5.0 out of 5 stars Super Cordless Vac, 26 Mar. 2015
What a superb vacuum cleaner this is.

Lightweight, maneuverable and best of all cordless.

It comes with two batteries, so you need not run out of power.
It works fine on all our floors. We have carpets, laminates and in the kitchen a lino type flooring.
It vacuums them all equally as good.
It is also lightweight when vacuuming the stairs.

Emptying is a breeze, with just a clip and lift off.

But the piece de resistance is it is CORDLESS!!!!!!!

Superb and great price at £200.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Pram, 25 Mar. 2015
This is a fantastic pram.

It can be used right from bringing baby home.

It is also a carrycot, a pushchair and a baby car seat.
Everything you need.

I bought this for a very dear friend and she loves it.
It is very sturdy and I am sure it will last the course.

Brilliant

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Early to tell, 25 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It is too early to tell if this product does what is claimed. I will follow up in eight or nine weeks with a definitive yeah or nah.

The product comes in a very dinky tube.
The size of the box which itself is small, dwarfs it.

On first impressions it feels nice when dabbed on under the eye. Silky not greasy. It rubs in very easily, doesn't sting. You have to be careful when it comes out of the pump as sometimes too much comes out and it is wasted.

If it works, and I have no reason to doubt, as this brand is top rated, then I will be delighted.
It should make me look younger and that is not a bad thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much packed into this clever novel, 25 Mar. 2015
This review is from: The Bitter Trade (Paperback)
Calumny Spinks, a 'long-limbed red-haired Frenchy gawk' is the narrator of this novel and we follow his journey, after a tragic incident, from a small town in Essex to the big city of London where he becomes involved in conspiracies, coffeehouses and silk weavers.

He has a gift for mimicry, is bright and quick-witted and the young ladies seem to love him! In trying to repay his father's debt he uses his wits and his smooth tongue but this all leads him into dangerous situations and dangerous men.

The sights and sounds of 17th century London are brought to life with vivid descriptions of the workshops, hawkers, tradesmen, chandlers at their craft and silk weaving. This is an England where people meted out their own kind of justice, without fear of retribution, where a man could kill another man with his sword and be thought a hero but to kill another man with a pistol he would be thought a murderer. "If thou fight with pistols and win, law will call thee murderer. But to kill a man in a swordfight is no crime in English law".

There is so much packed into this clever novel, with twists and turns, romance, double dealings, murders, fears of an impending war and friendships, but it also has a soft side, especially the relationship between Calumny and his father which changed throughout the story.

The author has obviously done his research into silk weaving, boats on the Thames and 17th century pistols. My only criticism would be that some of these descriptions were so long that I found my mind wandering reading them.

Overall, a really enjoyable fast-paced novel with memorable characters and a memorable storyline. Looking forward to the next chapter in the life of mister Calumny Spinks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational Hand Mixer, 25 Mar. 2015
This has to be one of the bargains of the year.

A branded 300w Hand mixer. For under a tenner. WOW!!!!

It comes with 2 beaters, 2 dough hooks and a balloon mixer.

With 5, yes, 5 different speeds this is superb.

Buy it now. I am sure stocks will run down and the price will rise.

Sensational

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Mirusia, 24 Mar. 2015
This is another stunning production from Andre Rieu.
This one features his protege Mirusia.
She sounds like a room full of nightingales.
She looks like an english rose...if only.
Her songs are gorgeous, and all accompanied by the JSO led by the great Andre.

This is a must buy for any fans of this music. Listen carefully to " Send in the Clowns ".
Beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Body Hair Trimmer, 23 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is fantastic, and every lady should invest in this Hair Trimmer.
I mean for fifteen quid, it is just piece of mind with no embarrassment. Ladies you know what I mean.
This is the size and shape of a mascara and will slip into your handbag without a second thought for use on the go.
It trimms those hairs away, The top lip!!!!!!!!!

One cautionary note.

DONT go near the bikini line with this......and then use on your nose hair or top lip.

Overall this is a really brilliant product, that will get used and used.
It comes with a battery that is easy to fit.
Ladies buy this and use it.
