Birkenstock Women's Madrid Sandals Blue 6 UK
Birkenstock Women's Madrid Sandals Blue 6 UK
Price: £29.50

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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very dark colour..., 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...so changed it for a normal silver aluminium which the supplier was happy to do, and quite quickly, without further charge (though I note that the silver colour was a bit cheaper, but we'll let that pass...). Ultimately got it up very easily, fits perfectly, classy look, especially having fixed up a tieback with a short length of the previous door curtain I had, which needed to be altered to fit inside a door frame. Very pleased with the overall look; both the same colour, both tied back in the same way so no need to take them down in winter (supplier please note: this would be a great selling plan, to provide a foot length and an ordinary hook as a tieback; you don't always want the thing clanging about when the door's closed!).

...good colour; goes with the collar she had earlier this year, quite zingy green dots on a brown ground. Looks good on a liver (yuck, hate that word) and white Springer spaniel, as does the blue one I got her last year...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for a basic cold-frame..., 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...but not that easy to put together, as drilling was a bit out of whack; had to call on my partner to finish screwing it together satisfactorily. It may last a few years; we'll have to see.

Bonio Rawhide Bone Beef 120 g (Pack of 6)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bones for strong teeth..., 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dottie likes these best of all the bone chews I've tried her on, maybe because of the flavour of beef running through it... She often gets bored before finishing it, so I keep finding the second knuckle-end kicking about in the grass outside... Still, it keeps her busy and her teeth clean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, cheap greenhouse, 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this installed with a friend, who did all the hard bits, like whacking tent pegs into the ground and covering the extension flaps with loads of gravel... Will it stay up all winter, in the teeth of a south-westerly gale? I guess we'll have to see...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good colour..., 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...and cheap, which is basically why I bought them, to go with my other six pairs in as wacky colours as possible; seems less orthopedic, somehow.
