We Had Some Laughs
We Had Some Laughs
by Dan Waddell
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.88

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly lovely book for any father and any son, 1 July 2016
This review is from: We Had Some Laughs (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is simply a lovely book. Dan Waddell's insight into his famous father Sid, the voice of darts for 30 years, is full of love, affection and humour. It tells the story of a relationship that was blessed with laughter right from the start and looks at the career and personality of this tremendously clever but totally down to earth Northerner. Dan does not shy away from his father's faults but he presents them with understanding and affection. At times I was convulsed with laughter while at others I was wiping away tears because I found myself really caring about this man and his son. Very few books will make you feel as warm as this one and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any Dad or any son. It will make you look at your own relationships with more gratitude and encourage you to try to be as close as Dan was to this marvellous one off of a man.


Kisisi (Our Language): The Story of Colin and Sadiki (New Directions in Ethnography)
Kisisi (Our Language): The Story of Colin and Sadiki (New Directions in Ethnography)
by Perry Gilmore
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An academic work of invaluable insight, 1 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent academic book for anyone interested in the development of language. The writer, Perry Gilmore, watched, listened and wrote about the entirely new language that her American son developed with his Kenyan friend whilst the family were in the country on a scientific research project. The development of the language is put in to a socio-cultural and anthropological as well as linguistic context and is a very good if challenging read. My one piece of advice to prospective readers is to read it only if you are already familiar with the field of linguistics. Otherwise it will almost certainly be impenetrable. For researchers and students this is a valuable and fascinating case study.


Rapesco Skippa Full Strip Stapler, 20 Sheet Capacity Uses Staples 24/6 and 26/6 mm - Silver
Rapesco Skippa Full Strip Stapler, 20 Sheet Capacity Uses Staples 24/6 and 26/6 mm - Silver
Price: £8.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact and effective, 1 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This stapler is perfectly functional and looks good. The action of the stapler is smooth and trouble free, with the suggested 20 sheet limit seemingly within its capacity on normal A4 pages from a writing pad. There is nothing to take issue with, particularly at its current price of £8, although it's RRP could be seen as a little steep.


Ultrasport Women's Medium Impact Racer Back Functional Sports Bra - White, Small/Medium
Ultrasport Women's Medium Impact Racer Back Functional Sports Bra - White, Small/Medium
Price: £10.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable but unsupportive, 1 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this product through Amazon Vine to give to my daughter to try out. She does sport 4-5 times a week and has three other sports bras so she was well placed to review this product. After a couple of sessions she said that she was not going to wear it any more. On the plus side, she said that it was the most comfortable sports bra she had ever worn. On the minus side, however, she said that it was the least supportive that she had ever worn. Now clearly this is only one person's experience of this product and the reasons for the lack of support could not really be ascertained, but I would advise anyone thinking of buying this or a similar product to get it from a physical shop, at least the first time, to check the fit.


Look Good Feel Better Blush Brush
Look Good Feel Better Blush Brush
Price: £8.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality product for an excellent cause, 17 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First thing to say is that my daughter found this really easy to use. It is extremely soft and the brush can hold a larger than usual amount of make up. It applies very smoothly without any trouble and gives the face an even covering leaving it feeling very soft. Finally, and to my mind most importantly, this product is produced by a charity that provides free help to teenagers and young women coping with the effects of cancer. So you have a quality product that helps other people. It's a win-win situation.

Parker Sonnet Chiselled Silver Gold Plated Trim Ball Pen Medium Nib - Gift Boxed
Parker Sonnet Chiselled Silver Gold Plated Trim Ball Pen Medium Nib - Gift Boxed
Price: £205.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A pen for the discerning writer, 17 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As you would expect from the Parker Pen company this pen is excellent in terms of writing quality. It glides across paper and card with ease. However, the real secret is the attention to detail in the presentation. With a lovely presentation box to start off the overall effect of an almost heirloom like quality the pen itself is simply lovely to hold. It is beautifully designed with a tasteful check pattern and gold detailing. In all respects it is a quality writing implement.


Bike Lights LED by Camden Gear VIVID XVI Light. 200 Lumens Bright, Easy to Fit LED Bicycle Lights. Front and Back
Bike Lights LED by Camden Gear VIVID XVI Light. 200 Lumens Bright, Easy to Fit LED Bicycle Lights. Front and Back
Offered by QA Pro
Price: £29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Dazzling set of lights., 22 Mar. 2016
Make no mistake, these lights are fantastic! The moment you take them out of the box it is clear that they are robust, extremely well made and designed by a regular cyclist. Everything about them says quality, and that's before you start using them. You will never have to worry any more about whether you will be seen. The back light gives clear flashing or steady red lighting alerting cars behind to your presence in a way that makes you feel automatically more secure. Then we come on to the big front light which gives X-Files levels of illumination! Going through a tunnel it lit the whole thing up. No chance of coming across someone in a blind spot or in the shadows because there won't be one. The only very slight drawback is that the light is a little bit of a stretch for the linings of some pockets, unlike the price for this set which won't give anyone's pockets any trouble at all.


Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 1 User - Licence Key (PC)
Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 1 User - Licence Key (PC)
Offered by Wiziwoo Limited
Price: £9.76

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective and unobtrusive, 29 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Kaspersky is a very familiar name in Internet Security and one I have used in the past. The set up is relatively easy from the CD in the pack that comes with the user key. However, this clearly won't work on newer laptops without a DVD drive and the CD itself needs almost instant updating from the Kaspersky website. (Perhaps future packages will be code only via email that will be set up via the website.) As you would expect from this product it is very effective at dealing with viruses etc and does so in an unobtrusive manner. Once it is set up you can happily surf the net without worry.


Go Stationery Owls A5 Notebook - Pink
Go Stationery Owls A5 Notebook - Pink
Price: £7.50

4.0 out of 5 stars A wise choice for a notebook, 29 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This notebook has a very attractive cover featuring cute owls in pink, which means that even in this gender neutral age it is aimed specifically at the female student market. It has a robust elastic strap which would easily hold loose papers in place. The lines on the pages inside are well spaced. All in all, this is a good functional notebook with the benefit of a visually appealing cover.
