Happy Birthday Big Brother!

It was my big brother’s birthday on Friday and we all went out for a meal. It’s always good catching up with family, we all had a great time.

My brother was already a teenager when I was born, in fact I had two teenage brothers who were both married by the time I was seven. I also had a younger brother, so I was one of four with a big age gap.

My eldest brother had two children with his first wife, a boy and a girl. They were both teenagers before he had his third child with his second wife.. He went on to have another little girl.

I had two children with my first husband, a boy and a girl. They were both teenagers before I had my third child with my second husband, a little girl. I then had another girl and finally a boy.

Do you see the pattern?

If I’d stopped at the two girls I’d have exactly the same pattern of children as my brother, and only a slightly different pattern to our Mother.

Back to the Birthday Bash, as you can see, the kids had fun too!

Oh Dear! I just remembered that last week I promised a photo of our new family member! Well, okay, I don’t want to disappoint. Say hello to Ash, our new kitten. when he grows up he wants to be a tiger!

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.
