Yesterday lunchtime I went to get my hair cut at Ed's Barbers. This is not, I'll readily grant, a terribly exciting event, but it is where I've taken my five year old to be sheared since he was knee high and I just wanted to record the fact that he has christened it in a charming, malapropistic, but deeply logical way as "Heads".

After that I popped in the Lebanese Gourmet Express, next door but one, for a shawarma and found that they were handing out free samples of little ground lamb, chilli and pine nut pastry parcels that I was told were called sambousik. I'd never heard of them, never mind tasted one before. If you get the chance you should try some too. Once again, scarcely earth shattering but worth recording somehow.
