Shoes - Word of the Week!

Lots of things have happened this week but the strangest thing has to be Star's shoe.
The kids didn't go to school on Monday as it was an inset day. On Tuesday morning we couldn't find one Star's shoes. To prevent them from being too late for school we had to send her in her trainers. She has about 4 pairs of black shoes but there was something wrong with every pair, too tight, strap broken, heel too worn on one side (it's the way she walks.)
We spent the whole day looking for her other shoe, including going through the bins. When they came home from school on Friday last week, the last time both shoes were seen, we were in the middle of cleaning out the cupboard under the stairs and threw away a big bag of unused shoes. So we thought maybe her shoe had got mixed up in those, but no, it was a waste of time.

When we hadn't found the shoe by the time they came home from school I decided to buy her a new pair. We have continued looking for her shoe, but it hasn't shown up...very strange!

By the way, here are her new shoes, just 3 days old and she's managed to scuff them badly!

I know they were only cheap shoes, but aaarrrggh!

Anyway, apart from the shoe incident we have had quite an exciting week.

 Star spent the day at her new secondary school and she loved it. She will also spend 3 days there in the summer holidays so the transition in September should be fairly easy. She had a free school meal in the canteen and she said she loved it and there was loads to choose last, no more sandwiches!

Then we had Eldest Daughter's birthday. We all went out to a nice restaurant for a meal. We had a lovely time and filled our tummies with some lovely food like this....

Today the kids are having a pirates and aliens day at school and have had to dress up. Star and the Little Man usually refuse to dress up for anything but today they have. I can't wait to see them do their special assembly later.

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.
