Pirate Things to Make and Do (Usborne Activities)
Pirate Things to Make and Do (Usborne Activities)
by Rebecca Gilpin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift for a four year old Pirate addict., 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A hit with my pirate crazy four year old nephew. He has spent many hours with his mum and my mum making the stuff in this book. I bought him it for Christmas and wrapped it with a big pot of pva glue and a packet of coloured paper and card. The stuff is quite easy to make with a bit of supervision and it has kept him and my family entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book and all the characters in it, 18 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was really impressed by the writing style of this book. It was very similar to Kate Atkinsons style of writing. The story was set in the heatwave of 1976 and dealt with the disappearance of a neighbour and the unraveling of a dark incident from the past. A beautifully detailed observation of the various neighbours living on a quiet street and their secrets. A very talented author.


Persiana: Recipes from the Middle East & Beyond
Persiana: Recipes from the Middle East & Beyond
by Sabrina Ghayour
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A really great selection of delicious and easy Middle Eastern style recipes., 17 Jan. 2016
This is a great recipe book. Many of my recipe books gather dust on the bookshelf but every now and then I find one that is invaluable - where I work through most of the recipes and cook them again and again. This is one of the greats. The recipes are fairly straightforward, but tasty and a bit different. My family especially love the rice recipes, the salads which are quite fruity and the Eastern Style Focaccia. Some require authentic middle eastern ingredients like orange flower water, sumac etc but it's worth hunting these down as they are used in multiple recipes through the book.

After struggling to get birds interested in my feeders I did a bit of googling and decided to try sunflower hearts. They absolutely love this stuff. I get a huge range of birds in my garden now - tits, finches, robins etc . I have three feeders which they empty in a couple of days.

Christmas Magic Painting Book
Christmas Magic Painting Book
by Fiona Watt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift for small children...and some adults too, 8 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book.it comes with brush attached. Just dip in water and start painting. The pictures and colours are lovely and it's made with good quality paper and cardboard protective sleeve so things don't get too messy. I bought 4 of these for Christmas presents for 4 to 6 year olds and kept on back for myself! This could be the next craze after adult colouring books. Extremely soothing and addictive.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit boring, 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I gave this book to my business man who is a nice person, who gets a bit trampled on sometimes. However it is still gathering dust on his bedside table. I haven't noticed any great change in his negotiation skills yet!

Maybelline New York Super Stay 24 Hour, Crystal Shock
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Long lasting, 29 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It does what it says on the packet....yes it really lasts 24 hours. It's a bit odd and wet when you put it on and when it dries it leaves your lips feeling quite dry. However once on it really does last much longer than normal lipstick.
