5.0 out of 5 stars Wrens like it, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stuffed it in the hedge in autumn and the wrens found it the spring. One happy family raised and one happy family watching.


Mintons Good Food Pre-packed Organic Rye Flakes (Pack of 10)
Mintons Good Food Pre-packed Organic Rye Flakes (Pack of 10)
Price: 13.89

2.0 out of 5 stars Rough quality, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The amount of husks in with the flakes is really off-putting. I am having to rinse the flakes to get the husks to float off the top before I can use them as finding them in your mouth is pretty unpleasant. There is a lot of dust in with the flakes too. Dubious quality really, not what I expected from this supplier. Also two of the bags were split when I unpacked the box. The taste is good but not worth the hassle for me so I won't be buying again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very high quality, finely milled flakes. Very clean, cook quickly and taste as they should. Much easier than trying to cook the whole seeds which I have difficulty getting the timing right and tend to burn or under-cook. Well packed. Would buy again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes a good oat alternative, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buying these in bulk (10 x 500g bags) keeps the price down and although it seems a lot if you are trying them as an alternative to oats I have found they don't go quite as far as rolled oats, so you may use more.
The only reason I have kept a star back is that the flakes did contain quite a bit more dust than I've had from another well-known organic brand. But the taste and quality is fine. They arrived quickly and well boxed/bagged too.


Puppy Love Pet Water Bottle, 750 ml
Puppy Love Pet Water Bottle, 750 ml
Price: 15.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're prepared to carry this bottle upright then it's ok but it will leak from the top when on its side. Actually my dog can't get the hang of licking it so I've given it away. She just doesn't like the noise from the metal ball and she isn't normally nervous of noise. Back to carrying a bowl!

Wahl Super Taper Hair Clipper
Wahl Super Taper Hair Clipper
Offered by Hero Deals
Price: 45.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid performance, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had a few other clippers, some Wahl, some not but this is a lovely solid piece of equipment. It cuts nice and evenly with no ridges. I've kept a star back as it is quite heavy and maybe vibrates a bit (even with the power adjusted) but if you need a reliable clipper then its well worth the extra money.


Sistema Porridge Bowl
Sistema Porridge Bowl
Price: 4.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Whoosh!, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A one-portion size, good fitting lid and a nice solid handle. BUT even made with just water I have found it very difficult to stop the porridge spouting from the vent in the lid. Saying that, porridge will boil over in most dishes if you fill them too full so be very careful with your portion size in this. It washes easily enough but you'll need to pop out the vent cover to get at the boiled over porridge. Nice idea but doesn't quite work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much magic, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The writer tries too hard on the magic invention side. There is too much of it which obscures the characters and loses the story. A little less fantasy and a bit more substance would have improved it greatly. I gave up a third of the way in.


Schizophrenia For Dummies
Schizophrenia For Dummies
by Jerome Levine
Edition: Paperback
Price: 13.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the UK market, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first couple of chapters give a fair insight to the condition if that's all you need but as Dummies books go this is quite poor. It's really for the U.S. market so don't buy if you live elsewhere as all the care and welfare references relate to there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Warm but wearing badly, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a long time Bridgedale user I am sorely disappointed in the way these socks are wearing. Yes, they fit well, are comfortable and are very warm but after a couple of outings and washes look like I've had them for years. Thumbsdown to to Bridgedale this time, I expected better.
