1.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless..., 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much too long, much too fat a sponge; can't win on postal purchases, I guess...

1.0 out of 5 stars Impossible fit; much too narrow., 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Actually, I love the shoes, I just can't get them on... it's a shame, because I've always had no trouble with Skecher's shoes, but these are much narrower. Am I too late to send them back?

1.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it one star, if possible..., 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd give it one star, if possible... It's supposed to fit any Haws watering can, but it doesn't fit my bog standard one. It wasn't worth sending back, so I tried to fill the vast gap with Sugru; it didn't work, so I gave up. Anyone want a big fat watering can rose?

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish record..., 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First one was okay, second one had one gang that didn't work; replaced that with one that had TWO gangs that didn't work. I think I'm stuck with the second one, as I don't have fancy screwdrivers to undo it for replacement...

Starting to fall apart already, but how do I return it now that it's full of coal?

Managed to get them on but they cut off my circulation... sent them back.

Birkenstock Madrid, Women's Sandals, Blue Lack, 5.5 UK (39 EU)

4.0 out of 5 stars At last, the right width..., 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having had a disaster with the last pair of sandals, which wasn't identified as NARROW fitting, I finally found a 'medium' pair, which we in England would probably call 'wide'. Good to know that I could return the narrow pair and have it instantly refunded, which meant I could go ahead with the right pair!

5.0 out of 5 stars Episodes 5 & 6, 28 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Managed to miss these on the box so downloaded them onto my Macbook Pro; not as good a result as iPlayer, which I have to use all the time as the signal here (south Devon village) is so incredibly slow. Jumping picture though sound acceptable, so just about managed to get the gist.

It's a brilliant piece of writing, ably played by all the actors, in particular Sarah Lancashire, who really goes through it. The plot is tense to the end and I would highly recommend this work, in spite of the glitches.

Say hi to Ivan Strasburg (DoP)... the best carbonara Don and I have had; memorable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Narrow fitting not made clear..., 23 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Birkenstocks. I've bought at least six pairs, mostly through Amazon; this time, however, was a disaster. Why? Because there was no indication of the narrow fit it turned out to be...

I've now worked it out, for all of you out there who haven't got a clue how it works: the footprint sign on the ball of the heel. If it is SOLID, it is a narrow fitting; if it is OPEN (ie, outline only) it is 'medium' ( or, as we Brits would say, wide). Hope that helps, if the crazy person selling them doesn't bother to tell you and includes BOTH fittings in ONE listing...

1.0 out of 5 stars My Razorsharp only lasted six months..., 15 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...in fact, it broke today, which was the second time of using it. If I had written this in February, I would have been over the moon about how it made even old scissors sharp again; now I feel absolutely cheated because the two end sharpeners fell out and were lost in the gravel terrace. If you were to replace it, I might be tempted to up the grades a couple of stars; I would certainly keep an eye on the blades, however...
