My Word of the Week

The kids are still off school and we are trying to fill each day with a limited budget thanks to Christmas overspending. (One year I will remember to save some money for the sales!)

We love playing games as a family, board games or video games, it doesn’t really matter, everyone loves to join in. So that’s what we’ve been doing mostly this week.

My eldest daughter has been playing The Walking Dead (after the kids have gone to bed) and I’ve had far too many late nights intrigued to watch what happens next. Last night I watched the ending which was very sad. But at least I’ll be able to have an early night tonight.

New Years Eve we split up the games. The two eldest and the girl’s played Super Smash Bros on the Switch, While me, Graham and the Little Man played Bugs in the Kitchen. They are both actually very competitive games.

Boo had Think Words for Christmas and we’ve had loads of fun with her with that. Some rounds have been really easy and others frustratingly tricky. But we are a family of words and that’s why I bought Star a new game of Scrabble. (Our old one has a worn board and missing tiles.) We played double up, where three adults helped the kids play. It was way too competitive for a word game!

Maybe I should have chose the word ‘competitive’ but I think that sounds less fun than Games.

Now it’s your turn, what have you been up to this week?

    Playing games as a family is such a great activity isn’t it, we have a cupboard full of of our favourites. It sounds like everyone has enjoyed being competitive at your house this new year. You are brave watching the walking dead, I am terrified of zombies so can’t even watch the adverts for the show. Have a great weekend x #WotW

      Angela, one thing I learned from watching the Walking Dead (Both tv series and game) is that humans are way more scary than zombies or any other creatures. Nice to see you back, have a great weekend yourself x

    That sounds like fun! I got the kids a new board game for Christmas but we haven’t played it yet 😀 I’ve not watched The Walking Dead, maybe I should take a look 😀 Happy New Year and have a lovely weekend #WotW

      I will admit that I got bored of the Walking Dead series by about the 6th, it just depressed me. I’m definitely not a survivor, it’s way too difficult. The game is set like the comic books and the graphics are very different to normal games. It’s a story mode game though, so you don’t actually have to do much other than make decisions…but some of those decisions are really hard.

    It sounds like you have all been having a lot of fun with all the games.
    We’ve played a few here and have got quite competitive too. Oops.

    Word games are competitive! My husband refuses to play them with me anymore. We’ve had a few games on the go. Really is the week for it. I’m so cynical about the sales, that we keep clear of the shops. January sales doesn’t seem to mean the same thing anymore. I reckon playing games is a far more worthy activity. Hope you have a good week.

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.
