I have had many pairs of Birkenstock sandals which have been fine. These feel slightly odd - not just that they are new, they feel like they will need some 'wearing in' which others haven't. Love the colour though, perfect for summer

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite strong enough, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These looked OK online and the reviews said that they were stronger than other drawing pins. However, they didn't stand up too well to be hammered into telegraph poles to pin up our Open Gardens advertising posters. Perhaps OK indoors for Christmas decorations, but given a good whack with a hammer the heads break off.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good reference book, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Damp Garden (Paperback)
I've read many gardening books, and this is a good one, though I found it rather heavy going, and not really a book you would dip into time and time again. I really admire what Beth Chatto has achieved and her list of plants is extensive and informative - perhaps time for a revamp, with more photos of plants and perhaps 'before and after' pictures of how her damp garden was constructed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really lovely, well made cushions at an excellent price for the quality. They arrived very quickly, were well packed and matched the description. I was a bit worried about the sugary pink colour, but outside they look great and will, I am sure, fade gradually in our lovely sunny summer weather....................

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on pure spec, having seen the title, and thought it sounded wacky (the very good kindle download offer was also a great attraction!)

I wasn't disappointed - this is great fun. Jona Jonasson has a very deadpan, dry/black humourous way of writing - very much like Beryl Bainbridge - I thoroughly enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy does it, 3 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Haunting (Kindle Edition)
This is a really easy read - an ideal 'book' to have on a holiday, or journey, where you can easily follow the plot and don't have to concentrate too much. It was entertaining (Alan does have a nice easy-going way of writing).

Just realised I've used the word "easy" three times - sums it up really!

For anyone who likes a detective story with good in depth detail, this would be ideal. I have now enjoyed several of his books, and will download more.

I heard about this book on Radio 4, and Hilary's brave decision to self-publish. This is a very good book - well written, and one which kept my interest throughout. I will certainly download some more of her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knitting Block by Block, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is amazing. I am an accomplished knitter, but have never seen anything so good as this. This is an excellent source of inspiration and a very comprehensive stitch library. I was interested in the book for ideas for cushion knitting, but these designs can be used for so many other things. I can't wait to start them. Any keen knitter will be so very pleased with this excellent book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cushion knitting, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book alongside "knitting block by block". This is a fantastic book, with some great designs - excellent inspiration. I haven't knitted any from it yet, but certainly will.
As usual, the books came packaged really well, and with prompt delivery. All I need is some more hours in the day for knitting!
