I'm pleased with this collar - it fits my medium sized fox terrier very well.
The quality off the cotton is excellent - and the clasp is solid and secure. Once the collar has been set at the right adjustment, it stays in position and doesn't work loose. The metal D ring for lead attachment is also very solid.


The Day Before the Fire
The Day Before the Fire
by Miranda France
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

4.0 out of 5 stars The Day Before the Fire, 18 Aug. 2015
After a fire rips through Turney House, a stately home in London, Ros Freeman takes on some of the wallpaper restoration work. The job comes along at a time when Ros's personal life is in turmoil. With her marriage in limbo, Ros moves back to a childhood home. This is where Ros discovers that she is not able to move forward in life, until the past is put straight.
This is a steady read that focuses more on the characters and relationships than a fast-action plot. The story is well-written and Miranda France is good at describing the characters she writes about.
The restoration of a stately home, particularly the wallpaper restoration, is an interesting and unusual subject - and it's well-researched. The story was inspired by a National Trust property in Sussex that was gutted by fire in 1989.
Overall, a fairly slow read, but definitely worth sticking with - I enjoyed it.


Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash Detangling Hairbrush - Blue Lagoon
Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash Detangling Hairbrush - Blue Lagoon
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good brush - awkward design, 18 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros
Detangles wet hair
Very useful for brushing conditioner through wet hair
It doesn't hold water and become water-logged
Easy to store

Cons
It's a chunky design and not that easy to grip, and hold

Overall, the brush works fine on my medium length fine hair.
I find it a bit awkward to hold when I am applying conditioning treatments - and think it would be much easier to use if the design was altered slightly.

25 x Breathable / Perforated, Loaf / Rolls / Food / Bread Baking Bags - 30 x 40cm

4.0 out of 5 stars Bread bags, 17 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These bags are good quality, a decent size, re-useable - and can be used to store various bakery products. I have used them for storing home-baked bread, storing bread in the freezer and for storing bakery bread/bread rolls.
As stated, the bags are not supplied with clips, but Klippits do the job - and keep the contents fresh.

Fits in my Cross Apogee Titian Red Rollerball pen perfectly. Once the refill is in place, the pen writes smoothly, has good ink flow and doesn't smudge. Very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chalk paint, 13 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent quality paint. I bought a small pot to try it out - and I'm pleased with the results. I added a tiny amount of water to make it stretch a bit further. The colour is a tad paler than the colour shown - but the final result could depend on how many coats are applied.
Nice paint and I would purchase it again.


DK Eyewitness Pocket Map and Guide: London
DK Eyewitness Pocket Map and Guide: London
by DK
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting guide, 12 Aug. 2015
A useful guide that shows what London has to offer. Most of the sights covered in the book are in central London.
To make it easier to decide where to visit, the guide shows London area by area and highlights the most interesting places to visit in each area. Each section also includes a tiny bit of info on shopping, pubs and restaurants.
There is some practical information on the various methods of transport for getting around. I think river transport could have been mentioned in this section - it's limited, but there is lots to see on the river trips.
A neat fold-away map is attached to the back cover - this includes a fair amount of street names, but not all the small streets are named. I found a pocket map book to be more comprehensive and a much better reference guide, for getting around on foot.
I think this guide gives a good overview to London - and it's useful when planning a trip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 12 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very satisfied with this product. I have used it to eradicate small mould spots in the corners of the shower cubicle - and nipped it in the bud before the mould has become too difficult to remove.
For this product to be most effective, the trick is to blast the mould as soon as it appears. I can't comment on how effective it would be on a widespread and engrained area of mould and mildew.
It contains bleach, so it smells strong when spraying it in a confined area. Once I have sprayed it, I leave it for a short time, use a scourer to clear the area, then rinse off.

These are reasonable quality bags and just the job for posting lightweight items. I have used them for ebay sales - and I've had no problems with them. I would purchase this product again.
