Acctim 13253 Smartlite Travel LCD Alarm, Black
Acctim 13253 Smartlite Travel LCD Alarm, Black
Price: £12.79

3.0 out of 5 stars No batteries included, 21 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazon details this clock as including batteries: IT DOES NOT and the packaging itself states clearly batteries not included. Amazon has not given me the option of leaving customer feedback about this so please would someone note this and amend the product details accordingly on the Amazon website.
It is a nice looking travel clock but there is just one switch for setting time / alarm And for turning alarm off and on and this switch is very tacky with only a tiny difference between each notch so getting this right is very difficult. Huge design fault as you will find that the alarm is off when you think it's on and vice versa. You can see the one switch in the picture on the right side. It just slides up and down and you have four options you have to get just right. NOT good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Women's Institute history, 8 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bows of Burning Gold (Paperback)
Good history of WI up to 2005 which is much-needed as there is a dearth of histories of the movement up to the present. Done chronologically year by year, with useful listings at end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brewer's Dictionary of Modern Phrase & Fable, 8 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the bible for anyone interested in the development of the English language and origins of modern phrases. Entertaining, reliable, factual and illuminating. It covers terms and sayings that have developed in the later 20th Century and early 21st Centuries - if you want earlier, just go for Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase & Fable. Great for quizzes and invaluable for sorting out arguments on the true facts behind particular word and phrase origins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crocs Athens sandals, 8 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These sandals are fabulous - beautifully comfortable, incredibly hardwearing and nice-looking. I wore them all summer at home, at the beach, even rock-climbing and they got admired many times. Moreover, unlike the ugly croc clogs, they are actually quite elegant. Be careful with the sizes when ordering. The soles give the mens AND womens size - for instance M5 W7 - BUT they are sold by the mens size, even the so-called ladies sandal! So, ladies, if you want size 7, you need to order size 5 - ridiculous but that's how it seems to be.
