5.0 out of 5 stars A good compromise school skirt!, 9 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good-quality skirt which meets the school's non-stretch policy. Very fussy daughter says it's 'fine' - praise indeed after scores of others turned down. Of course, she still rolls it up at the waistband as soon as she leaves the house...

1.0 out of 5 stars A huge disappointment, 22 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Twelve Lessons (Kindle Edition)
I bought the book purely based on reviews. On reading the feedback I was really looking forward to a book that introduced life lessons in a creative and sensitive way. I can understand that the author wrote the book in order to present her own teachings through a story.
I was HUGELY disappointed with the book. From the start, the main character is almost caricature in her failings. Her husband, the anti-hero, is even more so, to the point that one cannot understand how anyone could possibly love or want to be with him in the first place. It's just not real.
From the inevitable collapse of marriage and life, the main character embarks on such a sudden and extreme change of outlook and luck that the story becomes ridiculous. She decides what she wants is a small plain room with nothing in it, so she envisages that and - hey presto! She's in a hostel. JUST what she wanted! Then she then meets up with someone perfect, kind and rich, and a happy ever after.
This does not give any message of empowerment to women. What a shame.

The only GBOR that comes up after a UK search - and it's Spanish? specifically searched for English book, so I don't understand how this came through the search? A shame.

...which is ok if that's what you wanted (I didn't). The price of postage made it too expensive to return

1.0 out of 5 stars Twice they sent the wrong, inferior product!, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Team Bands, Blue (Misc.)
Ordered specifically for PLASTIC bands, more expensive than the fabric ribbon also on sale. First order arrived, fabric ribbon! Tried to email - no option. Tried to phone - not open. Arranged a return and reordered the PLASTIC bands, hoping it had been a mistake. More fabric ribbon arrived. Bu this time it was too late to return and I had to make do with the dreadful, fraying ribbon that I will not be able to reuse. And I had to pay twice the price than if I had ordered ribbon in the first place. Disgraceful lack of contact options.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly-written, perfectly aimed at all children aged 7-11, 13 May 2014

This review is from: Girls Are Best (Paperback)
My eldest daughter got this in her Christmas stocking and, even as a reluctant reader, was completely absorbed due to the engaging content, writing and text structure. Second daughter also read with enthusiasm and now the book has been constantly on loan to both boys and girls in good measure in my class of 10 year olds for the last two years.
The book should not really be entitled Girls are Best, as that message is clearly not Sandi's aim. The book simply points out a) the accomplishments of women throughout history (and how some have been hidden in the retelling of the past), and b) the inequalities that existed in the past and (sadly) today. It does not say that women are better than men, but allows the reader to challenge that women are not inferior to men. Surely everyone wants that for their child?
I think it is a beautiful book for its simplicity and honesty, and of course its child-friendly writing.
Mr Wright need not panic, this book will not turn any child into a man-hater. But it may well begin to equip them for having to deal with less informed individuals who try to hold on to primitive views in order to maintain their own delusions of superiority based on only on their gender.

Fast delivery. The swats are quite flimsy and split after a while, but considering the price they are still good value for money.

This review is from: 4 x Water Bombs (Toy)
I bought these as a back up for the cheaper pack of 500 bombs. They were used in a fundraiser and were very effective - the cheaper ones were useless. Fast delivery too.
