Word of the Week – Lost

This has been one strange week. Starting with Bank Holiday Monday, maybe we should have planned to do something but we didn’t. We stayed home and it felt like just another day. I guess coming so soon after the Easter holiday it just didn’t feel like a holiday, and  hence, it didn’t feel like Monday. Monday is a school and work day, I was lost and confused all day as to what day it actually was.

Then on Tuesday it was back to school. Last week it was supposed to have been p.e. day for the Little Man on Tuesday. The new school rules are that on p.e. day they go to school in their p.e. kits. Only, last week the teacher told them not to go in on Tuesday in their kits but to wear them on Wednesday instead. It was a little confusing as to what was going on, but this week it was even more confusing. None of the parents or the children seemed to know whether it was p.e. on Tuesday or Wednesday this week and we were all confused and lost. I decided to send the Little Man in his uniform but to take his kit with him. When they got to school his Dad decided that seeing all of his classmates apart from two in uniform that it was safe to assume it wasn’t p.e. and left his kit in the car. It was p.e on Tuesday. Are you lost? I am!

Wednesday was an interesting day. Star was off school as she was feeling poorly, but I figured this was okay because she had an appointment with the nurse and it was more convenient having her off school rather than having to take her out of school and then take her back. So, off we went for the appointment only to find we were a week early. I think I’d purely lost my mind on this one, I don’t know how I got it so wrong.

Thursday was voting day so the young ones had no school as it was being used as a polling station. We had one of the  Little Man’s school friends spend the day with us. The whole days routine was turned upside down and I was not feeling well to boot. By Dinner time I was convinced it was Monday! I don’t know why, my marbles were well and truly lost by now.

Friday is going to be an interesting, let me see if I can get things right today. I’m half expecting to find that The Word of Week Linky isn’t open because it’s Tuesday or Sunday or whatever, I give up! Next week has to be more straightforward!

    You're not the only one who has been confused with the days this week. I don't know if I'm coming or going with the bank holidays and random days off school. The schools pe policy sounds confusing for all. We just leave our kits there all week so it's always there f the plans change, much less confusing! I hope things are more straight forward next week and you no longer feel lost x #wotw

    Ahh! I have been confused with what day it is too….
    Next week will be the first time in a month that my girls have had a Monday at school. Easter holidays, teachers training days and Bank holidays confuse things so much.
    The P.E kit situation just seems like a lot of faff….

    At least you've got the day right today! It does sound like a confusing week. Having a bank holiday and days off throws me too. Hope Star feels better soon. #WotW

    Oh, I know this feeling, it has been one of those weeks! With my girl off Monday and Thursday, my mind off on my assignment and then having to run a few errands that have thrown out our routine, I've been confused, too! Maybe next week we'll get things right?! x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    I think you can be completely forgiven for being confused. It took the whole week for me to catch up. Your PE routine sounds confusing at the best of times. Here's to a week of routine. #wotw

    I'm not surprised you were lost Anne ! nothing like a bank holiday and a school that can't make up it's mind to throw you through a loop. Hope this coming week is a little less confusing. #WotW

    Oh no! I can see how frustrating it was with sports day and bank holiday. I once mixed up the whole weekend and tried to do everything on the same day! #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.
