My Word of the Week

The girls went back to school this week but I still have the Little Man at home until Monday. He will be going back to a brand new school building. He will also be starting swimming lessons with the school, twice a week for the next four weeks. I’m really pleased he will be learning to swim. I’ve never really had the chance to take him Swimming. So that’s two new experiences for the Little Man.

I have started a new book this week, I’m now reading The Hoarder, by Jess Kidd. I’m a few chapters in and it seems a bit eerie. I’ve just finished Three Things About Elsie, by Joanna Cannon.

I’m also on the finishing touches of my latest crochet project, a beautiful spring blanket, so I’m looking for something new. I did buy the wool for a summer shawl but now I can’t find the pattern, so frustrating.

So, now it’s over to you. What word or phrase sums up your week?

    Hope Little Man enjoys his swimming lessons. I keep meaning to book some for Sophie. The spring blanket sounds like a lovely project. How frustrating that you can’t find the pattern for the shawl though, hope it turns up. Thanks for hosting #WotW

    A summer shawl is next on my list. I have everything ready, once I’ve finished my current knit. I suspect you’ll have yours done faster than mine, even though you need to find the pattern first! Hope Little Man enjoys his swimming lessons. It’s great that schools take them. I’ve started a new book and am enjoying it for once. Always on the look out for recommendations, so taking note of your two books. Thank you for hosting. Hope you have a good weekend.

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.
