Haven't written this blog for over a year now but I had to tell you of a chance meeting the other day with a Scottish lady who lives in Perth, Western Australia, back home for a time just now. We started chatting as we were coming down the stairs from the library. She and her friend were looking at information boards on the library stairs about William Chambers who donated the building to the town in the 19th century so I told them that my great grandfather had worked for William in Edinburgh, which started our conversation. Then the lady told me that back in Australia she had read an interesting blog about Peebles, with photos and bits of history in it. Of course I asked if she remembered its name or who wrote it and suggested Peebles for Pleasure by Evee. Yes, that was the one, she reckoned! "Well, that's me!" I told her! Small world, eh?
Well obviously I haven't found anyone to take over the blog, and really just do not have the time to continue it myself, so if there are any takers out there you are very welcome to get in touch and offer your services!!!
