4.0 out of 5 stars Okay..., 16 Dec 2014

These are quite large but I have managed to swallow them !. I have not noticed any health benefits thus far. They were offered at a good price, and sent quickly too so I'm not complaining.


Thunderbirds - Deluxe Thunderbird 2

5.0 out of 5 stars F A B !, 16 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this for my grandson' s birthday - he has been very keen on Thunderbirds since seeing the Bill Paxton film. He was fascinated that me - his Nanna - knew about Thunderbirds despite not having seen that film ANDwho used to watch the puppet series years ago !. I have since bought him the original tv series on dvd, Tracy Island and other vehicles, which he loves. This was a larger version of T2, which he had seen on Amazon and he was VERY pleased to receive it .


The Field of Redemore: Battle of Bosworth, 1485
The Field of Redemore: Battle of Bosworth, 1485
by Peter J. Foss
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book !., 16 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very informative second edition booklet which re - assessed the site of The Battle of Bosworth - and subsequently proved to be correct . This book is fascinating, and is jam packed with information and enhances knowledge about our most unkindly treated and maligned monarch - King Richard III. Recommended.

FAIR TRADE COTTON HAIR BANDS ELASTICATED BANDANA HEADBAND ACCESORIES - 5 PACK (B)
Offered by Native by Nature
Price: £9.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A small fit !, 16 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good price, not the greatest quality really which varies with each of the " hairbands " , and small !. I don't have a big head, but these cannot fit my head if out on in the usual manner. Ladies will know the procedure - down over the head and around the neck like a scarf, the front then being pulled up over the face and into place on the top of the head - they are even a tight fit for my 6 year old grand - daughter !.


Richard III and York
Richard III and York
by Dorothy Mitchell
Edition: Unknown Binding

5.0 out of 5 stars Great booklet detailing ACTUAL connections with King Richard III !!!, 16 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Richard III and York
As a staunch Richard III follower, I have seen this mentioned several times so decided to get my own copy. It was written in the belief - shared by me and gleaned from the books I'd read about him - that Richard's bones had been thrown into the river Soar at the time of the Dissolution. This informative booklet is 30 pages long including the Introduction, details of Richard's friends and associates and Acknowledgements, and shows Richard's connection to the North - where he served as Governor for some 12 years. He had an affinity with the North and Yorkshire particularly and I, like many others, believe Richard himself would have expected to be buried in the North, or ( being King ) in London. The Leicester Connection booklet ( only 14 pages ) covers the famous dig, and recovery of Richard's remains, and gives the dates of Richard's 4 known visits in 1483 and 1484, to which of course must be added his departure in August 1485 for the Battle of Bosworth - not much of a " link " or " connection " there - apart from being taken there after being killed !. On the final page, concerning the exhumation and licence and re-interment in Leicester Cathedral, it reads " After lengthy discussions between the University, Leicester City Council and Leicester Cathedral it was agreed that best archaeological practice, the suitability of the cathedral , and Kind Richard's association with Leicester in both life and death all favoured his re-interment in the city ". NO mention of , or consultation with, those who INSTIGATED and mostly FUNDED the dig, and actually who DIRECTED the excavation as to WHERE RICHARD WAS MOST LIKELY TO BE - left to the Uni Richard would NOT have been found !. To many in Leicester King Richard III equals money, tourism and personal fame, and there has been, and continues to be , NO consideration given to the man he was, his life or beliefs or what he might have wanted - which wouldn't be Leicester as a final resting place !. The events leading up to the re- interment ceremony of 26th March 2015 are disrespectful, tacky and show NO respect, honour or dignity to a pious man who was once an anointed King of England -it is an utter travesty of a fitting ceremony.


China Glaze Platinum Silver Nail Polish 14ml
China Glaze Platinum Silver Nail Polish 14ml
Price: £6.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Platinum polish for my Platinum ( = precious ) daughter., 16 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for part of my daughter's birthday present, and it proved to be the exact shade she'd found hard to get !. China Glaze is a good brand ( & apparently used by lots of professionals ) without nasty ingredients such as formaldehyde. Not the cheapest of brands but apparently worth the extra money.

This review is from: THUNDERBIRDS KALEIDOSCOPE (Toy)
An unusual item, which is why I bought it in the first place. However - the T2 is tiny inside the patterns , and easily missed. Never mind, I love kaleidoscopes anyway, and this is such a novelty.


(Toyrific) Snuggles Deluxe Doll Set Pink/Blue (Age 3+)
(Toyrific) Snuggles Deluxe Doll Set Pink/Blue (Age 3+)

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap stuff, made in China but loved by a 2 year old !, 27 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this for a delightful almost 2 year old who is mad about " babies ", and mainly for the soft carry cot, as she struggles to carry the metal type which are heavy and cumbersome. On receiving it I could see the whole thing was of quite poor quality, and I had decided to return it. Unfortunately, the little one visited one day and with the instincts of a sniffer dog, managed to find the " baby ", and spent the whole visit walking round with it snuggled in her arms !. We had to detach the baby from the box as it had been fixed with those horrible plastic " tags " - bad enough but one was through the back of the HEAD, and the had was fixed TO the front of the head. They had to be simply cut off & the plastic allowed to fall inside the doll's head - but they did leave little stubs, which were quite sharp so then had to be forced through to be fully inside the head by hitting them!. WHY would the manufacturers choose to do that for what is obviously a CHILD'S toy ?. The clothes were not sewn together properly and the carry cot bottom sags from the weight of the " baby " and could have done with having some kind of board or padding in place for support.

Mason Cash Cane Cat Saucer Bowl Dish 5"

Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice, solid bowl., 13 Nov 2014
A nice weight bowl from the well known Mason Cash brand - although I think they no longer produce only in this country, which is regrettable. I use this for my cat's water and it works well for that purpose. Offered at good price, so well pleased.
