It is with sadness that I report I have been the victim of a crime…. My doughnuts, so kindly reduced by the charming baker, have today been dishonestly appropriated with the intention to permanently deprive. Simply put, there has been a snack theft.
The suspect was found approximately 12 inches from the property’s packaging and is currently in hiding.
“Dexter” as he’s known locally has white curly hair is approximately 1 foot tall and is 35 (in dog years). A notorious dog burglar, if found I advise you approach this devious treat thief with caution as he has been known to slobber and has previously served time for puddle making.
Still, doughnut worry I’ve resolved to move on from the hole thing…
It’s lunchtime and the curry noodles make an appearance, another student classic!
At 25p a pack they’re a reliable filler and perfectly edible, if a little beige. Utilising vegetarian chicken flavouring it’s a tick in the ethics box but a fail on the quest for protein and fresh food…
This evening it’s the launch of our new office to clients and referrers, I manage to acquire three canapés from passing plates and savour the yum before it’s off to the Asda. My reconnaissance mission earlier in the week has given me some good intel on timing and locations for the second leg of operation woopsie aisle.
Back at the ranch for the debrief. It’s mission accomplished and my rations for the week now have the following additions:
Casserole veg – 10p
Green salad – 10p
Meatballs and gravy – 35p
Fish fingers – 65p
Tiger bread 10p
(I am buzzing for my meatball casserole tomorrow!)
Tonight I’m continuing the tenuous curry theme and I’m trialling chicken curry from a tin. Wish me luck!
Hmmm. My thoughts too…
In other exciting news, if you want to tune in tomorrow I’ll be chatting about the challenge on the breakfast show on BBC Radio Solent at around 8.20am and I’ll be sitting on the sofa with Sally on BBC South Today tomorrow evening – BBC One!
