Bletchley Park Lake and Mansion.

a lake with a small fountain with swans, in the distance, lined by trees you can see the mansion at Bletchley Park

We visited Bletchley Park on Monday as a treat for my hubby’s birthday. It was a grey day, it rained a fair bit, but then we spent most of the time indoors and we were lucky that our trips in-between buildings were fairly dry. There are lots of separate buildings at Bletchley Park but my favourite was the mansion which you can see beyond this lake.

I’d love to go back in the summer and see the lake surrounded by green and the flowers in the grounds blooming. But even though the day was grey, I still think this is a lovely view.

All the time I spent at Bletchley Park I felt transported back to the 40s, feeling the atmosphere of people busying around from building to building, passing secret messages. A lot of those working there had no idea what they were achieving as each little piece of a puzzle was handled separately, finally solved by those higher up. Each person there had a special role and although the huts they worked in were small and the hours long, I like to think that maybe they had time every now and then, to sit back and enjoy the beauty of the lake and it’s swans.

Have you ever been to Bletchley Park?

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

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.
