Wednesday 23 July

Day is gradually improving in terms of weather. It started off overcast, but the sun is out and there are broad swathes of blue sky. No complaints about 16C/ 60F on the thermometer.

Yesterday, the new Tesco supermarket opened up the road. Somerfields closed on May 3rd and it took all this time to revamp the premises ahead of the opening. Yesterday, all islanders crammed through their doors to have a look. When I went shopping, it took me half an hour to get round the store. Mayhem. Today was much better.

Had a brief amble round town just now, and not much has changed.

    We had a New Tesco store open in a little village near by ~ we went today to have a look and it was very pleasant ~ has taken a lot of customers away from the small shops in the village though ~ don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing :o) ~ Ally x

    I've seen Tesco on the BBC America channel...very nice...huge store.
    Hope your having a great week...

  3. Been blazing hot here.  Yes I believe Somerfields has been taken over by the Co-op.

    it sounds a lot like you've moved back!:)

  5. That's funny everyone rushed to the new market.  I can imagine it was chaotic, I hope they didn't sell out and now have empty shelves.

  6. was the same here when they changed over, everyone runs in to see what is going on.......... makes you wonder what people done before the large supermarkets were around
