Sunrise Wholefoods

“Before you take your coat off, just nip across to the health food shop to get some eggs will you?” asked Maggie as Meg pushed her way past me into the house, dropping her schoolbag in my path and kicking her wellies off. I put my gloves back on and strode off down the road.

As I reached the till, eggs in hand, a rather nice unbleached cotton bag was placed in front of me. “For you,” I was told.

Sunrise Wholefoods- the finest health food shop in South West ScotlandI looked up quizzically. Was this part of a Christmas promotion? I didn’t really need a bag for only one box of eggs.

“My computer’s been offline for some time,” she continued. “I finally got it working again and did a Google search on the shop…”

Sunrise Wholefoods

It appears that my blog entry, Carrier Bag Etiquette, is on the second page.

*Cough*

It’s been quite a while since I last blushed.

I’ve suspected for some time that blogging under my own identity has the potential for embarrassing encounters.

Did I mention what wonderful people they are in Sunrise Wholefoods? Great selection of products, personal service and infinitely better value than Tesco.

Nice bags too.

Very Funny! Soon you’ll have people asking for your autograph. Hey look over there, “it’s the bag guy”:)

Maybe you should start writing about Castle Douglas businesses on your blog to see how much free stuff you can get.

Ooops. That's funny. Fear of discovery is a major reason why I don't blog under my name.

Quinn :)

BStrong - now there's an idea!

Sassy Sundry - welcome to my ramblings and thank you for taking the time to comment :)

I toyed with the idea of creating a false identity, but in the end I figured it was too much like hard work. If you're going to write about your life, sooner or later you going to give away so many clues about who you are, your family set up, where you live and work etc that the anonymity becomes more or less pointless.

Maybe it's easier because I'm self employed though. I admit it would be harder if I was commenting about work colleagues

I blog anonymously about colleagues all the time. It's the only thing stopping me from killing them.

Foot Eater - sounds like you're in the wrong job

Haha, thanks for putting a smile on my face on this rainy, dark day :)
Sounds like you're becoming quite a celeb ;) God knows where your influence might lead Scotland one day?
"It all started with a grocery bag, but today Mr Ayers is one of Scotland's most influential and powerful decisionmakers..."
The introduction to a feature on you in the Financial Times...?
I'm thinking big today.

Hello Bearded One,

I have a question for you: what is the best thing to come out of a box of cheap wine?

Answer: The courage to saw out your spine.

Your friend,
International Chirp Chirp

Kim Ayres said...

Eva - do you get celeb status for eating humble pie?

International Chirp Chirp - either I'm being slow or you're being obscure, either way you'll have to be a bit clearer as I'm not sure whether you're complimenting or insulting me.

This totally reminds me of your Anonymous Blog post from last year.

It was then that you first expressed remorse over your decision to forgo anonymity. If you could do it all over again, would you create a fake name and claim to be a ninja?

Kim Ayres said...

Probably not a ninja... but a robot has potential, for sure

Hahahaha! It's funny how things come full circle, isn't it?

True, true...
