Indoor Shopping

We have a small indoor shopping Mall in town here, and when I have a scooter from Shopmobility, it is a very handy place to shop. The floors are nice and smooth and it is easy to get around. Outside, while it is in the fresh air, and there are lots of bigger shops, the pavements can be treacherous, being the original old York stone slabs, and although there is a pedestrianised area, some the the kerbs can be tricky!

Boots is one of the big names in the Mall - it occurred to me as I was winding my way round the aisles that things have got much brighter all of a sudden. Bright, primary colours for shampoos and lotions - or have I been missing something all this time!

In the Indoor market (one of my favourite haunts) there is great greengocery stall. I love the look of everything piled up together.

There is also a cheese and cold meats, pies and other interesting things to eat. Mr. G, always buys some speciality cheese there every week. I don't know if clicking on the photo and using an enlargement gizmo would enable you to see all the varieties of cheese there are there.

Lastly, a cheesy photo! The cheese at the back left is Edam, the white cheese is Cheshire and the one on the right is Shropshire Blue, which I think is my all-time favourite!

My name is Diane and I am a Cheeseaholic!! What a great cheese stall. I can't stand it when people say they don't like cheese - its not just one flavour is it. Great photos and a good place to shop Gilly. xxxx

I could have lots of fun and spend lots of money at that shopping mall.

This is enough to get me running to the nearest store for cheese. My favorite is white cheddar from Vermont.

Whenever I am in a foreign country (which, admittedly, is not often) I love to wander around the grocery stores to see what is different.

and I love your cheese shop!
