My Word of the Week


a box of tissues, a mug and glasses and the word 'achoo'

I would have so liked to have used the word Birthday this week. I love how some people can make their birthday’s last a whole week, but not me. Mine was over before it even began. Okay, I did get some lovely gifts and lots of cake, but I didn’t really do anything special (is having a take out special – not when we do so every week anyway.) The day passed just like any other really. 

Then…I caught a cold, stinking horrible head cold. Hot flushes, snotty nose, sneezes, coughs, sore throat, headache. YUK! It’s starting to get better now, but it’s not made for a good week. I had things to do this week and I’ve done nothing. All I’ve wanted to do is sleep.

That’s enough feeling sorry for myself. It’s only a cold, it’ll be gone soon and life can go on. Do excuse me for being a snotty misery guts this week.

    Oh no! I hope you feel better soon.
    I have been battling a cold this week. I seem to have shaken it off for now but my fella is still full of it. Ugh! I hate this time of year. x

    Happy belated birthday. I hope they all made a fuss of you. Horrible to have a cold, but sometimes it’s best to sleep yourself better, which sounds like you did. The jobs will wait. Hope next week is better. #wotw

    Oh no Anne I am so sorry you were ill over your birthday week, but happy birthday and a takeaway does count I am sure, I am a week celebrator I have to say. Its more about just celebrating life for me and making the family all make a fuss. Have a lovely week xx

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.
