Germolene Antiseptic Cream With Local Anaesthetic For All The Family - 55g
Germolene Antiseptic Cream With Local Anaesthetic For All The Family - 55g
Offered by SMARTZPRICE
Price: £3.05

5.0 out of 5 stars Also excellent for slight burns and insect bites, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using it for over 50 years for minor skin injuries, slight burns and insect bites. The anaesthetic properties make it superior to other antiseptic creams. The antiseptic smell soon disappears once the cream has been applied, unlike for instance TCP.


The Secret Life of Trees: How They Live and Why They Matter (Penguin Press Science)
The Secret Life of Trees: How They Live and Why They Matter (Penguin Press Science)
by Colin Tudge
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very different approach to trees and very readable for the most part. I am an amateur botanist so enjoyed the book enormously but the general reader may find some parts a little boring. I found the life history of the fig tree especially fascinating.


Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Rugby But Were Too Afraid to Ask (Everything You Ever Wantd/Know)
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Rugby But Were Too Afraid to Ask (Everything You Ever Wantd/Know)
by Iain Macintosh
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite everything., 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it says, well almost. The book is a very good introduction to the game of rugby. It explains the basics which is what it is intended to do, however, as with any book of this kind it leaves many questions unanswered. I enjoyed the humorous style of writing.


The Emerald Planet: How plants changed Earth's history
The Emerald Planet: How plants changed Earth's history
by David Beerling
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the book on which the BBC series 'How to grow a planet' was based. The book is brilliant, there are very few book available for the lay person on the history of plants from pre-historic times. The book describes theories from the past on the evolution of plants and also present day theories which are being researched today. Lots of interesting information especially in climate change. Some parts of the book are a little difficult to comprehend for the non-scientist.


Pocket Magnifier - 20x Magnification, 21mm Loupe
Pocket Magnifier - 20x Magnification, 21mm Loupe
Offered by Sell 24x7
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great magnification, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a botanist and the 20x loupe is a great improvement on the 10x loupe I already have. The edges of the metal are a little sharp which may explain why the lens was cheap, however I am still pleased with it and have used it very many times.The little plastic storage case is very useful, it stops the lens getting dirty when not in use.


Out of the Woods But Not Over the Hill
Out of the Woods But Not Over the Hill
by Gervase Phinn
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Always enjoyable., 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read all Gervase Phinn's autobiographical stories and this was up to his usual standard. The stories are rather predictable but I still enjoy them, nevertheless. His writing techniques have developed over the years and now his style is faultless. I have actually seen him live many years ago and can always viualise him describing the incidents he has witnessed. The incidents are sometimes a little cheeky but always inoffensive .


How to Catch a Star Board Book
How to Catch a Star Board Book
by Oliver Jeffers
Edition: Board book

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for 2 year olds, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved by my 2 year old Grand-daughter. Her brother had the paperback version when he was 3 Years old but the board book version is more durable for younger children.


Judge Vista 14cm Milk Pan 1.0l
Judge Vista 14cm Milk Pan 1.0l
Offered by Harts Of Stur
Price: £16.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Well produced pans., 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the only pan of the Judge Vista range that my daughter did not have, she has now used it lots. These pans are very well-made and last for years. The glass lids do break if accidentally dropped on tiles floors as I found out; but can be purchased online.
The milk pan does not have a glass lid but others in the range do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a winner, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 2014 lives up to the standard of all previous editions. A brilliant reference book for all ages and all interests. This one was bought at the request of my 8 year old Grandson who loves it.


OXO Good Grips Box Grater
OXO Good Grips Box Grater
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Best grater found, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best grater we have found but the collection box is not big enough for grating large amounts, which it was probably not what it was really designed for. However, the box is brilliant for storing leftovers. The handle is very comfortable to hold unlike many graters that dig into your hand.
