Nokia 105 SIM-Free Mobile Phone - Black
Nokia 105 SIM-Free Mobile Phone - Black
Offered by GSM PRO
Price: £15.80

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay, 22 Sept. 2015
This is just ok- not a patch on my old Nokia 1100 in terms of ease of use. On the 105 it is almost impossible to see the screen in bright light; and the buttons are not as good. Battery is excellent and as a spare it would be fine. A shame Nokia have not managed to repeat their excellent build quality of the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but some downsides, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have noted- these are in most ways brilliant gloves which spoil you for any others- they are supremely comfortable and it's great to have leather which remains flexible. However they are not cheap and there are a couple of issues, hence 4 not 5 stars. They leak yellow dye onto the hands and nails when wet- to be fair, I did not have this problem with the first pair I bought. But since one reason to wear gloves is to keep hands looking reasonable for work- it's not great to look like a heavy smoker with stained nails. And like most gardening gloves they give way at the fingertips rather too quickly, so I have had to replace an otherwise perfectly good pair earlier than I would have hoped. This is with normal use.
The seams go, and the leather itself also wears through. If gold leaf could sort out these aspects- they would be perfect.

Excellent- well made, works well, unobtrusive against dark floor..I was almost put off by the name- it is not in fact any more 'compact' than most loo brushes, as far as I can tell.


Wolf-Garten KS2K Fixed Hand Tool Weeding and Planting Knife
Wolf-Garten KS2K Fixed Hand Tool Weeding and Planting Knife
Price: £8.70

5.0 out of 5 stars cannot garden without it, 21 April 2015
absolutely fantastic. one piece of gardening equipment I would never be without. ideal for clearing stone walls, weeding, between paving slabs.. lasts for ever (blade eventually wears against stones, but it still works, and the handle never budges); excellent value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, but a tight fit, 21 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice boots, but as others have found, very tight to get on [and moderately tight when on- I have wide feet and would need half size up].

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive, 29 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very impressed by this- clear and detailed, without being too daunting. As someone more at ease with words than maths, I found this managed to make statistics comprehensible in a way which is rare- I'd recommend it for MSc level and above.

Price: £30.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 29 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace an old reel- does the job, though it is still not a very good design and the assembly instructions are terrible. On the plus side it is good to be able to replace just the reel, as our hose still has years in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars first class - can't be beaten, 20 Jan. 2014

You can't beat a good Rankin- and this is seriously good. Superb writing. Rankin on top form- and Rebus back too- a real treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars delightful read, 30 Dec. 2013
I read this in one sitting having had it for Christmas- a delightful, charming read, well-written, and I would strongly recommend it especially, if, like us, you know the area. I agree with another reviewer that not naming the place is odd as it is so clearly identifiable as the Tan Hill inn in Arkengarthdale- I can only assume this must be for legal reasons and to allow scope for artistic licence. Well worth a read.
