      Advantages

      • "Good world snooker event"

      Disadvantages

      • "Not on Sky"

      World Snooker round up on Sky!

      The Crucible, Sheffield and snooker is like Lords and cricket. It is its rightful home and any move away from the BBC and towards China will kill the sport here the way the Olympics did in Beijing. Sheffield has just signed a deal to keep the current World Championships at Sheffield until 2007 but that doesn’t mean the BBC will show it. Barry Hearn pushed up the price on Sheffield council and the BBC but with councils tight on money right now and the BBC dumping its main sporting portfolio you should make the most of the event as a TV viewer. I personally think the BBC will dump snooker very soon and a move to ITV very likely. If it was held in China you can only image the audience and sponsorship deals.

      The tournament got underway proper with no fewer than five World Champions bounced out in round one at the Crucible. It was the fist time a defended champion - Stuart Bingham - and the guy he played in the final –Shawn Murphy – had fallen in the World Championships in the first round. That would not be the first record broken this week. Neil Robertson followed them losing 6-10 to Michael Holt and less glamorous Graeme Dott losing to ex champ Mark Williams 6-10. Peter Ebdon was massacred by Marco Fu.
      Bingham had a tough draw against Ali Carter and it went to the last frame but the World Champion having a poor year since the 2015 final when he became that unfashionable and rather plain champion like Graeme Dott did. The likeable Murphy, alas, lost 8-10 to the battling Anthony McGill, last year’s surprise quarter-finalist. Any player in the top eight could take world number one spot from Mark Selby if they won the 2016 title, the players that close these days. With an unseeded draw you rarely get walkovers at Sheffield now


      Ronnie O’Sullivan did his usual publicity thing to make the headlines after picking his way past the useful David Gilbert 10-7 and then refusing to attend a mandatory post match press conference for no particular reason, earning him an official warning. Ronnie needs to be center of attention at every event so he feels top dog and the snooker world revolves around him. Barry Hearn recently admitted that Ronnie texted Hearn just after that infamous 147 refusal stunt and said he did it for publicity.

      Steve Davis stole the headlines on day two by finally announcing his retirement after more than 1500 competitive matches and 53 tournament wins and 356 centuries. The Nugget made 37 finals in 14 years at his peak in the 1980s and early 90s. John Higgins and Ronnie O’Sullivan recently matched his 28 ranking title record to go level second behind Stephen Hendry and with the death of Davis’s father this year he finally called it a day as his 60th birthday neared. He wanted to win a title in his 50s after he won The Masters in his 40s and made the UK Championship final in 2005 and the quarter-finals at Sheffield as recent as 2010. But not to be and cut a rather sad figure slugging it out at the qualifiers in recent years. He is now a part time DJ of all things.

      Mark Selby and Judd Trump struggled in round one and scraped home10-6 and 10-8 respectively. Trump thumped the air in triumph over the exciting and cheeky Liang Wen-bo to get through and looks like he really wants to win this year. But he plays Twenty20 snooker with lots of big shots and so the tacticians pick him off. Northamptonshire Kyren Wilson won a thrilling match 10-9 to knock out Joe Perry. Ronnie thinks this kid could be a future world champion. He used to pull pints in our local snooker club and a guy that looks confident in the final three frames of close matches. I agree with Ronnie.

      ===1st Round Results===

      1 Stuart Bingham 9 v 10 Allister Carter
      2 Stephen Maguire 7 v 10 Alan McManus
      3 Ricky Walden 10 v 8 Robbie Williams
      4 John Higgins 10 v 3 Ryan Day
      5 Judd Trump 10 v 8 Liang Wenbo
      6 Martin Gould 8 v 10 Ding Junhui
      7 Mark Williams 10 v 4 Graeme Dott
      8 Neil Robertson 6 v 10 Michael Holt
      9 Shaun Murphy 8 v 10 Anthony McGill
      10 Marco Fu 10 v 2 Peter Ebdon
      11 Barry Hawkins 10 v 5 Zhang Anda
      12 Ronnie O'Sullivan 10 v 7 David Gilbert
      13 Mark Allen 10 v 3 Mitchell Mann
      14 Joe Perry 9 v 10 Kyren Wilson
      15 Michael White 7 v 10 Sam Baird
      16 Mark Selby 10 v 6 Robert Milkins

      Round Two and best of 25 frames as things get grueling. Ding, who had to come through qualifying after ending up just outside the top 16 this season, had the pick of the round against Judd Trump. Why Ding slipped down so low is mystery but I just don’t trust the guy. He sees to win matches for other people and not himself. All he had to do was win the first round of the China Open in March and he would avoid qualifying at Ponds Forge in April. He didn’t. But he won his biggest matches of the season so far as those three qualifying matches at Ponds Forge seemed to tune him up. Trump, alas, is back to playing Twenty20 snooker, the fans here to see the big shots all around the wicket and not so much results. But unless you refine it and pick the moments when you attack you won’t be winning the World Championship, The Ace in The Pack never recovering from his 6-2 opening session deficit and always 3 or 4 behind. He got it back to 10-12 as Ding tightened up but the Chinese number one had prepared his safety game and held on through the late barrage.

      The big shock was Ronnie O’Sullivan losing on the final frame decider to bespoke Crucible performer ‘Boring’ Barry Hawkins, who Ronnie annihilated in the final a few years back. Ronnie made some mildly derogatory comment about him earlier in the year and proved motivating enough for Baz to squeeze through. O’Sullivan hadn’t practiced much and deserved to go.

      The exciting Kyren Wilson cheered us all up with a thrilling exhibition against Mark Allen from N.Ireland with a 13-9 win. As I aid he is from Northamptonshire and worked in a Northampton snooker club in the early days behind the bar for free table time. He raced into a 7-0 lead and Allen didn’t know what hit him. But Allen shared the next session for 11-5 and then took the first 4 in the afternoon session to sound the alarm. But Kyren banged in those long pots to wrestle control back to get the two frames he needed. This kid has it all.

      Mark Selby again struggled and had to come from behind to get over the line against the rather odd looking Sam Baird, looking like one of the Lost Boys with his guy liner and boot polish black hair. But the kid can play and reeled off 4 frames at the death to get back to 11-11 before the handsome square-jawed Jester from Leicester closed it out. Veterans Mark Williams, John Higgins and Mathew Stevens found themselves in the Q/F with big wins over Michael Holt, Ricky Walden and Ali Carter respectively. ‘Thirtysomething’ Marco Fu joined the last 8 too.

      ===Round Two Results===

      17 Allister Carter 11 v 13 Alan McManus
      18 Ricky Walden 8 v 13 John Higgins
      19 Judd Trump 10 v 13 Ding Junhui
      20 Mark Williams 13 v 8 Michael Holt
      21 Anthony McGill 9 v 13 Marco Fu
      22 Barry Hawkins 13 v 12 Ronnie O'Sullivan
      23 Mark Allen 9 v 13 Kyren Wilson
      24 Sam Baird 11 v 13 Mark Selby


      ===Quarter-Finals==

      25 Alan McManus13 v 11 John Higgins
      26 Ding Junhui 13 v 3 Mark Williams
      27 Marco Fu 13 v 11 Barry Hawkins
      28 Kyren Wilson 8 v 13 Mark Selby


      45-year old Alan McManus beat 40-year-old John Higgins in a grueling closely matched game as qualifier McManus won out 13-11. This is not what Barry Hearn had in mind for his snooker revolution. Fellow qualifier Ding Junhui obliterated 44-year-old Mark Williams 13-3. 38-year-old Marco Fu saw of 37-year-old ‘Boring’ Barry Hawkins 13-11. Hawkins trailed 8-1 but clawed it back but the line came just too quickly. The best match of the last 8 saw Mark Selby mentally mind f**k the thrilling young Kyren Wilson 13-8.

      ===Semi-Final===

      A brilliant match full of everything saw Mark Selby edge out Marco Fu 17-15. The boys traded blows like broadswords and no one had more than a two frame lead at any point. Fu lost his tip half-way through the match but held it together and then brushed his finger against the ball and didn’t call a foul, meaning Selby had to hold it together. But cheats never win and Leicester boy Selby joined the weekend party in the Midlands with his third final, a match that included a 76 minute frame, the longest ever at Sheffield. His opponent will be the seriously in form Ding Junhui who cracked a record 7 centuries in the semi-final against McManus, the most tons in any crucible match. It was the first semi final to see two qualifiers play together since the 1970s as Ding battered MacManus into submission 17-12, the Scott’s first World semi since 1993.

      ===The Final==

      ===Ding v Selby==

      Selby swept into a 6-0 lead against a nervous looking Ding, the weight of China and one billion people on his back. But the Chinese mans crampons found some grip late on to close on 6-2 at the end of session number one. The second session was grueling snooker as the two traded mind games and tactical snooker to end 10-7 Selby overnight, five hours full of snookers and mind games as Ding hauled him back by another frame. Selby kept the three frame lead on Monday afternoon for 14-11 with some increasingly scrappy stuff. Neither player was in control and Selby now playing both players out of form with his meticulous and over cautions style. This guy never waste a shot and everyone play thought out and that would be the end for Ding as Selby just got over the line 18-14 in a rather tactical and dull final.

      He is now only the 13th double world champion and what a great night for Leister as his football team won the Premier League. Leicester rugby team and Leicestershire CCC team are also on the up.

      Advantages

      • " works well"
      • " smells good"
      • non-drip

      Disadvantages

      • "cheap gloves for use with product"

      The best product on the market for women of any age.

      This has to be the best hair colourant I've ever used. It gives my hair a beautiful sheen and only takes 30 mins to work. The conditioner that comes with it can be used at least six more times after the first use. It is well worth the cost - there is no point in using a cheaper product if it doesn't do the job. There is a large range of colour shades. i wouldn't use anything else nowadays. It covers all grey hair perfectly and looks very natural.

      would recommend firstprint to anyone friends or family

      I have found First Print to be the best printing company out there. I have used them for 6 months now and have not had one issue with them. They are punctual and from the research I have done I have found that they have the best prices around on bulk buying flyers. I have used other companies in the past which haven't kept up to their next day delivery guarantee which has ended up costing me big, I get my artwork on a wednesday night so ready to send off and be here for friday but if it doesn't come through then i'm left waiting all weekend which is were first print excel as they have not let me down once. One thing to always check though is if there are any bank holidays in Germany as they have them on thursdays and fridays so that has come in my way on one occasion but as long as you keep your eye on the delivery time offers then you'll be fine. I would strongly recommend them to anyone for any of their printing needs.

      50 Shades of Grey no more

      A recent survey found that early grey hairs on a woman makes her look older than a man of the same age with the same early grey hairs. But a grey haired woman full stop makes her look much older than her male equivalent of the same age. In short woman have to dye their hair or men are simply going to ignore them where as grey men can appear stately and so attractive in other ways to women. It’s not fair but women make the rules on dating as they go for money and status over looks and body shape when it suits them. But what is the right age to dye ones hair?

      It’s a cathartic moment when you do as you know you are officially middle aged. No one wants to get old so it’s a good rime to start trying to look young. The temples grey first and just as women used gravy to brown their legs in the war then men can use what they like to brown their sides. I use those staining pens you get for furniture and they work a treat but not for very long. There gets a point where you have to dye your hair and take the plunge – usually in the sink.

      Just for Men Auto-Stop has the brush delivery thing where you actually comb it into your hair rather then the full plastic glove thing and sitting in the dark waiting for it to set and then the washing out bit to see how silly you look. It’s a laborious process and you don’t want to get it in your eyes. Make sure you do the skin test first. I washed my hair and then popped the cap and combed it in with the attachable tooth brush size thing provided. It’s supposed to match your original hair color by ‘shutting itself off’ when it finds that color. I’m not sure how it can. You don’t need to mix it or anything and apply as it comes out of the tube. Once the seal is broken you have to use it all up as it will oxidize and so no good any more. That’s not strictly true as I have got two separate uses from the tube and I reckon another one in there, if you just do your sides. This is for the sides only after all. It has no peroxide and ammonia in it and so a less brutal experience on your hair. I’m lucky as I have a good head of hair and now naturally tanned skin and so don’t look as old as some guys my age. Being bald for guys is very traumatic and not so much grey but if you can get rid of the gray then it’s a good thing. We are judged by our age and so the more we can fib about it the better.

      I comb auto-stop in all over my grey areas and it seems to get rid of some of them. Make sure you apply it evenly. It’s not a bad idea to get your partner to do it. Any grey hairs left you can cut out with some scissors. I wouldn’t say it totally get rids of the grey but it beats the full dyeing experience. It last as long as it takes the hairs to grow back although the advantage of this is its quick to apply over the normal dye process. I would say you need to do it four times a year to stay grey free.

      It’s not cheap and comes in around £7.99 on Amazon and £10.99 in retail chains. As expected the females are overcharged for hair dyes and their equivalent of the men’s version. In the same store I bought this the pink disposable razors were 30% more than the blue disposables razors. Shop around and get the price guys and girls because retailers and manufactures will take advantage of your vanity and gullibility. But remember to do the skin test on a clean area of your skin as you can get in real trouble if this reacts with your skin.

      Advantages

      • "fashionable "
      • "good protection "
      • "nice style"

      Disadvantages

      • "thin lenses"

      Would definitely buy again and recommends for people.

      The sunglasses are a very good price in retrospect to the quality they offered. I found the sunglasses to be extremely fashionable which was exactly what I wanted. I received many compliments and questions as to where they came from. they also protected my eyes as well as being a fashion statement. at first I was apprehensive because the colour might not have suited me. however, the soft pink frame would surely suit every complexion. there was a fade on the lens, which wasn't shown in the picture, but I loved it nonetheless. The lens itself is a stylish shape, but not too big and not too small which provides the best quality for preventing being blinded by the sun whilst in use but also looking good in style! I was able to wear these as a small yet cute accessory even when it wasn't blindingly sunny because the colour matches any outfit! The lens aren't thick which is surprising considering how well they dull out the bright sun, however I'm not complaining because the slenderness of the glasses make them look sleek whilst wearing them. Ideal for festivals, beach walks, camping, summer aventures and as an accessory to help assist pulling off an outfit. One of the best qualities of the sunglasses was the adjustability of the frame length which was a massive bonus for me as I don't like sunglasses too long past my ears as they're only small, this feature only made me fall in love with the sunglasses even more! The brand itself is well known for good high quality sunglasses and it's safe to say they didn't slack while designing and producing these! for so I was even more pleased to find how well they worked yet how adorable they looked! The colour is subtle but conpliments any skin tone well with the pink frame. I love the fade of tintedness of the actual lens, they're darkest at the top which blocks out the sun - perfect! The lens itself is a stylish shape, but not too big and not too small which provides the best quality for preventing being blinded by the sun whilst in use but also looking good in style! I was able to wear these as a small yet cute accessory even when it wasn't blindingly sunny because the colour matches any outfit! however, The lens are thin
      and this surprised me. Ideal for festivals, beach walks, camping, summer holidays.

      Einstein: ‘Both religious believers and physicists are ultimately looking for the same thing: The creator’.


      So we all know if actors play a Holocaust hero, a disable character, a gay man or someone with autism there is a good chance they will be nominated for an Oscar. It proved the case with Eddie Raymane with his worthy Oscar winning performance here as world famous cosmologist Stephen Hawking. One big qualification to go on and actually win the Oscar is to be posh and very British. The Academy loves that stiff upper lip stuff. 40% of BAFTA winners were privately educated and most British Oscar winners from public school in recent years. Film, like music, is becoming increasingly middle-class as working-class kids can no longer afford to do the unpaid apprenticeship for the arts. In the year of 2014 it was a straight fight between Redmayne for this and Benedict Cumberbatch for the Imitation Game, two Oxbridge posh boys playing two Oxbridge posh boys.

      Hawking, of course, is the most famous scientist since Einstein, and as recognizable although more known for his wheelchair and funny voice over the equations none of us will ever understand. Now 74 he is still doing his magic, 50 years after a doctor back in the 1960s gave him just two years to live. Medicine, like cosmology, has come on a long way since then. His black hole work was his most famous and the idea that the universe was formed by a singularity, the Big Bang, as that would explain the uniformity of matter across our universe. Something must have made it expand outwards at great speed as it still is now and so that must have meant all the energy was released in one place at one time. Because radiation was allowed to escape black holes then everything must have been crushed down to nothing inside the black hole through thermodynamics that we can test today. As I say its complex stuff. He is no doubt a brilliant man and maybe God decided to strike him down with that illness as the boy was getting too close to his secrets. Or the same God needed to keep Hawking’s mind on one thing only to make sure his work happens? I have always said that because humans exist now and they are learning exponentially then they will eventually learn how to great universes, this universe, and so Gods.


      ===Cast===
      Eddie Redmayne ... Stephen Hawking
      Felicity Jones ... Jane Hawking
      Tom Prior ... Robert Hawking - Age 17
      Sophie Perry ... Lucy Hawking - Age 14
      Finlay Wright-Stephens ... Timothy Hawking - Age 8
      Harry Lloyd ... Brian
      Alice Orr-Ewing ... Diana King
      David Thewlis ... Dennis Sciama
      Thomas Morrison ... Carter
      Michael Marcus ... Ellis
      Gruffudd Glyn ... Rees ...

      ===Plot===

      We breeze through Hawking’s time at Cambridge as he meets Jane (Felicity Jones), a pretty undergraduate doing a PHD in Spanish Medieval Poetry. Stephens is studying Cosmology and his final dissertation is a little more important and complex than the musings of hairy men in cloaks in Madrid, that of the life of black holes and their role in the creation of the universe and so mankind being here. She is drawn to his humor and intelligence as well as his breeding and good looks.

      As his PHD moves forward he starts to show symptoms of his disease, Lou Gerick’s, known as Motor Neuron disease here. The doctor breaks the bad news and the only redemption being it won’t affect his brilliant brain. Jane loves him and will stick with him to the end, given two years to live. But Stephen doesn’t die and gets his PHD and is now a Dr rewriting the subject of cosmology whilst battling to stay on his walking sticks and not concede to the wheelchair. It’s like the weight of the whole space time continuum is pressing down on him to try and stop him unpicking Gods secrets.


      Einstein: ‘God doesn’t play dice with creation’.

      He is able enough in the early stages of the disease to marry and have kids with Jane, and with adapted technology, communicate with his family and stay active. Jane’s mum (Emily Watson) suggest her daughter joins the local choir in Cambridge to try and relive the pressure of kids and a paraplegic to care for 24/7, and for her to meet other people, like the handsome choirmaster Rees (Gruffudd Glyn), who she develops feelings for, he also burdened by his partners illness in his life. But the arrival of a pretty nurse (Diana King) into the family home catches Stephens only roving eye and threatens the marriage from the other flank as his book ‘A Brief History of Time’ makes him world famous.


      ===Results===

      How many times are we going to be disappointed by films that win Oscars? Yet again we have an actor led movie with authentic placing and attractive locations and people boring the socks off us. I was hoping this was going to be more about Stephens’s achievements and explanation of his science, the way The Imitation Game works, but ends up about a love tryst. And this is a guy who can’t get it up and so limited there to. I suspect the case here was that eventually someone felt they needed to make a film about this incredible guy and found that the true story was not the one the writers and director wanted to tell on screen and so ended up with this. In real life Hawking was an cantankerous and difficult man with his illness and the romance with his wife long since gone when the disease took hold, eventually divorcing Jane and marrying his nurse, who was rumored to beat him and spend his money. That would be a more interesting film and the one director James Marsh clearly couldn’t make as Jane Hawking only agreed access to the family if she could co-write the film. It ends up a tribute to the man and not an interesting biopic we need. The same thing happened to Selma and the life story of Martin Luther King with his negative bits being glossed over, again the more fascinating story on the cutting room floor.

      Redmayne is phenomenal in the lead, helped by his uncanny resemblance to the young Hawking (but not so much the old). He captures the great man's famous sense of humor, likeable eccentricity and resilience, what Jane wants us to see through her screenplay. But it’s that acting that lifts the somewhat fictionalized story out of the realm of banality and earns the third star. Sadly it just doesn’t get going and although Felicity Jones does her best to try and create chemistry between the two she can only do that by being quite two dimensional early on in the film. But the broadsheets loved it and a rare five out of five form al this big papers. I think they love this type of class based drama as it reassures them of their halcyon youth in the same redbrick universities.

      For its $15 million budget it did an excellent $124 million back for this type of niche perfunctory British movie and very much a posh couple’s movie. I’m guessing it didn’t play well up north. If you are looking for romantic tale it’s not really that and if you are looking for a revelation film about science and Hawking’s discoveries it’s certainly not that. The cosmology stuff and science is criminally underused in the film and barely 15 minutes spent on it. In the end it ends up a nothing film and the type of thing you would probably find in a black hole that has been crushed down to nothing.

      ===Special Features===

      It’s nothing special in Blue Ray. It’s colorful but it’s essentially a period drama with lots of dreaming spires and posh people and no special effects. It’s an acting film and nothing more. Don’t buy it in Blue Ray as there are very few extras or additions.


      -Becoming the Hawkings-

      Cast and crew talk about the movie and we meet the real family.


      -Audio Commentary-

      Director James Marsh talks over his boring movie.


      ===Critics===

      The Film Stage –‘For relying more on emotions than the fascinating knowledge contained in Hawking's mind, The Theory of Everything could've employed more complexity’.

      The NY Times –‘A small-minded portrait of subject who's anything but’.
      .
      ABC Radio –‘The Theory Of Everything provides both insight and comfort. There are many ways to make a relationship work’.

      The Mail –‘A glossy, manipulative but affecting portrait of a brilliant man struck, but not struck down, by a terrible malady’.

      Movie Talk –‘Redmayne's astonishing physical transformation is the film's showiest feature, but the subtler emotional transformations he and Jones display over the course of their characters' embattled marriage are just as impressive’.

      Cinemania –‘The treatment of the subject matter goes over to what is essentially religious adoration’.

      Advantages

      • effective
      • "great price "
      • "long lasting"
      • "easy to use"

      Disadvantages

      would definitely buy again in the future

      I have very sensitive skin and I find it hard to seek out body products that do justice and don't make me have a nasty reaction, this product is a god send! It comes in a small glass bottle which is vertually see through and a white top. I find that when they come in glass bottles and you can see the product inside it's a lot better than plastic bottles. The product itself smells nice and fresh and doesn't leave a discolouration under your arms which i find with other branded products to be a regular problem, it also doesn't leave a sticky sensation under your arms either which is great!! It last's far longer than other products that I have used in the past and smells just as strong hours after than it does when it's first applied.. I also find that with Nivea products including this roll on it leave your skin feeling soft and nourished. I highly highly recommend this product to people who are considering buying.. it's liturally £1 in almost all shops I have been to including wilkinsons, the pound land, and amazon. It's really good for the skin and last so long! I wouldn't choose to use anything else if I'm hounest, I love nivea brand and this wonderful product. There are no faults I can add to this review other than the fact that the glass bottles can be rather dangerous if you have children like me, incase it falls of things and smashes. But other than that a fantastic product and high quality for low price!

      Advantages

      • "Quality product"
      • "Value for money"

      Disadvantages

      • "Archaic website"
      • "Customer service"

      Good value for money, but lacking in other areas

      The value for money is great and you don't have to pay a lot more than if you were to build a computer yourself. However, the communication from the company is very poor and I chased several times just to get an even vague update on when I could expect my computer to be delivered.

      Advantages

      • "Compatibility Checker"
      • "Choosing Parts"
      • "Custom Built PC"

      Disadvantages

      Well built custom PC. Very high quality parts and quick build/dispatch time.

      I purchased a top-spec gaming PC from PC Specialist. It has been built and configured to the highest specification, I am extremely pleased with the build quality and performance.

      The packaging was great, even packed form inside of the case so that nothing came loose in transit.

      It took 8 days from ordering to the PC being shipped and delivered on the 9th day.

      Great service.

      Advantages

      • "Try new products"
      • "Extra money"
      • "Meet new people"

      Disadvantages

      • "Can be hard to build new customers"
      • "Very time consuming"

      I enjoyed it but very time consuming

      I worked as an Avon representative for about one year.The reason I joined as I was working part time and I wanted an additional income. I did enjoy it but it was so time consuming.

      The Sign up

      What got me interested in Avon was the advert you see every day on TV of the women trying different make up and there was a catchy song which caught my attention. So i went on the avon website and clicked the apply button I filled out a simple application form which asked for my name, date of birth, address, contact number and email. I submitted the application the next day my phone rang and it was the manager of Avon that worked in my area. She discussed the opportunity with me and asked did I want to go ahead and I did so we arranged an appointment for the following day for her to call out to my house to get me set up.
      So the following day she called out at the correct time and arrived with a bag full of receipts, books, some samples of perfume and lots of info. so now she needed to set up my online account so I started filling in my details again on her computer and I go to a section were it was asking me if I had a credit card, my marital status, if I had home internet access and if I rented of owned my property.... what? why do they need this.so I bought it up and she explained it was for how much credit I could have on my account for placing orders. she give me my account number and talked me though the system and helped me get books ready for customers. we went thought a booklet that went thought everything from top to bottom. She left me her number and welcomed me to the team.

      The 1st Week
      So the 1st day I had a list of friends and family and might be interested. I started making calls to see who wanted a brochure nearly all of them said yes so I spent the day delivering them out to. I was buzzing felt like it was going well.
      so half way though the week the area manager called to see if I was available she met up with me at my house. she give me my territory near my house were a can deliver brochures. so me and her set out with a handful of books. we went to the first door and an older lady answered and the manager explained who we were, so she took a brochure of us and we told her to leave the book out on a certain day so we can pick it up. The manager stayed with me for around an hour helping me get some brochures out. After she left I thought that it was easy so the 1st door i knocked on by myself and grumpy man answered and told we were to go.... I didn't know what to do. so I after that all the doors I went to I did not knock I just posted them threw the letter box.

      Pick Up Time
      So I picked up the brochures from my friends and family all of them ordered maybe they were feeling sorry for me.... ill never know . Some orders were around £25 but the highest one was £80 i was shocked I didn't know what to say.
      so the time came for me to pick up the brochures i delivered near my house. Getting the brochures back was a nightmare. some people left them in the garden in the rain, some people didn't answer the door . i would try 3 times to pick up the brochures if there was no answer at different times.

      Placing the order
      So I had to get all the order forms together and add all the products to my order I double checked it about 4 times before submitting it After this was down I could see my order total and my commission. The order was around £400 and i was getting 25% commission so I made around £100 but i had to order more brochures which were about £6 and the 1st part joining fee was £10. so my commission came to about £84 so i placed the order and just had to wait a couple of days for delivery.

      Delivery
      Door goes and there is a guy from yodel outside with about 5 boxes and a pack of brochures and he helps me lift them in to the living room. It takes me about 2 hours sorting the products and bagging them up.some products were out of stock and coming with my next order.now I just had to deliver them lucky on the order form every one wrote there number down so I began phoning around to see who was in to deliver the products,collect the money and leave a new brochure. so eventually i got all the products delivered and the money collected in. Then I paid my bill and kept my commission I was happy enough.

      That is what happens when you 1st join. I loved the products avon sold from make up, bubble bath, clothes, jewellery and lots more. very order I got more customers I started posting online in buy and sell groups on facebook which built my customer base. the thing I hated the most how much time it took up as once i got a full time job i did not have time of it but I did pass my customers on to someone else that was doing it.
