The Weight of Blood
The Weight of Blood
by Laura McHugh
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent first novel, 25 Jun 2014
This review is from: The Weight of Blood (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Weight Of Blood is Laura McHugh's first novel. The plot concerns Lucy Dane, whose Mother dissapeared several years ago. When one of her friends is murdered Lucy sets out to find the truth about her friends murder and the dissapearance. This search leads her to a chilling discovery.

Laura McHugh has created an interesting character in Lucy Dane. The plot is interesting and moves at a good pace. If you enjoy a good mystery with some nice twists then why not give The Weight Of Blood a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A big hit with my daughter, 9 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Like many other children my daughter loves Finding Nemo. So this water resistance back pack designed like an orange clownfish is proving to be a big hit with her. The bag is large enough to hold her swimming costume as well as a town and shampoo. The backpack is comfortable and easy to use. It is water resistant and made of striong durable material. So all in all an excellent item and ideal for children. Thumbs up from me and my daughter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather too much shredded tissue paper, 9 Jun 2014
This review is from: Galt Toys Art Jar (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As other reviewers have pointed out this Galt Toys art jar contains rather too much shredded tissue paper. However the rest of the items are ideal for artistic children who enjoy makeing pictures and generally being creative. The jar is useful for storing things in afterwards. A big jar of sweets springs to mind. Dispite all the tissue paper which is usefull and fun to use, this is a pritty good item though abit on the expensive side.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable bag, 20 May 2014
This review is from: The Murder Bag (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Murder Bag by Tony Parsons. This is the first book to feature Detective Max Wolfe. Other reviwers have covered the synopsis of the book, so I will concentrate on the writing and characterisation. The plot moves at a good pace with some interesting twists and turns. I found Mr Parsons writing style easy to read. The characters are nicely fleshed out. If you enjoy a good thriller then you could do alot worse than The Murder Bag. I looks forward to reading more of Max Wolfes exploits in furture books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Glitter Domes., 20 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Galt Toys is a fairly well known toy manufacturer, in fact there used to be a Galt Toys shop in my old home town when I was a lad. Hours of pleasure were spent there. These Fairy Glitter domes are alot of fun for children. I would say they are only suitable for children over the age of 4 due to small items.

This item contains 2 large glitter domes, foam stickers, 10 fibre tip pens and some printed pictures. They are quite easy to assemble and look really nice once they are. A nice item which is good fun too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of fun, 14 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Dr Miriam Galt Fill and Spill Barn is a very well made toy. The pieces are wooden and very durable. My daughter spends hours making new set ups and games - usually bringing in other toys to make an interesting set up. This play barn is well made and above all fun to play with. I can't really ask for more than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars My wife loves it, 14 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife is a keen knitter so I couldn't resist buying her this book. Knitting Smitten is nicely illustrated and the patterns and directions (according to she who must be obayed) are fairly easy to follow. My wife has already knitted one of the patterns and is looking forward to starting the next one. A nice book which knitters should enjoy.


Out of The Furnace [DVD] [2013]
Out of The Furnace [DVD] [2013]
Dvd ~ Christian Bale
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A top notch cast in an enjoyable film, 23 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Out Of The Furnace is quite a dark film but don't let that put you off. Saying that this film isn't exactly family viewing but if you enjoy a good action/thriller then this film is well worth watching. The plot is exciting and the cast, which includes Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) and Woody Harrison (Natural Born Killers), is top notch. The dvd picture and sound quality is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes a nice cuppa, 22 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I do enjoy a nice cup of tea and was eager to try P G Tips pure green (I keep thinking of Blackadder 2 when Percy invents pure green instead of gold - but that's just me having a moment). P G Tips are one of my favourite makers of tea and I have to say that I really enjoyed their green tea. The bags are pyramid shaped which allows them to infuse your cup with flavour. I normally stew my tea for a good few minutes but the packaging recommends you stew these bags for no more than two minutes which is what I did and it made a first class cuppa.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 10 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Dettol antibacterial laundry cleanser does the job pritty well. I put it in the conditional draw of my washing machine and it does the job very well. The only thing that I would mark it down on is the packaging. The bottle it came in wasn't very strong and cracked easily so don't be too rough with it. Apart from that this is a very good product.
