A note from Clare. . .

Hello to my lovely readers!

It has been some time since I posted so I thought it’s time I give you an update!

Firstly, a heartfelt thank you to those who have been commenting on past posts – it’s always so nice to see that even while I’m away you can still enjoy the archives! I’m also incredibly thrilled to have a steady number of “Likes” on our Facebook Page!
Thank you!

In keeping up with my New Year’s Resolutions I have decided to once again, take up part-time study.  As you may already know, I work full-time as a Legal Receptionist but in the evenings and weekends most of my time is taken up in studying!   Yes – what fun!  I have commenced a Degree in Communications which I hope will take my love of writing to a new level.

However, as you may have noticed in the past few months this means my love of blogging is somewhat stalled as much of the time I previously spent blogging is now spent with my head in a book or reading some literature journal.

I miss blogging very much and will purpose to keep the blog alive when time permits!

Much love,

Happy New Year!

As we turn the page and enter a new chapter for Grace & Poise, in 2009, our readers can expect a few new additions!  We hope to bring a few new features to the blog, and also broaden the focus of Grace & Poise.  Over the past two years our main focus has been on the guidelines of etiquette and deportment, discussing what they are and the details thereof. So the new features we hope to include are personal Style File of the author, (details coming), I also expect to be hosting a Formal Dinner in 2009 which I am looking forward to documenting with details and photographs.

I wish to thank all my readers for their lovely comments, emails and encouragement to keep this blog going.  Without you this blog would not be possible! Blogging is not my full-time occupation (how I wish it was!) however, the tiny amounts of time I do have to spend researching and writing articles is certainly well worth it!  – Thank you!

To each one of my readers, I extend a warm “Happy New Year” to you all.  I hope this year brings much happiness and joy to your life.

Best Wishes,
Clare Duncan
