5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect to highlight a showy plant., 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want the plant to be the feature and the pot to accent rather than overshadow it this is an excellent choice. The fibrecotter planter is practical, relatively light and sturdy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely Christmas focal point!, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 90cm Galaxy Fibre optic tree
We purchased the 90cm tree since space is at a premium in our cottage, There is a choice of light effects so you can choose the one that best suits your taste, chasing at a choice of speed, fading or static. We are very pleased with it as it is a most attractive focal point in our living room. Much more tasteful, in my opinion, than some of the similar fibre optic trees overdressed with baubles and despite being more expensive.looking rather cheap and tacky. I would certainly recommend this tree and would imagine the larger versions would be equally attractive.

As always Philip's have produced a street atlas that covers all the areas, towns and villages that you need in good, clear format and to a sensible scale.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too sketchy, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very disappointed with this, expecting better of a rough guide. There were too many places that weren't covered including
Hay-on-Wye. The beauty of the peak district lies not only in the countryside and the wealth of footpaths and walker's trails but also in the many villages and small towns that provide such a colourful and vibrant community feel to the whole area. These smaller but interesting places barely get a mention.

Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, attractive cushion cover., 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice item to go with the Harvard curtains or to use individually but beware the size - too big or rectangular for most cushions and not big enough to use a pillow - best buy the cushions with the covers unless you happen to have some in this size and shape.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good vocabulary tool., 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like being able to pick and choose the topics as and when I wish. This facility means I can use this dictionary alongside any Russian language book or course. The visual are very good as an aide memoire. What I would like, however, is an audible pronunciation guide just to make sure the stress is right, so important in Russian.

3.0 out of 5 stars This really needs a teacher, 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the best language book I have come across by a long chalk. Too much information on why to learn Russian clogs the beginning. I already have the book. I obviously have decided to learn Russian and want to get on with it. This book might well work in an evening class with access to a teacher or Russian speaker every so often but to the lone user it is somewhat clumsy and as a result it is difficult to keep going. The sense of progress is slow and the order of presentation questionable. I also have other books and cds and as an extra prop I have a use for it but not as a main learning tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astoundingly good value for money, 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have already read any of George Orwell's novels you will know why I have rated this collected works with 5 stars. Everything is here from the fairy tale satire of "Animal Farm", the well known dystopic novel "1984" to the wonderful autobiographical "Burmese Days" and "Voyage to Catalonia" not to mention the observations of very ordinary lower middle class life in "Keep the Aspidistra Flying". Every one a winner and written in Orwell's very direct, readable style. If you haven't read any Orwell, or stopped after the school rendition of "Animal Farm", now is your chance to find out what you have been missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 21 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very comfortable and well made full length waterproof. No more soggy knees! It is well designed with an inside pocket useful for a mobile or cash/card and has adequate room in outside pockets for keys or other small items. It is true to size but cut generously enough to allow for a thick pullover in cold weather. It is also lined and can be opened up at the back to use when riding if required. The hood is also sensibly proportioned and in the recent wet weather has proved its worth by keeping me dry from head to foot. The choice of colours is good. I already have the brown one and may well go back for another in a different shade. The company responded quickly to my order and service was impeccable.
