The beginning of the new year

The beginning of a new period

Blood stains the gusset

Watching fireworks and wondering what it will bring

perched on a hill in the howling wind

Striding along the street we chatter loudly about new years resolutions

A tired tradition they will recommend new ways to keep

Be kinder or just be nice Orla

Orange cat curled on a white bed

Walking up the hill out under blue skies

That man has the loudest slippers on earth and a camel dressing gown

Turning to Catfood and fizzy drinks

Retracing steps in a different direction

To the house

The home

The new year

And Thai food.
