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 dog.

They also had a band there playing festive music which was nice! Its the best santa's grotto ive ever been to and well worth its money!

Where have you been to visit santa this year?

I filmed the whole experience which will be up on my YouTube channel 'Lydia Anne Vlogs' tomorrow. Lydia Anne Vlogs Channel - go subscribe here.

My Labour & Delivery Story - Following A Previous Shoulder Dystocia

So i recently did a youtube video covering this which you can find here Watch it here but i wanted to do a blog post as well as i can go into a bit more detail and take my time not to forget anything!

So because of my first daughters shoulder dystocia my specialist decided the best way for me to have my second child was to be induced at 38 weeks so the baby isnt as big and shouldnt get stuck, well my first was born at 40 + 5 weeks weighing 7lb 10oz and this second baby was born at 38 + 3 weighing 7lb 11oz so im so glad we were induced and i didnt go past 30 weeks as i was told she would have been over 9lbs if i did!

I went in for my induction on Wednesday 7th March, the hospital was very very busy! I had a pessary inserted at 11am they can stay in between 24-30 hours max. Then the plan was after 24 hours if labour hadnt started to be taken up to delivery suite where they would pop my waters and start me on the hormone drip. I had a few period pains on the wednesday but not much was go…

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…
