Salt and vinegar Hoola Hoops. I didn't know such a thing existed, I thought they only did plain- can't believe I have been missing out on these all these years !
Cheese and onion and BBQ beef available too !

Drive-by sandwiching victim today.

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Is that like ram-raiding, only instead of loading what they can into the vehicle, the perps then produce a tray of assorted sandwiches and packets of crisps? :demon:
This is not The Greatest Sig Line in the World, no.
This is just a tribute.

It's the Mrs. braking to a halt from 30 per, right outside the shop door as I'm saying TTFN to a mate, whilst proffering a sandwich out of the driver's window, stopping for the briefest moment before accelerating away.

Choreography that would have impressed Arlene Phillips...

I saw my first Christams turkey and cranbery sandwich in Boots this week.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Don't DIE of boredom!

BTDT got a clean result...

... but nearly died of boredom.

I don't usually eat Rich Tea biscuits...

TBH I found the days of low-residue blandness worse than the Movi-Prep or the colonoscopy...
..possibly because the duration of the latter two was shorter.

Samosas with chickpea curry and salad from the high street stall in Wolverhampton - £3.60 well spent.

It's fantastic isn't - love that place. 

Yesterday my lunch was all sugar and purchased at the Little Dessert Shop in the next street across.

Also an entirely acceptable option....

Last day of invigilating tomorrow, so may head to the Great Western for a pint and a pork bap for lunch.

Another establishment that enjoyed by many from the HEI.

For lunch today I had two coffees, a pot of tea and a large slice of cake.

Went out for lunch with SWMBO today to a new-ish cafe-cum-bistro type place in Ely.

I had a starter of tomatoes, beetroots, blue cheese with a poached duck egg.  Followed by a very large (too large really vs dietary needs) bit very good burger with cheese and bacon, very well cooked and tasty, plus courgettes and panchetta on the side.  No bun of course.

SWMBO had some of my starter, followed by a cheese souffle that looked very good, some greens and thick cut chips with truffle and parmesan.  The chips were good, but could have done with a bit more parmesan for my taste.  She had a tarte tatin for afters, far too sweet and icky for me.

I think I'll have a very light dinner this evening.

Today's lunch was roasted cauliflower, sweet potato, mushrooms, carrots, and tomatoes.  Yummy!
