Changes - Word of the Week

This week Star has been doing assessments at school. Basically, they are being assessed on how well they are doing in each subject so that they can be put into the correct learning groups. Star isn't finding the assessments difficult but what she has found difficult are the changes in the school routine. The school is doing it's best to make the time in between the assessments fun and breaking it all up, but it's not the usual routine, it has all changed and Star doesn't like changes. We have had very mixed emotions from her. On Tuesday she came home excited and chatty because of the fun activities they had been doing. On Wednesday she came home tearful because she spends Thursday morning talking to a counsellor and she had been told that she wouldn't be able to do that this week. I keep telling her it's just for one week, and now that week is over, all she has to do is get through today.

I've made a decision to make a major change to my diet. After lots of research, I have decided to change to a Paleo diet. It seems pretty drastic at first glance but I think it's do-able. There is so much you have to cut out but there are plenty of alternatives. I have already changed cows milk for almond milk or coconut milk, and stopped having butter. I just need to find an alternative cheese. I will find it difficult giving up cereal for breakfast but I'm checking out alternatives. In all it's going to mean some big changes, but I have done my research. A paleo diet is the best for helping with my auto-immune condition. I'm thinking that if I go onto the next stage of treatment and get some good results then my diet will help to keep me well for longer. I do live in hope.

Another change is that we have committed ourselves to getting out more by joining the National Trust. We often end up not going out anywhere because we just don't know where to go, but now there is no excuse. There are loads of places for us to visit within a day trip distance so we are making plans. I realise that being in a wheelchair will cause problems with a lot of the buildings, most of them I can only see downstairs, but as the weather brightens up we can still go and visit the gardens which will be lovely. I'm really looking forward to it now.

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.
