The second half of this week has been particularly difficult, so I am incredibly grateful that is now the weekend. The first half of the week went by quite slowly, and it was the same old, same old. On Thursday, I had a routine antenatal appointment, but that is where things went a bit off course. In short, momentarily, it seemed like there might be a big problem with bump, and I was booked in for some emergency consultations and scans. Thankfully, everything is fine, but in that short window of time, it looked like we might have to deal with a very scary situation. From now on, my main focus has to be growing and nurturing the life growing inside me, and take a step back from other areas.

Money-wise, May seems to be going a bit astray in terms of spending; we are definitely spending more than usual and I’m not totally sure why. I think that June will have to be another month of really keep everything under wraps. I know for certain that I’m not going to meet my NSD target for May, due to little spends adding up over the month.


5 things I’ve enjoyed/been grateful for this week:

1) The fact that we live in a country where you get free healthcare; I was so grateful for the NHS on Thursday.

2) Getting to see our bump on the screen again and to see them moving around was pretty special.

3) I seem to have a mild obsession with dates this week; so sweet yet healthy!

4) A bacon sandwich and a cuppa on Saturday morning; there’s no better start to the weekend.

5) We’ve started to watch The Vikings tv series and it seems good so far; looking forward to seeing what happens next.


5 blog posts I’ve enjoyed this week:

1) My April 2015 Monthly Income Report by Pat Flynn. Another mind blowing month from Pat; this guy really knows how to earn a living online!

2) The Easiest Way I Made Money This Year by The Savings Novice. A simple trick but definitely important.

3) The Greatest Wisdom From Roald Dahl Books by The Stylist. Lots of fantastic messages in children’s books.

4) A Year Isn’t A Year by Dividend Mantra. A post that made me reflect on what I really want from my early adult years.

5) France to force big supermarkets to give unsold food to charities by The Guardian. Finally, something that should be happening everywhere.
