Why I’ll be MIA for the rest of 2017

Some of you already know that I will soon be having our second child. The rest of you: surprise!

While this is incredibly lovely and exciting, I’m now suffering the nastier effects of being in the last stages of pregnancy. Chief among these is carpal tunnel. My hands going numb while also being rather painful makes it hard to type (and sleep, but let’s not worry about that), so I’ll be stepping away from blogging and Twitter for a bit to give my poor swollen fingers a rest.

And obviously once the baby arrives I’ll be falling off the planet for a couple of months, but I will do my best to put a short update here later in November (levels of craziness permitting) probably featuring cake.

All that said, having to be awake in the middle of the night could well mean I get to read more of your blogs than usual. Silver linings! πŸ™‚

Take care and Happy Halloween, Bonfire Night, Thanksgiving and a good festive season to all!

    • Thank you very much!
      I’m certainly being optimistic about getting back to blogging in January, but have to review a couple of books I got from Netgalley which are published in January, so will at the very least have to post about those… (she says, confidently!). Best laid plans… xx

  1. Congratulations Claire! Look after yourself and your little one, we’ll all still be here when life calms down again. The second tiny person is so much easier than the first but I bet you’ve been told this countless times so far. Enjoy your time away ❀
