5.0 out of 5 stars Good Barby, 17 Jan. 2015
I have had this Barby some time now and it has taken some use.
My husband swears by it and uses it at every opportunity.
It is ceramically coated so it should last some more time.
I like the vents which can be used to calm down the cooking.
At the moment it is a good price on amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Light Fitting, 17 Jan. 2015
This is a beautiful light fitting.
It was fairly easy to put up, but the bulbs were fiddly to insert.
Once up and lit it is lovely.
It is a talking point in our hallway.
It is very sturdy and looks expensive!!!!

Beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Sky Plus Box, 17 Jan. 2015
This is a really good sky+ box.
Samsung is a leading brand of electronics and this box is no exception.
It is easy to set up, although a telephone call to sky was needed for them to pair up the unit.
This only took a few minutes and away we were.
You have 160GB of recording time in HD.
The box is well made with lovely curved lines.

This sis a good mixer.
It has a very powerful motor and it mixes anything with great ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb DAB Radio, 17 Jan. 2015
This is a really good DAB radio.
It also has an alarm function should you require.
We have the radio set up in the kitchen.
All our favourite stations are preset.It allows 10 presets in all which I think is sufficient.
The radio delivers great sound.

We love it

4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric and eerie in parts with vivid descriptions, 16 Jan. 2015
'I could never have imagined all that would happen in those few short months and how, by the end of them, my life would have altered irrevocably and for ever'

These are the words of Alice, three years on from the long hot summer of 1933 as she recalls the events and people from that time who changed her world forever.

The story then started in 1932 as Alice is wondering when 'her life - her real life - would begin'. She has a good job but becomes smitten with a married man and when she falls pregnant her mother suggests she go to stay at the centuries old Fiercombe Manor, deep in a Gloucestershire valley, while she awaits the birth.

Glad to be away from London and her mother's chilly disapproval, she is almost enthusiastic about exploring the manor and tries to discover what became of the family who used to live there but no-one seems able to tell her.

Interspersed with Alice's story is Lady Elizabeth Stanton's story where she recalls the summer of 1898 when she too is awaiting the birth of her child. She lived in Stanton House which was nearby to Fiercombe Manor.

Alice's mind starts to play tricks on her as she has strange dreams of Elizabeth and thinks she sees glimpses in the shadows of the dusty corridors. These events were quite scary and chilling to read and there was a real sense of foreboding as Alice gradually becomes obsessed with Elizabeth and her family and the mystery of their disappearance.

The old manor house itself has staircases that are out of bounds, locked rooms, clocks and watches don't work and there are several out buildings which have been long since demolished but no-one knows why. The descriptions of the house and grounds are wonderfully eerie and all add to the atmosphere that builds throughout as the tale unwinds.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was full of wonderfully drawn characters such as Ruck, the groundsman, still there after four decades, who sees much but says little. A well-told story that had me hooked from the beginning.
