New Year’s Day 2019

The work commences to clear away the smouldering embers of the revelry.

Special thanks to Stephanie Atkinson for these morning photographs to kick off this daily diary. The plan is to ‘sketchify’ every image in this diary, so that the eventual ‘blook of the blog’ will be that much more cost-effective to print, and also to incorporate a touch of anonymity and universality to the images

Tuesday the 1st of January, 2019 has dawned bright, blue and brilliant, and the whole year is ahead of us. There will be so many challenges, so many delights, some sorrow and pain doubtless, but we all hope that the good times will outweigh the bad.

All best wishes to the friendly readers of this daily diary, for the coming days, weeks, month and year ahead.
