My Word of the Week


It’s been another busy week here in the Sweet Household. The weekend we had family over to visit. It was lovely having them here and catching up, we had a great day.

Then Monday and Tuesday I was at the hospital for most of the day. I’m all done now until next year, but the staff on the ward are like family to me. I treated them with a Christmas card and big tin of chocolates to say thank you for all they’ve done for me.

I watched the last episode of Mrs Wilson on Tuesday evening and I’ll be sad to see it go, not only was it a good drama (and based on a true story) I loved the images of the 60s and 70s homes and people. They reminded me so much of my family members that are no longer here. 

I’ve also spent family time re-watching The Greatest Showman with Boo and the Little Man. Then whenever my older two are around we put ‘Impractical Jokers’ on. It’s so stupid you can’t help but laugh. Sal shh’s Everyone is one of my favourites.  Although, taken out of context it probably looks very strange.

As Christmas draws closer I’ll be sure to be having many more family moments over the coming weeks.

    I can imagine your house full of happy voices and laughter. It sounds like a good week. I might give Mrs Wilson a go when no one else is around to veto it! Here’s to more family moments.

    Sounds like you’ve been enjoying lots of lovely family moments. Glad you’re all done with the hospital until next year. I haven’t managed to watch any of Mrs Wilson yet but hubby’s been enjoying it. Thanks 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.
