    Happy Friday everyone!

    Day 6 for me, and it's been such a busy day I've not even thought about my lunch. I made some home made chicken soup with the carcass of Sunday's chicken, I'm hoping it will taste alright, I'll be tucking in later.

    Have a good weekend everyone x

    Hi everyone, happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend.

    Day 7 for me - crackers and cheese with fruit for afters.

    Wishus - bacon butty on home made bread sounds delicious, hope it's got brown sauce on it too!

    Twiggy86 - that's dedication, and I bet it was nicer than any shop bought sandwich.

    Hey Happy Monday - I did think about adding some BBQ sauce, but went with healthy whole tomato instead.


    Today, I have lentil dahl and rice and a yoghurt for lunch, but I have to go travelling later so the bacon is on different homemade bread (more aerated, not so fluffy) with a bit of soft cheese and cucumber, and I'll eat that on the train.
