Superb. Nadiya is just such a full in your face, sparky character with her husbad and family you're not sure whether you'd like to hug or give a good kicking. A great read.

Price: £7.14

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic supplement., 14 Mar. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Orange disguises that awful fishy taste only a little, but just enough to persuade you to take it. My mother would make me drinkmorange juice with cod liver oil as a child as I really hated cod lver oil. Really traditional and probably the best source of Omega fish oils. Ideal for adults with bone and joint issues. Smallish bottle for something you would take everyday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Readable, 12 Mar. 2017
This review is from: The Reunion (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Maeve Binchy territory.
The actual reunion is between two estranged sisters, and the son of one who, was adopted out after being born illegitimately after a rape by a close friend of her parents . The third main character in this is the mother, and a real gorgon to be sure. One of those women everyone knows in some capacity, and you will love to hate.

Written in a very simple narrative style, although I found the liberal use of italcs absolutely infuriating. This woman has done a lot of highlighting of texts in her time, and cannot break the habit.

Interesting. A fearsomely loathsome character to really hate with venom. Enjoyable laid back read for the beach or solitary rainy afternoon.


Midnight Blue
Midnight Blue
by Simone van der Vlugt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed reading this., 11 Mar. 2017
This review is from: Midnight Blue (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fascinating background on Blue Delft which is popular to this day. Enjoyable tale, which although informative, has some false and occasionally jarring notes about social and normal sexual moral mores in 16th century Europe. This reads like a translation. Pretty good but occasionally feels a but stiff, which considering the immense popularity in the authors homeland sort of indicates that the author's own style is actually far more impressive and fluid. The tale of a young country girl climbing up the greasy pole of women entering any professional high skilled career is engrossing, and although improbable is not impossible, which is what so many tales of female success unfortunately entail.
So, the novel is two stranded, wrapping a feminist issue around the absolutely enthralling background of the development of Blue Delft that captivates the ceramics lovers amongst us.
I would recommend reading this. Fascinating on the subject of ceramics. And oddly satisfying in a spiky sort of fashion actually wondering if the activities of this independent young woman in the 16th century really could have happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars solid staple, 11 Mar. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Spring-bound notebook, hard cover, lined pages. There's a little blurb inside the front cover which describes it as "shockproof", offering "uncompromising protection" and tells you you can make notes on "both sides of the page". Really? Never have thought of that. But in spite of the high-flown blurb, it's a solid useful notebook.
Just one thing, Black n' Red. Yes, they call themselves Black n' Red. What's with the single apostrophe? There are a lot of grammar nerds out there who could get very upset over that one.

Yardley is a classic brand and this one doesn't miss. Subtle floral scent, you could use as body spray, room spray, can imagine puffing it over my clean laundry. Yardley never fails to deliver, this is lovely.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A wipeable baby changing mat which rolls up neatly, specifically for taking to the swimming pool, but could just be used as a travelling change mat. Convenient and hygienic, although lots of babies have been changed on folded towels and lived to tell the tale. For the babe who has everything.

4.0 out of 5 stars great, fantastic in fact, for carnivores., 11 Mar. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Everything you ever wanted to know about cooking beef- and more, including different breeds of cattle, butchery, salting your own brisket and roasting an ox, plus veal, offal and accompaniments. Recipes come from around the world, explained in detail and with appetising photographs. A fine book but it really is all about the beef- don't buy for any of your veggie friends.
