My Sunday Photo – 19th February 2017

I’ve not been out much this week, I’ve been home recovering from pneumonia. I’m happy to report that I’m feeling much better now though and today I should be out with my family visiting an aeroplane museum.

I had a lack of photos to show you, so, I’ve decided to go with something that has featured a lot this week of recovery, books! I managed to get myself a stack of lovely notebooks and I already have plans for them all. The kids also have new notebooks which they are filling with drawings and writing. They really do take after me.

We have also had some lovely books to review this week for the kids.

Last weekend there was a Terry Pratchett Documentary on television and of course, I had to watch it. I learned a few new things from the program and one comment really made me feel sad and I admit I was paid a visit by the onion fairy. What could be worse for someone with a great mind full of amazing stories than to lose everything to Alzheimer’s?

Anyway, a couple of days later these arrived in the post.

They are the first two books of the Discworld series (irritatingly photographed the wrong way around, what can I say, I wasn’t well!) With new hardback covers. My eldest daughter had bought them for me. It was a  lovely surprise. Thinking about it, when I first discovered Terry Pratchett I actually read The Light Fantastic before The Colour of Magic, so maybe the photograph was meant to be?

Next week I hope to bring you some fabulous aeroplane photos. Have a good week.

    What a fabulous surprise from your daughter. I love the new covers, are you going to collect the set? (Maybe you'd need an extra bookshelf too!) Hope you're feeling better. #MMBC

    Hi Anne, what pretty notebooks you have! It's a shame you never made it to the aeroplane museum, but lovely that your daughter surprised you with books you enjoy.

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.
