In My Own Words:
I live for part of the year in the UK but for as much as I can - usually about nine months - in Italy with my husband, two dogs and occasional visits from ourfamilies. I'm the proud owner of a website all about Italy, and my interests tend to be - yes, you giessed it - Italian based.

Interests
Italy and all things Italian; cycling (but only in good weather), dogs (particularly greyhounds and the Spinone Italiano, languages and reading.

Flymo Turbo 400 1500W Electric Hover Lawn Mower by Flymo
Bought to take to our farmnhouse in Italy which may sound a bit strange, but we have small areas of grass and several grassy banks and Italy does not do small(ish) machines. This machine has been excellent. The ground slopes and is very uneven but it copes with no problem, and is light enough for me to be able to stand at the top of a bank and control it as it mows downwards. Adjustable cutting heights so can be used to cut close or higher at different points in season.

Very robust, not phased by the odd twig or stone, and the motor shows no signs of straining. Easy to put together - I started using it within ten minutes of it arriving.

Blue Slim Camera Case for Canon IXUS 115 220 Power&hellip by VanGoddy

I bought this case specifically to protect my new Flip camcorder and it does exactly that. It's very light, so perfect for travelling, the camcorder fits into it very snugly and is held in place by a stretchy velcro tied band.

The case is hard and protects the machine far more effectively than the flimsy pouch it comes with. I'd be quite happy to pack this into hold luggage, secure in the knowledge the case would protect the camera from damage.

Small enough to fit into a handbag or pocket, light enough not to add to luggage weight, easy to unfasten for quick access to the camera - ideal.I love it!

Don't hesitate to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 30 Nov 2009
Like the colour, like the weight (very light), like the fact that it's pretty robust (it must be, it's survived in our house) and like the company's service which was very fast and very helpful.

It was instantly recognised by my Samsung netbook (which uses Windows 7) and now comes everywhere the netbook goes. Plays things my laptop (Sony using Vista) drive doesn't like too, so it's extremely versatile.

It's a bit more expensive than others but definitely worth it for the performance it gives.
