My Sunday Photo 3rd June 2018


We went out for the day on Friday, a visit to Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Centre. It’s not very far away and it’s somewhere we’ve been before. I would have liked to have ventured further but Star was adamant that she didn’t want to go out and when she’s like that, forcing her just makes things worse.

The morning was stressful. We’d talked about our day out but she’d changed her mind about going. Not only that but the other two didn’t want to go  either. But we managed to persuade them and with the Conservation Centre being local and familiar we got them to agree to go.

We had a little meltdown in the car park but everything changed once we were in there and it turned out to be a lovely day. The sun came out, the animals were playing and the kids had a great time. Sometimes you have to know when it’s worth the effort to persuade an autistic child to do something they don’t want to. It can end in disaster or fun, and this day turned out to be really good.

There was also some new things that we’d not seen before. One was the tree person which I’ve used as my Sunday photo. The other was a playground which the kids really enjoyed. There were also some new animals but I will write more about the things we saw later.

    That is so cool, although I think my kids would be a little freaked if they saw that LOL

    How cool is that tree.

    It sounds like a wonderful place to visit.

    Have a great Sunday and thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto

    I’m glad it turned into a good day in the end….
    That tree is fab! I love it x

    Glad the day turned out well in the end. It’s hard enough persuading teenagers to go out sometimes.

    That is so neat! I would love to have seen someone carving that. I’m glad you had a good day out too.

    We were supposed to go to a botanical garden today but they wouldn’t answer their phone and I needed to get info not on their website. I think I would have enjoyed your trip more. That looks like a Game of Thrones tree, VERY cool.

    glad to hear you persevered and your day turned out to be a fun one for everybody

    Sorry to read of the meltdown. I think tree carvers are amazingly talented. #MySundayPhoto

    I’m glad your day worked well in the end. I love the face and his crown of branches.

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.
