This review is from: Caraselle 9 x Plastic Can Lids
These can caps are made of strong plastic and fit perfectly on 400g sized tins. I bought them to cover dog food tins and they work a treat. Really pleased to find them at such a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pyrex Classic Range - Large Roaster, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm very satisfied with the quality of the Pyrex Classic Range. I'm just getting round to throwing out my old large Pyrex roasting tin - it's had plenty of use and lasted about five years. I can still use it, but the non-stick coating has just about worn off.

I like the size and depth of this tin, it holds plenty and the contents can be turned/moved around easily without spilling stuff over the edge. It's also got a good sized rim at each end which is easy to grasp and remove from the oven.

I find the quality is good, it doesn't feel flimsy, and my old large Pyrex roasting tin has never gone out of shape. The non-stick coating lasts a few years before it starts to wear off and it remains easy to clean for quite a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walking in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walking in the Wolds (Paperback)
This colourful walking guide explores the scenic countryside in the Lincolnshire Wolds. The walks range between 3 and 6 miles in length and most of them are easily accomplished in 2 - 3 hours. The locations stretch between the far north of the county (South Ferriby) and down to the point where the Wolds fall away to Fens.
All in all, this guide is easy to follow, the walks are interesting, and it's always a pleasure to visit the Wolds area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and decent size, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a decent sized toiletry bag and it has enough compartments to keep things organised. The main section has ample room for shampoo bottles etc and the inner slip pockets and side pocket are great for smaller items and keeping things separate. The trademark monkey keyring is easy to remove, if, like me, you find it gets in the way.
All in all, this bag has plenty of room for all of my toiletries and it's really good quality. I chose the Expresso Brown colour, so it's suitable for all the family to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfy and Compact, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this travel pillow for my son to use on a long-haul coach trip - it was ideal for an overnight journey. We wanted something smallish and easy to store in a rucksack - but would still provide the comfort of a normal pillow.
The pillow is soft, comfortable and a good quality item. When it is placed in the right position, the head and neck feels relaxed and supported. The inner pillow is not washable, although it's easily removed via a zipped compartment and then the fleecy outer covering can be popped in the washer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dark and ghostly prequel to the Shades of London series, 4 Mar. 2014
This is a prequel to the Shades of London series and tells the back-story of Shades leader, Stephen Dene. Fans of the Shades series will enjoy this book, although it doesn't matter if you haven't come across the series before, because this is a good little story in its own right. It's an exclusive story published for World Book Day.
A tragic family event sends Stephen's life on a downward spiral - but fortunately, someone manages to intervene before it's too late. The help Stephen receives leads him to London, where his life goes down a new and mysterious path.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic British Drama - review of the film, 23 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Summer [DVD] (DVD)
I was searching for something to watch on TV the other night and came across this film on Sky Store special offers. What a find! I was also pleased to realise, when I was about half way through the film, that I recognised where it is set. Most of the film is set in Bolsover, Derbyshire, and there are some excellent scenes of what used to be the pit slag heaps and the surrounding countryside.
The story follows childhood pals, Shaun and Daz and the repercussions of one summer, 12 years earlier. In the present day, Shaun(Carlyle) is a carer for his sick, alcoholic best friend, Daz. The story reflects back in flashbacks to tell the story of their troubled youth and leads up to one event that had a massive impact on their future.
The storyline is realistically grim, but there's gritty humour too. The setting is superb and so's the cast, particularly Robert Carlyle. Quite often a low-key film turns out to be one of the best and this is one of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Leper House, 22 Feb. 2014

Set on the Suffolk coastline, The Leper House is an intriguing ghost story. The atmospheric setting and writing style are spot on.
All in all, this is a good read. It's one of those stories that leaves you pondering about it.


Lost Lincolnshire Country Houses Volume 2 (two, ii)
Lost Lincolnshire Country Houses Volume 2 (two, ii)
by Terrance & PACEY, Robert LEACH
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Lincolnshire history, 21 Feb. 2014
This interesting book is full of photographs/illustrations and historical information on various country houses in Lincolnshire.
This particular volume is mainly devoted to those houses that belonged to the Anderson, Cracroft-Amcotts and the Grantham families, and includes Scremby Hall, St Katherine's Hall (Lincoln), Dunholme Manor, Goltho Hall, Manby Hall (Broughton), Lea Hall, Kettlethorpe Hall, Somerby near Brigg, Hackthorn Old Hall and West Willoughby.
I found this to be an intriguing book. I enjoyed looking at the photographs of historical houses that used to exist in Lincolnshire - it's also interesting reading about the families that were linked with them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light entertainment, 6 Feb. 2014
Going on what other reviewers are saying about this book, readers may be disappointed, mainly because these stories have been published before in other short story compilations.
I read Jeffrey Archer's prison diaries a long time ago and was interested to see what his short stories were like.
I thought these stories were okay. What you get is four short stories that end with a good twist and it takes about 45 minutes to read the whole book.
