    Halloumi salad followed by strawberries and cream.

    No wine tonight, just a glass of single malt.

    Hope you're feeling better soon @littleme.

    Don't forget you can't post what's for dinner/tea until it actually arrives because one things for sure what you order isn't what you get :)

    Sounds brilliant but I’m surprised you went for the red wine, surely some Caribbean rum would have finished the meal off nicely.
    Oh I do love a rum punch.

    Breakfast. No hot milk, so it's made with cold milk mixed with lukewarm water.

    Builders tea was nice though.

    Wine went better with the cheese as someone forgot to get the bananas for my rum bananas.

    Oh good grief, that looks awful. I was thinking you were in hospital, hadn't realised they'd sent you to HMP Stafford instead...

    It's always a bad sign when they give you a knife with your porridge.

    It's actually an old scalpel that's gone just a bit too blunt...

    Lunch and tea together, so as to not excite you too much.... Or, my dietary hell.

    Lunch was allegedly Chicken, Gravy, veg and sautéed potatoes, and a light toffee youghut and apple slices.

    The veg was either invisable, or had absconded.

    They decided to move me mid afternoon, so my ham salad went out the window & I got...

    AGAIN! :emo: Cheese & crackers were nice, ate half the sandwiches, they seem to be mostly butter.

    :urgh:

    @proactive already asked me that, I never thought you would all guess so easily.

    The phone & charger were difficult to smuggle in though.....

    It's ok there's enough butter on the sandwiches for me to save it up, cover myself in it, the squeeze out if the 4inch gap that the window opens.

    Blimey @littleme do they actually want people to get better?

    Or just die of starvation/ malnutrition/ scurvy so they get a vacant bed?
