Big Hoot Birmingham 2015, 2nd and 3rd trips

Our City has been taken over by owls! Gloriously decorated owls that stand at five feet tall, and we are on a mission to find as many as we can.

Our first mission took us to a park, a shopping high street and Cadbury World. Next we decided a trip to the City Centre Canal area was in order and we also visited the wonderful Birmingham Library.

We found some fabulous owls, including one called Welcome to Birmingham. We Loved the Wise Old Owl and the Kids had a chat to Owliver in the ICC. We even found some smaller owlets in the library.

Our next mission took us to Birmingham University where we met the wonderful charming Hootunkahmen and his spooky friend The Bone Ranger. We also met Twit Choo Choo outside the train station.

We then travelled back to the City Centre to find some of the owls at the Bull Ring Shopping Centre, including the adorable Selfi and the kids favourite Free Radiowl. There was also another Owl and Pussycat, which had an owl on one side and a pussycat on the other.

We are really enjoying our owl hunting and are now totalling 47 owls in all. I don’t think we will manage all 210, but we will keep on finding as many as we can right up until the 27th September. There is one outside the Birmingham Children’s hospital and we have an appointment there in a few weeks.

The owls are also raising money for charity and you can donate £2 to Birmingham Children’s Hospital by texting HOOT to 70099.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, let’s stay in touch, you can also find me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and I love following back.

    Aren't they wonderful, we actually saw one outside Twycross Zoo this week, bit confusing as that's not exactly Birmingham!

      Yes, I'm thinking that is one we won't be finding. All I know is that Twycross Zoo sponsored the owl so I guess that's why they have it. I suppose us it gives us Brummies an incentive to visit there.

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.
