Like Farmer, Like Son
Like Farmer, Like Son
by Adam Henson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting memoir, 20 July 2016
This review is from: Like Farmer, Like Son (Hardcover)
A down to earth read about a down to earth and hard-working guy.
This is an interesting, concise and often emotional account of Adam Henson’s life – from childhood to present day.
Adam talks about his family life, TV career and the ups and downs of daily life on a farm, and gives plenty of detail to keep the reader interested, but doesn’t bog the book down with pages and pages of uninteresting detail.
Adam’s father, Joe Henson, had a strong influence on Adam's direction in life - the bond they shared is very obvious in the book and touching to read about. In fact, Adam was working on this book when Joe Henson died, so the latter part of the book is very moving and full of emotion.
This book is a pleasure to read – I thoroughly enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat purse - love the Watermelon colour, 15 July 2016
A neat little purse, and comes nicely presented in a gift box. I received the watermelon colour purse - it's a lovely soft colour, not bright and garish.
For me, this size purse is ideal for when I want to use a small handbag and only a smallish purse will fit in it, or for those occasions when I don't want/or need to carry all the stuff that's in my regular purse. I'm not saying this purse is really small, it's not at all - it's just that I prefer a larger purse for everyday use.
The leather is soft, and the purse is nicely made.

This purse was sent by the supplier free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bamboo laundry basket, 12 July 2016
My initial impression was similar to one or two others that have received this laundry basket.
I unpacked it and thought it might be flimsy when it's assembled, but that's not the case at all.
The basket comes flat packed with a sheet of simple instructions and it's easy to put together.
The base slots into place, a metal support press-studs just under the rim, the liner goes in next and then the lid. It's not difficult, but you might require two pairs of hands to hold it steady whilst fixing things into place.
Bamboo tends to be lightweight and this basket is lightweight, but it is sturdy and holds a good amount of laundry items. The finish is good and it looks fine - I'm pleased with it.

I received the 72L laundry basket for free in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look lovely, 10 July 2016
I like these LED lights a lot, they look very pretty when they are lit up.
A remote control is included with these lights - and works perfectly. The different effects, the speed and the brightness can be altered to suit. LED's tend to be quite bright, so I like the option to change the brightness. With regards to the different effects, I prefer the non-flashing mode.
The lights are on a string of flexible silver wire and can be moulded into a shape as well as displayed in the usual way(s). The wire looks delicate, but appears to be sturdy and well made.
Overall - a versatile and efective product. I tend to use lights like this during the festive season, so I look forward to using them later in the year.
I was sent these lights by the supplier in exchange for a review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, 24 Jun. 2016
This purse looks smart and appears to be a nice quality item.
It has two zipped compartments - one for coins and the other is more suitable for notes and bank cards etc.
The zips are sturdy, a decent size - and run fairly smooth.
The only thing that I am not sure about is the claim that the purse is a genuine leather item. It doesn't look, feel or smell like a very good quality leather item, so it's possible that it means it's made of split leather.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable, 24 Jun. 2016
These are an average set of bike lights. I had a bit of trouble getting the front light to attach securely, so with regards to this issue, I think some people will have more luck than others.
I unpacked the lights and had no problems getting the light to work. Both lights are bright, powerful and perform well. Batteries are supplied for the rear light, but not the front.
The front light requires either 3 x AAA batteries or an 18650 battery. A battery holder is supplied for the 3 x AAA batteries and fits inside the light.
The word rechargeable is mentioned in the title description - this is confusing because it's not mentioned on the packaging or instructions, so I think it means you can use a rechargeable 18650 battery instead of the AAA’s. Rechargeable batteries are not supplied.
The rear light fastens to the bike frame with a piece of stretchy rubber. I had no problems putting the light in place – and up to now it has stayed firmly in place. ( see updated info below)
The front light fastens to the frame with a plastic bracket - this wouldn't secure to my bike very well, but hubby had more luck with it on his bike.
The front light can also be used as a hand held torch.
The instructions state that the lights will resist light rain but not heavy rain. Normal folk ride a bike outside, so I’m not sure why anyone would manufacture a set of lights that can’t cope with rain!

UPDATE - July 2016 - the rear light has fallen off, don't know where, but I sure ain't going to find it!
These lights were supplied free in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Energy saving LED bulbs, 9 Jun. 2016
The quality of this brand of bulb appears to be good (so far). I bought them to replace the GU10 50w halogen bulbs in the kitchen area, and I put them in place in February of this year.
So far so good, I have not had any bulbs fail.
My experiences of using similar bulbs, but a different brand, have been very good, so I hope these are as long-lasting.
I find that the effect of lighting provided by this type of bulb works better in some rooms/areas more than others - it's a case of experimenting with them - and the different shades available. I found this white shade too bright and clinical when I placed in the light fitting over the dining table, but fine situated in a walk way area of the kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good results, 9 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My GP gave me a prescription for this product, but it was for the smaller size tube - this 500g size is better value for money.
I don't suffer with eczema, but occasionally have itchy skin flare-ups. it's probably menopause related.
This cream really does work. It's soothing, clears any dryness up and keeps the itching at bay.
I apply it to the problem areas on a daily basis, more than once if required.
