Welcome to my blog. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll stay and enjoy reading about where I've been and what I've been doing!

I don't mean this to be a replacement for personal emails, but it gives me the chance to put up photos and my scrapbook layouts, so I don't block up your in-boxes, or have to send the same photos and stories to everyone separately!
Thanks, and welcome, to the followers of my blog. I'm very honoured that you enjoy it. Drop me some comments from time to time! It's good to hear what you think about the posts. Come back again soon.

Thanks also to Mary of Mary's Mixes for doing all the work on the blog's heading. You are great, Mary!

Two great photo blogs for starters

Well, still no photos from the Co, or anywhere else just for the moment! I was all set to start blogging earlier today, when something led me to find the Photo a Day blogs where you can look up pretty much anywhere in the world and find bloggers who post photos of their little part of it. Of course being an Edinburgher originally, I looked up the Edinburgh blogs and found Dido and Bondbloke! I sat all afternoon and read and admired their postings, so much so that suddenly I realised it was dark again (about 4.30p.m.)! Well, it wasn't as if I was doing anything else, so I just kept on reading - and admiring! So if you are interested in my home city, take a look! I just have to add these two to my favourite blogs, see the left hand column!

OK, now for some pictures of the changes at work! The Co-op, Peebles! Aren't you just sooooooo excited? (Touch of the lowest form of wit there, yes?)

OK, here are the befores and afters, first the counter behind which I stand for a lot of my shift, checking out peoples's groceries through the till and these are two of my colleagues Moira and Joyce.

This was my view from the counter when I had a chance to look at it! Look at it now!

Looking from the counter, slightly to the right. The partition wall where the drinks chillers are, behind that red thing that actually held greetings cards in the LH photo was removed to reveal more of the steps that go down to the main shop. In this LH pic only a small section of the stairs was in use, beyond the wall unit full of crisps - chips to some of you - but now......... well, not quite now - this is on the way to being finished!

Here's the main shop as we were. Without that big partition we now look like this!

I didn't remember to take a photo of the before view back into the shop from near the back door, but this is what you see now, and the next pic is of Michelle as we tackled the weekly task of adding the supplement magazines etc., to the Sunday newspapers last week!
We'll have that joy to look forward to in the morning so as I have to be up at 6.00 and it's now just after midnight, I am off to get some kip!
Talk again soon!
