      Advantages

      • "Always on Time"
      • "Cheap Slots"
      • "Great Offers"
      • "Huge Range of Products"

      Disadvantages

      • "None For Me"

      A great service that I will continue to use..

      I don't drive and my boyfriend is away one week in three, meaning if I want to do a full shop, the best way is to get it delivered.

      I have tried this service from three of the big four and Tesco is the one I keep going back to.

      The Advantages

      One Hour Time Slots - nine times out of ten I have got mine at the beginning of the slot, meaning I am not hanging around.

      £1 Time Slots - I love these! I often get days off in the week, so I can really take advantage of these, and the service is just as good.

      Short Dated Items - Not only are these few and far between, but the driver talks these through with you. This means I know instantly what I should be using up.

      A Large Array of Non-Food Items Available- I have been holding a few dinner parties in the last few months and this service has allowed me to have some crockery items ordered.

      Time to Change the Order - This is amazing as I normally forget things in my initial order.

      The website is also really easy to use.

      I have used this service more than a dozen times now and I could not be more impressed. My order has never been late and nothing has been forgotten. I have never had a substitution either. The staff members have always been friendly but profressional and I always feel really comfortable with them.

      The prices are also reasonable and they normally have a huge number of deal. This is my favourite shopping service and I will continue to order from them.This also takes the stress out of the weekly shop, and a huge time saver.

      A brand worth sticking with

      I am always keen to find cheaper alternatives to branded goods, but Elastoplast is one lesson I've learned it's worth paying more for.

      Over a period of buying from poundland and b&m, I found plasters which peeled away, plasters which crumpled, even plasters which simply didn't stick very much.

      All of those key requirements of a plaster are invariably met by Elastoplast, and so I am now returned to buying them when I need to stock up.

      This pack of water resistant come with 3 different sized rectangular strips - 20 of the regular long thin plasters (19x72mm) which I most commonly use, 10 of a larger size (30x72mm) and 2 which are 50x72mm which I rarely actually use. There are also 8 little round plasters in the pack which I find useful for little spots or where shoes rub.

      The best factor of these plasters is their 'stickability'. Their cushioned patch which goes over the wound is always centralised so there is plenty of adhesive to the edges, which is also something often lacking in cheaper plasters. I find with Elastoplast that healing of minor wounds is helped, I'm not sure what science is behind this but it does seem to be the case.

      The water resistant variety are smooth to the touch and a light pink/peach colour, and they are very thin too, although not too thin that they get crumpled up when you peel the backing off. Also they are flexible when in place, After a few minutes of flexing, you don't feel any restriction if on a knuckle for instance.

      Being water resistant they will withstand normal hand washing without even starting to come away for a couple of days, by which time its advisable to be changing the plaster anyway in my view.

      The normal price in my local shop for these is £2.99 although I usually pick them up when on offer when they cost £2.39 which if you can find them around that price represents very good value.

      Advantages

      • "It is good for dry skin"

      Disadvantages

      • "It is not effective for my daughter"

      Hydromol ointment

      WHAT IS IT?

      Ointment that you use for eczema and dry skin conditions also. You can buy it but a doctor can prescribe it if you need to use it.

      WHY I USE IT

      My daughter has got eczema and Hydromol is given to her by the doctor. He prescribes other creams also and this is for when her condition is not very bad.

      WHAT I THINK

      I am happy with this ointment but I do not think that it is effective for when my daughter has got her eczema bad. It does not smell of anything but it is strong and very rich so I think it makes my daughters itching worse because it does not soothe.

      The ointment is hard to run into the skin and if my daughter is starting to have a flare up of her eczema I change always to another cream because this one will not stop it.

      I think it is moisturising because I have dry skin sometimes and I use a little bit of this so that it makes my skin feel better and soft also. It does not moisturise skin that is affected by eczema symptoms.

      I think this is a good ointment but it is not very well suited for my daughter and it does not help her very much.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      This is free if it is prescribed for a child but if you buy it for yourself it costs about £6.50 so it is quite cheap but it is not so effective that I would buy it if my doctors stopped giving it to us.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A bottle of 'Kalms' for around £6.50 is a very good buy.

      I was first introduced to 'G R Lanes Kalms' some ten years or more ago. At this particular time I was experiencing a lot of stress after a very close bereavement and found it very difficult to relax and sleep. My occupation which involves dealing with the with general public on a daily basis, certainly didn't help my problems. Thankfully, a member of staff realised something was wrong and, after explaining my predicament, she recommended I try 'Kalms'.

      Taking her advice, after work I purchased a bottle of 'Kalms' in 'Boots' the chemist and when I arrived home, opened the box of 'Kalms' began reading the enclosed notes and took two tablets being the recommended doseage. I was very pleased to read that the tablets were a traditional natural plant remedy which helped to alleviate stress, irritability. promote natural sleep patterns and very importantly non-addictive. Also there wasn't any worry about driving as no drowsiness would be experienced.

      For the following four days I took two tablets in the morning and another two before retiring to bed. By the end of my working week I was beginning to feel an awful lot better, sleeping for longer periods of time. Consequently, I was less irritable, more confident and finding my work enjoyable again.

      Over the years anytime I feel a little stressed over i.e. Driving Test, Flight or job interview, I take two 'Kalms' twenty minutes before I am due to attend.

      If people are for any reason stressed at work, they always know where to come for a 'Kalm'.

      Advantages

      • "anti aging"
      • "lots of good natural ingredienst"
      • gentle

      Disadvantages

      • "limited places to purchase"
      • expensive

      Gentle exfoliating action and anti aging beneficoial ingredients

      The idea of this is that you apply this cool clear pale green gel to your face skin when it is dry. I then left it for some time – depending on how long I had it was between five minutes and half an hour. When you apply it you rub it in with dry fingers gently in an upwards movement for about a minute and you can rinse it off then but as I said it depends on what I am doing when I apply it as to how long I leave it. Some skin rubbish comes to the surface as you massage the product into your skin After that I rinsed it off with warm water and used a face cloth.

      Once rinsed off my skin felt clean and smooth and I think my pores looked cleaner and less obvious too.

      After using this for a week or so I found my skin did seem to look brighter and it certainly felt nice to touch.

      It is a kind of exfoliator but it has no scrubby grains in it so it is very gentle so fine for sensitive skins and also okay to use on acne prone skin as it will not aggravate it. It also has anti ageing benefits which is the appeal to me!

      I can't say I am wanting my skin whitened but the other benefits make this a great product to use. It isn't cheap as it costs around £22 for a 60ml tube. I felt quite pleased with my two 10 ml samples for which I paid nothing as that would have cost me around £7 to buy.

      Green Tea extract is a strong anti-oxidant as those that drink it regularly already know and it helps to delay the skin’s ageing process and reduce the damage from sun’s rays.

      Apart from green tea it also has Korean soybean which whitens the skin which is considered important in Asia. This soybean is fermented with 'Bacillus Subtilis which will produce Cellplus+ which helps whiten and moisturise the skin.

      he Ginseng increases skin cell renewal and also helping hydrate ,nourish and brighten dull skin. 

      Pomelo( kind of like a large grapefruit) Extract is rich in Vitamin C and helps protect the skin from free radical damage and again helps whiten.

      Pearl Power is once again whitening and also nourishing , it renews skin cells, corrects UV damage and leaves skin with ' a sheer, radiant glow on skin.'

      Biogel in this helps the skin absorb nutrients into the skin cells


      I have been using mine about two weeks and I only use it once or twice a week and I think it is going to last me some time at this rate.

      After using this and rinsing it off as described I then toned and moisturised my face as usual. I have been very happy with my experience so far and would buy this again.

      Luxury face flannel

      I enjoy shopping in the Body shop although don’t go that often. I have a range of their products including the excellent body butters, bath and shower gels and hand cream. During my last visit I picked up a luxury face flannel as I was in need of as bit of pampering and anything with luxury in the name fitted the bill!


      The body shop luxury face flannel is basically a large, white very soft face flannel. It appealed to me as I wanted something to use on my face to remove make up and also to use with my face wash. I prefer using a facial wash as opposed to a cream as it seems to suit my skin better and also helps to wake me up in the morning!



      The face cloth is larger than average and is really soft. It is designed to use on the face as it won’t irritate the delicate eye area. Before its first use I washed the flannel in my washing machine. Before use I fill my hand basin and soak the flannel to ensure it is soft. It is lovely to use and is good at removing make up and rinsing off my facial wash. I sometimes use a face mask and find that when it is time to wash it off I need a flannel to ensure it is thoroughly removed. This flannel is perfect for the job and its large size means I can soak it in warm water and apply to my face fully covering it.



      I have now washed this flannel numerous times and it has kept its snowy white colour and has no rips. I paid £4.50 from the body shop and it can also be ordered from the body shop web site. This is an expensive flannel but it is lovely and soft and feels like a bit of daily luxury for my skin.

      • "snotty reply by email"
      • "poor post installation"

      Don't bother unless you want sewage leaking in to your lounge from the ensuite!

      The sales and service before we had the installation were great. However 18 months later with a leaking shower cubicle we haven't used for 9 months we are completely fed up. They have washed their hand with helping us and are blaming the installation company despite me sending numerous videos/pictures of the leaking cubicle. My advice would be don't bother using this company as all they are interested is taking your money and as soon as they have got that they are not interested.

      Now we have an additional problem with a stain on the ceiling of the room below. After investigation this stain was found to be a cut of pipe which goes out of the outer house wall into the sewer pipe. On flushing the loo toilet contents then back flush up this pipe under the loo floor and is now dripping through my lounge ceiling. I'm not even going to bother ringing the Bath Store as I'm convinced they won't be interested.

      Advantages

      • "Sticks with the Read"
      • Haunting
      • "Well Written"

      Disadvantages

      • "None For Me"

      His First and One of His Best

      I started reading Stephen King Novels when I was 19 and I haven't looked back I have now read around twenty and have the great majority on my kindle for future reading. This was probably the seventh book I read by him, but it has stayed with me.

      The Premise

      Carrie is the daughter of a very religious, over bearing mother. This has not only made Carrie very naive, but has meant she is terribly bullied. She is so naive that when he period starts in the showers after a PE session she does not realise what has happened. It ends with Carrie punishing all of the people who have wronged her appropriately.

      My Thoughts

      This book is so famous that even people who are not into Stephen King have a rough idea of the story and I can see why. This book in written in his usual style. Highly descriptive and full of the little details you do not get with any other author. I am not really a fan of books that contain things that could not happen in real live, but with him it is different. As in this book he just has a way of making these incidents seems like they really happened. He is also fantastic at making the reader have a certain opinion of people. I hated Carrie's mother for the whole book and even now if I think about the book she makes me angry.

      This book is fantastic the whole time you are just waiting for things to explode and when it does come it is no anti-climax.

      This should be on any must read list.

      Advantages

      • "UKBased Call Centres "
      • Friendly

      Disadvantages

      • "Old Fashioned"

      Friendly - But Behind in the Times

      Britannia have been around for ages and where I'm from most people have some sort of an account with them. I have had a number of savings accounts, and here are my observations.

      First of all the bank is very old fashioned. They required most things in writing and a number of simple transactions require bank visits. A lot of the products have a large number of restrictions on them, meaning activity is limited. This is fine for me, however this may not suit everyone. Make sure you have thoroughly read all of the terms and conditions, before taking any accounts out.

      They also have a very limited internet banking provision. This is only accesible on some accounts and only small transfers and balance checking can be done. As always they say they have plans to roll this out further, as of yet this has not happened.

      The opening of all accounts requires a signature, this can be quite tedious. To the good points.

      The call centres are quite small and UK based. This makes calling them and talking to them easy and quite an enjoyable experience. As the team is so small, you will often find yourself talking to the same person on a number of occassions. They are based in Leek and Stockport.

      I have always felt I can trust the building society and I have had some great service from them. I just really want them to modernise. In this world people do not have time to go to branches or spend forever filling out forms. They want to do it online or over the phone.

      Advantages

      • "Easy to put on and out"
      • "Feels comfortable"
      • "It's soft and easy to wash"

      Disadvantages

      • "He looks sad sometimes"

      Thundershirt Large- It may really work for you

      My dog is the breed that he is, they have a very common characteristic, they are not afraid of nothing, I mean it! He is not scared of thunderstorms, loud bangs, lighting, firecrackers, guns firing next to him, etc. it's even funny to watch him not care.

      A different story is with my girlfriends Golden, any loud noise or big flash makes him act suspicious. during thunderstorms and firecrackers, he shakes a lot and goes under furniture and the bed, and does not come out until the next day.

      The product

      Thundershirt Dog Anxiety Solution is a Anxiety, fear, stress, and over-excitement are surprisingly common problems for millions of dogs all over the world. The Thundershirt wrap works by applying constant, gentle pressure to the animal’s torso. This has a significant calming effect for most dogs.The Thundershirt is designed to address common problems including fear of thunder and fireworks, separation anxiety and generalized anxiety, problem barking and jumping, travel stress, and more.

      The Thundershirt is simple to put on and take off and is fully adjustable to fit dogs of most shapes and sizes. It’s easy to create a snug, comfortable fit which is the key to treating stress and anxiety. They are made of attractive, durable fabric that resists collecting hair and is machine washable.

      My personal Opinion

      Despite the crazy fear my girlfriend's dog has for storm or any loud noise, a stable dog will not fear anything he shouldn't naturally fear, as as soon as I came along, I am very good with dogs and with constant work and dedication, the pouch was over his fear in about 1 month. He used to shake like crazy when a window bang because of the wind.

      We did try the vest on him during thunderstorms, he continued to shake for a bit, but did not hide and eventually relaxed, but he looked so sad like his spirit was broken and was really embarrassed. After much work he was over the loud noise problem, but he would hate the car and always puke even in a 15 minutes drive to a vet. So I tried this on him while in the car, it really worked, he relaxed and did not puke at all, now every time we go somewhere I put this on him and no problem, it is comfortable and he does not mind it one bit.

      Advantages

      • "Easy to get to central London"
      • Cheap

      Disadvantages

      • "Not overly attractive"

      Cheap and cheerful with all the amenities, though perhaps best as a stop gap.

      I moved to Lewisham a few years back and stayed for just over two years. The most obvious benefit of living there is the cost. Given the ridiculous rate at which rental prices in London have escalated over the last few years, to find somewhere affordable in zone 2 is really quite a fit, and Lewisham very much fits the bill. Not only this, but the reasonable cost of things extends to most of the local services, so when it comes to getting a haircut, doing some dry cleaning or picking up a takeaway, you'll find it compares very favorably to other London boroughs.

      The next key benefit is the transport links. With a DLR service that takes you straight to Bank via Canary Wharf, or on to Stratford, and an over ground route that gets you to London Bridge or Waterloo in less than 20 minutes, you can get to most places without too much trouble.

      Key feature number three is the green space. Although Lewisham itself isn't necessary renowned for any great parks, a 10 minute stroll takes you to Blackheath, where you have all the green space you could want - not least because it backs onto the even bigger Greenwich park!

      On the negative, Lewisham is not the most attractive of places. Dull grey streets populated with litter from all of the various fast food chains doesn't make the most scenic back drop. In addition, the shops could certainly do with some more variety. Lee High road is a particularly good example, where ninety percent of the stores are either late night hair dressers or takeaways. Pub-wise, you'll struggle to find anywhere very nice without venturing to Greenwich or New Cross, with the Dirty South typical of the local fare.

      Almost Human SuperDog UltimateNutrition- It works so well it's funny!

      I don't know if you know this about me, but I am an amateur bodybuilder, and an ex- kickboxing and MMA fighter, I work out a lot and I love it. Now I own a Pit Bull Terrier. I know what you are thinking, the typical tough guy with a tough looking dog, to scare people and look tougher.

      Believe me if you think this, you are so wrong you cannot imagine. a few years back I did this campaign against dog fighting, I've had a lot of experience with dogs, loved them and since I was little I owned 2 Dobermans, 1 schnauzer, 1 German Shepard and of course the 2 dogs my girlfriend has and the some puppies I raised since birth.

      So of course I am quite natural with dogs beside me, but I was not aware of the situation these dogs are in, they were horribly mutilated, burned beaten, etc..
      It was really hard to watch them, they looked scarred and tough and when you approached them they would shake that tail and lick you like no other. I was struck with love, something that was treated with such cruelty can love you that much is incredible.

      After a year or so, after researching the breed very well I bought a Pit bull puppy to show people how playful and loving they really are in the proper hands, IF YOU ARE A MAN, GET IN THE RING YOURSELF DO NOT FORCE ANIMALS TO DO IT FOR YOU!

      The product

      This is the first ever True Food multi-nutrient supplement for dogs, designed and recommended for all dogs, whether they’re fed on raw or processed food. SuperDog Ultimate Nutrition provides a total of 45 nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and not less than 5mg Beta Glucans per gram of tablet. Beta Glucans support white cell production and immunity.

      It basically a suplement for dogs.

      My opinion

      As a very sporty guy, I take dietary supplements once in a while, my vet told me about this for my dog. I bought it and put it with a spoon into his food. He loves the taste and eats it right up, and since I started giving it to him, he is so active and playful and feels so good it's even funny. it is not a must to have a happy healthy dog, but is really good for him and I really recommend it to you! Especially for older dogs that needs it.

      Advantages

      • Reliable
      • Cheap

      Disadvantages

      • "You have to know what you are doing"

      Beaphar Clicker Dog Trainer-Buy it and use it, anyone can do it!

      I train my own dogs, always did it because no matter the time I have, I always have time for him, I consider him one of the most important parts of my life and although sometimes he frustrates me, I love him unconditionally because he is my best friend and I just return the feelings he offers me.

      I don't really do old school military school training, I do not think you should make a soldier from your dog and never trained mine to attack be aggressive or even all commands in existence, I just r train them to sit, stay by my side , come on command and listen to my desires even when he is stubborn.

      Product

      I don't know if you used a clicker before, it's a little device you push and makes a click, that's it. This one has a whistle included, which of course is always helpful. Other than that there is not more to say about it, it's cheap and reliable and I certainly recommend it.

      Method

      For the unfamiliar,Karen Pryor is largely credited with spurring on the clicker training wave for household pets, especially dogs. Pryor, a respected scientist and researcher, began with a career in marine mammal biology and behavior. As she trained dolphins with clickers, she observed that the positive reinforcement principles behind this method of training would work brilliantly with dogs, cats, and other household animals.

      Basically, when your dog does what you want him to do, you click and reward right away. After a while you can do whatever you want, including hands sign and only clicking to make him listen, he will associate it with command-reward.

      My personal opinion

      A few years back, This method was relatively unknown and was treated to speculation. now we know it works, believe me this is easy and you can learn from the internet how to do it.It is about timing and it's not that hard. At first we started clicker training with all commands (sit, shake, etc.). Once he had picked up everything, we started using the clicker only for “come”–mostly because our house backs up etc., and we wanted there to be a sure-fire way for him to come back if he spotted something he wanted to go after.

      So now we only take the clicker when we go into the backyard. I think using the clicker every day for the dog’s whole life for every command is a bit silly. It was really easy to train my girlfriends golden, you can really teach an old dog new tricks, but I Pitt bull, Jesus!
      I started with him when he was a puppy and even brought the Golden along to help, he just wanted to play, he is so stubborn it's unbelievable. eventually I made him listen, if I can you can, especially with a non-Terrier breed is really easy.

      Good study guide


      The first and perhaps most important thing is that before buying for this study guide check that it is the one needed. This guide is for for the OCR exam board, while other boards may have similar questions, they may not be the same.

      Like all the CGP Course books I have been impressed with the quality and number of colour pictures used, These really do bring alive the subject. The books starts with a excellent study of how to conduct experiments and the reporting, with developing and reporting the theories. As an Industrial Chemist by trade too many study guides jump in with facts but do not explain the process of experimenation. The CGP books correct this.

      Each chapter, starts with the learning objectives, following onto explanations and tips. After which there are many of examples. I found the "tips" in yellow highlighted boxes to be very interesting and helpful in understanding the contents of the chapter. The are many "tips" spaced through this book.

      For me the most helpful chapter was towards the back when Ecosystems were explained. Another good section was on human behaviour - which of course we see everyday all around, but it is so good to understand a little of hy we humans act in the way we do.

      After all the study chapters there is a section packed full of practice questions. Also helpful to assess learning and give confidence are the exam-style questions, again come with full answers and marks scheme,

      Right at the end there are a few pages on helping with the actual exam. The full glossary is extensive and helps the reader to find their way round the guide.

      An easy to use, clear and packed with information study guide.
      Suitable for student and the interested reader, as I am
