Diesel Corsa blowing blue smoke on start up

My Vauxhall Corsa 1.3 diesel has stated blowing blue smoke on start up. The exhaust usually clears after a few minutes, under acceleration, and the car drive fine. I've also had the injectors checked, and they're fine, but I'm worried this be the start of something else. Any ideas?

Solid and decently equipped. Reasonable handling and some frugal engines.
