My Sunday Photo – 12th November 2017

A blast from the past today, September 2008. My two little girls in a shopping trolley in Asda. I love this photo so much, no only do my girls look incredibly cute but this was a shopping trip with my Mum. She wasn’t well, but I had no idea that I only had three months left with her. She never even got to meet The Little Man.

We were talking about Nanny today, of course Boo doesn’t remember her, but Star does, she remembers her stair lift. Nanny would let her sit on her lap to ride up the stairs. She also remembers Daddy taking her to the chip shop when we visited Nanny’s house on Friday afternoons. It was only a short walk, but it was across parkland, so very memorable for a three year old. I wonder how long those memories will last though? Do you remember anything from when you were three?

The Little Man asked when she died and I told him it was on Christmas Day. He gasped and asked in a timid voice if Santa had killed her. I had to laugh, ‘of course not,’ I told him, ‘Santa would never kill anyone he’s a nice person.’  I hope he doesn’t think that Santa would do something like that, I can imagine him not being able to sleep on Christmas Eve for very different reasons to any other child!

I’m on a mission to get 1000 followers on my Facebook Page, would you join me there and make my day?

I pin My Sunday Photo pics I visit on my Pinterest Board. Please let me know if you wish your photo to be removed.

    What a lovely photo and lovely memories. I don't think I can remember anything from when I was 3! My eldest can just about remember my grandparents. They died when he was 4.

    Ah what a special photo and I'm so sorry you lost your mum. I think memories and stories can last forever as long as you keep telling them. Hope little man sleeps well Christmas Eve (that bit made me smile ;))

    It's nice to remember the good times you've had with your mum. And your little man's question is too funny! I'm sure he'll still hold Santa in high regard! It's a lovely photo of your girls. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh that is a lovely photo of Boo and Star and what a lovely memory too look back on. Isn't it funny the things that little ones get in their mind. Hopefully you've managed to reassure Little Man with regards to Santa. I have some lovely memories of my nan who died when I was five. Some of my memories must be from when I was around three as she moved house around that time and I remember her in both her old house and the one she lived in when she died x

    What adorable faces. That age is a great time to be around little ones.

    My son still likes to sit in the trolley because he quite small. I don't know how long this will continue for but I am worried he will get wedged in one day!

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.
