My Sunday Photo – 10th June 2017

That’s the Way to Do It!!
I’ve yet to write up about our lovely holiday to Weymouth at half term even though it seems so long ago. One of the highlights was the beach, and despite this photo making it out to look cloudy, it was actually an extremely warm day, perfect for building sandcastles, paddling in the sea, eating ice cream and watching Punch and Judy puppet shows.
It’s sad to hear that Punch and Judy are a really rare sight these days, I remember them everywhere when I was a child. They haven’t changed much though and are incredibly un PC…ha ha, isn’t that ironic in this time! Oh yes it is! We had babysitting where Punch actually sat on the baby, we had wife beating, and wicked sausage loving crocodiles. The Policeman was there for comedy only as he didn’t stop any crimes and was just for shouting when Mr Punch was being very naughty! We were on the beach for two days for many hours each time and both days managed to pick a place right near the Punch and Judy show, so I managed to catch it four times in total…I was singing ‘sausages for breakfast, sausages for tea’ in my sleep.
Boo loved the show and sat in the audience each time soaking it all in. There were slight variations in each show which I guess were to help the grown ups who had to endure more than one.
Despite it being quite shocking at times, it was all in good fun and perfect beach entertainment, it will be sad when they are all gone. Imagine trying to explain to your grandkids in the future what on earth a Punch and Judy show was. 
I hope I’ve captured something of the show here, Punch and Judy are both lying down after being knocked out by the Policeman with his truncheon….oh my! 
Have you ever seen a Punch and Judy Show?

    I wonder if it would have survived at all if it had been PC. Probably stands out more because of it. I found it difficult enough to explain to my children, let alone thinking of grandchildren! We've seen this one down in Weymouth. Something about it towering on the beach that makes a British summertime seafront complete.#MySundayPhoto

    I do love the Punch & Judy at Weymouth – seen him a few times and love that he is so not PC

    What a lovely photo. I don't think my kids have ever seen a Punch & Judy show. We're going to visit our friends in Weymouth in a few weeks, so I'll look out for it!

    We had a fabulous caravan holiday in Weymouth a few years ago and one of the highlights was seeing Punch and Judy at the beach. We also saw a Punch and Judy show on the beach in North Wales. I find it funny that it doesn't seem to have changed since I was a child!

    My brother loves Punch and Judy shows and gets upsets when they are updated for modern times. The darkest one I have ever seen is when the hangman turned up after Punch was convicted of beating Judy to death!

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.
