Black Diamonds: The Rise and Fall of an English Dynasty
Black Diamonds: The Rise and Fall of an English Dynasty
Price: 6.64

5.0 out of 5 stars Black diamonds, or coal from Yorkshire, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant description of life and times perfectly captured. The house and gardens of Wentworth Woodhouse are open to the public and worth a visit but do read the book first.


De'Longhi Vento V550715 Electric Oil Filled Radiator - 1.5 Kilowatt
De'Longhi Vento V550715 Electric Oil Filled Radiator - 1.5 Kilowatt
Offered by Plumbing Supermarket
Price: 86.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Oil filled radiator, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So glad we bought this for our conservatory, even though it has central heating radiator. It provided an extra blast of heat when required, to get up to a toasty warmth, can be moved readily, yet tucks away when not needed. Not expensive to run, as we are OAPs and have to consider costs, which we did before purchasing.

Kindle Paperwhite, 6" High Resolution Display with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi [Previous Generation]

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle paperwhite, 31 Dec 2013

Brilliant. This is so light, can be carried easily, tucks into either a handbag or bag, re-charges easily. The in-built light make it very easy to read in the dark (for anyone who cannot sleep but doesn't want to wake their husband/partner by putting on the bedside light). Very simple to download books, some of which are free, or under 1.

Corby 7700 Black Ash Trouser Press
Price: 139.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Corby trouser press, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly, no one can afford to have a Jeeves these days (as if), so the invention of a trouser press saves hours at the ironing board with a muslin cloth. My husband has had these for years, replacing as they do wear out - but they are great. We always buy one with the hanger at the back, perfect for a shirt, or jacket, or even jumper discarded.


Lilac Vintage Style Flower Petal Swimming Hat
Lilac Vintage Style Flower Petal Swimming Hat

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage swimming hat, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this in white, a throw back to the 1950s and 1960s. A swimming hat is required in baths in Europe, hence this purchase; it folds flat, but is a little heavy. However, for glamour, it looks wonderful.


Jane Eyre

This review is from: Jane Eyre (Kindle Edition)
What is not to like about this book? It is the perfect, simple yet clever love story, with cruel orphanage scene, mad lunatics in the attic, conflagration and mis-understanding. I have loved this book for many, many years.


The Book of Household Management
The Book of Household Management

3.0 out of 5 stars Isabella Beeton's book of Household Management, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What is not said is that in kindle form you do not receive any illustrations - such a pity, as part of the charm of Mrs Beeton's book is that same thing. Fortunately I do possess this in hardback form, but would not recommend this as the colour plates are so charming.


Willingly to School: Memories of York College for Girls, 1919-24
Willingly to School: Memories of York College for Girls, 1919-24
by Janet Baker
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars York College for Girls, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought for my daughter, who went to York College in the 1980s, following on from the previous generation. The school has now closed, is now an Italian restaurant which has gone through a few owners, but the old school photographs and memorabilia are still there. The book is really only suitable for anyone interested either in the building, a beautiful Georgian house on Petergate in York, which backs onto York Minister, with some parts now occupied by flats, or by old girls.

Panasonic SD255 Breadmaker with Raisin/Nut Dispenser

5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic breakmaker, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this many years ago now, on the recommendation of my cousin. It will makes delicious bread, which I always do on the rapid 2 hour bake, a mix of brown and white together. The only problem has been with the dispenser, which has never worked successfully, but then it didn't for my cousin either! If you want to add anything, open the top and throw it in before the end of the cycle.

The Railway Children [DVD]
The Railway Children [DVD]
Dvd ~ Dinah Sheridan

5.0 out of 5 stars Railway Children dvd original, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Railway Children [DVD] (DVD)
The original film version, with Jenny Aguter, Dinah Sheridan. This was filmed where the story took place, on the Keighley and Worth Light Valley Railway - do take a trip on the same railway line, stop off at Oakworth station and view the wonderful Yorkshire countryside. The dvd is pretty good too, wonderful for children, a delightful, happy story with a wonderful, tear-jerking ending.
