So sad.

HOW MANY OF you are eating your lunch at your desk right now, or will do so at some stage this week?

Maybe you’ll go out and treat yourself to a delicious gourmet sandwich or salad, or maybe – as payday taunts you from just over the hill – you’ll cobble together whatever’s languishing in your fridge and presses.
