My Word of the Week

This week it’s Pancakes!

a photo of a selection of pancakes with lots of different topping choices

This week started with a flat tyre. Just as Graham was about to take the kids to school he found the tyre as flat as a pancake! The girls had to quickly walk to school, but the Little Man’s school is a little too far away.

Graham used the machine in the boot to inflate the tyre and it came with some solution to fix punctures. It seemed to work, but after he took the Little Man to school the tyre was flat again. So, we had to call them out to put on a new tyre. We also need the other front tyre replaced so Graham is going to take the car to the garage today to get it done.

Tuesday, in case you hadn’t noticed, was pancake day. It was also dental hospital day for me. My regular dentist decided that I needed specialist help. I had worked myself up about the appointment, only to find that they were not actually going to do anything on the day, apart from an xray! So we were home in time for pancakes. Which I made at 6pm and 9pm!

We all like our pancakes different so I make sure I have plenty of toppings. I really like lemon and sugar on mine, the Little Man and Boo like Nutella, Star likes Strawberries and cream, No1 Son likes banana and cream, Eldest Daughter Likes Nutella, strawberries and cream and Graham likes banana and chocolate sauce. How do you like yours?

Wednesday I was at the hospital for my infusions, I missed last months so it felt a long time coming. The ward was busy as usual, but I always stick in my earbuds and listen to a story while I’m waiting. I’m currently listening to Safe With Me by K.L. Slater.

Thursday was World Book Day and the Little Man’s school had a bedtimes story day so they went to school in their pj’s. Boo’s school were doing Harry Potter or The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. So Boo chose the White Witch. She put together her own costume and made a crown and staff with just a little help from me.

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

    Oh I’m so sorry you had to go through that anxiety for nothing! I have the same build up before appointments and it always knocks me for the day. At least you were able to enjoy your pancakes when you got home, that’s a very sweet silver lining! 🙂 #WotW

      It is indeed, I’m sure if the tooth had come out I wouldn’t have been eating anything! Thanks for joining in x

    Strawberries and cream was the favourite pancake topping here this year although I usually prefer savoury pancakes. Glad you managed to get your infusion this month and hope you feel better for it. I love Boo’s White Witch outfit. Thanks for hosting #WotW

      I’m not keen on savoury pancakes, much nicer sweet I think. Although my eldest daughter was talking about doing smoked salmon and cream cheese pancakes and I thought that sounded nice enough to try at least. Thanks for joining in x

    I love Boo’s costume, I’ve noticed other school going with a theme this year. We enjoyed pancakes this week too but we are a simple bunch sticking with lemon, sugar and syrup. Glad to hear your dental appointment wasn’t as bad as expected, I work myself up about these things too I think it’s the not knowing exactly what will happen on the day. Have a lovely weekend x

    • March 8, 2019 / 11:01 am

      Only problem with the dentist is that I’ll have to go back one day! Thankfully the tooth isn’t hurting, so I’m hoping that means it’s totally dead and won’t be a problem coming out.
      I hope you have a lovely weekend too x

    Boo for flat tyres and needing new ones. We had 2 new ones last week and the cost was eye watering!
    Hooray for pancakes. Your topping selection sounds delicious. We tend to stick to sugar, lemon or syrup with ours. #wotw

      Luckily our car is a lease car on motability, so we don’t have to pay for tyres or repairs. It would have left us broke if we had! Yay for sugar and lemon pancakes, I could eat them every day!

    That sounds very annoying about the flat tyre. I hope they are all fixed now.
    That is a lot of pancake toppings. My two has some with golden syrup and lemon, some with chocolate sauce and some with strawberry jam. I just had lemon and sugar.
    I love the idea of going to school in your pj’s. Boo’s costume is fab x

    Boo looks amazing. Absolutely no doubt who she went out, even before I read the description. She did a great job. Our first year not dressing up, which I missed. I’ve always loved making costumes. Sorry to hear the car had problems. I can really empathize with that one. Thank goodness for pancake day and all the toppings. We like lemon and sugar or maple syrup.

    • March 10, 2019 / 8:22 am

      We tried maple syrup but were not keen on it. Thanks for the kind comments on Boo’s costume. She was really pleased with herself putting it all together.

    I do love pancakes, and the boys just love pancake day. On no the car tyre sounds like a nightmare. Well done Boo on the costume she is so creative already. xx

    • March 10, 2019 / 8:17 am

      I think Boo certainly does have the creative gene xx

    Hate getting myself worked up just to be disappointed as means you have to go back again and get worked up another time.
    That is a lot of toppings for pancakes. I make mine with raisins and golden syrup in and don’t add a topping.

    • March 10, 2019 / 8:16 am

      I’m with you on getting worked up over nothing, I’m just hoping that by the time I go back the tooth will be just about ready to drop out by itself! I’ve never put raisins on a pancake although I love golden syrup.

  9. March 10, 2019 / 9:34 am

    I love Boo’s costume! it’s nice to see something different. My pancakes did not turn out too well.. the ones I made foe Hubby and the kids did, just not mine! ah well LOL!

    • March 10, 2019 / 9:39 am

      Oh, I’m used to pancakes not working out well. I bought a new pan this year and every single one was perfect. I’m tempted to hide the pan and only use it for pancakes 🙂

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.
