Word of the Week - Nutcracker

It's been a busy week. I've had good news - a call from my consultant about further treatment, bad news - about the Little Man at school and heartbreaking news - about my poor cat Salem. But I don't really feel like talking about any of these now so my word of the week reflects the brilliant birthday present one of my friends gave me.

On Tuesday evening I fulfilled a life long wish of visiting a ballet. My friend took me to see The Birmingham Royal Ballet perform The Nutcracker. As a child I always dreamed of becoming a ballet dancer, but I was too tall, too clumsy and lacked any sort of grace, never mind dancing ability. My Dad loved to watch the ballet on television and would often draw me pictures of little ballet dancers which probably inspired my passion. I've always wanted to see a ballet performance but it's something I've never got around to, or never really had anyone to go with before. When I told my friend she said she would take a look at what was on, and then she booked tickets as a birthday present. 

It was a truly magical performance, the stage sets were amazing and the dancers simply beautiful. I loved every moment. We also had front row seats which was brilliant. I'd definitely love to go again sometime, I'm sure my girls would love it too. 

So my word of the week this week is Nutcracker. And a big thank you to my lovely friend.

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.
