MAD - Word of the Week


No, I'm not MAD, although some might disagree. My word of the week is MAD which stands for Mum and Dad and I'm  a finalist in the 2016 blog Awards! I've been a finalist three times now, I've never won and you know what they say, three times a bridesmaid, never a bride. Well, I really don't expect to win, I'm up against some fabulous bloggers in my category, Schooldays. 

Sarah from Extraodinary Chaos
Jenny from Let's talk Mommy
Karen from Stopping At Two

Good luck everyone! I'm looking forward to meeting you.

I also need to give a shout out to Steph from Steph's Two Girls who is up for an outstanding contribution award. I've been with Steph every time I've been at the awards but this is the first time she's actually been a finalist so I'm so chuffed for her. She does a brilliant job at educating everyone about a specific type of autism, PDA, and helps so many people along the way. My fingers are tightly crossed for her x

So, thoughts of the awards have occupied my mind all week, I've my dress, shoes, bag, train tickets, hotel reservation and babysitters sorted for the littlies. I'm excited to be having a night away with my partner, we've never been away alone before. He needs to come with me this year as I just can't cope alone with my disabilities.

It's going to be a fabulous night and I wish everyone there the best of luck and if you don't win, don't worry,  it's still wonderful to have made it this far and it's such a wonderful event to be part of.

I'd like to say a big Thank You to everyone who took the time to nominate and vote for me. It really means so much to me.

In other news...in case you read my word of the week a couple of weeks ago I'd like to report that I can now drive my car! Actually driving with your hands is pretty easy, I just need to learn to brake a little more gently.

Also, I had a visit with my consultant which I talk about more later. I waited 8 months for this appointment and learnt quite a lot. I also had some new medication which might help my spasms. I'm still recovering but I've lots of hope to get much better.

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.
