My Sunday Photo – 26th November 2017

bare trees sitting against a background of pink clouds at sunset.
If you follow me on Instagram then you may have noticed that  I like to photograph the trees at the end of my garden. I have them in the Spring when leaves and blossom are just beginning to grow, in the Summer when they are full and heavy with leaves and birds, in the Autumn when the leaves are changing colour and in the Winter when they are bare and barren. Just like they are in this photo. But it wasn’t the trees that caught my eye, but this lovely pink sunset.
I don’t know if it’s still a ‘thing’ but I remember it once being an insult saying “what’s the colour of the sky on your planet” meaning that you are behaving more than a little weird or alien. Well, I’d like to live on a planet where they sky was always pink or purple. 
This day my sky was pink, but I wasn’t being weird, I was just changing the bedclothes when I saw it and grabbed my phone to take a photo….or maybe that is weird?
p.s. this was me this time last year! 
It’s also my birthday and it was to make my hubby’s life a little easier not having to remember two separate occasions. I’m pleased to say, he didn’t forget my birthday present this year 🙂 

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

    Happy anniversary and birthday! Not at all weird to jump out of bed to photograph the sky, I do it all the time!

    Happy birthday and happy anniversary! I've never heard that phrase about the sky, but I would totally choose a pink sky too!

    Ahh Happy Birthday and happy anniversary. Such a gorgeous picture of you!! I love a beautiful sky and pink ones are just so nice. I sometimes wonder if people in Norway (who get regular sight of the northern lights) see photos of our pink ones and think "ooh that's pretty!"

    Hi Anne, I hope you had a fantastic birthday and was spoiled rotten!… And Happy 1st Anniversary too!… Very clever, we should have tried this except it's me who usually forgets our anniversary!… I don't see that saying as an insult either, I'd be more than happy to live on any planet (provided there was chocolate) if the sky was always so pretty.

    What a lovely photo, I love sunset skies at this time of year. Happy birthday and anniversary! (clever trick by the way!)

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.
