3 Classic Wedding Breakfast Ideas

wedding breakfast

Planning a wedding breakfast can be a challenging task; your friends and family may have a range of dietary requirements and preferences, and some may be meat eaters and others vegan, but these helpful tips will point you in the right direction for choosing a delicious breakfast for everyone to enjoy.

Sharing platters

If you want to get everyone talking at your wedding reception tables, why not go for a sharing platter of delicious food? It will serve as a great icebreaker between guests and get family and friends interacting on your wedding day.

It’s the perfect alternative to more formal wedding receptions, and you can enjoy delicious hearty bowls of steamed vegetables, fresh salads and an array of kebabs and meat dishes. Follow this up with larger bowls of suckling pig or Moroccan tagine, to spice things up a little!

Food bars

Why not let your guests’ graze on whatever food takes their fancy? Gourmet grazing stations are all the craze at weddings as it allows people to try a bit of what they fancy.

A champagne and oyster bar would look stunning at a wedding breakfast and would be a treat for the eyes as much as the palette! Doughnut walls are also an increasingly popular choice of breakfast at weddings, as people can pop to the sugary wall of joy to get their sugar fix throughout the day – or even the night!

Afternoon tea

How about serving up a traditional afternoon tea for your guests? Sandwiches, scones and cakes are all very filling foods, and is often a more affordable option than a full wedding breakfast. It’s also an ideal choice for couples who want to give their wedding a classic British feel.

It’s a substantial alternative to a traditional wedding breakfast and works perfectly with an evening BBQ or hog roast to indulge in later on in the day!

Project Managing a Major Building Development

Project Managing a Major Building Development

A project manager is a specialist advisor that represents the client and is responsible for the day-to-day management of a project. They rarely participate directly in activities, but instead help to maintain the progress and interaction between the team to help reduce risk of failure, maximise benefits and control costs.

Preparation process

Before a project can take place, the initial preparation tasks must be completed, which includes carrying out a topographic survey of the site.

Surveys determine where existing facilities are, such as drainage, power supply and cabling, along with establishing the best area to install a new infrastructure. These surveys are conducted in rural landscapes, urban areas and brownfield sites, producing accurate and detailed surveys from any natural or artificial area.

Planning the project

Once the initial preparation has taken place, it’s time for the project team to produce a plan for everyone to follow. During this phase, the project manager creates a project management plan – a formal, approved document to guide and advise.

The plan outlines the scope, cost, schedule baselines, communication rules and goals and objectives. Other documents included in the planning phase include scope statement, work breakdown, communication plan and risk management plan.

Carrying out the works

Once the planning stages have begun – it’s time for the work to begin! After a team with all of the consultants and contractors, the project team begins to assign resources, execute project management plans, update the schedule and modify the project plan.

End of the major building development

The last phase is project completion; some project managers will hold a meeting to evaluate the success and failure in the project. A list will be drawn up by the team on any tasks that weren’t accomplished, so they put together a final budget and create a project report.

How To Make Effective Minor Paint Repairs To Your Car

Shiny car in London Nottinghill

Shiny car in London NottinghillRepair those minor scratches and stone chips effectively with some DIY

It’s an unfortunate aspect of car ownership that sooner or later the odd scratch, ding, scrape or mark can appear – stone chips especially are commonplace. Depending on the severity of a scratch or scrape, it may be possible to repair it yourself to a good standard.

Assessing the damage

When deciding whether to tackle the job yourself, assess first whether it’s possible or may be better undertaken by a professional such as in the case of a scratch or chip that’s down to the bare metal. It’s not always your lack of skill that may be the issue – more the lack of access to the right equipment and materials.

That said some advanced polishes and car touch up paint can be obtained easily enough and at reasonable prices to make DIY repair viable.

Light scratches

It may be that a scratch removing fluid such as T-Cut or a cutting compound would do the job. These effectively remove a very thin layer of paint to literally polish out the scratch.

If paint is required

Obviously, you’ll require the correct matching paint, so providing your main dealer or a third party paint supplier with your car’s paint code (check your manual to see where this is) will ensure you use the right shade.

Despite this, you may not get an exact colour match as different batches of even the same colour can be slightly different to one another. That said, if it’s small stone chips perhaps low down on the car this may not show much from a distance.


Don’t try and tackle repairs beyond your scope, but if you do take your time and don’t cut corners. Ensure the area to be repaired is clean, rust free, you can work in a non-dusty environment and follow the instructions on paints and polish containers carefully.

Devil Sticks For Beginners

Devil Sticks

Devil SticksLearning a new juggling skill

Learning to use devil sticks is both challenging and interesting, providing excitement for beginners and experienced jugglers alike.

Juggling as a performance art form has been around for thousands of years. It’s difficult to trace its exact origin, but the first evidence of juggling was discovered in an ancient Egyptian tomb which dates back to around 2,000 BC. References to juggling have also been found in artefacts from Ancient China, Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, indicating that the art form has enjoyed long-lived and widespread popularity.

The word ‘juggle’ comes from ‘jogelen’ – a Middle English word which means to perform or entertain. And juggling has certainly kept people entertained throughout the ages. This popularity has continued to the present day, and juggling acts can frequently be seen in circuses and street performances. Juggling has also evolved over the years with new variations coming to the fore, such as the use of diablos or fire-juggling.

One juggling variation that has gained popularity in recent years is the use of devil sticks. Although not strictly counted as juggling, ‘devilsticking’ is commonplace in many juggling clubs and is an interesting and challenging skill to learn, both for those who are new to juggling and more experienced jugglers who are looking to expand their repertoire.

Originating in China, the basic idea behind devil sticks is to keep a large tapered stick in the air by hitting it alternately with two smaller handsticks. Once the basic elements are mastered, practitioners can move on to more complex patterns and tricks, often using multiple sticks at once.

Starting out

To start out in devil sticks, you first need the right equipment. Devil sticks can be purchased from most providers of juggling supplies, and are available in a range of colours and materials, so it’s easy to find something that suits your needs.

If you’re brand new to the sport, you might want to start out by using flower sticks. These have weighted ends which provide a slower spin, making them easier to use and enabling you to hone your technique before graduating to devil sticks.

The best way to learn the art of devil sticks is to join a juggling or circus skills club. However, if that isn’t for you, there are plenty of online tutorials available which, with a little patience, will help you to master the basics from the comfort of your home.

Learning the tricks

As your confidence builds and your skills improve, you can move beyond the basics, and start building up a repertoire of different moves. There are a number of different skills you can master to add flair and interest to your devil sticks routine. These can vary from fairly simple but still impressive-looking tricks, such as full spins, under leg, and behind the back, through to more complex routines including helicopters, propellers, and double leg rollovers. You can also use clever body moves and balances to help make your tricks look even more impressive.

Showcasing your skills

Once you’re confident in your abilities, it’s time to show off your devil stick skills to an audience and for this you need the right devil sticks. When starting out, cheap yet durable sticks are usually your best option, but as you progress you will probably find that good quality pro devil sticks will serve you better.

When it comes to performance, don’t underestimate the importance of appearance. Even a fairly basic routine can be given a little extra pizzazz with the right sticks – fluorescent or glitter sticks, for example can really help your performance to stand out for the right reasons.

For those whose devil stick skills are more advanced, or who are feeling especially brave, there is also the opportunity to use fire devil sticks which, as the name suggests, can be set on fire to add excitement and drama to your routine.

With so many variations available, devil sticks is a really interesting new skill that never gets dull, and is great for improving balance and hand-eye coordination. So what are you waiting for? Grab some sticks and get practicing – your future audience awaits.

Brexit Britain Prompts Return of Home Sewing

Viking sewing

Viking sewingWhy You Should Get Stitching

In the face of uncertainty, we’re finding enjoyment in traditional pastimes and hobbies like sewing again.

A few years ago, making your own clothes and home accessories was nowhere near as popular as it is now. With the rise of shows such as The Great British Sewing Bee, craft TV channels and sewing publications, there’s so much out there for amateur sewists to engage with and be inspired by. The world is now changing rapidly, and more and more of us are finding enjoyment in hobbies like sewing. Is it a way of escaping the uncertainty of the world around us, or a nod back to that great British tradition of making do and mending? Whatever the reason, we just can’t get enough of it!

Sewing boosts your mood

Gaining a skill can renew your optimism and confidence. For those who are feeling a little unsure of what the future holds politically, picking up sewing is a no brainer. On the other hand, the new opportunities that could lie ahead of us post-Brexit are making many people feel excited about the future. Whatever your views on what’s going on in the world, gaining a skill is a really good way of channelling all your passion into something productive.

How to start

Getting started is easy. There are so many different tools and resources out there to help you out. Whether you like to watch tutorials on YouTube or prefer to practice with the use of books and patterns, you’ll have so much to learn from and enjoy. Social media is full of sewists too – so you can get inspired and make friends. It’s worth investing a good machine too. Bernina sewing machines are some of the most popular ones on the market, and it’s not hard to see why. A brand with a long history, their machines are reliable, easy to use and really help you to unleash your creativity.

Easy on your wallet

As we all tighten our belts, we become more conscious of what things cost. Thankfully, sewing is a pretty cost effective hobby. Once you’ve bought a machine, you’ll find that the cost of fabric and other materials is much less than you’d pay for something from a shop. Yes, it may take more time to make a dress than it does to buy one, but you’ll have something that costs less, suits you more and really stands out.

Building your skills

Why not try a few small projects and then go from from there? Customising your clothes is a great way to get started, as you can be as ambitious as you like. Things like cushion covers and pincushions are really easy little projects that will equip you with vital skills too. Just have a look online and see what catches your eye. Whether you’re making something for your home or for you to wear, the only way you’ll get better is with practice.

Make 2017 the year you start sewing

Right now, it looks as if our national obsession with sewing is showing no signs of abating. Along with baking and other crafts, this traditional hobby is a great way to not only indulge your creative side, but gain a valuable skill too. So if you’ve been wondering whether you should give it a go, just do it! You certainly won’t regret it.

Build A Stronger Team in 2017


teamGood Working Relationships Increase Happiness and Improve Productivity

Research has shown that employees rank their relationships with colleagues higher than having a competitive salary when it comes to enjoying their working day.

Every manager knows the importance of employee satisfaction in running a successful business. People who enjoy what they do will go the extra mile to ensure the quality of the products or services your business offers. And when employees are satisfied with their working conditions, they are less likely to look elsewhere, reducing staff turnover and the associated costs and management time in recruiting and training new staff.

There is, however, more to employee satisfaction than offering a good salary and benefits package. In 2012, Boston Consulting Group conducted a survey of 200,000 people on the subject of happiness in the workplace and found that good relationships with colleagues was second only to being appreciated for one’s work in driving workplace happiness. Salary was way down in seventh place.

No wonder so many leading companies see team building events in London as one of the most valuable investments they can make to protect their business’s most unique and valuable assets – its people.

Why team building?

Team building activities bring a whole host of benefits, but most managers agree that the most noticeable is a marked improvement in the way people communicate and work together. This applies both to colleagues who rely on each other to work effectively and to the way employees and their managers interact with one another.

By helping employees to feel relaxed and comfortable together, the workplace is a more pleasant environment. It becomes a place where people have the confidence and motivation to take on new challenges and reach new heights.

The sense of camaraderie brought about by achieving something as a team can be truly inspiring. One only needs to watch members of a sports team celebrating a win to see the positive energy that is created.

Many team building activities are designed to encourage creative thinking. This is a great skill to take back to the workplace, whether it is to drive the business forward through new product and service development or to come up with better ways of doing day to day tasks.

The ability to think creatively can also be of critical importance when it comes to problem solving or crisis management, something that every business, no matter how successful, has to deal with from time to time.

Different types of activities

To some, “team building activities” just conjure up images of people getting covered in mud while they build makeshift bridges across rivers. Great fun, but maybe not everyone’s first choice in the middle of winter!

However, there are many other types of activity too, including less physical activities that anyone can enjoy, regardless of age or fitness.

At this time of year, indoor activities are particularly popular, and the possibilities are numerous. Many take inspiration from popular TV shows, including the Crystal Maze, the Great British Bake Off, the X-Factor and others.

Staging a team building event does not necessarily mean taking the workforce away during office hours. Evening events are a great way to bring people together, and around this time of year can provide a memorable twist to the traditional Christmas party. With the whole workforce together and full of festive cheer, what could be a better time to build happier and more productive teams?

Luxury Transfers From London City Airport To West End

London West End transfers

London West End transfersThe convenience of touch down to theatre land in around an hour

London City Airport is a popular and highly convenient way to enter and leave London. It’s just ten miles from the West End so, depending on weight of traffic and if you just have hand luggage, it’s possible to be sitting down to dinner or checking into your hotel somewhere in the West End less than an hour after touching down if you use the services of a professional airport transfer chauffeur service.

Ease of transfer

Once arrived at City Airport, the next priority is to get to the West End or other London destination as quickly and easily as possible. Thanks to City being a relatively compact airport, there’s none of the miles of walking you find at airports such as Heathrow or Gatwick so you can be off the plane and into the compact arrivals area in no time.

If you secure the services of a professional chauffeur company offering a fully featured airport transfer service you’ll soon be on your way to the West End. The company will know when your flight landed having tracked it online so the chauffeur will be in arrivals to meet you.

Your car will likely be a spacious limousine type such as a Mercedes S-Class saloon, Range Rover long wheelbase or maybe a Rolls Royce depending on what you choose. If you’re travelling with a party, you may have arranged a spacious Mercedes V-Class people carrier or similar.

The driver will know what to expect at that time with the capital’s traffic loads so will do their utmost to pick a route that gets you to your West End destination as soon as possible.

City Airport: the air travel hub in the midst of the capital

Other London airports aren’t actually in the capital but London City is. Situated in the Docklands area in Newham, the compact airport is ideal for business travellers who need to get to their central London or West End business engagements quickly and easily.

The airport caters primarily for people flying to and from various European destinations including France, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Spain amongst others – and UK locations including Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man. It’s also possible to cross the Atlantic with flights now available to and from New York.

Over four million passengers now use the airport each year, contrasting with the 133,000 passengers who used it in 1988, its first full year of operation.

Limousine company credentials and how to choose one

The basic requirement of your London-centric chauffeur company is that its drivers are PCO (Public Carriage Office) licensed. This is essential for drivers of private hire vehicles, mini cab drivers and chauffeurs and basically proves they’re medically fit and can be trusted (they will have been DBS – previously known as CRB – checked).

Some companies also offer close personal protection services through some or all of their drivers being vetted and licensed by the SIA (Security Industry Authority). This can be of major reassurance to celebrities and those carrying valuable items.

Along with the credentials above, look for a professional and informative website preferably including some testimonials from satisfied clients.

Varying transfer needs

For some, it’s not just City Airport they need to transfer from and too. The Excel Centre – a major exhibition and show venue – is virtually next door to City and it’s quite common for people involved in exhibitions and shows there to need transfers to and from the West End during their stay. Therefore a similar transfer arrangement as when using the nearby airport can be arranged.

Conversely, perhaps business people staying in the West End but needing to get to the City or Docklands area for meetings need transferring from and to the West End. A swift and efficient door to door limousine transfer could be the ideal solution rather than battling the London Underground or hailing black cabs.

A stranger in this town

For those unused to London, the services of a bespoke limousine company can be worth its weight in gold. Access to an expert and fully trained chauffeur providing a door to door service removes the hassle of working out Underground routes, deciding how much to tip the cab driver and navigating a London using the ‘A to Z’.

It’s even possible that a few useful ideas as to where to book theatre tickets, get on the guest list at an exclusive London nightspot or choose a discreet restaurant for dinner can be picked up.

Small Business Guide To DIY SEO

Google DIY advice and tips - tool box

How to boost your business up the search engine rankings

SEO may seem like a ‘dark art’ but there are some simple steps you can take to make your business more visible to prospective customers.

Small business owners are often told that they need SEO to grow their business, but many don’t know why they need it, how to go about it, or even, in many cases, what SEO actually is.

If this sounds familiar, then read on. SEO might seem like somewhat of a ‘dark art’, but it is something that you can easily learn and put into practice. We’ve put together some advice and guidance to introduce you to the SEO basics and help you make SEO work for your business.

So, what is SEO?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. In a nutshell, this basically means optimising a website so that it ranks as highly as possible on search engine results pages.

Think about how you use the Internet. These days, most online experiences begin with a search engine and, generally speaking, the first five results that appear get the majority of clicks. So, if your website is languishing on the second page of a google search, it’s very difficult for prospective customers to find you. And if your customers can’t find you, they may find your competitor instead.

There are a number of elements to SEO, some more complex than others. Here are some of the more basic steps to get you started on your SEO journey

Choose your keywords

Keywords are the words or phrases that people might use when searching for a business such as yours, and when it comes to SEO success, selecting the right keywords is crucial.

For the best results, you should select words and phrases that your customers already use to talk about your business, so consider carrying out some simple market research with your customers such as a short survey or some face-to-face questions.

Ideally, you’re also looking for keywords that have a high search volume combined with a low-medium level of competition. Test your preferred keywords by entering them into the free Google Keyword Tool.

Don’t forget to also include key phrases which include your local area and variations of that area. For example, Essex digital marketing company, SEO Essex Co, explain that you should target a range of keywords, which include your county, local town, and a variety of services in combination with location searches. Danny Hall says: “Always think about where your customers are and what they will search for. You might be based in the main town, but many people will first search for services more local to them, so develop a campaign that covers your entire geographic region”.


Once you have decided on your keywords the next step is to start optimising your website content. Search engines favour certain page fields, so by putting the right words in the right places you can help to improve your search engine rankings.

This is pretty easy to do and simply entails ensuring that a page’s keywords and phrases are included in the page title, body copy and URL. It’s also important to complete a keyword-rich meta-description for each page.

Free tools such as Boostsuite can help to flag up pages which need further optimisation.

Create regular content

Google has a preference for websites that are updated regularly, and writing relevant and engaging blog posts is a great way to keep your site updated.

Create a content schedule to keep you on track and don’t be afraid to ask other people to contribute content, whether it’s a post from a staff member or a guest blog from someone in a related field. Don’t forget to include links to relevant sections of your website where you can.

This is also a good opportunity to establish yourself as an expert in your field, so make sure that the content you post is well-written and useful to potential customers. Good content also garners more views and shares on social networks, which leads us on to…

Go social

Google likes websites and business owners who are active on social media, and it tracks your social interactions such as likes comments and shares. With this in mind, it’s important to dedicate some time to social media if you’re serious about boosting your SEO.

Aside from improving your search engine rankings, having a good social media presence also offers you another way to connect with potential customers and make useful contacts.

Look past your own website

Successful SEO doesn’t just entail focusing on your own website. Looking further afield can also pay dividends.

Obtaining backlinks from trusted, quality websites can really help to improve your SEO and there are a number of ways in which you can do this. Get in touch with suppliers or people you’ve done business with and offer them a testimonial for their website if they can provide a link back to your site. Another option is write guest blogs, which has the added benefit of getting your name known in your industry.

And don’t forget your competitors. You can pick up some useful tips for your own business by reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors’ digital marketing activities

Taking it to the next level

Basic SEO can be pretty simple and straightforward, but it does require a fair amount of ongoing time and effort. And, as a small business owner, you may not have the resources available to dedicate to SEO activities in the longer term.

With this in mind, if you want your business to really compete in the search engine rankings you should think about calling in the experts.

SEO and digital marketing specialists come in all shapes and sizes, and can offer a number of different services. Perhaps you want to commission an agency to help you develop a SEO strategy that you can then run with, or maybe you would prefer to hire a company to devise and create regular content for your online channels.

Whatever, you’re looking for, you can be sure that a professional digital marketing company will have the expertise and resources needed to help you take your SEO to the next level.

2.4% of All Romanian Imports are from the UK

The rock sculpture of DecebalusDespite being miles apart, trading links with Romania are getting ever stronger.

Exports to Romania increased by 17.5% from 2014 to 2015. However, the distance between these two trading partners brings its own challenges. 

Romania is one of the fastest-growing economies in Europe and is looking to consolidate its economic growth as a market economy since joining the EU in 2007. Trade with the UK is a key part of that process, but parcel delivery to Romania from the UK can be expensive and challenging.

Trading partners

In many respects, the UK and Romania could be described as polar opposite. The two countries are separated by about 2,000KM, or 1,250 miles, the vast majority of which is land across more than ten other countries.

One has a stable political history of hundreds of years while the other is a newly established democracy; one is an island nation built with a reliance on international trade and the other is looking to build and develop its overseas partners.

Yet it is these differences that complement each other so well and create a growing interdependency between the two nations.

About Romania

Situated in the south eastern part of Central Europe, Romania shares borders with Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Ukraine and Moldovia.  It has just 225 KM of coastline, on the Black Sea. See to learn more about the country.

For many centuries Romania’s economy was based on agriculture. In the early 20th century, the country was one of the main European producers of wheat, corn and meat, leading to the epithet “the bread basket of Europe.”

Romania’s post-war history as a communist-bloc nation, particularly under the leadership of Nicolae Ceausescu, is widely known. He was overthrown in 1989 following a national uprising and the 1991 Constitution re-established Romania as a republic with a multiparty system and individual human rights of free speech, religion and private ownership.

From the 1970s there had been a shift towards heavy industries, but since the 90s, governments have focused on developing Romania into a market economy. This led to Romania joining NATO is 2004 and the European Union in 2007.


The country’s largest port is at Constanta on the Black Sea, with other river ports on the Danube. Sea freight between the UK and Romania might seem an unlikely and roundabout option, but can be the most cost-effective for larger shipments that are non-urgent.

The rail system appears outwardly chaotic, with a number of operators running different services in different regions. However, anybody encountering the UK system for the first time would undoubtedly take a similar view. Most regions operate an open freight system and the Romanian General Transport Master Plan unveiled in 2015 will seek to rationalise the rail networks.

A high volume of freight is transported by road, and this remains the method of choice for cost-effective transportation of small and medium sized cargoes.

Finally, Bucharest Henri Coandă airport serves as the main hub for air freight cargoes, with around a dozen regional airports scattered elsewhere around the country.

Exporting to Romania

Romania is and will continue to be a crucial trading partner for a growing number of UK exporters. Choosing the right freight service for your business is vital in order to save money and deliver to your customer on time.

What Brexit Means For The Property Market

London housesThe British people finally voted on whether or not to remain in the EU, and by a very small margin, the Leave campaign won. Britain woke up to see the pound at an all-time low and the stock markets in free-fall, as investors all over the world started to turn their backs on the UK economy. There is no doubt that there will be hard times ahead for the British economy, but is it really all doom and gloom?

Supply and Demand Driven Economy

Property is very much a supply and demand driven economy, and for a long time Britain has failed to supply enough new homes for its growing population. Of course, it is not only immigration that has fuelled demand, but also changing social attitudes and demographics of the UK – children want to flee the family nest sooner and people are living longer than ever before. Demand just keeps growing. The low cost of borrowing and Right To Buy schemes have also increased private home ownership in the UK.

Although demand is high there are many obstacles to building, such as local planning restrictions, lack of public investment, skills shortages and increasing cost of raw materials, which puts a brake on house building.

Safe As Houses

However, during times of economic uncertainty, housing has always provided a safer investment, and this is why property tends to buck the trend and outperform the stock markets and money markets. Residential property also provides a healthy income stream with some excellent returns on investment, far higher than can be achieved with blue chip shares. In addition to this, people do not trade homes on a whim – the stock markets may be in turmoil, with record numbers of trades being agreed today, but selling a property is a longer process, and this helps to protect the property market from panic trading.

Infrastructure Investments Will Drive Growth

The government’s major transport infrastructure upgrades, such as Crossrail, will continue to drive demand in new property hotspots around London, especially in Essex – a quick look at estate agents in Brentwood reveals that prices are already increasing in anticipation of the arrival of Crossrail. The northern powerhouse continues to promise growth, which will see increased demand in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and Newcastle.

Property Is A Long-Term Investment

Property is almost always a long-term investment. Although some people do enter the buy-to-let market with interest only mortgages in the hope to make a quick profit after a few years, most investors are thinking about returns on investment over decades, not years. Combine this with the fact that the average net income on a property investment is six times the BoE base rate, and the property market looks more secure than ever.

Low To Zero Interest Rates

In fact, there is already talk of interest rates being cut to zero percent this year. Many UK householders are straddled with debt, with large mortgages, credit card debts and personal loans. The government cannot afford to raise interest rates for fear of a surge in repossessions leading to another economic collapse on par with the 2008 credit crunch crisis. Mark Carney has already confirmed that interest rates will remain low.

Britain may be poised to leave Europe – the process may take two years and still needs to be approved by Parliament – but as far as the property market is concerned, investors look set to remain, and the property market actually looks stronger than ever before.
