My Sunday Photo 10th December 2017

Yikes! This time in just two weeks it will be Christmas Eve!!
As it’s getting so close now I’ve decided to share some Christmas photos taken at Hatton’s Enchanted Christmas Kingdom a couple of weeks ago. Yes, we got our visit to Father Christmas in  early and letters were written and sent. Phew, that’s one thing less to worry about, I just hope Father Christmas brings them all that they wished for.

We really enjoyed the grotto at Hatton, it was magical to wander around. I’ll leave my 3 minute tour video at the end of this post if you are interested.
In the meantime Christmas preparations are in full swing here, I have begun the big wrap up and cards are being written. The food is ordered and last minute presents  sent for. I’m taking part in two Secret Santa’s this year and I’ve already received one of my gifts. I’ll be posting mine off on Monday.

Are you ready for Christmas? Are you feeling festive?

    Hi Anne, the Enchanted Christmas Kingdom looks magical and I hope that Father Christmas brings your children all they wished for too. Christmas Eve is actually my favourite day. It's far more magical than Christmas Day… Our house is looking like a grotto now, which is a bit early for us, although the tree has yet to be decorated. I don't have much wrapping to do as we don't have many to buy for, but I hope to do it this week (but doubt very much that I will!).

    Lovely Christmas photo! I've done most of my shopping and some of my wrapping. The cards are written with stamps on, ready to go in the box tomorrow. Will still be a week or more until we get our tree though.

    What a magical day out this looks. A great reason to get wrapped up and go out in the cold. It looks like a winter wonderland there.

    Isn't it great when you get things like Santa visits out of the way early? We might be skipping the traditional Santa photo this year, as we ran into a Santa at a downtown event last week and got some fun impromptu photos with him there.
    Your photos are beautiful!

    What a magical seasonal place!

    Looks like this was a really Santa's grotto. You have to be so careful these days as so many can be grotty grottoes!

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.
