A Brief History of the Private Life of Elizabeth I&hellip by Michael Paterson
I must firstly state that I am bias because I absolutely adore our Queen and Royal family but here goes...Paterson has written a touching and truthful history of Queen Elizabeth.

LEGO City 3178: Seaplane by LEGO City
Okay so I am not an expert on LEGO but I found this was way too small for the price it paid. I guess this will teach me to purchase late Christmas presents from Amazon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of remixes, 25 Mar 2013

Plently of tunes, including half the CD filled with remixes which weren't simply a different back song but generally good. Stand out song for me is Soul killing with it's beat and happy context.
