My Word of the Week

My Word of the Week this week is teeth.

Last weekend I had a dream that my teeth were falling out. It was horrible, I could feel my mouth full of broken teeth and I was trying to spit out all the debris. 

I had a feeling there was a meaning behind this dream so I checked it out. When it comes to interpreting dreams it’s best to take what you read and see how it actually applies to you. It also helps to read the positive as well as the negative. I think the reason I looked it up is because my Mum always said that if you dreamed of your teeth falling out it meant there was going to be a death! I can relate to some of the things in the interpretation and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t mean that someone is about to meet their end.

Do you like to interpret your dreams?

I had a visit to the dentist this week. I really don’t mind going to the dentist but I do wish there was an easier one to access nearby. The one I go to has a high step at the entrance. You can ask for a ramp, but there is no room for a wheelchair once inside anyway. The surgery is upstairs but they see me in the hygienist clinic which is downstairs. 

I don’t go in my wheelchair so I have to walk, but I can’t park outside, the nearest road is about 5 metres away. I know that doesn’t sound far to you, but it’s a long way for me to walk. Probably my limit, especially outside. 

Just a few short years ago I used to zip around this shopping centre on a regular basis. How life changes. (This can also be related to my earlier teeth dream.)

Back to the teeth. As I said, I’m not worried about the dentist, even the needles, noise and smell don’t bother me. My dentist has recently left the practice so I was introduced to the new lady who seems really nice.  The check-up went well, no problems this time. That’s me done for six months.

    Teeth were definitely on your mind, especially with a new dentist. Nice to get it out of the way. Hopefully you won’t have that dream again. At least for a while.

    Thanks for hosting. Hope you have a good weekend.

    Oh I’ve heard of others having that dream before but thankfully it’s not one I’ve had myself. It doesn’t sound nice at all! It’s maybe a good thing you had your dentist appointment just after, maybe it will help to keep that dream away knowing that all your teeth are nice and healthy! #WotW

    I always have the strangest dreams. I went shopping to Asda with Rick off The Walking Dead the other night in my dream. lol
    Ugh! It sounds such a nightmare for you to get into the dentists. I’m glad the check up went well x

      haha, I had to stop watching The Walking Dead ages ago, it was always affecting my dreams. I’m not a survivor, if there was an apocalypse of any kind I’d want to be the first to go! Saying that, I do remember a few dreams about Daryl that were not too bad…and definitely not shopping in Asda *blush*

    That doesn’t sound like a very nice dream to have. I often feel there is a meaning in the dreams I have of Jessica now but otherwise don’t try to interpret them. I’m glad the dentist appointment went well but it’s a shame it’s not more easily accessible. Thanks for hosting #WotW

    I have had that dream a few times and its horrible, my mum used to have a dream book and that said it was a fear of getting old. I hate the dentist, its the noise of the drill that does me, glad the appointment went well it must be so hard when places are not accessible though xx

      I think I’ve gone past the fear of getting old, lol. I do have a lot of fears though x

    I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who has this teeth dream. In fact I had that same dream probably around the same time as you did. In my case I think it was anxiety over not being able to find my regular dental floss and the new one i bought keeps snagging on my teeth and fillings so I feared that it is going to end up causing the fillings to come out. Thankfully I have now found the good floss online so my fears can be put aside for a bit longer. But it is a dream I have had frequently over the years. I’ve always taken it as a warning to be wise about any situation I’m facing at the time. I love looking at the meaning of dreams! #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.
