Offered by Sunset Lighting (Bolton)
Price: £43.90

4.0 out of 5 stars Would recommend this shade for a smallish room, 25 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very attractive light. The only reason it has not got 5 stars is that it seems small even in a smallish room (3.5m x 2.1m). Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any similar sort of shade available in a larger size although the shade is not heavy.
There was a slight problem with the one I received but that was very promptly and easily dealt with by the retailer Robert Matthew with a very satisfactory outcome.
I would recommend the light but be aware of the size.

5.0 out of 5 stars One thing missing, 8 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Contains everything mentioned except the London tube map. Apart from that it is fit for purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good from the Really Good Oak Shop, 27 Aug. 2014
Tables are very well made and are substantial, the weight proving that they are made of oak. Delivery was as promised. They fit in well with other furniture as they are of a simple design.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sensitive and provocative portrayal of a real life story, 17 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Philomena [DVD] (DVD)
I feel I have to respond to Jude's profoundly offensive review of Philomena. Having read Martin Sixsmith's book and watched the film upon which it is based, I am frankly appalled that anybody should dismiss the film as a 'pile of pathetic anti-Catholic propaganda'. If the reviewer could bear to accept that the story is based on fact s/he would surely acknowledge, as many Catholics do, that the church has a case to answer, not least for its systemic cruelty to young women in its care and its wilful denial of information to those to whom it could have brought such comfort. The film reveals a simple but thwarted journey of discovery, albeit one that does raise issues regarding the past conduct on the part of the Catholic Church. Personally, I thought the performances of Coogan and Dench to be world class: but that, perhaps, is a matter of taste. However I am at a loss to understand the relevance of the utterly gratuitous reference to children being incinerated, and I am baffled by the abusive concluding reference to Philomena herself: …'full of hate'. The real life Philomena, as portrayed in the film and in real life, is a gentle and compassionate soul: unlike, by all accounts, the callous bigot calling her/himself Jude.
