Divided Kingdom
Divided Kingdom
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Divided Kingdom, one for the list I would eagerly recommend., 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Divided Kingdom (Kindle Edition)
A fantastic and absorbing book. Great satisfaction from the way the narrative unfolds. So often in modern literature, I feel that an author has an idea, or several, that loose momentum during the telling, but Rupert Thomson manages to weave the plot through several stages and keeps the telling fresh and absorbing.

it is not often that a book moves me as this one did. I had such an experience reading Tess when i was younger and Wuthering Heights later, and yes, I know rank this book as one of my "must reads" for future generations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lego kit to make you smile.... (if you are 6?), 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter loves it, I do not feel so strongly. Just to say, for lego, which can often be very short on pieces per pound, this box is above average value. There is the car, the horse box, the horse, and various bits and bobs to put on and off.


Yousave Accessories PU Leather Wallet Cover Case for Nexus 4 - Black
Yousave Accessories PU Leather Wallet Cover Case for Nexus 4 - Black
Price: £9.87

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value case for Nexus 4., 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My old Nexus 4 has a new home in the clutches of my son (9 years). So far, this case has proved to be child damage proof, and has saved the phone from the inevitable bumps, scratches and cracks, which would normally follow the drops and excited use.

Screen protector went on nicely too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dan Rhodes has a Marmite moment, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to be very mixed reactions to this. Those who love and those who hate.

It amused me; I like Dan's style and from that perspective this book does not disappoint, cute story line, fun characters, although a little plastic and surreal at times. Yes we all know it is just a story, and maybe the ending is predictable, but overall the book is a fun romp through the English winter countryside, full of characters who wouldn't be out of place in Jeeves and Worster novels.

5L Pump Action Pressure Sprayer - use with water, fertilizer or pesticides
Offered by Garden Selections
Price: £8.05

3.0 out of 5 stars Pump spray - its ok, but i have had better, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this to tackle some Ivy and Ground Elder in the garden (They are weeds, not elderly relatives).

The sprayer is adequate, the hoses ok and the pump action also ok. The problem with the device is the seals. You need good seals to keep the pressure in when pumping, and i had to give this a hefty tighten to stop the air escaping. I added some spare seals i had for another project and it works reasonably.

The spray action is ok, but not as adjustable or strong as my old faithful sprayer, which i use for pesticides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get going with your Ants!, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tobar Antquarium (Toy)
I bought this for my 9 year old son; we had seen a similar device at a London museum, but he had opted to purchase something else. When he had the chance to make a present request, this was first on his mind.

Having looked at some reviews online, i realised not all Ant boxes are created equal. Some require the gel to be mixed, this one comes ready to go. The box includes the preloaded Gel container, a smaller container and stick for capturing your ant prey, and a decent set of instructions.

We now have a dozen or so happy ants, and all three children are fascinated, the parents quite like it too.
