4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but heavy!, 16 Nov. 2015

Beautifully well made kettle although heavy to lift if you are perhaps older or health issues with hand/wrist. Definitely worth extra money as last cheaper brand kettle didn't last 5 minutes! Definitely reccomend.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing....not a family guide to Edinburgh, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really disappointing book. Brought for a 5 day trip with hubby and 11 yr old daughter and found the book was really more aimed I felt for people travelling with no children! Lots info on bars and resturants but not really huge amounts re activities or ideas for family activities.

Decided to buy the Edinburgh guide by Marco Polo which was great and ticked all the boxes for our needs including a great map too.

5.0 out of 5 stars great value guide, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Off to Edinburgh for a 5 days break with hubby and 11 yr old daughter and I orignally brought the Lonely Planet guide but when we received it we found it more aimed at the younger singletons/couples as had alot about clubs/bars/resturants.

I then purchased this book which has far more information on sight seeing and info for families etc including activities for rainy days etc. Also has good info on eating places too but most importantly it has a great map at the back of the book with lots of sights marked on it.

It is also very good for the foreign tourist from abroad too as has couple pages about weather, currency some do's and donts too.

Loved the film!! Saw it at the cinema and haven't laughed like that for ages. It is a chick flick and not normally my style but it was great easy veiwing entertainment. The reviewers of 1 to 3 stars need to lighten up!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unsure, 26 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having done a degree in Counselling I was interested to receive this book and to read it from a professional and personal perspective.

Having read the book I am unsure though how well a client with no therapy experience will be able to use this unless aided by a counsellor. It has alot of counselling terms which for some may be confusing and a client may end up becoming bogged down and left feeling confused.

If I was someone with no counselling experience I feel for the money I would personally look at another book as I feel this book is more what a counselling student would find on their reading list with the associated price tag. If I were a counselling student though I would say a interesting read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 26 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like previous reviews I too was disappointed with the quality and thickness of this annual but seeing I have brought a Rupert Annual each year for my daughter since she was born I feel I have to keep it for her collection. Definatley far better annuals out there than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellant hairdryer, 26 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellant hairdryer, quite compact when folded down. Not too noisey only moan and why didnt get 5 Stars is that the lead could do with being a bit longer for those occasions when the plug socket not right by a mirror but I guess the lead is just standard length so not really that bad!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brillant book!, 20 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just purchased book based on reviews on Amazon and have been delighted by it. Not only is it excellant value the tutor who has been helping my 9 year old daughter was very impressed with it too. Ideal as a basic starter book in helping you assist your child with learning in the home and at school.

Another bonus for me was that it was written by a English mother who is also a teacher. She shows a great understanding as a mother of how it feels to live with a dyslexia child and the frustrations that at times come with it.

My only wish was that the author had perhaps written about how she shared the diagonosis with her child etc but for me the book still earns 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brillant, 20 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this book for my 9 year old daughter based on someones review and it didn't disapoint. It was just at the right introduction level for a 8-10 yr old for boys or girls as it talks about both sexes. It covers a variety of topics - where babies come from, puberty (girls and boys), basic understanding sex although not going into too much detail etc without going too technical but uses alot comman words and nicknames used by children of that age. Its well presented book with cartoon style pictures in places. would definatly reccomend this book against lots of the other girl books available and have also purchased for a later date book called lets talk about sex which appears as well done as this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Love the shredder and price but the blades scare me!!!, 8 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered Saturday afternoon and received Monday by 10pm was really impressed with delivery speed and communication. Item was well packaged etc. On getting it out of the box and putting the shredder together i was shocked that the baldes for cutting the paper up, how on show they were and that there was no guard or they were sunk in slightly from the plastic lid. Although not reachable when the lid is on the bin part of the shredder I would urge anyone who was checking if there was a blockage or emptying the bin to make sure the power was off at the wall as you could easyily have a nasty accident. Perhaps being to health and safety but I certainly wont be leaving mine switched near my child just in case!
