing. We
swear by Nair
Soothing Body
Wax Strips,
669/20 strips.
1
Start summer as you
mean to go on with a
subtle golden glow. Rub
St Tropez Gradual Tan
(below), a build-a-tan
moisturiser, in circular motions.
Wash hands after applying.
5
A good
skincare
regime is key
in warmer months.
Cleanse, tone,
moisturise and use
facial scrub twice a
week. Dont rub too
rigorously, as it can
tear at the skin,
and always wash
off product with
lukewarm rather
than hot water.
9
Square is hotly tipped
to be this summers
shape for nails, but
it wont suit everyone,
particularly if your nail beds
are small. Softly rounded
edges are flattering, or if you
like them long, do as Brit
superstar Adele does and
file them into soft points.
2
A weekly dose of a deep-
action exfoliator is essential
for smooth skin. Designed to
buff away dead skin cells, it
cleanses deeply and purifies
your skin. Pay attention to
knees, ankles and elbows.

ways to be
beautiful
7
Apply body cream
within a couple of
minutes of showering
while your skin is still
slightly damp to lock
in as much moisture
as possible before it
evaporates. The same goes
for facial moisturiser too.

12
Sunshine can
really show
up stray
facial hair
so ensure your brows are
up to scrutiny. Invest in
a pair of slant tweezers,
which will catch even the
shortest stragglers.
13
Shiny,
healthy hair
has a lot to
do with the way you
dry it. Blot (dont rub)
excess water with a
towel then, if you can,
leave to dry naturally.
If you must blow-
dry, wait until its
80 per cent dry and
dose with a heat-
protection spray such
as Pro Formula Hair
Defence Heat Spray.
14
For luminous
skin with light
coverage, try
Barbara Dalys Face Lift
Foundation (below).
For an even lighter
finish, try mixing with
a little moisturiser for
that coveted bare-faced-
beauty look.
15
Dont forget to
take good care of
your feet. For a flawless
pedicure at home, turn
to page 86.

As far
as nail
colours
go, the
catwalks flaunted
everything from white
to black with a rainbow
of brights in between.
Pick a colour and go
crazy with it a reverse
French (white half
moons with a coloured
nail), diagonal stripes
or feather effects are
set to be huge.

sun exposure. Our pick is the

Reader
panellist
Louise Wood says:
The nail polish Maybelline Color Show went
on beautifully and was easy to apply. My
nails usually get smudged quickly, but it was
completely dry within a few minutes, ready
for another coat. I would probably wear this
bold shade (Power Red) at an evening event.
23
Epsom
bath salts
are rich in
magnesium and could
encourage your body to
shed toxins, boost
digestion and minimise
cellulite. Simply pour
some into your bath
and soak for 20
minutes as the salts
work their magic.
25
Your
posture can
help you
look slimmer and more
confident. Straighten
your spine, open out
your shoulders and
pull in your stomach
muscles (you should
still be able to breathe
normally).
18
Strong,
gooey lips
look wrong
in summer. Opt for a
sheer-textured liquid
lipstick that looks
fresh and doesnt feel
sticky. A lip balm with
SPF is also a wise
investment.
22
Make
swimsuit
shopping
free from stress by
sticking to these simple
rules big bikini briefs
make big bottoms look
bigger while push-up
tops wont do small-
boobed sunbathers
any favours. Enhance
what you have!
16
Go for a cream
rather than a
powder blusher for your
face. Youll find it easier
to blend and will love the
fresh glow it gives. Pick
a rosy pink shade and
apply it to the apples of
your cheeks, whisking it
up towards your temples.
21
Exercise it
may not be
your favourite
pastime, but hard
work will pay off. Focus
on an hour of high-
intensity cardio three
days a week to help
bring results. Target
the places on show in
a bikini: lunges for your
bum and legs, push-
ups and sit-ups for your
arms and tum.
19
Summer is
no time to pile
on eye make-
up. Stay simple with a
ring of coloured eyeliner
and lashes defined by
black waterproof
mascara. Buy a good eye
make-up remover that
will take off waterproof
mascara gently.

17
A dusting of bronzer
will give your face a
hint of a tan and will
enhance it once you do.
Load up a big fluffy brush, tapping
off any excess colour, then sweep it
over your cheeks, forehead, nose
and also under your chin.
24
Eat right but
dont diet.
Swap white bread,
pasta and sugary
foods for fresh greens
and protein-rich
foods. Try smaller
portions but do allow
yourself small treats.
20
Bare skin is much prettier
than heavy foundation in
the summer, but if you crave some
coverage, look for the new and
exciting complexion-correcting
(CC) creams. LOrals new Nude
Magique CC Cream, 10/30ml
(333/10ml), will fade any uneven
pigmentation problems, making your
skin appear fresh and flawless.

Remove any leftover cream from

prevent a streak-free paint job, then
apply a layer of base coat.
Paint them Now for the colour:
apply two thin coats of nail polish
carefully, leaving a few minutes
between each before finishing off
with a top coat.
When painting, start in the centre
of the nail and work out to the edges
as the polish may spread out slightly.
Perfect them A cotton bud dipped
in nail-polish remover will rub away
any mistakes. Nails should be
touch-dry in 20 minutes, but stay
without shoes if you can or ease on
flip-flops. If youre in a rush, blast
your toenails with a hairdryer on
its coolest setting or plunge your
feet into ice-cold water.

Soften them Take one foot and
buff away any hard or callused areas
using a double-sided foot file, starting
with the rough side before flipping
over to the smoother side. Massage
a little foot scrub into the skin to
exfoliate, then rinse and pat dry.
Apply a foot mask or an intensive
cream and wrap your foot in clingfilm
for an hour to help it penetrate.
Repeat with your other foot, then
clean away the mask and massage
in some foot lotion, focusing on
the heels and balls of your feet.

If you dont own a
foot spa, simply fill
a plastic bowl with
a inch or so of water
(just enough to cover
your feet) and squirt a
few drops of foot soak
into it. This will soften
and hydrate feet as
well as relaxing you.
Fabulous massage
Smooth foot cream all over
your foot then, with the tips
of your fingers, slowly circle
around the ankle bone about
six times. Using your thumb,
knead the sole of each foot
with firm, circular movements.
(Make your hand into a fist
and use your knuckles if you
want more pressure.) Gently
pull each toe giving it a good
wiggle and stretch. Lightly
stroke over the tops of your
feet to finish, then repeat
with the other foot.

Pearls a winner!
My favourite catwalk look is this Chanel twisted knot.
Wind your hair around heated rollers to create a wavy
texture, brush the length into a low ponytail and divide
into two sections. Cross these sections over once, twist
up and secure with a Pearl Twist, 6. Finish by using
your fingers to gently pull out strands of hair. Trs chic!

Its that time of year
when the thought of
warmer weather is
appealing, but baring
our legs, not so! But all it
takes is a little TLC and
those winter legs can be
beautifully smooth and
silky, and ready for
summer. Epilating is a
perfect choice for women
who want smooth, long-
lasting results without
the worry of awkward
in-between days
giving us ladies the
freedom to wear what
we like, when we like,
this season. But the
benefits dont stop there,
epilating is also:
*
Long-lasting Results
can last for as long as
four weeks.
*
Effective Epilating
can remove stubborn
hairs as short as 05mm.
*
Convenient You
can remove hair in
the comfort of your
own home.
Epilators have come a
long way in the past few
years and were
particularly excited
about the Braun Silk-pil

Playtime
Keep the kids occupied with
outdoor toys (and even their
own bench set) while you get
on with fring up the barbecue
or the important business of
unwinding. Of course its also
a great opportunity to get the
whole family playing together
from an energetic bout of Frisbee
to a simple game of cricket.
And nothing beats a trampoline
for active entertainment that
all ages can try pretty much
all at once (just perhaps not
straight after your big lunch!).

enchanting than Bivouac,
a collection of rustic shacks
hidden away between the
Yorkshire dales and the
moors. Despite its isolation,
theres no shortage of fun
and interesting things to
do: kids can try their hand
at pottery painting and
pony trekking, learn forest
skills or drumming, while
adults can relax in the hot
tub, enjoy a wine tasting
or discover their Paul
Hollywood side by taking
the artisan bread-making
class. And of course theres
the gorgeously rugged
Yorkshire landscape to
explore, too. The caf at the
centre of the site serves
great family food, and has
many evening activities
(as well as a playroom for
the kids). But if you prefer,
you can hole-up in your
shack, where heating and
hot water is provided by
the wood-burning range,
and lighting is courtesy
of candles rather than
electricity. A great way to
reconnect with a more
natural way of life.

Somersets Cheddar
Gorge are located in one
of Englands most iconic
landscapes. The gorge
would have begun forming
about one million years
ago during the last Ice
Age, so its steeped in
history, not to mention
beauty. There are plenty
of activities on offer, from
hiking to rock climbing,
but a visit to the caves
themselves is a must. Stay
nearby and spend time
exploring the area, or take
in the scenery from the
comfort of an open-top
bus. There is a lot to see
and do. Cottages4you has
a range of self-catering
options, including the
delightful Swallows Loft
on a working dairy farm,
around 15 minutesdrive
from the gorge. Sleeping

16 spears asparagus,
ends trimmed
8 slices Parma ham, halved
4 tbsp readymade
hollandaise sauce
1 Cook asparagus in
a pan of lightly salted
boiling water for 3
minutes. Drain well.
2 Wrap a half slice of
Parma ham round each
cooked asparagus spear.
3 Gently warm the
hollandaise sauce. Spoon
into a small serving dish
to dip the asparagus in or
drizzle over the veg.
FAST FACTS
With a delicate yet
distinctive taste,
asparagus is also high
in folates, which is what
gives it a reputation for
being a natural
aphrodisiac! Try Johns
way of enjoying the
veg: tossed in olive oil,
seasoned and then
roasted in the oven
for about 6 minutes.
Or try making our really
easy recipe below.

Its often
said that
British
asparagus
is the very
best in the
world and we have the
growers to thank for
consistently producing
good crops year after
year. One grower is John
Chinn (above), who runs
Cobrey Farm in the Wye
Valley with his sons,
Henry and Chris. As
one of the UKs most
innovative growers, the
farm has been supplying
Tesco with asparagus
since 2005. And the

an especially
sweet and
tender variety,
is one thats
exclusive to
the stores.
The crop is hand
harvested and rapidly
chilled, using cold water,
within one hour of being
picked, explains John.
Every effort is made to
preserve its freshness
and sweetness and,
thanks to the on-site
packing facility, the farm
aims to get the produce
to the supermarket by
the end of the day.
The microclimate in
the Wye Valley helps
to produce the earliest
and sweetest asparagus
in the UK the season
runs from late April
to late June but we
often start harvesting
in late March, says
John. We work with
Cranfield University to
design an eco-friendly
field layout that
incorporates wildflowers
and butterfly habitats
into the grassy margins
and areas.

Nectarines should be firm with
a little give and a sweet aroma.
2
Storing at room temperature
will help them ripen and have
maximum flavour. Once ripe, keep
in the fridge and eat within 2-3 days.
3
To halve, run a knife around the
middle, twist halves in opposite
directions and remove the stone.
Storing and preparing nectarines
4
To skin, drop the fruit into
a pan of boiling water for
15-30 seconds, then plunge
into cold water. The skin
should now come off easily.
5
Enjoy nectarines out of season
by freezing them when at their
best. Cut in half, pit, then poach
in sugar or reduce to a pure.

As summer comes in, one of lifes
real pleasures is enjoying sun-
ripened juicy, fresh fruit. And
deliciously sweet nectarines
from the same family as peaches
are no exception. Tany Nature
in Spain has been supplying
Tesco with their nectarines for 15
years. This family run business,
has an enduring passion and in-
depth knowledge of stone fruit,
which really sets them apart.
Its in the detail
Our stone fruit is grown in the
warm, sunny climes of southern
Spain, says Tany Natures quality
manager, Francisco Agudo.
Every step of our process is
overseen to ensure we grow
the best possible nectarines and
that they reach stores in great
condition. Nectarines, which
This is a great time to savour fresh
nectarines, grown with tender loving
care in southern Spain
Nectarines
are similar to peaches but have
smooth rather than fuzzy skins,
should still be firm with just a
little give and a sweet smell
when you buy them in store. So
maintaining that top quality for
Tesco, Francisco says, includes
making sure our fruit has a great
colour and sweet taste.
The nectarine season for
Tany Nature runs from May
until the first week of September.
Bearing
fruit
Throughout that period, says
Francisco, we provide specially
selected varieties of both white
and yellow-fleshed nectarines for
Tesco. These are the two main
types of nectarine: white-flesh is
typically slightly sweeter with lots
of aroma, and yellow-flesh has a
more balanced flavour thats
tangy and sweet. Enjoy nectarines
as you would an apple or try our
tempting dessert (see right).

Nectarines
Slice ripe nectarines in half
and remove centre stone, place
on a baking tray, cut side up,
and drizzle with a little light
olive oil or melted butter.
Sprinkle each half with half a
teaspoon of caster or Demerara
sugar and bake in the oven
(gas 4, 180C, fan 160C) for
25 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

1 Preheat the oven to
gas 7, 220C, fan 200C.
Season the lamb rack
and spread evenly with
1 tsp of the harissa paste.
2 In a food processor,
whizz 50g (2oz) of the
ciabatta to breadcrumbs,
then mix with 1 tbsp of
the olive oil and season.
Press onto the harissa
paste to form a crust.
3 Wrap the bones of
the lamb racks in foil to
prevent them discolouring,
then transfer to a baking
tray and roast in the top
half of the oven for 15
minutes, or until the crust
is golden and the lamb
is still a little pink, but
cooked through.
4 Meanwhile, prepare
the peperonata salad. In
a large bowl, mix 2 tbsp
of the olive oil with the
remaining harissa. For
the croutons, tear the
remaining ciabatta into
25cm (1in) pieces (use
about 150g/5oz of bread),
and add to the bowl with
the harissa mixture. Heat
a frying pan, add the
harissa coated ciabatta
chunks and fry over a
medium heat for 1-2
minutes, until golden.
Remove from the heat
and leave to cool a little.
5 In a bowl, combine the
roasted peppers, olives
and croutons. Drizzle over
the remaining olive oil and
scatter over the chopped
parsley. Toss until all the
ingredients are well mixed.
6 Remove the lamb from
the oven and leave to rest
for 5 minutes, covered
with foil, then slice into
cutlets. To serve, divide
the lamb cutlets between
4 plates and serve with
the peperonata salad.
800g (1lb) rack of lamb,
French trimmed (2 chops
per person)
3 tsp harissa paste
1 loaf ciabatta
4 tbsp extra-virgin
olive oil
4 roasted peppers,
drained and sliced
100g (3oz) pitted
Kalamata olives
4 tbsp roughly chopped
flat-leaf parsley

Now that the
suns out properly
(or should be!)
there are plenty of
fresh ingredients
coming into
season, and just
as many wines queuing up to be
enjoyed with them. The crunchy
fresh flavours of early summer
green beans, watercress and fresh
garden peas can be mirrored
and complemented by white
wine grape varieties such as
Sauvignon Blanc or Austrias
Grner Veltliner, a grape that
makes restaurant sommeliers
swoon with delight over how
well it can go with food.
The above wines arent just
good with greens though, theyre
also perky enough for lightly
flavoured fish and seafood but
then Muscadet from the Loire
was a wine practically invented
to be paired with fish. Pink-
fleshed fish such as salmon and
crab are ultra tasty alongside
a slightly chilled Pinot Noir,
especially if theres chilli in the
recipe, and if not, a feisty ros
also works well.
If youre planning a barbecue,
lamb (see p105) is perfectly in
season now. Grilled simply, it
can go with lots of different reds,
and would be just as happy
alongside a spicy north Italian
red as it would a juicy Pinot Noir.
Asparagus and tomatoes are
in season, too, and although
theyre difficult to match
with wine, it can be done. To
enhance the taste of summer,
try a southern hemisphere Pinot
Noir alongside a herby tomato
salad or a Grner Veltliner with
some freshly steamed British
asparagus. Turn over for a few
more summer tipples to try.
Reader panellist
Alistair Ellmer says:
This crisp Muscadet (right) was fresh, sweet and very tangy.
The lemon flavours would go very well with fish or other
seafood. I would recommend it for a summertime soire.

Who holds the number
one spot in your life?
My family really means
everything to me.
Without question, my
children Ludo and Iona
[now three and two]
are the most important
part of my life. You can
never truly understand
how important children
are until they arrive.
They kidnap every part
of you in a good way
of course! Also I think
children can bring
partners closer together
theyre this sort of
strong unifying force. As
for the rest of our family,
were all incredibly
close Im very lucky in

of family, we talk to presenter, writer and

Dogs have always been
important to the Fogle family.
I met my wife walking one
her twin boys, but
fortunately we still get
to see her quite a lot.
Which family member
is most like you?
My son Ludo. Were
both a little shy and
reserved, but we try to
overcome that. Plus,
hes never happier than
when hes outdoors.
While I dont see the
resemblance, everyone
says we also look
identical. Were very
close. Which obviously
I am to my daughter too,
but I think the mother-
daughter relationship,
especially at this age,
can be a bit stronger. Im
close to my own father
as well, and were both
terrible when were ill!
Who can you rely on
to make you laugh?
Our dog, Maggi! Shes a
labrador-collie cross and
a real personality. Dogs
have always been
important to the Fogle
family. Theyre how I
met my wife, Marina
we were walking our
dogs in the park. Its
also how my mum and
dad met: Dads a vet,
and Mum took her dog
to him to be treated.
Whats your key to
enjoying family life?
We love the outdoors,
so either parks
in London or the
countryside. My perfect
day would be going
for a big walk together
along a sweeping
beach. It could be any
weather rain or sun.
Maggi would come,
too. Just sharing the
experience splashing
in the sea, digging in the
sand, feeling alive and
enjoying each others
company is what
makes it. I also cant
wait to be able to share
elements of travel and
exciting locations with
my children. When Im
away I miss my family
hugely but then theres
a fantastic reunion
when I get back.
Which family member
would you most like to
have with you if you
found yourself stuck
up a mountain?
My wife. She would be
the one person. Shes
also my best friend.
What might surprise
us about you?
My hobby is interior
design its my secret
passion. Ive designed
our whole house and its
a special treat for me to
go to furniture shops
and look around.
Whose family would
you join for a day?
The Beckhams. They
must be a fun family,
and youd have a dad
who is so cool! Imagine
David Beckham turning
up at your school sports
day it cant get much
better than that.
