Well - I found the timer and got side-tracked. I ordered a Chinese yesterday evening and couldn't manage very much of it so there it was, looking at me as I went into the kitchen! So, given that I have a new toy, I divided it into two meals and vacupacked them, ready to go out to the freezer later on. I now have enough stuff for meals for all week. Useful!
So now I'm off upstairs - yes I am, really!
