5.0 out of 5 stars Just great, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Timeless undiscovered (by me) classic. Great for in the car or, surprisingly, for exercising; very steady beat. Will this do?


Fleece Walking Hiking Skiing Beanie Hat - Colour Black Size One Size
Fleece Walking Hiking Skiing Beanie Hat - Colour Black Size One Size

5.0 out of 5 stars Snug fit and toasty warm, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Took a chance on this as I normally like to try stuff on, but this hat fits perfectly (tight and just over the ears) and the fleece fabric is very effective in this relentless cold weather.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality crockery at a reasonable price., 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike plates from the supermarket or ikea these are quality plates that are very robust and unlikely to chip; and very good value.

2.0 out of 5 stars No good at either job, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Speedo Elite Pullkick (Sports)
A great idea to save space in the kit bag by combining a float and a pull bouy but sadly the only thing it does well is save space. As a float it's too small and sits under the water; as a pull bouy, it only stays in place until you turn at which point it shifts about forcing you to pause and adjust its position. Basically a false economy - not recommended at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit angular, 29 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chose this pull buoy for the easy grip strap line as I often had trouble with losing pull buoys when I turned. This one solves that problem (and keeps your legs slightly apart which is a bit novel) but the angular edges are uncomfortable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for papergirls (and boys), 24 Sept. 2011
My 14 year old daughter recently got a paper round and found the over the shoulder bag useless for carrying the ridiculous multipart newspaper of today, especially at the weekends. We needed a simple large capacity pannier and this bag was exactly the thing. It can take about 20 Saturday Telegraphs (no mean feat) and slots neatly onto the rear rack of her bike. It's also a sensible price, being about a third of the cost of the fancy cycle touring panniers that are the only other alternative in bike shops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smiley face, 23 July 2010
This review is from: Snacktime! (Audio CD)
Every time I hear this CD it puts a smile on my face; without patronisong the bnl boys come up with a set of songs that are genuinely for all ages. I have 5 daughters (aged 10 - 16) all of whom love it (although they fight about which song to listen to!). Any band that can come up with a song about tadpoles, vegetables and loving your big sister (but not wanting to wear her coat) must have some genius about them. There are touching moments too like 'having a bad day'. My personal favourite is the ABC song - A is for Aisle, B is for Bdellium... This one's definitely in the car for the upcoming 5 hour holiday car drive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Revolution on your allotment, 27 Oct. 2009
This review is from: How To Be Free (Paperback)
Any book that states that both banks and supermarkets are evil is on to a winner. Bankers, we are all told are all going to hell for their usurious practices and supermarkets are so bad that they all want to become banks! This book made me chuckle but also gently introduced me to a calmer better way of running the world. It is written in a wide ranging, considered and dry manner which, despite this, serves to inspire you to hop off the merry-go-round of modern life and potter about in your shed. My only criticism is that it was a bit short on detail. I'm a single father of five and to stop my job would just mean destitution as I wouldn't be able to grow much veg in my concrete yard. Still, infinitely preferable to the life story of David Cameron.
