Confronting my fears - my proud moment!

Hi guys,

So i wanted to share something with you that i achieved today and to some of you it may sound small but to me its a big deal! Since ive been pregnant ive been a very nervous person, ive lost a lot of confidence, and one thing i was scared about was going out on my own.

So today my Decarlo took my car to work and i soon realised we had nothing in for tea, so i walked to town, to most people it would take them about 15 mins so its not too far, but for a pregnant person that is quite a long way! So i took my partners rucksack and walked into town to get some shopping, i was so nervous leaving the flat but just over half way i felt so so good about myself and the fact i pushed myself out of my comfort zone! Once i was there i decided to pop into Superdrug to treat myself to something seeing as i did overcome a fear. So i brought myself some skincare bits and even received a free gift! (More in my youtube video, check it out link below)

After treating myself to some goodies i went and did my grocery shop and walked home. I feel amazing for getting some exercise and confronting one of my fears and i want to encourage others to do the same, go out and push yourself out of your comfort zone because you might actually enjoy it!

From now on im going to push myself more and do more things because life is too short! Something that seams so little to anyone else is such a big deal for me and its made me feel great! Now all ive got to do is decide what exactly im cooking for tea as i brought a variety of stuff haha.

Thanks for reading, speak soon!

Visiting Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries

Today we took Eloise to visit Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries in Breage, Cornwall. We took her last year when she was a lot


younger and it was great, but it was even better this year!

They had a little market on selling stuff from local businesses, like jewelry, bread, cheese, photos, crafts etc.

Then they had the santas grotto which is amazing, as your in the que they brought round chocolates, then there was a snow globe which you could stand behind and have a photo which looked amazing! There was also a enormous polar bear and fake snow and a talking owl and post box which is amazing for the kids.

Going there was free, and it only cost £5 to go and visit santa but the money goes to there chosen charities. When you go into the actual grotto there is a fantastic display of lights and status of animals, before you see father christmas so its a lovely experience. Then at the end you get to choose your own present from santa so theres stuff to suit all ages. This year Eloise chose a toy…

Lets talk - Mum guilt

So as im writing this im sat in bed winding down ready to go to sleep, and all i can think about is what an awful job ive done today as a mum, ive not played with her enough, ive let her eat too much junk food, ive been on my phone too much, i havnt taken her out today, ive been too busy cleaning and not paying her attention, the list is endless.

And im wondering is this normal? Does every mum feel like this? Well i ended up posting in a mum group and i realised i am not alone! Which is why i wanted to write this blog post so if you reading this are in the same situation and you find yourself in bed every night feeling guilty then dont worry because we all are. 

One thing im going to try and do to make myself feel better is structure a loose timetable for the day, just a simple plan of what we are doing etc. So things like, walk into town in the morning, have lunch then do some arts and crafts in the afternoon, followed by tea, bath time and bedtime. Then at least i can go to bed thinki…

Breastfeeding - My story

So Eloise is coming up to two years old soon, and i will be having baby number two in a few months which has recently got me thinking about breastfeeding again, and i soon realized i never shared my experience with anyone.

When Eloise was born i really wanted to breastfeed but i was open minded that if i struggled i would just go on to formula and not put a lot of pressure on myself to breastfeed her! Eloise was in neonatal for the first 24 hours after her birth and so they ga

ve her formula through a feeding tube that went in her nose to start with while i rested, but about 5 hours or so after her birth they said i could go in and try her on my breast if i wanted to. Previous to that i sat in my hospital bed trying my very hardest to express what colostrum i had so i could give her all the good stuff to go along with her formula to try and help her get her strength up after a traumatic birth.

I was so incredibly nervous as i had no idea what to do, i was very lucky and she pretty muc…
