My Sunday Photo December 2nd 2018

It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

The tree is up!

Yesterday we decided to put up the Christmas decorations.  Boo had gone out with a friend for the day but Star and the Little Man were quite keen to help with the tree and in fact I just let them get on with it. 

We’ve chosen a new home for the tree this year and it’s a bigger space than usual. Now, I’m thinking that my tree looks way too small. Or my kids are getting real big. Or a mixture of both. After Christmas I’m getting rid of this tree and buying a new, bigger one next year. 

I always think Christmas trees look better in the window, when I was growing up we always lived in houses with big bay windows and that would be were our Tree was put up each year. In this house we do not even have a window! What we do have is large patio doors, but you can’t really put a tree in front of them. 

Ah, we don’t even have a chimney for poor Father Christmas!

Have you put up your Christmas decorations yet?

    Lovely photo! My husband is obsessed with the idea of getting a bay window one day just because it would be nice with a Christmas tree! We won’t put ours up for another couple of weeks yet.

    No decorations up here yet, trying to clear some space for them – he looks very pleased with his handy work

    What a fabulous smile!! I love going past houses with trees in bay windows. Straight out of a children’s picture book. #MySundayPhoto

    Hi Anne, I like to see Christmas trees twinkling away nicely in windows too, but ours won’t fit. Many years ago we got a tree that’s far too big for the house really, but as tatty and old as it is now I can’t get rid of it (it would unsettle Mum to see me getting rid of tatty old things – don’t tell her that though!)… We don’t put up the decorations until Mid December, which won’t be long now!

    Aww what a lovely tree and he looks very happy with it. What a smile. I love all the colours xx #sundaysnap

    I just pulled our “small” tree up from the basement. I enjoy having a little tree in our little space. Less to decorate and it makes the gift load look huge! But really the tree is only for us – we don’t host people at all over the season. I’m going to let the girls get decorating later this week!

      We have just one day of relatives visiting, and that happens to be this weekend. Otherwise Christmas is very much for ourselves. Have fun with the tree decorating. x

    Your tree is darling. I’m waiting for my birthday next week before I think about Christmas stuff. That’s always my excuse for not paying attention to Christmas in the first weeks of the month. lol

      My birthday is at the end of November, no Christmas thoughts at all until it’s passed 🙂 Happy Birthday for next week x

    They did a fine job with the tree! Love that proud and happy smile!! I haven’t done our winter decorations yet, next week for sure. I tend to keep them around until late January, sometimes February 🙂

    When my son was a toddler we put the tree at the top of the stairs and now the kids say they prefer it there!

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.
