    I know nothing about that sort of thing except whether I like it or don't. I like it. A pleasant experience. Nice and easy on the eye

      It's looking good. On a visual note, can I just mention that there's so much gubbins running down the right hand side that it's forcing a long page length even when there's not much in the body of the page, which means scrolling down unnecessarily. Perhaps some could move down to the rather bare bottom bar to help this?

        Nice site.

        I will be picky here.

        Some of the script is overlapping some of the images in a way which leads to lack of clarity. Eg where it reads 'free postage' on the right-hand side, the 'p' is on the (changing) image so sometimes not visible. Some of the other script overlays, in parts, other bits of images which are the same, or very similar, or darker, tone as the script thus a letter or two is invisible.

        As well as looking 'unfinished' this is also indicative of a slide towards a general lack of awareness of visual accessibility - eg 'UK mainland delivery £3.50 ' in green script superimposed on a green map of the UK.

        The population of the UK is aging; the 'grey pound' enables many of us to live well, and most of us have at least some disposable income along with our deteriorating eyesight ...

        Have you checked out the accessibility of the site for those with visual and other impairments? The RNIB has a lot of information on this.

            Chrome on Windows 7 laptop. Are you saying that the note about £3.50 delivery is not in green text superimposed on a green image? What colours have you actually done it with?

                I have always loved your sites Jane both the old and the new along with your products, superb. Do not have a problem with any wording or viewing and use Safari

                  OK being picky as I'm sure you'll want a nice list for your web man to get stuck into. I use Chrome and on the homepage a couple of the new product images have the text over them near the bottom making it a bit difficult to read. Also the "FREE POSTAGE on first order..." bit on the top right is a bit misleading due to the gap - I can see people not reading it properly and abandoning their cart when shipping is added instead of actually signing up to the newsletter to get the code. And finally I've only clicked on a couple of images to view the enlarged version but both came up with identical sized pictures and not a bigger one.
