Word of the Week – Blur

Is it really Friday already?

This week has passed in a blur. Last Friday I was okay, but then I woke in the night with a migraine. I managed to go downstairs and take one of my migraine pills (completely forgetting I had an emergency supply hidden in my bedside drawer) Around 4am I was feeling a hundred times worse so OH had  to go and fetch my forehead ice pad and painkillers. I didn’t get any better.

Saturday was a blur, as was Sunday. The pain relief was doing nothing. I was doing nothing.

Monday I started to feel a little better, as in I just had a headache from hell.

Tuesday, the headache was still present but at least I could move and watch television again.

Wednesday came the migraine hangover. I was sick and dizzy but my head was clearing.

Thursday I could drive again…yeah. I also managed to get on with a cake I’ve been commissioned to do this week, thankfully not a too complicated design.

I went to a Blogger Event yesterday evening which was nice but I did kind of feel like I wasn’t really there. It’s really difficult to explain, everything sounds and looks different and it’s hard to focus.

Today my head is clear and I feel almost normal again. I’m just kind of at a loss as to where this week went. I could easily have dreamt it all and we could be back to last Friday.

I really can’t tell you how I’ve managed to get the kids to school each day, cook and clean all week, I guess it’s a kind of overdrive where our bodies continue to do our chores without the brain being present?

My next step is to get myself excited about going to a gig tomorrow night. I’ve waited for months having buying my tickets during the five minute sell out period. Now, the thought of all that noise is scaring the life out of me. I think I may be getting old *sigh* which is probably going to be next weeks word of the week…I can feel it coming!

    Glad to know you're feeling better. I abhor headaches and toothaches! #wotw.

      Thanks Kim, I was ready to give up my ticket but I'm going to risk it. x

    Oh no. I thought I spotted you last night – Smiggle? But when I turned around again, you'd gone! Sorry to hear it's been a rough week, hope you can enjoy your gig x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

      Yes, I saw you too. It was very crowded though and I was already dazed so didn't really talk much to anyone. I hope people didn't think I was being ignorant, I did say hello when I could. x

    Glad you're feeling better now. Migraines have become a part of my life again and the helplessness with young children to take care of is so frustrating and upsetting. I hope the next attack is a long, long way away. I hope you have a fab time at the gig 🙂

      Thanks Debbie, and yes it is really hard when you have young ones to care for as well. I'm lucky that I have another three adults in the home so there is always someone to help when I'm really ill. x

    Wow. I'm lucky enough to say I've never experienced a migraine – it sounds blooming horrible. Glad to hear you're feeling a bit more like yourself now though X #wotw

      Thanks Samantha, I hope you manage to always stay migraine free, I wouldn't wish one on my worst enemy. x

    I have days like this. Like I am walking my son to school and yet I am not there. I am paying attention of course esp when we are in the sidewalk but .. its hard to explain. Glad that you are getting better. #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.
