My Sunday Photo 29th October 2017

We finally got our pumpkins!
We had a great time carving them, it was so good to have somewhere to do them and have someone else clean up all the mess. I wish I had bought some pumpkin seeds home to roast though…I may just have to go and buy another one now.
Until we moved into this house four years ago we didn’t really do anything at Halloween. However, our new neighbourhood enjoy all the fun of trick and treating. I’m really not sure if I actually approve or not. I don’t really see it as a time for celebration and the kids going around begging for sweets just doesn’t seem right. But then I like seeing them getting dressed up and having fun, and it brings a sense of community with all the kids knocking on the doors. We’ve never had any trouble, all the kids are well behaved and they always have parents with them. 
I don’t decorate the house, or have a party, but we do like to put our lanterns outside. 
Here’s one for this year, all ready to go.
Do you celebrate Halloween?

    We're about the same as you with Halloween! We don't have a party or decorate the house, but my daughter dresses up and goes trick or treating to people we know. It's really friendly walking round the village and seeing everyone dressed up. I really enjoy it!

    Pumpkins have really taken off as a big thing this year, look like you have embraced it in style

    We carved ours yesterday too. The girls had great fun. I never bothered with Halloween until I had kids. They love to get dressed up. They want to go trick or treating…I have said we will see what the weather is like. x

    Hi Anne, it's nice to feel a part of the local community. I must say that growing up I don't remember Halloween being such a big thing, we did or rather Dad did carve a swede and I remember apple bobbing at Brownies whilst wearing a black bag binliner cape and a sad black cardboard hat. Oh, how things have changed… Have fun!

    I've never really made much fuss of Halloween but my two have been really excited for it this year. Great pumpkin, I made soup and roasted the seeds!

    Nice lantern! We also don't decorate our house with all those scary things, but we usually have a lantern outside. We like the process of making it.

    That looks a little Minecraft inspired. I think the pumpkins lining the front gardens this year have really made a lovely display.

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.
