4.0 out of 5 stars Good adaptation of a Dickens classic, 9 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dombey and Son [ 1983 ] BBC (DVD)
Dombey and Son has always been my favourite of Dicken's novels and this adaptation is good and the quality of the DVD was good. The novel is very long and so of course many details were cut in the adaptation, but the main thread is not lost. My only gripe was that the character of Captain Cuttle wasn't as good as I'd hoped - he is the best character in all of the novels and I'd hoped for something more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective screen, 9 Jun 2012

We have found this product to be a very effective shower guard, it cleans easily and folds away very neatly when not in use. When space is at a premium this is a great product and very competitively priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good machine with plenty of programmes, 9 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressed with this machine, lots of programmes and up to now the programmes I have used have given good results. The only problem I have found is that if it is necessary to add more flour (if the mix is to wet), it tends to spray all over the inside of the machine. All in all, a good product.

Really enjoyed this film, great to see old-fashioned humour and especially Terry Thomas in great form. The whole cast and plot line were very funny and made for a very enjoyable evening's entertainment

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatrix Potter, 29 Aug 2011

This review is from: Miss Potter [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
We really enjoyed watching this film, the casting was excellent and the settings superb. Having just visited the Lakes where Beatrix Potter lived brought it all to life and could help us appreciate just why she loved this part of England so very much. I'm not sure how accurate the details were regarding her life story, not knowing that much about her, but the film was extremely enjoyable. It was good too, the way it made you appreciate the restrictions on women at the time she was alive and how courageous she was to strike out to become an authoress in the way she did, not allowing the snobbery around her to affect her dreams or her friendships. All in all, a good buy.

Cook Yourself a Favour: Over 300 Recipes to Help Yourself to Better Health
Cook Yourself a Favour: Over 300 Recipes to Help Yourself to Better Health
by Sheila Gibson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Healthy eating, 23 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has some good recipes for healthier eating with some interesting uses of vegetables, grains and pulses. Although published quite some time ago the introduction has very relevant advice on diet for today. Although not strictly vegeterian (some fish recipes included) there are certainly plenty of recipes that could be classed as such. A useful book for reference and for meal planning.


Shakespeare (SHAKESPEARE THE COMEDIES)
Shakespeare (SHAKESPEARE THE COMEDIES)
by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare the comedies, 30 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great to have all the comedies of Shakespeare in one volume, rather than a hefty volume of all his works. Comedy of errors is my favourite and always cheers me up in a gloomy hour. Well worth having in the library.


Emma (Collector's Library)
Emma (Collector's Library)
by David Pinching
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 6.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Emma by Jane Austen, 24 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jane Austen had the ability to transport the reader back to the early 1800's and feel part of the society that existed then. This novel, the same as all her others, deals with the everyday happenings in the life of the heroine, nothing spectacular ever happens but entertains with her ability to dissect human nature and laugh at the foibles of mankind. This novel isn't a favourite but very enjoyable nontheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Body Sculpture BM1505, 3 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had tried another power vibrator machine at a friend's house and this machine feels different in the way it works. The power plate swivels which is good for ease of getting off but slightly annoying when doing an exercise. As yet, after aiming at around 15-20 mins per day (as recommended by the brochure) I have not noticed much difference in my body shape, except for some tightening around the hip area, but I have only been using it for a short while so it is early days.
My only complaint is the brochure - the instructions are not well written and somewhat hard to understand in parts. More exercise positions could be recommended and explanations as to which parts of the body will be targeted by them (as I have seen for other models). I went on UTube for more ideas with different machines.
