In My Own Words:
Work in adult education, mostly as an e-tutor in Maths. I love the job and also the fact that I work from home.

I would rather post a good review than a bad one, but I do believe in honesty.

I keep saying I don't like sci-fi, but I adore Terry Pratchett's work.

I used to say I didn't like folk music... then I opened my ears and now there's nothing else that I'd rather listen to. I do not e… Read more

Interests
Wish I had more time to read and listen to music, love watching sports as well - particularly horse racing and athletics.
Not a great film buff, was a sit-com addict in the days when we had great sit-coms. Sometimes go a day or two without watching … Read more

The Gro Company Height Chart Sticker Set All Aboar&hellip by The Gro Company
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This review is of the 'All Aboard' height chart sticker set, which features a road design and vehicles. The height chart is suitable for young children of under 130cms in height, and approx 2-6 years of age, older children may well find the graphics too simplistic, stylised and 'babyish'.

Whilst the traffic design is arguably gender neutral, this probably isn't a look that will fit well into a Barbie-pink bedroom. The greens of the 'trees' and 'grass' are typical Sixties shades; the bright red buses and stripey red and white roadsign poles really stand out. Vehicles are the same greens and blue of the trees, grass and traffic signs, multi-colour printing being an expensive… Read more
Ultrasport Stretch Delight Women's Running / Cycli&hellip Ultrasport
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very well made lightweight cycling/running/fitness jacket with many useful and well -designed features. I requested the extra-large size as cycling jackets tend to be close fitting and at size 16/18 I felt that the large size might not fit, although the Amazon sizing chart shows XL to be size 20.

The XL size is a snug, slim fit and the L size would certainly have been too tight on me. At 5'9'' I found that the sleeves were just the right length for me, and I like the elasticated thumb cuff. This enables you to stop the sleeves and cuffs from riding up by tucking your thumbs through a hole in the soft elasticated fabric of the inner cuff. The outer cuffs of each sleeve… Read more
Medela Pre-Sterilised Pump & Save Breastmilk Bags by Medela
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These bags were trialled by a close family friend who is a nursing mother.

She found them generally well made, holding the bag half-full whilst changing breasts was a bit fiddly. The bags are supposed to stand upright but this was a bit tricky, whilst the plastic is relatively sturdy, it wasn't as easy as with a wide based freezer bag, for example.

The clear gradations on the bag make measurements easy, but so would tipping the milk into a graduated feeding bottle. You have to be careful to expel air to reduce the chance of the seal failing as the liquid milk expands with freezing.
Mums with a lot of surplus milk may need to use two bags, which makes these a… Read more
