Now That I've Found You
Now That I've Found You
by Ciara Geraghty
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Now That I Have Found You. - Ciara Geraghty, 31 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Vinnie and Ellen strike up an unusual friendship, I say unusual in the way that they themselves do not seem to see what is happening between them. With it being like this with them the relationship/friendship is so sincere and what makes this read all the more a nice comfort read.

I think it is on the same wavelengths of JoJo Moyes which is a good as I do enjoy her reads. This author well one I would look at twice as I did enjoy this read.

Family relationships, some tinged with a little sadnes but also some hope and love thrown in for good measure.

Yes, a pleasant read that is not too sickly nice or sweet but just enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kuuk Silicone Oven Gloves - Flexible and Lined along with Free Gift, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are just great.

They are not hard and bulky like the blue ones I usually use when taking hot trays and dishes out of the oven and Aga.

Easy to move your hands and grip items that are hot as with them being flexible they are so much easier to use and store both sit over edge of Aga on hanging hook so easy to grab when needed. I suffer with OA and these gloves are a real treat to use with them being so flexible and not hard and bulky.

Plus with them having a lining inside your hands do not feel freezing cold during the winter months when using them.

One size fits all and myself and husband have both used these and both agree much better than the other old blue pair we have at present. Funnily enough was looking at alternatives to our old blue ones to replace them when got offered the chance to try these out in return for an honest review so could have not timed it better for me.

Also included is a silicone mat or what I use it for is opening tight or new jars really easily opening them with this. If you are a sufferer of OA this little gadget will come in really useful. Did have a purple one of these silicone mats that has seen better days, so this grey one has replaced it now.

The look of them is a trendy one and being grey unisex. Postage wise the delivery was quick and well packed.

Time will tell how these fair with lots of use, will get used everyday in our household so will update at a later stage.


FSL Gunblock Luxury Ear Defenders / Earmuffs For Shooting and Hunting (Green)

3.0 out of 5 stars FSL Gunblock Ear Defenders - Tight Fitting Headband, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These earmuffs look quite good and arrived well boxed and delivery was quick.

The one thing I will say about these is that they are quite a tight fit, actually a too tight fit even for myself with a smallish sized head. Tried to get them onto Boston Terrier puppy and no way would they fit. (No cruelty to animals though he just wanted to get to them it was either try them or eat them, so went with try them). Therefore they are not going to fit son and be comfortable for him to wear.

The head band at the top is just too small in length, even though the muffs do adjust slightly by turning and what to get them to go lower. The band though does really determine how far it will go and that is not that much. Also when adjusted they then flip almost back immediately to their normal position. Pretty sure any gun user would not want to spend more time adjusting their ear defenders than actual shooting.

If these were tweaked a little just by making the headband slightly longer then they would give a comfortable fit for most people, but as they at just a few seconds and pain. If not wanting to hear gun shots would be pretty sure that you would not want pinched red ears either.

A good idea if only they fitted better and came with instructions. Shame really as I got these thinking that they would be ideal for son who he goes shooting with his dad.

Good quality but design wise make the headband longer to fit most heads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staedtler Colouring Pencils - Great for Kids or Adults - Vast Array of Colours, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good set of 24 mixed coloured pencils (full sized not mini length ones).

I bought a set for son for his homework projects but was so pleased with the quality and the fact that they did not break every five minutes. Tnat I then bought myself a set for doing Mindfullness adult colouring book.
A huge array of colours, so every colour is catered for be it muted or brights.
Both times bought as add ons as such a good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Euphoria Home - Trendy Cushion Cover - -Good Quality and Design, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really please with both the quality and design of this cushion cover, so much so that am looking at some others in the range.

Yes, delivery from China does take a few weeks (estimated 4) but actually came before that.

The cushion cover is almost like a jute material and the pink is a nice cerise pink colouring. Actually the pink on this one matches the pink colour on the other bird cushions in the same range. Know that as I have another pink one but with the trellis design on it but same bird.

Zip quality good and just really pleased with a cushion cover that actually looks more money than it actually was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staedtler Double Ended Felt Tips Great for Schoolwork, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for son for using at school and doing homework with.

Good vale for money I thought and with them being double ended saves on having twice the amount of pens in his pencil case.
They seem to colour well and good for writing with, son seems happy with them and a nice range of colours in the pack.

Bought these on a good offer as a add on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artbox Craft Glue Great for Paper and Thin Card Crafts, 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inexpensive glue that is fine for kids doing paper craft work.

Son was doing a craft project at school (well homework project) that involved lots of sticking of paper. Saw this at such a low price when ordering some other items as an add on and bought it for him.

It does the job fine and for the price for two, well even if the second bottle goes hard before being all used up no worries as cheap enough.

Fine for paper and thin card but not thinking it strong enough for heavier card. If needing something for heavy card or material to stick together look at another but just paper and thin card fine.

Red Dingo Circadelic Patterned Dog Lead, S, 12 mm x 1.2 m, Medium blue

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Dingo Circadelic Dog Lead - Nero Likes It, 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Super Red Dingo dog lead.

What I love about the Red Dingo range of leads is that they are so easy to clip on and off even if suffering with OA in hands they make life a doddle when it comes to fastening and unfastening the lead. The clip is a really nice shape and does not release until pressed in to do so.

A nice length and a bright cheerful colour and pattern on this one.

Do have a couple of harnesses in the same range and make life so much easier when walking time. Just make sure if buying a small lead that it will fit the medium collar or medium harness as the rings are quite a bit bigger on the medium ones. (This one does and is being used on a medium harness and medium collar). Know this has have had small and medium in a couple of things and sometimes the size does differ ever so slightly on the various designs.

The skull and crossbones harness for example in the same size is very much the exact size it says it is but the brown blue spotted one supposed to be the same a medium is quite a bit smaller than should be and thinner. I suppose it all depends when they were made but not all exactly the same size.

Great if on offer at a discount price full price for this a little bit expensive as not a thick wide lead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kuuk Shatterproof Wine Glass - Great for Picnics, 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good idea for those summer trips when a glass or two of wine is required.

The glass I was really impressed with. It comes complete with bag for storing it in when not in use. Really handy for keeping in back of vehicle for when on day trips out etc. A lot better than using plastic wine glasses or paper cups.

It slots nicely into place with the magnetic bits and can be put into dishwasher on top rack.

Such a simple idea but one that works a glass that you can take out but not worry about breaking, great if young children or animals about.
Plus it takes up such little room with the stem part of it going inside the bowl part. Yes picnic time can be proper glasses and no more plastic pretend ones thanks to this.

I will be looking for more over the next few months as will be using them come the summer.

Pretty quickly dispatched and comes in its own box inside a Jiffy bag.

1.0 out of 5 stars Osmo Curl Fluid - Where are the Curls and Shine ?, 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite what I was hoping for.

No shine added to hair at all and for curl definition, well not that good a job either.

I have used this about five times now thinking maybe it was how I was using it. Maybe too much or not enough but each time not left with curls or any body from it at all. Just a crunchy stuff feeling almost.

For the price not happy with results, usually use Fudge Screwed which leaves my hair both curly and not as scrunchy crunchy feel as this product. Also when this product comes out it is messy like a cream that goes everywhere.
Not one I will be buying again.
