Merrell Womens Siren Sport GTX Walking Shoe Black &hellip Merrell
5.0 out of 5 stars Merrell Siren Sport, 18 Jun 2014
This is my fourth pair of these shoes in two years. I'm the type of person who will happily buy the same pair of shoes again and again if they are just right. And these are.

I walk a lot so I tend to wear down the soles and cushioning very quickly but even when I'm at that stage the outer and linings are almost as good as new.

I've never had an issue with the waterproofing failing and the quality and comfort has always been excellent. I do agree with some other reviewers that they are sized slightly small but the 5UK fit my 4.5UK feet perfectly.

Well worth paying the extra.
Dame Dragonfly Print Scarf in Navy SwankySwans
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely scarf, 5 Jun 2014
This scarf is nice and soft, very warm and washes nicely. As with all scarfs like this, it snags easily on Velcro but you should have no trouble if you take care.
Evo-Stik Leather Adhesive 20ml EVOCRLA by Evo-Stik
4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 5 Jun 2014
This glue certainly did the job.

However, following the intructions first time round (leave 10 minutes until touch dry) left the glue to dry to actually stick sufficiently. Luckily, it was the strap of my boots I was fixing so I could peel it apart and start again.

Second time around, I left it only a couple of minutes before pressing firmly together. Worked perfectly. The strap has stayed put even after wearing a few times.

Even if it pops off again, I have more than enough glue to fix it back up.
