Word of the Week – Calm

This week has been pretty lazy. After overdoing things a little last week I’ve been taking some time to chill out.
Saying that I’ve also been getting a lot of appointments through the post so although this week has been relatively calm, it feels like it’s the calm before the storm.

Over the next two weeks I have two physio appointments for myself, two hospital appointments for my daughter (1 CT scan and 1 with the Opthalmologist) 3 dentist appointments (me, No1 son and OH) and an appointment at the kids school.

I also have Blog Camp next weekend to go to, that will be the first time I go out on my own this year!

Then in just over two weeks we have our holiday to Blackpool. The first time we’ve been away for three years.

So this week is Calm week….and I’m making the most of it.

Also, did you realise, Calm stands for Campaign Against Living Miserably? (for men)
So, I’m not expecting a Storm, just a Whirlwind and I’ll ride it with a smile on my face.

    Make the most of the calm. Your calendar must be filling up. Hopefully all the appointments don't fall on the same day. #wotw

    Sounds like you are going to be very very busy! I think that its a good idea to rest now so that you will have all the enrgy to finish the things that you need to finish! Have fun with the blogcamp! Its something that I dream to do but I dont have budget to do =) #wotw

    glad things are calm at the moment despite everything coming up. Some times of the year get like that with appointments don't they. I know that when miss T's appointments all fall at the same time there have been weeks that we have had something medical every single day of the week! x

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.
