Where are we going from here?

Things don't stay the same for long - and thank heavens for that, or we'd all find ourselves climbing the walls with boredom! And that's true of this blog too. With my baby due in three weeks, and chaos bound to ensue, I thought now was a good time to talk about what you can expect from me/the blog in the immediate future.

I have no intention of vanishing off the face of the blogosphere! Just to get that out of the way first. I've never done the baby thing before so I have no idea what to really expect, but my plan, right now, is to take maybe four weeks off blogging once the baby's born.  (After I've bored everyone with oodles of super-cute baby photos, obviously.)

After that, for a couple of months, I hope to spend a day on here every now and then, scheduling posts and generally catching up on things.

I still plan to visit my favourite blogs and I will always return comments so those things won't change.

Wow. Actually putting all this into a post makes it so official. Like these changes are really real. Can this be? Am I really going to have offspring? Am I never going to have a lie-in on a Saturday again? Ack.

PS. In other news, rather excitingly, I got a mention on the Bookseller and various other blogs this week! Random House Children's Books (UK) sent out a press release about some of their recent acquisitions and THE LOST GIRL features alongside three other debuts - all of which sound amazing!


  1. This must be such an exciting time for you!!! :o)

  2. Very! But also stressful. I'm so impatient, I just want things to HAPPEN! :-)

  3. I hope you have a smooth delivery, and congrats on the mention. Awesome!

  4. Things are really getting exciting over here - congratulations!! :) And how could we ever get bored of cute baby photos? I mean, really. :)

  5. Your life is about to change. (And I can only speculate as we have no kids.) You can't stay away too long though - you'll have a book out soon!

  6. No, you will not sleep in. Again.

    Okay, at least for about 15 years. Maybe.

    Good luck! I hope everything goes well.

  7. Congratulations...and what Tasha said...say goodbye to sleep and hello to coffee. :)

  8. That's great news, both about the baby and about your book! Congratulations!

  9. Congratulations! :)

    And pictures are never boring.

  10. Three weeks? That's flown! Hope baby arrives on my birthday (6th December)!
    We want lots of pictures and maybe a sneak preview of the nursery. xxxx

  11. What I can't believe is that you're due in three weeks and we still haven't seen any belly pics! Sheesh!

    Congrats on the mention - that's fantastic! And I can't wait to see all the cute baby pics.
