mini me + poo

It will be interesting to see how long it lasts

If, like me, you use oregano a lot while cooking, you may like to know that Aldi have 100g bags for 90-something pence each.

I bought a few...

They also have basil and a couple of other lesser herbs :-)

It was rather more expensive, but the one that I would love to have again was the sun-dried stalks of oregano from Crete that Tesco had at one point.

That takes me back.. and back.. and back..

Some years ago, L and I were going to somewhere in North London (Trish's birthday or similar). Because of the late finish, we went in the car.

Unfortunately, somewhere on the approach to Tower Bridge, we missed a turning, had to use a different bridge, and ended up having to go on a huge detour through the City: there was no way to get back to the original route.

I was reminded of this today. Going to Leicester (actually the venue for BiCon 2011 - what's the betting that some of the faults are still there?) was going well up to the point where I took the wrong lane in a city centre junction. Argh, miles of detour, not helped by the way that one critical east-west road is closed for roadworks.
