Right ! Prepared to be deluged. I am sorting old family slides and it's a lot of hard work but fun too when you find ones like this. This one is of my mother at the local butcher shop in Edinburgh in the 60s.

Now this is what I call a proper shop. The butcher has really sorted his wares hasn't he ? And displayed it so that customers can see at a glance what he's got. Bless him. Woolies is just not a patch on this is it?

And isn't my father clever for taking this photo too? It really captures the essence of the time don't you think? What is your favourite shopping experience? Have you taken a photo like this?

Three weeks left of long service leave so lots of sorting still to do. Will I finish A.S. Byatt's The Children's Book? Will I read Wolf Hall as well? Will I go blind?

I have started a family history course on-line through Pharos Tutors. It's great! I'm learning so much and it's only week one.

Wonderful snap! Is The Childrens Book good? I heard an interview on the Book Show her A.S and it sounded fascinating.... just I am not too good with heavy books these days... the eyes tend to shut faster if the brain has to work harder!

3 weeks to go, aaaarrgh! Still it will be Christmas soon.
