Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day has been a difficult time for me for a long time. I fell out with my mum for five years and Mother's Day was always the worst. Then I decided to send her a card, I didn't even know where she lived and had to ask my auntie to deliver it. A couple of days later I received a letter from her with her phone number. It took a while but we did become close again. She was around for the births of my two little girls which was lovely. Then she passed away on Christmas Day 2008 after being diagnosed with cancer just two weeks before. So Mother's Day became miserable again. I visited the grave this year laden with flowers, because flowers are the only gift I can give, Mother's Day, Birthday, Christmas. I miss her every day and always will.

This year I decided that despite missing my mum I would still be able to enjoy Mother's Day. My little ones made me some lovely cards at school. The Little Man brought home a cupcake and a little plant. I'm surprised the cupcake lasted until we got home, he couldn't wait to eat it! Star made me a necklace from beads she threaded herself. Boo and the Little Man made me some paper flowers at church this morning. It's also customary at our church to receive a bunch of daffodils on Mother's Day.

For my Mother-in-law I made a cake. It was her birthday earlier this week and I bought her loads of presents so I figured a card and home-made cake would be fine for Mother's Day.

So today I'm feeling happy to be a Mother and incredibly blessed that I have my five wonderful children.

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 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.
