Word of the Week - Christmas!


With Christmas Day so close now it has to be the word of my week. This week has been very Christmas focused, with Christmas food shopping and present wrapping. But my favourite thing about Christmas is joining the kids at school for activities and concerts.

This year both schools (which are really one school but the younger ones haven't moved over to the new building yet) have had Christmas Wonderland Events. On Tuesday we were at the big school where we were treated to hot chocolate and mince pies while we pottered around the stalls decorating Christmas hats and baubles, playing pin the nose on the reindeer and other games and purchasing Christmas cards designed by the children, as well as lots of other stuff. One thing we did enjoy was having selfies with Father Christmas, even I had a go. There were props too and hubby gave Father Christmas a sign pointing to me which said naughty. I was not happy and promptly told FC that I'd been a very good girl and he promised that he would bring me lots of presents on Christmas Eve. I'm sorted!

After the Wonderland the school gave a concert (But not until after the raffle was drawn where I won a box of 12 Christmas cupcakes!) The kids at that school are incredibly talented. They do focus on the music lessons and have what they call 'band musicianship where the children are encouraged to play instruments of their choice and create their own bands. They even have a recording studio. Star wasn't in this particular performance but I still enjoyed the show.

Then yesterday we had the  Winter Wonderland at the little school which was very similar but still lots of fun. errr I won the raffle again! This time we had a choice of prizes and I sent Boo to choose and she came back with a cake, she wasn't impressed when I told her it was a fruit cake though.

There's been only one dampener on the week though and that was my eldest daughter getting sick yesterday. I'm just hoping we don't all come down with it now but I do have a sneaky feeling it was something she ate, dodgy mayonnaise.

Merry Christmas!

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.
