4.0 out of 5 stars Great t shirt but quite small, 4 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality, great design and colour. I thought the sizing chart would be really useful, but it turns out the chest size on the chart is wrong and actual size is listed in the product information. Frustrating as I would have ordered a bigger size if I had realised.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun top, just very large and thin fabric, 30 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fabric is soft, but very thin. Sizing is definitely not unisex. Luckily the very thin fabric has meant that I could easily take it in to make a smaller top. In the picture it looked quite short, this is an illusion, it is a long tee shirt but is just very wide. I love the look, but would have preferred a more robust top and a smaller size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, great looking, 21 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good quality t shirt and I have now bought 2. The fabric has a nice soft feel and I love the colours. The light blue is pale but not wishy washy, the red is a bright shade rather than deep red. I was worried about the sizing as I do not like close fitting tops and spent some time measuring my existing tops, this did not help as the cut matters, and I initially went for a larger size than I needed to. This is a shaped, skinny fit top but you do only need to go up one size for it not to look sprayed on. The length is generous.

4.0 out of 5 stars great looking, reasonably comfortable, 23 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are a good looking, neat and lightweight trainer style shoe. I have quite wide feet and these are a very comfortable fit. They are great for on my bike as there are no laces to get caught in the chain. I would not consider wearing them for running as there is very little padding and the sole is not very substantial. I do want them for casual wear as well as cycling so have put extra comfort insoles into the front of them. The back of the heel is very hard and I was worried that they would rub; whilst I can feel the heel when wearing them I have been pleased that they have not so far caused any blisters. The colour was accurate to the picture and the coral/pink stripes make them a bit special. I love the look of them and they are comfortable enough; and I will wear my other, more bulky, Skechers trainers for running.

1.0 out of 5 stars warning, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My mistake, I was naive and should have looked inside before buying. I already knew this author from Chalet School connections and had enjoyed her school story and crime story set at a convention for collectors of children's books and so bought this book without checking more carefully. Two of the stories were the sort of thing I was expecting, one about stolen book collections and another about a story writing competition. These were quite simplistic (perhaps inevitably since they were short) but an okay read. The other short stories and the main longer story were all about, or largely included abusive sexual behaviours. I, personally, would classify this book as pornography. When I bought it there were no reviews and it was grouped with books by Evelyn Smith and Dorothea Moore which I found misleading( I did not notice reference to spanking then, although that is quite mild compared to other parts of the book). If you are happy to read books about e.g. a man 'disciplining' women, then you may well enjoy the varied crime stories with some interesting twists but I have written this review to help anyone who might be caught out like I was.

This review is from: BBC iPlayer Radio (App)
I was listening to past radio programmes on BBC iPlayer when it stopped and told me I needed this app. It is much better, I can easily listen to live radio, see the schedules or listen to old programmes. One thing I really like is that I can search by category, and so find programmes I will enjoy, but might not otherwise have known about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cardigan, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only followed a very simple pattern before and this was my first go at following a more lacy pattern, but managed this and was very pleased with the result. The initial lacy band round the middle I found very hard to understand from the written instructions, and was about to give up, but when I looked at the cover picture it became much more obvious what to do. The rest of the pattern was fine. I did find I needed to make the length quite a bit longer, but this was no problem as you work down from the middle so I just kept going till it was the length I wanted. The pattern is very helpful in that it gives both stitch counts and actual lengths so it is easier to check you are going ok. The sizing was very accurate and people have complimented me on how I managed to make such a perfect fit, and I have had to admit I just followed the pattern and this was the size that came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hat, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this hat. The pattern is for a medium weight wool but so far I have made it in double knitting (using the hook sizes given in the pattern, the first rounds looked ridiculously lacy, but it ended up neat and very acceptable) and in a chunky wool (this needed less stitches and less rows, is bulkier and sits very comfortably). There is no lacy pattern to worry about so you can add/miss rows or increase or decrease stitches as you like.
The pattern is in American, but this is explained, and there are only 2 stitch types anyway (half treble and double, in English). The only difficulty I have had is the start. It begins with a magic circle which is not explained in the pattern. I looked it up in a book. You make a slipknot loop, then you work the stitches into the circle made by the slipknot. When you have the required number of stitches you pull the short end to close the circle up - it takes me a few goes to get the knot the right way round so that it is the short end you can pull. After that the pattern is very straightforward, although you definitely need a stitch marker to know when you have completed a round.
It uses 9mm, 6.5mm and 4.5mm hooks. I used alot less than a ball of 100g double kniitting wool to make it and just over a 100g ball of chunky wool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 23 Jun. 2011
Wow! There was just so much in this book that I wanted to remember. I started book marking pages but ran out of book marks. Rowan Williams is a great scholar but this book is written in a very accessible way for a non academic. It gave me so much to think about. It is very relevant for every day life in the world, not just in an isolated community.

"The Animals' Christmas and Other Stories
by Avril Rowlands
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, 23 Jun. 2011
I love this book. I read stories from it to my class every Christmas (lower Key Stage 2). I do not read all of the stories but I especially like the stories that directly link to the Bible story, and the way the same animal characters appear again in other stories. The children enjoy the humour and it is a fun way to retell the Christmas story from a different angle.
