Why Does Half Term Go By So Quickly?

It's now Saturday affernoon and on Monday the kids will be going back to school after half term.
I love having them home, we can chill out, we don't have to rush in the morning, we can do lots of things together.

So why do I feel like we've just wasted a week?

Last weekend we went out both Saturday and Sunday. We browsed the shops on Saturday and bought some new craft supplies. Then on Sunday we spent the whole day at Cosford Royal Airforce museum.

But, we haven't been out since. Monday the weather was kind but the weekend had taken it's toll and I was in too much pain to go out. The Little Man and his big brother played in the garden for over an hour which was nice. The girls stayed in all day but they didn't mind.

The rest of the week has passed so quickly and I was feeling upset that we hadn't achieved much. Maybe that's not a bad thing. I mean the kids are stuck to a routine all week at school, they are out every day and busy all the time. Maybe, it's okay just to chill out and not do much for a week?

Then I got to thinking of the things we had done in the week. We baked a lovely cake for Daddy for his birthday. In fact Boo did most of the work on this cake all by herself!

We also baked chocolate cookies, you can never have enough cookies in the house!

The kids had their arts and crafts stuff out and instead of telling them what to do I left them to just use their imaginations and create what they wanted. Boo made a book, and Star and the Little Man made some lovely art work.

I also bought the kids some new notebooks when we went out last Saturday and they have been filling them up with words and pictures all week.

We have had some lovely books to review this week and the kids have enjoyed doing lots of reading. Boo has also been learning Spanish with a book and audio. I reckon she'll pick it up really quick like this.

We had some books from Lonely Planet Kids which were full of stickers and activities and the kids have spent ages filling them in, they are  so much fun.

We've watched movies, played board games, and the kids have played with their toys.

Star has been trying to make slime at every opportunity after watching YouTube videos, she's not had good success yet but I've just ordered some stuff online for her so watch this space.

Today we are back to one of my childhood fun activities and making some pom poms!

So, is it bad that we only had a couple of days out and have spent the week indoors?

Maybe, if it's nicer weather tomorrow we can go out and blow away a few cobwebs. I don't like staying in all the time but if the kids are happy and occupied then I suppose it's okay.

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.
