How to See Yourself As You Really Are
How to See Yourself As You Really Are

Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a thought provoking, life changing little book encouraging you to question your perceptions and alter your way of living in such a subtle way you may not even be aware of it... It is at times complex to read and needs to be slowly digested, reflected upon, but stays with you at a certain level forever after. Highly recommend this book for anyone who has experienced the "glums" of living in today's shambled society. A breath of fresh air and life.

Thought provoking and energising. Should be on school curriculum. Reading this book encourages one to further research and offers help to find some inner peace in this time.

When Jack Sued Jill - Nursery Rhymes for Modern Times
by Felix Dennis
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.09

3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable no more, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good idea but lacking bite. Some stories sound better than others. A mixed bunch. The concept is good but the delivery failed in intent.
Modern political /social commentaries as nursery rhythms are fine and to be encouraged as statements of our times but relying or using he patterns/frame work or titles of older rhythms mixed the images and he effect, straddling times as it were.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a stunner, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed doing this first latch work rug. Design was complicated enough to keep my mind from becoming bored with a more repetitive one. The materials are good and plentiful allowing for any mistakes. The wool does produce some "fluff" when rubbed but this clears quickly if rubbed which helps merge colours into better patterns. The box includes a small latch hook. I would suggest that a number of plasters are handy as, if you are as clumsy as myself, the outside if the little finger can get rubbed with the movements repeated.
I really enjoyed doing this work. It grew quickly, allowed me to watch TV, listen to radio as well and I had a acceptable rug I can put in the house which lightens up. Corner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely but challenging, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this cross stitch piece because I had indulged in the pain by number version first. Whereas the paint by number allows some individual expression , by its nature, cross stitching does not. This is a lovely piece wen finished which stands well beside the painting but the instructions were rather puzzling!
No English words only Chinese and Russian and symbols. Took a while to get he hang of which were the number of threads needed. Suggest tacking original material into sixths as the pattern is on different pages which makes overall view and counting difficult. Alternatively, photocopy, cut and stick together to get full view.
I enjoyed the challenge as the end result is a pleasing design.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth more, 3 Mar 2013

Acceptable but plasticky. Got these as an emergency stand by for extra guests and discovered that they would be ideal for picnic or BBQ occasions but certainly not on a dinning table where they looked cheap.
