In My Own Words:
I'm female, a retired teacher and my pen-name means 'Truth teller' in Greek. I try to pursue truth, no doubt in my own flawed way! I'm a wife and grandma and am interested in a dilettante manner in a number of topics, as listed below. Reviewing books is a bit of an obsession, though possibly born of now having the time to be slightly bored!

Philosophy, religion, classic literature, whodunnits, British films, writing, shopping, design.

Cheap Dog Poo Bags, EXTRA STRONG, Pack of 100 by Doggybog
I like extra strong doggy bags because, unsurprisingly, I'm not fussed on my fingers going through them at the wrong moment. I like cheap bags because, like most people, I watch the pennies. I tried to combine these two requirements when I bought these bags; they are OK, but I suppose I'd have got stronger ones had I paid more. I'm surprised to read in other reviews that they are very strong - they are not rubbish but I've definitely used stronger. They are, however, good value for the price and they are quite large. I like them, but I'll decide after I've used them for a while whether to buy them again.
Munchen Pull Out High Grade Stainless Steel Chrome&hellip by munchen
5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money ..., 23 July 2014
When I had my new kitchen, I bought some pull-out drawers from my kitchen supplier. They were very expensive, but wonderfully helpful. These drawers are a lot cheaper and seem of reasonably comparable quality. The basket is strong and the runners work effectively, though they are not quite as smooth as the more expensive ones. They could do with fitting instructions, but since I'm getting my kitchen fitter to install them, it doesn't matter to me. I'm a real convert to the value of this kind of drawer, and will be buying more as soon as I can afford it!
VonShef - 5 Tier Spice Rack Chrome Plated (Easy Fi&hellip by VonShef
I'm very pleased with this rack, which holds a lot of fiddly little items, making them easy to find, and it sits nicely on the back of my pantry door. I'm contemplating buying another one. I think it is reasonably well-made and is good value for money. It doesn't hold anything much larger than a spice jar because of the depth of the shelves, but is also suitable for things like food colourings, bicarbonate of soda, cake decorations, etc. The screws provided with it are long enough to go right through a cupboard door, if one is not careful, and my husband used washers to prevent this from happening.
