My Sunday Photo 20th July 2018

This week was the final week for Boo in Primary School as she was a year six leaver.

My Sunday Photo(s) this week are to celebrate some of the fun stuff she did in the last year at school.

The Heart of England Forest.

As a treat for doing so well during SATS week the class was treated to a trip to The Heart of England Forest in South Warwickshire.

This is Boo with her best friend. She has lots of friends at school but seems to be drawn to the ones who are a little different. Boo could easily fit in with the ‘popular’ girls but instead prefers to choose friendships she can trust and give something back to.

Kingswood Residential

Just last month Boo spent two nights away from home on a residential trip. She joined in with everything and had a really good time. Here is a photo of her abseiling, which she found really scary, but she did it anyway.

She is quite a timid girl, but with the right encouragement she will generally give anything a go. She loved being on the residential trip, she enjoyed all the team work and the opportunity to enjoy things she wouldn’t normally get the chance to do. I worry that she does miss out on a lot of stuff. We avoid things because of Star’s disabilities, and it’s even worse since I became disabled. It’s so good that she can get the opportunity to do these kind of things.

In this next photo she is again with her best friend. She told me all about the tumbling tower with such great excitement. Her friend kept falling off before they’d finished building the tower, but Boo was there to catch her every time.

I’m so proud of my little girl, she never fails to surprise and delight me. She has a heart of gold and always kind to others. At the leavers assembly she was awarded with the trophy for being artfully creative and her teacher said to watch out for her name on the shelves of Waterstones in the future.

We have already talked about her writing a book and Star will help with the illustrations. Maybe we can make this our task for the Summer!

    Aww! Well done Boo! My daughter is 6 and heading for Y2 in Sep. She’s classed as a “Young carer” due to her brother’s and her dad’s care needs. She is amazing and also always befriends the children who need a little more support. Maybe it’s a special needs sibling thing? Either way, it looks like Boo has had an amazing Year 6 and is a total credit to you 🙂

      I think it definitely is a SEND sibling thing. Her sister is autistic and Boo has 3 autistic friends at school, her other friend is profoundly deaf. She is truly caring x

    Lovely outdoor photos. Boo sounds a wonderful girl and I love that she by passes the popular girls for those she can find true friendship with.

    What beautiful weather for such a great trip. It looks like they had a blast!

    Hi Anne, it’s lovely that the class got treated for doing well in their SATs and what better way than getting out in nature. Boo is far braver than me, you wouldn’t get me abseiling for love nor money. I like having two feet on the ground. And as for that tumbling tower? How fun and team building… Boo sounds a wise girl too, sometimes it can take a lifetime to realise that people who are different are far more interesting!

    What a lovely post about a lovely girl! I do enjoy hearing about kids’ special friendships. Good luck to her for secondary school!

    How wonderful to have such a great year.

    Way to go Boo, that is awesome. I felt the same with my son earlier this year, it’s a big step but was so proud. Love the photos and sounds like she’s ready for the next step. Hope you have a great summer xxx

    Looks like a great end to primary school. I hope she thrives in Y7.

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.
