From the Editor
Welcome to a New Year and a new magazine. Christmas is almost over and I for one am definitely ready for a rest from over indulging (I say this every year!); I think I consumed a week's worth of calories in one day, but it was a lovely Christmas Day spent with family. And there’s always January for shedding the pounds! Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the celebrations too?
Good job that the team at Nutracheck are on hand to give advice and tips this month including seven ways to stay slim forever (this will help for next Christmas!) And why losing weight doesn’t mean giving up the foods you love.
Not that we need more food and festivities, but for the hard-core amongst us, Burns night is Thursday 25th January and in preparation we have some delicious Haggis bon bons with a whisky dipping sauce for you to make at home. If you prefer to celebrate with others there are some events in Northampton - take a look at our What's on guide at the back of the magazine for further details.
You could win a pair of tickets to see the fabulous show that is 'Back to Bacharach' this month. Celebrating the magical music of Burt Bacharach one of the most accomplished popular composers of the 20th Century, who penned some of the most memorable and iconic hits that stand the test of time. The show is currently touring the UK and comes to The Stables in Milton Keynes later this month, see the What's On section for details of how to enter.
If the new year means a move of home for you, Rosie Kinsella is on-hand to offer helpful advice on engaging the use of an interior designer. I always admire the way an designer can put a home together and make it look like something from a Next catalogue, it's a good read and makes absolute sense.
Laura Malpas has been to visit Sir Thomas Tresham’s Liveden New Bield. Set in the heart of rural Northamptonshire, Lyveden is a remarkable survivor of the Elizabethan age. Begun by Sir Thomas Tresham to symbolise his Catholic faith, Lyveden remains incomplete and virtually unaltered since work stopped on his death in 1605. An impressive structure Liveden New Bield is well worth a visit and there is lots to do over there too.
