    Worrying won't stop bad stuff from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good.

    Brought lunch to work every day last week so that makes 10 days complete. 3 days of chicken curry, 2 days of leftover pasta with pesto and one day at home with cheese on toast.

    I'll be having a fish finger sandwich tomorrow (thank you for the idea!). I'm still not sure what I'll be having for the rest of the week.
