5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & useful book, 12 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is a lot in here, the book is huge with a great deal of content. It is well laid out in clear sections and there are examples and activities, and also an option to use the content on a mobile device. If you are looking at a nursing career then this should be a must buy. My only criticism would be that it is paperback. Something of this size should have been a hardback book. Still, it is definitely recommended.


Paul Lamond The Story Telling Game

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, but great fun, 1 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really a game the whole family can play. The premise is simple, include in a story what is on a card that you hold. There are rules and a buzzer, however we found it equally fun just making up our own rules. This worked better, especially with a younger player (6). In fact we sometimes used to play a storytelling game in the car, each person took a turn to say a sentence. This games gives a bit more direction. It is really good fun and excellent for stimulating imaginations. Recommended.


BT 350 Digital Baby Monitor Lightshow
BT 350 Digital Baby Monitor Lightshow
Price: £54.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent baby monitor, 27 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Clear instructions, good range (even into the back garden). The sounds are nice, and it has multiple other features (such as temperature display, cry mode, and talkback). The sound is really clear and crisp and not once has there been interference such as on another monitor which we used to have. If you are looking for a baby monitor with plenty of features and one that is good quality, then I would definitely recommend this one. There were no negatives to it at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic speaker, 21 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions were that this is small, very small. It takes seconds to pair with a phone or other device, and once paired you can start to use the speaker. Considering the size I was very impressed with the sound, it was deep, powerful, and pretty impressive for such a small speaker. It is very portable and can be charged from a micro USB cable (like a lot of other devices these days). The only negative would be at high volumes there is a little distortion and the sound quality dips somewhat, but that is at the extreme end of the volume scale. At normal listening volumes, this product is a delight and extremely good value for anyone looking for a small, portable speaker.


QuickBooks Online Essentials, 12-Month Subscription (Mac/PC)
QuickBooks Online Essentials, 12-Month Subscription (Mac/PC)
Price: £149.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything a very small business would need - just check the other options first, 24 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lots of features, especially suitable for small businesses (including one-man-bands and micro businesses). It is only for 12 months of the software, so factor that into your consideration as to whether it is cost effective or not. It is easy to use, but I would recommend really looking at these packages to see which one is the most suitable. For example for most types of businesses like I have mentioned above, the simplestart package (which is cheaper) would suffice. If you are looking for multiple user access then go for this version as the simplestart only has one user included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and easy to use, 24 Oct 2014
This review is from: QuickBooks Pro 2015 (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'd used a previous version of QuickBooks, so I was keen to see the possible differences. It was simple to install (on my Windows 7 machine) and immediately it was clear that the home screen has been updated so that everything you need is laid out very simply. It has the ability to create very professional looking invoices, calculate VAT, and manage pretty much every function a small business might need to use (including a business snapshot screen). The only thing it really doesn't do it Payroll (you have to buy the + Payroll version for that). I would say that if you are a small business owner looking for this type of product, then this is certainly something to consider. If you only had last years version then it may be worth waiting another year or so as the changes themselves are not that drastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic thermometer, 24 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We used to have an ear thermometer, which was a utter nightmare in the night-time to get a reading on the kids without waking them. This is so easy, it doesn't even have to be touching them at all! I found this hard to believe, but it really works. In fact I tried a no touching test, followed by a touching test, then used the ear thermometer, and got the same readings on all of them. Batteries are included (AA) which is good, and there is a traffic light system guide to advise you on the temperature. The old ear thermometer has gone in the bin, this is the way forward. Our kids are now a little older (6 & 9), but this is still excellent for their ages too, in fact for all the family. It is more hygienic (no poking in ears!) and is quick and very easy to use. For a young baby I would consider this type of product an absolute essential. If you are on the lookout for a family thermometer, then this is the one for you.


Cole & Mason 145 mm Brushed Chrome Oxley One Handed Pepper and Salt Mill Set, Set of 2, Silver
Cole & Mason 145 mm Brushed Chrome Oxley One Handed Pepper and Salt Mill Set, Set of 2, Silver
Price: £38.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Good set, 22 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Positives:
- They look good!
- Easy to use
- Setting to change courseness of salt/pepper
- Easy to refill (just open the top)
- 10 year guarantee on the mechanism

Negatives:
- The top that comes off to refill feels cheap. It looks fine (when you remove the clear sticker that's over it to protect it, which I notice another review left on....)
- On the finest setting, the salt is still a little too chunky for my taste. I prefer salt to be finer, and to use less of it.

Overall if you are looking for a salt and pepper set and you like the look of these, I would go for it as long as you can handle the couple of negatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent docking system, 19 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I thought I would try this out as I've never really used a speaker dock like this before. Setup was really easy, pretty much just plug it in and go. You can obviously use it with your Apple device, but also with others, such as my partner uses it to play music on her laptop. In terms of the sound, it is really pretty impressive. The audio is clear, crisp, and doesn't sound tinny at all. I would definitely recommend this product.


Hornby R1138 GWR Passenger Freight 00 Gauge Electric Train Set
Hornby R1138 GWR Passenger Freight 00 Gauge Electric Train Set
Price: £72.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent starter set, 18 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had many train sets in my younger days and really enjoyed playing with them. Unfortunately I got rid of them all years ago and have regretted it ever since. When the opportunity arose to get this I jumped at the chance, eager to relive my youth, and of course see if my son (9) would be interested in it too. This is the first important point to note, the set has really nice detail, but is certainly not robust, and definitely not for younger children (8 and over would be my recommendation). It is easy to set up and comes with a nice selection of trucks and even a passenger coach. It has extra track and a mat to assemble it on. You can then buy additional sets which fit into what you have. I would consider this a very reasonable price for what you get, and is an ideal starter train set. My son enjoys it, as do I!
