All Growed Up: What Breadboy Did at University

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great to see how the wee lad got on after his earlier adventures and experiences. A good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Wise a Bap" and read this!, 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A charming and humorous story, nicely told. Paperboy is well-worth reading, as are the two follow-up books, even if you have no connection to Northern Ireland. I don't know how he managed as a wee lad to fit so many activities into his day but I'm glad that he did!

I think we should hear more from Tony Macaulay and I'll certainly keep an eye out for any other books written by him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Steep postage for lightweight pyjamas, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the very lightweight fabric (more polyester than cotton) these turned out to cost a fortune to send abroad.

It is great to see larger sizes available for folk that need them but the postage charged to send them outside the UK is scarily high, and that's off-putting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and feminine - what more could a perfumista want?, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very wearable and pretty darned gorgeous. I can't fathom why such an attractive scent isn't valued more highly.

The Science of Discworld IV: Judgement Day: 4

4.0 out of 5 stars Little by little, gently improving one's understanding of Roundworld!, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good mental work-out is always guaranteed with all of the Discworld Science books. Great to read at bedtime, I found; just a bit at a time to allow the ideas to work on my mind.

2.0 out of 5 stars Long, long toe box in Geox, 19 Dec. 2014
I've noticed that Geox shoes tend to have very lengthy toe boxes, for some reason, which makes choosing the correctly-sized Geox shoes for one's feet very hit-and-miss.

Having given these "Energy Walk Sneakers" a try, they have confirmed this. There was a good 2.5 cm/1 inch beyond my big toes in each shoe. I can't fathom why their shoes come up so long! (Are they trying to convert us all to winkle-picker shoe fashions surreptitiously?)

Straight back in the box and straight back, I'm afraid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for the time-rich with the patience of a saint!, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Colour me Very Uncertain over this product. Adjusting the water amounts (going from a medium to a firmer pillow but not getting major comfort benefits) and endeavouring to get the air out and keep the water in (not terribly easy to do) have been pretty trying, to be honest.

I'm also concerned that the padded area on which one rests one's head may flatten out and break down sooner rather than later, simply because only one side of the pillow is being used all of the time and the water element prevents the usual pillow fluffing.

Somewhere out there is the elusive Perfect Pillow but this isn't it for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely freezing cooling towel technology., 13 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Muc-Off Cooling Towel (Automotive)
An absolute bargain compared to other "chilly" or "Arctic" branded towels, and it really does get cold.

I don't know how they do it but it is great that they do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprises galore, however unlikely it seems, 13 Aug. 2014
Intriguing and keeps you guessing. (I'm not at all sure that life there then would have been quite so permissive, for all the Swinging Sixties music name-checked in the story.)
