Autism: The Sacrifice of a Mother

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Story of Love, Strength and Survival, 1 Aug 2014
Autism:The sacrifice of a Mother is a refreshing and honest account of the experiences of a parent looking after an autistic child. The writer traces her and her family's challenges and triumphs from the birth of her son to the young man that he is now. She looks at the issue of autism and the challenges she faced in accessing services within the UK care system. The reader also gets an insight into issues facing a single parent of a child with special needs and later, that of a disabled young Black man. The writer's personal perspective provides a unique insight while not skimming over the facts and realities of caring for an autistic child. For me, the crunch came when I read the single chapter from the younger sister of the Autistic man. I could no longer hold in my emotions and had to let go. My only criticism would be the structure of the book. It could perhaps be tighter. But there is something really compelling about this book. I could not put it down until I'd finished reading it. Want to read something inspiring that also puts life into perspective...something most of us take for granted every day? Pick up this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good, functional and easy to clean., 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this for a few months now. It's effective and gets the job done in about two minutes. Much of the popped corn goes where it should while a few may scatter away due to the popping effect. You can use a tea towel to shield the bowl to prevent this. Some 'unpopped' corn gets in the popcorn bowl but I understand that all popcorn makers do this. The complimentary bag of corn sent along with the popcorn maker was a lovely surprise. I'm still popping the corn several months on and haven't needed to buy any of my own yet.

I'm a life long drinker of aloe Vera. 'Lily of the Desert' is simply the best Aloe Vera brand you can find. Taste, price and quality, there is no other match on the market. Juice or gel, the choice is yours.

Have been using them for about two months now. The magnet works well. I've used a single clip to hold up to five A4 papers at a time. Lovely colours too. I think they would last a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay, 15 Nov 2013

They're okay. Would have preferred them a bit bigger. Took ages to arrive. If looking for something small it's fine. Good thing is both spray bottles could easily fit into a small ladies' bag

4.0 out of 5 stars Carries the equivalent of full bags of shopping over one shoulder. Great quality and design., 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Really nice. Took it out today. Carried the equivalent of two bags of shopping as I had to return some items to the shops. It would not have been easy for me to carry those shopping bags on their own as I walked around all day long. Kipling bag made a better and lighter job of it! I'm now a Kipling fan. Can't wait to get more Kipling bags."

4.0 out of 5 stars Loving It, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nine East (Paperback)
I love Uche Nduka's collection. It has an organic yet mysterious feel to it. It's accessible and also very deep in layers. The poems will intrigue, amuse and inspire you. I read 50 of the hundred poems the same day it arrived in the post and wanted to read some more. I particularly love the sensuality as well as the metaphysical tone to Mr Nduka's poems. Looking forward to finishing my first read and I will then go over my favourite ones of which there are many to choose from. I wish they had titles but they only have numbers, which I believe is a statement in itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's light, practical, easy to use, clean, never smells and never spills. We've tried a number of bottles including some well known brand names. This is the best so far. My daughter's only gripe is that it is somewhat plain in design. Perhaps Sistema could improve on this. Brilliant brand nonetheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roomy, yet stylish and practical., 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived promptly. Exactly as pictured. Has several compartments enough for a couple of medium sized books, an ipad and a phone. It is quite roomy for its size which I love. Looking forward to rocking it on my travels. Kipling bags have an exceptional quality to them as well as practicability and this is no exception.
