My Sunday Photo 25th September 2016

I took this photo on Friday while having a coffee outside the hospital. It’s such an huge hospital, and pretty new as it was first opened in 2010. The old hospital is still used and you can get to it from the corridor leading out of this part of the building, the white corridor on pillars to the right of the photo. It’s much nicer to just walk over the ground though. 
This is just off the main entrance, the A&E entrance is around the other side of the building. The whole hospital is based on a round theme and had three huge circles as you can see by this pic. which is not one of mine.
It’s so large you can see it for miles. In fact you could see it from our back garden before we moved house. Behind this building is the Maternity hospital which is the only place I ever spent any time before this year. In fact the last time I stayed at the Maternity hospital was just two months after this hospital opened.
This week I’ve been here three times. The first with my eldest daughter after her sewing machine accident. Then on Friday for my physio therapy session. Finally yesterday morning to pick my eldest up after she had a check up to see how her recovery from surgery last month was going. 
In January I was confined in the first round building. They are called doughnuts because this is only half of the circle and there is a big gap in the middle. I didn’t get one of the better views that I know must be on offer. In fact all I could see from my window was more hospital. Lucky me!

    Hope everything ok with your eldest Anne. Must say, the hospital is an intriguing design … I wonder if it was for practical reasons (more room?). x

    My daughter is fine now Shaz, thanks for asking. I have no idea why the hospital was built that way, it's quite weird inside and out but there is a lot of space, even the wards are spacious and nearly half the entire wards are single rooms. x

    Oh that sounds good (single rooms). Guess that's the good thing about it being modern! Have a good week Anne. X

    Great building, sorry you have seen it so much this month

    That is quite an interesting building. It must be built that way to be able to maximize the lighting in the building. A donut shape has more windows. I hope you and your family are well, and have to go to that building as little as possible.

    what a lovely looking hospital, but then clean and practical inside is more needed than posh looking from the outside. I like the colour blocks on the outside #mysundayphoto

    Circular plan is a perfect hospital plan and looks massive! #mysundayphoto

    I can never understand how buildings of such size manage to run in such an efficient manner. The number of staff in such places must be so high. I hope you don't see too much of it in the coming weeks.

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.
