Shorter story than I was expecting, was an easy read but not very convincing.
I wouldn't read another book by the same author

Wonderful. All of it. Even though it took me the best part of a year to watch them all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous - wish I'd got them years ago!, 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a straight metal needle fan but treated myself to these about a year ago and am using them for just about everything, even projects where I would have used straight needles.
I since bought some extra tips and cords to extend the set.
They feel great to use, stitches slide smoothly on & off. Takes up less space when travelling - can roll the knitting and needles into a ball without risk of needles puncturing bags or losing stitches. Or one of the needles.

They come in a basic plastic wallet - other interchangeable needles come in much fancier (prettier) ones. But I'd rather pay for the needles than the packaging.

Two comments / observations:
- it's very easy to screw the needles onto / off of the cords, but they need to be well tightened otherwise they unscrew as you're knitting. I have a small thin rubber square from another project which works fine for this.
- one of the holes in the needles is partly blocked so the tightening tool doesn't fit - I use a tapestry needle instead.

Hint - when knitting in the round, use a smaller size tip for the left hand needle. Makes life SO much easier!

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy USB charger for the car., 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Handy charger for the car, two USB ports so you can charge two devices at the same time.
Not very fast charging (if using the phone on sat nav function), but that's my only (very minor!) quibble

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product and great value (especially when it's on offer), 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using this (and the night version) for well over 10 years, have been using Olay cream for over 30 years in total.
I never bother with sunscreen on my face unless I'm on holiday somewhere very hot.
Maybe I'm lucky, but I look much younger than my years - have hardly any lines & wrinkles compared with most of the women I know of my age.
Enough said!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful phone protector, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pro - cheap and cheerful case that gives good protection from minor knocks and bumps.

Cons - the pen thing is a waste of time, there isn't anywhere to store it once you've snapped the phone in.
The RH image is slightly misleading, suggests the case can be used as a phone stand but unless it's propped against something it won't stay up, and the phone will anyway be upside down. If that's an issue.

Last but not least - the phone is locked in so well that I've been unable to get it out again (didn't want to resort to brute force). Means I can't swap the SIM into another phone which is a minor issue

AKORD® 2 X MICRO SIM CARD ADAPTOR ADAPTER CONVERTER TO STANDARD SIM FOR MOBILE PHONES / TABLETS

4.0 out of 5 stars Worked for me, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this so I could take an old style phone on holiday with battery life of many days so I wouldn't have the hassle of recharging every night.
The micro SIM looked very loose in the adaptor but seemed to work OK in the phone.
I've not given it a 5 star rating only because my old phone with this set up was temperamental and froze up a couple of times a day (it didn't before with a large SIM).
Easily sorted by taking the battery out and rebooting.
(and may have been nothing to do with the SIM adaptor...)

2.0 out of 5 stars The big hits from the 70's but way too much unrecognisable stuff, 26 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace a well-loved vinyl copy of "Sweet 16". It had most of those songs apart from "love is like oxygen" (later release date).
About half the remaining tracks were similar in vein to the "big hits", typical "Sweet" songs; but the rest were just "too different", I ended up fast forwarding through most of those.
Definitely not a replacement for my vinyl - I've only played it once and it's likely to go straight to the charity shop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really comfy running show, 3 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great shoe, and really comfy.
These are replacements for the same ones I bought last September (fitted with custom moulded insoles)
I've already run over 350 road miles in them, they are now starting to show signs of wear on the heel and toe edges.
Probably got another hundred or so miles (couple of months?) before the original ones need replacing...
