5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, high quality hangers which save lots of space!, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 100 JVL Soft Velvet Black Hangers
These hangers are great and of a high quality. I have had them in use since January 2013 and they are as good as the day I received them - well packaged, by the way. In all that time, I have had absolutely no marks on my clothes, so they have not shed any fibres.

After reading about some other coated hangers, I was a little worried that these might shed their little fibres all over the place, but these are absolutely fine. Nice, strong hangers, which I wiped over with a dry microfibre cloth - just to be on the safe side, not that I needed to worry, as I discovered!

I bought 200 of them and highly recommend them. Makes the wardrobe look much neater and organised. It's true, you do get much more space!


Time's Echo
Time's Echo
by Pamela Hartshorne
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic read, 18 April 2013

This review is from: Time's Echo (Paperback)
This book is very well written and I thoroughly enjoyed it, couldn't put it down! The author seamlessly moves the reader between the two characters' lives, one set in Medieval York and the other in modern day York. The descriptions of their surroundings are excellent and do not overshadow the story at all. It is an effortless and enjoyable read, a book of high quality which is well deserving of 5 stars!

Pamela Hartshorne is the new time-slip author on the block and, my word, does she give the others a run for their money! I await her next novel with anticipation! Many thanks Pamela!

Not your average Where's Wally book. It contains a few games to play, in addition to the usual 'hunt for Wally' activity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly boots, 15 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These boots get a 5 star rating as they are just perfect: Trendy, quirky, beautifully designed, well balanced and they are the most comby boots you can imagine!

Lined with lambs wool, they are really warm as well, plus nice and supportive. I have wide feet - an E width - but I can get these on. For the first few minutes, I was a bit worried that they were too tight, but then the lambs wool lining moulded to my feet and it's as though they were made to measure. I love them so much that I bought a second pair!

HUGE thumbs up - what more can I say?


Seiko QHK018W Bedside Alarm Clock

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting clock, 8 Aug. 2012
This clock is beautifully designed, well made and looks very attractive.

You have a choice of being woken by a bell, a buzz or birdsong:

I am pretty sure that the clock actually contains a bell, as it is very realistic and strong sounding!

The buzzer reminds me of a submarine's sonar sound with the buzzes sounding in pairs. It's quite a nice, strong sound. It begins with the buzzes being further apart, with the time lapse between them decreasing as it gets into full swing!

The birdsong is my favourite: Delightful, charming and as effective as any alarm or buzz! The clock has two different bird song sound files installed and it alternates between them, each time the alarm is used. Each sound file has a bubbling brook in the background and very authentic sounding birdsong over this. If you visit Seiko's website and find this clock, you can scroll down to the bottom of their web page and listen to the sample mp3 files. You would imagine that the sound would send you to sleep, but it doesn't as the bird song is so pleasant to listen to and is strong sounding.

There is a switch at the bottom front of the clock, which has three positions in order for you to set it to use the bell, buzz or birdsong. When you select any of them, the clock plays a sample of the sound. It is all well made (not at all flimsy) and very clear as to what you are selecting.

When you switch the alarm to, 'on', the clock again provides a sample of the sound, which is a re-assuring way to confirm that it is definitely, 'on'.

The backlight (button at top of clock) also acts as a snooze button, with a lapse of about 5 minutes before the selected alarm goes off again. The light itself is situated to the bottom-right of the clock face. It isn't the strongest light in the world and you have to look very hard to ascertain the time!

I need a light and 2 clocks to wake me up in the morning(!). So far, the bird song has woken me up on it's own!! It is so nice to be woken by this rather than by a radio, bell or buzz.

Finally, the clock comes boxed and includes the 3 x AA batteries required. All in all, very pleased with it and am sure that it will last for a long time to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully made and very sad, 6 Nov. 2011

This review is from: Agora [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
Beautifully made, this film tells the story of Hypatia, a very gifted scientist of her day who was limited in what she could achieve due to her having been born female.

A sad tale of what can occur when humans willingly use religion and ridiculous rules for their own gain. This film moved me to tears for the sheer ignorance of her fellow beings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous, marvellous, marvellous!, 5 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Buccaneers [DVD] (DVD)
So glad that this has finally been released on DVD as I owned the VHS version for many years.

A timeless classic which follows the fortunes of four young American women who have a chance to enter British society in the Victorian era.

Beautifully shot, it features a number of great locations. The musical score enhances the story and the costumes are just beautiful.

Very well acted, it has a fantastic cast. All in all a feast for the senses and riveting stuff indeed! I watched the entire thing in one sitting - just couldn't wait to experience it all again!

This film is marvellous! A first rate cast and excellent writing all the way through. Fantastic British comedy at it's best. Set in an English village, it has an endearing, quaint feel to it. Beautifully shot and well chosen music to boot. All the actors play their parts so well, it would feel less than polite to pick anyone out in particular. Having said that, Dame Maggie Smith has to be commended for her wonderful performance. Give yourself a treat and buy this film - you will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really useful book, 3 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1000 Freezer Recipes (Hardcover)
This book is brilliant. The recipes are easy to follow and each provides freezing, defrosting and re-heating instructions. Well worth the money, it's one of those books and is timeless and I will never want to part with it!
Whichever publisher holds the rights to this book is missing out: They really should re-issue the book and sell some more copies - they'd go like hot cakes! (Probably feezable ones!)
