Word of the Week -Farm



Half term is flashing by so quick. I've so enjoyed not having to rush around in the morning and just chilling with the kids. I think we may have chilled a bit too much though as we didn't leave the house for five days!
The kids didn't seem to mind, they've been playing with their toys and crafting, and generally making a right old mess for Daddy to clean up. (sometimes I'm happy there are things I can't do anymore, like pick things up off the floor!)

We finally had our day out yesterday, I'd booked us into a pumpkin carving session at a local farm. Good job it was local as I'd only gone and booked the wrong day!! So now we are pumpkin carving on Saturday instead. At least we have something to look forward too, again.

As we were already at the farm I thought we'd take a look around. We've been meaning to visit for a long time, this farm is literally five minutes away in the car. We walked into the shop and I couldn't believe how big it was, I mean it was as big as a supermarket. There was a huge fruit and vegetable section, a bakery, a butchers, a gift shop, loads of chutney's and jams, biscuits, cheese, tea, coffee and a lot more! I bought cheese...lots of it, cheese with nuts, cheese with fruit, spicy cheese, blue cheese. All in small pieces, mind, just so we can try it out and go back and buy our favourites. I did buy a load of other stuff, but I wanted to get even more so I'm thinking we'll be going back there again, probably very soon.

After we left the shop we spotted a mobility shop so we decided to go and look in there. The we discovered just how huge an area this was and there were so many other shops. I managed to persuade hubby that he didn't need to go into the golf shop and we went into a big warehouse instead. I haven't been to a warehouse in ages and we had great fun looking around this one. They sold just about everything. I have been wanting some new Christmas decorations for a while so we stocked up on them, and they were half the price you'd pay in a regular shop. We let the kids have some little things to play with (craft stuff again!) and I found some lovely fluffy bed socks for my freezing cold feet (96p a pair!)

We left exhausted, but happy. And my purse was a lot lighter. I think when we go on Saturday it will be for the pumpkin carving only, but me and the hubby are planning on another trip to that warehouse before Christmas.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
