Word of the Week -Expectations

It was difficult to choose a word this week, not because so much of what happened is not linked but because I couldn’t fit it all into a neat category. I chose Expectations because nearly everything we expected to happen didn’t and we had to change plans so many times.

On Monday we were going out for the day but forgot to charge my wheelchair so had to cancel. It was such a lovely sunny day though so we decided to go to the park instead with my manual wheelchair. When we got there hubby had forgotten the foot rests so I had to walk with my sticks instead.

On Tuesday we decided to have our day out and although we had originally thought about going to Stourport on Severn, we ended up going to Stratford on Avon instead. I had hoped for a picnic by the riverside but the weather had changed and we decided that a meal inside was the best bet, of course the kids wanted to go to Mc Donalds!

We did go down to the river but we got a little lost and ended up walking down the canal instead. Things were not going right so I decided on one of my back up plans, we went to the MAD museum. Just a short walk away from the river (Canal) front and right in the middle of the town, you could be almost forgiven for missing the MAD museum. It’s not a huge place but it is jam packed with things to see and interact with. MAD stands for Mechanical Art Design and some of the pieces were outstanding.

I’ll be writing up a full post on our visit soon, I even have a lot of video footage to sort out.

Wednesday we stayed home and chilled but on Thursday I had an appointment for blood tests and ECG. I wanted to go to Tesco after the appointment and there is one just a few minutes from home. However, I was informed last minute that what I wanted was not available there so we went to the next nearest Tesco which is actually in a lovely village down lots of winding country lanes. Quite different to what we were expecting from a Tesco visit.

As you can see, a lot of our expectations where not reached, but we made the best of everything that was thrown in the way and I can say we’ve had a good week.

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.
