|Shopping the Waitrose way

Waitrose goes to extraordinary lengths to convince us it is an altogether superior grocery.
The driver who delivered my online order this morning noticed an admission ticket lying around to 'Roman Fort': which Roman fort was that, he asked, so we told him about Binchester, and he told us about the year he spent working at Vindolanda (it's a generation since we were last at Vindolanda, time we went again) and his holiday trips to see the Roman remains in Syria ("before...") and Sicily.
Among the goodies on offer but which I did not buy: "Free Range Potato Omelette." Taking compassion in farming to new lengths.
