Guess How Much I Love You

Edition: Board book
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Family favourite, 2 Dec. 2015

A book which I hope will be a part of my family for many years, and something I would love for my children to read to their children. Very touching and with lots of sentiment.

Ive tried a few Islay single malts and this one is my favourite. Not too peaty, just right. Very complex, lots of things going on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seriously good value, 2 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having never tried a Johnnie Walker blend before I was very suprised at how smooth and balanced this whisky tastes. I have only really tried a handful of whiskies and all of which have been single malts, mostly either Islays or sherried speysides. As this is supposed to be comprised of a mix of whiskies, one of which is Caol Ila I decided to give it a go. It was well worth it and a serious contender to any single malt within it's price range. Ok, it lakes the complexity of some malts, but it's smooth and very drinkable. I will definitely be coming back to this one.

A very good whisky and my new favourite. For under 50 pounds there are few other whiskies worth considering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent overall, 15 Nov. 2012
I am no stranger to club chicken sandwiches, but from the start I could tell this was different from most others.
The first 20 minutes of the CD talks you through relaxation techniques and encourages you to talk openly about your problems with your partner. Following this is a section on rythmn and breathing, which encourages you to improve your stamina.
Clearly no thought has been given to the interior as the back seats are practically impossible for installation of, say, a child seat. The radio is dull and the dashboard uninspriring. Its under the bonnet, however, where things start looking up.
Overall, I would give it a 8 of 10. If the battery life was a bit better and the maps application worked properly, then it would be a straight 10.

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty after a few months, 27 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this camera in March 2012, by July it had started displaying some problems. The first problem is that it will take a while to focus on objects, sometimes not managing to focus at all. The second problem and more serious is that after taking 5 or so shots in a row the camera will start to take pictures with a grainy heavily pixelated image. This can be cured by switching the camera off and on, but if you are taking multiple shots then you can easily end up with a whole batch of ruined photos. Amazon have offered a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars SR2 > GTA4, 18 Oct. 2008
Played saints row 1 and loved the online, single player was ok. Played GTA4 single player was ok, at best, online was terrible. (graphics and detail awesome though). Compared to these Saints Row 2 is the best of the lot. Gameplay is very good, level of detail is spot on. Graphics arent as good as GTA but better than saints row 1. Online is a bit of a let down up to SR1 as they have removed protect tha pimp and blinged out ride and introduced a game called 'strong arm' which is a multi changing online mode incorporating lost of mini games. There is also a deathmatch mode. The single player story mode is as varied as SR1 with lots of different game modes to increase your respect and then missions to take over areas and earn money. Things that let GTA4 down such as no base jumping, no planes, lack of side missions etc are all in this game. So if you are thinking of not getting it because its not as good as GTA then seriously give it a try. Once you get into it you will be hooked.

3.0 out of 5 stars looked promising but delivered little, 2 Oct. 2008
I bought this as i am a big fan of Star Wars, also the vidoe podcasts in the run up to the game hyped up the use of serious force power which sounded very appealing. Unfortunately the game was a big let down for me. Numerous glicthes and bugs are evident throughout the game. I have had retsart my xbox a number of times due toi being caught in glitch spots or other such things. The game itself is mediocre at best. True, the force powers are very good and the ability to level up your character how you would like is enough to keep you going to completion. The game is very short, completed it within a week, probably 10 hours of play. Resale value of the game is a joke, probably becuase everyone who has bought it now realizes how bad it is.
