5.0 out of 5 stars Tags are good, customer service is great!, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had some issues with my order, as the packaging wasn't very sturdy, and arriving in bundles meant that a number of tags arrived creased and bent. I also realised that the hole reinforcer stickers were in two different colours, a more orangey one (as pictured) and a dark brown.
Complained that a number of the tags were damaged, and the seller replied that they would send 50 extra tags to cover those damaged in transit. I was happy with their quick reply.
Decided to make the most of the unexpected two colours, and as I had planned on using them for place name cards for my wedding, use the darker ones for males, and the orange ones for females. However, because of a number of tags being damaged, I run out. But not to worry, the replacement tags were on their way! ... Except that when they arrived, these ones were a completely different colour, and not just the hole reinforcer sticker, but the whole tag, much paler. Being completely OCD now, I did not want to use different ones, so I emailed the seller and explained the situation. The seller apologised and explained that being made from recycled paper meant that different colour batches did occur, and that they could not guarantee the same colour throughout. I was offered a partial reimbursement. (I had bought 150 tags, they reimbursed me for 50).

Still, whilst I understood their explanation, I was now left in need of some of the tags I was originally sent. I replied to the seller thanking their efforts, and accepting the reimbursement. I also asked if they could please let me know if the other colour ones got back in stock, to place another order. I was missing 15 orange ones, and I was kind of desperate.
The seller replied saying they had issued a refund, and would sent me those 15 tags if they got them back in stock, free of charge. Two days later they email to let me know that they now have them, and will be sending them to me. I had already received my reimbursment, and a day later got the tags.

I am extremely happy with the customer service, and the tags. Have finished all the wedding ones and I now have extra, which I will use for Christmas presents!

2.0 out of 5 stars Forcing myself to finish it, 10 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say, I do not find it laugh out loud funny... As a matter of fact I am not really finding it funny at all... I have this thing about now leaving a book unfinished, so forcing myself now to finish it. Nearly done, and then I hope to move onto something better!

Not brilliant literature but quite entertaining all the same. Don't mean to sound too harsh, I mean, it was ok.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit bland, 10 Nov. 2013

Nothing to bad to say about it, other than it was not a great book. A few good stories, but overall pretty bland. I have read similar books which were better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for ideas, not so good for carbs!, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite disappointed by the book, as it is nothing like I was expecting. I have been following a low carbohydrate lifestyle for over two years now, so I have a very good understanding of what a low carbohydrate diet entails, and I was just hoping to get some ideas and inspiration from this book.
This book is full of recipes that to do not follow a low carbohydrate diet. I believe that the person that wrote the book did not have an understanding of what low carb meant. It would appear that the person believed that as long as no potatoes, pasta, rice or bread where in the book, then it would constitute low carb.

There are numerous recipes in the book that call for sugar, flour, carrots, sweet chilli sauce (the clue is in the name…), chestnuts … On top of that there use a lot of mention of fruit in the book, and most carbohydrate diets restrict fruit in the initial stages, so it might be confusing for people who might not know this. Apples and mangoes, which are used in the book are very high in carbs.

There also seems to be an emphasis on low-calorie ingredients, which is not really necessary in a low carb book, and seems ridiculous when other recipes use sugar!

All in all, not what I would call a low carb book, and not one I would recommend for anyone looking for a low carb book… Specially not for people new to this way of eating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps I should have read reviews before buying it..., 27 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...but I probably would have still bought it. My only issue is that like many others I find that it would make rather large cookies. Yes, no one will ever complaining that the cookies are too big, but I wanted to use it in baking biscuits as presents, and I was thinking of making cute little two-bite size ones. But still.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all those living in the UK, 29 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This books gives us an insight into life as a GP. It highlights the many problems the NHS faces but it does so in a hilarious way. Dr. Daniels has written a very good book. Will have you laughing out loud on several ocasions. It has now hooked me to the genre, and have also read books writen by people working in A&E and as paramedics, if you enjoyed this book, also try "In Stitches", "Sick notes" and "A paramedic's diary".

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-buy if you work for Sainsbury's, 16 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Checkout Girl (Kindle Edition)
You will enjoy this book anyway, but it is a must if you work or have worked at Sainsbury's as a checkout girl. I worked for a bit over 6 months, then tranfered to the pharmacy, and this book perfectly reflect life at Sainburys. It had me laughing out loud quite often, and I loved seeing we've all been through the same...
Great book!
