The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse
The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse
by Mac Barnett
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.09

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Fairy Tale, 16 Oct. 2017
The Wolf, The Duck, and the Mouse is an imaginative fairy tale.

The mouse seems to be facing disaster at being swallowed by a wolf, but instead that is where the adventure begins as the mouse meets the duck who is happily living in the wolf's stomach. The duck and the mouse are soon having a wild party as the duck says "I may have been swallowed but I have no intention of being eaten".

I think you can read different meanings into the story like even when it seems you are in a terrible situation, it may not actually be that bad at all! Although literally you are unable to live in the belly of the beast a little bit of imagination and you can transform yourself into a whole different world.

Have fun by dreaming a little.


WD-40 BIKE 44687 100 ml Wet Chain Lubricant - Grey
WD-40 BIKE 44687 100 ml Wet Chain Lubricant - Grey
Offered by Darcol UK
Price: £5.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bike Lubricant, 15 Oct. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ride a cyclocross bike across muddy surfaces and like to apply a healthy bit of lubricant to keep my gears running smoothly.

I usually use Kettenol but I have tried out this WD40 lubricant out on the wet roads and it does a decent job too. I will definitely be using this bottle down to the last drop.

The WD40 brand name is one you trust to remove the squeak from squeaky doors so I am confident in using this in my bike too.

Jaybird Run Wireless Headphones for Running (Bluetooth 4.1, Omni-Directional Mic, 4+8 Hours Of Battery, Sweat-Resistant, Comfort-Fitted Earpieces, Skip-Free Music) - Jet, Black
Price: £169.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wireless Earphones, 15 Oct. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A tiny set of running wireless ear buds.

The great thing about running with these is being able to run without wires around your head or dangling down to your phone.

The instructions to set up and use the headphones is easy and works smoothly. The sound out of the earphones is pretty good and they sitvsecurely on your ear.

An impressive bit of gear. Get running.

Wilson Beginner Complete Set, 9 golf clubs with cart bag, Women's (right hand), Stretch XL, White/Grey/Purple, WGG157554

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Starter Golf Set for Women Right Handed, 15 Oct. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A perfect starter package for the woman golfer.

I would always recommend that you try and test out a set of golf clubs before you buy them but if you are giving them as a gift then this is not always possible.

You get all the basic clubs, with head covers, and a bag. Although golf courses will hire out trolleys it is a good idea to get a second hand trolley as it is a long way around most courses.

Wilson is a recognised quality brand so they would look to last a long time if kept dry after use.

The driver is Titanium, the fairway wood has a graphite shaft, and the irons are made of stainless steel.

My wife will be looking forward to her first lesson looking like a professional, well almost.


Sugru Mouldable Glue - Family-Safe | Skin-Friendly Formula - Black, White & Grey 8-Pack
Sugru Mouldable Glue - Family-Safe | Skin-Friendly Formula - Black, White & Grey 8-Pack
Offered by Sugru Direct
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to Repair. Ingenious Mouldable Glue, 14 Oct. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great product for repairs and improvements to almost anything. Just give it a go.

The instructions are easy to follow. Open the pack, rub into a ball, apply to the object to be repaired, and then leave to set.

I have just repaired an old pair of shoes where the inside was rubbing against my socks and putting holes in them. I used the black mouldable glue that matched the shoe colour and applied it to the inside to create the bond and leave a smoothe finish. Brilliant result! I can use the shoes again.

Recycle, repair, and reuse. Sugru can help you save money and be environmentally friendly by not throwing stuff away.


Joseph Joseph Nest Colanders - Green
Joseph Joseph Nest Colanders - Green
Offered by Gimmick World
Price: £20.86

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Colanders are Great, 7 Oct. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really like Joseph Joseph products as they are usually innovative and always useful.

The colanders are bigger than standard sieves so they can probably fit in your vegetables that you have cooked. The green color is an interesting change from the usually silver bowls and utensils that you tend to find in the kitchen. The triangular shape allows for easy pour corners rather than food randomly spilling everywhere.

If you are needing colanders then look no further. Get Joseph Joseph.


ELEMIS BIOTEC Skin Energizing Combination Day Cream - Skin Activating Day Cream 30ml
ELEMIS BIOTEC Skin Energizing Combination Day Cream - Skin Activating Day Cream 30ml
Price: £75.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Day Cream, 7 Oct. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An expensive brand and the results would not seem to justify the really high price.

An interesting bottle with two side by side pump action tubes held within a single container. The fragrance is very light but some people prefer fragrance free to avoid possible reactions, so do try on a spot of skin first. The directions for use are that you massage two pumps into the skin to activate.

I gave this to my wife and she says that she did not feel a vast improvement, but she was happy to keep the bottle and use it. The trouble is that you need to spend a lot of money on something that you might not like.

This brand also do an expensive night cream if you loved this product.


ManCave Natural Originals Gift Set
ManCave Natural Originals Gift Set
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Man Get Clean Face, 4 Oct. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I received a ManCave gift set last year and I really liked the products which include a face wash, face scrub, and a moisturiser.

Although I am not a heavy user of moisturiser, a blob spread about on my face on a cold morning does wonders for my skin. I usually only scrub my face at the weekend to get my skin glowing again.

The only strange element is the name, ManCave, but nevertheless a good gift set.

Get clean.


FURREAL FRIENDS Chatty Charlie The Barkin Beagle Toy
FURREAL FRIENDS Chatty Charlie The Barkin Beagle Toy
Price: £46.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A Canine Buddy, 30 Sept. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the choice for you if you do not want to go outside when it is raining for a walk with your dog, do potty training with a young puppy, or be woken up by barking in the middle of the night. Instead spend £40 and get a fluffy dog that will fall to sleep really quickly, not poop everywhere, and be a friend to your young one.

The dog barks and then translates the bark. You can scratch its back which Charlie enjoys. Plus the ears twitch.

My young daughter loves this furry friend but dogs are not just for birthdays.

A real puppy teaches you responsibility, gives you exercise, and is unpredictable.


Sugru Mouldable Glue - Original Formula - New Colours 8-Pack
Sugru Mouldable Glue - Original Formula - New Colours 8-Pack
Price: £10.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugru to Repair Not Throw Away, 30 Sept. 2017
A very interesting product as I work in a company that deals with polyurethane and neoprene moulding of connectors to underwater cables. The list of feats for this product is very impressive with claims that it bonds to; steel, ceramics, glass, wood, aluminium, and some plastics and fabrics.

The instructions for use are very clear:
1. Wash hands
2. Open minipack
3. Roll in fingers, or gloves if you have sensitive skin
4. Apply and form to clean surface
5. Leave to cure for 24hrs at 3mm deep when ambient temperature 21C
6. After use clean your hands with a dry tissue and wash thoroughly with warm soap

Remember that once the sachet is opened and you have made use of the amount needed you can not then keep the left overs to use again at another time in the future.

The suggested uses are anything from repairing items, improving grip, softening sounds from objects, to improving comfort. With the rubber being heat proof, flexible, and tactile, the uses are seemingly endless.

Recently I have repaired the plastic holder for the cutlery in the dishwasher that had big gaps in it after the network of bars had been broken. I now have a repaired holder with red strands in it where it was returned to full working order. Even better the dishes are washed thoroughly as the knives do not go through the holder and catch the washing blades.

The 8 pack has mini sachets of 5 grams each in different colors. The packet comes with a 3-6 month use by date. But it will probably work after this date for a few months at least, just not guaranteed.

Keep this handy and it might just be the solution you did not know you had. Gr
