5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job perfectly, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recognising the need for a cover to protect my newly acquired Kindle, but being thrifty by nature, I did not see the need to spend more money than necessary on this basic essential item. This cover does exactly what is required. It was easy to fit and looks smart, and the stylus was the icing on the cake which made me plump for this purchase. HIghly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Such a beautiful song, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to offer this much-loved song to a small group of singers for perform on holiday, so naturally I turned to the King's Singers for "best practice" performance. It's a lovely arrangement, but I feel the instrumental interludes are a rather shrill distraction and I personally prefer the mesmeric, more mellow version on a previous album, where the song wafts along dreamily. But, having said that, it is only a "preference" - this present version conveys a different, more modern, edgy atmosphere - so I still love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy for holidays abroad, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this for tea-making on a hotel holiday in Spain. Sure, it took up precious luggage space and weight, but was so convenient to have in the room, and saved money in the long run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Audience participation at its best, 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want a traditional folk song to get the audience joinging in, this is it - though The Yetties have provided plenty more like it over the years.

This review is from: Spanish Ladies (MP3 Download)
Whenever I want to hear how a song should sound, I turn to The Yetties, who give a sound which is both robust and musical. What a legacy they have given us!

5.0 out of 5 stars White lace hanky needed, 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This beautiful and affecting song is especially suited to Bonny's crystal clear voice. The instrumental interludes between the verses are lovely, and the introduction of the drum into the middle verse is quite chilling. For all Yetties fans, this is a song to remember.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas gift, 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a friend who has Reynaud's disease and has to work outside in winter. This gift was shall we say warmly welcomed, but has not yet been put to the test.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of very few watches that fit my criteria, 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was surprising to me how "good name" few ladies watches have full numbers (as opposed to dots or dashes) and an expanding bracelet, and are still attractive. I agree with other reviewers that the black numbers make the watch a little old-fashioned, but I suppose that's what makes it "easy to read", so I can't have it both ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and the dog likes it, 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value. The dog likes it. Delivered right to the door, what more is there to say? Only, perhaps, that our border collie can't eat a whole sack full in a month, so, sadly, it is not worth me subscribing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This game was introduced to me by a young adult friend, and first played by 3 generations of very competitive adults. So I bought it to keep 8 yr old grandson amused on a wet Saturday afternoon. He took to it immediately, and invited a friend round so we could share it. I have since shown it to other grandmothers who see it as a great present for under the Christmas tree. It is easy to set up, and you learn the rules as you go along. The fact that it comes in a tin makes it really special.
