10 Watch Display Box Case Faux Leather Flissy

I'm afraid that I had to return this case as it's not really worth the money. The exterior faux leather construction is good and solid, the clasp is easy to use and strong. Unfortunately, the cream plush cushions appear to have dirty edges which really doesn't look nice. But the plastic inserted into the lid is even more flimsy than I was expecting. It's a similar weight to a filing pocket. If the case had been £6 then it would have been accepatble, but for this price it sadly isn't.

I downloaded this book as summer holiday reading as I thought it would be a welcome light and frothy diversion. Well, it's certainly light and it's certainly frothy but it is excruciatingly bad. It is supposedly set in the UK and yet is full of American terminology and customs - people talk about pregnancy 'trimesters', men wearing suspenders - by which the author means means braces - and a wedding at which the groom wears a black tuxedo and which takes place in someone's back garden; which is of course not possible in the UK. The main characters are clearly based on American stereotypes rather than British so why not just set the book in the States. There really is no excuse for such a… Read more
