5.0 out of 5 stars Mum's the word !, 3 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's smashing . I was three months trying to choose a new microwave. In 'n out of shops - then finding the reviews of the ones I could live with.
Found this one in a local shop 'n liked it immediately, It 's a very convenient size, not too big and it's black front 'n white body looks smart 'n serviceable. Bought it on AMAZON £10 cheaper and no delivery charge. Arrived on time Controls not difficult to understand and operate.
I love the functions. Even a button to hot up that cold coffee you forgot about. Most convenient choice of heat settings. Bought some scones and warmed them up on a low setting. My visitors thought they were freshly baked in the oven. So Mum's the word !

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job and easy to fit., 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took me longer to get the ladders out and up, than to fit these neat blue flashing lights and battery boxes into my Burglar Alarm boxes.

They arrived at the time I specified and with a bit of sellotape fitted easy into the boxes.

It may be true that if a burglar wants to get in they will. But for the opportunist seeing the flashing lights in the Alarm boxes they may pass by for an easier target.

Who knows but they make me feel a little safer and for £7.99 they are a neat gadget .

2.0 out of 5 stars The battle of the window seat, and the tumbling curls, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think Melanie has worked hard on this book to reflect Elizabeth 1st and Nicholas as people and fit them into the times they knew . I didn't finish the book ( I normally do) because I was not sure I found the dialogue particularly riveting. See what you think with some pieces I have lifted between Elizabeth 1st and the artist Nicholas etc.

"Come." She rose and led the way to a bay window where she sat down and and patted the space next to her indicating, that he sit. Her green silk gown rustled as she move. And from the worthy monarch a bit later on " ..come and sit down next to me " Elizabeth patted the window seat turned and looked out of the window contemplating the park..

Two pats of the seat before Nicholas got the message ?

And later .."Nicholas approached, bowed took ( the Queen's) hand and kissed it. Her hand cream was scented with attar of roses. He wished he could hold her hand longer and take deep breaths of that lovely scent of summer "

And another piece with a different lady "Alice smoothed an imaginary crease from the fold of her skirt with an immaculately manicured hand. She look up and smiled a shy little smile. Nicholas noticed how the blue of her gown matched the blue of her eyes and set off the soft pale gold of her hair. Soft curls tumbled down her back and wisps of hair softened the outline of her face."

So if you like this type of dialogue and interaction ...this could be the book for you.

Sekonda Men's Quartz Watch with White Dial Analogue Display and Black Nylon Strap 3915.27

5.0 out of 5 stars I am wearing it now !, 19 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sturdy watch, very comfortable to wear and good for lights outs.

A good clear face, a comfortable sturdy light weight strap and unlike some clunky watches - you don't know it's there till you need the time.

Service.

I was a little concerned that it failed to arrive although shown as delivered - but I was very impressed with the service I got thereafter as after I raised my concerns - one arrived within a couple of days .

Buy with confidence !

Thank you very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Head for dangerous times, 19 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoy history but some books are hard going. This is not one of them.

Claire is the sort of lady you'd like to sit next to in a dinner party. Lots of interesting information presented in often a chatty way. And well able to balance the gossip with peoples motives and weave her way through a Hampton Court maze of fact and fiction.

Was Anne tempted from the straight and narrow by young Mark Smeaton , why did Henry tire of the excitement of a mistress when she became his wife? Were there any shocking revelations about Ann's last pregnancy ?

Well Claire will reveal all...and you don't loose your head over the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good adventure based on fact., 8 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Longitude [DVD] (DVD)
I saw the DVD playing at the National Maritime Museum London and it looked pretty authentic.

I was not disappointed. Well acted and really super locations both on land and at sea and a gripping story based on fact.

If you are interested in timepieces, sea voyages an excellent script and all at a good pace - this is for you.
