    I've been ever so good and packed a salad for my lunch BUT THERE IS A MARKET IN OUR VILLAGE TODAY. seriously, for the first time ever. I have to go ( I need to walk past it to get to the bank) I keep telling myself I can get us an after dinner treat, and my lunch is fine and tasty.

    Good afternoon,


    I have managed another 2 days of packed lunches at work (although technically lunch at home yesterday). The contents of my lunches have not been too exciting, just tinned soup, sandwiches, fruit and other snacks. I was drinking a lot of coke before, always popping out to the shops for a can but have not had one since Monday, I've been bringing a water bottle filled with orange squash with me to work instead. I had a bad migraine yesterday which I suspect was from the lack of coke!


    I am planning to include my weekends as days I will not eat out for lunch so we'll see how that goes.


    Enjoy your weekend.

    Hi all just woke up from post night shift beauty/recovery sleep. Went straight to bed after work after 2 sips of tea which DS1 lovingly prepared for me. So skipped breakfast and lunch (shift work is a very unhealthy lifestyle).

    Tut Tut! I bet shift patterns make it really difficult though, so i wont nag too much ;)

    LTW number 3- pasta a la carbonara leftovers brought to work and home-made hazelnut bar.

    Home made hazlenut bar? Could you share the recipe please, it sounds nice!
    Well aren't I a silly sausage! I *took* my lunch to work but.. well then the canteen was serving one of my favourites so...

    Doh. One chick pea and feta salad came home with me :( I did however enjoy the overnight oats I took with me and a brekkie bar which at least staved off the vending machine temptations!

    *hangs head in shame*

    No head hanging needed, we live and learn AND you are trying, which makes the difference. Just think of the £'s you will save ;)

    Same again today unfortunately. I went straight to bed after night shift number 2 sans breakfast and lunch (I needed bed more than food) but have just awaken now, STARVING I could eat for England. Will go downstairs in a bit to find something to eat.

    For LTW last night I had the last bit of the noodles and veg stir fry and half a punnet of yummy cherries (YS bargain haul last Tuesday).

    It won't be NSD today as I need to do buy some essentials like milk and bananas. Only a small spend hopefully.

    My LTW tonight (night shift #3) will be chicken salad wrap.

    Day 4 for me, and day 2 for dh. I had 4 slices of toast for lunch, 2 with pink-and-purple sprinkles (dds wanted to try but didn't like, and I just cannot throw away), 2 with honeyed goat's cheese (free after rebate).
    Dh had bread with peanutbutter, judging by the jar he left open on the kitchen table :undecided
