Amazon.co.uk Gift Card Quick Gift
Price: £1,000.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Efficient means of gifting, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you know that the person you are giving this card to uses Amazon, or would benefit from an invitation to shop with Amazon, then this is an excellent way of giving. Simple to use, sensible instructions, flexible (as long as they DO want to shop with Amazon!). No cash to be lost in the post, no cheque needing to be cashed, just a system that works and costs you nothing, apart from the amount you decide to gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Living in Spain and missing out on the last series was well-frustrating. So I was glad I came across this boxed set of 1-4 series of Downton Abbey ... not only can I relive the few episodes that I did catch on Spanish tv, now I have been able to catch up on the second half of series 3 and all of 4. If there is anyone out there who does not know the series already, it is a must for all who love period drama, with well-researched historial aspects, wonderful costumes and settings, and excellent acting and casting. The story lines hold well together, with heart-wrenching tragedies interspersed with beautiful family moments and hilarious escapades. I really can't fault the series as a whole - wonderful entertainment and comentary on life in England from 1912 to 1922. I can't wait for Series 5 to come out!!
Not sure that the bonuses are worth the effort but a bit of background is always welcome! Perhaps a little expensive, but considering the number of viewing hours, I think it was worth it.
Arrived on time and well packaged. Vison and sound excellent.


More Than This - The Best Of Bryan Ferry And Roxy Music
More Than This - The Best Of Bryan Ferry And Roxy Music
Offered by Qoolist
Price: £4.88

4.0 out of 5 stars Good music, a blast from the past, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived on time, well packaged, as listed on the advert. Only drawback is that it is dating from 1995 and my modern laptop had some difficulty in recognising it ... after trying different methods of playback, it has finally been recognised, but still does not start up automatically on insertion into the CD drive.
Music is excellent, reproduction remarkably good. Mr Ferry lives on and continues to entertain ... great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoping for carpets of colour, 9 Jan. 2014

Well this Bumper Pack did arrive on time, and is as stated on the packet - huge quantity of bulbs. As to how they do, I am afraid we will have to wait till they come up and flower to know if we do get a Carpet of Flower Colour.

5.0 out of 5 stars As advertised but arrived late, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic MOUNTING Shaft Kit
No problems with this excellent kit - revitalised our 6+ year old breadmaker. Unfortunately there was some mix up with the order which should have arrived by 18 December, but when it didn't and I contacted Amazon about it, another was sent out (by registered post this time, at no extra cost to me) and it did get to us for New Year, though it would have been nice to have it for Christmas!! The actual product is as advertised with all the bits you need for fitting it and fitting it proved simple and straightforward too.


Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca?
Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca?

5.0 out of 5 stars More please - great first book, 25 Feb. 2013
A very good read and well put together for a first time writer. I enjoyed the book but was rather disappointed when I got to the end and wanted more ... more about the alpacas, more about the fleece market and shearing, more about the dogs, and the chickens (obviously the cats just look after themselves), more about the (wacky)locals, and in fact just MORE. I feel all readers of this book will be looking out for the sequel. Well done Alan, and when you have time get back to that donated laptop and give us some MORE! I should say that we upped sticks several years ago and moved to deepest, rural and tourist-free inland Huelva, and have never regretted it, but can certainly sympathise with all the ups and downs Alan and his lady have gone through. Living in Spain is no bed of roses at times, but well worth putting a bit of effort into it, as Alan and Lorna have done and described for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Pig chopping board, 22 Feb. 2011
Elegant and charming Percy the pig chopping board is a practical gift for any household - but may be thought to be too nice to really use as a board to chop on. Everyone loves it - great for serving to table! Just hope he is a sturdy as he looks and the wood doesn't split over time and usage.
