    Well they are off to court on April 10th for a plea hearing.

    I don't need to attend but would love to know what they are being charged with - I haven't been told

    Is this the idiocy with the fare dodger and her partner?

    That's the one...

    I'm more curious as to what the actual charges are as it could be anything from Common Assault through to GBH depending on the mood of the crown prosecution officer

    They really should do a better job of keeping victims of crime informed, though

    Had the rest of the must-be-used-now pâté for lunch, on a toasted wholemeal roll

    I was going to have a steak bake, but unfortunately I remembered the pâté had to be eaten

    Thankfully Gregg's bakes have never been a temptation for me unlike doughnuts...

    I was quite pleased to find that having them in the freezer wasn't as much of a temptation as I'd expected it to be - though I think I need to pop in to Iceland to get some more chicken ones soon

    I don't think they do doughnuts in frozen form, and I doubt they'd work that way anyway, so I have to do the three-hundred-yard trek up past the traffic lights if I want those

    All the Icelands near me have closed down. Clearly the area is too posh to have Iceland but not to have Wilko, Aldi and Lidl.

    The Iceland by me was the culmination of a long history of refused planning permission for that site. It had been a filling station and second hand car sales place for years, but that was refused planning permission to expand its repair facilities into the residential street on the corner of which the plot stands, and faced with competition from two more petrol stations within a hundred yards it closed down around the end of the 1980s. Then there were various proposed usages. At one time in the early to mid 1990s there was a planning application for a McDonalds there, but permission for the drive-through component was refused because it would have entailed exiting onto the residential street, not to mention the potential for tailbacks on the main road.

    Finally the proposal for the Iceland store was made, and subject to various controls on when lorries can deliver (which fairly often results in lorry drivers having to sleep in their cabs round the back of it so they can offload and be away before rush hour) and a restriction on the size and illumination of the sign at the front of the car park, they made it through the planning process.

    The place always seems to be pretty busy so I don't imagine they've ever considered closing it.

    Also, the car park seems to be used regularly by some of the ladies who work in the massage parlour over the road; I don't know if there's any kind of formal arrangement for this between the two businesses, or if they get away with it by popping in for a bag of frozen chips at the end of their shift
