Gluten-Free Girl: How I Found the Food That Loves &hellip by Shauna James Ahern
I loved this book. Whether you are Coeliac, gluten free or just interested in food, it will appeal. It's a memoir of the author's life, experienced through food. Later, as her diagnosis of Coeliacs is confirmed, she rediscovers food with a passion - her descriptions leaps off the page and you can see and taste the food as she's written it. There are helpful tips about dealing with life as gluten free which have been very helpful. There are recipes throughout the book - mostly non-baking recipes. If you're looking for a gluten free cake recipe book then this isn't for you. What it is an enjoyable book about the pleasures and discovery of food.

btw, ignore the 1 star reviewer… Read more

I like this one because it's at the right angle for drawing a knife from, since mine sits under my cupboards, it wouldn't be ideal or safe to have a block where the knives are totally upright.

I've been very happy with it. I'm only seeking to replace it now, because I put… Read more

Sureflap Microchip Cat Flap by SureFlap Ltd
Bought this because we had problems with other cats coming in. Easy to install and fitted the same hole in the door that our old one did. Even though the actual door is a little smaller, but the white plastic surround covered the bigger hole behind.

It does what it says and works well with the microchip and I wish we'd got it sooner as we had problems with our cat starting to spray because he was so stressed with other cats coming in.

I do have a couple of negatives though - if you have a large cat, say 5kg+ then they'll find this a squeeze (ours is 4kg and he goes through slowly as his backside just squishes through), also the lock release has a loud click which was… Read more
