Tweeting in the gaps

I have been feeling bad that I haven't been posting enough on lj, that I am forgetting what has been going on since Markus arrived. But then I realised that my (fairly) regular tweets will fill in the gaps of everyday minutae! Will try and tweet each day then do a monthly summary like this.
