School – Word of the Week

This week my word is School.

The half term is over and the kids are back at school. They went back ok, I think they do actually look forward to going back and seeing their friends. They don’t give me too much hassle anyway. I don’t like having to rush around in the morning, but it’s nice to get a little peace and quiet in the daytime. I do look forward to them coming home though.

Then just two days back and we have problems with Star. I have already written about this in detail in my previous post so I won’t repeat myself here. Things are still not good but she is still going in so hopefully she feels confident that things will improve.

Yesterday my younger kids school was on the local news because their dinner lady was chosen to cook with the chef Glyn Purnell in his restaurant. Two of the Little Man’s classmates were interviewed for the news item.

Finally, today we are invited to a special Diwali Assembly by the Little Man’s class. I’ve already had an earful of their Diwali song. It’s always nice to be invited into school for occasions like this. As my children grow up I see these days fading away.

    It's definitely all about school for you this week then. I like going in for things, too, and I am sure when Little Man starts in Reception next year I'll feel like I'm there all the time! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

    We are still on half term here our school has extended it to allow for family holidays but Daisy is raring to get back. I'm sorry to hear Star is having a tough time.

    Oh no! So sorry that things haven't improved for Star….At least she is still going in. That is a good sign.
    I hope the assembly went well….I do love things like that at school!

    Oh so true. There are less chances to join in with school events as they get older. I'm savouring the last year and a bit of my youngest being at primary. I bet the assembly was fun. Hope it all settles down for Star. #wotw

    A break from routine is good, but sometimes it's nice to get back to it. Hope today went well and that things settle oown.

    I think it's great that they are learning about different cultures. Celebrating Diwali in school is certainly a new thing to my knowledge.#WotW

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.
