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
There is only one thing I love more than a pregnancy announcement… and that is lovely, warm, pink, squidgy, new baby cuddles.
And although Mr Vista and I would love nothing more than a little brother or sister for Little Miss Vista, we’re not 100% there yet for a few reasons. Money being the main big one: We would need a bigger house, a bigger car and it would mean that we’d be missing a whole years worth of wages from me when we’ve just recovered from maternity leave the first time around.

I haven’t joined in with Heledd’s My Captured Moment for a little while. Mainly because I’ve been busy with work and and trying to sort out my work/life balance… I will publish that meal plan that I’ve been working on for a while. I promise!

This January is the first one in a very long time that although we’re still on a budget we won’t have to panic about where next meal is coming from.
Last year – I had only just gone back to work after being off for twelve months on maternity leave, we’d just had Christmas on one wage and it was that horrible six week month. We had just enough money to pay our bills and keep our heads above water but there was no extra money in the budget to put petrol in the car or food in the fridge.
