My Word of the Week

This week my word is delicate, because that’s how I’m feeling.

a wilting flower and the word delicate

At the time of writing this I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. I’ve tried to go back to sleep but I can’t. My mind won’t take the rest it needs and I have a poorly Little Man besides me. He is the reason for my tiredness having kept me awake half the night because he was sick. We will take it easy today and hopefully tomorrow we both won’t be feeling so delicate.

Also, we were in another car accident last Saturday, not as bad as the last but we still took a bump. I have much worse whiplash than before and can barely move my neck, while my shoulders feel sore and tender. Graham is feeling the same, so we are both feeling pretty delicate.

I had my treatment in hospital on Monday and although I had a massive migraine afterwards it did pass by the next day. There are after effects though, my head always feels fuzzy for a day or two and my arms are really sore this week after a few failed attempts at my cannula. So even more reasons to feel delicate.

The best thing to do when feeling delicate is to rest and recover and remember that it doesn’t last forever. Feeling sorry for yourself is often frowned upon, but when you feel like this your emotions take a bashing too. So, I’m going to treat myself delicately and hopefully I’ll be feeling strong again soon.

I hope your week has been better, do let me know.

    So sorry to hear that you had another car accident. Whiplash is horrible. I hope it eases soon. It does sound like it’s been a tough week. Treating yourself delicately is wise advice. I hope that the weekend brings some rest and recovery and that next week will be a better one. Thank you for hosting #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.
