Word of the Week – Appointments

After a busy week last week I was kind of hoping this week to be less so. It hasn’t really turned out that way. I’d have loved to have had a week full of pyjama days, but that was not to be. It would have been nice to have had a week of fun days, but we haven’t even managed that. Apart from the usual shopping, it’s been appointments taking up our time.

G.P. appointments, clinic appointments and an appointment at the hospital for Star.

The good news is that we are getting lots of help for both The Little Man and Star from the Clinic (although for Star it means our least favourite treatment, but we’ve done it before so we’ll do it again.) The Little Man is being referred elsewhere which means he will be assessed for Autism or just to see what’s bothering him.

Then at the hospital we saw the maxillo-facial doctor who assured us that her jaw would get better in time and that the problems she had were quite common. I know, I already have a daughter who has had it for 18 years! The difference with Star is that she has Elhers Danlos Syndrome which means she has lax ligaments. If her jaw doesn’t improve quite quickly then it could cause permanent damage. Because of this the Doctor is going to see her again. Fingers crossed that it just improves with the exercises she’s been given. I hate to see my little girl (okay, not so little anymore) in pain.

What have you been up to this week?

    Sorry you have had a week full of appointments. We haven’t had any weeks like that for a while. Appointments can be such a drain and I always end up turning to cake. I hope Star feels better soon #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.
