SodaStream Highland Fizz 500ml
SodaStream Highland Fizz 500ml
Offered by TAOS
Price: £3.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good clone of a favourite in the top half of Britain, 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some reviewers have thought this doesn't taste like Scotland's other national drink, but I think it acts as a very convenient and welcome substitute for that guilty pleasure. I am not sure it does have the actual iron content - which is the excuse that allows the indulgence - but it does taste just as good. Recommended for all those of us for whom it's a taste of happy things and childhood. It is a bit odd that it's clearl, but one gets over that.

4.0 out of 5 stars An attractive problem-solver, 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather smaller than I was expecting, although still a decent size so do not be put off by that, these nearly filled the window space I needed to cover to prevent prying eyes from a new neighbour while still letting in the light, and actually creating a view where the outlook, although sunny, was not pretty. I filled in the sides with the foliage and that worked perfectly well. Five stars in terms of ease of application and how attractively 3D these illusions are. My only real misgiving is that one doesn't need the plant pot, but I may find a use for this as well. Solved me a problem in an attractive and novel way, and I have since bought similar items for other windows or parts of the house, such as the bathroom, where I wanted to create an illusion of space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pretty and remarkably long-lasting, 9 April 2015
This lovely little bouquet has lasted exceptionally well and brought great pleasure to the recipient. The choice of blooms and design are delightful. Flower cards are an inspired idea and I have given quite a few - they have all been enjoyed but this one has had more praise than the rest put together. Really, really good value and a highly recommended purchase. Five stars to al concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of British silliness, 15 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From the team, surely on the way to becoming National Treasures, who brought us the glorious Horrible Histories, this piece of delicious silliness is a delight for all the family. The occasional rather more adult moments that some have noted will go right over children's heads, but this is really a harmless joy. This is quintessential British daftness, delivered by an ensemble who clearly love working together but are also professional enough that they do not let their own entertainment get in the way of the audience's. It survives the watching again test with flying colours, but that doesn't mean I'm not impatient for the second season which I believe will be on the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful and good value, 15 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are terrific little lamps - they give a good white light, are robust and stable and far less greedy of batteries than one might imagine (I've used mine quite a lot and have yet to change a battery). You can pay a lot more for identical items but these will do the job well at a very good price. Buy with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A kitchen gadget that really works, 15 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stonewave
Very good value for money and very easy to use - save a whopping amount compared with a similar item on shopping T.V. There is a small recipe booklet which will help guide timings, but you will soon figure out what works. It is suprising that something so simple actually does its job so well - it's a kitchen gadget you will use often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super and outstanding value for money, 15 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does exactly the same job as an item on shopping T.V. costing eye-wateringly more. These are super value for money and they really do work: gratin dauphinois in less time than it takes to slice the potatoes? What's not to love? Moist chicken from a microwave is another revelation. Do not pay more, these will do the job. There isn't a recipe book, but it isn't rocket science to figure out things like timings in your own microwave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ingenious, instant and long-lasting, 15 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second box of these blinds that I have bought, because they really do work. They are a super invention, put up in seconds but actually capable of lasting for years. They can be lifesavers when you need solutions in a hurry, but are very robust for longer use and I thoroughly recommend them. In terms of saving costs when you need window coverings in a hurry they recommend themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent set, 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An extremely useful and good value set. Tunisian/Afghan crochet hooks are not easy to come by, and this has a super range of sizes and a good length for larger scale or more complex pieces. I like using bamboo needles, especially for silkier yarns so am particularly pleased to have found this set. Recommended.


Time to Smell the Roses
Time to Smell the Roses
by Michael Hoeye
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars More wonderful story-telling, 21 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clever, charming and intriguing, the adventures of Hermux come to a close in this volume, which is very sad indeed. The author may have decided to quite while he was ahead, but he was so far ahead that it would take some going to let his audiences down. The whole idea of a mild-mannered watchmaker who finds a new life in adventures and investiagations - and is a mouse - would seem unbearably twee were it not for the fact that these stories are witty, cleverly-plotted, fast-paced and genuinely exciting. They are a triumph of story-telling for all ages (i.e. much to good to let children hog them). In this one the heroes and villains are present and correct - surely the dreadful Tucka is one of the great villainesses of modern fiction - and there are plenty of dastardly doings, nail-biting moments, and glorious characters (with spot-on satire) to keep anyone going. We can only hope that Hoeye might one day change his mind and revisit these hugely entertaining characters. In the meantime, enjoy what he has given us. The three previous volumes are every bit as good, so collect and cherish.
