    Ham salad sandwiches with a handfull of almonds, some fruit and a penguin. Didnt resort to fancy coffee as relatively not stressed. Have stock piled in draw ready for a BAD day.

  • Hi Bookaholic,

    Love your username :D

    You've been added to the list on Page 1.

    Thanks! Books are a bit of a habit for me! If only I could read the ones I’ve got before I buy new ones I’d have some kind of savings!

    Day 2


    well due to the weather forecast I have decided to work from home today - so will be eating my prepared tikka leftovers from last night
  • Morning,

    Tuna mayonnaise baguette and mini breadsticks with philly cheese for lunch today.

    I'm aiming that only on Friday's do I treat myself to lunch.

    Day 2 & I have got some curried Veg soup which literally consists of some dodgy looking veg that was at the bottom of the fridge & some chilli flakes.
    Dwy galon, un dyhead,
    Dwy dafod ond un iaith,
    Dwy raff yn cydio’n ddolen,
    Dau enaid ond un taith.

    Hello, can I join please?


    Lunch spending is a huge one for me- I started using YNAB last year and it's been a big shock to see how much I'm spending on disappointing food for lunch.


    It'll take serious planning to get into the habit but I'm going to give it a try! At the moment I'm only focusing on taking in my main food item and I'll allow myself to buy the snacks/cans I'm used to, but eventually I want to cut those down too.


    I have 22 days in the office this month, and have 2 planned lunches out, which seems more than fair, so can you put me down for 20 days please?


    Yesterday I had panzanella salad with ham (bread gone stale and so rescued in the salad, and ham left over from Christmas :money:). I just had half a tub of soup I had in the freezer- I had intended the other half for tomorrow but it was horrible so I'll have to think of something else tonight!
