5.0 out of 5 stars Oh filly, you got me going silly ...., 22 Mar. 2016
This review is from: Habanero (MP3 Download)
My kids introduced me to Brett Domino - Leeds-based comedian, songwriter & keyboard genius, who you might have seen on Britain's Got Talent a few years back. This is RIDICULOUSLY catchy, serious "muso's" will probably hate it, but I think its brilliant. Check out the "Habanero" video on the Brett Domino Trio You Tube channel. For a start they're called a trio, but there's actually only 2 of them. Secondly, the deadpan delivery just gets funnier every time you watch it. :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Pained & Passionate - Suede at their very best, 14 Mar. 2016
This review is from: Night Thoughts (MP3 Download)
Can't get enough of this album. Atmospheric, pained and passionate, lyrics to really bend your mind and brilliant musicianship. I never really "got" Suede in the 90's but have re-visited them lately - and with this album I'm completely converted. "Outsiders", "Tightrope" & "I Don't Know How To Reach You" are my stand-out tracks. Just LOVE it.

Pained and passionate vocals, soaring strings, clanging guitar riffs and a bass line like a firing squad. Nothing less than Suede at their most perfect. LOVE IT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value addition to my dance wardrobe, 1 Feb. 2016

Really bright colour, nice stretchy fabric and very comfy to wear. I've found them to be a great pair of "modesty shorts" for wearing under dance skirts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good colour, nice stretchy fabric, but a bit short on the ties!, 1 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this top fits really well on the shoulders and across the back, but the ties are just a little bit too short to wear tied at the back as its shown in the product picture - I can do it, but only just! Still, it works nicely when tied at the front as well, so its been a good and colourful, low cost addition to my dance wardrobe.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet story with a positive message, 1 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is quite a sweet story, if a little bit "american-ese" - it's about Lucy who is having trouble at school with Ralph, a boy who teases her about her curly hair and the foods she likes to eat for lunch. Lucy doesn't know how to handle the situation, but with some wise words from her grandpa, and by being brave, Lucy is able to help Ralph one day when he really needs her, and they find a way to get along. Like I say, its quite a sweet story. To be honest, I don't know many kids in real life who would just stop being a bully under those circumstances! But on the other hand, it's a gentle way of helping small children realise that its ok to be themselves, that they can be brave when they need to, and that they are okay just as they are. My 4 year old daughter really likes it, and I suppose she's more the target audience then me ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect potty training book! (And there's a boy's version too) :), 12 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My little girl loved this - the book uses photos rather than drawings, the white background means the pages are clean and clear, and seeing real-life pictures of other little girls learning to use their potties really helped her understand what we were trying to achieve with the whole potty training lark. She even gave all the little girls names, as if they were her friends! :) It has a nice little rhyming story, reward stickers at the back, and along with Elizabeth Pantley's "No Cry Potty Training" (to help keep mummy sane during the process! ;D ) this was really the only potty training book we needed. Used the boy's version for my son too. Brilliant :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh ground filter coffee at the touch of a button, 12 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my hubby's birthday - he's a big fan of fresh coffee, and he reckons this is the biz. It's *very* easy to use - whole coffee beans in the airtight container on the top, water in the the tank at the back, tell it how strong you want the blend and how many cups to make, then press the button. It does everything else for you in just a few minutes (apart from clean the filter out afterwards, obviously!) It has a washable filter by the way, so you don't need to buy paper ones. Keeps your fresh coffee hot for about 35 mins, then switches off automatically - so you just make your coffee as you want it, and you can make between 2 and 12 cups. (2 cup setting fills an average size mug). My only gripe with it is that the grind function is a bit loud - but that only lasts for a few moments anyway. It's not too big on the worktop, wipes down easily, chrome finish looks smart, hubby loves it.


The Pre-Raphaelites (The World's Greatest Art)
The Pre-Raphaelites (The World's Greatest Art)
by Michael Robinson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but a bit on the small side, 12 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautiful collection of pictures by the Pre-Raphaelites and their associates - so not just Rossetti, Hunt and Milais, there is everything here from the most famous favourites like Ophelia, Light of the World and Flaming June, to the most obscure and little-known works that you probably never even knew were by Pre-Raphaelites. The colours are rich and vibrant, the reproductions clear, and there is an accompanying page of description about each painting - although as a complete know-nothing about art, some of these seemed a little tenuous to me. My only criticism of this book is that is could have done with being in a bigger format, so you could really see the detail of each painting. At around 10cm x 10cm in size, its a little bit limited - but still very beautiful to look at and a comprehensive introduction to these intriguing artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 12 Nov. 2015

Old style dolly pegs like Nanna used to use, but made from hard wearing plastic instead of wood that just goes manky and marks your clothes! These are great, they hold really well in just about any weather on just about any clothes (altho I'd recommend hanging jeans by the legs rather than the waistband or the pegs will break eventually). Mine are still colourful even after well over a year of use, and no metal springs to go rusty either. Saved me a fortune in replacing other pegs that just fell apart or snapped after a few uses. Brilliant!
