5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent travel and home game, 1 Mar 2012

This review is from: LETRA MIX (Toy)
This simple game is a cross between dice and scrabble. There are 13 dice each side having a letter and a score. You throw them at random all together, set the timer, and try to make a crossword using all the dice. Then add up your score which the others have to beat. Great fun and equally good for kids and adults. You can take it anywhere in your pocket. Ideal for waits at airports, camping etc.

This starter set arrived on time and worked well. It was easy to connect up the track and electrics and my 5 year old grandson (& I !) loved it. Highly recommended, and good value.

Aroma Home Body Wrap - Microwaveable Wheat & Lavender Leaf - Tartan

4.0 out of 5 stars Lower back help, 24 April 2011
Recommended by my physiotherapist, the Aroma body wrap I bought was a great comfort. Easy to heat in the microwave, I lay with it under my lower back in bed last thing at night, and for a short while each morning. My back felt a lot better for it.Aroma Home Body Wrap - Microwaveable Wheat & Lavender Leaf - Lavender

4.0 out of 5 stars A chance encounter, 5 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Book Thief (Paperback)
A chance encounter and recommendation of this book at a conference led to me purchasing and reading it. And I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The Book Thief, a young girl adopted by a German family just before the second world war seems deprived of everything except her desire to learn to read. This leads to book stealing and night time readings with her step father whom she adores. The war, when it comes, complicates things especially as the family is hiding a Jew in the basement, but she has extra support from a local boy. The writing style is fascinating, with interjected paragraphs in bold stylized print, making points or emphasising a part of the story. This takes a bit of getting used to but after the first few chapters, I found myself looking forward to these interruptions. It's a very different book but a good story and a good read.

I needed a gold coloured bow tie for a 50th birthday party and this set was better value than an individual bow tie. Good quality & went down a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very best of Judy Collins, 11 Mar 2009
The Very Best of Judy Collins
I had lost the original cassette tape of this and was delighted to find it on a CD. It really is great emotive music from this singer with a wonderful voice. Listen to the Hump back Whales in the background or Leonard Cohen's Suzanne and many more...
