Default School dinners and lunchboxes

So were you a school dinner or a 'sarnies from home' kid ?

And what lunch box did you have ?

I fluctuated between the shite the dinner ladies served up (and before the advent of burgers, pizzas, and Jamie 'bloody' Oliver's lisping health kick became fashionable) and sandwhiches from home

Didnt have a lunch box, we were poor ....... so I happily walked to school with my lunch in one pocket of the trousers with the big pockets on the side (cant remember what they were called ?), and my excercise books and PE kit in the other leg !!

I always went home for lunch, or to my grandmother if my mum was working...Dutch schools closed for an hour and half and everyone just went home to eat...

Just heard them talking about it on Absolute Radio (the old Virgin station) and seeing as most of you on here are way older than me, thought it would give a bit of a trip down memory lane...

Haha...you guys from South Britain are funny...you call your meals "breakfast, lunch and dinner" yet still call them "dinner ladies" but at least you bring along "lunch boxes".

At least in North Britain, we correctly call them "dinner ladies" because we have "breakfast, dinner and tea". In Scotland, I didn't have a "lunch box" but a wrapped sandwich, which we called a 'piece' and a bottle of Irn Bru I shared with my sister. We were poor as well...lived in shoebox in middle o' road !
