    Morning all, hope everyone's okay - it's grey and miserable in the Midlands today.

    I've got left over fish pie and veg for lunch today - managed to save some from last nights tea!

    I bought a couple of boxes of cuppa soup yesterday to take into work. Just as a backup plan if I forget to prepare a lunch.
