When We Begin The Beguine...

So. The very first post on the new blog.

This had better be good hadn't it?

What to say, what to say...

Happy New Year would probably be a good place to start. 

I started being 'grateful' on New Year's Day in 2012 - in another life really, as a novice blogger on Tumblr, not knowing much at all about the whole shebang, going through enormous changes in my own tiny little world.

And here I sit at the dawn of a new year. 2013.

Well, it's not actually dawn.

It's lunchtime.

Blame New Year's Eve.

And I am adamant that I will not be making any formal resolutions this year, because every time I have, I have either broken them or regretted them. I do intend to give out more than I receive. And to live in the spirit of the two points below.

Grateful - and ready to write about it.

2013 will rock like a rocky thing.

Let's get it on.

And be grateful for a new year, without any creases in it, or toast crumbs or gravy stains sitting on its lap.

A fresh, crisp 2013.

Take a big bite out of it people.

It sounds delicious.
