Very Early Signs of Pregnancy

Compared to first time around, I fell pregnant fairly quickly with baby number 2. And to be honest, if it wasn’t for me being so in tune with my body I may not have known I was pregnant as early as I did. All of those very early signs of pregnancy were there… Read more

Girl Off Grid…

Ok, ok. So not exactly ‘off grid’ as defined by the Oxford English but these past few months I’ve blogged less and less. Until last month… when I didn’t publish a blog post at all.

I haven’t fallen out with blogging or social media in any way. I still get instagram related thumb cramp like the best of them. I’ve just been taking some time back for me and chilling out. Since falling pregnant this time around I can totally appreciate the ‘constantly exhausted pigeon’ meme doing the rounds on Facebook. Read more

Paint, Glitter and Quality Time: My Captured Moment #toddlerapprovedTuesday

WARNING –  **Daddy – This post contains spoilers**

We’ve had a really busy couple of weeks. We’ve been to Geronimo, on holiday, had a car breakdown and bought a new car (new to us, not new new) and numerous play dates.

This week I got to have an extra day off work with my Little Miss, so I decided that we should stay home and have some quality time together… We decided to make some Father’s Day cards. One for Daddy, and one for each of her Granddads (she has three – lucky girl!) Read more

Goals For June

I know I say this every single month – but seriously dude, where did that month go??

I feel like there are not enough hours in the day at the best of times but May was a particularly busy month here on Vista Street… and June is set to be even busier.

December: Five Under 5

Do you remember Julia?

She was my blogger advent door number 8…

Julia has been writing her Five Under 5 posts monthly since September. I’ve loved reading them and have even picked up a few of the items that Julia has liked… and Little Miss Vista just adores the Paperchase ‘Bambi’ we got after seeing it in November’s post… even if the one we picked up happens to be a drunk and refuses to stand up!

Her posts were so popular and she enjoyed researching and writing them SO much, that Julia has turned this recurrent blog post into a Linky!

Sadly, I’m too late with my post this month to link up – but I love the posts SO much, I thought I’d join in anyway.

A lot of the frivolous items that my family and I pick up tend to be under £5 because we’re on a bit of a budget. Not as tight as it used to be but we’ve learned to rein in the expenses. Some of our luxuries are often worth more than a fiver but we just get them from the ‘right’ places.
