Things that aren't oh so quiet:
Daphne at 4.30 in the morning.
The sound of my current cough.
The cat deciding to join in as soon as it hears ANY KIND OF NOISE during the night.
Things that are oh so quiet:
Yes, hello hello out there. I am sorry I have been neglecting you. The truth is, I've been working on something else, something a bit secret at the moment but that I hope to be able to reveal to you shortly (and no, it's nothing to do with the novel, aren't you relieved, FINALLY SHE'S STOPPED BANGING ON ABOUT THE NOVEL - although I am still working on that too - HA). But yes, new Secret Project (how annoying and wanky am I, you are welcome to hate me) has been taking up all my naptimes (Daph's, not mine, although how I wish I could work while napping myself) and Life by Lotte has been left trailing in its wake.
Having said that, it feels like a bit of a natural time to wind down this blog anyway, actually. As I said in my last baby update, I don't particularly want to chronicle Daph's monthly developments forever more, especially not once she's old enough to work out that I'm sharing all her personal info with a load of (very lovely, admittedly) strangers online. I'll definitely be back for her 18 month baby update, but after that I think I'll put LBL into a mini hibernation while I try to get the other project off the ground.
So yes, back soon, I promise, with more of my ramblings, but in a different guise. Hopefully you'll enjoy it just as much as this one. That's the plan anyway.
Laters alligators and may all your nights' sleeps be restful and undisturbed, and may your mornings not start at 4.45am with a poo, as mine did today. Daphne's poo, not mine, I hasten to add...
