Hozelock Multi Spray Pro Gun
Hozelock Multi Spray Pro Gun
Price: £21.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the best and buy once, 24 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the best you can buy. Bought this couple of years ago now, and it's still going strong. There isn't much substitute for the metal chassis construction that this has.

Bought on Amazon for less than the high street charges for the all plastic version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Won't keep you mouse free, 24 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't stop mice completely. Hard to say how much it deters them (if at all) as with it on I still got mice caught in traditional traps (with this sonic deterrent just inches away)

2.0 out of 5 stars Pay a bit more and go for something better, 24 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't work adequately. If you go as far as to buy a comb, you want to ensure that it's doing it's job to the max - and this unfortunately doesn't. The comb teeth could do with being longer.

Bought a different brand - which I have reviewed separately, and think is much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another inconvenient truth, 24 Oct. 2014

Lovin it. Got pulled obviously because it tells the inconvenient truth, and the right-on left-wing can't handle that. As soon as I knew they didn't like it I had to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and quiet for a good price., 1 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fan is nice and quiet. I took a chance and bought 2 based on the reviews, and they didn't disappoint.

Decent design, and you don't mind them coming on with the lights (even if you are not taking a shower or creating steam in any way) because they are not noisy like other fans can be. **Update 16th Nov 2014** - Mine are wired so that they are controlled by the light switch, but I don't believe they have to be wired this way. they can be set to go purely on their own - unless someone knows different?

Only cost slightly more than the non-quiet version, and so many people were complaining about the noise on the standard version, It would have been madness to have ignored the reviews on those ones.

Both have been set to approximately a 10 minutes run-on. If this happened not to be enough (if you had a particularly hot shower/bath and created a lot of steam) then just turn the fan back on and off again, and it would give you the run-on time all over again.

Very happy with both of them.


Leifheit Long Handled Covered Dust Pan and Brush Set
Leifheit Long Handled Covered Dust Pan and Brush Set
Price: £19.75

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy around the house, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a quick and handy way to sweep, without continually bending down with a dustpan and brush, or getting out the vacuum cleaner.

The pan goes upright automatically when being stored, and the brush handle clips onto the pan handle, so storage is compact and neat.

The only thing you need to take care on is when you clip the brush in, make sure the brush doesn't get splayed out - ie try to keep it in the confines of where it is supposed to be (imagine pushing a paintbrush bristle-first towards a tube not much wider than it ensuring that it all went it) The bristles could get permanently bent otherwise.

Very handy thing to have though.


Fallen Fruits LH2 Beetle Boot Jack - Black
Fallen Fruits LH2 Beetle Boot Jack - Black
Price: £7.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good and works well, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Certainly one of the better looking boot jacks you can buy. This has an antique design.

The one flaw, is that being metal, it was marking/scraping against the back of the wellington boots it was bought to remove. It could also easily do this on leather boots.

To get round this, we wound some black electrical insulating tape carefully around the antennae.

Being black it doesn't notice at all, and perfectly does the job of 'softening' the front of the boot jack.

If it already came with something similar, this would get 5 stars.


Decopatch Medium Mache Bulldog MA001O, Brown
Decopatch Medium Mache Bulldog MA001O, Brown
Price: £25.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as expected. Happy, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my wife who wanted a medium sized papier mache bulldog, and that is exactly what this is!

Slight confusion caused by the fact that they are advertised/shown what they could look like - after being decorated. You can decorate how you want to of course, but they come in light brown paper finish & looking like a bulldog with a wrinkly face, as opposed to what might resemble something like a cow after they have been covered in paper patches....

We want ours to actually remain looking like a bulldog!

Feels decently made, and we are happy with purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wife loves them, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Viking Womens RUBY Boots (Shoes)
Bought for my wife. She especially likes the lace-up adjustment on the back.

Just as good as Hunters, but Hunters are made in China these days, and Viking are not.

Great colour. Very pleased with these.

1.0 out of 5 stars Case is NOT leather - It's an overpriced plastic case!!!, 15 Nov. 2013
I can't stress this enough. The case is NOT leather.

The picture of the case looked good, and it was stated as 'genuine' leather.

What arrived were cases (I ordered 2 at the same time) which didn't look as good as the pictures. The case even came with a little leather tag the size of a thumb. Because I had ordered a leather case, I initially assumed that is what I had.

Upon closer inspection, it turned out not be leather at all. I even took it to the leather stall in town, and they laughed about it. In hindsight, there are a quite a number of people saying the same thing - ie it's NOT leather. I wish I had read the reviews beforehand.

The problem is that we are in the minority, and most people aren't noticing, and that is why this company is getting away with breaking the law.

Just because they state it is leather, and it comes with a cute little leather tag, doesn't mean it is leather.

Check your case VERY carefully, and take it to a leather seller like I did.

In the meantime, I have contacted Surrey & West Sussex Trading Standards (the company has addresses in each county) and I fully intend to get recourse.

Watch this space, and only buy if you don't mind paying way over the odds for a plastic case (PU leather-lookalike) being dishonestly sold as leather.
