4 Tier Adjustable Shelf Bathroom Organiser by Betterware
I'm pretty chuffed with my organiser. It's not super-fancy but it's simple, smart and clean looking, and does the job.

I needed it to go in the corner next to my wash basin because the walls are plasterboard and I wasn't keen on trying to get fixings to stay in the right place so that I could have corner shelves that didn't fall off the wall.

I've previously read Tony Woodward's second book, and loved hearing him speak too, and so I was fairly sure I would enjoy this book. How right I was!

I'm not an aviator but I have done some paragliding, so I could appreciate some of the technical problems and general frustrations of flying a small craft. But even if you know nothing about flying at all, it won't prevent you from laughing out loud many times while reading this book.

In relating his memoir, Woodward is so frank, honest and ingenuous that you can't help but like him. Even though by his own admission he does some damn silly things with the aircraft he buys so hastily, he still manages to be… Read more
