4.0 out of 5 stars falling short by 4 centimetres..., 20 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
nice quality memory foam, and delivered promptly - but, be warned, it measures 72cm X 60cm, NOT 76cm X 60cm, as the spec. states.

2.0 out of 5 stars SO BORING!, 26 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i read the book years ago, and liked it - but this dramatisation was so, so boring - and mannered and slow and really didn't do justice to the book, despite having lovely Bill Nighy.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely slippers, 26 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
arrived today - and i've had them on ever since! the fit is a little snug, but i'm sure they'll stretch: there's no tight stitching in uncomfortable places. really warm! i do wish they wouldn't put their *stupid* little labels right inside the shoe, where they can't be read - so what's the point?!! - but they rub uncomfortably against the side of the foot. however, did a labelectomy and snipped them out - by touch. the sole is slightly unyielding (i'm used to the 'give' of trainers) but ok for indoors: i wouldn't care to go walking in them, though - not that they're designed for that. good insulation against the cold stone floors we have here, and all in all a really nice, and good looking, slipper.


Weleda Sage Deodorant 30ml
Weleda Sage Deodorant 30ml
Price: £5.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff., 4 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely - I bought this sage deodorant instead of my usual citrus one, as the last Weleda citrus deodorant I bought smelt perfectly awful (and is now doing time as a toilet blaster). This has a delicate sagey scent - which disappears completely in a short time, leaving one deodorised and comfortable. Recommended.


15 Litre Plastic Swing Bin Bright White - Made in UK
15 Litre Plastic Swing Bin Bright White - Made in UK
Offered by east2eden
Price: £4.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Much nicer than it looks in the picture., 4 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Surprisingly sturdily made, and the lid fits well. Since I bought it as a sump hole liner, the lid doesn't matter - but I thought you'd like to know! It's a very good deal. And it arrived very well packaged, swathed in masses of bubble wrap.

Price: £6.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff., 4 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gorgeous: it has a very delicate citrus smell, and it's gentle. Not full of nasties, and it lasts for ages. Good for ageing hair, as well.

Whitefurze Plastic 10ltr Swing Bin and Lid Black
Offered by deals-direct
Price: £5.71

2.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish bin..., 4 Sep 2014
Flimsy, badly made - and the lid wouldn't fit properly: it kept falling off, or sliding down at an angle. I'd put it in the bin, if I had a bin.

2.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: THIS ONE BITES!, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this less than a year ago, and up till last week reckoned it was the best water flosser i'd come across. not any more. the other day, while i was flossing on 'jet', the nozzle shot off and hit me painfully in the gum. thinking i'd not seated it firmly enough in the handle, i tried again, and it whacked me in the gum - again. so i changed to a new nozzle, which held - just about; but i now notice that when it's working, the nozzle is straining upwards to release itself from the handle, which makes me nervous: i don't want the nozzle ending up down my throat!
i would have given it five stars before; i've knocked that down to two. Manufacturers - take note! redesign the mechanism which holds the nozzle in place! or you're going to have some lawsuits on your hands.

UPDATE and now - only a few weeks later, in mid-swoosh it suddenly stops working altogether. i think it's the nozzle (a new one) which has become blocked, but i'm not sure. i have to fork out nearly twelve quid for new nozzles, on the offchance that it's the nozzle and not the irrigator that's at fault. *cross*

Flood
Flood
by Richard Doyle
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.75

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flood (Paperback)
brilliantly researched, clearly and almost laconically written and, though fiction, reads all too plausibly as something that *could* happen if there was a major storm down the East coast of the UK. human error, greed and short-sightedness result in an all-consuming disaster, when the Thames barrier is breached, and - horrifically - the huge oil refineries and giant gas storage facilities near London catastrophically catch fire, and a foot-thick skin of oil on the swollen river blazes out of control for miles. the hubris of storing highly dangerous substances on an insanely enormous scale results in a terrifying - and deserved - nemesis.
the research that went into this book is impressive; the fact that the writer doesn't give into mere sensationalism, even more so. if you want to think twice about ever going to London again... read it!

3.0 out of 5 stars MISLEADING PHOTO: PRODUCT NOT ORGANIC, 15 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Be aware - despite the photo, this product is NOT organic! When you get it, you see that the green 'organic' label has been replaced by a similar-sized green label saying '100% Certified Natural Care' - a phrase which means precisely nothing.
I can't be bothered to send it back, because the lotion itself seems fine - maybe a bit oily, but that's acceptable. But the retailer shouldn't be posting a misleading photo.
