5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, Easy to Clean and Likeable Design, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic little table. I'm so pleased with it. I bought it initially for doing jigsaw puzzles on (because those jigboard things cost the Earth and all you really need is a foldaway table) but now I use it for all sorts. It's extremely stable and even if you lean heavily on the very edge of it, it won't tip.

I also like the look of it - I got the green one - I notice the make is French and somehow it looks it, though I'm not sure why. Reminds me of warmer weather and sunshine... though given that I've seen nothing but rain for weeks at the time of writing, perhaps that's my imagination going into overdrive! Anyway, because it's plastic, it's brilliant to use outside. Good for repotting plants on too - so easy to clean.

In nutshell, I don't need another foldaway table but if I did, I would buy another one of these.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Comedy/Horror Jigsaw - Good Quality and Lots of Fun, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A colourful, challenging puzzle with lots of detail. It's funny too, with all sorts of cartoon-style comedy/horror goings on. The pieces are good quality and the finished picture's composition pleasing to the eye, which isn't always the case when you look at these very busy puzzles (some can appear a bit jumbled).

The picture is based around five overlapping magnifying lenses, presumably held by the unseen detective who is trying to figure out the mysteries of Vampshire Castle. And indeed, he's got his work cut out, for there are strange and supernatural events aplenty.

As a jigsaw, it's a nice mix of easy bits such as the writing at the top, and very hard bits - which for me were the illustrations of the magnifying glasses. I think anyone with a good sense of humour and a pit of patience would enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instantly comfortable - look great with skirts or trousers, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really loved these shoes. No wearing in required and they're good for all sorts of occasions - casual enough for free time and smart enough for work. I bought a size 9 and it was a perfect fit. (I am actually size eight and a half though, so if your feet are a large size nine, you might find them tight.)

The adjustable strap allows for both narrow and wide feet and the small heel is just enough to look more feminine than a flat.

It's hard to say how long they'll last of course, but for sandal-type footwear, they seem fairly sturdy. The sole is not so thin that it feels flimsy and while these are clearly low-cost shoes, they seem to be fixed together reasonably strongly.

The price was extremely good value and the free delivery marvellous. They came exactly when they were supposed to and I received a mesage on my phone to tell me how to track them if I wished.

All in all a great buy and well worth the full five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were absolutely delicious. They came sooner than expected and I couldn't be more pleased. Unlike the boxed varieties you find in the shops, these were melt-in-your-mouth fresh and I would recommend them to anyone. I notice one or two people moaning about the packaging - they come in a perfectly acceptable box made of card with a see through window and for goodness sake, at this price what on earth do you expect? (A diamond-encrusted tin no doubt!)

Anyway, as a different reviewer has already said, this is the best baklava I've eaten in England. It rivals the trays I used to buy from the local baker when living in Damascus. I shall definitely be ordering again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value and Easy to Follow, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first time I've had a go at formatting an ebook myself and I speak as someone with only a basic knowledge of html and an ability to use photoshop. I needed nothing further to follow this book. It answered all my questions and is organised into logical chapters. It contains links to a number of different templates for children's picture ebooks, then explains how to adapt them to your needs. I have seen many, more expensive books on this subject which are not as useful. For anyone wanting to learn how to create fixed layout picture books for Kindle, this is definitely a value for money read.

1.0 out of 5 stars You probably won't like this unless you've got a sweet tooth, 20 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the reviews about Symingtons having changed their recipe to a less tasty one, but thought I'd try it anyway. I found that those people who said it was too sweet were exactly right - it really does taste ever so sugary if you compare it to the old version. If you like sweet drinks you may enjoy it, otherwise I doubt it's for you. The levels of glucose are obviously to blame here - which is also disappointing on the health front. I mean let's face it, most of us are looking to consume less rather than more sugar these days.

It seems to me that Symingtons have upset quite a large number of their old customers with this recipe and have probably made a rather foolish mistake. Personally, I hope they change it back and until then I shall be giving it a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice chicory root coffee, 17 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with this pack of chicory - it came within the promised time and at a good price. This particular brand is clearly meant for the non-British market, but chicory is chicory - as far as I can tell, it has nothing whatever added to it and was delicious. A word to the wise for any chicory first-timers, if you are looking for instant chicory coffee, (the stuff you just spoon into a cup and watch dissolve), this is not for you. What you need here is a cafetiere or similar, and you should treat it as you would fresh coffee.

5.0 out of 5 stars value for money & convenient in little tubes, 16 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with this. Stuck two missing "feet" back onto my laptop very well indeed. As I think some other reviewers mentioned, the only thing to watch is that it can spurt when you first pierce it, so care is needed at that point. I wore gloves to be on the safe side. Once it's open it does the job well and as long as you fix the plastic top on properly, doesn't dry out. It's also great to have so many little tubes rather than one big one - means you can keep them in different places so you always have one to hand. All in all, and esp with regards to the low price, I'm happy to give it 5 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great film badly presented!, 16 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really love this film, but be warned that this version has been cropped down the sides to alter the aspect ratio, losing the original compositions. Clearly (on a TV) this type of film would normally have black bars at the top and bottom but the authors of this DVD have decided to do a hatchet job instead. It is a great shame to see this in such a carfully composed story packed with visual metaphor, so if you're thinking of buying "In the Heat of the Night" for your DVD collection I suggest you look for a copy which contains the full image and correct aspect ratio.

In short, it's a truly wonderful film shoddily and uncaringly presented... I don't know what the DVD authors where thinking but for shame!
