My Word of the Week


snowflake picture with the words, Back to Routine after a lazy couple of weeks

Ahh the lazy days of Christmas holidays are over and the kids back at school and we are all back into a routine.

The Little Man went back on Monday and was quite excited to get back to his routine. The girls had a couple more lazy days before they went back. Thankfully, we never really change much of our bedtime and getting up routines, even when on holiday. It means I never get a lie in, but it also means it’s less of a shock to the system having to get up again.

We do however change the routine of things we do in the day time and I will admit we have been really lazy. I kind of feel bad, but on the other hand, if there is one time of the year that calls for laziness, it has to be Christmas. It’s cold, the kid’s have new toys to play with, there is loads on the television to watch.

I promise that next time they have a school holiday I will do more with them. Even if it’s still cold.

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

    We had a bit of a shock getting up on Monday morning! We had been having lie ins and late nights over Christmas. lol

    Being lazy is exactly what the Christmas holidays were made for, a chance to recharge your batteries before the new year starts so I don’t blame you. We got a little out of routine with bedtimes and getting up in the mornings so the kids have been a bit tired this first week back at school. It sounds like you’ve gotten into the swing of things really easily which is great. Have a lovely weekend x #wotw

    Some of my best memories of Christmas are sitting in the front room playing with toys, watching films and eating food. I don’t think it matters what you do over Christmas, it’s the fact that you’re spending it together that matters! I’ll take my badge for most cliche comment now thank you, haha! Very excited to be back into a routine myself now and back to blogging 🙂 #WotW

    We all need a spell of lazy time. All the better to set us up for the new term. We were partly back to routine this week. Next week should be more like it. Hope you have a good weekend.

    It’s so good to be back to your usual routine. I love lazy days sometimes, but after Christmas and new year’s I too was longing to get back to my normal routine.

    It’s quite nice to have a lazy school holiday though and Christmas is a good one for that. Glad you are all settled back into a routine. Happy new year to you all and thank you for hosting #WotW

    I think this is the perfect time fo year for lazy days, we have been pretty chilled over here too. Life is so busy and we should always think about making time for nothing otherwise everyone expects to be entertained all the time x

    I was looking forward to getting back to our routine too. We stick to the same bedtimes too but our sleep is always disturbed. In fact our little lady is sleeping longer with the return to school #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.
