Word of The Week – Sun

Ok it may have disappeared right now, but my word of the week this week is SUN!

We spent the entire bank holiday weekend stuck indoors with the curtains drawn, blocking out the sun and the neighbours having fun in their gardens. We were sick! It just kept coming as one after another we were knocked out by a sickness bug.

We knew the sun was out there though and it made us feel even more miserable.

The kids went back to school on Tuesday, and then it was into the garden when they came home. Making the most of the sunshine.

I was still ill but I had to go to the GP. The surgery is only at the end of our street and I felt so poorly as I got into my wheelchair to go, wishing I didn’t have to. But, once I was outside and I breathed in the fresh air and soaked up some sunshine, it made me feel better, like a skin absorbed tonic.

Yesterday, Graham had to go to a friends funeral so I had to pick up the kids from school. I actually enjoyed the journey in my chair. It was a little cooler but still sunny and the trip turned out really good. We even stopped off for ice cream on the way home.

The sun is hidden behind some thick cloud at the moment, but I do hope it returns soon. We have some catching up to do.

How has your week been?

    What a difference it makes! Sorry that you were all too poorly to make the most of the long weekend but it sounds like you’re trying to make up for lost time now! Fingers crossed it’ll be back x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    I hope you are feeling better now. Sorry you were all poorly. It’s rotten being ill when the sun is shining. I am full of cold and I am so annoyed that it’s ruining our plans x

    Hi Anne, glad to read that you are on the mend. I always think the sun makes everything seem better and hopefully you’ll be seeing plenty more of it in the coming months. We’ve not had our first ice cream of the year yet, but I have a feeling it won’t be long.

    Have a good weekend.

    Such a small thing, but sunshine can make the world of difference. Sorry to hear you were all a little ill over the long weekend, but happy to hear you’re all feeling a bit better. Hopefully the sun makes more than a few rare appearances now that we’re well and truly in spring now. #WotW

    Such a shame you were all ill over the bank hol. Hopefully you’ve managed to get out in the sun this weekend and all feel much better.

    We had a brush with some terrible bug here 2 sundays ago. It’s so awful feeling badly when the weather is so nice! I’m glad to hear you are all feeling better and that you got some great time in the sun!

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.
